  1. Login screen changed

    Please put the login screen back to having user name and password entry on the same screen and not two screens. It is so annoying. What had to be "fixed" that made you do this?

  3. Limit wasted space. Make emails easier to visually scan. Now it's almost impossible

  4. New feedback from Outlook.com

    I have been using Outlook for years. I certainly do not agree with all the changes you are making, especially when you now want us to pay in order to have features we do not want just to remove your ads from our page. I have always used my own ad blocker and now you want me to change that so you won`t take up the space on the right side of my page, it is ridiculous!

  5. Accessing mail while overseas

    If you haven't noticed this planet has gone global. People travel everywhere, yet you don't have even that much common sense to get something in the options to enable us to access email when overseas. Is it that hard to for example generate codes we can use and then that it locks the region someone is in till they either want to move again if they travel to different countries or come back home, or for example have a trusted mobile phone, laptop, etc. to be recognised by Microsoft even when you are in a different location. And I can…

  6. Bring back the Unread Mail from All folders option

    In Outlook for Desktop and Outlook Web Access you have the ability to view All Unread Mail from All Folders. Now you don't have this option in outlook.com (Office 365 email). If you have mail filtered to a ton of folders this becomes a headache and is causing me to re-work my workflow for email

  7. Toggle/Switch Between Accounts

    Toggle/Switch Between Accounts the same way you can do with gmail accounts. I have more than one gmail, and google allows me to switch between the accounts very easily. I'd like to see the same feature implemented in hotmail.

  10. 'Add to Safe Senders list'

    Add an option/drop down menu to the 'Not Junk' button to easily add someone to the 'Safe Senders list'.

    It doesn't make sense to me that you can easily add someone to the 'blocked' list by selecting the email in the Junk Folder and selecting the option from a drop down list at the top, but the opposite option is not as easily accessible.

    Over the past few months I have missed more legitimate emails because they have been auto-classified as junk, than ever before.

    Surely the simplest fix to this increasing annoyance is to provide quick and easy access…

  11. New feedback from Outlook.com

    The right side Adsense Ads are annoying. I dont know why you need Ads to earn money. Your competitor (Gmail) is giving the free service without any ads(web version) then why you are still showing it.

    If you remove the Ads then you are in the competition of Gmail. Please remove it.

    Otherwise everything is fine, simple UI looks good.

    Thanks for the free service.

  12. Improve the spam filter

    Either give us the ability to turn it off, or at least improve learning from using the 'not junk' feature. Legitimate email is increasingly being incorrectly moved to the junk folder, even though the sender and their domain have been added to the address book or safe sender lists. Every day I must go in and mark about 99% of the 'junk' emails as 'not junk', and then the next day, they are back again. Australia has ONE postal provider, but Outlook treats their email notifications as spam, no matter what I do.

  13. Being able to report e-mails in Outlook phone app as phishing scams / spam!

    I can report phishing scams from Outlook Email on my PC but there is no option for this from my iPhone when checking my e-mails on your app on my phone - can you add this please as all I can do is delete stuff or move to my junk folder so the only way to cut down on getting this spam is block each address individually on my phone. Very time consuming and is not helping you or others identify it as phishing scams or spam.

  15. Change default canledar name, more functions

    1 Allow changing the name of default calendar.

    2 the time shown in front of each clander event is so untidy, 12p, 1p, 1:30p, what is this? this is not clean, neat and tidy at all!!!

    3 Layout and functions refer to Apple's clander, including drag and move a whole single event to another day. button position, symmetry, beautiful

    4 introduce Chinese calendar

  17. Alias with different displayed name

    Display different name for each alias. I speak English , Japanese and Chinese. So I create 3 alias to deal with the emails in 3 language. But I can't change the alias displayed name. They are using the same name.

  19. restore block filter

    Return "block all mail to inbox not on contact list" filter. It is absurd to have to daily add new addresses to a block or safe list and clearly you changed that feature for your own purposes. I will switch to a different mail system if I continue to get spam in my inbox.

  20. opt-out

    Can we have an opt-out for the new look? I don't need to see my inbox at the same time as a specific email. I would much rather have wide view of subject lines and emails (especially since I'm now having to scroll sideways to read emails which is not helpful at all)

    It also takes more steps to move emails to folders because it doesn't display them all unless you click something and then it loads an extra box - unnecessary. And on mobile, I can't seem to mass delete items, which was most import for me.
