  3. sender's email address not viewable?

    We used to be able to see the sender's actual email address in the inbox when hovering over their "name" with the mouse cursor.

    This does not work anymore. Very unsafe.

    I now have to open the virus ridden email to see who it's from, in order to verify whether or not it is from a "fake" or imposter sender.

    Please bring back the hover.

  10. Make the delete option for an unwanted folder work

    Despite having a right-click menu available for one's folders, regardless of how many times I click 'Delete' on the RSS Subscriptions Folder, it magically reappears.

    I currently have no RSS Subscriptions and never use them, and they're not even activated in my Outlook 2016.

    What is the point in having a 'Delete' option in the menu when it won't work? Please fix this, thank you.

  11. Option to switch between the new beta and the previous version

    New version that was rolled out during September 2018 is way slower than the previous one and it also lacks basic functions we were used to, like for example the option to massively Move all Emails from a recipient elsewhere ( it was under Move To > Move all email from )

    I am unable to even locate how to turn off Favorites in the upper left or move to the bottom.

    You had a simple button switching between the new and old version and it now gone, we need that so we may choose what version suits us best.

  14. Update security

    Was blocked access to my hotmail because visiting another country and couldn't send myself the text to unlock it so went through a large questionnaire process to get into my emails only to be told to change my password and when I went to add the security option of sending an email to another address (my husbands Gmail works fine) only to be told once again to send a text to my phone anyway! Why did I go through this process for nothing?! Pathetic

  18. Stop. Whatever Outlook is doing and sending me stuff to my hotmail- stop. I hate outlook, period. Stop.

    My hotmail gets messages from outlook on when my bills are due because it basically reads my emails. Stop it. I know when to pay my bills. I already get emails from the places where my bills are due! I don’t need outlook’s help. Yes, I have already gone through the settings; and it still happens. So STOP!!
