  1. Easier access to Info and Clarifications to Icons Meanings.

    Menu / Navigation Bar in Outlook.com / Outlook Mail has the four Icon in the upper right hand side.
    These is the : Skype, Bell, Settings, and Question Mark.
    These Icons can have other Icons appear within them.
    For example : I get a GEAR or STAR appear with my Question Mark Symbol.
    I would like to find out what it means but i cannot find any reference to the Change in Icon meaning.
    It would be nice to have a bit more clarification and easy access to what it means.

  3. Prefer the format that has Outlook mail in one tab and Calendar in another, that doesn't change with changing e-m accounts.

  4. Put back the option to view the pic site on mobile devices! Why would you remove this? Now, I can't access all settings unless using a PC.

  5. Deactivate delete button if no mail selected

    Why is the delete button active, even when no mail has been selected (selection box ticked)?

    Very dangerous. Whatever mail has been highlighted gets deleted!

  6. subject on forwarded email

    Why do you make forwarded email so complicated. When is it going to be easy to change the email subject in a forwarded email? Seriously, your new outlook needs serious improvement. And basic stuff like that should not even need to be mentioned.

  8. Responsive design / float toolbar

    Perhaps a little responsive design with regard to the options on the right? When snapped to the right hand side of a 1920 x 1800 display, the window content is about 40px wider than the window. Frustrating.

  9. STOP MESSING UP MY EMAIL

    My Idea: STOP MESSING UP MY EMAIL.
    When I try to send a link in an email, you now insist on inserting a "preview". DON'T. STOP IT.
    When a package is posted to me, you insist on polluting my calendar with unnecessary entries. DON'T. STOP IT.

    STOP TRYING TO FORCE THINGS ON THAT I NEITHER WANT NOR NEED.

  10. Allow creation of NOT rule

    Allow a rule so that contacts NOT in your Contacts list or Address Book be moved to a different folder. This would allow you to keep only emails from Contacts in your Inbox, and have the rest in another folder.

  13. Not really liking the new Outlook at all


    1. The flagged emails need to be near the to so you can actually find them.


    2. There's not enough colour differentiating the areas. All too white and confusing.


    3. Please put "junk mail" back at the top of the folders on the mobile version. When you have a lot of personal folders it ends up being right at the bottom and takes ages to find. Not at all user friendly.

  14. Message Alert

    There should be a number (in parenthesis) in the tab bar to alert you when you receive email! Everyone else has this basic feature.... I can't believe you don't! It's annoying to have to always click to check. Is this something that I am missing? Thanks!

  15. automatically eliminate 'show blocked content' from my safe senders list.

    give me a way to allow content (pictures) from ebay@ebay.com. I put them on my 'safe' list but that didn't help. I don't want to have to repeatedly click 'show blocked content' every time I get a notification from ebay - as I get many per day.

  17. Improve FROM field with just the email address (omit waffle)

    Hi, could the FROM field be simplified to just the email address of the sender ?

    Sometimes it gets really confusing with so much waffle eg one email I had yesterday said ...

    From: RecycleInBristolUK@yahoogroups.com <RecycleInBristolUK@yahoogroups.com> on behalf of aaa.aaa@gmail.com [RecycleInBristolUK] <RecycleInBristolUK-noreply@yahoogroups.com>

    That would have been better +much clearer as ...
    From: <RecycleInBristolUK-noreply@yahoogroups.com> on behalf of joanna.tidy@gmail.com

    Can that be improved please ?

  18. Layout has too much padding

    The layout is too spread out. On my screen I only see the last eight messages, the font is too big and there's too much padding and wasted space.

  20. Don't show unread count on Deleted Items folder

    This is a minor issue, but the previous version of Outlook's interface had a feature where it didn't show the count of unread emails next to Deleted Items.

    If an email has been deleted, the user probably didn't care about having not read it yet, and it was simply a nice feature for those of us who like to keeps things tidy and have all our emails looking "done".
