  3. auto reply

    We can't create an auto reply without having to create a rule and leave outlook open and the computer on for it to work. Not a very good option!

  4. Remove Upgrade to Premium Advert

    Remove the Upgrade to Premium box - if i wanted to pay for my inbox i would,
    As your agent said:
    " I understand where you coming from and I too wouldn’t want to have this kind of advertisement, since I feel like I am forced to pay just to remove that feature"

  6. Fix "back button" use/action

    When reading an email on outlook.com, let the back button take you back to the inbox/last folder rather than back to the webpage you visited BEFORE going to Outlook.com

  7. Mobile font

    Please change the mobile font back to what it was. It's almost painful to look at.

  8. The inbox font size is still WAY too big. Please give me the option to reduce it.

    The inbox font size is still WAY too big. Please give us an option to reduce this so we can see more items at once in the mail folders' list view.

  9. Bring back the check box

    There used to be a check box next to each mail that allowed me to select multiple mails and then move them to another folder or delete them at once. Now that it's gone, its takes so much time to do so. Please put it back!

  10. Let us rename the "Archive" folder

    With recent accounts, the archive folder is simply named "Archive" and can't be deleted or renamed. That's fine, I won't discuss this choice.

    However, if you renamed your Archive folder in the past, back when it was possible, you are now stuck with the name your once chose, and that can be a problem : Back in january 2017, I renamed this folder "2017" to reflect the current year. Now that we are in 2018, there's nothing I can do to change this.

    The rename feature do not work anymore for the Archive folder.

    Please let us edit the name…

  11. Retain Hotmail User Interface

    Please create a display option that leaves my mailbox looking like it did under Hotmail. I am used to Hotmail, I liked it, and I never asked to be upgraded to anything.

    Please create an option so users who preferred the old appearance and functionality can remain comfortable.

  12. Renaming a folder!!

    Your system is not user friendly at all. I have the mobile app and the internet version, in both of them I couldn't change a folder name. What has happened to caring about your customers ease of use instead of money in your pockets from contributors.

  14. delete 7 messages at a time?

    Why can I only delete 7 messages at a time. How do you expect me to delete over 500 messages. Not 7 at a time.

  15. Outlook sign in Background wallpaper

    Hi Outlook.com Team,

    I firstly commend you for all you're doing to make Outlook a better service. However, I have noticed a new wallpaper/backdrop/picture which appears behind the Outlook/hotmail login screen which I hate. It maybe OK for the person/s who posted it their, but due consideration should be given to the type of format used when designing for a wide audience (millions) like myself who may have different taste. It would be wise therefore to always insert or add blank/neutral backgrounds/wallpapers which have the minimal effect to cause offence/dislike or/and give the user like myself the option/preference to change…

  16. Delete contacts and select all button for deleting mail from inbox

    Allow your users to be able to delete ALL contacts directly from the "people" section, I don't want ANYONE in my address book, bloody frustrating as it streams nobodies into my phone contacts.
    Allow a select all button when deleting emails in inbox, I have like 15000 emails maybe more and having to individually select them to delete them, your JOKING right?! Honestly hate outlook because of these 2 things. I keep coming back to see if you've updated and changed these things and nup you don't so please do!

  17. An easy way to update my info so I will be able to recover my account. Can't figure out how to do it!

    I thought i forgot my password and tried to recover it but I have a new phone number, can't figure out how to change it, and the email I used I'm locked out of and can't recover. I just wanna go to my account and be able to update my info since it is obvious that I would never be able to recover it. Luckily I remembered my password but I will never be able to recover the other one since I don't know my own information. Which I don't understand either. Can someone please tell me how to change…

  18. Safe link (SafeLink) feature is impeding URL visibility

    Starting earlier this month for me (I think it's being rolled out gradually), non-MS URLs in incoming Outlook.com mail have taken the form of what you see below (I've lopped off the majority of it, but it goes on and on, typically with hundreds of characters).
    https://nam03.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=https................

    The only thing that Support seems to know about this is:

    1) That it's supposed to be a new feature only for Premium users: https://support.office.com/en-us/article/Advanced-security-features-in-Outlook-com-Premium-551ddf23-7f35-4697-8a71-30b3359362dd

    2) That Outlook Engineering will roll out a future release to improve the look of the safelinks.

    No word as to HOW it will be improved (no…

  19. Make it easier to add folders!

    Namely, when moving mail to folders, include option for new folders at the end of the folder list, and the same at the bottom of the list of folders down the left hand side.
