  1. Emails marked as junk should be blocked

    Basically, to mark them as spam and block the sender emails, we have to do these steps, which is annoying:
    1- Mark as spam
    2- Go into Trash
    3- Block them

        • allow for sorting of folders by frequency of us

          It would be great if my folderss in the Folder Pane were displayed either by the most recent used OR the most frequently used, rather than alphabetically or by a self sort

            • Inbox becoming spam without being marked as spam

              For some unknown reason important emails which normally arrive in my inbox have now started going straight to my spam box without my having marked the sender as spam. Please sort it

              • Merge and split conversations

                Sometimes email threads go off track into a different idea or sometimes people send through new separate emails about an existing thread. It would be great if we had the ability to rearrange our conversations (split and merge existing conversations) rather than the grouping just be done automatically. I know there are workarounds with third party addins and macros but I really do think it would be a good addition to the core functionality of Outlook.

                  • Add a field next to subject line for "Action needed," "information," etc.

                    My boss wants everyone to type "Action" or "Information" in the subject line of emails. I think it would be better to have a field where we could select the type of email it is, and then people could sort or filter in their in-box to make sure they address action items first. It could be called "class" or "level."

                    • Allow me to delete an email from the Desktop Alert

                      In previous version (Windows 7) when i got a desktop alert for an email i was afforded the option to delete the email right then if I knew it was unwanted, duplicate, or whatever. But in Windows 10 with Outlook 2016 i simply delete the alert and i have to go back and open Outlook to delete the unwanted email. I really miss that feature.

                        I don't have, or don't know, of a way to define an outlook message rule which would automatically mark incoming emails as 'phishing' email.
                        Add a rule option to move messages to a 'phishing' folder to be reviewed by outlook engineers/engines.

                        • I think outlook is still slow. And have to be better like Gmail for email

                          It takes longtime for the connection to open the outlook after signing in and closing. For news feed is brilliant.

                          • How do I bulk select an Mark as Junk, create a new folder, do advanced search? All basic features that were in the original Hotmail.

                            How do I ...
                            Bulk select and Mark as Junk?
                            Create a new folder?
                            Do an advanced search based on dates/folders/name/domain/etc?

                            All basic features that were in the original Hotmail but have been buried or removed for some reason in the oversimplified idiot proof user interface of outlook on a smartphone.

                            • Show the number of email addresses behind all internal distribution lists

                              Show the number of email address that an internal distribution list has behind it.

                              I keep getting one or two mails per day using huge distribution lists (hundreds or more employees) - a sensible sender would not send to 100+ people if he knew that he will spam so many recipients

                                      It is necessary that the mail have the option of guaranteeing the letter in the design part for which we have tired eyesight or other visual situations that you did not consider in the Spanish version. Thank you worse attend and correct and the omission because to enlarge manually every time it opens is an unnecessary inconvenience.
