  1. Picture attached

    In the Outlook app, we should be able to have pictures as attachments rather than in the email body along with the text. It is so annoying!

  3. Create a like button and/or an acknowledge button for emails. This would help as a quick responses option.

    Create a like button and/or an acknowledge button for emails. This would help as a quick responses option. I often find myself not wanting to write a full response but just needing to acknowledge or say I agree or like the idea. It would be great if at least on the persons who sends or clicks like if it records that you liked the message.

  4. New Outlook.com "News" Feature / Tab

    I would prefer Microsoft not make my choices for me; forcibly adding "News" feature to Outlook.com is a perfect example. I didn't ask for it, I don't need it and, most importantly, I don't want it, yet, feature is present and I can't delete it. For me, email is a communication tool, not a social tool. Please allow me to choose email features which best suit my needs for myself. Please allow me to delete "News" feature.

  5. Add time condition to rules for messages I send.

    There have been several requests to be able to delay delivery of all messages sent outside of business hours until the beginning of the next business day. This would be an easy rule to set up if "sent during this time" were a criterion on new rules for messages I send. For example, I would set a rule to apply to all messages I send after 6PM and before 7AM, to delay delivery until 7AM the next business day.

  8. Get online help that is easy to fine and use

  9. Suggestions For Outlook.com: Voice Emails - Read & Write Emails by Voice.


    1. Introduce a facility of Voice Emails - Voice Input Based Email Writing & Voice Output Based Email Reading i.e You have to speak & the emails will be written automatically without you typing anything in emails. You have to just click on read out icon & the emails will be read out.

    2. Also introduce Voice based Spelling correction - i.e if there is any mistake in spelling then a voice will come out & notify us that there is spelling mistake & will provide us suggestion for correct spellings.
      Plz forward the suggestion to the concerned person, department.

  10. searching for unread emails

    searching for unread emails, you can do this with the desktop application, but not web application.

    read:no
    Items that have not been read. You can also use read:false to get the same results.

  11. Deleting Inbox messages

    Deleting inbox messages ; Make the option to delete messages from the inbox more Secure so the whole inbox doesn't land in the trash. I had 6,000 + Unread inbox emails deleted!! I am recovering from ID theft and only my Outlook email which I haven't checked in years had the evidence I needed to Press charges and file a claim with Equifax for their Data breech.

  12. Show the emails you enumerate

    How about showing in my inbox and sent mails instead of a blank area as if I have no mail or didn’t send messages on my iPhone?! Also, you specify the number of messages in spam and deleted mail, but when I click on those they show no mails from spammers or emails I recently sent. No wonder gmail is more popular

  15. Options of selecting deleted duration date on junk email.

    The duration of date of 10 days in junk mail is too, too short. The are some important emails that goes into junk. it needs to be increase, give some options as 15 days, 30 days or 60 days, LET THE CUSTOMES DECIDE. Some life are too busy to be at computer everyday, so the junk mail can have some important inbox mail, we need to keep or before it gets deleted.

  16. Suggestions


    1. Allow the subject line on received emails to be changed/edited like you can in MS Outlook.

    2. Automatically open/expand folders with new/unread emails auto filtered into folders through Rules. Currently I have to open each folder which contains a subfolder just to see if there are any new/unread emails. I've missed a few utilities bills already.

    3. Make each email address (I currently have 5) and subsequent folders a different/alternating color to make it easier to differentiate.

    4. Make it much easier to get to all the Rules you have set up. I can't find a way to get to them easily -…

  17. Stop moving emails to junk after they landed in inbox already

    I sometimes receive an email in my mailbox which later gets moved into junk automatically. This must stop since it sometimes affects legitimate emails too. Once it was in the inbox, leave it there. I cant afford to lose track of an email because you removed it to the junk box in the meantime

  18. Stop blocking automated messages

    I never receive automated password reset emails (not in junk folder), which means I have to then email in to ask for it - i mean websites where I’ve forgotten login details, and have to reset. Please sort it out!

  19. Be able to send bulk emails in Outlook Mail

    Currently, we are not able to send bulk emails and was informed that Microsoft Outlook has the ability to send only 30 emails per minute. The emails we send are Press Releases that require an attachment to be sent with the email.

    It would be useful for Outlook to be able to do this or have an add on product that supports this function.

  20. Option to remove underline from Outlook Email signature hyperlinks

    It is so annoying not to be able to format email signature in Outlook(for business users). If you don't use links that's fine but if you add links to phone number, google maps, mail, website etc. it looks awful with all being underlined, especialy after spending a lot of time building a nice email signature. Most email clients have such options.
