  2. filtering junk mail

    I would like to be able to add a filter that if a certain word appears it shouldn't even go to junk but just be deleted. I keep getting email that has certain words in it and I just don't want to see that mail at all. Filter works fine to not have mail go to inbox, but would like to be able to do same filtering for junk mail folder. Or set up option where you can say if this word appears in any incoming email just delete it.

  3. Junk Mail Correction

    I had issues with my junk mail on my outlook account. I was only receiving one or two junk mails a day and they would delete themselves the same day. I explained this to the Microsoft support team and all they were ever able to do was suggest me to use the ‘recovery add in’ tool to recover any missed emails. It was also suggested to save the email addresses as a ‘safe sender’ but there was no particular email address that was an issue it was my junk function as a whole. Luckily my junk mail has started to…

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. Alternative to Godaddy for personal domain

    When will we be able to use another registrar other than GoDaddy? or better yet simply being able to setup our own domain name manually? (For those who can manage their DNS/MX records)

    Thanks!

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

  10. 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.

  11. 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.

  12. 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.

  13. 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

  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. I would like it to only have email sent Monday-Friday between 7:30-4:30pm, with an option to deliver immediately if needed. Thanks!

    I would like to have email send between 7:30 and 4:30 with an open to overwrite and send immediately if needed. As far as I am aware this is not currently possible but would be super if it was and I know many users who would use this function if available. Thanks Alison

  20. outgoing

    I really wish I could set up sent mail rules on the web app like I can on the desktop app. I would use the web app exclusively, but I really rely on the ability to add new conversations to my inbox as it helps me to keep track of what conversations are open.
