  1. Instant “Lock/unlock” button

    Integrate option, click of a button to “lock/unlock” your account, for both incoming and outgoing emails. This would be helpful in the case your account gets hacked, you can change password and lock it temporarily or permanently in the case you wish to create a new account, but still have access to previous correspondence.

  3. support chained css selectors

    It's widely known that outlook.com uses _x as a prefix for any class and id selectors. However, only the first selector included in a chain of selectors is correctly prefixed.

    IDEA: Add support to prefix all selectors used in a chained/group scenario!

    Example:
    .foo.bar { . . . } becomes: .x_foo.bar { . . . }

    Based on the outlook prefix model, it should become:
    .xfoo.xbar { . . . }

  4. Verify for spam broken

    Your verify your account with your mobile number page for anti spam, is broken. If I send the code and then refresh the page I can’t type the code in I have to put my number in again and then it says I can’t send the code again until tomorrow even though I have a code but it won’t let me put the code in unless I go through the phase of putting my number in again which you can’t

  5. To be able to change the background colour of emails

    Some dyslexic people can read text a lot easier if the text is on a different colour background to the usual white, the current themes change everything apart from the background of the actual emails. Can we have an option to change the background colour of emails as well as all the menus please?

  6. Please add an option to hide the delete all and mark all as read buttons

    Please add an option to hide the delete all and mark all as read buttons. I don't know why there's an option to do this in one click from the main page to begin with. At the very least I'm hoping that clicking on one of those opens a confirmation window or something.

  10. How about adding an option to modify, add, delete or change content of hotmail folders?

    Current mobile log in into Hotmail (now Outlook) gives no way to modify hotmail folders, except to delete contents!
    What the %$^&%#%% gives? It's a simple subroutine!
    I see that MS had taken the time to add annoying banner ads that I dont want or need. Can't get rid of them! But now theres no way to modify folders on a mobile?
    Are you flicking us all off MS, while adding ads to generate income?

  11. Can only see focused E-mail on cell phones

    When you open outlook from your mobile device, you can't see the second (others) tab, you can only see the focused e-mail page.

  13. Bug report about connecting gmail account

    Outlook support connecting gmail accounts in settings, but the options outlook offered are both doing the same thing.

    Both of this two options would fetch existing emails from Gmail and make subfolders for fetched emails, tested in Safari and Chrome.

    Please check out this report about connecting gmail accounts in outlook setting.

  15. SIGN IN issues and opening new e-mails

    I downloaded the iOS Outlook app, but I did not find it helpful, rather more complicated so I uninstalled it and I use the browser option. Sometimes when I have to write longer e-mails I am unable to do it as I want to do it, and I have to use my computer (and sometimes I am not able to have my computer with me, and that is a waste of time for me)
    The issues I am having appeared recently.
    1. It happens frequently these days when I open outlook.com on Safari browser, I am not able to choose…

  16. Allow users to minimise recipient window when writing emails

    Allow users to minimise/expand the recipient window at the top of the screen when composing emails, to provide more screen room for the content of the email.

  17. Sending Messages no longer works on Mobile set from iPhone

    This is not an idea - more so a break in the current software - on iPhone X, when using the mobile website, the fields disappear when you go to send a message.

  18. Filter spam by words

    I have an incredible number of similar spam messages (from different email addresses) that get sent to my focused inbox when I want them in spam. Most of them are addressed to my email address without the @hotmail.com part and I want a way to filter my messages based on this (or for it to catch more similar messages if one is sent to spam)
