  1. Personal contact card

    The outlook.com account holder needs a personal contact card to identify the user. The information about the email account holder is never consolidated and is intentionally scattered on different webpages never leading to identifying the inbox, sent items and outbox owner

  2. Delete Contact like Spam: 1 button!!

    Spam/junk comes in, we select it or click on it & a few icons appear. Why must an electronic address book however be so much more complicated?!? 1 Button & contact/junk/trash is no longer available to sight!!

  3. Contacts interferences with OUTLOOK APP for Android

    Please, let users edit/remove "contacts" from the ARCHIVE folder when you open the left panel.
    Also, Outlook APP for Android is always recommending those people when you want to share an archive with your frecuent contacts and it's really annoying.
    Thank you.

  4. Keep contacts up to date with latest information from Global Address List (GAL)

    Need a way to synchronize the information in my Outlook local contacts with the latest from the global address book.

    Outlook offers the opportunity to do it individually for each of the people in my contact list. It is, however, it is not practical with over a thousand contacts.

    Outlook Social Connected used to do this I have many contacts with the Notes field with records of all the changes that were made to the contact over time). With people changing assignments / locations, the information in my local address book is quite out of date.

    It would also be…

  5. In the contact section have a blocking option

    Just like Facebook or any other social media platforms there are options to block a contact...we can block emails from coming in such as spam etc but we can't easily access the blocking option for contacts..and even once we have accessed this the contact is still able to email us...we need a button that we can block and unblock people in our contact list but so that the blocked person can no longer email the person blocking. Just like Facebook, once your blocked there you can not send messages anymore and it tells you the person can't be reached... Outlook…

  6. Allow customizable fields

    I switch to outlook email from gmail due to gmail is blocked in some countries where I travel and live from time to time.
    I like outlook email, however I like the customizable fields in gmail contacts. For example I have multiple home phones for each country and multiple home addresses. When using gmail, I was able to add and customize the labels for each phone and address.
    Right now, it is painful as I have to use gmail contacts for my contact list. This prevents me from entirely switching to outlook.
    Looking forward to a better and flexible contact…

  7. Microsoft family contacts

    Create family contacts that synchronise contacts across accounts in that family. It doesn’t make sense for each family member to maintain the contact details individually (birthday , address, phone numbers, etc)

  8. Allow me contact mx.google.com

    Why can’t we contact certain emails, even when they supposedly have the right to first send us some programmed emails?

  12. Efficiently add contact info when adding contact from an email messaage

    When adding a new contact by right clicking on an email address in a message it would be helpful if there was a way for the full contact editing window to open up so their title, company, mobile number, office number, etc. could easily be added from one view. This used to happen for me before converting to Office 365, but now I get a contact window with dropdown menus for Email, Phone, IM, Work, etc. but have to go through many more clicks to add what used to be so simple in the full contact view.

  13. Repeated contacts

    There are multiple contacts in outlook.
    I recommend you to use Google's Contacts.
    It automatically finds your repeated contacts
    And asks if you wish to join them.
    It also recommends Vietnam code change
    And changes in your contacts.
    Updates.
    However Hotmail stayed long years ago.

  14. The drone identification numbers...(DIN). This email account I have will not be confused with inside outside drone, will it? As a registered

    A DIN drone identification number in visual arts as an inside outside security system anywhere visual, auditory, sensory programs are used artificially, how can I rest knowing that my items purchased is not the idea of Cemetery Grounds? A person can own a Cemetery and differentiate the fact I do not live their no matter what my bedding could be a homeless quest. Registration of a Drone is not a person right. Remember people just Vegging Out, tired and that was a layman terminology communication? Now you could think a person is Droning, not paying attention, and think a person…

  16. Multiple contacts within groups

    Grouping contacts and multiple mailings is essential. It is a function I have used for years. The web version is limited to less than 10 names. This is useless. I have to switch to a non Microsoft product.
