  1. stop reading my emails, theyre private and are addressed to me, it is illegal to open other peoples post and emails are the same principle!

  2. Enable sorting and grouping for Groups in Outlook 365 navigation

    When viewing groups in Outlook 365 it is really annoying to have them presented in random order - presumably the order they were created or added.

    Please enable a feature to be able to order groups, either by a sort control on the Group header or by manual drag-n-drop in the list. It would also be really useful to be able to arrange groups in folders so that some sort of organisation or structure can be provided to support fast find for the groups I actually need to know about and use, eg, My Groups, My Team's Groups, Others. A…

  3. STOP SPAM IN MY INBOX

    I'm getting a ton of junk email everyday in my inbox that I don't even want to open my mail. I'm tired of sifting through the inbox and deleting. I've tried all your customer support recommendations and nothing works! I've never had this before. It's been for the past month. I keep adding senders to blocked list, even put in the domains and words to block like your support team said but I'm still getting unwanted emails in my inbox and dirty emails that I don't need my kids seeing! They share the email and this is just becoming ridiculous…

  4. ! Please update your credentials (Gmail account shouldn't have anything to do with Microsoft)

    Hi, I keep receiving emails from Outlook saying to update my credentials for another email address I use, however it's a gmail account and has nothing to do with Hotmail or Outlook.

    How can I stop receiving these annoying emails that have nothing to do with Microsoft?

  5. Marking people as not junk mail

    I’ve been getting messages from a contact that isn’t junk mail, and I’ve marked every message he has sent me as not junk, yet outlook still moves it to the junk box.
    Is there a way to mark someone as not junk??
    I tried marking as VIP and even that doesn’t work.

  6. Bring "view message source" option back

    The option "view message source" dissapeared in Outlook beta 2017 version which was very useful for cheking senders and other information like potential spammer emails and so on before opening email.
    Will you add this option back?

  9. Fake email?

    Just got an email from someone I don’t know that says my account will be closed if I don’t update. I’m not clicking the link in the email and can’t find information about an update here. Is the email a fake?

  10. New feedback from Outlook.com

    Hello,
    I have junk filter set to Exclusive, and no entries in my Safe senders and Safe mailing lists. I also have Block attachments, pictures, etc... from senders not in my sender list selected.
    Yes, ALL my email goes to Junk. Could not be happier about it.

    BUT - there are email senders (like ebay or citibank) that Outlook considers 'trusted', and displays remote content of such emails, obviously confirming to the sender that I have opened their email. I am not very happy about it, so why is that, or where is the setting to make that work as…

  15. Improve the spam filter

    Either give us the ability to turn it off, or at least improve learning from using the 'not junk' feature. Legitimate email is increasingly being incorrectly moved to the junk folder, even though the sender and their domain have been added to the address book or safe sender lists. Every day I must go in and mark about 99% of the 'junk' emails as 'not junk', and then the next day, they are back again. Australia has ONE postal provider, but Outlook treats their email notifications as spam, no matter what I do.

  18. 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.
