  1. Delete all in delete folder

    I would love to see a select all option for permanently deleting messages in the delete folder. I have this option on my computer but not my mobile device, and I have no room to download more apps. 1800+ old messages is difficult to delete by groups of five. Thanks.

  2. Please add support for complications on the new Apple Watch 4 faces

    I would like to request that you add support for the new infograph modular watch face for Apple Watch 4. You currently support the regular modular watch faces. Also, if possible, please add support for the all the new inforgraph watch faces. It would be great to get my outlook calendar on as many watch faces as possible as my company does not allow our outlook work email to go thru the built in apple mail/calendar apps, which are available as a complications on almost every watch face.

    Thank you!

  3. 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 With people changing assignments / locations, the information in my local address book is quite out of date.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…

  4. Improved spam reporting: how about 'report as spam' under the junkmail dropdown? And then MS actually DOES something about spam?

    Improved spam reporting: how about 'report as spam' under the junkmail dropdown? And then MS actually DOES something about spam? There is no way to prevent the hundreds of nuisance spam emails I get weekly. Reaching out to Microsoft for help has been a waste of time. There is no way to create rules for all the spam emails, nor is there a way to block them all. Currently one can report as phishing. What good does that do? Apparently none.

  5. New feedback from Outlook.com

    The right side Adsense Ads are annoying. I dont know why you need Ads to earn money. Your competitor (Gmail) is giving the free service without any ads(web version) then why you are still showing it.

    If you remove the Ads then you are in the competition of Gmail. Please remove it.

    Otherwise everything is fine, simple UI looks good.

    Thanks for the free service.

  7. 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.

  8. You should give customers the possibility to deactivate the safelinks feature

    I am an Office 365 Home subscriber. Yesterday, my Outlook started suddenly use safelinks feature that changes links in emails to a very complicated form, which is visible when using plain text, as I do. Outlook support staff was very helpful and they are going to deactivate the feature. However, I would prefer that this kind of change would be optional and, at the very least, the customer could independently deactivate the feature. It does not make sense that I have to contact customer support in order to receive emails on which links do not look terrible. The problems of…

  9. Allow text-decoration none

    Allow text-decoration none in html signatures, to avoid the default underline. Clickable can be indicated by different layout styles.

  10. The 2-point verification has not helped to secure my emails. I have two separate emails with Outlook and both have been hacked several times

    The 2-point verification has not helped to secure my accounts. I have two separate email accounts with Outlook and both have been hacked into. Today alone I have had to change the password on both accounts 3 times today. Both accounts have the 2-point verification and I also downloaded the separate Authenticator App. How do I recover my accounts?

  13. 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!

  18. After deleting message please return me to where I was in the list of messages

    After I delete a message (when I am looking at email on my phone), I am sent back to the top of the list of messages. I would like to be able to continue where I left off instead of going back to the top and having to scroll down and find where I was.

  20. recovering accidentally deleted calendar items

    A calendar item is easily accidentally removed. Can you make a folder with deleted items so we can put them back if needed. A right mouse click could do the job.
    Same time, changed appointments are stored in the same folder in their original settings so we can recover them too. Specially when using apples calendar the time of an appointment is so easily changed.
