  1. Fix your web browser for phones.

    I do not want to add the application to my phone, yet using the web browser on my iPhone is ******* atrocious. Its so buggy. Even just trying to tap my email to open it the side bar opens up to check off the boxes to delete the email. Even just trying to make this message it was irritating. If I didn't have years of emails on this, I would have deleted this outlook account long ago. This is a garbage system.

  2. Allow "Unblock account" to use backup email not just SMS

    I can reset my password using the backup email I gave you, but you won't use it to unblock my account, you only accept SMS. I don't have SMS. Please allow the backup email on file to be used for account unblock as well as password resets. Also, "Contact Support" requires sign in, which you can't do if your account is blocked, please allow that from the registered backup email as well.

  3. Get Rid of the "Files" Section above Folders

    The new "Files" section is slow to load, is inefficient, and not needed. It's easier to use the search function to find old e-mails and the files needed.

  4. New feedback from Outlook.com

    Hotmail is unaccesible and useless when traveling overseas from US.
    It would be nice to be able to use it while traveling.

  5. Please improve blocked senders function

    What is the point of blocking spammers, only to have our Spam folders (which we need to check regularly for legitimate emails) filling up with offensive ****/dating scam emails from Appspot etc? When you block an email address or domain name, those emails should be firewalled and not get through period! Please fix Outlook so that blocked emails are firewalled - not sent to the Spam folder!

  8. Out of Office messages

    Would it be possible to allow the "Out of office" reply to be sent more than once to senders ?

    Thank you

  9. Gmail's label:unread equivalent for advanced search

    Currently, working through to clean unread emails is very difficult without the ability to search for something similar to the 'label:unread' functionality in gmail.

    By using that in the searchbar, rather than via a drop down or filter option, we can append other advanced search criteria such as 'label:unread from:*@abc.xyz" and better work through the inbox.

    This is now TABLE STAKES for any power user.

  10. Give me total number of emails, not 'items'

    Please show me how many emails I have in my inbox. No, I don't care about how many "items" there are; that's such a useless bit of info. Tell me how many email chains I have in my inbox and folders.

    P.S. I hate that my new company forces me to use Outlook. Gmail is much MUCH easier to understand and use.

  12. 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.

  16. Block senders Alias

    I am receiving tons of junk emails, often the alias is the same but the address/domain changes every time to avoid being blocked (and that is something I unfortunately can do only from website and not from mobile!!!!!!) So at least if I could be able to block senders alias I would block 5 6 emails at one time.

  19. 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!
