  1. I'm old don't like change much. But Hotmail was my first email account and still love it you've got the calendar other email doesn't have.

    I like it the way it is please don't change it too much! Like I said I'm old and don't like change but love that Hotmail or Outlook whichever it's called has the calendar and other great things that most emails just don't have. It does a decent job if filtering out the spam and if I get a scam email I'm old enough to recognize it. So I forward on to our state attorneys office let them look into it. Keep up the good work I'm sure it's not easy!! It was my first email and still the one…

  2. 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.

  4. On Android, MSN outlook, it would be nice if MSFT LET people compose and Send an email. You guys STILL do not get the meaning of Intuitive

    For Compose use an tap on item called "COMPOSE "
    FOR "Send" use a TAP on item called "SEND".

    YES, please do!

  7. Stop making it so hard!

    I have a great idea, dont make it so hard to update phone numbers! As you take privacy so 'seriously' I dont have the ability to log in when and where I actually need to use the account, you make it exceptionally hard to update my phone number! I only use my Skype account in emergencies, in tbis case to unlock mg credit card from Peru, I have changed my phone number but cannot find away to update it, your help sites are useless... So have attempted to revalidate my account but you ask the most ridiculous questions I have…

  8. Do not use MSN as main email.

    After 1/4 century using MSN as primary email, MSN locked up when I needed it. Now, after a month MSN is working. Too late, because I had too transfer all necessary mail to GMAIL. The major player is down for a month? So disappointed.

  9. 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.

  13. 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…

  14. 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.

  15. Blind copy and Replying to all

    Today I was blind copied on an email. Not noticing that I was blind copied, I hit reply all and sent comments. If a person in blind copied, I would think the reply all option should only go to the sender.

  16. Have you ever tried deleting selected emails off outlook from a mobile phone? Its pretty annoying when you go to select multiples then....

    Fix the tick box to delete.
    Everytime I select the lines I want delete, if you dont, with pin point accuracy hit the select box, it de-selects everything you have just selected.
    This is highly frustating.
    Will be changing email provider if not fixed soon.

  17. Microsoft almost got me stuck in Mexico.

    I’m from Canada and went on vacation to Mexico. I ran out of money and had to get a money transfer from Canada. I couldn’t accept it because your security is too high and locked my account because I tried to sign in in a different country. Now I’m currently in Mexico without any money. Thanks Microsoft. I tried to “recover” my account twice and I guess I didn’t give you enough information. Super disappointed, I could’ve been stuck here if it weren’t for my friends lending me money.

  18. New feedback from Outlook.com

    Make it easier to block senders. The option to "block" seems no longer available on the "junk" drop-down menu. sifting through several nested menus and then having to manually type the email address is way too cumbersome, but seems to be the only option at this time.

  19. 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.

  20. Emails do not display correctly in the Beta

    The very first email that I looked at in the Beta version of Outlook did not display correctly. This happened to be a daily newsletter from the Times of London. I had already looked at it before switching to the Beta version, and indeed did so again after changing back, and it was formatted perfectly correctly . In the Beta version, what should have been links to "read the full story", followed by a small arrow, filled the whole screen with a large blurry Arrow without text. This another display problems made the email virtually unreadable. It was almost like…
