  1. Let me delete default folders

    I would like to have the option to delete (or hide) via menus the various default folders. These include "Conversation History", "Archive", "RSS Subscriptions", etc. I will never use them, but I do use many other folders, and I'd like to keep my list pared down to just the folders I use rather than the ones Microsoft wants to force me to look at.

  6. Recovering deleted mail should require a password

    Although my mail is password protected someone could, if they got in, access my deleted mail. This is a privacy issue and I believe a password should be required to recover deleted mail.

  7. 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!

  10. 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.

  13. Blocked account

    Dear,
    My phone had a bug and disconnected my outlook, when I tried to put it back it said that it looked suspicious so I needed to "Recover your account", the only issue is that the linked account to this email address is the one I did when I was 10 years old. I still remember the password of that account but same I cant access it, as I have not for a while. So now they asked me the last email I sent, and to whom, which I do not recall, and I have no way to recover my…

  14. I would really appreciate it if I could download my files to my phone again, you know, because that might be important from time to time.

    While I'm on the subject, having the ability to send a decent sized file would be nice too

  16. Email automatically comes in archive folder

    For some reason I have certain emails that I receive directly in the archive folder instead of the inbox. Because of this I missed those emails because I cannot see them coming in. How can I stop this from doing it?

  17. Daewoo is a huge money laundery suspect.

    To Outlook email manager,

    Daewoo is responsible for 100Billion dollar money laundery since 2001. They will be properly tried and will pay huge damage compensation to money laundery victims. I hope MS Soft company does not suffer from this reality. Otherwise I am not able to use your service. Please think carefully and reconsider your advertisement contract with them... I don't welcome any of daewoo companies... Please stop advertising Daewoo on this email webpage...(amiwelcome@outlook.kr)
    Thanks for your attention.

    Salut.

  19. How do I open emails that are not showing when I hit refresh? It shows 3 unread emails but no emails are in the folder.

    Fix glitches or make it easier to open unread emails. I keep seeing 3 unread emails which are phantom cos they don’t show up?!
