  4. Personal contact card

    The outlook.com account holder needs a personal contact card to identify the user. The information about the email account holder is never consolidated and is intentionally scattered on different webpages never leading to identifying the inbox, sent items and outbox owner

  6. Deleting emails

    There needs to be an option of how many emails at a time can be deleted other than 11 emails deleted at a time when selecting ‘SELECT ALL’ option.. it’s absolutely tedious & so frustrating.

  8. Search function does not work on mobile devices, continuous re organising of emails in any folder which prevents scrolling to find emails

    Improve functionally on mobile devices. Does not return search results, continuously reorganises emails preventing scrolling to find emails. Regularily does not load any contents of folders. Extremely disappointing product

  12. Allow users to disable default charms in calendar events

    I use only the browser version of the calendar on outlook.com. I hate the charm icons that automatically appear next to appointments and events that I create or edit in my browser calendar.

    For example, a cake charm automatically appears when the event contains the word "birthday", or a knife and fork charm automatically appears when the event contains the word "lunch". These charms add visual clutter and take up valuable space. I find them silly, useless, often irrelevant to my event, and a nuisance. By making the charms a "default" feature, Microsoft assumes all users need or want such…

  13. easy password reset. Touch ID for iPhone

    I was locked out of all three of my Hotmail accounts for weeks because of a problem on Microsoft’s end. Older people can’t remember passwords. Consider implementing apple’s Touch ID for iPhone to make it easier for people with memory problems like me to recover their password.

    Reset your email to default (NEW). No emails accepted from anyone all subscriptions removed, no spam accepted. Only friends accepted after restart and initial contact you make.

  16. Invite Attendees wont accept email address with o'apostrophe

    When inviting attendees to new event, Outlook Calendar now won't accept email address with apostrophe eg in format "john.o'smith@agency.gov.xx" (generates error box "One or more attendees have invalid email addresses"), even though same email address is used to send emails and even forward received calendar events. This is a new development. Outlook used to let me invite to this (same) address - now just get error - is there any setting in Outlook Calendar to fix this incorrect error/block ??

  17. Empty Folder Options

    There needs to be a way of emptying junk mail and trash folders on the mobile version of Outlook like you can on the desktop version.

  18. Spam

    Spam that i indicate and want removed should just vanish and not go to my deleted folder.
    Also when i choose junk, many are not being blocked. It never has an exact count of what i am blocking.
    Thank you for letting me give my view.

  19. 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!

  20. Get rid of that goddam CONVERSATION HISTORY in Outlook. I don't use conversations. Make it optional.

    Get rid of that goddam CONVERSATION HISTORY in Outlook. I don't use conversations and I suspect a lot of other Outlook users don't use it. Why do you nerds insist on making everyone in your image? Make the **** thing optional.
