  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  5. Bring back the cleanup mailbox by date button in the OWA (O365)

    O365 Administrators used to be able to 'clean up' user's mailboxes based on date. This option has recently gone missing from the OWA and can only be done by creating a sweep rule on each individual user's account. This is incredibly inconvenient!

  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!

  9. In outlook.com on mobile os, allow the ability to mark email as not spam.

    The mobile site for outlook.com needs the ability to mark email as spam, and the ability to mark suspected spam as not spam. This is possible only in a desktop browser.

    It is also not possible in the Outlook iOS app.

  10. 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 ??

  15. Search not working

    I am reading people want to search without scrolling and the answers are the same. Contact support. My search is not working and it is a huge inconvenience that I have to scroll through many emails to find the one versus using my search feature. It seems to be a major problem that wants to be addressed individually instead of just fixing the issue. Thank you

  16. Amazing what people write reading our emails lol ok lol. Sorry but ur not that important. Anyways can WE delete 100s of EMails 1 click

    Would be very optional yes and helpful but if we could delete hundreds if not thousands of emails within one click. I've had Hotmail since high school I'm now 38 and it has changed not for the bad but for the good to be identity safe for the users which I understand and appreciate. With all the other Advanced competitors I understand we need more positive helpful comments so that Hotmail can be one of the best most user friendly the cure for our children in grade school or High School and sometimes as we keep our email address throughout…

  17. Delete Contact like Spam: 1 button!!

    Spam/junk comes in, we select it or click on it & a few icons appear. Why must an electronic address book however be so much more complicated?!? 1 Button & contact/junk/trash is no longer available to sight!!

  18. searching for unread emails

    searching for unread emails, you can do this with the desktop application, but not web application.

    read:no
    Items that have not been read. You can also use read:false to get the same results.

  19. 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.

  20. Allow sharing birthday calendars

    It would be great if you could allow people to share birthday calendars. I wasn't able to sync mi birthday calendar with my Gmail account, so I had to create a new one that is exactly the same 🙄
