  1. Show the emails you enumerate

    How about showing in my inbox and sent mails instead of a blank area as if I have no mail or didn’t send messages on my iPhone?! Also, you specify the number of messages in spam and deleted mail, but when I click on those they show no mails from spammers or emails I recently sent. No wonder gmail is more popular

  3. Stop blocking automated messages

    I never receive automated password reset emails (not in junk folder), which means I have to then email in to ask for it - i mean websites where I’ve forgotten login details, and have to reset. Please sort it out!

  5. 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!!

  6. ability to free text phone # & address labels

    Both Outlook contacts as well as the Microsoft People app need to have the ability to free text phone number and address fields (labels) instead of the standard ones such as home, work, mobile... Some people have more than one office location and phone and putting work as the field doesn't distinguish one from the other. It would be better to say Northwest office (phone or address) or Downtown office (phone or address). Google contacts, Apple contacts and Contacts+ have this ability.

  7. ! Please update your credentials (Gmail account shouldn't have anything to do with Microsoft)

    Hi, I keep receiving emails from Outlook saying to update my credentials for another email address I use, however it's a gmail account and has nothing to do with Hotmail or Outlook.

    How can I stop receiving these annoying emails that have nothing to do with Microsoft?

  8. 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.

  10. 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.

  11. 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!

  17. 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…

  20. 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!
