  2. Attachments are not deleted even though emails have been deleted

    Please put a delete button in the files section. When emails are deleted sometimes the attachments are still showing in the files section. It gets very confusing to find the attachments you want.

  3. Stop moving emails to junk after they landed in inbox already

    I sometimes receive an email in my mailbox which later gets moved into junk automatically. This must stop since it sometimes affects legitimate emails too. Once it was in the inbox, leave it there. I cant afford to lose track of an email because you removed it to the junk box in the meantime

  4. 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. Searching for a specific email in the search bar takes far too long to load

    I was looking for a certain email in my inbox. I decided to use the search bar hoping to find the email quickly. I typed the contacts name in the search bar, and It continued to load for over 5 minutes. Eventually I gave up. It was far too time consuming. Oddly enough, I used the same search bar frequently in the past to find emails, but did not have this issue.
    I now have to manually search through 1,000s of emails to find what I am looking for, which is frustrating and a waste of time.

  7. Be able to send bulk emails in Outlook Mail

    Currently, we are not able to send bulk emails and was informed that Microsoft Outlook has the ability to send only 30 emails per minute. The emails we send are Press Releases that require an attachment to be sent with the email.

    It would be useful for Outlook to be able to do this or have an add on product that supports this function.

  8. regarding Outlook Web App OS: WIN 10 Browser: Firefox. In message composing pressing backspace or twice backspace after mistyping a word

    regarding Outlook Web App

    OS: WIN 10

    Browser: Firefox.

    In message composing pressing backspace or twice backspace after mistyping a word will jump the active curser away and I can not continue writing in the message text without using the mouse to click into the message body again.
    It's super anoying. Please fix it.

    Greetings

  11. 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.

  12. The new outlook.com on mobile browser does not let you send from your alias address yet the older version does. The new version is lacking

    The new version of outlook.com from mobile browser even on Edge does not allow you send from alias address this needs to be corrected so I can use the alias address.

  13. ! 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?

  15. 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.

  16. 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.

  17. 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!

  19. Alternative to Godaddy for personal domain

    When will we be able to use another registrar other than GoDaddy? or better yet simply being able to setup our own domain name manually? (For those who can manage their DNS/MX records)

    Thanks!
