  3. Showing seconds in sent mails

    Showing the seconds in the timestamp in ALSO the sent mails, which is VERY important in numerous occasions, could be quite handy, wouldn't you think? I have NO idea why on EARTH this simple yet effective thing isn't possible on Outlook mails!

  5. Would like option to see Recipient email address / name

    I sent one email, which I sent separately to individual email addresses.

    Once they were sent, I put them in one folder. When I open that folder, it is impossible for me to see, which email went to which person because only my email address appears (as the sender). I looked in the "Sort" option, and "Recipient" is not offered. I would like to see either "Recipient" offered as a sort option or the ability to list both Sender/Receiver email addresses.

  6. Please make the text format popup when composing email in Outlook Online OPTIONAL

    In Outlook Online (outlook.live.com/mail), when I'm typing an email in HTML format (rather than plain mode), an annoying popup appears over my text every time I highlight a piece of text. The popup obscures my text (sometimes even the literal text I'm writing, depending on my window size and where the popup simply chooses to appear) and is NOT helpful at all. I have checked Settings several times and cannot find out how to disable it.

    I guess it is intended to "help" me access the font size button, bold button, and italic button, etc., faster... but those buttons are…

  9. 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.

  10. 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.

  12. Configuration for "Invitations > Control how invitations, responses, and notifications are handled", on outlook.com not shown on desktop

    This issue is regarding Configuration options for outlook.com"Invitations > Control how invitations, responses, and notifications are handled, not visible on any desktop computer browsers. Only visible on iPad browser.
    While the look of the account on outlook.com can be different across browsers and platforms. But I am unable to understand how and why some options are available only on a particular browser. No other browser on any platform shows this option (unless you change the user agent on that browser to state Apple Safari (iPad)).
    This difference implies discrimination between different types of users based on their platform, which is…

  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.

  16. 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. Contact linking in Outlook - we need a way to disable globally.

    The automatic linking of contacts in Outlook is horrible and wastes a lot of time.

  18. A way to aggregate multiple calendars for sharing

    SUGGESTION FOR: Outlook Web App / Calendar

    CONTEXT: I work at two cross-affiliated institutions that use totally different systems (Microsoft and Google) for emails, calendars, etc, and it's a huge hassle to manage both. I wish to sync everything up and setup one main Outlook calendar that I can share with everyone for planning meetings/events. However, it looks like calendars can currently only be shared separately.

    SUGGESTION: Add a way to allow aggregating multiple calendars into one for the purpose of sharing/publishing. Bonus points if this feature can also be used with calendars sync'd from other services such as Google…

  19. Unified Inbox in Outlook (Microsoft 365)

    Havinf recently upgraded my motherboard and reinstalled Windows 10 I have lost the Outlook thick client in which I had a unified inbox for my three hotmail accounts. In Microsoft 365 there seems to be now way of adding my additional two accounts so I have to keep signing out to sign in to my other email address. Why is this functionality apparently not available in the browser version of Outlook?
