  2. Make it easy to move from Outlook on the desktop (PC) to Outlook in the cloud

    I am trying to migrate to the cloud (Outlook.com I guess). I can't do it easily. I have a pile of contacts organised in folders but I can't export them all as one CSV file. (One CSV per folder) And neither can I import to People from a PST file.

    Emails (and possible other stuff) is now kept in .ost files on a PC. As I use Outlook on my PC (far more feature rich) it seems all my emails are replicated in the .OST file. But I don't need that. Probably only need the last 2 years worth. Not…

  7. The Send button appears in the same place as the reply button

    The Send button appears in the same place as the reply button and so it is very easy to send a blank message with a double click on the reply button.

  8. When the folder pane is minimised the folder icons dissapear

    When the folder pane is minimised the folder icons dissapear

    This seems to be a bug as it makes the icons redundant, and in the desktop outlook the inbox icon is still accessible when the folder pane is minimised.

  10. EXTERMINATED

    I tried to login to my account cs_rousselot@hotmail.com, and it tells me that it does not exist anymore.

    I want to enter that account, I have very important information in that email. I want them to return it to me as soon as possible, I want it again.

    They can not do this without warning. They can not do it. If they continue with that attitude they will disappear, and thousands of users choose gmail over Hotmail. Do not keep doing that.

    Give me back my Account cs_rousselot@hotmail.com.

  11. Let me delete default folders

    I would like to have the option to delete (or hide) via menus the various default folders. These include "Conversation History", "Archive", "RSS Subscriptions", etc. I will never use them, but I do use many other folders, and I'd like to keep my list pared down to just the folders I use rather than the ones Microsoft wants to force me to look at.

  15. Recovering deleted mail should require a password

    Although my mail is password protected someone could, if they got in, access my deleted mail. This is a privacy issue and I believe a password should be required to recover deleted mail.

  16. 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!

  19. Do not use MSN as main email.

    After 1/4 century using MSN as primary email, MSN locked up when I needed it. Now, after a month MSN is working. Too late, because I had too transfer all necessary mail to GMAIL. The major player is down for a month? So disappointed.
