    • Make it so people can't see your name

      Make the account so you don't send people your name. I apply for jobs on craigslist and get spam and scams and they see my name if I email back.

        • Account Safety

          There are several users in my account that are unauthorized deleting important emails along with sending emails to spam specifically my employment applications and creating accounts in several other applications with my email address. This is specifically concerning for the safety of my family and children as the names Caitlin and Jeremy continues to appear and for many reasons I would like this addressed immediately for the safety of my family and children.

            • Contact blocking

              How do I block senders? Its really dumb that there is not an easily accessible way to flag spam mail from all your platforms.

                • ATP/Safelink is a horrible idea and should never be enabled by default

                  ATP/Safelink is a horrible idea, makes my emails less secure. Should be opt-in, not forced enabled. And disabling it should be easier than having to contact support. ATP was turned on in my account, with no warning, last week, and I had to spend time understanding the issue, looking for a solution online until I figured out that I had to manually contact support

                  I have good security practices, and I have edge scanners/DNS filters. Safelink/ATP disables de facto my functionality, replacing it with an obscure redirection I cannot control

                  In particular this crosses a line, because it permanently changes…

                  • Stop invading our privacy

                    All that account safety is just one big excuse for Microsoft to pry into our business! I would rather have my email hacked into than be forced to give you my phone number! We should be given the choice if we want that extra security or not, and if you choose not to that's our own risk. We are not infant and we don't need you controlling our decisions and our privacy

                              • safelink

                                Please make safelinks a configurable option. When it works it is a very nice feature, however when it breaks and users can not disable it, it breaks every link in every email as evidenced by not only my own experience, but the experiences of countless others as documented in the forums.

                                The configuration should be available at the parent account for any children accounts that exist. Adult accounts could decide for themselves.

                                Options -> Security -> Enable/Disable safelinks redirects

You people need to get on top of this **** because we’ve had enough. It doesn’t seem to matter how many times I change my password it keeps happening!! ******* fix it outlook I’ll be switching somewhere else

                                        • Whitelist for countries

                                          Simply by having the option on how to block incoming login attempts from countries of your choice, or exclude your own country from a ban-list.

                                          Let's call it a whitelist, where you get to chose the countries which will be whitelisted. (Allowing those countries listed to be able to log into your accounts. Any other countries will be blocked off, or shut the account down untill the owner releases it)

                                          This will immediately decrease the login attempts from say China.

                                          I'm sorry for the bad English grammar. Not a native speaker. I hope you can make sense of what in…
