  1. Give your customers an easy way to disable Advanced Safety Feature Safelinks

    Safelinks have rendered Outlook 2016 and Windows 10 Mail App useless. Now when I click on a link, Edge opens a new blank tab, and then stops. It's impossible to decipher what the 'safe' link is pointing to, and it's not possible to copy and past them either. I understand that I need to contact Technical Support, who then forward the request to another team that can take up to two days to implement.

    • What's the point of that diamond icon?

      I have an Office 365 subscription. What's the point with that diamond icon beside Skype? I click on it and it takes me to a page that welcomes me to the premium plan... For me is just one more stupid thing added to pollute the screen.

      C'mon Microsoft! Are you really reading these UserVoice posts?

      People don't want tabs, they want to read an email in a new window.
      People don't want the Archive, Scheduled and Conversation folders.
      People want an option to turn off Skype on Outlook.com.
      Where are the options to manage spam on the beta? I have…

      • No ads for non-premium users

        Please remove ads for non-premium users. I don't think it is necessary to show ads in email. Or make it not too much agressive. For example Google show ads as new email with tag "advertisement" and this is ok, for me, so I decided to read ads or just ignore it.

        • Let me remove myself from Outlook Premium

          My brother tried Outlook.com premium and added me by giving a dedicated email address attached to my existing Outlook.com account.
          We then decided this solution was not suitable for us so he called Microsoft and cancelled the subscription 48 hours later. He closed his Microsoft account.
          Now I still have this email address attached to my Outlook.com account and I cannot remove it...

          I should add that I subscribed to Office 365 personnel so I really do not need to continue with Outlook Premium

          • SafeLinks S*cks

            SafeLinks s*cks, turn it off. I'm paying for a "security feature" that prevents me from sending emails. I can't just forward my flight itinerary anymore to my wife. I need to print the email to PDF and attach it to the email. Really? It's 2018. And some emails I receive are incoherent nonsense. Nice "feature", "thanks".

              • Add public folders and the subfolders.

                We were trying to add public folders and his subfolder, but this is impossible in owa. It will be a nice solution to have the same folders organization than the local outlook

                    • Imposing Focused Outlook

                      Suddenly I get Focused Outlook pushed on my computer. I did not ask for this and I do not need this. Very rude to push your new technologies in my face this way without asking. Tell me how to get rid of this.

                            I have shared my O365 Home sub with other members of the family, they get all the benefits, but they still see ads in their inbox. None of the users should see ads if they have the O365 benefits.

                              • A Bug with Outlook

                                This bug only happens with Outlook, never encountered it with other Microsoft products like Word, PowerPoint, Excel, etc. But this bug has constantly been with Outlook. Out of the blue when you start up Outlook, after a few minutes, you will encounter the following once during the entire session with Outlook "Internet Explorer has stopped working. A problem caused the program to stop working correctly. Windows will close the program and notify you if a solution is available." After a few seconds, without pressing any key, Outlook will reboot itself and the message is gone. You can then continued on…

                                • LEAVE MY OUTLOOK ALONE; just making the security change screwed up my inbox and moved it all to deleted, that is how I knew you were doing

                                  Your behind the scene changes already screwed up my inbox. I can tell when you are doing changes as you always ruin outlook when you 'think' you are doing it behind the scenes, you are not. This latest 'change' you made without asking moved all my inbox mail to my deleted mail, both read and unready. I am tired of asking you to stop changing my outlook. LEAVE ME ALONE
