        I have very old contacts, some dating back to 2010. ALL email adresses are void. This is taking up space and memory.

        I never really used my outlook contacts. Just a lot of spam and b.s. I would like to delete them all

        When contacts change their e-mail addresses, the original addresses cannot be deleted and will continue to be inserted in my To: line. It gets pretty confusing if we are supposed to change their real names and open a new contact in order to accommodate new e-mail addresses.

        Contacts are duplicated and reduplicate after merging. WhatsApp would appear to cause further duplication of contacts. These errors are not replicated when viewing 'people' online

        "recent" email sent information comes up with the incorrect label. work email addresses come up as personal. it makes no sense.

        Synching and creating contacts is good, but please add feature even to modify them or to update/edit them.

        allow for saving e mail IDs , with name of person to whom the mail is sent. will help recall id by name of contact.

        remove email addresses from my email contact list that have been deleted. ex., an old personal email address I no longer used, have deleted.

        right now, contacts in address book of Office365 business/personal accounts cannot be accessed via Outlook from my phone/tablet.
        The ability to perform CRUD operations on Contacts and have that sync between the online account and device(s) would be awesome!
        A simple "Sync Contacts to Outlook" setting perhaps would be the best way to implement this as not everyone might want this feature.
