        deleting old contacts (phone,WhatsApp, Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn...) is almost impossible. An option to be able to delete them also on the cache of the server, would solve many issues for end users & support teams!!! Agent of Outlook.com support team

        i want to have my outlook app contact populate in contacts of my phone. But currently since outlook dont allow deleting contact from people tab (though it allows add and modify).. i see no point of using it in my phone as its dosnt solve the purpose.

        currently i sync my contacts seperatly on active sync account as a workaround.

        Please simplify working with contacts and groups. Not user-friendly at all. Should be easier to add contacts to groups, edit etc. Thank you !

        I see no way to click on an email and "add the recipient to my contacts", nor can I pull in my contacts from my desktop/online Outlook or import from Gmail. I can't even find a + to add a contact from scratch.

        my contacts email address is not automatically created when I write theirs address the first time

        I have numerous people/companies in my contacts list that I do not want and would love to be able to permanently remove.

        The Outlook app doesn't have the option of deleting contacts. I get by this temporarily by changing the name of the contact to "delete me" but it would be good not to rely on a PC for account maintenance.
