  2. Category Sorting

    PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE Give users the ability to sort by category. Otherwise there is literally NO POINT in categorizing emails.

    Gmail is significantly further advanced with this ability, as moving emails to a separate folder is detrimental to my inbox flow.

  5. Expanding search results to show all the members of a distribution group

    It would be great if search results can show all the members of a distribution group by expanding it when searching the group in directory from contacts in Outlook on the web, because currently it can only show members up to 25.

  6. "search rules"

    Please make mailbox rules searchable.

    Especially for people with dozens of rules, it is really hard to find if there is an existing rule so we badly need blazing-fast search functionality for the rules.

  7. Show folders in search results

    Microsoft(R) Outlook(R) / 365(R) nettisähköpostissa on "hae kaikista kansioista" -toiminto.
    Pienenä puuttee no nse että se ei näytä hakutuloksissa mistä kansioista osumat löytyivät, koska tämän tien käyttämien on ositus siitä että viestinen lajittelu on enemmän tai vähemmän epäonnistunut ja kansioita kannattaa järjestellä udellen...

  9. User friendly

    Hi
    I would like to request you to improve your "search function a little bit more user friendly. As of now it is quite complicated and time consuming. Basically we as users are looking for options/systems that could save our time at work or home. Outlook search function is not user friendly. Please give the option on drop down list for such as, From, To, Subject, any words and etc. to make it user friendly and off course to save more time.

    Thanks
    Charitha Karunanayake

  11. Allow Search to default to Inbox only

    When searching, I would like an option to default to the inbox rather than the all folders option.

  13. Need an "All Folders Except Deleted Items" search option

    There should be an option to search All Folders except Deleted Items.

    When I search All Folders (which I do since I want to search both sent and received emails at once), all this junk pops up that I have no idea whether I've deleted, so I go through and delete it again just to be sure. Give me an All Folders search that excludes deleted emails.

  14. Delete the history on Search contacts, directory, and groups in the search bar for Ootw

    Implement a feature that can delete the history on Search contacts, directory, and groups in the search bar.
    It will be more convenient if you allow us to have the feature.

  15. Better and easy search function

    Improve search. I need search criteria: time (date + klo), name, key word, email address. Time criteria especially. And i don't want to see best results, they are never best, they confuse and it take sometime to find where the search results start.

  16. Search ALL includes searching the Junk Folder

    Search All currently does not include the Junk folder and many times I begin a search to see if something is in Junk. Outlook for the web needs to return ALL results for a search and WHAT FOLDER each email is filed under. If it is in Junk, users need to know that.

  18. Remove "top results" when searching or give option

    Please remove "top results" when searching, it is really annoying. At least give us the option to turn it on or off.
    thank you

  19. difficult to organize and find emails

    Make this more intuitive to use - do not like it - spending way too much time looking for and trying to organize things. Creating a folder is even difficult and not intuitive.

  20. Remove recent searches dropdown

    Please remove the drop-down 'recent searches' box on Outlook webmail. It obscures the search mail box itself, and makes the process of searching needlessly laborious.
