  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.

  3. 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.

  4. 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...

  7. 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

  8. 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.

  11. Feedback button

    Add a feedback button in the options\settings bar. So if people need help they could type the question instead of going through multiple clicks to get to this page

  14. mailbox delegation permissions

    Currently to allow a user access to a shared (or other user) mailbox, you have to enter the permission up to 3 times (full, send as, send on behalf). Each time you have to search/select the same user. This becomes cunbersome when several users need multiple permissions (like full + send as). How about selecting the user just once and check box which permissions to give.

  15. 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.

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

  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. Better Searching

    Is it possible to improve your search mode in outlook? There are some addresses that are different than the persons name, I have tried to edit the display name, but it never stays or saves. So when I type the email, I have to remember the email not the persons name. Please let me know why it's like this. I have talked with others who use your program and they also are frustrated with search and not being able to look up an email based on a person's name.
