  1. [Dislike]:Please stop "keep signed in " tick box.

    Please stop the "keep signed in tick box" you already asks to stay signed in, so once is enough. No need for me to tick another box.

  5. blocking and reporting phishing in one step

    It seems you can either block spam or report it as phishing, but not block and report all at the same time. It would be more effective if you could do both at once.

  6. How can I stop Outlook from typing guesses at my words when I am writing an email?

    I want to be free to compose my own email without having some 'thing' guess at what I am going to write. It is very distracting having this 'thing' type where I am typing.

    Please, please stop it!

  7. Automatically block sender and ip when message is marked Phishing

    Microsoft's software engineers are smart enough to make this simple line of code happen - Automatically block sender and ip when message is marked Phishing, so that users' junk boxes don't get unmanageable by the quantity of junk that gets through. The time it takes to look up the sender data, copy the ip and paste it into the blocked sender panel just gets too long when you are dealing with 20+ junk messages at a time.

  11. [Suggestion]:Junk Emails Not Being Deleted after 10 Days

    It says at the top "Items in Junk Email will be deleted after 10 days" and that worked until September 14, 2020. Since that date, no Junk emails have been deleted like they normally are and Junk folder is building up. I can delete manually but prefer the automatic deletion after 10 days to work again.

  14. Slow web interface

    Outlook.com works well as a mail server for MS Office Outlook. However, as a web based application, it is very slow and cumbersome. I would prefer a more streamlined and snappy interface.

  16. Block spammails alltogether, don't put them in a spambox, and do NOT filter on reputations, but block spam domains and anonymus senders.

    I want ypu to STOP filtering spam mails on their reputation but block them as soon as we report them. Also STOP whitelisting Google ad their mail- and cloud servers are full of spammers, abusing Gmail, Google Forms and Google Cloud web apps to send their spam mails Also block anonymous senders or reject their mails, as spammers mostly use anonymus, spoofed e-mailaddresses. Give us beck the old, better Hotmail spam filter!!!!

  18. Junk e-mail: block e-mail addresses using wildcards (eg *@*.can

    Junk e-mail: why can't you allow the user to block e-mails using a wildcard and only part of the e-mail address? I receive, EVERY DAY, emails from pharmacy<something>.can and I want to block @.can instead of wasting my time to block every single instance, every single day

  19. [Suggestion]:Verifying Account

    Verifying an outlook account is impossible with the the mouse and cheese thing. Why are MS using the alternative email address I entered in the first instance. I am unable to use the phone option as out of signal range.

  20. Search bar

    I want the search text boxes back to what they were in Outlook. I just learned today that a general search is on top of the Outlook client only. It was more convenient to have a search box in a folder created in your inbox and in the focused section as well. I work for the Judiciary and this change is not as time efficient as it was before. Plus the general search is saving my searches and there's no convenient option to clear out what I searched previously which looks junky.
