  2. Recover deleted outlook.com aliases

    Users should have a period of time - a week would be enough for many people - to undelete aliases that were deleted from accounts (often by kids on xbox.) When an account is closed, users have 60 days to change their mind - they should have a similar option when aliases are deleted.

    For an example of the problem this will solve, see this thread, https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/outlook_com/forum/all/my-hotmail-account-was-deleted-while-my-son-was/2250b864-3712-4813-b736-e896e8146c25

  4. Outlook/Hotmail adding "folders" on its own to email?

    Where did this "Files" come from between my "Favorites" and my "Folders"? I don't need or want Word or Excel templates.

  7. Terminology confusing on Move to and Copy to <folder name>

    "Move to" then changes to "copy to" and it is confusing as to the operation being performed. When you choose to "Move to" for an email, the pull down box then changes to "Copy to" <folder name> and it is confusing terminology. Is the email being moved to the new folder completely? Or is a copy being moved and the original left to clutter up the inbox as well? Since I don't see the email still in the inbox, it does appear to be acting as a Move but it is confusing terminology since Move means "move to new location…

  8. [Dislike]:Too many steps/clicks to sign in.

    Too many steps/clicks to sign in. It now takes even more steps to sign into Outlook Live.

    First page: Splash screen with woman / need to click Sign In

    Second page: Enter e-mail

    Third page: Enter password

    Fourth page: Say whether or not I want to stay signed in

    WHY?

    Put everything on the first page. Stop making using the product so painful.

  11. Separate Log Out Button

    Give "Log Out" option its own button. NOT in a drop down menu, where half the time it does not appear unless the page is refreshed. Just give it its own button to click on.

  12. dark mode issues

    The overall issue is darkmode is very hard to work with as a developer, until recently we could override certain things that were breaking but the recent update adds !important to the inlined styles so we can no longer fix the bugs it causes.

    A few of the bugs that we’re facing include...
    Light colours are adjusted but dark are not, leading to a lack of visual structure where contrast is being used.
    When dark text is applied to a light background image the text is made light but the background stays the same making it very hard to read …

  13. [Dislike]:KEEP PHONE CALL VERIFICATION OPTION FOR MICROSOFT ACCOUNTS

    I regard to: "Say goodbye to phone call verification, hello to new options" ("Update your Microsoft account verification options to sign in smoothly"):

    PLEASE DO NOT GET RID OF PHONE-CALL VERIFICATION!! I am UNCOMFORTABLE in having to settle for the other options that you offer!

  15. Too much obvious spam in junk folder

    Too much obvious spam in junk folder, making it difficult to spot genuine emails. This has only started happening again recently. Revise incoming spam filters, something has gone horribly wrong.

  16. suggestions of contacts in search

    The suggestions of contacts in search appear emails from contacts that we do not have, they should not appear, they should be able to be deleted. Suggested emails in search are always the same and do not allow to be deleted, hopefully they will change that.

  17. Allow the creation of a rule that can block by sender name

    Currently there has been a massive surge in spam from phishing emails pretending to come from Netflix. Everything in the emails is different from each other aside from the core intent which is to scam someone, but the username that shows is always the same: Ņ​etflix

    Notice the special character under the "N" letter.
    At the moment there is no way to create a rule to block emails by contact name, please add it since they are clearly exploiting this now in full force and there is no common element (other than the sender's name) which we can use in…

  18. Problem with Outlook Premium - GoDaddy - certain domains

    Hi, I have a paid Outlook.com Premium (Ad-free Outlook.com) subscription since years, linked with my domain, so I can have personalized e-mail. Recently Microsoft has moved this option to Microsoft 365 Family, which I also have a subscription for. However, I can only set it up if my domain is managed by GoDaddy. But I can't transfer my .nz domain to GoDaddy, since they don't hold a license for .nz domains. Please Microsoft talk to GoDaddy, work with my current registrar, onlydomains.com, of give me a solution otherwise.

  20. Junk Filters

    Your junk filters are so incredibly bad that I have to now send everything to junk and filter out from there. Wonder how and when outlook turned out to be so disappointing that now I have to look at using other email providers !
