  2. Immediate alert of email stuck in outbox

    As the title suggests--instead of saving up all those easter eggs for someone to realize when they close outlook, why not prompt them AS IMMEDIATELY AS POSSIBLE that their email is stuck in the outbox?
    Email is ALWAYS intended to be instant, correct? So why on earth is the rationale to not bother to alert the user until they end their work day? This is so opposite of rational it hurts me.

    We had a user with over 10 emails stuck in outbox, WHILE the client even said connected and up to date. It gets better though--When he directed outlook…

  4. [Suggestion]:Permanently getting rid of spammers unwanted emails.

    In degrading the reputation of spammers unwanted emails. How about letting each user decide who they want permanently blocked instead of taking a survey? That would put spammers out of business quickly and not spend months and years getting rid of unwanted emails.

  5. View the auto-complete suggestions in the To field by specifying the certain condition

    It would be great if the auto-complete suggestions in the To field could be more focused by specifying the certain condition.

  6. Extra page to sign in to e-mail is annoying and inconvenient

    Why do I have to be taken to a new pop-up webpage when I want to sign in to my e-mail? Please change it back to having the login screen come up as soon as you go to the website. Much more convenient that way.

  9. Create a recurrent event on the multiple random dates at once in the Outlook Calendar

    I would like to create a recurrent event to select multiple random dates at once. Because we don’t want the event to recur in regular cycle.

  12. Date format is ignored when displaying birthdays

    I chose in the outlook.com settings to show dates as 01/09/2021 for Sept 1st (European DD/MM/YYYY format). However, this setting does not appear to be applied when displaying the birthday of a contact - I see 8/1/1950 for someone who has their birthday on August 1st. When I edit the birthday, it shows correctly as August 1, but when in the normal view, it swaps the birthday to the US format MM/DD/YYYY
