  1. Send blocked emails straight to deleted items instead of to junk mail folder

    Send blocked emails straight to deleted items instead of to junk mail folder. There are 2 options, to mark as junk or to block, yet both put the emails from that domain or sender into the junk folder. It makes no sense to have 2 different options that do the same. If something is blocked, it shouldn't ever appear in junk mail or the inbox.

  2. [Suggestion]:Switching Accounts

    It would be nice to have a feature to quickly change between Outlook accounts (I have three; two personal and one for work).

  4. Agenda pane options

    Please allow me to switch "Agenda Pane" on or off in "Settings." I know a lot of people like it but I don't use it and it makes my calendar too narrow. It is especially annoying when it opens just to tell me I don't have anything going on that day. I am smart enough to read my calendar and figure that out.

  5. Edit or delete auto suggestions when using outlook

    Should be able to edit or delete auto suggestions when using outlook on iPadOS. Most of the suggestions are rubbish anyway.

  9. I can receive email but unable to send or reply email since this morning

    I did not receive email when I sent or replied my outlook email to my another email account this morning. However I am able to receive emails. Why my sent email is not going through?

  10. OneNote feed in the top menu is a great idea.

    I like how there is a OneNote feed next to the "My day" Calendar and tasks integration. This makes it very quick and easy to open notes, instead of having to scroll down past folders previously.

  12. Why does Outlook not block all emails not on the safe sender's list

    On my blocking junk emails. Why does the blocked senders and domains file only save what the dropdown on the tool bar blocks? I feel if I go to the trouble to manually block junk emails into the blocked senders and domains list, those I put into it should remain blocked forever and not be released to inundate my email account over and over. I feel I am being jeopardized with my safety and privacy by Outlook allowing junk emails into my account. WHY DOESN'T OUTLOOK WORK TO BLOCK ALL EMAILS THAT ARE NOT ON A USERS SAFE SENDER LIST?

  13. [Dislike]:Junk emails

    Outlook is automatically categorizing emails as Junk and putting it in the Junk folder. And then they provide a safe senders list to remove from Junk.

    I don't want Outlook to automatically decide on it's own will whether to put an email in Junk folder or Inbox folder. If I feel it's junk, I will add it in a Junk emails list. Or create a rule to move the email to Junk.

    What gives Outlook the right to decide on it's own will whether something is junk? At least there should be an option to turn off this feature. I…

  14. 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.

  15. 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…

  19. when forwarding attachments next to message

    I have recently returned to using Outlook, when forwarding attachments it would be preferable if they appear next to message in "title bar"

  20. junk folder delete timescale

    Please provide an option for junk email to NOT be deleted automatically after 10 days. 30 days would be better, but allowing us to choose would be even better
