  1. Distinguish suggested contacts

    It would be helpful if there was a way to distinguish suggested contacts from contacts in your address book when sending an email.

  3. Option to hide sent-to email address

    Add option to hide sent-to email address in message list when not the host account. Currently shows as distracting red highlight with no option to turn off.

  4. Nachrichtenmenü

    Hello,
    I see messages that I have already opened and possibly answered. That causes confusion. Please change that.

  5. Error when arranging in folders

    The e-mails in my inbox were separated into all my different folders all of a sudden, and so I had to go through all of my folders to see them and arrange them correctly

  8. Mistaken Neg Outlook.com Support feedback

    Mistakenly provided Very Negative Support feedback - which should have been directed to [non]-Support at M$ [Un]-Help App-linked Chat, which, in fact was WORTHLESS & AGGRAVATING
    .... My apologies to Outlook Support who at least provided some real suggestions!

  9. link formatting can't be stopped

    Can't type something after a url link without extending the link, or the link formatting, anyway.

  10. Missing visble New button in Contacts

    Within the Contact-section of Outlook.com ther is no visible button for adding or creating a brand new contact. I learned from the help files that there should be one just below the "Outlook logo". And indeed when I move my mouse pointer there a dark grey button with no tekst or symbol inside apears. Pushing that button opens a creation screen. It would be much nicer if it would be visible in the first place just like the edit button etc.

  12. Notifications for FOCUSED email only

    I would love to get notifications ONLY when FOCUSED email arrives in my inbox. This is especially important with the phone app. I don't want to see a notification for every silly email that arrives, but getting notified when a FOCUSED email arrives is great!

  13. Place 'To' field at top, and 'From' below

    Can you switch the From and To fields? Presenting the From at the top of the window is confusing (opposite to most other email clients) and I know who's sending it...I'd rather see who I am sending it to.

  14. Mail 'Right-Click'

    Why do I have to 'right-click' twice in order to get the 'right-click' options to be displayed?

  15. Add repeat replies to the same thread!!

    Add repeat replies to the same thread!! why are you listing each email separately. If i am emailing a contact regarding the same topic 5 times, why not just show one thread (with the number 5 next to it, to represent the number of emails in the thread). Why are you listing each individual email separately????? It is madness. Thanks for taking the time to review this feedback. Surely you can outdo your competition.

  18. Deleting folders from favorites needs to be changed

    It's far too easy to delete folders from the 'favorites' section. I accidentally do this several times daily--when I switch between folders, much of the time I accidentally click on/near the number of new messages at the right side, which instantly turns into the star and deletes the folder from my favorites.

  20. Center text to fit page width or else offer horizontal scroll for settings menu.

    Long sentences in the settings pane are cut off on the right hand side and there is no horizontal scroll to read the rest of it.
