  1. Keep quoted messages hidden by default!

    Enlarging the message composition window should NOT cause the conversation history to be displayed. Or at a minimum it should be possible to HIDE the quoted messages to which I am now responding.

  2. >2 attachments on emails easy to miss

    Could the email interface be altered to make it clearer when there's more than two attachments on a received email? Sometimes it's easy to overlook that someone has sent more than two attachments because the additional attachments are hidden.

  5. PREVIEW button

    Please add a PREVIEW button, so that we can see what an email we create will LOOK LIKE to the reader BEFORE sending. Sometimes, a link ENLARGES on the page after sending. Sometimes, we just want to the link to show and NOT a giant preview. THANKS.

  10. Unreadable Mail

    I can´t read the screen with it broken up into four columns. I open an inbox message and the information is so small it is unreadable. How to get a separate screen for messages?

  15. Editing the To line

    First off, I find the entire Feedback giving experience incredibly dismissive. I'm not even able to share snips or screenshots.

    I want to be able to edit to 'To' line recipient when copying an address from another source. It pastes with 'mailto:' before the actual domain, and I'm unable to edit without deleting the entire recipient.

    I'm struck at how different Outlook.com functions to Outlook on 365. Please trade notes internally.

  16. Collapse email by sender

    Collapse mail by sender - for review and cleanup of mail. Allow collapse (like in PC version) so can quickly delete a large group of email

  19. This issue is making me upset

    When switching from Unread to Read, I want that state to stay static, not changed, when I switch between tabs (Focused, Promotions, Social, Newsletters, Other) Right now, I am always toggling that to "Unread"

  20. Better User experience

    There has to be a way to cancel search.
    There also has to be an easier way to go back to the Inbox after i open an email. Generally, Back button is on the left top side. In Outlook's case it is on the right top, which is not very intuitive. See Gmail for an example.
