  2. ****** connection with often password resets

    Stop getting our account disconnected with security rules. Need to change my password every now and then, don't receive my mails as should be. I stopped using my Xbox because of that, am starting to hate Microsoft products just because of that. Stop with the security all the time ! Google don't have those nonsense problems.

  3. the outlook layout sucks

    There is literally no room to view a full message - can't read it. There is no room to easily read a message while composing. It is a pain in the ars.

  4. Please scroll to top if we have reading view on and change to a different email.

    Please scroll to top if we have reading view on and change to a different email. With that tiny scroll bar, we have to click inside the message and click home, each time we change the message to a different one. It is so much annoying.

  5. “(i) You replied on …”

    The system already adds “(i) You replied on Fri 2019-10-18 7:45 PM” as a header to messages replied to; and that is a wonderful addition.

    I would find it helpful to have that “You replied on…” system message hyperlinked to the indicated reply message in whatever folder it's in.

    This would prove helpful when one accidentally misfiles a reply message, or when moving original and reply messages from the “Inbox” and “Sent” folders to the same, or different, folders (Allowing: Move original message from Inbox, Click "You replied on…", Drag message from “Sent” folder to same destination folder).

    Ideally, the…

  7. The DATE filter to search emails is not user friendly

    When using the DATE filter to search emails, the only way to select a date is by scrolling through the calendar. When one needs an email from many years back, it takes ages before you finally arrive scrolling through the calendar month by month. Please make it possible to immediately enter the year by hand!

  8. Please set Sender name header apart somehow

    When I sort emails by sender, am driven crazy by the fact the sender's name is not differentiated from their list of emails that follow.... Please could you set "Sender" name header apart from the mails they have sent, either with underline, or color, or bold or text size -- anything! Thank you.

  13. Get rid of Inbox line

    Please consider getting rid of the horizontal Inbox line above where emails are (the line with the word "Inbox" and "Filter". It just takes up vertical space and is redundant. Inbox is already on the left hand side window.

  15. Groups Feature UX improvement

    The new Groups feature is great. It was just super hard to find out how to add new members to a group. There should be a menu entry for manage group members.

  17. URLs in plaintext emails are unreadable

    Outlook makes a short URL in plaintext emails visually looong so that it can hurt my eyes. It's especially bad because business related mails are typically in plaintext (no styling).

  18. Terrible menu

    The garbage menu system on the right is trash. I don't want a "Folders" menu with my **** underneath and I have no use for a "groups" menu item either. Let me remove that useless feature.

  20. Dark mode: The number showing how many NEW messages received is not contrasty enough.

    Dark theme mode: The number in a circle (grey) indicating the number of NEW messages received, is too pale to see . Currently is is white on light grey.

    It should BLACK on the grey/white circle.
