  1. [Dislike]:RULES

    Rules - WHY can't we create more than ONE rule per day? This is truly getting very annoying.
    thanks!

  2. [Dislike]:Fix bug in Focused Inbox algorithm

    I have no rules and no sweeps but still some messages are being delivered directly to the Other Inbox. CLEARLY a bug since with no rules or sweeps they should all be delivered to the Focused Inbox first. Please fix.

  3. [Dislike]:Bottom slide button doesn't appear

    Bottom slide line does not appear if I am at the top of the e-mail. It is appearing when i am at the bottom of the e-mail. It is too hard always go down and slide right or left.

  4. [Dislike]:Security Backup

    Backup security doesn't work well. I was asked if an old email account was my current security I wanted to use. I switched to my cell number. Then I was told I had to enter a code sent to my old email, that I didn't know how to access, to re-enter email or be locked out for one month. Horrible. I spent an hour figuring out how to get back into the old email and cancelled the security switch, (which required entering a code). Bad design.

  5. [Dislike]:don't break things that aren't broken

    why did u move the MOVE feature off the main menu? we use this feature frequently and don't need to add another click to get there when it was fine where it was! FIRE those idiots making these unnecessary changes that waste our time!

    youth laugh at us for still using hotmail. if u want to keep us oldsters using yur system, stop ruining it!

  7. [Dislike]:Put pack ability to select folders to move to

    A feature was recently removed. Put back the ability to select all folder for moving files (from the Move to menu) rather than having to search for it now. It's now harder to manage emails because you have to enter the folder name to search for it, vs being able to select from a list.

  11. For a message to automatically be considered read I have to click on the message that I sent. That's redundant.

  12. searching compound words yields noisy matches.

    if I search a word that just happens to have the letters "and" in the middle of it, all kinds of results return that just match on "and"

  13. [Dislike]:ability to divide inbox into custom folders for various email types

    let me create subfolders in inbox and decide what future emails get directed to which folder (eg from company x goes to folder 2 eg my banking folder etc). not as simple as a focused vs promotion split as is seen in one of your views.

  15. Need Ability to Customize

    Please create a separate version of Outlook for phones versus laptops/pads. It is obvious that many of the problems are caused by trying to create a single product which works on multiple size platforms -- and the user experience and needs on each are completely different. This includes the use of real estate, whether input is primarily touch or keyboard, etc. Either that, or make the user experience completely customizable so we can remove superfluous things that take up real estate unnecessarily or we can move items that are in the wrong location or we can modify the look and…

  16. Where did Waldo hide the slider bar?

    Are you going to invent a new high sensitivity mouse and some kind of magnification headset to detect those non-existent slide bars? My 20/10 vision and the gaming mouse I have isn't sensitive enough to find the tiny spot on my keyboard where it evidently exists now.

  17. Warning Of New Version so We Don't Think We've Been Hacked

    Please, please, please how about a warning before you jack the product so dramatically? At least put a notice on the login screen that it's a new release we won't recognize so we don't run a bunch of cybersecurity diagnostics, thinking that we'd been hacked or have accidentally turned on a feature like "accessibility" because the new display is so jacked up that we don't recognize it. I wasted a ton of time running diagnostics and then looking for how to turn off the new display.

  19. Stop matching contacts by sent addresses

    The email address entry fields will match bad addresses from email you have sent (that didn't get delivered) even though the address is not associated with a contact in the People database.

    In the attempt to make it smart and hide details, it was broken. I kept seeing a contact name in the match list and selecting it. None of the email went through. It turned out that at one time I had sent email to that contact with a bad email address (which kicked back). I later entered the contact in the People database with the CORRECT address and…
