  1. Steps to setting an an alias

    When creating an alias, i feel there should be another step to assist you to create a RULE and inform you that you need to set up a folder. As i goes now, I set up the alias, but did not know I need to CREATE a FOLDER and create a RULE. Not enough info on all the steps needed to get a new alias to work.

  3. Show emoji description on hover

    When I add an emoji to an email, a lot of the emojis look alike. Please add a description when I hover over one ("eyeroll", "confused", etc.).

  5. Items in the Recoverable Folder are not searchable.

    Recoverable Folder should be available in the Search Bar. Outlook should show it just as it does for other folders.

  7. Your 'block' doesn't work

    Block means block. It should get kicked back to the sender as an invalid e-mail address. The goal is to make my address unattractive to spammers. A bad e-mail address means they remove it from their system. Removing it from their system means they don't share it with other spammers.

    If Block only reroutes it to the trash bin, this is nothing but a glorified spam filter. So quit deceiving your users and actually Block the trash we want blocked

  9. HATE Hidden Sidebar...

    Sick and tired of you hidden sidebar in my Outlook email. Do you know how much more wor I have to do to get to my emails? I do surveys and sign petitions and am in my emails constantly for hours. Hacing to do all of this in full screen has taken a toll on my eyes. My eye doctor says to not do that anymore. How can I CONSTANTLY click for the sidebar, scroll down to where my email aliases are, then click the email. I am so angry that we cannot just do one click to hide the…

  11. regarding deleting an email

    I delete a junk email and get a screen that says I need to "select an item to read". Why? That is not how it was before I got windows 10. Something so small and benign is now so ******* annoying!!!!!!!!!! It is adding up. Why is this happening??????

  13. Outlook filters suck

    Fix your filters. I have important emails ive been trying to receive for 3 days now and each one of them i have had to have redirected to gmail instead because outlook isnt getting them for reasons unknown to me. this has been fairly consistent across multiple services and platforms. its almost as if microsoft is trying to ***** me over. emails not in focused, other or junk. perhaps outlook really is only good for signing up for suspicious sites. in fact...fix it or i'll do my best to completely circumvent your spam filters and i'll stop deleting them. not…

  14. View And Toggle Flag ICON When Email Open.

    View And Toggle Flag ICON When Email Open. When viewing individual email use 1 touch to turn flag on and off (not a menu). Show the icon instead of "Flag for follow up" (which is actually ambiguous and sounds like an instruction). Thank you.

  15. Reading Pane Alternate background for odd and even emails

    The reading pane is difficult to distinguish different emails. It would be nice if the backgrounds would alternate different gradients odds being one color and evens being another.

  16. Web based Outlook Mail for mobile access: the Folders list doesn't keep the position of its currently selected folder

    Web based Outlook Mail for mobile access: the Folders list doesn't keep the position of its currently selected folder

    The following issue description is solely meant for the Outlook Team developers, please!

    It is quite inconvenient that with the new web-based MOBILE Outlook Mail GUI the Folders list ALWAYS opens at its INITIAL position and does not keep the position AT currently selected folder. This issue is only, or at least mostly, applicable to those users (or customers) who have LONGER folder tree structures with several (let's say10 or more) folders in their e-mail boxes!

    Kind regards,

    J.K.

  17. I like this service

    A "new item" symbol like a "red dot" on the "Toggle Left Pane" button if there is something new. ie Junk Email if the Left Pane is closed.

  19. Hotmail is stripping all my font formatting

    With the stupid updates MS has made, Hotmail is stripping all my font formatting so I can't figure out what I marked! And this is with BASIC stuff, not specialty choices. I hate MS!!!

  20. New failure in outlook

    Deleting a mail after reading it in the Junk Mail folder (cannot be sure about Inbox yet), results in a blank screen reading "select item to read" as opposed to going back and displaying remaining mails in folder.
