  1. mail controls [auto-rules]

    I would like to have the option of having more control over inbound mail and their traceability, this would and might convince me to upgrade to premium.

    appreciate that some of us are really poor and exploited anyway by providers.

  4. Need the backup mail-layout restored!!!!

    What happened to this backup site -- https://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/p/?linkid=853938 -- which until now had allowed me to restore the "classic' look of my email layout, with less space between entries and the ability to "copy" messages from one folder to another?

    The backup link has always worked until just now, since getting it from Support several months ago. And I want it back, PLEASE! The current layout -- which I've complained about many times in the past -- remains AWFUL and the loss of the "copy" function is frankly unforgiveable (it's still available on the "OWA" version of Outlook that I…

  11. Failure to delete

    Delete does not work on mobile. I am using Chrome on mobile (both Android and iPhone have the same issue) and whenever I delete, either swiping to the left of each message or using multiple selection deleted items keep on appearing when I reconnect. This has been going on for a very long time now.

  14. errors of calculation statistics required

    sum error was observed when I quickly calculated an amount on a spreadsheet and used Microsoft excel and LibreOffice calc.

    I assumed it was a typo but it is worth logging as it might be a result of an odd visibility errors.

    ERRATA CORRIGE

    Any idea how to correct errors of logic?

    A mathematical analysis is required with adequate statistical analyses.

  15. Can't scroll through folders anymore

    On the left hand side, the first scroll bar is so close to the second that it can't be used at all. That means that you can't scroll down your folders at all.

    Thank you for your feedback. We appreciate that you took the time to write to us.

    You might enjoy the new Outlook experience more with a few changes to your settings, which you can find by clicking the gear icon. Try changing the setting for Conversation view to Off, changing the setting for Reading pane to Hide, and changing the setting for Attachment preview to Off.

    We’re always interested in new ideas, but we need some more specific feedback to fix the problem for you. If you have more detailed suggestions, please update your idea or add a new one.

    You might also find this help article useful: aka.ms/outlookcombetahelp. It has some simple steps to fix common problems.

  19. Server Cache Error - Rare or Common (Definition)

    If you found an email in your deleted items folder that was 2 years old and had your tax documents attached how would you or we (Microsoft customers/consumers), address that? Particularly if you happened to find that when in the process of looking for an email related to a major credit bureau breach. In this case I would like more definition/clarification from Microsoft as a company (not just Outlook and Tech Support who see the issue differently). Please further define for customers what a server cache error is for any customers who observed this issue with their account. Thank You.

  20. Outlook Support Ticket Number

    Outlook Support - New Ticket vs. Re-opening old ticket.
    Do we (Microsoft customers/consumers who notice and/or consider utilizing this feedback system) think Microsoft Outlook support should be able to create a new ticket for us when we send them an email and it re-opens a new ticket? I would say yes or offer to do this on our behalf. Yes. You are still a Microsoft customer even if you do not have Premium Outlook.
