  1. dark mode issues

    The overall issue is darkmode is very hard to work with as a developer, until recently we could override certain things that were breaking but the recent update adds !important to the inlined styles so we can no longer fix the bugs it causes.

    A few of the bugs that we’re facing include...
    Light colours are adjusted but dark are not, leading to a lack of visual structure where contrast is being used.
    When dark text is applied to a light background image the text is made light but the background stays the same making it very hard to read …

  3. Allow the creation of a rule that can block by sender name

    Currently there has been a massive surge in spam from phishing emails pretending to come from Netflix. Everything in the emails is different from each other aside from the core intent which is to scam someone, but the username that shows is always the same: Ņ​etflix

    Notice the special character under the "N" letter.
    At the moment there is no way to create a rule to block emails by contact name, please add it since they are clearly exploiting this now in full force and there is no common element (other than the sender's name) which we can use in…

  5. Junk Filters

    Your junk filters are so incredibly bad that I have to now send everything to junk and filter out from there. Wonder how and when outlook turned out to be so disappointing that now I have to look at using other email providers !

    I did not receive email when I sent or replied my outlook email to my another email account this morning. However I am able to receive emails. Why my sent email is not going through?

  10. Immediate alert of email stuck in outbox

    As the title suggests--instead of saving up all those easter eggs for someone to realize when they close outlook, why not prompt them AS IMMEDIATELY AS POSSIBLE that their email is stuck in the outbox?
    Email is ALWAYS intended to be instant, correct? So why on earth is the rationale to not bother to alert the user until they end their work day? This is so opposite of rational it hurts me.

    We had a user with over 10 emails stuck in outbox, WHILE the client even said connected and up to date. It gets better though--When he directed outlook…

  11. View the auto-complete suggestions in the To field by specifying the certain condition

    It would be great if the auto-complete suggestions in the To field could be more focused by specifying the certain condition.

  12. Extra page to sign in to e-mail is annoying and inconvenient

    Why do I have to be taken to a new pop-up webpage when I want to sign in to my e-mail? Please change it back to having the login screen come up as soon as you go to the website. Much more convenient that way.

  14. Folder panel on the left doesn't stay open

    The folder panel on the let is closed by default and doesn't stay open when opened. This takes me two clicks for a folder change. Please add an option for that.

  20. restore

    When trying to restore permanently deleted items, one should be able to search for the emails that they desire and be able to restore those emails from the search instead of having to scroll through all of the permanently deleted emails. When scrolling through the emails, there could be as many as 6,500 or more items within 30 days to have to view to find the desired emails. Also, they may overlook the desired email while scrolling down. Scrolling to find deleted emails is very difficult for users to accomplish. Being able to search for specific emails is important. Could…
