  1. "Empty Folder" appears in Inbox

    "Empty Folder" appears in Inbox and other folders after switching to junk folder and back. Browser has to be closed or one has to log out of account in order to restore normal toolbar.

  2. verification is a pain

    Why do I have to "verify" my account THREE times before I can send an email!!!!
    Twice to even get into the account and a third to send the email! Unfortunately, I entered the six digit number from where the text came from, then tried to reenter the four digit code, not realizing that it was now requesting a new phone number to send another code to. I tried reentering another phone number for a new code and it tells me that I have exceeded my attempts for verification and to try again tomorrow!!!
    I will never set up another…

  4. Select checkbox

    The Master checkbox used to only select what was on my screen, this made it easy for me to clear batches of email quickly. Now, the checkbox selects everything in a folder, even if I've not had a chance to see it. This is not helpful at all.

  6. Deleted Items Folder - Mass vs Selective Delete of Items

    Deleted Items Folder - Need to be able to delete items by the page by clicking the Deleted Items button - available in previous version. New version selects all mail in Deleted Items folder to be deleted. I now have to select emails individually to delete - wasting my time.

  7. Rules do not work

    Cannot run rules after editing. You update the rule then try to run it and nothing happens. Tried using check box while saving a rule, tried to click run button - nothing. Well, in this was rules are useless if you cannot update them through time.

  12. No way to sign-out, no Help icon in Outlook.com (even after a couple of months)

    Sign-out and Help cannot be accessed in Outlook.com website in Mail and Calendar, except under People. Is this a bug? How do I sign out of Outlook.com?

  13. safe sender list

    Put the safe sender list on top of the outloo.com website. Reason this item is a setting and I am sure it is used often. The item itself is very hidden. To find it, one must use help and enter : find safe sender lsit.

  15. verify

    I cannot log onto outlook.com because it wants to verify who I am by texting me a pass code. I do not own a cellphone so cannot receive the code. Therefore I am locked out. All Microsoft online support could suggest is for me to go out and buy a cellphone. There has to be another way to verify. This issue also means I cannot send any emails using Microsoft Mail. Please fix issue.

  18. outlook bug

    the "new outlook" from web based outlook interface interprets lines with "CR" (carriage return) in the end differently than the "old outlook".

    The "old outlook" shows a new line for each "CR" while the "new outlook" doesn't, hence cause all contents of email body got concatenated and became a long line.

  19. Attaching a photo in an email message.

    In old Outlook we used to be able to move an attachment (photo) to the body of an email. I don't find that option in the new Outlook. Please bring it back.

  20. Blocking e mails by domain and sender should be quick and easy-its not. Please put the 2 options together, ie block send and or domain.
