  1. 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.

  2. Replying to email

    Can't reply to an open email while it is open. I had to CLOSE the email to reply. Cumbersome. I HATE your updates so far. Bring back the previous version.

  5. Keep Sorting when navigating between folders

    When coming back to Inbox from another folder, the e-mails are no longer sorted by Sender, and revert back to default sorting by date. I want Outlook.com to remember how I want my messages sorted in each folder.

  11. Keep outlook classic

    I love outlook - and prefer it over google mail - for its classic, clear and business look. It was professional and not confusing like Google mail. Outlook, keep your strong identity. Don't be Coca Cola trying to copy Pepsi.

  15. Always resets to the latest email instead of where the last email I read was in the lest.

    With the previous version of Outlook after I finished reading an email from any where in the Inbox list and either clicked on Inbox or hit the MS internet explorer back arrow the display went back to the Inbox list in the area which contained the email I just read. With this new version of Outlook it puts me back to the beginning of the Inbox list and I have to scroll down thru the list looking for the same area where the email I just read was in the list so I can see if there are any other…

  17. Translation issue

    "Empty folder" button has a kinda incorrect translation for Portuguese (Brazilian). It's currently translated as "Pasta vazia" which denotes an state (the folder IS already empty) not an action (the folder WILL be emptied), I think it would be better as "Esvaziar pasta".

  18. Change it back so that email replies originate with the email address the email was received to.

    I have two accounts that I use from my main hotmail account. Whenever I reply to emails received to my secondary account, I have to change the "From" email address back to my secondary email EVERY TIME, when it used to automatically use the address that the email was originally sent to. It's very annoying, and wastes a lot of my time, and is confusing for my clients when they are getting emails from my main personal account, instead of my work secondary account.

  19. new window for composing emails

    I am still getting accustomed to the changes.

    One feature that has changes from the previous version is being able to create new emails in a new window. I noticed that capability has disappeared. Now, I click New message and the blank message shows up in my reading pane. If I wish to edit it or add content from another email, I have to save as a draft, locate what I want to copy, go to drafts, then open that draft in a new window,

    It would be handy to get the capability back to compose new emails in a…
