  1. "New message" button

    The new "New Message" button is too large and distracting. Please change it back to the older style with the + symbol - the button itself was not so distracting and large.

    Thanks

  2. "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.

  3. Want to see recipients name or email address in a list outside of Inbox

    I would like you to implement a feature to see recipients name or their email address in a list outside of Inbox, because we don’t need to see message body.

  6. Getting Spam even with exclusive option on

    Spam blocker broken - my settings are on exclusive (only contacts) but, lately I'm getting all sort of spam in my inbox. I even tried turning it off and back on again just to see if it helped. Thinking about changing emails.

  7. Set the `From` field with sub-addressing tag

    The outlook/live allow me to use +tag sub-addressing [1] for my email address (e.g. emails <a rel="nofollow noreferrer" href="mailto:name%2Btag@live.com">name+tag@live.com</a> ends in my <a rel="nofollow noreferrer" href="mailto:name@live.com">name@live.com</a> inbox) which is great and I use it quite often. Unfortunately, I can't use the same in reply. If I modify the from field, the text box allows me to enter <a rel="nofollow noreferrer" href="mailto:name%2Btag@live.com">name+tag@live.com</a> address (it even have auto complete), but the sent action end with

    You don&#39;t have permission to send messages from this mailbox.

    It would be better if mail (1) keep the from as email address which was used to…

  9. Folders ... Folders ... Folders !

    More the time goes, more you add folders without giving the user the ability to inhibit/control them. How about in the Advanced settings, a section specially for the Folder Settings ? ... would be definitely great. Thank you for your understanding.

  10. html signature

    Easily add a html signature in outlook.com and mobile outlook app so signature looks the same regardless of the device i'm using to send e-mail. Currently, I can only add a HTML e-mail in outlook desktop app.

  11. 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.

  15. 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.

  19. Dark mode makes it harder to discern read from unread emails at a glance.

    Dark mode makes it hard to see new emails. The text is blue and bold and the left side of the row has a blue marker but the whole row doesn't seem to change color.

    I'd like it to lighten up the whole row to make it more obvious which emails are new and unread.

  20. 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.
