  1. 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…

  2. 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".

  3. lost folder

    I tried to move one of my email folders up by a few folders, however, instead of moving, the folder disappeared.

    I assumed that the "lost" folder had been dropped into one of the other folders as a sub folder, but I have looked in each and every one of my folders and the "lost" folder is not in any of them.

    The "lost" folder contains emails that I have amassed over a few years which I refer to when I need to. I don't know any of the specific emails that are in the lost folder to be able…

  4. Problem with Safe Senders list

    Several e-mails that are on my Safe Senders list are going into either my Junk Email folder or Deleted Items folder. That often causes me to miss messages I specifically programmed Outlook to go into my Inbox. I'm at my wit's end trying to figure out how to fix it!

  7. 'Message can't be displayed at the moment'

    Emails won't display in Hotmail. It says to check your internet connection or try again later. It has been like this for hours. I NEED to get to one email that was sent to me as it relates to a job. This is VERY annoying.

  8. facebook

    Why did a reply to an email I sent addressed me by my Facebook handle? I replied to that email that was sent to my hotmail account. How did he know my Facebook handle? This has never happened before. I never signed in or linked my email account with Facebook. This recent incident happened after my hotmail was changed to this new Outlook interface without my permission. This is a serious privacy issue.

  11. Inbox reading pane flashes on and off!

    The reading pane contents continuously flash on and off which is very annoying. I'm using Windows XP and had the same problem with the beta version. For that reason I stopped using it and want the old version back! Also while the inbox list refreshes the top add delete button moves over so that the add can accidentally be clicked on. Also a very annoying little trick.

  12. Rules Not Working

    I have several emails that are supposed to go to specific folders, but here recently I see them either in my inbox or in my spam folder. Why aren't my rules working anymore?

  13. Flagged & Pinned Icons More Noticeable

    Is it possible to make the Flag and Pin Icons more visible with some more color similar to the previous version?

    Currently the icons are just an outline, however the previous version showed the icons filled with a color, for example, of red, making it more visible.

    Thank you.

  14. Not getting email from safe sender

    Not getting email from safe sender. I've added them as a contact, as a favorite, and have them in safe senders list yet I get no email from them. I know that they're sending it because my wife does get emails from this address and they have my email in the TO field.

  15. Please restore the option to Copy emails to more than one folder.

    Where is the option when Moving emails to Copy them to another folder? That is an essential feature! Please restore this critical feature asap, otherwise users have to forward emails to themselves to be able to file a second copy in another folder.

  16. Recall E-mails

    I suggest having a recall option in outlook.com
    There have been many times where I may send an email out of business hours then it has been rectified prior to the next business day where I am then unable to recall this email for them to be bothered with. It will also allow for any emails that you have written incorrectly or to the wrong recipient to be recalled, rather than 'undo' which only allows for a few seconds. I have been after this recall option for many years now and I feel it would be a great asset. After…

  18. Forced me into changing my passwords

    I NEVER ENTERED the wrong password! For some reason it just wasn't being accepted.
    Then when I tried to log into my backup email contact on Outlook... it wouldn't accept my password for that account either!
    Why am I being FORCED into changing my passwords??? -Tim
