  4. Name Change Incomplete

    I have changed my name in my profile some time ago (soon to be a legal change), and it has not changed in all places. Eg. when receiving a group email, when you click to see who the email has been sent to, it shows the old name. This is a major privacy concern and needs to be dealt with.

  6. Density Rocks!

    You fixed the density of email issue! THANK YOU! Along the way a change added way too much space between emails, so we could only see 10 at most. After complaints, you listened and fixed it! Now we're double that and the product looks great! Thank you Microsoft.

  7. I liked the old draft page as I could alphabetize my files or arrange them in any format that I wished.

    I liked the old draft page as I could alphabetize my files or arrange them in any format that I wished. There are many things that I prefer in the classic format.

  8. "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.

  9. Original message "automatically included" but not displayed

    Original message is not displayed to me while typing my reply (even in raw text mode). How am I supposed to even "reply" to it if I can't see it while so doing?

    Please give us the possibility to go back to the old version, as long as the new one has such defects...

  10. Circle to delete emails is too close to area where you click to open the email.

    Trying to delete multiple emails is annoying. It's too easy to accidently click outside of the circle, opening an email. Once that happens, all of the emails you click on and have a check mark become unchecked and you have to do it again. Please give more space between the circle and the actual clickable email.

  11. Folders unread email counts do not update after reading emails.

    If I have some unread emails in my inbox, and then read them, the panel on the left still indicates there are unread emails. This seems to be a bug.

  14. Connected Accounts Two Way Sync Back To Originating Mail Server

    Connected Accounts (Sync Email) should sync back to the originating mail server, especially when connected over IMAP. For instance, if linking a gmail or icloud account to Outlook.com, if the email is deleted in the Outlook.com app, it should delete it on gmail/icloud.

  15. Disable automatic conversion of smileys to graphic emoji

    Please let us have an option to disable automatic conversion of smileys to emoji.
    i want to see :) and not the graphic representation (which, to be honest, i find utterly hideous and causes compatibility issues}

  17. I'm tired of getting mail from senders I've already blocked.

    Every day I delete approx a dozen emails from CANADIAN PHARMACY from my Junk Mail but they keep arriving. Do you actually block them or am I just kidding myself?

  19. Compose and Replies should be on a dark background in Dark Mode

    When composing an email, either reply or new, the background is white.
    This should not occur when on "Dark Mode".

    Additionally, when highlighting text when in Dark Mode, the background that would usually display when highlighting is transparent making it difficult to tell if the correct text is fully highlighted.

    Thanks for the love. We are working on defining the best way to make this happen. As you know, when we released Dark Mode, we said that it was going to be the best Dark Mode experience ever. We want to keep the bar super high, so this will take a little time. :)
