  1. 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.

  2. Bullets and Numbers

    When typing an email and I put a number or bullet at the start of a sentence then press Space, the app should automatically convert to a bullet or number list.

  5. Automatically marks read

    Whatever message is the newest message, it automatically is marked as read when I delete an email above it. I only want it to mark as read if I were to click on it again.

  8. Why is email reported as phishing sent to Deleted Items folder? Shouldn't it be sent to the Junk Email folder like any other junk?

  9. silver theme

    Please can you bring back the silver theme please. The white on white on white on white panels are so terrible. Bring some color down the left hand panel as well just to break it, look at old pictures of outlook 2005 etc. I just can't get used to this ugly outlook, no matter how much I tweak the settings.

  10. Font size in left folder pane is way to small (Vers. 1909)

    Is it really not possible to adapt the font size in the folder/navigation pane on the left? Currently the font is way to small. It would be great if the user has again the option to adapt it to his/her needs like it is possible to adapt the font size and style in the mail pane in the middle. Thank you!

  11. Add option to expand all sub-sub folders in Outlook

    I had the problem of having many sub-sub folders in 1 main folder & accidentally closed it and had to spend sometime reopening all the sub-sub folders. It will be great it there is option to right click main folder to expand ALL folders in main folder, that would be saving us all time !

  16. why

    Why not put up a section where you can block the sender i.e. Fred smith bathing suits rather than the person i.e. chtax @such and such e-mail

  18. Allow us to move Sent items to other folders

    I need to be able to keep all emails, INCLUDING the ones I've sent, sorted by subject, into separate folders. Now we can no longer move anything in the Sent folder to another folder, so I end up with related emails in different folders. Fix this.

  19. Forwarding email needs simplified

    Re forwarding email - if an email is being sent to a separate person please make it a separate entry in the sent box, otherwise different emails with similar headings get lumped together in the same conversation.

  20. Outlook Safelink Security risk for user

    Safelink Security risk is because of fake scamm mail can not always be easy seen when it comes to where the link actually goes too

    as an example fake amazon mail shows me this link
    https://nam04.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=https%3A%2F%2Frplg.co%2F885f2eb0&data=02%7C01%7C%7C589310be25fd475c034008d77275fc73%7C84df9e7fe9f640afb435aaaaaaaaaaaa%7C1%7C0%7C637103723379037080&sdata=YIta8Ox4mbXm7dHyH4mX2VFQ%2FEvRbNWWzCgiE%2BjCcII%3D&reserved=0

    This us unreadeable for the user and Outlook does not warn that this is a fake site

    the actuall link goes to https://rplg.co/885f2eb0

    a user has it a million times easier to see the actuall link and see its a fake address then what windows mail on windows 10 is showing the users ...

    This is why the current safelink implementation is a huge…
