  2. "Folder Specific Rule" option on folders

    Add a button on folders that would allow us to create a "Folder Specific" rule which can be ran by right-clicking the folder that has a set Folder Specific rule then clicking "Run Rule". This would make rule setting easier to manage and run when a new rule is defined.

  4. adding a Re-editing feature after sending an e-mail to yourself directly instead of replying. (mainly just for yourself)

    This feature will allow more organization for your inbox. instead of replying to the e-mail itself, u can Re-Edit the specific e-mail within the folder/location of your inbox instead of replying directly to yourself. (this will be more useful for most people that have a very cluttered inbox - as many do) . and for those who have a more organized inbox, u can avoid the drag and drop feature/move/copy, etc. etc. and just save your work right on the spot. "maybe add a save feature like a symbol "like a floppy disc or something better than back in the…

  9. Prompt which folder sent messages should be saved to

    By default sent mail is saved to the Sent folder. This results in messages being distributed across two folders. When a message is sent I would appreciate the option to determine which folder it should be saved in, keeping all correspondence on the matter in a single folder. Thank you.

  10. Help and Account buttons to sign out missing

    The Help and Account (used to sign out) buttons are off the computer screen in maximized window mode, and I have to restore down the window to find it!

  11. capitalization

    A detail, but it matters. Please enact consistent capitalization on the left hand side link rail. It's "Deleted Items" but "New message". How about either "New Message" or better yet "Compose"? Thanks for listening!

  12. 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!

  15. Gmail categories

    Please add inbox categories in the manner of Gmail. For example: Updates, Social, Promotions and Primary inbox. Having just switched from that service it really is like going back to the dark ages having all different types of email lumped in together. So called focused inbox is not good enough.

  18. dark theme

    Using Dark Theme, I can see no visual indication of folders that can and can't be renamed using the right-click context menu. Even when the menu is open, the options to rename or delete seem available but simply do nothing.

    Be good if the menu items were 'greyed out' when unavailable.

  20. 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.
