  2. 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…

  5. I want to send or forward an email from outlook to a mobile phone.

    This would include attachments to the email if possible. The email would be converted to a text message and sent to the mobile phone or other device that gets text messages. Texting messages from mobile devices to Outlook would also be useful.

  6. I think I can't reset my password

    Why can't I reset my password. Please do not say because the wrong password was entered too many times. I just want to reset the password. How do i do this?

  8. Folder column layout

    Can you compress the height/layout of the email folder list in the left hand column. I file all my emails away and have 30+ folders, but scrolling up and down is a pain. Gmail can fit 40+ folders in one view. Why are outlook folders so spread out?

  9. 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.

  10. I can't see my emails

    I can't see my emails - only emails from the last 2 weeks. If I search, I can find them but I need to be able to acces all, not just 30. It is impossible to use now

  11. Change it back so that email replies originate with the email address the email was received to.

    I have two accounts that I use from my main hotmail account. Whenever I reply to emails received to my secondary account, I have to change the "From" email address back to my secondary email EVERY TIME, when it used to automatically use the address that the email was originally sent to. It's very annoying, and wastes a lot of my time, and is confusing for my clients when they are getting emails from my main personal account, instead of my work secondary account.

  12. Mark the mail as read after reading.

    Marked as read feature is missing because when I read an email from current window it doesn't mark it as read. This fault has existed for months.

  15. 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…

  16. 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...

  18. Pas de copier-coller dans le champ de l'adresse?

    Bonjour,
    Je ne suis pas capable de faire un copier-coller pour ajouter une adresse dans le champ ''à'' pour un courriel. Pourquoi?

  19. Menu

    Is there any way to make the web mail Outlook show the standard File menu instead of that worthless menu that appears now? The one that has symbols with no known meaning??? What idiots created this software?

  20. Official business account verified icon

    Recently, My friend and I received many emails from the bank account. Those email content wrote by using formal language and seems to be reliable. We notice that it was faked by their email address.

    We understand that it was hard to control the sign-up process so we would like to suggest an idea of ' Official business account verified icon ' which
    - You can see the (color) check icon after their name.
    - The icon should shown a tooltip such as ' this account was verified '
    - the user must submit the commercial registration to verify their…
