  3. 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.

  5. I like the feedback comments but is anything done by Microsoft to relieve the problems?

    Blocked emails turn up in subscriptions list that I did not want.

  6. 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.

  8. 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.

  10. Drafts are not saving!

    Drafts are not saving!!! What has happened to drafts? This is the second time I've typed a long email, saved as a draft, and then all but the first few lines disappear. This never was a problem before - and now I am extremely frustrated at my wasted time.

  11. Keep outlook classic

    I love outlook - and prefer it over google mail - for its classic, clear and business look. It was professional and not confusing like Google mail. Outlook, keep your strong identity. Don't be Coca Cola trying to copy Pepsi.

  14. 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.

  15. 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.

  17. 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.

  20. 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?
