  1. Want to move a message to a folder more easily

    Allow "move to folder" as one of the quick functions when hovering on a message. I can delete, mark as read, pin, etc, but I'd like to quickly move an email to a folder. Also, when presented with the folder list (for moving), any subfolders should be indented for ease of view. Thanks!

    I have accidentally flagged all of my e-mails (10,000+ of them) and would love an option to unflag all so that i do not have to do it individually

  3. translation error

    Translation error into Korean.

    When I click the right button with the cursor on Inbox, there comes 6 pop-up menus.

    One of them reads "빈폴더" which means "Empty folder" with the meaning of "Empty" as an adjective.

    So "빈폴더" actually means Folder that is empty.

    You should change "빈폴더" to "폴더비우기" which means dump all the mails in the folder.

    Please double check when you translate. It is somewhat disappointed Microsoft simply use a translating machine without checking it with Korean employees!

  4. Hotmail Inbox is not in sync.

    My laptop has an email icon which I believe exists due to Windows 10. It appears to be auto-tied to my HOTMAIL email account, however it is not updating the INBOX. I have to go to Outlook.live and sign in, to see my current HOTMAIL INBOX. I do not understand why the Windows Mail box is not updating the INBOX.

    The Outlook BETA layout has rubbish clutter. I see four columns, two of which, the email preview and the ad, are redundant or extraneous. The old format has three columns, of which the ad is extraneous.

    The customer should be…

  5. Microsoft has lost its touch!

    I can't believe MS spends all the resources into study usability, GUI design, layout, then make updates... and came up with a completely useless layout. I am loading Hotmail on a laptop running at 1920x1200 and can't read any email in either reading pane on the right or the bottom.

  7. expand the list with all recipients

    Hello,

    with the new Outlook 365, every time I receive an email, addressed to 3-4 people for example of which 2 A and 2 in CC Outlook shows only the nominal 1, while the other 3 the group writing +3.

    I would like that when +3 or +10 is written to you, you will automatically receive an e-mail for all the e-mails sent.

  9. stop asking how i want to share this file if the attachment is over 6mb

    every time i try and attach anything over 6mb i get an annoying pop up saying
    How do you want to attach this file? underneath is a grey box which says your file is pretty large: 7 MB you can keep your email small by sharing with one drive. underneath is upload to one drive then attach as copy then insert as picture. in my preferences i have already said to attach as copy. this new pop up happens every time i attach anything over 6MB!! this does not happen in classic. i used to get a message if it…

  10. Create one stagnant ribbon bar across, home, creating, reading, etc.

    My issue with the ribbon in outlook is this:

    1) I want to create one ribbon and have it used for all interfaces of outlook: Home screen, reading an email, writing an email, etc.

    2) When I eliminate a MS function (evernote), keep it off during any updates - see #1 above, I don't want it, I won't use it, and quite putting it and other functions on a ribbon I want to keep stagnant. You can send me an email telling me about some new wizbang feature but do not assume I want it. 99% of the time I…

  11. emails won't remotely from phone

    Deleting e-mails on my phone apparently no longer actually deletes e-mails in outlook? It works with other providers. Instead the e-mails are just sat online "unread" but deleted on my phone. No, I don't want to use your app.

  13. Don't replace the reply button with the send button without checking for new content in the email

    The reply button currently gets replaced by the send button. While this might seem a sensible default primary action in the new context, the awful performance of the service means that it is easy to mis-send a blank email thinking the first click wasn't registered.

  15. stop creating that annoying preview box every time I paste a link

    it's annoying. If I want to put some random preview box in my email I'll do it, don't make annoying decisions for me. Every feature of this new outlook experience is rubbish. Have you seen the trending feedback, everything is negative - for good reason. Seriously considering dumping outlook premium/O365

  17. folders

    You have automatically created hundreds of folders called notes 000000 etc and now I can't mass delete them!! SO Annoying!! You need to have a better way to mass delete mailbox folders. There should be away to select all folders and delete them. Better yet - don't automatically make folders!!

  20. Invert Focused and Other Inboxes

    Two separate email boxes seems like a good idea. However, an “Other” inbox seems to defeat the purpose by making you focus more on the least important emails. On the other hand, the “Focused” inbox should have fewer emails from the most important clients. It seems like the bulk of the emails should start in the “Other” inbox and then the user and system selects the most important to move to the Focused inbox. Similar to Apple Mail’s VIP inbox.
