  3. Multiple type of the same actions per a rule

    I'm tired of creating multiple rules just so I it can add in multiple categories (or whatever). Not sure why you can't add in more than one action of the same type, like why?

    This will allow me to get rid of a lot of rules and consolidate each one. Like for me I have two or three category rule sets for subscriptions/receipts/whatever else and that's quite annoying to do.

  6. Deleted Folder

    When I empty my deleted folder it tells me that it has been successfully emptied, but the next time that I open the deleted folder again all of the messages that I have permanently deleted reappear, so that my deleted folder is full again.

  7. Select all

    Instead of having it one way or the other bring back the old way and merge it with the new way!

    Something like holding down the select all button to display a new hidden option where you can choose between selecting all or selecting all that can be seen by the screen.

    That way if you have some many hundreds or even thousands of emails you keep in your inbox and do not want deleted you dont need to go through the emails you do want deleted one-by-one!

    Rule with action executing from a certain time
    (after 1 week. 5 days. etc...)
    For job seekers this would be favourable.
    I receive hundreds of emails a day without being able to see them all and most of them expire after 2-3 days (jobs move a lot)

    And an exception that would allow only "read" emails to be deleted
    This would allow to set up a rule that only deletes certain messages once they are read.
    Added with the condition of "time" this could be useful.
    For example a delivery, you know that it takes 24 hours so the email…

  9. HELP

  11. Reply Email on the Column

    I recently realized that Attachment Preview is on the Left Column while the Original Email pushed to the Right (Column). It is an interesting idea and I love it, still giving me access to the original email's content. However, I'm not sure about those user who has much smaller screen.

    Anyway, that inspire this Idea that Reply Email should also has the option, on the Left or Right Column. The current only-option is Reply Email appear on the Top. Shall user want to re-read multiple time the threaded conversation while replying the email, the flow isn't that productive. Left or…

  13. wrong french wording

    When one creates a draft mail and wants to cancel it. The word used in french should be changed from "Ignorer" which means "to not know" to something way more explicit like "Annuler" which means "cancel". Much better. Thanks :)

  14. Partially Retrieved Emails

    I have had a hotmail.com account since 2010.
    After the transition from hotmail.com to outlook.com I lost almost everything.
    Going through every painful process I could find online, inlcuding the Email Recovery Add-In, I could partially retrieve some of them.
    Now I have in my inbox emails that go back to July 2010, but the ones I really needed back, from one specific contact, I can't seem to retrieve in any way possible.

    What more can I do?

    Even when it's a free service, I see a lot of people such as myself, who had/have similar problems and got really…

  18. Unread Message Counter Inaccurate

    The counter displaying the number of unread messages is often wrong. I'll receive new emails but it hasn't updated beside the 'Inbox' icon, and I won't be aware of them as they are located in 'focused' or 'other' (whichever I'm not in). I also sometimes read/delete all new messages but the counter still displays new messages, causing me to search around fruitlessly.
