  1. Remove odd background color

    Please stop the greenish background that appears on some words when typing an e-mail message. Evidently it's an advertising gimmick to search for something pertaining to the particular word.

  2. Dragging from focused to other isn't working

    Dragging from focused to other isn't working. When I try dragging something from my focused inbox to other inbox, it just shows a "no symbol". I have to then select the email and choose to move it manually from the Move To dropdown.

  3. Apply rules after a time period

    Apply rules after a time period (option in rules and sweep)...
    The simple ability to apply a rule after a time period or time after marked as read. This means that I have the opportunity to see messages in the inbox before a rule is applied.

  5. Move to the last or next message after deleting an email from Outlook for Android in DeX mode

    When using Outlook on Android in DeX mode, it is not possible to configure the Outlook app to select the previous or next message when deleting a currently selected message. This leaves an empty preview/reading pane and takes triple the clicks to process messages.

  6. Select & Copy text from a message in the preview pane for Outlook on Android for DeX users

    Android users who utilize DeX are unable to Select text within a mail message shown in the Preview/Reading Pane and then select Copy to put the selected text in the clipboard. Select Text, Copy & Paste capabilities are only available when drafting a new message or a reply. So the workaround to this problem is to reply to the message, then select and copy the desired content, then close the reply.

  7. opera

    Having a lot of trouble reading the first email incoming, takes a lot of time and trouble to get it to come up. The list of emails is there but no way will it show the detail.
    Using Opera which normally gives good service

    If the problem persists I'll have to change email service, it's that bad

  8. Unable to view web based outlook on 2 separate laptops. Why?

    I could not view my web based inbox on another laptop (LT2). The inbox and sent items were empty on another laptop (LT2) when I logged in the web based outlook. However, I could view my inbox when I logged in the web based outlook on the original laptop (LT1). Please advise what I need to do to be able to view my web base inbox on both LT1 and LT2. Thank you 07/11/18

  14. Expected But MIssing Parts of Outlook

    I thought this was going to basically mimic Outlook (i.e. if one wished to grab more than one email to forward it to another, it would have the "Forward" option. It does not so I could not.) Additionally, as I was scrolling, it kept jumping making it difficult to read and repetitive in scrolling. Good Idea but there are a lot of bugs and additional/expected Outlook features which appear to require attention.

  16. Color Code Email List Per Category

    Allow you to color the text of the emails in the list view based upon the category, as well as italicize and bold text similar to how you can do it in the Windows Outlook program.

  17. Functionality of clicking on the mail read/unread icon is bad in a human-computer-interface setting

    When clicking on the mail read/unread icon, then half of the width of the icon is assigned to the flag icon, this is really bad in a human-computer-interface setting. My computer screen is in HD 1920x1080, so I need the icons to be as wide as they really are. Can you fix that?

  20. Easy Add-in Access

    Need way to add favorite add-ins to the bottom bar rather than having to click the ellipsis to access them. I miss having ready access to Boomerang--need it back.
