  2. Provide option in settings to share junk mail report with 3rd party

    Please provide option to share junk mail report with 3rd party in the settings. I would turn this off as I still want the junk mail even though I have it filtered from the inbox using Outlook's algorithms. By automatically sharing the report, some 3rd parties stop sending E-mails, which I still want as they get my interest from time to time.

  5. The new email got slower

    Why do I have to wait to empty my folders, like junk mail? Can't you do that server side?

  6. Flagged message issue

    I don't understand how this passed your beta testing... But, this seems like an obvious UI failure: the "quick" icons on each message in the inbox (flagged, move to trash, move folder, mark as unread, etc.) move as you hover over them!

    For example, in the default view, there is a red flag on a message. As you hover over the message, the full set of custom icons appear, causing the flag to move position. As a result, the obvious expected behavior of "click on the red flag to unflag a message" causes you to click on some random button…

  7. "This message is from a trusted sender" needs to be more obvious.

    "This message is from a trusted sender" needs to be more obvious. Right now, the green icon has thin enough lines it's hard to tell it's green and I don't look at that line. My eyes go straight to the email. A flashier color or bold text would go a long way in helping us identify suspicious emails.

  8. Option to Change Encoding

    Please add the option to change the encoding of the emails I receive. They are decoded wrongly and it's very inconvenient (e.g. ISO8859-1 shown instead of ISO8859-9). Better yet if we could set a specific folder to always show a specific encoding. Thanks!

  9. mark all - Show me the number of emails (Web View)

    When i 'mark all' messages in a mail folder (Outlook web view )(Firefox 69) he does not show me the number of e-mails i have selected. Only when i drag the email and move the another folder he show me the ammount. Currently he say: "All emails in the folder are selected"

    When i select all mail from a folder, Outlook Mail should show me the number of selected emails.

  11. Must have a reply-to capability

    I need to preprocess my mail before it is dumped into outlook.com. How do i setup a reply-to so mail goes to my handler not just outlook.com?

  12. Please add the ability to use the Boolean "OR" operator when creating email rules

    There needs to be an option to use at least the Boolean "OR" operator when creating email rules.

  13. Unneeded Blocked Senders Notification Box

    We don't need this new message box at the bottom of the screen every single time we block spam. Just started showing up a few weeks ago and says view blocked senders every time. Don't need it.

  14. Email minimizing

    Why do emails collapse into just a header? I then have to hit a maximize icon to read them. Why did anyone think this was a good idea?

  15. Hotmail

    I had archived many very important docs and photos on Hotmail.com and I am absolutely UNABLE to access them....so wrong. I trusted this provider to PROVIDE. I hate HOTMAIL or whatever you call yourself now...nothing but frustration and disappointment that I've lost such valuable docs and photos. …..why did you "fix" something that WAS NOT BROKEN??? You have upset and frustrated many former Microsoft believers/followers. Shame on you. And to totally lack compassion about making it right (which would be easy for you) is unconscionable.

  20. Allow External Emails to groups

    I'd like to be able to allow external emails to be delivered to my Outlook group addresses, like in Office365 groups. The setting doesn't exist, though the emails that bounce back say I should enable it.
