  1. Outlook.com Inbox list: Vertical scrollbar out of view when window width < 1000 px.

    Outlook.com Inbox list: Vertical list scrollbar out of view when window width < 1000 px.

    Please make sure the vertical scrollbar is ALWAYS visible, regardless of viewport width.

    It's in the nature of scrollbars that a scrollbar doesn't make sense if it is out of view.

  2. Body text same colour as background

    Some emails are formatted such that the font colour of the email body matches the background colour.
    Outlook may be able to modify the colour of body text so that it is different enough from the background to provide contrast.

    My suggestion:
    Check if the text colour matches the background colour.
    Represent the text in a readable colour.

  4. Wrong year!

    Mails show /18 as year instead of /19 in the email header date. That's crazy.

  8. Tell them were do not exist!

    Tell them were do not exist!

    When I get email spoofing the sender I would like the option, from Microsoft, to return a message that looks as if Microsoft sent it, and which says the acct is invalid or has been closed. Htat is likely the only way I will get these people to stop emailing me from alternative spoofed addresses with the same message and from the same people. We need a tool to use to stop them in return.

  9. Outlook.live.com Mail App/Service Launcher Justification/Spacing/Color Feedback

    Hi, Outlook.com continues to push forward the "Fluent Design" style nicely.

    I have a comment about the change to the App Launcher on Outlook.com

    The new change, while I can understand that the Panel width is the same as the Mail Topic Panel, and is Top Justified Center makes some degree of logical sense, it dosn't make the most visual sense.

    A clean look with a Tile layout with no room other than the border gutter between tiles, and Top Left Corner Justified makes more sense visually to me and is what I have come to expect an praise from…

  10. Please don't just add new stuff to my mail. It works just fine before you added.

    All of a sudden I see a pop up screen on the lower part of my email screen telling me how many items I deleted. I do not need this and it is a distraction.

  13. Contact box

    Adding contacts - is there a way to move the box over when adding a new contact? While in an existing email and I click on the round initial a box pops up where I can ADD or EDIT a contact, but I can't move that box and that would be SO helpful so I could see what I need to enter form the email signature I'm looking at. HELP!!!! :-)

  14. Violation. Microsoft putting unauthorized names on email addresses and accounts.

    I log into hotmail with my primary alias, and after 2 days and error messages to cust service, the account icon in the upper right corner still shows the icon for a secondary alias. When I go into settings, the account name is correct, but the wrong icon is showing in the corner of the email/inbox page. Please fix your system. Stop guessing at and using names that the customer didn't authorize for the email account.

  18. "Item Deleted" snackbar stays up and blocks reading email.

    The "Item Deleted" snackbar now makes deleting mail a two click process. It's bad enough your spam filter puts this mail in my inbox. But now it takes twice as long to get rid of them.

  19. Accented Characters in eMail address

    I'd like to create an email alias using my Irish name - Pádraig Ó Fuarain; but you don't except accented letters in email addresses; is this a feature you are ever going to support.

    I'm and MS FTE (pforan@microsoft.com) and this is actually a customer provided feedback from Adobe Sign that I'm testing - thanks in advance for responding.
