  1. Swap Empty & Mark as Read on Other Tab

    The "Empty Other" button on the "other" tab is in the same place as the "mark all as read" button in the focused tab. Why are the two "mark all as read buttons not in the same place?
    Instead I mark all my Foucused messages as read, go to do the same to my other folder and hit "Empty" instead as its in the same place!! Just swap the Empty and read buttons over on the other tab.

  5. Rearrange Delete, Junk and Archive in different positions!!! Delete should be where Junk tab is!

    Please MOVE Delete to the spot where Junk is, and move archive to the first tab where Delete is!!!!!!!! Delete is hard to click on and I dont need Archive and Junk is dangerous as it blacklists important emails that I might want to delete or move to a folder!

  6. Dreadful "improvement"

    Items are being deleted seemingly at the whim of Outlook. This includes items 'saved' into folders for whatever reason and some of them are very important. Is there a fix for this mess. I am perfectly able to delete items manually and do NOT need them removed automatically both read and unread alike.

  8. Empty Folder

    When right clicking on an email or going to empty a folder, move deleted etc why can’t this be highlighted in RED & BOLD so these stand out more?

  9. Filter Emails I receive even when my address is BCC

    This is especially useful when you have aliases in your Outlook account.

    When the recipient’s address is used for email filtering (eg filter aliases to different folders) the filters do not work when the address was in the BCC.

    However for the email to be sent to the correct mailbox the Outlook/Azure servers must know the address, so surely the filtering rules should work regardless of whether the recipient was BCC’ed or TO’d

  10. Emails in the outlook app should forward exactly as is, not empty even though I see and think it's forwarding all of the message

    When I forward an email in the outlook app on my phone, it does not forward properly. Most of the email doesn't come through on the other end. Why???

  12. missing dropdowns from upper bar

    Hi, after recent Outlook Com design change, I keep losing my function drop-downs in the "upper bar", like "reply", "rename", "upload", "new", etc. I'm using Safari version 12.0.1. I tried emptying cache, doesn't work. Sometimes they do reappear, then disappear again. This affects Mail and OneDrive both. Best regards, Matti Vainionpää

  14. Mail mania

    Is there honestly nothing I can do to rid my computer of junk mail coming to my hotmail address and ending up in the junk/spam file?

    I've tried blocking individual email addresses, but there are new junk messages from the same address the next day....oh but I was forgetting that in Hotmail language Block means send to junk mail which is the file I'm trying to rid of such messages in the first place. There's a logic problem here.

    Then I've tried creating rules ... at one point I was dealing with a junk file with some 2000 junk messages…

  15. chrome extension for mailto outlook.com

    Is the a Google Chrome extension for Outlook.com, such that when a mailto: link in a website is clicked, it will open outlook.com all ready to send with the appropriate mailto address and subject? If not, there should be one. And, seeing the amount of traffic about this on the web, I should think the development task should be marked urgent.

  16. Drafts do not get cleaned up when sending a new mail

    Compose a new mail, address and send as always. You'll notice a draft was made and not cleaned up.

  19. You need a date on the email window

    There is no date on the email preview or email list. I have to open an email to see when it was received. That is ridiculous.

  20. Ability to select then move all emails between folders

    There's a system I use for work emails that get put into a particular folder when received, then after each email is addressed, it gets moved to a completed folder. What I would like, is the ability to go into one folder, select all emails within that folder <can do that currently>, and then have the option across the top to move them all to a different folder. Currently, after selecting all of them, I only have the option to Empty folder, or mark them as read.
