  1. logon screens not logging me anywhere

    I find myself at discomfort with an obtrusive logon message asking me for my password whilst I can logon with another session.

    is there something with session management that we need to quality assure please?

    cross browser compatibility tests are highly suggested as a measure of software quality.

  3. replies prematurely sent

    why are reply messages being sent before I have even had a chance to complete them. I now have to begin all replies as unaddressed "new message" so they can go no further than the "drafts" box when they spontaneously vanish.

  5. Sweep Error

    Every time I sweep more than 2 items it pops up an error and says "something went wrong" and makes me refresh the page. The messages still delete but the error is time prohibitive.

  9. Rules: I want MOVE my email automatically AFTER some time to the folders.

    I want MOVE my email automatically AFTER some time to the folders.
    for example, I received my email, I want it to be in the centralized email so that I can view and get notification and after 10-15 days, I want it to go to the folder I've assigned through the RULE function. It makes the work-flow a looooot simpler and easier.

    please let me know if you have something like this already.

  12. need support

    I have made no changes to preferences or settings. Suddenly, one week ago,
    after replying to an email, the next page goes back to the original email. I am unable to change it back.
    This is so annoying, and should not even be an option.

    How do I choose to close original email after replying????

  15. Focus group?

    'Empty Folder' has no confirmation prompt on your inbox, meaning I have just lost my entire inbox due to a misclick and cannot find any assistance to get it back. It always feels like Outlook mail is designed by a bunch of people in a cardboard box, some of the design decisions seem to have zero point or are completely detrimental to average users useage.

  16. No confirmation whatever when I click Send

    No confirmation whatever when I click Send (basic UI principles demand one), and it returns me to viewing an *unrelated* message I had opened a while ago.

  18. Selecting older messages takes over 1 second each

    When a folder has many items (in my case 250+), selecting those at the bottom of the folder takes over 1 second each. By comparison, selecting items at the top of the folder is nearly instant.

    Repro
    1. Open a folder with a couple hundred messages
    2. Select (check box) two or three at the top and observe the time it takes for the check mark to appear (nearly instant).
    3. scroll to the bottom of the list.
    4. Check two or three items and observe the time it takes for the checkbox to appear (over 1 second).
