  1. Outlook Support Ticket Number

    Outlook Support - New Ticket vs. Re-opening old ticket.
    Do we (Microsoft customers/consumers who notice and/or consider utilizing this feedback system) think Microsoft Outlook support should be able to create a new ticket for us when we send them an email and it re-opens a new ticket? I would say yes or offer to do this on our behalf. Yes. You are still a Microsoft customer even if you do not have Premium Outlook.

  7. Multi message select on touchscreen

    So, if the new interface is so good, why can't I multi-message select and then delete on an iPad in a browser any more? Seems I have to swipe each message one by one. That is certainly not a step forwards.

  10. Problem when reading pane is enabled...

    Hi, in Outlook mail layout settings, when I have reading pane enabled, I still want to be allowed to enable the "return to the message list" option after I move or delete an item that I am viewing. Because I don't want Outlook to auto open anything next for me. This is to prevent the current annoying behavior which causes new email to get auto opened and marked as read before I am actually ready to open them. Currently the "return to the message list" option is grayed out so I can't enable it when I have reading pane also…

  11. issue

    I have a couple issues that occur quite frequently and its become quite annoying to use hotmail.
    1/ I click and open an email and when I hit reply - before being able to write text, it automatically sends a blank reply to the sender.
    2/ when I select 1 email to delete, it jumps and deletes another email in error. I am forever finding emails (I am still working on) in my deleted folder. Very frustrating

  13. Number of attachments not clearly visible

    With the current design, the number of an e-mail's attachments isn't obvious.

    A user easily gets to believe that there is only one single attachment attached to an an e-mail while, instead, it has more than one attachment attached.

    With the current design:
    (a) in the inbox you only see a paper clip,
    (b) in the e-mail itself, when opening the e-mail, you only see the first attachment. Only a tiny, hardly legible note suggests to reveal the other attachments.

    I suggest:
    (a) to add a number bubble to paper clips in the inbox, showing the number of attachments,
    (b)…

  15. Manually added blacklisted keywords for personal spam protection are not working

    Receive tons of Finnish language "instant loan offers" --> don't have any need for mails including finnish terms for loan such as "lainan, lainaksi, lainasi, lainaa" and have manually blocked these with rules (subject line + body text) --> they have no effect, spam keeps coming

  17. I like Larger space for email and title. Simple and clear.

    I am very happy that you have returned to the original larger email format where I can click on the title and have larger space for email. Column for ads is smaller. Very good. I also like you listing emails by day and month so at a glance I can see when the email was received by me.
    Thanks again
    George Williams

  19. Security: Rules make Junk-Mails possible.

    Security: Rules make Junk-Mails possible. If I have Rules in my setting (move mails to folder) than i get Junk-E-Mails. You should check this.

  20. Folder difficult to use

    Since the "changes" when I delete anything in a folder the whole things goes back up to the top. If I am trying to get rid of some, but not all of the older items I keep having to go back to the bottom. This was NOT the case before. And, please get rid of those silly coloured icons beside each e-mail entry. This sort of thing takes power and are
    unnecessary.
