  1. Infinite scroll makes it impossible to get to old emails

    Previous iterations of outlook.com have used pagination or viewport scrolling to allow me to accurately jump to any point in the middle of my inbox. The new layout, however, uses infinite scrolling, meaning that if I want to view a message more than a few days old, I have to scroll to the bottom, wait for a few messages to load, scroll to the bottom, wait for more messages to load, ad infinitum.

    In fact, I can't any way in the new inbox of jumping to a historical email. If I can remember that I received an email at the…

  2. When scrolling through mail it is auto jumping back to top of the page

    When scrolling down through emails it keeps randomly returning to the top of the list. When scrolling through older emails and having to wait for them to load into the list it is frustrating to have to go back down and wait each time for them to load.

    We’ve identified one of the issues with Firefox which will be fixed when Firefox updates to version 57.

    One of our users has also posted a solution for Firefox that seems to work that you can try in the interim:
    1) Type “about:config” in the address bar.
    2) Click the “I accept the risk” button.
    3) Type “accessibility.blockautorefresh” in the search box (though, you might not have to do this – for me it is the third item from the very top in config).
    4) Double-click on the first item that appears to modify the value to “true”.
    5) Restart Firefox.

    We are also working on improving reliability and performance while scrolling that will help alleviate this issue on other browsers like Chrome, Edge, and IE. Those changes should be available soon and we will update this thread once those have been released.

    Thank you for your patience and understanding.

  3. Can't attach files - STILL!

    Outlook.com has become a failure. It would seem that 90% of the time I'm unable to send an email with an attachment as I get to notifications to say either "The following files couldn't be attached" or "this message can't be saved at the moment". If this is a lame attempt to have me use the cloud or go 'pro' it has failed. I will now go to Gmail. MS - you're becoming a legacy and not current and vital!!

  4. Problem with "Manage Subscriptions" & Junk Email

    Within the past 2 weeks I've been receiving excessive junk mail in my inbox, and most of it relates to subscriptions that I did not request, but which now show under Manage Subscriptions. I keep blocking the emails and have unsubscribed to the subscriptions in the mail tools, but I never had this problem before.

  5. Blocking selected senders

    Without opening any questionable messages, the "Block" feature previously available in the "Junk email" folder was good in that it displayed the email address ID for the selected message(s) before giving the option to confirm the "Block" request. This helpful option does no appear to be available any longer.

  7. Set email reminders on events

    Please restore email reminder functionality to calendar! I rely on this to keep track of my schedule and I'm now using Google calendar because I can't get this Outlook.com beta to send me email reminders.

  8. delay sending email or undo send

    Hi,

    I'm surprise that this feature is not yet in Outlook. I would like the possibility to delay sending email to a specific time.

    Thank you

  9. Today list on calendar month view missing

    Love the email section

    When using the beta calenadar, I no longer have today's calendar items on the right hand side on the month view.

    I prefer month view and to see today's list.

  10. Expand Calendar Color Choices

    The selection of colors for calendars is very limited, and the 9 choices given have several that look very similar. I would love more choices, or at least choices that are more distinct from each other.

  12. Calendar: Option to turn events from email off not working

    When I disable the checkbox next to "Automatically add events to my calendar from email" and click on "Save" afterwards, Outlook only retains the change for the current session (tried with Firefox and Chrome). As soon as I log off and log in to Outlook again, the option is enabled again, meaning lots of unwanted entries are being listed in my calendar. (Also I have no option to go back to pre-beta as it seems.)
    It would be great if this change could be retained even after logging off. Many thanks!

  13. unable to disable anything

    As a solution to some of your user's problems, you advise us to click on the gear on the upper right in order to load the setting pane. Then we can disable various functions. I'm unable to disable anything because the right side of the setting pane (where you can click to disable something) isn't visible-it's under-what do you call those things?-what you use to scroll up or down with. The right side of the setting pane used to be visible, but hasn't been for a while now.

  14. Searching is very difficult in mail software. It should search a persons mail/ subject/contents in all mails including archive

    Searching is very difficult in mail software. It should search a persons mail/ subject/contents in the body of the mails. The search should include inbox as well as including archive mails.

  17. Save preffered sort order for contacts:

    Everytime I return to contacts, I have to change the filter to my preference.
    OneDrive has a feature that allows you to save your preferred sort order.
    That would be a great consistent use of the feature in outlook throughout.

    I want to thanks everyone for providing feedback so that we can make Outlook.com better.

    The folder scopes that are available is limited today but you can still access them via the “All folders” button on the right side of the search box. You can also select a folder in the left pane first before you search. That will scope the search to just that folder.

    We are working to improve the Advanced Search function which will allow you to scope your search to any folders. We will let you know when the feature is available.

    Thanks!
