  1. Difficulties in finding folders

    Search function for folder names and lsit all folders.

    I can't find some of my folders properly. When I use "move to" - I can see the names on all my folders. But it seems I can't find the folders neither under "folders" nor inmail. How do I find a folder such as "Gitarr" for example? ( I do have one folder called Gitarr and sång)

  4. edit subject line on received email

    Old versions, you could edit the subject line of received emails. Now you can't. This feature was very useful streamlining digital file retention. Is this going to be revisited in future versions?

  5. search of cancelled emails

    when we want to find out a cancelled email, a long time ago, it would be intesting to have filters such as keyword, dates gap, in order to limit the big number of results

  7. I want the ability to turn off "Suggested Contacts" when I start typing in the TO field.

    Most of the emails I send are one-offs to business addresses and customer service. I do not want outlook.com to remember/suggest any of addresses to which I have sent email that are not in my contacts...you took away this preference to not remember which used to be in "Advanced Privacy Settings."

  8. 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.

  9. Bug: multiple selected emails are cleared.

    BUG
    1. Run a search.
    2. Start selecting emails in the returned results.
    3. Click on an email outside the selection mark

    Expected: either the email is opened but when you go back to the search results your results are still selected OR you do not lose all the selected emails.
    ACTUAL: you lose all the selected emails.

  10. Want to be able to turn off Autocorrect

    I have noticed a number of mysterious typos in my Sent messages and recently seen several on-the-fly corrections as I type. There seems to be some sort of "autocorrect" mechanism at work that from time to time just happens to make an outrageous word substation. If I search on "autocorrect" in the Windows 10 settings, I see that I have it turned off. Am wondering if there is AUTOCORRECT at work for Outlook.com but no option to configure it, turn it off. As an Office 365 subscriber, I am running the PREMIUM version of Outlook.com and wondered if that was…

  11. Filter options missing

    Please, enhance the search filters (filters by Unread, From, To, and so on... are a must!) Would also be good to be able to combine them.

  12. Could we have a function on Outlook whereby the user can search for all flagged emails?

    Could we have a function on Outlook whereby the user can search for all flagged emails? I often flag something to re-read or follow up later and then it gets lost in my inbox. There's a search box to find everything else, so why not for flagged emails.

  13. Missing folder

    There is a huge bug in Hotmail. In the non-beta version, a folder of mine has gone missing (it was NOT deleted!!). When I switch to the beta version, the folder appears in the folder list. I'm not sure what's going on with Hotmail, but this should not be happening.

  17. Enhance the UserVoice Feedback Search and Results

    Feedback on the UserVoice Feedback page itself...
    1. There should be a way to provide feedback about UserVoice itself directly from a client's UserVoice site (such as outlook.uservoice.com).
    2. The search does not appear to support exact matches by enclosing text in quotes. Please add this so users can limit results.
    3. The search/results do not appear to support filtering by date range. Please add this so users can do more specific searches (excluding results from older versions, etc.).
    4. The search/results do not appear to support filtering by status (Completed or not). Please add this. (Also, why is the…

  19. Search by year / find old mails / number of pages

    Hi

    With the new version, I cannot find old mails sent 2-3 weeks ago. There are no numbering pages, I have to scroll and scroll...it's boring.
    If I could go to the next pages and so one, it would be faster. With Gmail, we can change the page.

    Also, I would for example see my mail sent in 2016 but it's impossible. The only way is to scroll until 2016...but I have thousand of mails!
    With Gmail, I can search a range "after:2016/1/1 before:2016/6/1"
    With Outlook, I must know the exact date DD/MM/YYYY. I can't search by year und between…

  20. Show total number of items in folder (like in desktop Outlook)

    In Outlook 2010 and later, users can choose to display the total number of items in each folder (rather than the number of unread items). Please add this feature.
