  1. The search feature is very inconvenient for older mails

    Bring back the option of finding emails in different folders and not just all at once. Highly inconvenient

  2. Search bar

    I need an option to disable the "Delete button" from the search bar, sometimes I delete some contacts by mistake and that's annoying. Thanks.

  5. Can't select emails from only one of the amazon.com email addresses, it grabs everything

    I'm trying to select only a certain set of emails from store-news@amazon.com but the search is like, "OH THIS IS AMAZON.COM I'LL GRAB EVERYTHING" and it's making it hard to just mass delete ads but save order confirmation and tracking info that comes from a different email

  7. Email Search by Address Worse Functionality Now

    Where I search by an email address, it now only shows me emails FROM that sender, and doesn't show any emails that contain that email address or sent emails. This is very bad compared to the previous functionality!

  8. Thanks for improved SEARCH tool. For 99.9% of my searches, allowing me to set default to "INBOX" would be helpful. thanks for listening.

  10. Confusing pop-up message

    I was searching for a name in my emails when a message appeared that I really found confusing and didn't understand at all.

    Surely these pop-up messages are supposed to make things EASIER to understand, not more confusing. I think the wording needs to be looked at.

    The message said "Quickly find emails from someone - Click the star to add to favorites, and we'll show all of their emails in one place."

    There are five things wrong with this:

    1) First of all, what star? I don't see any star on the search screen.

    2) Secondly, add WHAT to…

  12. Searching not possible

    I cannot longer search old e-mails by sender or key words. Is this function temporarily out of order? When are you going to fix it?

  13. Searching for FEEDBACK items...

    Please fix this (it's embarrassing to you....)
    When people try searching for FEEDBACK items, they get a long list of items, but there is NO scroll bar and no way to get to see items in results list. I had to resort to ADJUSTING SCREEN ZOOM LEVEL in order to fit in more results that I can see. Still, I was NEVER able to see all results. Sounds like certain aspects of your testing (of your own products) are completely missing. That is extremely unprofessional and not what anyone can expect from Microsoft.... Please fix it. Thank you!

  15. Search of email threads isn't helpful

    search of emails is useless! It brings up a list of email (threads) containing the search string but the string is nowhere to be seen - it is not highlighted

  16. unable to find item in 'recycle bin' [mystery]#

    I am nable to search order or find an item (in pdf format) that I just deleted from another folder as I was cleaning up my folders.

    search function this being an achilles heel of many web based applications and social media possibly due to indexation and other usability issues and the sad state of losing valuable information is the result of it.

  18. New feedback

    Email Searches: When I filter my emails from Date to FROM, why can't I choose a particular letter for a quicker search, instead of going thru all my emails? It used to be a feature. Thanks

  19. New feedback

    You say you have upgraded the service, but from what I see you have downgraded it.
    Yesterday I could click on the "FIlter" by "From" and quickly go to the alphabetized list of "Froms" and find my email very quickly.

    Today, you have slowed down the search results so that when I click on Filter by From, it takes many minutes just to get to the bottom of the "A"s, let alone find an email from someone in the middle of the alphabet.

    This backward software approach, where more complicated softweare approaches only yields much slower and even no-results-at-all results…
