  1. Option to disable "Recover deleted items"

    You could allow us to not see this link. Every other option has button only, why this link in the top? I just want to empty my deleted folder without seeing links. Tks

  3. Move the message toggle bar to top of screen

    The toggle bar that allows you to, for example, switch between your inbox and a draft message without exiting the current window is way too low on the screen. It took me a while to figure out that I didn't have to pop out my messages to navigate back to my inbox because it's in a place that you wouldn't notice it. Please move this toggle bar to the top (under the actions menu bar) or give users the option to move it.

  6. Need an ability to merge Microsoft accounts

    There should be an ability to merge 2 accounts into one and make the other one as alias. I have both @hotmail.com & @outlook.com accounts. I want to merge those accounts and make hotmail account as an alias to outlook.com account.

  8. Leave Blocked emails as blocked.

    Please stop putting the entire list of Junk mail for the month on. I delete all mine and block them, why are they then showing in their hundreds each time I log. The new Outlook is very bad and should be put back to the original one, so called progress is not always good!!!

    Anti robot puzzle rule is all wrong! To send my first message, I had to solve a puzzle. Okay... BUT: it asked me to spin the images untill they were "vertical", when it should have said "horizontal". Understanding the real rule was a struggle! Get it fixed please!

  10. Forcing Manual Synchronization with Connected Accounts

    Please add an option to manually force a sync of connected accounts. Currently, you have to wait approx 15 minutes for the automatic sync. If you wait for an urgent email of a connected account then one better uses the connected account itself.

  13. App Launcher launching apps in new tabs

    It would be great if the App Launcher opened an app in a new tab after you clicked on the app (I often have my email open and want to open other apps while also keeping my email open in the original tab). It would also be preferable to have the App Launcher close once you've clicked on an app.

  15. Screening of New Accounts

    Microsoft needs to "screen" new accounts that are created. Double check names for existing accounts, do a "Is this you?" before allowing someone to hit "create" on a new account. This will limit the number of duplicate/multiple accounts that get created.

  16. Move Snooze on Menu

    The problem is with the menu location of Snooze

    Steps:
    Inbox
    Open email
    Select ... on the menu
    Attempt to scroll down to select "Mark as Unread"
    Instead, system opens "Snooze" menu, so I can't see any of the remaining options (covered up by Snooze options)...
    I now have to click off of the menu. Click back on to the menu and then staying off to the side of the menu (so Snooze doesn't open), so I an select "Mark as Unread"

    Snooze needs to be moved to the bottom of the menu, so it doesn't block other options or…

  18. new view is HORRIBLE

    I can't believe I am the only one that hates the new "cartoon" like icons on Outlook 365. I can't believe this is supposed to be better. I can't even "see" when I look at my inbox that I have invites because the calendar invite icon is so light.

    Why the change? It was FINE. As usual with Microsoft, you take forever to address real issues, because you are busy introducing new things for us to hate. Really, really disappointing.

  19. Unwanted Updates, Changes etc.

    Respect Respect
    I don't know the game you play, but some of us out there work with Outlook. It's not just a toy, it's bread on the table. Each time you do something new, it can mess up a lot of things you cannot imagine. Please, a bit of respect. You know, someone some day somewhere will say to us, users, you'll only get what You want. No more unwanted updates. No more elongated learning curve. No more laughs behind your back. And Outlook is out.
