  1. anonymize feedback

    I don't want my full name showing for feedback. For emails, yes, feedback no. I am also a windows insider, and they have always truncated my last name. I know you aren't probably the same co. collecting this, but follow their example

    Include a button for reminders! What is wrong with you people. I have seen it taken away from every mini app now! Do you want me broadcasting this? REMINDERS are important to many, many people.

  4. move to

    I want to be able to move mail to selected subfolders.

    I find it difficult to believe that Outlook's designers have never seen a folder tree with sub-folders with the same name, but different content, on different branches of the top-level folder.

    Example: Top-level: Stores
    First sub-level, Pennys, Homedepot, Microsoft
    Second sub-level, duplicated in each of the above: Wishlist, receipts, credit

    In Classic and the earlier versions of Beta, Move To displayed the entire tree and it was swy to select the desired subfolder.-

  5. Rearrange menu bar

    rearrange and modify clutter menu bar. I only use about three items and there is just clutter that I personally don't use or need. Would be really nice, like Mac mail, to get rid of items you don't need and place the items you use where you want them.

  6. Different names for different aliases

    Names shown in the "From" column should be changeable. For different aliases, they should be able to show different names, rather than showing the name in account settings.

  10. Hyperlink

    Sometimes in order to make a point or refer someone to a web page or a reference, we need to insert a hyperlink so the receiver can click and go to the reference or page. But it is not possible as there is no hyperlink icon in the tool bar. I searched and tried Ctrl+k. There is no selection when you right click. Can you please add the hyperlink icon because it is something I use all the time in other email platforms. Thank you

  12. the opening visual when you log into Outlook

    There is a visual I have been looking st every day since it started posting- a woman, face lit by her mobile phone. It is not an image I want to see when I log in. There are enough unwanted images in the news media and in the world. I want to see something soothing, trees, the ocean, something of my choosing, like my screen saver -- not a picture which is becoming a symbol of lost generations on their mobiles. Why are you not thinking about things like this?

  14. More Font Suggestions

    Even though I like the new version, but what I like about the outlook version is that you had more of a selection of font to choose from. I also liked how you can have the font change color with every forward and reply.

  15. Why mess everything up?

    With all the negative feedback, I can't believe you would not fix all the issues that make using this email nearly impossible. At least offer an option to switch to the older version until you work everything out. I can't even scroll down before the window refreshes itself and sends me back to the top message. The extraneous organization attempts are fruitless, nobody needs their inbox split into extra categories - "This Month," "December," "Older," e.g. - when the date and time are easily visible on any email subject line. Come on.

    Why did you turn off desktop alert settings in outlook 2019, please? Why can I not change the banner to transparent anymore? The desktop alert box like this is disturbing and way too big compared to all previous outlook versions :-(
