  1. Legacy Hotmail account problem

    My Outlook account gets almost no junk mail.
    My Hotmail account gets a huge amount of junk mail. What is going on? Is there some way to upgrade a legacy Hotmail account to get rid of the obvious junk?

  4. Easy report CRIMINAL activity function needed.

    No easy way to report CRIMINAL impersonations, enabling theft of data and potential grand theft of financial assets. A Report CRIMINAL activity is needed. Also, a CRIMINAL category would be useful right here ....

  7. Inbox Advertisements

    The advertisement at the top of your inbox is extremely annoying. It is designed to look exactly like one of your emails and I always click it on accident. I don't think ads should be placed in this way. So far I have given it a chance without ad blockers, but this is exactly why people use ad blockers. Please do not place them in annoying deceiving places. I have no problem with advertisements to the side of the inbox.

  8. LA FALTA DE JUSTIFICACION EN MENSAJE TEXTOS

    REGARDS. I TRY TO SEND MY WORD MESSAGE, IN JUSTIFIED TEXT, BUT BY COPYING THE MESSAGE IN HOTMAIL OUTLOOK IT IS ALIGNED TO THE LEFT, HORRIBLE. PLEASE CORRECT THAT ON YOUR PAGE, BECAUSE YOU DON'T HAVE THE JUSTIFICATION OPTION IN THE TEXT MESSAGE TOOLS OR NEW MESSAGE. THANK YOU SINCERE, ELKIN RODRIGUEZ, FROM BOGOTA COLOMBIA.

  10. Ad Preferences Settings OFF!

    Ad preferences settings, STOP reverting my settings back to ON when I've already changed them to OFF 20 times now. JUST STOP! I press "save" for a reason, why can't you SAVE my setting?

  11. Can't scroll with arrows in text

    Can't scroll with arrows through the e-mail itself. Don't like scrolling with mouse, because using arrow keys is much better foar muscles in wrist in arm.

  12. automatic replies don't work

    In the prior version of Outlook.com, Automatic Replies worked like a charm. Now it doesn't work no matter how many times I set it up. I test it each time with another email address and it works fine. Then an hour or two later it doesn't work at all and has been disengaged even though I set no timeframe for Automatic replies to turn off. It just turns off itself. Its useless.

  14. app launcher

    Yesterday my Outlook.com App launcher changed. That is the 9 dots in the upper left of the screen on your inbox page.
    It worked just fine in fact it was well thought out and such easy access to your apps. The apps were all shown in a tile layout.
    Now? I see 7 apps and two of these I never use, with 3 others seldom used. I have to hit "all apps" to get to the ones that I actually use.
    I am unable to remove, pin or add new apps on the fist app list to make it more…

  15. New log in page layer

    New Log in page: Why the change with an image of a young white woman? The older, simple version with only graphics was fine. If you insist on adding another layer for accessing the log in page, at least use a photo of a group of mixed-age and mixed-race people. Only young white women do not use MSN.

  18. Logged Out of Outlook.com Account When Accessing Office 365 BUSINESS Account in Web Browser

    When I searched for Office 365 login, somehow I got signed out of my Outlook.com account (I was asked which of two MS accounts I wanted to use). After using my Office 365 Small Business Essentials account in a web browser, I had to log back into my Outlook.com account and go through two-factor authentication to open outlook.live.com. This is very annoying and a waste of time since I am logged into the computer via the same account and have access to all my OneDrive files, my e-mails via the Win10 app, etc. Don't know what's going on in the…

  19. 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

  20. Upper right icons inconsistencies

    The icons on the upper right corner are very inconsistent: Skype has a filled icon while the rest aren't, the diamond icon is zoomed when hovering it while the rest do not, and they also have different sizes.
