  1. Organizing Folders

    Why can't you make a subfolder a regular folder without making it a favorite? Your fix of making a new folder and transferring all the emails doesn't work, it there are too many emails it isn't allowed

  2. Deleting mail

    Sometimes selecting mail to delete will allow me to simply delete. Other times, I get a popup. What is going on?

    This is very inconsistent. That is, sometimes I do not get a popup and my delete happens as desired. Other times I do get a popup. I'm sure there is some pattern that I have not yet learned, but when I click "Delete" I don't need a popup asking me if I am sure!!!

  7. Misc

    When I try to reply, the cursor doesn't seem to go to correct location. When I click on email, a new popup screen appears on the upper left hand corner of screen which is not convenient to read. Please, doesn't anyone check the new versions with the average user before publishing?

  8. Internet Explorer 11, in Outlook.Live not showing "Account Button", on free account.

    Tried to use Outlook.com for Internet Explorer 11 with my free account, and about 2 days ago, the "Account" button is now gone, There is no way to log out now. It is there for the pay version, but when I log into my free account, I have to delete all my passwords from Explorer to get logged out from Outlook. It works fine on Google Chrome, just not on Internet Explorer 11, with the free account, very odd.

  9. Flags

    This is VERY obnoxious!!!!!
    I read an email, then I want to flag it (only have red option, which sucks). Once I open an email, and decide I want to put a flag on it, I get an error message, that I can't flag it, since it had been opened/read. Then I have to delete about 10 messages, before Outlook "forgets" that rule, and then I can go back and flag it. A decade of more ago, We could flag emails after we opened them, and this horrible "rule" makes me angry every time I use Outlook. And, it is…

  10. Bug with "Move all messages from"

    Move all messages from function doesn't properly update after using it once. The email used for the move is always the last one used. For example, if you move all "Pizza Hut" emails to a certain folder, and then you try to move all "Walmart" emails it will still be doing the opperation on emails from Pizza Hut. If you cancel the operation and try again it will then be "Walmart", even if you then selected a different email.

  11. Streamline Option

    Drafts Folder Sort By Option [2 part request]

    p1. Can we have the option to sort by "tile".

    p2. Can MS remove the spacers if sort by title gets implemented or the option to hide/remove the sort spacers? ie A, B, C, etc. January, February etc. Tiny, Small Medium etc....

    Those spaces bloat the draft column.

    Thank you

  13. why making sender email addresses cannot be copied? I have to do click each one-by-one when receiving group-emails. very bad programming.

    why making sender email addresses cannot be copied? I have to click each one-by-one for copying/choosing email addresses when receiving group-emails. very bad programming, knowingly making difficulties for users.

  14. Number of e-mails isn't correct

    The number of items in the maps (for example the junk mail map) often stays the same, even if something changed (for example if I delete all files in the map). That sometimes make me think that I have a new e-mail, but in fact the map is empty.

  15. Attachments lack closing icon on the right when browser window is less than 1,000 pixels width.

    Attachments lack closing icon on the right when browser window is less than 1,000 pixels width.

    Please make sure that the closing icon "X" is always visible on the right upper side of any attachment preview, regardless of browser window width.

  18. PULEEEZE!!!!!!!

    It isn't enough that scrolling through the Pinned items (which I'm forced to have at the beginning of my email inbox) takes FOREVER, once I get to the regular emails & start working through them, the cursor keeps randomly resetting itself to some other location in the list of emails than where I was working!!?? Of course, the random place isn't among the "regular" emails, it goes to a random location within the PINNED emails !!?? forcing me to scroll through all the pinned items AGAIN! and AGAIN! AND AGAIN!!!

  19. Not closing when clicking on settings, help or skype button; top right

    Clicking on the settings, help or skype button in the top right doesn't close the corresponding menu but opens it up always.

  20. Is OWA attempting to look like Lotus Notes?

    I am just curious as to why Microsoft is trying to make OWA look like its long time rival Lotus notes? I like Domino but I think OWA should revert back to its old settings and stop trying to be something its not. The different colored icons just don't suit.
