  1. Process customers hotmail rules before built-in junk mail filters

    This has been suggested, but has not been implemented. It's fine that you want to minimize junk by filtering it out to the junk folder, but this also prevents user rules from being effective. I want to DELETE any/all emails with keywords KETO or CBD. When you move them to the JUNK folder, it precludes my ability to delete. Don't override user's rules just because you process them first. Process user's rules, and if they aren't processed, THEN you can apply your built-in filters. PLEASE ACT ON THIS QUICKLY. It has been suggested long ago and is about time to…

  2. Folders ... Folders ... Folders !

    More the time goes, more you add folders without giving the user the ability to inhibit/control them. How about in the Advanced settings, a section specially for the Folder Settings ? ... would be definitely great. Thank you for your understanding.

  3. strict inbox, most good email in junk, gets deleted in 10!?

    So email that I delete from junk stays in the deleted folder. But email that is automatically deleted from junk after 10 days cannot be retrieved in the deleted items folder, which has resulted in me losing important emails. I keep inbox strict, so most of my mail starts in junk, and then I place it in the inbox or folders as required. Now if I am on a 2 week holiday and miss opening junk email I would have lost 4 days of email by the time I would check. So either allow us to set time for junk…

  7. Default Safe Senders

    DEFAULT SAFE SENDERS
    I would like to see everyone on my contact list automatically be added to my safe sender list. If they weren’t safe I wouldn’t have them set up as my own contacts. This should be the default in the system.

  8. Mail merge using Outlook in Microsoft 365

    I frequently need to mail merge emails and do so easily from the office using Word and Outlook. Currently working from home, I'm unable to do it using the web mail version of my account. Instead I BCC, which results in messages being bounced, blocked and junked.

  9. Left Pane items

    Dear, I just LOVE Outlook and would certainly not want to change to another mail provider! Had Hotmail/Outlook since the beginning and planning on continuing! Yet, to be completely satisfied, I would like to submit the following issue:
    Left Pane items: I would like to be able to select whether or not "Files", "Groups", "Archive", "Notes", "Conversation History", "Feeds", etc appear (as I DON'T use them and they take unnecessary space, plus they are annoying). If not possible to remove the "Files" and "Groups" items, could they AT LEAST have a function to STAY COLLAPSED (also really annoying to have…

  11. Stop leaking Primary address when sending from Alias

    Remove Primary email address from the email headers when sending from a verified Alias. This leak of information removes most of the reason for having an Alias in the first place.

  12. Mobile Hotmail slow and glitchy

    Mobile version of Hotmail is very slow to load and is very glitchy - keeps freezing - when using on both Chrome and Safari. Not interested in using app as a work around.

  14. Allow disabling IMAP on Outlook.com accounts

    You can disable POP but not IMAP right now. It would be nice to also have the option to disable IMAP.

  15. Change the name of "Files" to "Templates"

    Change the name of "Files" to Templates. That way is will be out-of-site and down near the bottom. I have always liked having "Folders" at the top. That way, it makes more sense when working with email.
    If I want to create something, I use a different app. Delete "Files" or change the name to Templates.

  16. remove snooze option

    Remove or provide option to remove Snooze option in Outlook. It is NOT a feature. It is too easy to mis-select the option on small devices. It is not valuable to all users and an annoyance to many. Valuable time is wasted trying to locate valuable emails when the option is inadvertently selected.

  20. safe sender list

    Put the safe sender list on top of the outloo.com website. Reason this item is a setting and I am sure it is used often. The item itself is very hidden. To find it, one must use help and enter : find safe sender lsit.
