  5. Block Sender

    You marked "completed" the "Block Sender" item that had over 1100 votes and many more comments. The solution you gave does not work when the email is already in the "Junk" email folder. Right clicking on items in the "Junk" folder opens the email. It does bring up the "Block" function, but still opens the email. Again, your solution addresses emails that are not already in the "Junk" folder. Please reopen this issue and give us a way to block emails without having to open them if they are already in the Junk folder based on your spam criteria. This…

  6. mute forwarding nofication for a set time

    Everytime I log into my office 365 account to use my mailbox, I get an annoying notification that reminds me, that i am forwarding my emails to another adress. I know, I do this on purpose. I forward them to an account that I check more frequently (and keep a copy), so that I don't miss an important mail. Why is it not possible to tell the notification to "don't show again" or at least "mute for 3 months"?

  7. One or more free e-mail domains

    Outlook is the best mail service in my opinion. But only two e-mail domains "outlook" and "hotmail." It would be good to add one or more free domains. It would make possible for more people to choose their real names as an e-mail usernames. And more people would migrate from other services to Outlook when they are searching for professional free e-mail username

  8. Please move "Delete" & "Empty" buttons...

    Please move the "Empty Folder" & "Delete" icons further away from other buttons. It's too easy to tap that where it is.

  9. Files TAB in Outlook Web Mail

    Hello,
    The files tab at left bottom of the screen on Outlook Web, near mail,calendar,people is keeping a history of attachments from emails received or sent,even if you deleted all traces of those emails.
    On the same tab,it tracks a history of people you had contact with,and when you click them,shows a history of attachments received or sent,even if those emails were deleted from everywhere.
    After speaking with support,it seems they are stored somewhere in some cloud.
    I find this a huge privacy problem,for Outlook to keep traces of deleted emails attachments and persons you had contact with stored and…

  10. Generating special passwords from user account in order to add email to Outlook

    Adding emails like yahoo and Aol cannot be done using the 'add an account' on Outlook without going to the yahoo or aol user account and generating a password from the account. The user account sign in password will not work with 'add an account' like it will with gmail. . Could not find that information anywhere on Outlook or any site I reviewed.

  13. Classifications and DLMs

    Previously, while sending a new email, it used to prompt me to use the classification and wouldn't send the email if I have not selected it. Now there is a new feature "Protect' which does the same work, but leaves a possibility of sending an email without the classification, at least at this point of time when you are not used to it. Can we please go to the previous system.
    Thanks

  14. .pst files to hold all login account settings and emails.

    .pst files to hold all login account settings and emails, so when you import them into a fresh install of outlook after a hard drive crash. Everything loads up and you just have to tap in the password. Rather then having to setup the 7 accounts again in Outlook. This a computer after all, meant to do the work for you.

  16. Shared Mailbox Improvements


    1. When you click an inbox(Or any folder for that email address) of a shared mailbox when you click new message it automatically goes from your personal account (The account you use to login with) not the shared mailbox address.Would it not make more sense for the new message to work out which inbox is selected and send it from that address. It does if you open another mailbox in a new window.


    2. When replying to an email sent from a shared mailbox outlook.com defaults to sending from your personal account (The account you use to login with) and then puts…

  17. Outlook 2016 and authentication

    May 9, 2020 update.  I am having the same problem.  I found the fix.  This is done on a case by case basis due to the size of your organization. I support a 125 user educational facility. If you have a password policy enabled in your environment since it is enabled for machines that machine once receiving the group policy will hold on to it until they log back in to the network. I have mine set at 90 days.  With the COVID-19 outbreak users are all working from home.  This is causing issues because when I enabled this policy…

  18. There should be an option to copy Message Source to clipboard

    There should be an option to copy the whole message source to clipboard.

    Many times, it is required to submit the message source to the hosting companies for reporting abuses. So, if there were an option to copy all the source to clipboard instead of selecting the whole bunch of text manually, it would have been great.

  19. phishing email in quarantine

    Recent change to Exchange Online should be an option to Opt-in.
    MC200232, is being implemented and allows for phishing emails to be visible in users quarantine. I don't see a way we can configure this 'not' to have phishing emails land in quarantine (completely invisible to users).

    Organizations should be able to determine if they want this configured this way. Many of our users move items from Junk/Quarantine to the Inbox in order to make the decision for themselves.
