  1. forwarding stinks

    Forwarding of mail is almost impossible with your new and improved? version of outlook. You can't select recipients as easily as in past versions and all in all it is a frigging mess. Please bring back the old version. You've put some lipstick on a bull dog but I can't see where you have done unit testing, regression testing, or system testing.

  3. Contact lists in Surname order but not when added to email

    I have created several contact lists and sorted the contents in Surname order. Why though when I add the contact list to an email does it show in First name order?
    This makes it extremely awkward to check I am sending my email to all the people I need to.

  4. Custom labels for contact email addresses.

    Please allow the option to create custom titles for email addresses. Rather than just "email" it would be convenient if we could label our contact's email addresses to "Microsoft Account" or "Apple ID". This makes it easier when sharing content to these services.

  5. Exporting a contact list

    I want to export a contact list of about 60 contacts into a .csv file, not all my 600 contacts. Why can't I find a way to do it ?

  6. search in contacts should include the notes

    Search in Contacts (People) should include words in the Notes area. When I use Search, it should find Contacts that have that text in the --Notes-- area of the Contact. Thanks.

  8. Want to distinguish external/internal user by presence icon

    With Office Professional Plus, I can figure out external users by seeing their square presence icon as they are grayed-out.
    However, Office 365 ProPlus does not clearly show the difference of presence icon for external/internal users. It would be great you would improve user presence icon to be shown differently for external or internal users.

  9. Contact list

    I would like to see the ability to move or copy a contact from the All Contacts listing to one of the Contact lists that I have set up. This would save someone from having to go through your entire listing and copying the emails of the people you would like to add to that list. It would enable me to send emails much more quickly to those people.

  13. Contact list

    when i am sending emails to multiple contacts my list ends halfway through and i then have to add them separately. The other thing is when i put in a contact name who is in my contacts and regularly used it will come up with all this people who are not on my contact list but does not show me the one that is. It concerns me that this may happen to other people who i do not know and they are given my email address.

  16. Contacts in folders do not sync with People nor with Android Contacts

    I should be able to create a Folder to group related contacts together, and have contacts in the folder sync to the People app on Windows 10 and the Android Contacts app on my phone.

    Currently, when I move a contact from the default Contacts folder to a custom subfolder (i.e. Family, Employees, Friends), the contacts no longer sync to the Windows 10 People app. Those contacts also do not sync to the Android Contacts app.

    Please update the integration and syncing with other apps so that contacts in custom folders will also sync.

  17. Display, sort and search contacts by nickname

    Please add an option to display contacts' nicknames (if entered) in the contact list instead of their full names, sort the contact list by nicknames, and display contacts whose nickname matches a search query in the search results.

  18. Can't edit website added in Windows 10 app on the web, nor see website added on the web in Windows 10 app

    If I add a website for a contact in the People app on my Windows 10 PC, it appears on Outlook.com under the label "Web page", but if I click on "Edit contact" on the web, the field "Web page" does not appear in the Edit contact window and I can't edit it. If I add a personal web page on Outlook.com on the web, it appears on Outlook.com under the label "Personal web page", but it does not appear in the Windows 10 People app.

    Please make the web app and the Windows 10 app synchronize and display the…

  19. Make labels of phone numbers and email addresses consistent with Windows 10 app

    Make the labels of phone numbers and email addresses the same on the Outlook.com website as in the Windows 10 People app. For example, People on the web says "Organization phone" and just "Email", whereas the Windows 10 People app says "Company phone", "Personal email" and "Work email". Both should say "organization" rather than "company" because it is more general and both should have the "personal" and "work" labels for emails.

  20. Search fails

    Why does searching on business/company name no longer. There should be an all content search on the contact card.
