  1. cleanup contacts

    There's a bug in "cleanup contacts." When I clicked on "cleanup contacts", it showed me the duplicates, but I can't scroll down the page. Since I can't uncheck whatever might be below the visible screen, I don't dare click "cleanup" because I don't know what's going to happen to those contacts. Hence, the function is entirely unusable.

  2. Contacts

    Writing an email in beta only brings up the My contact list. Unfortunately the sorting is not consistent and, in my opinion, My contacts should be eliminated with just contacts and simple sorting options of how I want to get my contacts sorted. The old version gives me the option of choosing 'My contacts' and 'Contacts'. In Beta this does not work.

  6. New feedback

    I add names to contacts and then try to put names into a contact list. Some go fine, others indicate that the name can't be found even though I can see them as a contact. This version is incredibly frustrating and annoying.

  7. When entering Contacts - LF/CR is stripped

    When entering Contacts - LF/CR is stripped. All formating is being stripped out of the Notes field in the contact.

  9. Save to Contacts

    When sending an email to a new contact, I used to be asked "save to contacts" and now there is nowhere to save a new email address to contacts!!!
    New hotmail is not as good as the old one as full of "categories/trivia" you would never want and unnecessary infantile options

  11. Convergence between contacts and calendar

    There is a function of Google contacts that when you add the date of birth in the contact, it is automatically registered in the calendar as "birthday".

    This is one of the reasons why I still can not occupy the Outlook calendar.
    I would really appreciate it if you could apply it.
    Greetings.

  12. New feedback

    Since the last "upgrade" to Outlook, I can't seem to add contacts anymore. Also, the contacts I do have, seem to still head to junk mail.

  13. new contacts

    Many of my contacts are businesses. Adding a new business contact requires too many click and select. The drop down box of previous is much more helpful.

  14. Can't Move Contact with Birthday

    When moving a contact from a PST to the main repository and that contact has a birthday entry, I am asked if I want to add the birthday to the calendar. If I click "No", Outlook states it cannot move the contact.

  17. Link people to calendar event by cell number instead fo an email

    As email address is no longer dominating method of people/contact identification in address book, now it is cell phone numberis main id method of contact identification that would be quite useful feature to link people from address book to calendar event using cell phone number. At the present time it is possible just for contact which email I have.

  18. Let us un-set contact photo

    There should be a way to "unset" contact photo. I have a bunch of contacts from back when contacts were imported from Facebook, I think it was, and they have somewhat nonsense/old photos that I'd like to restore to the two-letter badge. That'd be more useful than old photos, especially on contacts that are just an email address imported from Facebook.

  19. Outlook issues

    I do not like OUTLOOK!! First is could not find "People". Then when I tried to set up a group, My Name came up first and then the 8 others I added were only listed by e-mail. I HATE THAT!!! How can their names by Listed instead of the circle with a letter and an e-mail which means diddly squat. You are not user friendly at all. The improvements SUCK.

  20. Delete duplicates instead of linking

    The merge function for contacts should actually MERGE information in a single contact, instead of linking two identical ones!
