      • Unable to use personalized address with a domain not regsitered with GoDaddy

        GoDaddy is an evil company that kills elephants for fun. I want to use a personalized email address/custom domain while NOT supporting killing elephants.

        • Custom domains

          when are Microsoft going to offer a sane choice for custom domains. The idea of being ripped off by godaddy to use a basic feature every other provider has is insane.

            • Allow customizable retention policy for Deleted Items

              As far as I understand it, the Deleted Items folder in outlook.com has a default retention policy of just 10 days, which is not very long at all. And it's not possible for the user to change this.

              When outlook.com provides us with a massive 15 GB of mailbox space - even more if we have Premium - there's no reason why we shouldn't be able to store our Deleted Items emails for much longer if we wish to. Previously I've used the Office 365 Business service for my email, and I had a 1-year retention policy for my Deleted…

              • Changes underperform. Give me my money back!

                Once again, MS Outlook fails with their upgrades. Lots of silly bells and whistles with more clicks and drop-down menus to navigate. Toolbars are diminished, minimized, or relocated to inconvenient places. SAD. Productivity lags from the former INDUSTRY-LEADER in digital office productivity suites.

                  • Where can I get a full set of instructions for OutlookOnline that I can print out and read all at once?

                    I am a subscribing member. Where can I get a full set of instructions for OutlookOnline that I can print out and read all at once? This would be much more convenient than hunting through thousands of postings and all sorts of useless FAQs so I could both be able to use the full capabilities of the site right off the bat, or look up a solution for a particular problem in a timely manor!!!!

                    • iCal refresh interval

                      First of all, impossible to send new feedback, because the list is unscrollable.

                      Two, I really need iCal subscriptions to update instantaneously, and not after 24+ hours. I almost missed a very important college semester project workshop today.

                      • push for premium vs market share

                        this may sound silly, because nothing is truly free these days, but bare with me.

                        today everything is connected with email service. calendar, contacts, everything. you use one service, you use other services from the same provider, because it's convenient - and then, maybe, some will spend some money on some of those services.

                        who figured out that such an infuriating idea like reducing the available space in outlook.com for non-premium users would be a good idea? i've moved away from outlook back to gmail because of that (well, long time ago already, because obviously this change isn't new), and…

                        • I do not know why paying for Office 365 when Outlook.com premium (calendar and contacts) is so bad.

                          Calendar and People hub need to be improved with more functionalities and choices. Lack of Customization even in Offive 365 Subscriptions!!

                              • custom domain

                                Currently, with personalized email (which is a great feature!), you can only add one email address from the premium interface.

                                This is pretty restrictive because people buying custom domains often have a few (firstname@mydomain, firstname.lastname@mydomain, ...)

                                Aliases defined with the custom domains works (outlook.com will deliver the mail to the proper mailbox) but you cannot add those after you enabled the custom domain. Email validation will fail, since the address is not configured yet (egg-chicken problem)

                                On top of that, when sending mail from such aliases, they will appear as being sent on behalf of the primary email adresse

                                My…

                                • Password Keeper

                                  It would be great since users have to sign-in in order to access their email via a computer, it would be great if outlook also had an encrypted password locker for the authorized user of the email, plus secondary security measures as well. That way users can keep track of all of the many passwords that they need and use in relation to their respected sites. This feature should only be available online for now and eventually can expand to the mobile access.

                                  Thanks Microsoft for your consideration of this idea.

                                      Cannot start typing a new message without going to the signature , hitting enter and then going up a line to start the message.
                                      It should just put the start where it belongs, like the last version.
