          • 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!!!!

                  • two gripes: 1. it is really irritating to be told that is not an office 365 area. It certainly isn't google. I am paying for help on off

                    I am paying for office 365 help. I am in outlook and word only. It is maddening to be told that is not the function of office 365 when it is all i have. It is also frustrating to setup my font and type for what i like only to have everything revert back to calibri 11. I am told that nothing can be done except gripe here. This is a joke. You are frankly not worth the monthly charge i am paying!!!!!!!!!!!!!

                    • Typing messages

                      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.

                          Hello,

                          please add support for custom Domains, because i think many people wait for this feature.

                                • Local part of e-mail address no longer accepts numbers at the start

                                  I used to have "8.bit" as an alias on my Premium Outlook package associated to my domain managed here: https://premium.outlook.com/#/ManageAliasV2

                                  I deleted the alias as I was at my maximum to re-add it as "8bit" but there was no on screen message to confirm/deny the request so I reverted to "8.bit" as I had previously, but this too failed to add.

                                  Looking at the console feedback, it seems e-mail aliases beginning with a number are raising 500 server errors.

                                  "API failed; URL: https://premiumapi.outlook.com/v1/aliases/8bit?isDefaultFromAddress=false& Action: PUT Status: 500 Error Message: 0x80048102-1an internal error was encountered, check the soap fault for…

                                  • 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…

                                    • 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…

                                      • Why is there a button to manage Premium when there's nothing to manage?

                                        The "Manage Premium" button no longer goes to "premium.outlook.com" which is needed to manage the grandfathered Premium Outlook subscription with a custom domain.

                                        • Premium: Inviting others has issue

                                          There are no possibilities to access Outlook.com-Premium features for Invitation of others or general administrative issues.
