  2. Junk Mail

    Wouldn't it be great if we could just block all the junk mail?

  3. Blocking selected senders

    Without opening any questionable messages, the "Block" feature previously available in the "Junk email" folder was good in that it displayed the email address ID for the selected message(s) before giving the option to confirm the "Block" request. This helpful option does no appear to be available any longer.

  4. Why is blocking spam made difficult?

    It's almost impossible to manage spam and unwanted mail unless you are willing to spend a good deal of time searching around the programme and asking for help. No support in particular for blocking domain. Why? It should be made easy unless MS benefits from spammers activities?

  6. Deleted Items Folder - Mass vs Selective Delete of Items

    Deleted Items Folder - Need to be able to delete items by the page by clicking the Deleted Items button - available in previous version. New version selects all mail in Deleted Items folder to be deleted. I now have to select emails individually to delete - wasting my time.

  9. "Add calendar" options (subscribe to calendar, import ics files) were clearer and easier to find in old Outlook.com

    The options for adding new calendars were easier to find when they were at the top of the page; now I have to scroll down to the bottom of my list of calendars to find them. It also does not make sense that the "From file" option is under "Discover calendars". If I have a file I want to add the calendar from, then I already know about that calendar and don't need to discover it, so I wouldn't look for that there.

  10. Select checkbox

    The Master checkbox used to only select what was on my screen, this made it easy for me to clear batches of email quickly. Now, the checkbox selects everything in a folder, even if I've not had a chance to see it. This is not helpful at all.

  12. Inbox and scrolling

    Lots of problems with "scrolling"...this one is -- Email inbox--With scrolling so slow, I should AT LEAST be able to scroll with the page down/up buttons but there is no response...I am left with clicking for the down arrow in the scroll bar, over & Over & OVER & OVER & OVER.....!!! with only a line or few at a time!
    ALSO, when use quick-link icon to delete email, I have to wait 5-10 seconds, PER EMAIL that I delete, before it will show me the list of emails in the inbox, so I can continue. Really...THIS is what you…

  13. email deletion

    EMail Deletion

    Why can't I delete the emails showing on the panel vs having to delete my entire Inbox?? I don't like having to click each one seperately.

  18. We are still having issues with our "reply" "reply all" and "forward" buttons.

    We are still having issues with our "reply" "reply all" and "forward" buttons. When we hit one of those features, the email just goes away and takes us back to the general inbox. We then have to go find that email again in order to reply, etc. Please let us know if this is something that can be worked on!! It is very inconvenient.

  20. junkmail filtering

    Junkmail filtering on outlook is ineffective to say the least.

    Junkmail works in a few ways.
    - Robots scan the internet for email addresses.
    - Business collect your email for legitimate reasons (like receipts or alerts) but then continue to send unsolicited mail
    - by a robot flooding random emails with a readably sounding senders name, a randomised or misleading email address, misleading body content (usually duplicated from an existing reputable website, and requiring the user to interact by clicking a hyperlink or download an executable.

    Does this look familiar:
