  1. Need name + email to go out without adding a contact each time

    Please allow FirstName LastName <firstname.lastname@whatever.com> . Format might differ but we should be able to email a name and an address in <>. This is no longer possible on outlook.com. Thank you.

  2. Rules diagnostics reports unreadable

    Rules diagnostics reports are unreadable.
    txt files composed of html, when I open them they just don't help me understand what's wrong. How would code make sense to the majority of people trying to read this information and trying to figure out what's going on with the rules that don't work. You need to change the reports and make them readable by everyone.

  4. Outlook 365 (2016) New Email, Dictate Inserts Trailing Space in To:, Cc:, and Bcc: No Auto-complete

    Hello everyone I am speaking for the Visually Impaired currently using Narrator and Dictate to create a new email.

    Steps to recreate the problem:


    1. Run Outlook 365 (2016).

    2. Click New Email (by default the caret is in the To: field).

    3. Click Dictate.

    4. Say a person's first name that you know should be in your autocomplete list (autocomplete list does not show therefore Narrator doesn't recite the list of choices).

    5. Hit the backspace key on the keyboard and the autocomplete list will show and Narrator recites the list.

    For my test I used my first name Larry. Dictate inserted "Larry "…

  7. Tab Icon changes from mails

    Emails from Lieferando.de change the icon from Outlook in the Tab. (I use Firefox 65.0.1) That is confusing, if my email tab is now a food delivery tab ;)
    Could also happen from other mails, but I saw it only from "Lieferando.de".

  11. Calendar is now less flexible than before

    In the Calendar, am now unable to extend the duration of a repeating event. It used to work (I use it when adding a new cycle of the same class). Does not offer that to update any more.

  12. Like the new junk mail address converting to domain

    I made a suggestion earlier, about how I would like to easily convert email addresses in the blocked list, to blocking the whole domain. Easy edit options for conversion, so to say. Today I say it was renewed and working pretty much as I'd expect/wanted it. Lovely to see users are listened to, my compliments to the development teams!

  13. User Interface - Remove dynamically shifting buttons

    Example#1:
    Select an Email inside your inbox. It says "Delete" in the top Button bar. As soon as you select the second Item, die Delete Button shifts to the left because the "Answer" Button disappears.

    Example#2:
    You have 2 Emails in your inbox. Select the first one and the Button says "Delete". Select the second one and the Description switches to "Clear Folder" and again, moves the Button to the left.

    I get it, its context sensitive. But having the positions of UI Elements that remain present shift and change has never been a good design. If you frequently use…

  16. Printing from Excel online

    Your excel online print option doesn't work as well as it did last week. The default paper size is different, and even when this is corrected, the scaling option puts information outside of my printer margins, whereas it did not before.

  18. Whitelist dpinfo@dpgroup.com.sg

    Dear Hotmail,

    I have been anticipating emails from the email address dpinfo@dpgroup.com.sg for my online account with them.
    However, I have been informed that their email has been deemed as “Spam” and thus rejected via your email server.

    I would appreciate that this email could be whitelisted via your email system immediately to prevent further delays to my access to the accounts I have with this organization.

  20. Can't enter outlook after some time

    When I don't log out from outlook.com and get back after a few hours or a day or two, I get a page "500 Malformed request". Current way of solving the problem is to clear session cookies through the console. This is getting a bit annoying, since I have to do it every time.

    I'm using the latest version on Firefox.
