  1. Wrong year!

    Mails show /18 as year instead of /19 in the email header date. That's crazy.

  4. Tell them were do not exist!

    Tell them were do not exist!

    When I get email spoofing the sender I would like the option, from Microsoft, to return a message that looks as if Microsoft sent it, and which says the acct is invalid or has been closed. Htat is likely the only way I will get these people to stop emailing me from alternative spoofed addresses with the same message and from the same people. We need a tool to use to stop them in return.

  5. Please don't just add new stuff to my mail. It works just fine before you added.

    All of a sudden I see a pop up screen on the lower part of my email screen telling me how many items I deleted. I do not need this and it is a distraction.

  6. Pinned items list confusing

    Pinned items - why on earth do you now present these differently when pinned??? Now don't even show sender. Surely if there is an optimum or good presentation then use it all the time? List could do with compressing to get more items in view - surprise, surprise as it used to be!

  8. You have made my year by making Rules powerful!

    You all have finally done it! You've made Rules powerful enough that it can autodelete emails based off of items in the subject line or body! This means I finally won't be able to get spam from spambots that dynamically change their domain or email address with randomized names. THANK YOU SO MUCH!!

  11. Calendar entries not logical

    Too few entries on each date square and when there is 3, it only shows 2 with the 3 dots for more. This is just poor design for you can just show all 3 items. The old calendar was WAY better and easier to read. Bring it back, please.

  12. Violation. Microsoft putting unauthorized names on email addresses and accounts.

    I log into hotmail with my primary alias, and after 2 days and error messages to cust service, the account icon in the upper right corner still shows the icon for a secondary alias. When I go into settings, the account name is correct, but the wrong icon is showing in the corner of the email/inbox page. Please fix your system. Stop guessing at and using names that the customer didn't authorize for the email account.

  15. Pale and thin - please give up doing "modern" design. It hurts.

    The UI is very low contrast. Strains my eyes to read main text, such as folder list or subjects of messages that are not new.
    Not everybody has 3x 24" OLED screens to complain about "too much contrast". The "too much contrast" needs to be used in moderation. Most of the people can just reduce brightness.

  19. Large File in drag & drop

    When we drag file which is larger then 33 md it shows an error, Instead it should show a option to continue with one drive (to save the time of repeating the process with attach file option), same as we Attach larger files through Attach Option.
