  3. Junk Filters

    Your junk filters are so incredibly bad that I have to now send everything to junk and filter out from there. Wonder how and when outlook turned out to be so disappointing that now I have to look at using other email providers !

  4. View the auto-complete suggestions in the To field by specifying the certain condition

    It would be great if the auto-complete suggestions in the To field could be more focused by specifying the certain condition.

  6. Automatically block sender and ip when message is marked Phishing

    Microsoft's software engineers are smart enough to make this simple line of code happen - Automatically block sender and ip when message is marked Phishing, so that users' junk boxes don't get unmanageable by the quantity of junk that gets through. The time it takes to look up the sender data, copy the ip and paste it into the blocked sender panel just gets too long when you are dealing with 20+ junk messages at a time.

  7. Folder panel on the left doesn't stay open

    The folder panel on the let is closed by default and doesn't stay open when opened. This takes me two clicks for a folder change. Please add an option for that.

  8. Agenda pane options

    Please allow me to switch "Agenda Pane" on or off in "Settings." I know a lot of people like it but I don't use it and it makes my calendar too narrow. It is especially annoying when it opens just to tell me I don't have anything going on that day. I am smart enough to read my calendar and figure that out.

  10. Send blocked emails straight to deleted items instead of to junk mail folder

    Send blocked emails straight to deleted items instead of to junk mail folder. There are 2 options, to mark as junk or to block, yet both put the emails from that domain or sender into the junk folder. It makes no sense to have 2 different options that do the same. If something is blocked, it shouldn't ever appear in junk mail or the inbox.

  11. Hide Specific Spelling/Grammar Suggestions

    I want an option to hide individual spelling/grammar suggestions. I disagree with one of the suggestions and don't want to see the blue underlines. They are distracting.

  13. [Suggestion]:Efficiency -- Combo Button for Block/Phishing Report

    Need a combination BLOCK and PHISHING REPORT button. Because so much bloody SPAM gets through, we currently have to click to report the item as Phishing to hopefully downgrade the reputation and then we have to click a second time on Block to keep it out of our personal mailboxes on repetition. This should be a combo function -- obviously if something is a phishing scam about my PayPal or Netflix or eBay account being locked, it's sender should also automatically be blocked.

  14. Create a recurrent event on the multiple random dates at once in the Outlook Calendar

    I would like to create a recurrent event to select multiple random dates at once. Because we don’t want the event to recur in regular cycle.

  15. See all events for the recurrent item including events whose date/time has been modified

    I would like to see or obtain all events for the recurrent item including events whose date/time has been modified. Because If we change the date or time for one of the recurrent event, it’s no longer treated as the recurrent item and we are not able to identify when the item has been changed by opening the original recurrent item.
    So, it would be great if we could see all events for the recurrent item including events whose date/time has been modified.

  18. Mobile Hotmail slow and glitchy

    Mobile version of Hotmail is very slow to load and is very glitchy - keeps freezing - when using on both Chrome and Safari. Not interested in using app as a work around.

  19. [Suggestion]:limit search to contacts in my contacts lists

    Hi,

    When I search for someone in Outlook People or in the To field of a new e-mail message in Outlook Mail (or even the search bar of Outlook Calendar), a number of contacts/e-mail addresses appear I do not know:

    Image

    Where do they come from and how can I avoid these names to appear?

    Kind regards

    Stijn

  20. Need Safe Sender Button

    It is NOT functional that, every time I want to add an email address to the Safe Sender list for an email that has ended up in the Junk email folder when it is NOT supposed to be there that I have to (1) highlight and copy the email address, which often takes a few times because of the automatic pop-up that occurs when you hover over the address; (2) click on the settings button; (3) click on View All Outlook Settings; (4) click on Junk; (5) click on Add; (6) type or copy and paste the email address in;…
