  2. Junk Email Deleted Quicker Than Advertised

    The Junk Email folder has a banner saying "Junk Email will be deleted after 30 days" yet it repeatedly automatically deletes things 11 days old. Really not happy!!

  3. Stop leaking Primary address when sending from Alias

    Remove Primary email address from the email headers when sending from a verified Alias. This leak of information removes most of the reason for having an Alias in the first place.

    Hey, thanks for the feedback!

    Is it possible that you’re accessing OWA from a different browser each time you’re signing in? The “Keep Me Signed In” feature will only work if you access from the same browser on the same computer in normal browsing mode.

    If you access in private browsing mode, it will not remember your “Keep Me Signed In” preference.

    Alternatively, if you clear your cookies, it will not remember your sign in preferences.

    Can you give us any more details about what’s going on?

    Colin

  6. Show an over 24hr event item in the timeline view

    It would be great if you could implement a feature that over 24hr calendar item can be shown in the regular time line when you book it.
    When you create a calendar item which is booked for over 24 hours in OWA/Outlook, the item will be shown in the top of the time line in the calendar view, and it is hard to recognize whether or not there is an event at a glance.

  7. Default Safe Senders

    DEFAULT SAFE SENDERS
    I would like to see everyone on my contact list automatically be added to my safe sender list. If they weren’t safe I wouldn’t have them set up as my own contacts. This should be the default in the system.

  8. 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.

  9. rules that work on spam folder

    I am making tonnes of rules to try to cut down on the amount of spam I am getting. I have dozens of rules, saying for certain words to be deleted, but they are still ending up in my Junk Email. The same words being used over and over in the rules, but they are still going through. So your rules are not working what so ever.
    I was told that the rules do NOT apply to emails that are you already direct to the spam folder, that your "spam" rules bypass any rules we make ourselves. That's rather annoying.…

  10. Blocking needs to be normal: no extra checkmarks and blocked items removed directly instead of moving them to the 'removed items' map.

    Please change the blocking section to normal: no need for checking an extra box to block mails and remove blocked items directly instead of moving them to the 'removed items' map.

  13. Hide outlook.com account on mail client

    When using the GMail integration there is always the Microsoft account visible even though it is not being used. I would like to see a way to remove or hide that account so that for people that get confused by these things (in my case spouse) do not have to see it if they are not using it.

    Of course I'd prefer to move my whole domain to Outlook.com, but that is another uservoice ;-)

  15. Junk Email Folder

    Junk Email folder - who decides what is 'junk' and how? I have recently had messages about insurance renewal, banking, and medical appointments all sent to the Junk Email folder because 'someone or something' simply decides that they are not relevant. However other **** in which I have absolutely no interest seems to appear in my Inbox. I suggest your algorithm that decides what is what needs some serious reworking.

  16. Scroll bar design limits accessibility

    Scroll bars are far too narrow, and making the bar mostly invisible makes it incredibly difficult for people with limited eyesight to see, and the tiny size can make it awkward to select.

  19. Reminders in Notification List

    After the September 2019 interface change, Reminders no longer show in the Notifications list, only "likes". Please have them display in the Notifications list.

    I had added a secondary calendar to hold all my daily and weekly reminders, so that my main calendar view would not be cluttered. But, unless I display the secondary calendar, I receive no notification at all from this secondary calendar. Prior to the update, the notifications appeared in the Notification List, and I did not have to display the secondary calendar.
