  1. 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:

  2. outlook premium

    I was an Outlook Premium subscriber for years. So disappointed that I can not renew my Outlook Premium without getting Office 365. I DO NOT need Office. I just need an ad-free Outlook mail. Hope it will be offered again in the near future before I take my mail elsewhere.

  3. Can't delete an email folder

    Can't delete an email folder. The filter don't give you that option even when the folder is empty!

  5. Indicate Current Account with Email Address or Address Nickname

    When you have multiple accounts linked within Outlook.com (ie, GMAIL), there should be some kind of indicator that persists while browsing messages that shows which account is active. Merely having the G logo or the Outlook logo is not sufficient if there are multiple GMAIL accounts. Would it be possible to add a setting to add an account nickname so that the logo showed 3 initials of the account?

  6. verification is a pain

    Why do I have to "verify" my account THREE times before I can send an email!!!!
    Twice to even get into the account and a third to send the email! Unfortunately, I entered the six digit number from where the text came from, then tried to reenter the four digit code, not realizing that it was now requesting a new phone number to send another code to. I tried reentering another phone number for a new code and it tells me that I have exceeded my attempts for verification and to try again tomorrow!!!
    I will never set up another…

  8. Send Calendar Invites from Linked Personalized Domain

    Ability to send calendar invitations from “personalized domain” email linked to Outlook account. It’s unusual that I can send and receive emails and even login from a personalized domain but I can’t select that domain to send my calendar invites. Super confusing for people who get emails from one email and calendar invites from another. This is a pretty basic feature and it’s unbelievable it’s not in the offering.

  9. Fix Spam and whitelist rules

    Not spam button doesn't ever remember settings. Should whitelist addresses so messages marked as "Not Spam" should never go into spam again.

  10. Only default calendar is checked

    Sometimes when I load my calendar view, it switches to having only the default calendar checked. I have four other calendars linked/imported, and it's annoying to have to check them again every time.

  12. 'People ' should be called Contacts.

    'People ' should be called Contacts. sometimes it's a company that;s not a 'human' , thats a firm, an operation lol, not a people/person. ?? People is an awful label for CONTACTS.

  14. Option to forward junk mail

    Mail forwarding (even with Rules now!) doesn't forward mail in "Junk". I've missed a few important emails now.

    Could I either:
    a) disable Junk mail completely
    b) Apply mail forwarding to junk mail

    The workaround here https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/outlook_com/forum/all/can-i-set-outlook-to-forward-junk-mail/c126d578-f3b6-41dd-a329-cd36ff30a116 doesn't seem to work for me

  18. Calendar reminder does not work

    Your calendar, in theory improved, does not send remind email. This is very unfortunate. It was working perfectly well, and suddenly I missed few things (to call doctor for my chirurgical intervention set up date for example) because I blindly believe for that reminder. Will make adjustments quickly?

  20. Change Two-step verification

    The SMS sending option cannot be eliminated from two-step verification. I use the same tool in many other services like Google and they let me choose which method I prefer. Especially since I have read that, although it is very safe, the SMS method is more vulnerable to an attack than, for example, Google Authenticator appp, which is what I use in my account. Also, I have used a security key in my account as a login method but I wish to establish the key as a second factor method since using only the key is more vulnerable if I…
