  1. Infinite scroll makes it impossible to get to old emails

    Previous iterations of outlook.com have used pagination or viewport scrolling to allow me to accurately jump to any point in the middle of my inbox. The new layout, however, uses infinite scrolling, meaning that if I want to view a message more than a few days old, I have to scroll to the bottom, wait for a few messages to load, scroll to the bottom, wait for more messages to load, ad infinitum.

    In fact, I can't any way in the new inbox of jumping to a historical email. If I can remember that I received an email at the…

    Hey there, I understand that we’re having sporadic problems with sending email, specifically that they are being moved to the Drafts folder but don’t seem to be sending.

    One reason why this could happen is if your account becomes flagged for suspicious behavior. If you find yourself in this situation, please follow account verification instructions that are shown on the draft.

    How the **** can you subject your users to a product as bad as this?

    The scrol bar keeps disappearing. The list of emails keeps updating.

    Hey! I’m really sorry to hear that you all are experiencing this issue with the scroll bar. We were able to reproduce the issue on an Edge browser, but I’m wondering if you’ve experienced the same thing on other browsers too?

    Can you fill out this form letting us know which browser you’re using when you get this issue, and any other info that might be relevant? We’ll try to fix it asap.

  6. Can't attach files - STILL!

    Outlook.com has become a failure. It would seem that 90% of the time I'm unable to send an email with an attachment as I get to notifications to say either "The following files couldn't be attached" or "this message can't be saved at the moment". If this is a lame attempt to have me use the cloud or go 'pro' it has failed. I will now go to Gmail. MS - you're becoming a legacy and not current and vital!!

  8. Reducing Spam/Junk emails

    Allow Outlook users to block sender's name that uses the same name in multiple Spam emails that contain different numbers in the sender's information. Legitimate senders will have one sender address that Outlook will recognize if user marks it Not Spam/Junk.

  10. Mail > Subscription

    Hotmail/Outlook- Mail > Subscriptions > I can not delete newsletters I did not subscribe to
    Under my settings>mail>subscriptions - there is a ton of newsletters/junk email/spam that I never added and can not delete. I don't know how they got there and how can i remove them.

    No matter what I've tried to delete these it doesn't work - spammers latched themselves this way?

    We’re sorry people are experiencing issues here. We have gone back to the old behavior for the left-hand folder tree to always show since last year and we hope this has addressed most issues.

    There are some reports in the comments about individual folders not showing up. In order for us to get to the bottom of the issue, please post as much detail as possible in your comments. What steps are you taking? Which browser/computer/operating system are you using?

    Thank you for your help.

    Hey all, sorry to hear that you’re having this issue. The calendar events will display as dots when you are in the month view and your browser window is too small to display each event for each day.

    You could try making your browser window larger, so that more events can be displayed.

    Our teams are also investigating whether they could display more events in that space as well… we’ll keep you posted!

  16. Make Dark Mode work with other Themes

    The outlook.com dark mode is great start. Please make the Outlook.com Dark Mode even darker! Remove the blue title bar and all blue from the Dark Mode (at least give us the option). Blue light is bad for the eyes!

    It appears the black theme is disabled for dark mode. We need a total blackout mode.

  17. Too much junk from newsletter@***.us

    Filter out emails from newsletter@*.us - there has been in influx of spam coming from this format of email address. All go to junk mail, but I'd like to see them go straight to Trash. Cannot use * currently in Rules.

  19. Multiple Calendar Reminders

    I am looking at Office 365 as a viable alternative to Google Apps. One of the most useful features of Google Calendar is that I can have multiple reminders specified. So for instance my default is to receive a reminder 2 weeks ahead, 1 week ahead, 2 days ahead and 2 hours ahead.

    I can only see an option for one reminder on the Office 365 calendar and can't see how to add more. This is a serious omission. A basic calendar requirement in my opinion.
