  2. The "Top Results" items when searching aren't sorted by date, which is confusing.

    It appears the Top Results items are sorted algorithmically based by relevance (?), but that ends up being counterproductive - especially when I know I want the most recent response to a set of threads with a unique keyword.

    I've found myself searching multiple times and overlooking the result because it is at the bottom of the Top Results list even though it is the newest reply/thread.

    You're already pulling out these as the most likely results - I don't see the benefit of sorting such a short list by relevance vs. something like date.

  3. edit subject line on received email

    Old versions, you could edit the subject line of received emails. Now you can't. This feature was very useful streamlining digital file retention. Is this going to be revisited in future versions?

  6. I want the ability to turn off "Suggested Contacts" when I start typing in the TO field.

    Most of the emails I send are one-offs to business addresses and customer service. I do not want outlook.com to remember/suggest any of addresses to which I have sent email that are not in my contacts...you took away this preference to not remember which used to be in "Advanced Privacy Settings."

  7. Search result is not chronological

    If I search something I want the emails to be listed chronological.
    This is not the case at the moment.

  8. Difficulties in finding folders

    Search function for folder names and lsit all folders.

    I can't find some of my folders properly. When I use "move to" - I can see the names on all my folders. But it seems I can't find the folders neither under "folders" nor inmail. How do I find a folder such as "Gitarr" for example? ( I do have one folder called Gitarr and sång)

  10. search of cancelled emails

    when we want to find out a cancelled email, a long time ago, it would be intesting to have filters such as keyword, dates gap, in order to limit the big number of results

  12. Want to be able to turn off Autocorrect

    I have noticed a number of mysterious typos in my Sent messages and recently seen several on-the-fly corrections as I type. There seems to be some sort of "autocorrect" mechanism at work that from time to time just happens to make an outrageous word substation. If I search on "autocorrect" in the Windows 10 settings, I see that I have it turned off. Am wondering if there is AUTOCORRECT at work for Outlook.com but no option to configure it, turn it off. As an Office 365 subscriber, I am running the PREMIUM version of Outlook.com and wondered if that was…

  13. Searching is very difficult in mail software. It should search a persons mail/ subject/contents in all mails including archive

    Searching is very difficult in mail software. It should search a persons mail/ subject/contents in the body of the mails. The search should include inbox as well as including archive mails.

  14. Bug: multiple selected emails are cleared.

    BUG
    1. Run a search.
    2. Start selecting emails in the returned results.
    3. Click on an email outside the selection mark

    Expected: either the email is opened but when you go back to the search results your results are still selected OR you do not lose all the selected emails.
    ACTUAL: you lose all the selected emails.

  15. Filter options missing

    Please, enhance the search filters (filters by Unread, From, To, and so on... are a must!) Would also be good to be able to combine them.

  16. Could we have a function on Outlook whereby the user can search for all flagged emails?

    Could we have a function on Outlook whereby the user can search for all flagged emails? I often flag something to re-read or follow up later and then it gets lost in my inbox. There's a search box to find everything else, so why not for flagged emails.

  17. Missing folder

    There is a huge bug in Hotmail. In the non-beta version, a folder of mine has gone missing (it was NOT deleted!!). When I switch to the beta version, the folder appears in the folder list. I'm not sure what's going on with Hotmail, but this should not be happening.
