  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  4. 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)

  5. 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

  6. 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.

  9. 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.

  10. 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.

  11. 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.

  12. Search by year / find old mails / number of pages

    Hi

    With the new version, I cannot find old mails sent 2-3 weeks ago. There are no numbering pages, I have to scroll and scroll...it's boring.
    If I could go to the next pages and so one, it would be faster. With Gmail, we can change the page.

    Also, I would for example see my mail sent in 2016 but it's impossible. The only way is to scroll until 2016...but I have thousand of mails!
    With Gmail, I can search a range "after:2016/1/1 before:2016/6/1"
    With Outlook, I must know the exact date DD/MM/YYYY. I can't search by year und between…

  16. Show total number of items in folder (like in desktop Outlook)

    In Outlook 2010 and later, users can choose to display the total number of items in each folder (rather than the number of unread items). Please add this feature.

    Under review  ·  thconsta responded

    Thank you for your feedback on the Outlook.com beta! We are considering this change and will reply back when we have an update.

  17. I verify my hours by searching a month's worth of emails for each client. Not able to do this in the new version.

    Need to have a selective dates search for incoming and outgoing email from one sender. Businesses need a functional mail system. Beyond frustrated and feeling betrayed. If it's not corrected after this month's invoices are sent out, I'll be moving the business side of my emails over to my Gmail account. On a side note, who thought it would be a good idea to roll out a system without full functionality and let people "vote" on what they want added. At least start with what you originally offered and ask people to vote to expand upon the basics.

  18. Automatic Expanding Folders

    When moving an e-mail to a folder that has been expanded, passing over other (collapsed) folders makes them expand automatically immediately. This can move the desired destination folder off the page - most annoying. Folders should only expand after the mouse has hovered over for a certain period of time.

  19. Enhance the UserVoice Feedback Search and Results

    Feedback on the UserVoice Feedback page itself...
    1. There should be a way to provide feedback about UserVoice itself directly from a client's UserVoice site (such as outlook.uservoice.com).
    2. The search does not appear to support exact matches by enclosing text in quotes. Please add this so users can limit results.
    3. The search/results do not appear to support filtering by date range. Please add this so users can do more specific searches (excluding results from older versions, etc.).
    4. The search/results do not appear to support filtering by status (Completed or not). Please add this. (Also, why is the…

  20. Attachments cannot be downloded in Beta version.

    I was not able to download attachments from my mails. So I switched to the older version and I was able to do so in a sec. I tried downloading to the computer and saving to the oneDrive etc. From the mail itself, the drop down to download, preview etc was not also working.
