  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. 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…

  8. Please reintroduce numbering of mail pages for each folder and show the total number of mails for each folders.

    Previously all folders had a numbered page system with about 30 mails on each page, thereby making it easy to flip back and forth through the mail pages.
    This page numbering was really a great help, also when deleting mails from folders.
    Futher - the total number of mails was shown, not just the unread ones.

    Please reintroduce numbering of mail pages for each folders and show the total number of mails in each folder, i.e. total *** mails in INBOX including yyy unread mails
    Thanks - that would be a great help!

  15. Make Search easier

    Your user experience for Searching through emails is extremely bad. Please revert back to the older experience.

    In the new experience, there is no way to filter the search results by Inbox, Deleted Items and other folders. This experience is so confusing..... Have you tried searching yourself in a bug bash before releasing this product?

  17. Select All and Archive

    Aside from having an option for Archive when selecting all mails, please have "Move to Archive" feature when doing search as well. It will help also when searching for expression or items and then Archive.

  18. Please hide deleted messages

    When you switch from "focused" to "others", all messages that you painstakingly deleted... are still visible. this is just horrifying.
    If I delete messages, I want to get rid of them. I do not want them to pollute me, even in some kind of a "all messages" view.
    the "deleted folder" is there if I want to recover something. the "all messages" view should show only clean and usefull messages. Not all the deleted ****.
    Cheers.

  20. Attaching files from OneDrive

    Logged in today (Oct 1st, 2018) and it said Outlook.com has been updated. The previous version remembers the folder in which I attached a file in previous email. Now each time I need to attach files in a new email, I have to navigate to the same folder again to find them. In the same email, it remembers, but not when I compose new emails.

    You may ask, why not use the search feature? Well, if I need to attached multiple files from the same folder, the search-and-attach method is inefficient.

    Secondly, when I search in OneDrive to find a…
