  2. please keep mails on non-outlook accounts available in my computer, do not move them to 'search' and 'online search'.

    I use non-outlook (pop3) mail accounts e.g. arie@schaberg.nl. Messages older than a month are moved from my computer and must be found using 'search'. There, just a few older mails are found (about 2 months older). Older yet mails must be found using 'online search' (I use no online storage like a cloud). There older mails (e.g. august 2017) are found. But I cannot move them to my computer. And Mail shuts itself down after 30 seconds.
    This really needs improvement.

  3. New feedback from Outlook.com (React)

    Why did you change my stuff, I like and understood the way it was. It was easier to read and to search for my email. Change my back to the old way. Thanks.

  4. Close email when selecting the the folder

    It would be good to have back the functionality on closing the selected email if we click the folder that contains the email. I don't like to have opened email all the time and right now I have to select a different folder and get back to the folder I was to not to have an email opened.

  5. [Suggestion]:Search default folder

    Please add a settings option: default folder for Search. Now Search searches in ALL folders and this is VERY DANGEROUS, I risk to delete messages also in the Archive folder, that must be untouchable. Add customizable default folder OR set InBox as defaut, NOT All Folders. Thanks

  6. [Dislike]:Search can't differentiate 'from:store-news@amazon.com' from 'from:shipment-tracking@amazon.com'

    Search for "from:shipment-tracking@amazon.com", result: all emails from all amazon email accounts. It has to return emails from a specific email address in this case! This used to work.

  7. [Suggestion]:Search vs Filter UI e.g. Unread

    When I want to search for 'Unread' messages there are 4, 4!! places which seem like they should do this - Search, the 2 different drop-down under Search (right and left), and then the Filters (which is the only one which does). This is simple bad UI and needs to be tightened up.

  8. Search recoverable items removes Restore option

    If recoverable items are searched and selected, there is no way to recover them because the Restore button toolbar at the top is replaced with one showing the number of selected items.

    The only way to restore items is to scroll through them all manually looking for what you can find and then selecting them.

  11. Search feature should default to showing all messages without having to choose addressee

    Search feature should default to showing all messages without having to choose addressee. As it is I have to select an address each time, which is pretty idiotic, since in 99 cases out of 100 I want to search among all messages in a folder. The option should be there, but the default should be that search doesn't need it specified.

  13. Search bar

    I need an option to disable the "Delete button" from the search bar, sometimes I delete some contacts by mistake and that's annoying. Thanks.

  16. Can't select emails from only one of the amazon.com email addresses, it grabs everything

    I'm trying to select only a certain set of emails from store-news@amazon.com but the search is like, "OH THIS IS AMAZON.COM I'LL GRAB EVERYTHING" and it's making it hard to just mass delete ads but save order confirmation and tracking info that comes from a different email

  17. Thanks for improved SEARCH tool. For 99.9% of my searches, allowing me to set default to "INBOX" would be helpful. thanks for listening.

  20. Searching not possible

    I cannot longer search old e-mails by sender or key words. Is this function temporarily out of order? When are you going to fix it?
