  1. 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?

  2. New feedback from Outlook.com (React)

    Before you changed the email system, each email identified in a search said which folder it was in (i.e. Inbox, Deleted, Drafts, etc.).
    This was extremely useful.
    Please fix the new system so that emails located in a search say which folder they're in.
    Thanks.

  3. Rename it

    Let's go back to calling this Hotmail. Having a product named Outlook and another called Outlook.com seems to be confusing your search engine.

  4. New feedback from Outlook.com (React)

    I hate this new live outlook. When I search I can't see which emails are in which folders and the print feature is terrible - I can't print without all of the text showing behind the print window, making the printout completely unreadable. This "upgrade" has slowed my productivity by a day or more.

  5. New feedback from Outlook.com (React)

    Please reinstate advanced searching. I can't imagine how I will get to a specific date over a year ago.

  6. New feedback from Outlook.com (React)

    Youve created categories again in the new beta, however once you have emails in categories I cannot find any way to search or access the emails in those categories, they arent in the left hand side and there doesnt appear to be any way to search filtering via category, so whats the point?

  7. 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!

  9. Replying to emails

    I really do not like the Beta version of replying to emails. When I receive a return email, I can rarely find my email to them, especially if it is a long chain?! I spend time searching for my emails.
    I also do not like the tiny space you are given when replying to emails.

  10. html email fails to render properly. Graphics don't load

    most of the time html email fails to render properly. Graphics don't load and there are NO links to add senders to safe senders list or to show graphics. So - back to non-beta I go.

  11. 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.

  12. 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.

  14. Cool Things from old version no more... :_(

    I cannot do ADVANCED SEARCH, that means specifically , that I want to search Text inside every message and not just the date...the date?! and thats the first thing someone don´t remeber again!

    And where it is the option where I can see the List of Mails in ONE column?
    that for me was clearly...with 3 windows at the same time makes me crazy...please give the option...again...

  16. Can't see the complete email; no way to double click and enlarge the page. Hate it!!

    Make it so we can see the entire email. Can't see the whole thing and it's frustrating

  17. Poor feedback format

    Please don't make me search over 700 possible problems to attempt to find what I'm looking for. If you really wanted feedback you would have actually done anything other than this lunacy.

  20. 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.
