  1. 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

  2. why isn't the junk folder available for searching

    You have default listings for searching various folders, but not "Junk". Why do I have to specifically go to the Junk folder to search in it?

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. 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...

  8. Search bar

    I want the search text boxes back to what they were in Outlook. I just learned today that a general search is on top of the Outlook client only. It was more convenient to have a search box in a folder created in your inbox and in the focused section as well. I work for the Judiciary and this change is not as time efficient as it was before. Plus the general search is saving my searches and there's no convenient option to clear out what I searched previously which looks junky.

  10. Missing search keyword by sender's email

    The search feature seems to have fewer options after the change. It used to be, when I entered a keyword into the search bar, I would have all these option about if I wanted to search only for emails to/from a certain email, but I can't find an option for that anymore. I used it a lot, please bring it back.

  12. 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.

  13. When moving email to folders. You can't choose from your full list of folders> Only a partial choice list pops up.

    I stopped using beta today because the way the move email to folders is set
    up. After you click on the move icon to move or save emails to folders, only a few named folders options pop up. Beta wants you to type in search box the folder your looking for to move items. I can't remember all the folders with specific names so it won't work for me.

  14. 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.

  15. suggestions of contacts in search

    The suggestions of contacts in search appear emails from contacts that we do not have, they should not appear, they should be able to be deleted. Suggested emails in search are always the same and do not allow to be deleted, hopefully they will change that.

  17. Search results in the new outlook version are limited to displaying only the first 250items.

    Search results in the new outlook version are limited to displaying only 250items.

    For instance if I search for emails between 01/01/2015->01/01/2018, once it reaches 250emails displayed you won't be able to scroll down more to see the rest.

    This is really bad and tedious, If I want to make sure I didn't miss any emails, I have to split my searches for the same item into multiple tabs with smaller intervals.
    With the old version of outlook there was no such limitation.

    Please remove the search limitation, or at the very least indicate that there are more results not…

  18. Make searching the address book more intuitive!

    Currently the result of a search displays addresses whose characters begin with the search keyword. But what if I want to match any character combination inside the address? So please make the search match ANY part of the address and not just the beginning. Or how about using wildcard search like %abc% (any part), abc% (starts with), %abc (ends with)?

  19. 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.
