  2. scroll through search results

    Why can't I see all my search results? About 25 items show, but when I select all and press 'delete' I'm asked if I want to remove 60 items. Why can't I scroll through the rest first?!

  3. how can I add an existing contact (in people section outlook beta) into a particular folder.Just move a mail to a folder or category

    If I a particular contacts is searched from search tab , then the option of moving it to a separate folder is missing. TO move one need to manually locate the contact into the folder , then only that options comes. Please add an option to categories contacts (like Office, Frieds) just we can do it in mail.

  4. New feedback from Outlook.com (React)

    I did not like the new email organization, it got extremely polluted. It is difficult to search and read emails. It's too bad to move.

  5. 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.

  7. [Suggestion]:Grouping emails from sender

    Search emails by sender quickly. This used to be a feature and it was a huge help in the past.

    Please bring this back.

  8. [Suggestion]:Create sweep rules during message search

    The sweep button is missing after search results are displayed. For instance, searching "dog" brings up many emails from pet merchants. I would love to be able to set rules that delete email older than 10 days or all but the most recent email from these vendors. Instead, I have to cancel the search function, find the message, then set the rules.

  10. [Suggestion]:Browse Buttons

    Put UP and DOWN browse button for scrolling through emails at any point an user begins, its very irritating one has to go to last received email to get the DOWN browse button for backward browsing, Please make it user friendly not user deadly

  11. [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

  12. [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.

  13. [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.

  14. Back button next to adress bar doesn't work.

    I can't use the 'back' button of Google Chrome when I am in my Outlook webmail. I always have to press on an inbox to be able to go back. I can't send a screenshot, but I mean the buttons next to the address bar.

  18. 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.

  20. 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.
