  1. Move or hide the "Files" section on the left bar

    The new section "Files" in the left bar (to access fast to the email attachments) should be moved below the main Mail Directories, because the main use of the interface is navigate between mails and not files.

  3. Phishing spanish translation

    You have mistranslated the word "phishing", you have translated it as "pesca" which is the Spanish word for "fishing". Either you put back phishing or you put identity theft, because "pesca" is ridiculous.

  6. View/settings

    The format blows. You should have all the menus on the left side so it is easy to navigate like it used to be.

  7. Account recovery

    Please expand the account recovery form to include more questions, & thus more chance to recover an old account. Questions like "(apprimately) when was the account made", "(appr.) when did you last login", "from which email accounts did you receive emails" and "to which accounts was your email linked" would be helpful. I know the last two are less reliable, but maybe make them 'weigh' less importance to compensate. And maybe allow for a 5~10% window on the "when" questions if theyre more than 2 months ago.
    Lastly, it would be really nice if it were possible to speak to…

  9. Option to disable "Recover deleted items"

    You could allow us to not see this link. Every other option has button only, why this link in the top? I just want to empty my deleted folder without seeing links. Tks

  11. Leave Blocked emails as blocked.

    Please stop putting the entire list of Junk mail for the month on. I delete all mine and block them, why are they then showing in their hundreds each time I log. The new Outlook is very bad and should be put back to the original one, so called progress is not always good!!!

    I personnally dont want to have always this left side bar in front of me, and this left vertical side bar reduce the available space on the screen.

  14. Forcing Manual Synchronization with Connected Accounts

    Please add an option to manually force a sync of connected accounts. Currently, you have to wait approx 15 minutes for the automatic sync. If you wait for an urgent email of a connected account then one better uses the connected account itself.

  15. new view is HORRIBLE

    I can't believe I am the only one that hates the new "cartoon" like icons on Outlook 365. I can't believe this is supposed to be better. I can't even "see" when I look at my inbox that I have invites because the calendar invite icon is so light.

    Why the change? It was FINE. As usual with Microsoft, you take forever to address real issues, because you are busy introducing new things for us to hate. Really, really disappointing.

  16. Logout of all other sessions button

    A button which allows one to logout of all other devices easily. Gmail does this automatically upon changing your password, for example.

  17. Unwanted Updates, Changes etc.

    Respect Respect
    I don't know the game you play, but some of us out there work with Outlook. It's not just a toy, it's bread on the table. Each time you do something new, it can mess up a lot of things you cannot imagine. Please, a bit of respect. You know, someone some day somewhere will say to us, users, you'll only get what You want. No more unwanted updates. No more elongated learning curve. No more laughs behind your back. And Outlook is out.

  18. Move navigation back to bottom, too much left side clutter!

    Since adding "Gmail" into the left side navigation, all the navigation has moved to the left side. It's hideous! Put it back down the bottom where it's less cluttered AND more consistent with Outlook for Office 365.
