  2. Ability to create new account after account deletion wait period expires

    Please bring back the ability to create new account after account deletion wait period expires.

    It was so useful when I started getting lot of junk mails. I will close the account and re-create as a new account which reduced junk mails to almost zero.

    At least , allow us to create the new account after 6 months or so, if not after deletion wait perio

    Anti robot puzzle rule is all wrong! To send my first message, I had to solve a puzzle. Okay... BUT: it asked me to spin the images untill they were "vertical", when it should have said "horizontal". Understanding the real rule was a struggle! Get it fixed please!

  10. Add a right click menu feature to change a selection mistyped in all caps to sentence case to avoid having to rekey it all.

    Add a right click menu feature to change a selection mistyped in all caps to sentence case to avoid having to rekey it all.

    It is very irritating to have to do this when e.g. caps lock has been hit by mistake.

  13. [Dislike]:Why is Hotmail censoring my email?

    Why is Hotmail censoring my email?
    I forwarded a youtube link about Biden and it has yet to arrive 5 hours later.
    Why has Microsoft become a platform restricting free speech?

  16. About the "easy-to-understand link name in email" function "メールでのわかりやすいリンク名" 機能について

    We hope that the "Automatically shorten links in OneDrive and SharePoint files" feature currently available in the preview feature will be available in all Outlook clients.
    The item name to be shared is displayed in the body of the email, so it is very easy to understand and convenient.

    現在プレビュー機能で提供されている "OneDriveおよびSharePointファイルのリンクを自動的に短縮する" 機能を、すべての Outlook クライアントで使用可能となることを希望します。メール本文に共有するアイテム名が表示されるため、とても分かりやすく、便利です。

  17. Delete / remove account after NN days in inactivity

    Google has an "Inactive Account Manager". Users have an option to have the account and associated services removed automatically after a certain period of time. AFAIK Google has set it to 3 months, but users can set the period to 6 months or longer (max. 18 months).
    One of the things that is certain in life is death. No-one likes to talk about it.
    With the Inactive Account Manager matters are taken care of without having to bother others, or when no family is left.

    Maybe it would be a good idea Microsoft develops something similar for their Outlook /…

  19. The trouble with updates is you not telling us what yu have done and how to do things we used to be able to

    When you install updates, tell us what you have done and how to do functions you have changed which may not be apparent.

  20. Please remove the dialog prompting users to download the outlook app

    Please remove the dialog prompting users to download the outlook app.
    It adds one extra click to every sign in, which is a bit tedious.
