  1. 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.

  3. [Like]:Problem Verifying Activity

    Verify Activity web page: you are supposed to press one of two buttons to verify if the activity was yours or not: Buttons Read as follows: "This was..." grey color OR "This was..." Blue color. Hmmm? Which one do I choose. Had to look at html code to figure out which one to press. NOT USER FRIENDLY.

  4. Make outlook.com work togheter with outlook 365 and windwos Kalendar better

    I am using outlook.com because I thought it would work with outlook for windows perfektly. But it doesn't. I am missing:
    - Groups created in outlook.com do not work with Outlook 365, eighter with Windows 10 Mail/Calender/People
    - It is not possible to send E-Mails from an outlook.com conected alias (like googlemail) via Outlook 365
    - Group calendars (like the familycalendar) do not work with windows calendar and outlook 365.

    It would be great, if Microsoft-products would work on each Microsoft platform and I can not realy understand why it does not.

  7. [Suggestion]:Auto dark theme based on webbrowers theme

    Auto dark theme: Currently, you can turn the dark theme on and off manually. Would be more convenient if this theme took over from the web browser. Several websites are already doing this.

  9. Move Snooze on Menu

    The problem is with the menu location of Snooze

    Steps:
    Inbox
    Open email
    Select ... on the menu
    Attempt to scroll down to select "Mark as Unread"
    Instead, system opens "Snooze" menu, so I can't see any of the remaining options (covered up by Snooze options)...
    I now have to click off of the menu. Click back on to the menu and then staying off to the side of the menu (so Snooze doesn't open), so I an select "Mark as Unread"

    Snooze needs to be moved to the bottom of the menu, so it doesn't block other options or…

  12. British

    There should be an option for British Summer Time (BST) which is currently (UTC+01:00) but this option appears to be missing. Every 6 months I have to change the timezone which is an inconvenience as this could be done automatically.

  14. 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.

  16. highligh items

    You used to have a feature such that, when closing an email, that email would be highlighted. That was very useful in keeping track of your place when going through a list of emails. That feature is gone now. How about putting it back?

  17. [Dislike]:Image

    Please get rid of that woman's face when I open my outlook account. I don't know her and I don't want to see her face every day.

    Suggestion: make it an image of a letter, or a typewriter, or a group-shot of a multi-racial group of happy people, but not a single, life-size stranger working secretly in the night--creeps me out, every d. day..

  18. Return the "X"

    Return the "X" at the end of the header toolbar that returns to the open folder. Without it, once you open a message, you cannot return to that open folder!
