  2. Default Font for Outlook 365 Notes Within Contacts

    In Outlook 365, it is not currently possible to change the default font and size in the 'notes section' in Outlook contacts. Would it be possible for you to change this in future updates so that all the information is in the same default chosen font for every contact?

  3. Outlook.com servers ignores new IP address of my own server

    In the last days of March, my mail server IP has been changed, due to changing Internet provider. Till now outlook.com tries to send emails from own users to my old IP address, completly ignoring DNS system. In those situation my clients cannot recieve mails from theirs partners wich are using outlook.com.

  5. .ost file to .pst file conversion

    Microsoft needs to develop a free program / tool to allow customers to convert .OST files to .PST files without having to download 3rd party software. I paid for Office Home & Business 2019 so I could have access to my current and saved email on my new laptop, but lost 75% of my saved email when it was installed. Used a free 3rd party software program to convert the .OST file, and now have about 80% of my saved email, but still lost quite a bit of needed information.

  6. What reason is there to stay?

    Why shouldn't I close out my account? After a long time of issues (interface, not truly able to stop emails from going to junk, not truly able to keep junk, phishing, etc. out of the inbox), can Microsoft give me any reasons at all to stay? This is feedback with the hope of getting a response ... someday.

  7. Recurring Out of Office

    It will be great to be able to setup recurring out of office for auto replies on a particular day of the week as some of the staff members don't work everyday.

  8. login from other computers

    Secondary authentication could be waived across platforms such as outlook for your own personal equipment, as listed in the Microsoft account. Then automatically use secondary authentication when accessing the account from any alternate ip address not listed. Many credit card companies do this already.

  11. Quick filter for folders

    It would be very nice to have a quick filter on top of the folder list. Like, while you type the characters, the folders matching them are displayed as search results. Scrolling through all the list is tiring... :(

  12. Need an ability to merge Microsoft accounts

    There should be an ability to merge 2 accounts into one and make the other one as alias. I have both @hotmail.com & @outlook.com accounts. I want to merge those accounts and make hotmail account as an alias to outlook.com account.

  13. 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.

  14. I don't want "News" picked by Microsoft shoved at me!

    "News" just popped up as a folder on Outlook. It cannot be eliminated from the folder list. When I try to de-select each of the default type news categories, an error window says it cannot be done now, but this refusal to de-select has been going on for 3 days ever since "News" first appeared.

    I don't want Microsoft shoving news it picks at me.

  16. 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!!!

  17. edge linux

    When you open the website on Firefox for Linux, you still get the suggestion that Outlook on Edge is fantastic. I know it is, but Edge is not available on Linux (yet).

    Could you please filter unavailable OS's from you suggestion?

  18. Language and date/time combinations

    Should be possible to choose English display language whilst also using local/regional (e.g. Norwegian) date/time settings. The only way to choose date format "24.03.2020" and time format "15:08" is by having language set to Norwegian, which I do not want because I'm weird. Thanks.

  20. 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.
