  2. Auto-categorizing IMAP mail

    I only use one account with Outlook.com, it is my gmail. Outlook.com is automatically labeling every message with a category of "myemailaddress@gmail.com".

    Could you please allow me to stop this behavior with an option?

    The problem is that this label takes up a lot of real-estate in the mailbox. Instead of seeing information about my message, I just see this label "myemailaddress@gmail.com" repeated over and over on every message in a bold color. I don't need to know that, and it is wasting some valuable space that could instead be giving me more message preview information.

  5. password mechanism needs to be simpler

    password mechanism is frustrating because it obliges me to change my password regularly whilst I would like to remember it otherwise my family won't purchase a computer for the next 100 years.

  7. Email Problem

    I got an email from Paypal, but it's way too small to read. All other emails are fine. Also, why don't you explain anything? What is "Other" and "Focused" mail? You're too confusing here.

  8. Outook Doesn't sync between devices

    All changes I make in my mobile device doesn't appear on my pc outlook. For instance, if I move mail into specific folders that relate to the email on my mobile device and then I log onto my laptop, they are all still in my inbox. Even the deleted emails.

  9. It is rotten, ROTTEN

    The outlook square thing on the left does not work anymore, it does not give me access for new contacts, or for anything that is on the square on the left on the blue line.

  14. mailbox challenge?

    I find your password mechanism difficult to remember, so this discourages me from enabling two factor authentication [Stockholm syndrome].

    your interface disables using simple passwords and passwords used in the past [rules that I hope you will disable if I accept a simple password or alternative ways to authenticate without a password as the password recovery process is lengthy and painstaking and has a negative impact on my mental health].

    I use email for regular correspondence including tons of e-newsletters and requests from recruiters, so it is a commonly used communication tool, hoping that when I have a profit-making use…

  16. OWA beta mode - replying HTML e-mails in plain text

    Whenever I configure OWA in beta mode (which is awesome, by the way) for composing e-mails in plain text and I reply to an e-mail which was sent in HTML, OWA doesn't convert the original e-mail to text and instead completely removes it from the reply. This is annoying and should be fixed IMHO.

  17. New email is horrible for visually impaired. We shouldn't be forced into purchasing "ad free" just to read our emails.

    So, for me, being visually impaired, you are forcing me to sign up and pay for 'Ad Free' email??? That is just wrong. I am disabled on a small monthly stipend, hearing and visually impaired, but you want a percentage of my meager income to get my email. Shame on you. Judith Gregory

  18. This should not be a field to fill in or it won't Submit-- but unless to enter something here -not obvious u should- it won't Submit!!!

    The Print/Cancel screen SHOULD disappear after you print but it doesn't- it keeps reappearing when you try to see other emails! You have to hit Cancel after you print or it won't go away. The Cancel button should be only to cancel printing, I would think...

  19. Move the send button a bit to the right (vs. right under the reply button)

    Move the send button over a bit to the right (to reduce accidental sends). I may have an itchy trigger finger but with the new layout, I find that once I hit reply, I'm often accidentally sending blank emails to people because the Send button is right on top of where the Reply button was. If you move it right just a bit, I won't have this continue to happen. I welcome other solutions but this seems like a decent starting place. Thanks!
