  1. Delete Button in Email Subject Header

    Delete button too close to unread button in the email subject header in the Inbox. I keep accidentally deleting emails when trying to mark the email as unread. Put it next to the pin button instead or leave a space.

  2. Infinite Loop when using Firefox

    Firefox prompts me to "stop running scripts". CPU starts working like crazy. This happens upon opening outlook.com.

    Using Firefox 65.0.1 (64-bit) on Ubuntu.

  5. Too many emails telling me you've moved my clutter

    Please stop sending so many emails about moving things to clutter. I know it's there and I love that you separate it out. But now the emails telling me about moving my clutter are becoming a big source of clutter. Thanks!

  7. Reply Suggestions

    Reply suggestions are not showing up in a new message window. Would be helpful if they even show up when the message is opened in separate window.

  9. End this email separation ****!!!

    I need a workaround on MS separation of my emails into two (or more categories). This is dysfunctional for me as a user. I don't want emails separated for unknown and unknowable reasons by your algorithm which seems to change daily. The separated emails cannot be scrolled through, and this takes times I would rather not spend when checking my email.

  10. finished button for group of emails like inbox by google

    A finished button like inbox by google, i would also like to sort by sender and then be able to group it and uncollapse all emails so you just have senders showing, rather than 500 emails where 200 are from one adress, so you can move that group of emails or make rules for them

  12. Error in messages sent to me blocking me from updating my password, or finding the current password.

    I tried to open two accounts for my parents for them to get their ancestry DNA information. I will be the manager of both accounts, since they are in the 80s. I got my father's done quick and easy, then made a mistake after getting the account set up for my mom as was creating her password. It told me to get the password, I need to know information about the last email I sent on the account. PROBLEM - No emails were ever send from this account, since I was in the middle of creating it. How can I…

  14. Bcc

    Why oh why doesn't Outlook HELP explain BCC - ie a proper explanation by Microsoft, instead of my having to wade through queries raised by other people - which may or may not have been answered.

  15. The line "to:" get deleted if you switch between emails.

    If you tab between 2 emails like one in your folder sended and your open new email and you entered the email adresse where the new email have to go, it will become empty if you tab back to the old email (as example, you wanna copy the content but send to a other person with little changes) and then back to the new, the field "to:" is always empty if you switch between emails.

  16. Breaking change to emails sent from gmail

    Outlook adding a newline after first word in each paragraph in emails sent from Gmail via copy/paste from google doc. Worked perfectly fine for the last 2 years. Is not a google change as previously sent emails are showing this odd formatting now.

  17. BUG: shift+down causes error - must refresh page

    -navigate to junk mail with multiple messages
    -select first item
    -hold shift+down and select multiple items (but now all), then use delete key
    -hold shift+down again begin to select more

    Expected: first item is selected, and more get selected as you hit down
    Actual: page breaks - "Something Went Wrong" error "There was something that went wrong with the application"...

    This breaks a normal work flow of reading junk mail titles, deleting, and then selecting more. Work around is to manually (mouse click) select the first item before continuing, this should not be necessary.

  18. Annoying

    The vertical scrollbar in the inbox seems sometimes to be intertvined with the mail underneath, symptom: I click a few times under the "blob" in the scrollbar to scroll down, about the third or fourth time my click seems to click the mail residing on that position in the inbox-list, anoying! The clickable mail-link seems to extent to far to the right.

  20. Request: In-line Images Issue

    In-line image issue.

    To Whom It May Concern:

    A few months ago, I noticed that when I view Rockler and Woodworkers Journal messages on my computer I am not able to see some or all of the images and in some cases, no URL link(s). However, viewed on my mobile, the images are inline with the message (readable). I do not have these issues with other messages. Also, if I forward the messages to a Gmail account, the messages have all of the images and data (good).

    I've searched on-line and reached out to the sender's for a solution but…
