  1. Need name + email to go out without adding a contact each time

  2. Rules diagnostics reports unreadable

    Rules diagnostics reports are unreadable.
    txt files composed of html, when I open them they just don't help me understand what's wrong. How would code make sense to the majority of people trying to read this information and trying to figure out what's going on with the rules that don't work. You need to change the reports and make them readable by everyone.

  3. Outlook 365 (2016) New Email, Dictate Inserts Trailing Space in To:, Cc:, and Bcc: No Auto-complete

    Hello everyone I am speaking for the Visually Impaired currently using Narrator and Dictate to create a new email.

    Steps to recreate the problem:


    1. Run Outlook 365 (2016).

    2. Click New Email (by default the caret is in the To: field).

    3. Click Dictate.

    4. Say a person's first name that you know should be in your autocomplete list (autocomplete list does not show therefore Narrator doesn't recite the list of choices).

    5. Hit the backspace key on the keyboard and the autocomplete list will show and Narrator recites the list.

    For my test I used my first name Larry. Dictate inserted "Larry "…

  6. Wrong year!

    Mails show /18 as year instead of /19 in the email header date. That's crazy.

  9. Tell them were do not exist!

    Tell them were do not exist!

    When I get email spoofing the sender I would like the option, from Microsoft, to return a message that looks as if Microsoft sent it, and which says the acct is invalid or has been closed. Htat is likely the only way I will get these people to stop emailing me from alternative spoofed addresses with the same message and from the same people. We need a tool to use to stop them in return.

  10. Please don't just add new stuff to my mail. It works just fine before you added.

    All of a sudden I see a pop up screen on the lower part of my email screen telling me how many items I deleted. I do not need this and it is a distraction.

  12. Violation. Microsoft putting unauthorized names on email addresses and accounts.

    I log into hotmail with my primary alias, and after 2 days and error messages to cust service, the account icon in the upper right corner still shows the icon for a secondary alias. When I go into settings, the account name is correct, but the wrong icon is showing in the corner of the email/inbox page. Please fix your system. Stop guessing at and using names that the customer didn't authorize for the email account.

  16. Large File in drag & drop

    When we drag file which is larger then 33 md it shows an error, Instead it should show a option to continue with one drive (to save the time of repeating the process with attach file option), same as we Attach larger files through Attach Option.

  17. Negating email rules

    Inbox rules do not allow negation, what if I want to forward most email but NOT if the sender address is x. Being able to negate a rule is a must have.
