  1. "New message" button

    The new "New Message" button is too large and distracting. Please change it back to the older style with the + symbol - the button itself was not so distracting and large.

    Thanks

  2. "Empty Folder" appears in Inbox

    "Empty Folder" appears in Inbox and other folders after switching to junk folder and back. Browser has to be closed or one has to log out of account in order to restore normal toolbar.

  4. Block Sender

    You marked "completed" the "Block Sender" item that had over 1100 votes and many more comments. The solution you gave does not work when the email is already in the "Junk" email folder. Right clicking on items in the "Junk" folder opens the email. It does bring up the "Block" function, but still opens the email. Again, your solution addresses emails that are not already in the "Junk" folder. Please reopen this issue and give us a way to block emails without having to open them if they are already in the Junk folder based on your spam criteria. This…

  6. Deleted Items Folder - Mass vs Selective Delete of Items

    Deleted Items Folder - Need to be able to delete items by the page by clicking the Deleted Items button - available in previous version. New version selects all mail in Deleted Items folder to be deleted. I now have to select emails individually to delete - wasting my time.

  8. Select checkbox

    The Master checkbox used to only select what was on my screen, this made it easy for me to clear batches of email quickly. Now, the checkbox selects everything in a folder, even if I've not had a chance to see it. This is not helpful at all.

  9. Process customers hotmail rules before built-in junk mail filters

    This has been suggested, but has not been implemented. It's fine that you want to minimize junk by filtering it out to the junk folder, but this also prevents user rules from being effective. I want to DELETE any/all emails with keywords KETO or CBD. When you move them to the JUNK folder, it precludes my ability to delete. Don't override user's rules just because you process them first. Process user's rules, and if they aren't processed, THEN you can apply your built-in filters. PLEASE ACT ON THIS QUICKLY. It has been suggested long ago and is about time to…

  11. verify

    I cannot log onto outlook.com because it wants to verify who I am by texting me a pass code. I do not own a cellphone so cannot receive the code. Therefore I am locked out. All Microsoft online support could suggest is for me to go out and buy a cellphone. There has to be another way to verify. This issue also means I cannot send any emails using Microsoft Mail. Please fix issue.

  14. Dark mode makes it harder to discern read from unread emails at a glance.

    Dark mode makes it hard to see new emails. The text is blue and bold and the left side of the row has a blue marker but the whole row doesn't seem to change color.

    I'd like it to lighten up the whole row to make it more obvious which emails are new and unread.

  16. outlook bug

    the "new outlook" from web based outlook interface interprets lines with "CR" (carriage return) in the end differently than the "old outlook".

    The "old outlook" shows a new line for each "CR" while the "new outlook" doesn't, hence cause all contents of email body got concatenated and became a long line.

  17. Attaching a photo in an email message.

    In old Outlook we used to be able to move an attachment (photo) to the body of an email. I don't find that option in the new Outlook. Please bring it back.

  20. html signature

    Easily add a html signature in outlook.com and mobile outlook app so signature looks the same regardless of the device i'm using to send e-mail. Currently, I can only add a HTML e-mail in outlook desktop app.
