  1. Folders, when collapsed can hide important emails in child folders

    If you have a folder with several child folders where email gets auto-sorted into the child folder, it's extremely easy to miss this new/important emails if the parent folder in the left panel gets collapsed (which happens automatically if you enter outlook's web app through the app launcher) because the parent folder has ZERO indication that any of the folders nested within it have received any emails, while the hidden child folder entries do.

    I've missed several important time-sensitive emails as a result of parent folders getting collapsed without being noticed.

  2. Show/Hide Email Addresses

    Make on option to show/hide the sender's full email address below their name without having to open the message.

    Add a toggle switch that will show/hide the full email addresses. Having to mouse-over a contact and wait a second or two to view the alt text is no good.

  3. Include an option for borders in outgoing emails

    It would be nice to have an option of making an outgoing email look like it was typed on decorative stationery. Possibly just include an option for a border around the content of the email.

  4. default is to print emails in color

    The default print option is to print in color and CANNOT be changed! That is ridiculous! Can I send microsoft my bill for the extra color copies I keep printing out?!

  6. GET RID OF FOUCUSED INBOX

    The Focused Inbox is Probably the worst so called "Improvement" to Outlook. So many things to fix, why waste time on features no one wants. Please don't say you can switch it off.. as it continually comes back to life after updates, and before I notice I've missed important E-mail because the Focus algorithm thinks it's not important. At least leave it off by default, every time I re-install or work on anther PC, I have switch it off on every version of outlook.

  8. Add SharePoint sites to attachment list on outlook.com

    When you use the desktop version of outlook, you can add files that have been saved on a SharePoint site (by browsing or most recent files). On outlook web version this is very limited and there is not the option to either add SharePoint sites or browse to a SharePoint site in your tenancy for attachments. It would be good to add this function

  9. Delete all but last message from sender

    Subject: Managing Messages

    I enjoy getting updates via email messages, but some companies dump updates on you a few times a week!! All I want to see is the last update.
    It would greatly help if there was a rule or such that would delete all messages from a defined sender, except the last message sent. That would save so much maintenance!
    Another instance would be when ordering food from an online supermarket: each time I add things to the grocery list, I get sent a message. I only need to see the last one.
    To match other needs, perhaps…

  10. Hate where snoozed is located

    Why did you put the snoozed option where you did? Could you put it somewhere else? I've been using hotmail for over 20 years and now I have to get used to snooze being where mark unread is and it's driving me nuts especially if I'm not fast enough to get past the snooze it automatically brings up the whole snooze ****!

  15. 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…

  16. mute forwarding nofication for a set time

    Everytime I log into my office 365 account to use my mailbox, I get an annoying notification that reminds me, that i am forwarding my emails to another adress. I know, I do this on purpose. I forward them to an account that I check more frequently (and keep a copy), so that I don't miss an important mail. Why is it not possible to tell the notification to "don't show again" or at least "mute for 3 months"?

  17. One or more free e-mail domains

    Outlook is the best mail service in my opinion. But only two e-mail domains "outlook" and "hotmail." It would be good to add one or more free domains. It would make possible for more people to choose their real names as an e-mail usernames. And more people would migrate from other services to Outlook when they are searching for professional free e-mail username

  18. Please move "Delete" & "Empty" buttons...

    Please move the "Empty Folder" & "Delete" icons further away from other buttons. It's too easy to tap that where it is.

  19. Files TAB in Outlook Web Mail

    Hello,
    The files tab at left bottom of the screen on Outlook Web, near mail,calendar,people is keeping a history of attachments from emails received or sent,even if you deleted all traces of those emails.
    On the same tab,it tracks a history of people you had contact with,and when you click them,shows a history of attachments received or sent,even if those emails were deleted from everywhere.
    After speaking with support,it seems they are stored somewhere in some cloud.
    I find this a huge privacy problem,for Outlook to keep traces of deleted emails attachments and persons you had contact with stored and…

  20. Generating special passwords from user account in order to add email to Outlook

    Adding emails like yahoo and Aol cannot be done using the 'add an account' on Outlook without going to the yahoo or aol user account and generating a password from the account. The user account sign in password will not work with 'add an account' like it will with gmail. . Could not find that information anywhere on Outlook or any site I reviewed.
