  2. "Folder Specific Rule" option on folders

    Add a button on folders that would allow us to create a "Folder Specific" rule which can be ran by right-clicking the folder that has a set Folder Specific rule then clicking "Run Rule". This would make rule setting easier to manage and run when a new rule is defined.

  3. Ads

    Dear Outlook.com,

    Personalized ads by IP address / location lookup has been turned off and disabled. Why am I still seeing local ads?

  8. Keep Sorting when navigating between folders

    When coming back to Inbox from another folder, the e-mails are no longer sorted by Sender, and revert back to default sorting by date. I want Outlook.com to remember how I want my messages sorted in each folder.

  11. Translation issue

    "Empty folder" button has a kinda incorrect translation for Portuguese (Brazilian). It's currently translated as "Pasta vazia" which denotes an state (the folder IS already empty) not an action (the folder WILL be emptied), I think it would be better as "Esvaziar pasta".

  14. Forwarding email needs simplified

    Re forwarding email - if an email is being sent to a separate person please make it a separate entry in the sent box, otherwise different emails with similar headings get lumped together in the same conversation.

  15. function to allow folder downloads

    In the future, it would be great for Hotmail to have a function in which a person can download or even transfer multiple emails at once instead of individually. (Such as hundreds of emails at a time or entire email folders).

  17. 'Message can't be displayed at the moment'

    Emails won't display in Hotmail. It says to check your internet connection or try again later. It has been like this for hours. I NEED to get to one email that was sent to me as it relates to a job. This is VERY annoying.

  20. MISSING EMAILS!!

    Missing emails from folders. I have several folders with emails sorted and suddenly all of the folders are empty. What happened? The recovery process makes it very difficult to identify which emails were in the folders.
