  1. Forced me into changing my passwords

    I NEVER ENTERED the wrong password! For some reason it just wasn't being accepted.
    Then when I tried to log into my backup email contact on Outlook... it wouldn't accept my password for that account either!
    Why am I being FORCED into changing my passwords??? -Tim

  4. Not getting email from safe sender

    Not getting email from safe sender. I've added them as a contact, as a favorite, and have them in safe senders list yet I get no email from them. I know that they're sending it because my wife does get emails from this address and they have my email in the TO field.

  5. Density Rocks!

    You fixed the density of email issue! THANK YOU! Along the way a change added way too much space between emails, so we could only see 10 at most. After complaints, you listened and fixed it! Now we're double that and the product looks great! Thank you Microsoft.

  7. I liked the old draft page as I could alphabetize my files or arrange them in any format that I wished.

    I liked the old draft page as I could alphabetize my files or arrange them in any format that I wished. There are many things that I prefer in the classic format.

  8. Circle to delete emails is too close to area where you click to open the email.

    Trying to delete multiple emails is annoying. It's too easy to accidently click outside of the circle, opening an email. Once that happens, all of the emails you click on and have a check mark become unchecked and you have to do it again. Please give more space between the circle and the actual clickable email.

  9. Folders unread email counts do not update after reading emails.

    If I have some unread emails in my inbox, and then read them, the panel on the left still indicates there are unread emails. This seems to be a bug.

  10. Original message "automatically included" but not displayed

    Original message is not displayed to me while typing my reply (even in raw text mode). How am I supposed to even "reply" to it if I can't see it while so doing?

    Please give us the possibility to go back to the old version, as long as the new one has such defects...

  11. Help and Account buttons to sign out missing

    The Help and Account (used to sign out) buttons are off the computer screen in maximized window mode, and I have to restore down the window to find it!

  12. Connected Accounts Two Way Sync Back To Originating Mail Server

    Connected Accounts (Sync Email) should sync back to the originating mail server, especially when connected over IMAP. For instance, if linking a gmail or icloud account to Outlook.com, if the email is deleted in the Outlook.com app, it should delete it on gmail/icloud.

  14. Block option

    Could you please add the option "Block" by default for every email received?
    That's a very efficient way to fight spam

  15. Name Change Incomplete

    I have changed my name in my profile some time ago (soon to be a legal change), and it has not changed in all places. Eg. when receiving a group email, when you click to see who the email has been sent to, it shows the old name. This is a major privacy concern and needs to be dealt with.

  16. I'm tired of getting mail from senders I've already blocked.

    Every day I delete approx a dozen emails from CANADIAN PHARMACY from my Junk Mail but they keep arriving. Do you actually block them or am I just kidding myself?

  17. Subscription Management

    Relentless emails from multiple addresses from wanted and unsolicited sites. Like LINKEDIN is grouped, should there be better sorting, aggregation and filtering of email "Subscriptions"?

  19. Compose and Replies should be on a dark background in Dark Mode

    When composing an email, either reply or new, the background is white.
    This should not occur when on "Dark Mode".

    Additionally, when highlighting text when in Dark Mode, the background that would usually display when highlighting is transparent making it difficult to tell if the correct text is fully highlighted.

    Thanks for the love. We are working on defining the best way to make this happen. As you know, when we released Dark Mode, we said that it was going to be the best Dark Mode experience ever. We want to keep the bar super high, so this will take a little time. :)

  20. verification is a pain

    Why do I have to "verify" my account THREE times before I can send an email!!!!
    Twice to even get into the account and a third to send the email! Unfortunately, I entered the six digit number from where the text came from, then tried to reenter the four digit code, not realizing that it was now requesting a new phone number to send another code to. I tried reentering another phone number for a new code and it tells me that I have exceeded my attempts for verification and to try again tomorrow!!!
    I will never set up another…
