  1. Error in messages sent to me blocking me from updating my password, or finding the current password.

    I tried to open two accounts for my parents for them to get their ancestry DNA information. I will be the manager of both accounts, since they are in the 80s. I got my father's done quick and easy, then made a mistake after getting the account set up for my mom as was creating her password. It told me to get the password, I need to know information about the last email I sent on the account. PROBLEM - No emails were ever send from this account, since I was in the middle of creating it. How can I…

  2. Email error message ****

    Regarding email error messages (mx ones, couldn't deliver etc) PLEASE STOP SENDING ME THE FULL DEAD-SEA-SCROLLS AD-INFINITUM VERSION OF THE ERROR.... a quick error message will suffice! The best option would be something like "Couldn't deliver to "erik@chips.com" for x reason. Click here for details". Thanks

  4. Custom Light off

    The light off function should work per e-mail domain. The user can then customize which e-mails are dark and which light.

  6. Bcc

    Why oh why doesn't Outlook HELP explain BCC - ie a proper explanation by Microsoft, instead of my having to wade through queries raised by other people - which may or may not have been answered.

  7. VPN and inline images in email

    Use of VPN and inserting inline photos. I was having a big headache inserting inline photos into an Outlook email. Images were taking forever to appear, if they did at all. Using the Opera browser with it's VPN service turned on. Turned off the VPN, and images would insert and appear right away.

  8. Problems pasting images into Outlook emails

    Pasting pictures into an email is a massive time sucking nightmare in Outlook online. Images take *forever* to insert, delete, send. "Please try again later" messages.

  9. The line "to:" get deleted if you switch between emails.

    If you tab between 2 emails like one in your folder sended and your open new email and you entered the email adresse where the new email have to go, it will become empty if you tab back to the old email (as example, you wanna copy the content but send to a other person with little changes) and then back to the new, the field "to:" is always empty if you switch between emails.

  10. Breaking change to emails sent from gmail

    Outlook adding a newline after first word in each paragraph in emails sent from Gmail via copy/paste from google doc. Worked perfectly fine for the last 2 years. Is not a google change as previously sent emails are showing this odd formatting now.

  13. BUG: shift+down causes error - must refresh page

    -navigate to junk mail with multiple messages
    -select first item
    -hold shift+down and select multiple items (but now all), then use delete key
    -hold shift+down again begin to select more

    Expected: first item is selected, and more get selected as you hit down
    Actual: page breaks - "Something Went Wrong" error "There was something that went wrong with the application"...

    This breaks a normal work flow of reading junk mail titles, deleting, and then selecting more. Work around is to manually (mouse click) select the first item before continuing, this should not be necessary.

  14. Annoying

    The vertical scrollbar in the inbox seems sometimes to be intertvined with the mail underneath, symptom: I click a few times under the "blob" in the scrollbar to scroll down, about the third or fourth time my click seems to click the mail residing on that position in the inbox-list, anoying! The clickable mail-link seems to extent to far to the right.

  16. Request: In-line Images Issue

    In-line image issue.

    To Whom It May Concern:

    A few months ago, I noticed that when I view Rockler and Woodworkers Journal messages on my computer I am not able to see some or all of the images and in some cases, no URL link(s). However, viewed on my mobile, the images are inline with the message (readable). I do not have these issues with other messages. Also, if I forward the messages to a Gmail account, the messages have all of the images and data (good).

    I've searched on-line and reached out to the sender's for a solution but…

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

    Please allow First_Name Last_Name <first_name.last_name@whatever.com> . Format might differ but we should be able to email a name and an address in <>. This is no longer possible on outlook.com. Thank you.

  18. 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.

  19. Unnecessary email blocking / master Microsoft blacklist

  20. 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…
