  1. Outlook.live.com Mail App/Service Launcher Justification/Spacing/Color Feedback

    Hi, Outlook.com continues to push forward the "Fluent Design" style nicely.

    I have a comment about the change to the App Launcher on Outlook.com

    The new change, while I can understand that the Panel width is the same as the Mail Topic Panel, and is Top Justified Center makes some degree of logical sense, it dosn't make the most visual sense.

    A clean look with a Tile layout with no room other than the border gutter between tiles, and Top Left Corner Justified makes more sense visually to me and is what I have come to expect an praise from…

  2. Please don't just add new stuff to my mail. It works just fine before you added.

    All of a sudden I see a pop up screen on the lower part of my email screen telling me how many items I deleted. I do not need this and it is a distraction.

  4. Contact box

    Adding contacts - is there a way to move the box over when adding a new contact? While in an existing email and I click on the round initial a box pops up where I can ADD or EDIT a contact, but I can't move that box and that would be SO helpful so I could see what I need to enter form the email signature I'm looking at. HELP!!!! :-)

  5. Violation. Microsoft putting unauthorized names on email addresses and accounts.

    I log into hotmail with my primary alias, and after 2 days and error messages to cust service, the account icon in the upper right corner still shows the icon for a secondary alias. When I go into settings, the account name is correct, but the wrong icon is showing in the corner of the email/inbox page. Please fix your system. Stop guessing at and using names that the customer didn't authorize for the email account.

  9. Accented Characters in eMail address

    I'd like to create an email alias using my Irish name - Pádraig Ó Fuarain; but you don't except accented letters in email addresses; is this a feature you are ever going to support.

    I'm and MS FTE (pforan@microsoft.com) and this is actually a customer provided feedback from Adobe Sign that I'm testing - thanks in advance for responding.

  12. Large File in drag & drop

    When we drag file which is larger then 33 md it shows an error, Instead it should show a option to continue with one drive (to save the time of repeating the process with attach file option), same as we Attach larger files through Attach Option.

  13. Negating email rules

    Inbox rules do not allow negation, what if I want to forward most email but NOT if the sender address is x. Being able to negate a rule is a must have.

  16. AutoFormat - option to disable.

    When I type a hyphen then a space (like '- ' when I manually type my signature, "- Ben") then it automatically formats it into a bullet list which I don't want.

    If this was Word then there's a small pop-up with an option to disable AutoFormat. Could we not have this in Outlook too?

  18. Selecting text is broken

    Copy n paste is broken. If you hold ctrl and shift down, then cursor left and right, it moves from word to word rather than selecting the words.
