  1. Ad Banner

    The "It looks like you are using ad blocker" message to the side is going to make me look for a different email service, not be blackmailed into paying to keep my inbox free of things I do not want to see in it.

  2. Title: Navigating Through Mail

    Please provide a feature that allows one to skip the pinned-items section and go directly to the unpinned section. Scrolling there is cumbersome.

    Move message to folder as rule in firefox focus fumbling..

    As soon as I hit 'select folder' the option crashes!
    Other rule stuff I have not tested aside from a working 'set as read'.

  4. Date of receiving email

    I want the date that shows in the inbox to be the date and time I received the email, not the time I responded to the email

  5. Focus the cursor where I am instead of jumping to Message 1 after each deletion

    When I'm in my message list, say on message 43, and I delete it, the focus moves to message 1. So every time I delete a message I have to scroll down past all the messages I don't want to read to get the ones I do. Please focus the cursor on the next message where I already am. I DO really like the look much better than before. Very appealing, although the north-south line spacing is much taller than needed, in both the folder list and message list. It would be nice to fit more items on the page.…

  7. Can't see if email has an attachment

    Can't see whether the email has attachments or not unless I open it in a separate window. I don't consider this as an improvement.

  8. Love the new Beta format; some suggestions for you

    Thank you! I LOVE the new Outlook.com layout and features which surprises me as I normally detest changes, but after making a few tweaks, like removing the sender's colored circle on the left, I got it looking somewhat like the old format but with much better functionality on my Mac. I was frantic over the missing Undo button in the Inbox for when I delete an email by mistake, but then I realized that Command Z does exactly what the Undo button did! It brings back the deleted email! Yay! It might be good to include a reference to that…

  10. Want all folders available automatically (alphabetical) when moving email

    Can you please have all the folders available in the initial choice when we want to move an email to a particular folder? Just have it alphabetical

  11. squares to select emails for deletion or moving

    We should have squares to select emails for deletion or moving (like before). There are two reasons for this: 1) the convention is that circles are for radio buttons, while squares are for checkboxes. So the new layout is confusing. 2) The circles are HARDER TO CLICK because they have a smaller area than a square with the same width as the circle's diameter.

    So please change it back to CHECKBOXES to select things for deletion or moving, as before.

  12. removing the search function was a poor idea!

    It used to be easy to search for a name in a file of messages, but now there seems to be no way to do that.
    Worse, the help function doesn't work at all: you put in your question and click the button, but nothing happens. It would really be good it Microsoft ever bothered to test their changes (which are certainly not improvements!)

  13. email forwarding is broken. again.

    No matter what I do, this email address will no longer forward to another email address. VERY frustrating, and may lead to me no longer using it if this cannot be resolved.

  14. DELETE CONFUSING

    if you delete one message, the trashcan icon is in the second place,but when selecting more than one, the trashcan chages its position to the 1st. This is confusing and u can click by mistake the 2nd icon which can change into "file" instead of "delete".

  15. Add an alias even if it is a reserved domain

    You should be able to add an Alias even if it a "reserved domain". Many of my email addresses are reserved domians so I cannot centrally send from those addresses using Outlook.com. This is why I cannot make the switch from Gmail, they allow me to send from any alias addresses as long as I can prove ownership of that address.

  16. Sent Email Didn't Send Body

    Hi,
    Two different recipients told me the email I sent them didn't have a body. I will point out the emails to you if you would like. I sent the emails on my Windows 10 laptop using Chrome browser.

  17. When I block email from the junk file I can now only verify 2 addresses at a time. Please change it so I can verify many at one time.

    Please change it back to where I can verify many email addresses at one time before blocking. Not just 2.

  18. delete emails based on highlight

    In the previous version I could choose one file to delete. Delete that file. Then it would highlight the next email. From there on i could just hit the delete button and run though 10 emails or so without having to do anything other than hit the delete button.

  19. Password change linked with Skype

    Why do I need to change my hotmail password every time I use Skype? It is extremely frustrating because the process of password changing is too long.

  20. Saving/Closing a Draft version of an Email

    Problem: No X for closing an existing email draft. I regularly create draft emails in order to send the same thing to multiple recipients. I don't want to lose them as it takes a long time to create them. It's easier for me to copy & past the names of recipients to sent them out.
