  2. No shortage of Outlook malfunctions.

    Just got this error when trying to access email: "The custom error module does not recognize this error." Outlook is just getting more unusable every week.

  3. mail Folders

    We can no longer move one email folder into another folder. It is nice to be able to group 'child' folders with similar content within a 'parent' folder. Please restore that capability.

  4. Outlook Is Shifting The Entire Page To The Left

    Outlook keeps shifting the whole page to the left on all browsers periodically. So the whole page is blank, except for a one inch column on the far left. This started happening yesterday 11/24/2018. I regularly use Edge browser, but it happens on Firefox and Chrome. It did this one time on Saturday for about 30 minutes, and than performed without problems the rest of the day. Now it's been constantly doing the page shift for the last 45 minutes.

  5. Thanks for bringing "Sweep" back!!

    Thanks so much for adding the "Sweep" feature back and allowing users to sweep into deleted items or folders of their choice. That feature is absolutely the single most use feature for me and I loved it when Outlook launched in 2012. I'm so glad you brought it back.

  7. There is no easy way to get the @ sign when using outlook.live.com

    [Mac OS][Chrome] Alt + Q (to get the @ sign) doesn't work, instead it activates the Outlook search bar (i.e. not the browser search bar).

  10. Account access is a nightmare through Tor or VPNs

    Stop blocking access to my accounts and forcing me to change passwords just because I'm using Tor or a VPN. Provide an option to disable this 'protection'.

    I get it, all those different IPs accessing my account from all over the world look suspicious. They are all me. Being forced to change my password every couple of days is just infuriating.

  15. Password protect a folder

    Dear Outlook team,
    It would be enormously helpful if one folder had the ability to password protect in order to gain access to the specific folder. If the email was hacked, having sensitive messages protected in a certain folder with a different password from the login, would help secure sensitive information.
    Please add this to the next edit.
    Sincerely,
    Robert Phillips

  16. Why haven't you removed the beta switch from the top of my email yet? It's way too easy to accidently turn it off.

    Why haven't you removed the beta switch from the top of my email page yet? It's way too easy to accidently turn it off. You've already removed it from a different email address several months ago. The newer (beta) version runs MUCH faster than the older version. Please get the beta switch off of my email page.

  17. OUTLOOK ONLINE BROKEN - YET AGAIN

    ALL OF A SUDDEN, OUTLOOK ONLINE DISPLAYS BOTH AN EMPTY READING PANE AND AN EMPTY MESSED UP INBOX PANE WHEN THE USER ATTEMPTS TO READ CERTAIN - BUT NOT ALL - HTML EMAILS.

    WHAT THE **** IS WRONG WITH YOU ARROGANT GENIUSES?

    YOU TEST NOTHING BEFORE DUMPING IT ON CUSTOMERS, BLATHERING ABOUT "TELEMETRY, TELEMETRY, TELEMETRY." TELEMETRY IS NOT TESTING. GO FLY ON AN AIRPLANE THAT WASN'T TESTED, BUT OH IT HAS "TELEMETRY." MAYBE SOMEONE WILL SEND FLOWERS.

  18. 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.
