  4. Is biggest problem with sync email of other account. exam

    outlook.com has problem with sync email of other account. example if you added your business email . when some one send you email then it take 30/40 mints to show in outlook.com. should be a option where we can set sync timing as thunderbird/ outlook2016 desktop. Without sync correctly it not useful for business email..in working hours not possible to wait for a email 30 mints.

  5. Reading Pane Issues

    Here are a list of Issues tested on both Mac (Safari) and Windows (IE):

    - Unable to reduce the Inbox Pane (second pane) below a certain size, which would result in the Reading Pane being too small. (Previously, there was more flexibility in adjusting the various panes to make a larger Reading Pane)

    - Advertisement on the right is taking up too much space, which adds to the problem of the small Reading Pane

    - Reading pane is now auto shrinking email messages to fit, making messages too small to read. (Previously, it does not, and simply allows for horizontal…

  7. 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. Printing emails is poor, printing partials is impossible.

    Printing emails is such a huge problem for so many people but they have all written separate complaints so each one only has a few votes. In total there are MANY unhappy people. Please, moderator, be aware of this and don't ignore this issue just because it does not appear, at cursory view, to have a lot of votes. Bring back a text clippable and picture snippable print preview showing all addresses and listing all attachments. People - no matter what your specific Print problem is, Vote for this entry.

  12. Please provide option to STOP automatic bulleting

    I'm tired of this assuming that I want bulleting/formatting when I create my emails. Please provide a way to turn OFF or STOP automatic bulleting.

  14. Apply rules after a time period

    Apply rules after a time period (option in rules and sweep)...
    The simple ability to apply a rule after a time period or time after marked as read. This means that I have the opportunity to see messages in the inbox before a rule is applied.

  15. dlp policy

    It would be fantastic if we could get mail policy tip warnings in IOS Outlook so that they can be overridden when sending mail on the go to external addresses. Currently there is no way to override DLP policies on the mobiles.

  16. Change it back so that email replies originate with the email address the email was received to.

    I have two accounts that I use from my main hotmail account. Whenever I reply to emails received to my secondary account, I have to change the "From" email address back to my secondary email EVERY TIME, when it used to automatically use the address that the email was originally sent to. It's very annoying, and wastes a lot of my time, and is confusing for my clients when they are getting emails from my main personal account, instead of my work secondary account.

  18. Can't add new people when replying to email

    I wanted to reply to a friend and add a new contact. I click TO: and get an insanely long list of contacts that I'd have to scroll through. Usually, you type the first letter of the person's email address or name and you'd jump to that part of the contacts list, but my new person doesn't appear. This beta version is terrible. The interface is too busy with ridiculous "charms" and icons. I can't find messages. The calendar is a disaster. I have reverted back to the "classic" view. Why can't the developers leave well enough alone? Why do…

  20. move the flag status column to the far left

    The flag status column should be moveable. I want that to be the first column on the left, not the last column on the right. It makes no sense to have the flag status column on the far right. Flagging an item is for the purpose of making it stand out as special and since we read from left to right, the eye automatically looks on the left side of the screen, not the right.
