  1. Email message create rule pop up, support the To address of the actual email

    Add option to create a rule based on To address of the email I right clicked on (currently this only works from From, there's no reason not to populate based on the To as well)

  2. Junk Mail Preview Pane Can't Be Disabled

    Junk Mail Preview Pane Can't Be Disabled so when you want to click on the email and block it - you can't prevent it from being viewed
    absolutely ridiculous!!!

    there response...

    "Since, the feature that you are looking for is only available with the option getting applied for the entire mailbox and not only for Junk folder. Meanwhile, I will share your feedback with our superiors and I encourage you to post this feedback on our User Voice page: https://outlook.uservoice.com/forums/601444 so others can vote on your idea and add some extra voices to the request.

    Hope you understand the situation…

    Add the social and news filter to the filter again.

  5. Translate large files as Onedrive links

    When a message containing a file is sent. I’d like Outlook to queue the file upload to my Onedrive account and send the recipient a token link verifying them for a time period to download that file.

    This would allow me to send big files, regardless of type. I’m aware that I can already manually share resources and link to them. I’d like an improvement to the user experience workflow.
    Handing off the details of how the file should be hosted to an Outlook setting for online file hosting preference.

  7. Forwarding email exclusion list

    Email Forwarding needs a exclusion list based on contacts. I only need a few contacts's emails to be excluded from the auto forwarding. Instead of creating rules for each contact let the email forwarding work like currently in the web, but there's an additional list for adding contacts. Contacts on this list will not have their emails be auto forwarded.
    Example, I have forwarding enabled to forward emails to my coworker. I have contacts that may send sensitive emails I do not want to be forwarded to my coworker. I don't want to turn off email forwarding and have to…

  10. Unblockable Spam emails.

    Spam emails being spoofed as not having proper email syntax (i.e., not *.com or *.net), thus making them impossible to block.

  11. I want to send or forward an email from outlook to a mobile phone.

    This would include attachments to the email if possible. The email would be converted to a text message and sent to the mobile phone or other device that gets text messages. Texting messages from mobile devices to Outlook would also be useful.

  12. Online outlook unsafe and usable with uneditable connected accounts email sync

    Please allow modification of outlook online to leave a copy on the server, when managing email synchronisation with connected accounts. Currently greyed out if unchecked... This lack of control makes online outlook unsafe and unusable with multiple connected email accounts !

  14. Unwanted feature, no choice?

    Hi, I am being forced to use 2 step verification? Is there another service that I can use while applying for jobs that does not force me to use this?

  15. window too small bc "ad blocker" message

    email window too small due to MS "ad blocker" message eating up about 3 lines of message space so that i can only see 5 messages, I'M NOT USING AN AD BLOCKER! And changing display size will make all other things on computer too small to see. I have to buy the whole Office 365 suite to stop this? Gmail here i come before too long.

  16. Process customers hotmail rules before built-in junk mail filters

    This has been suggested, but has not been implemented. It's fine that you want to minimize junk by filtering it out to the junk folder, but this also prevents user rules from being effective. I want to DELETE any/all emails with keywords KETO or CBD. When you move them to the JUNK folder, it precludes my ability to delete. Don't override user's rules just because you process them first. Process user's rules, and if they aren't processed, THEN you can apply your built-in filters. PLEASE ACT ON THIS QUICKLY. It has been suggested long ago and is about time to…

  17. Rules

    There has got to be an easier way to maneuver 'rules'...I believe before the transition to the outlook format, you could sort/search rules, which is way easier. You should also be able in the options of an e-mail to see if there's a rule associated with it. I've been trying to resolve a rule from my volleyball league - because there are various 'no reply' addresses, I have to click on the edit function. Unfortunately, there's no 'cancel' option, only a save or discard. When I click on discard, it takes be back to the top of the darn list,…

  18. Double click to expand or colapse a folder

    Double click to expand or colapse folders. It's too much easy click at the folder's name than the arrow at side.

  19. Stop leaking Primary address when sending from Alias

    Remove Primary email address from the email headers when sending from a verified Alias. This leak of information removes most of the reason for having an Alias in the first place.
