  1. Note

    Ability to see a note when hovering over email with the mouse (like in Excel).

    Please create the very simplistic ability of note that the user can have the ability to see in the Focused Inbox when hovering over the email with the mouse without having to set a reminder, open the email, set a new custom category, go to the notes page etc.

    I miss the possibility to create an absence callendar, for instance for the whole year. So that every holiday or weekend is saved and that absence messages are automatically activated.

  5. Editing draft emails

    Sometimes when I re-open a draft email to edit it, the 'Edit' icon appears in the top left corner. If I forget to click on this icon, the email disappears as soon as I start editing. BUT at other times when I re-open a draft email to edit it, there is no 'Edit' icon and I can immediately start editing. This is very confusing and I don't understand why the 'Edit' icon sometimes appears and sometimes doesn't appear. I also don't understand what is the purpose of the 'Edit' icon, as the only reason for saving a draft and then…

  7. Include an option for borders in outgoing emails

    It would be nice to have an option of making an outgoing email look like it was typed on decorative stationery. Possibly just include an option for a border around the content of the email.

  10. (ISSUE) Erratic Double Click Behaviour on Messages

    My Outlook Web has been setup in compact view without message preview.

    Whenever I double click on a message to open it on a new window, sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't.

    Could you please fix that issue and make it more consistent?

    I'd like to open new messages on a new window and I'd like my Double Clicks to be predictably registered all the time.

    What happens instead is that whenever I double click on a message, it rarely opens on a new window (most of the times it opens the message in the same messages list).

    Thanks.

  12. I miss the trophy for a clean inbox.

    I miss the trophy that would show up in your inbox when it had no messages. Can you bring it back? It always made me so happy.

  14. GET RID OF FOUCUSED INBOX

    The Focused Inbox is Probably the worst so called "Improvement" to Outlook. So many things to fix, why waste time on features no one wants. Please don't say you can switch it off.. as it continually comes back to life after updates, and before I notice I've missed important E-mail because the Focus algorithm thinks it's not important. At least leave it off by default, every time I re-install or work on anther PC, I have switch it off on every version of outlook.

  15. Title - my TAHOMA default font

    I have set my basic composing font as TAHOMA. However, when I am using your app that allows me to number my paragraphs/sentences, Outlook does not go back to the TAHOMA font but goes to some other font depending how it feels that day. I want TAHOMA 24/7 as the default!! Thanks.

  17. Add SharePoint sites to attachment list on outlook.com

    When you use the desktop version of outlook, you can add files that have been saved on a SharePoint site (by browsing or most recent files). On outlook web version this is very limited and there is not the option to either add SharePoint sites or browse to a SharePoint site in your tenancy for attachments. It would be good to add this function

  18. Delete all but last message from sender

    Subject: Managing Messages

    I enjoy getting updates via email messages, but some companies dump updates on you a few times a week!! All I want to see is the last update.
    It would greatly help if there was a rule or such that would delete all messages from a defined sender, except the last message sent. That would save so much maintenance!
    Another instance would be when ordering food from an online supermarket: each time I add things to the grocery list, I get sent a message. I only need to see the last one.
    To match other needs, perhaps…

  19. Filter dropdown should be where the 'Customize' link is located.

    I just found 'Filter' again. You might consider putting it where Customize is located as that is the list that you are either Sorting or Filtering.

  20. Auto-resizing of tables is bonkers

    As is common for mobile mail apps, the Outlook "app" on Android totally destroys carefully chosen formatting of HTML.

    In addition to the usual unnecessary and silly resizing of fonts, alterations of element widths, and other shenanigans, the tables are resized stupidly.

    In particular, you seem to auto-resize all aspects of the table so as to fit the table to a certain width. However, this seems to fail when a table contains a table; the inner table gets auto-resized twice, making it WAY too small.

    Can't you guys just render the darn email as specified? Quit trying to be so…
