  1. Forward and Archive Outlook's Copy

    When I enable forwarding, I can "keep a copy of forwarded messages", but that keeps them in the inbox. I'd rather that they get archived.

  5. Empty Folder vs. Delete

    Empty folder button is annoying. I prefer "Delete" it's universal for all folders. I can't stand how the buttons move at the top. I'm eyeing the delete button 2nd position from left, then select all and the delete button disappears, and Empty folder Appears in the 1st position on the left.. Who designed this garbage? Just use delete and leave it in ONE position and stop moving and shifting it around. Pathetic design.

  7. See recipient in subfolder of sent items

    See recipient in subfolder of sent items.
    When I move emails to subfolders under Sent Items, the emails are only presented with my name. In the main, sent items directory, I can see the actual recipient.

  8. Menu

    Is there any way to make the web mail Outlook show the standard File menu instead of that worthless menu that appears now? The one that has symbols with no known meaning??? What idiots created this software?

  9. Official business account verified icon

    Recently, My friend and I received many emails from the bank account. Those email content wrote by using formal language and seems to be reliable. We notice that it was faked by their email address.

    We understand that it was hard to control the sign-up process so we would like to suggest an idea of ' Official business account verified icon ' which
    - You can see the (color) check icon after their name.
    - The icon should shown a tooltip such as ' this account was verified '
    - the user must submit the commercial registration to verify their…

  10. Request

    Allow users to format the email window for placement of Ads,, tool bar and folders side bar. Header and footer take up too much of the window, allow for 2 sidebars (left and right) for rearranging the window..

  11. Folder management limit

    Good evening,
      I archived the emails sent by me in a folder. When I select it, I no longer see the recipient of the emails, but only the sender (the undersigned).
    To be able to view the sender it is necessary to open each single email.
    This is a big limitation.
    Regards,
    Francesco

    Question: How can I set the startup folder, i.e., Inbox or Sent Items, when starting Web-based Outlook (or Hotmail)? I want to set Inbox as the default startup folder when I open Web-based Outlook.

  13. mark read "ctrl"

    The current keyboard shortcut for "Mark e-mail read" is CTRL+U, and the shortcut for "Mark e-mail unread" is CTRL+Q. It would make more sense if CTRL+U was used for unread

  14. Email field to "flag" a message should not be able to be sent with from host.

    Email field to flag a message should not be able to be sent with from host. This should only be a user triggered field. This would prevent spam from going to the top of people focused mailbox

  15. how about being able to 'flag' or 'highlight' a folder?

    Flag or highlight a folder to remind you of its importance or follow up. For example, I have a folder with a subfolder list of prospective customers and I'd like to highlight/flag the new ones I add to that list until I have completed my vetting.

  17. Email Headers not Parse-able from View Message Source

    The "View Message Source" function in the Outlook.com browser web app modifies the original Email Headers of a message and makes them impossible for header parsing tools to read the headers of the message correctly. This current view folds all of the white space and makes other formatting changes to render the full header un-parse-able by tools like https://mxtoolbox.com/emailheaders.aspx.

    Please modify the "View Message Source" to display the un-modified version of the full email headers so that it can be easily copied and pasted into an RFC parser and be readable by the parser.

    p.s. If you double click…

  19. the outlook layout sucks

    There is literally no room to view a full message - can't read it. There is no room to easily read a message while composing. It is a pain in the ars.

  20. drop the SPA. It is terrible. At LEAST offer an optional static-html option. Your application is BROKEN and annoying.

    Drop the "Single Page App" javascript turdball or at least add an optional static-html option for mail. The current version of outlook.com (an SPA, in industry parlance) is BROKEN and keeps reloading itself making EMAIL impossible!
    Your recommended "fix" of deleting ALL cookies does NOT WORK and is condescendending to constantly get told about, when it doesn't work
