  2. Too Easy to Delete Email Drafts on MacBook Pro

    I use a newer MacBook Pro, with the touch bar... and it is BRUTAL for email using Outlook web mail... it is WAY too easy to delete draft emails by accidentally touching the esc button... and seemingly in one motion... the email draft is escaped out and then gone forever, not saved in drafts, etc. I have lost TONS of important business emails this way, some rather long, and I am forced to rewrite them over and over again. Can you please add a setting where you can retrieve recently deleted drafts?

  3. You can't use "Always move to Other" if you select more than one email.

    You can't use "Always move to Other" if you select more than one email. You should be able to select multiple emails to be sent to the other inbox at the same time.

  4. New Search bar location doesn't work for me.

    I really don't like the new location of the Search bar in Outlook. I wish we had more control over these things. Not every idea is a good one and Microsoft's propensity for trying to control everyone's user experience is what drives users to Apple.

  5. When Reading email/reading pane Subject line should be below the recipient list

    I get that putting the subject above the recipents makes it look like it's the email "Title" however I've had too many people not see important information as the subject line is not just above the body. Being removed from it.
    when we send email it's
    To
    CC
    Subject
    body.....

    but in reading pane/opening an email to another window to read it..

    Subject
    To
    CC
    body.....

    This makes no sense to me. Please at least give us the option to put it where it belongs as it's an important part of the message, far more important than the recipient lists.

  7. No option to remove an alias

    In my list of alias there is an option to remove an alias if I want.
    Except for one that is just my name with no email address.
    Is there a way for me to remove this alias?

  8. Option to Turn-off Junk folder or wildcard to white-list all internet

    Nearly all the emails I receive, like 90%, go into Junk folder, but no of them is actually Spam. And now it has started to be even worse. I want to Turn off Junk folder, completely. I don't get nearly any Spam - never. I don't need and don't want Junk folder. The folder never worked, at all. Or I need a wild card rule to white-list whole domain like .com. or whole internet like "".

  9. "Folders" is intrusive, should be moved below "Inbox" menu

    "Folders" category should be moved lower in the list on the left pane, it's intrusive. "Inbox" should be at the top.

  10. Your CSS uses '!important' and thus ruins email layout

    Your CSS overrides an email's CSS by means of the hack "!important":

    .3U2q6dcdZCrTrR42Nxby td { white-space: normal!important; }

    You guys shouldn't be doing that. As Mozzila says: "Using !important, however, is bad practice and should be avoided because it makes debugging more difficult by breaking the natural cascading in your stylesheets."

    Somebody is cheating.

  14. Resizing outlook in browsers for split (snap?) screen.

    I use split screen, usually right half is browser and left is another application. Currently, when I do this, the left side folder list and the email list are SO FREAKING HUGE I am unable to read the emails unless I make the browser full screen. You either need to make the left side lists smaller, make them where you can hide them, or at least add a scroll in the email pane to go right/left so I can read the contents of the email, I would be happy to provide some screenshots if needed.

  15. Rules for old messages

    It doesn't seem possible to create a before/after date rule that applies to old emails: choosing a before or after date that occurred before today is blocked).

    It would be helpful to have the option of creating a rule for any message older than a a certain amount of time (For example, every email from a certain sender that is older than a month should be deleted). In absence of that, it would be helpful to allow selection of a specific date that is not today's date.

  17. Outlook.com Sidebar should stay in tab.

    Having the sidebar on the web match the Android Outlook app, with the mailbox accounts showing down the side, is great. However, clicking on them only to have them open a new tab ... not so great. Looking forward when it just changes mailboxes in the same tab.

  18. Connected Accounts Two Way Sync Back To IMAP Mail Server

    Connected Accounts (Sync Email) should sync back to the original mail server, especially when connected over IMAP. At the moment it copy only email from IMAP to outlook.com.

    If I use POP, then it is possible to delete the email, but give me new problems with "send on behalf" with Office Outlook.

  19. New Sort Feature

    2 or 3 stage sort feature for email would be nice. Example: 1st sort by from 2nd then by date 3rd then by subject all in one sort function like in excel. That would help me out a lot.

  20. disable special formatting in email subject

    special formatting in email subject is super annoying. Apparently only spammers use it anyway. Please restrict to plain text. Thanks!
