  1. 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

  2. Outlook Startup Folder

    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.

  3. 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

  4. 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

  5. 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.

  7. 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…

  8. ****** connection with often password resets

    Stop getting our account disconnected with **** security rules. Need to change my password every now and then, don't receive my mails as should be. I stopped using my Xbox because of that, am starting to hate Microsoft products just because of that. Stop with the security **** all the time ! Google don't have those nonsense problems.

  9. 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.

  10. 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

  12. dark theme

    Using Dark Theme, I can see no visual indication of folders that can and can't be renamed using the right-click context menu. Even when the menu is open, the options to rename or delete seem available but simply do nothing.

    Be good if the menu items were 'greyed out' when unavailable.

  13. Outlook groups

    Let Outlook Groups to send emails on behalf of groups email address which looks like: ###@groups.outlook.com
    It is possible for business subscriptions but does not work for O365 Personal which makes groups half useless.

  14. Please scroll to top if we have reading view on and change to a different email.

    Please scroll to top if we have reading view on and change to a different email. With that tiny scroll bar, we have to click inside the message and click home, each time we change the message to a different one. It is so much annoying.

  15. “(i) You replied on …”

    The system already adds “(i) You replied on Fri 2019-10-18 7:45 PM” as a header to messages replied to; and that is a wonderful addition.

    I would find it helpful to have that “You replied on…” system message hyperlinked to the indicated reply message in whatever folder it's in.

    This would prove helpful when one accidentally misfiles a reply message, or when moving original and reply messages from the “Inbox” and “Sent” folders to the same, or different, folders (Allowing: Move original message from Inbox, Click "You replied on…", Drag message from “Sent” folder to same destination folder).

    Ideally, the…

  18. Organize email with Tag Views instead of Folders

    Instead of folders, I would like to have a system of organizing email by Tags. With customize-able rules for tagging incoming emails (e.g. tag domain-x with "bank", "savings", tag domain-y with "games", "xbox", tag keywords "support", "help", etc). Then allow setting up Views based on tag rules (Included emails with tags ..., exclude emails with tags ...).

  19. The DATE filter to search emails is not user friendly

    When using the DATE filter to search emails, the only way to select a date is by scrolling through the calendar. When one needs an email from many years back, it takes ages before you finally arrive scrolling through the calendar month by month. Please make it possible to immediately enter the year by hand!

  20. Please set Sender name header apart somehow

    When I sort emails by sender, am driven crazy by the fact the sender's name is not differentiated from their list of emails that follow.... Please could you set "Sender" name header apart from the mails they have sent, either with underline, or color, or bold or text size -- anything! Thank you.
