  1. Dark mode: The number showing how many NEW messages received is not contrasty enough.

    Dark theme mode: The number in a circle (grey) indicating the number of NEW messages received, is too pale to see . Currently is is white on light grey.

    It should BLACK on the grey/white circle.

  7. Turn options back on

    In Outlook I used to be able to block junk senders easily by clicking junk.
    Then I had the choices of Block Sender, Block Senders Domain, or Block this group or mailing list. Those selections are now preceded by the word NEVER. Why can I not make those options active again? You guys build a good system then mess it up! Yes I know I can go down to the email options and do it and I have. It's a pain in the rear the old way was so easy.

  8. Daily digest summary for email rules for messages that are moved into folders

    When creating email rules, I'd like the ability to opt-in for a daily digest-like summary. When i create email rules to move messages into folders, we are losing the notifications all together. Having a daily summary would create a good middle ground for this problem.

  9. safe sender list

    Put the safe sender list on top of the outloo.com website. Reason this item is a setting and I am sure it is used often. The item itself is very hidden. To find it, one must use help and enter : find safe sender lsit.

  10. CONFUSING AS USUAL. MAKE IT SIMPLE!!!!

    Impossible to create a group contact (with 5 members in the same company) in the address. Please make it easy and simple to create an address book (email address book). .WHY IS OUTLOOK SO COMPLICATED NOT BEING USER FRIENDLY? VERY FRUSTRATING.

  13. Provide option in settings to share junk mail report with 3rd party

    Please provide option to share junk mail report with 3rd party in the settings. I would turn this off as I still want the junk mail even though I have it filtered from the inbox using Outlook's algorithms. By automatically sharing the report, some 3rd parties stop sending E-mails, which I still want as they get my interest from time to time.

  14. IMAP does not work at all

    Synchronizing other mail accounts using IMAP does not work properly. Mails are received with huge time lag, syncing back the status like mail being read does not work, and - worst of all - mails deleted in Outlook Live are not deleted on the server. Unbelievable!

  17. Prompt which folder sent messages should be saved to

    By default sent mail is saved to the Sent folder. This results in messages being distributed across two folders. When a message is sent I would appreciate the option to determine which folder it should be saved in, keeping all correspondence on the matter in a single folder. Thank you.

  18. Recover deleted outlook.com aliases

    Users should have a period of time - a week would be enough for many people - to undelete aliases that were deleted from accounts (often by kids on xbox.) When an account is closed, users have 60 days to change their mind - they should have a similar option when aliases are deleted.

    For an example of the problem this will solve, see this thread, https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/outlook_com/forum/all/my-hotmail-account-was-deleted-while-my-son-was/2250b864-3712-4813-b736-e896e8146c25

  20. Crop Picture Function in Outlook

    Would recommend adding a crop icon/function to Outlook mail edits. Currently, there is no function to crop pictures on Outlook mail when replying or sending mail.
