  3. dark mode issues

    The overall issue is darkmode is very hard to work with as a developer, until recently we could override certain things that were breaking but the recent update adds !important to the inlined styles so we can no longer fix the bugs it causes.

    A few of the bugs that we’re facing include...
    Light colours are adjusted but dark are not, leading to a lack of visual structure where contrast is being used.
    When dark text is applied to a light background image the text is made light but the background stays the same making it very hard to read …

  5. Deleted Items Folder - Mass vs Selective Delete of Items

    Deleted Items Folder - Need to be able to delete items by the page by clicking the Deleted Items button - available in previous version. New version selects all mail in Deleted Items folder to be deleted. I now have to select emails individually to delete - wasting my time.

  6. Replying to email

    Can't reply to an open email while it is open. I had to CLOSE the email to reply. Cumbersome. I HATE your updates so far. Bring back the previous version.

  8. html signature

    Easily add a html signature in outlook.com and mobile outlook app so signature looks the same regardless of the device i'm using to send e-mail. Currently, I can only add a HTML e-mail in outlook desktop app.

  10. Unable to move a folder out of a folder

    The folders in the email tap: I was able to move a folder out of another folder. In last years outlook.com webmail, I was able to drag a folder to the folders to bring out a folder from a folder. I am unable to do that in the new outlook webmail. I can drag a folder into another folder. However, the new outlook.com webmail doesn't have a reverse.

  11. I would like to be able to see more messages at a glance in my inbox

    Each upgrade of Outlook seems to have the side effect (I assume it's a side effect and not intentional because that would appear to be stupid) of reducing the number of emails I can see at a glance in my inbox. This greatly reduces its functionality for me. Why have so much unused space?
    Like many people on this site, I also object to being forced to accept this change (and all the regular changes, it seems, for change's sake) without being asked or given an alternative.

    Hey, thanks for your feedback!

    Please note: Microsoft does NOT sign you up for any of these subscriptions. We are just showing you which subscriptions you’ve been added to already, usually because you gave your email to a site online.

    If you go to the subscription manager, you will see a list of all the senders who have been sending you emails. You can then unsubscribe from any of those emails using the “Unsubscribe” button.

    The goal of this feature is to make it super easy for you to unsubscribe from subscription emails! If there are other issues going on with this feature, please let us know!

  13. Block Sender

    You marked "completed" the "Block Sender" item that had over 1100 votes and many more comments. The solution you gave does not work when the email is already in the "Junk" email folder. Right clicking on items in the "Junk" folder opens the email. It does bring up the "Block" function, but still opens the email. Again, your solution addresses emails that are not already in the "Junk" folder. Please reopen this issue and give us a way to block emails without having to open them if they are already in the Junk folder based on your spam criteria. This…

  16. Delete Multiple Emails

    It would be nice to be able to select an email at the top of the page then select and email at the bottom of the page and then delete all emails between the 2 that were selected. I have over 12,000 emails in my "deleted items" folder. I need to get rid of a lot of them, but not all. Selecting each email individually is going to take way too long.

  18. Original message "automatically included" but not displayed

    Original message is not displayed to me while typing my reply (even in raw text mode). How am I supposed to even "reply" to it if I can't see it while so doing?

    Please give us the possibility to go back to the old version, as long as the new one has such defects...

  19. Can't add new people when replying to email

    I wanted to reply to a friend and add a new contact. I click TO: and get an insanely long list of contacts that I'd have to scroll through. Usually, you type the first letter of the person's email address or name and you'd jump to that part of the contacts list, but my new person doesn't appear. This beta version is terrible. The interface is too busy with ridiculous "charms" and icons. I can't find messages. The calendar is a disaster. I have reverted back to the "classic" view. Why can't the developers leave well enough alone? Why do…

  20. I just want to see my mail

    I want to open my email and it just be there, in the order received. No ads in my mailbox! That's just insane. Put them in banners on the top or side like you used to. I don't like how only 5 emails show up. I used to hate how Gmail looked but I prefer it a million times better than all the "Focused" and segregation stuff that comes default. Make them options, not default.
