  1. Compose and Replies should be on a dark background in Dark Mode

    When composing an email, either reply or new, the background is white.
    This should not occur when on "Dark Mode".

    Additionally, when highlighting text when in Dark Mode, the background that would usually display when highlighting is transparent making it difficult to tell if the correct text is fully highlighted.

    Thanks for the love. We are working on defining the best way to make this happen. As you know, when we released Dark Mode, we said that it was going to be the best Dark Mode experience ever. We want to keep the bar super high, so this will take a little time. :)

  2. Please provide option to STOP automatic bulleting

    I'm tired of this assuming that I want bulleting/formatting when I create my emails. Please provide a way to turn OFF or STOP automatic bulleting.

    Thank you.

  3. Managing Subscriptions in Mail Settings

    The Subscriptions page in Mail Settings should be properly thought through.
    Currently, there is a list of email addresses in it that apparently shows the many newsletters a user is subscribed to.

    I believe this list is populated automatically without any input from the user. It is scary to see in that list email addresses that are obviously junk email addresses as well. Gives the user the impression either the system has been compromised or the user might have unknowingly subscribed to a ton of junk emails, which are not their fault in any way.

    Futhermore, some email addresses are…

  6. I liked the old draft page as I could alphabetize my files or arrange them in any format that I wished.

    I liked the old draft page as I could alphabetize my files or arrange them in any format that I wished. There are many things that I prefer in the classic format.

  9. facebook

    Why did a reply to an email I sent addressed me by my Facebook handle? I replied to that email that was sent to my hotmail account. How did he know my Facebook handle? This has never happened before. I never signed in or linked my email account with Facebook. This recent incident happened after my hotmail was changed to this new Outlook interface without my permission. This is a serious privacy issue.

  14. Always resets to the latest email instead of where the last email I read was in the lest.

    With the previous version of Outlook after I finished reading an email from any where in the Inbox list and either clicked on Inbox or hit the MS internet explorer back arrow the display went back to the Inbox list in the area which contained the email I just read. With this new version of Outlook it puts me back to the beginning of the Inbox list and I have to scroll down thru the list looking for the same area where the email I just read was in the list so I can see if there are any other…

  15. Inbox reading pane flashes on and off!

    The reading pane contents continuously flash on and off which is very annoying. I'm using Windows XP and had the same problem with the beta version. For that reason I stopped using it and want the old version back! Also while the inbox list refreshes the top add delete button moves over so that the add can accidentally be clicked on. Also a very annoying little trick.

  17. Not getting email from safe sender

    Not getting email from safe sender. I've added them as a contact, as a favorite, and have them in safe senders list yet I get no email from them. I know that they're sending it because my wife does get emails from this address and they have my email in the TO field.

  19. This is broken and needs fixed.

    The "move to" feature doesn't work right since the update. When you show all folders they are jumbled up and only half readable.
