  1. Please restore the option to Copy emails to more than one folder.

    Where is the option when Moving emails to Copy them to another folder? That is an essential feature! Please restore this critical feature asap, otherwise users have to forward emails to themselves to be able to file a second copy in another folder.

  2. I can't see my emails

    I can't see my emails - only emails from the last 2 weeks. If I search, I can find them but I need to be able to acces all, not just 30. It is impossible to use now

  3. No shortage of Outlook malfunctions.

    Just got this error when trying to access email: "The custom error module does not recognize this error." Outlook is just getting more unusable every week.

  4. Do not like the select all feature.

    I was ecstatic to see I didn't have to delete 20 emails at a time. Now I am no longer happy with this feature because when I try to search in my email for a key word, it would only show me the emails that had the same key word in it and now if I select all, it selects ALL of my mail- even the emails I choose to keep. Please set it to 50 or something like that if you are going to make it endless or I'll have to find a new email provider.

  5. why the 'delete' and 'delete all' buttons change places????

    the 'delete' and 'delete all' buttons change places, and you end up clicking the wrong button to archive the emails instead.

  6. IDEA: Outlook Email < to > Microsoft To-Do Task

    Outlook Email <to> Microsoft To-Do Task

    Add the ability for an email to be converted to a task or a task created from it.

    Not an original idea as Novell GroupWise did that back in the day, but I found it to be very useful.

    It's practical in both directions.

    a) Use existing email to create a task from it which would either stem from the body of the message or specific instructions for a task appended by the user.

    b) Have a task with relevant content in the body likely converted to or used to create an email.

  7. Hard to tell what is selected, focused or other

    it's hard to tell whether Focused or Other email is selected. One is gray and the other is white but I'm not sure which one is the active one. Make box selected more clear.

    The Help and Account (used to sign out) buttons are off the computer screen in maximized window mode, and I have to restore down the window to find it!

  11. Clickbox too small

    It's too easy to accidentally open an email when you are trying to click the circle to add it to the list of things to delete. I suggest expanding the clickbox range , even if the circle itself stays the same size.

  16. Translation issue

    "Empty folder" button has a kinda incorrect translation for Portuguese (Brazilian). It's currently translated as "Pasta vazia" which denotes an state (the folder IS already empty) not an action (the folder WILL be emptied), I think it would be better as "Esvaziar pasta".

  17. Read vs Unread emails

    read emails no longer change colour...why?
    I cannot tell which emails are read or unread anymore!!!!!@!@
    A bolded Name of the sender doesn't show up well unless i have the brightness jacked up and the blue light is on full. Later in the day/evening I have filters on to allow me to sleep at night. READ emails should be grey and not still bright white like UNREAD emails!!!!
    Jesus it drives us all nuts when y'all make these ridiculous changes!!!!!

  20. Select all

    Instead of having it one way or the other bring back the old way and merge it with the new way!

    Something like holding down the select all button to display a new hidden option where you can choose between selecting all or selecting all that can be seen by the screen.

    That way if you have some many hundreds or even thousands of emails you keep in your inbox and do not want deleted you dont need to go through the emails you do want deleted one-by-one!
