  2. verify

    I cannot log onto outlook.com because it wants to verify who I am by texting me a pass code. I do not own a cellphone so cannot receive the code. Therefore I am locked out. All Microsoft online support could suggest is for me to go out and buy a cellphone. There has to be another way to verify. This issue also means I cannot send any emails using Microsoft Mail. Please fix issue.

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  7. 'Mark all as read' button needs to be removed!

    'Mark all as read' button needs to be REMOVED!!! I clicked on it accidentally and several hundred of UNREAD messages that I needed to respond to were now marked as read. Now tell me how do I know which messages I need to respond to? This happened to me several times already, please remove the button or move it somewhere else.

  10. 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.

  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.

  13. Block Junk

    In Outlook under "Quick Settings", "View All Outlook settings", "Customize Actions", "Message Organization", "Message Surface"​ make "Delete" and "Block" permanent after "Save". The current operation is that the Delete and Block functions revert to their unchecked status after a period of time and have to be re-set.

  14. 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.

  17. 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".

  18. 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

  20. Allow search in Rules

    Make rules searchable. I use lots of rules and have a ton of them. I would love to be able to search my rule set to better manage it.
