  1. mailbox challenge?

    I find your password mechanism difficult to remember, so this discourages me from enabling two factor authentication [Stockholm syndrome].

    your interface disables using simple passwords and passwords used in the past [rules that I hope you will disable if I accept a simple password or alternative ways to authenticate without a password as the password recovery process is lengthy and painstaking and has a negative impact on my mental health].

    I use email for regular correspondence including tons of e-newsletters and requests from recruiters, so it is a commonly used communication tool, hoping that when I have a profit-making use…

  2. cannot logon to account [hacked?]

    authentication problems occur with my old account as the browsers [Microsoft Edge and google chrome] do not save the old password and I am unable to logon again.

    i have important correspondence on these accounts that may be relevant to my audits.

  4. OWA beta mode - replying HTML e-mails in plain text

    Whenever I configure OWA in beta mode (which is awesome, by the way) for composing e-mails in plain text and I reply to an e-mail which was sent in HTML, OWA doesn't convert the original e-mail to text and instead completely removes it from the reply. This is annoying and should be fixed IMHO.

  5. New email is horrible for visually impaired. We shouldn't be forced into purchasing "ad free" just to read our emails.

    So, for me, being visually impaired, you are forcing me to sign up and pay for 'Ad Free' email??? That is just wrong. I am disabled on a small monthly stipend, hearing and visually impaired, but you want a percentage of my meager income to get my email. Shame on you. Judith Gregory

  6. This should not be a field to fill in or it won't Submit-- but unless to enter something here -not obvious u should- it won't Submit!!!

    The Print/Cancel screen SHOULD disappear after you print but it doesn't- it keeps reappearing when you try to see other emails! You have to hit Cancel after you print or it won't go away. The Cancel button should be only to cancel printing, I would think...

  7. Move the send button a bit to the right (vs. right under the reply button)

    Move the send button over a bit to the right (to reduce accidental sends). I may have an itchy trigger finger but with the new layout, I find that once I hit reply, I'm often accidentally sending blank emails to people because the Send button is right on top of where the Reply button was. If you move it right just a bit, I won't have this continue to happen. I welcome other solutions but this seems like a decent starting place. Thanks!

  11. Forward Entire Email Folder to another Email Address

    There should be an option to click a folder or at least when you open an email folder and check all the emails to forward them all to another email address.

    Recently I created a semi-viral website and used the wrong email address and now there is no easy way to just forward that email folder to the correct email address. To go thru them one by one would take me years, Please consider adding this option. Thanx in advance

  13. delete email when blocking sender is not good!

    I only wanted to block a sender, but when I blocked it the email from them that I was viewing got deleted. I didn't want to delete the email, I just wanted to block the sender.

    Is there a way to recover that email?

    Attention needs to be given to moving mail to other mailboxes. I click on "move to" numerous times and it won't open.

  18. Only for making Hotmail better

    When I mark an email as Phishing, I don't consider finding it in Trash folder as a good choice.
    Also, the Trash folder needs an Empty Trash button, that deletes all, without any confirmation. For security reasons, you still offer the Recover Deleted Emails option.
    Above all, after so many years of using Hotmail, I still consider it the best email client. It suits all my comunication needs.
    Best regards

  19. READ FLAGGED MESSAGES LATER!

    When you flag a message, stop the screen from going straight to flagged messages. You flag it to read it later! It's really annoying having to scroll back down and find where you were up to!
