  1. It's to har do block junk mail domains

    Since number of same mails from not so serious senders are sent from a number of different domains. i would like to have a button to block the domain directly in the UI. It is quite cumbersome to copy domain and add it to the block domain list.

    Thank you for your feedback. We appreciate that you took the time to write to us.

    You might enjoy the new Outlook experience more with a few changes to your settings, which you can find by clicking the gear icon. Try changing the setting for Conversation view to Off, changing the setting for Reading pane to Hide, and changing the setting for Attachment preview to Off.

    We’re always interested in new ideas, but we need some more specific feedback to fix the problem for you. If you have more detailed suggestions, please update your idea or add a new one.

  2. Why fix something that wasn't broken

    Can't stand the new email system.
    I didn't make the move to gmail like my friends and family as I much preferred the system of old hotmail. Now they've changed it to something similar to gmail. I feel like its a copy of their system and if people wanted it they would have made the change already.

    Please allow us to choose to change back.

  3. beta

    In full agreement with everyone else comments on "beta" why change something that was working perfectly well for this appalling designed application, I am all in favour of improving but this is one step to far.

    Creating a new e-mail where but it is only partially visible and you need to keep scrolling up and down to see the full content, its a new email so why not open a new view as per the old system you can then scroll through current email without leaving the new one.

  4. Please allow social media icons pasted into email signatures to be hyperlinked to the user's corresponding social media accounts

    Please allow social media icons pasted into email signatures to be hyperlinked to the user's corresponding social media accounts.

    It is almost mandatory now and looks unprofessional having straggly complicated links clogging up signatures, as opposed to simple icons. It is easily possible on Gmail, and just about every other email client - please consider!

  6. Please re-add the "Protect" option in Outlook.com Beta version. It was in the Classic version.

    This option from the Outlook.com classic version is helpful if I don't want my emails to be forwarded to another user or another email account. Please bring it back and have that feature added also in the Beta version.

    Hi there, thank you for providing feedback and for using Outlook.com. I just wanted to let you know that we still have the same options to Protect your email as before.

    However, now it is called encrypt. You should see this button on your compose screen. If you click on it, you will see there is encrypt and do not forward.

    Hope that helps

  9. Don't make "focused" pre-sorting the default

    I don't like automatic sorting into focused and other. I want default to just be all my mail, that could be a feature to opt in if people want it, but not sorted like that by default.

    Thank you for using Outlook.com, and for providing all of this great feedback. Based on your feedback, I think we have an option that will make you happy. We actually do allow you to disable focused other, if you rather not view your mail in that way.

    Follow these steps, and you will get your mail in one view

    1) Click on the Gear in the top right
    2) This opens the Quick Settings pane. From here you can turn off focused other.

    Hope this helps!

    If you look to the left of the Focused/Other buttons, there is a gray circle with the check inside. If you click that button, you will select all messages in Other. Then you can use the Delete button in the triage bar (above the Focused/Other buttons) to delete all, or move all, etc.

    Hope this helps!

  13. No way to "schedule" an email

    the Scheduled folder is a waste of time considering there is no way to schedule an email. Don't make it a folder if I can't use it and if there is a way to schedule an email maybe let me see how when I look in the help section

  17. Recover Deleted Email Alias

    My daughter accidentally deleted my email alias which was a *******@hotmail.com (an email address I've had since before the world wide web). Now I'm told that I can't recover that alias even though it's the main email address for the account because it's a reserved domain. I should be able to recover that email alias since it's already tied to the account. Everything I have is tied to that email alias.

  19. Outlook 365 vs Outlook.com

    I don't want this 'Other' filter. It's causing emails not to show up in Outlook 365 and I have to come in here to see them. Outlook 365 has no 'Other' and Outlook.com shouldn't automatically dictate the way Outlook 365 sees emails! I'm paying for that product, not Outlook.com.
