  1. [Suggestion]:Inconsistencies between Desktop and Web Clients

    Forward Contact Information from Outlook web client. It should work like the Desktop client. It is silly to have to use a different "Outlook" application to accomplish certain tasks.

  2. [Suggestion]:It is kind of frustrating that it is not possible to clear suggested search.

    Dear

    In the Outlook app, I see people in my "contacts" menu that are not in my outlook contacts because they are empty.
    I think this has somthing to do with a "suggested search" cache that I'm not able to delete. This is really ennoying..

    For instance when I type some letters of the alphabet in the search bar, some people pops up under the title: "suggested search", that I send a mail years ago.

    Even if I delete all emails that I sent to people, they still are in "suggested search", but only the mails did disappear.

    I hope…

  3. [Suggestion]:Ability to Remove or Clear autocomplete suggestions

    Need ability to CLEAR or ELIMINATE address suggestions that are filling up with SPAM email addresses, while keeping the autocomplete list. Please allow this just like you do the autocomplete addresses - it's too easy for older folks to accidentally engage spammers!!!!

  9. Is there any way to communicate with someone at Microsoft who knows what they are doing?

    I was referred here by Microsoft Support when they couldn't help. The outlook functions are causing mail on my iPhone to frequently freeze and my contacts list to drop large numbers of contacts and then recover the missing Contacts after I reboot the phone. Apple insists that this is an Outlook problem.

  11. Link people to calendar event by cell number instead fo an email

    As email address is no longer dominating method of people/contact identification in address book, now it is cell phone numberis main id method of contact identification that would be quite useful feature to link people from address book to calendar event using cell phone number. At the present time it is possible just for contact which email I have.

  12. Let us un-set contact photo

    There should be a way to "unset" contact photo. I have a bunch of contacts from back when contacts were imported from Facebook, I think it was, and they have somewhat nonsense/old photos that I'd like to restore to the two-letter badge. That'd be more useful than old photos, especially on contacts that are just an email address imported from Facebook.

  13. Outlook issues

    I do not like OUTLOOK!! First is could not find "People". Then when I tried to set up a group, My Name came up first and then the 8 others I added were only listed by e-mail. I HATE THAT!!! How can their names by Listed instead of the circle with a letter and an e-mail which means diddly squat. You are not user friendly at all. The improvements SUCK.

  14. Delete duplicates instead of linking

    The merge function for contacts should actually MERGE information in a single contact, instead of linking two identical ones!

  17. Tags to contacts

    Can you please add tags to contacts, similar to photos, so that contacts can belong to different groups ? This not for the same use as contact lists, but to share groups

  19. Outlook for IOS does't work properly with Outlook.com

    It's really a shame. After using Outlook since the 1990's I have had enough. Enter a new contact into the Contacts app on your iPhone and it appears at Outlook.com on the web, but does NOT appear in contacts in Outlook for IOS. Enter a new contact in Outlook for IOS on your iPhone and it appears on Outlook.com and in the Contacts app on the iPhone, BUT if you then close everything and go searching for it in Outlook for IOS, only the first phone number shows up. At the same time, the whole thing shows up in the…

  20. I think having yellow colored people emojis by default that cannot be changed is UNACCEPTABLE

    How is it possible that the color of the people emojis is stuck on yellow? Why are there colors offered if they can't be changed? Why can't my emoji people have dark skin??? Unacceptable! Outlook.com Support and the engineers team says "it can not be changed" Ridiculous!
