  2. lost ability to use contact list from mail to address email or to invite guests to event in calendar

    Missing capabilities now that new Outlook has been pushed out with no ability to roll back. Use contact lists extensively in the organization to invite people to calendar event and also to address emails from Mail. Is this coming back? If so, when? This is a huge loss to our organization with no means to revert back to the old version.

  4. Discontinued email addresses still appear

    Why do old email addresses, long since removed from my list of contacts, still come up in 'suggested contacts'? I've just had a non-delivery notice because I sent an email to an address which no longer exists - MOST ANNOYING. Also, although I've changed the email address in my contact's details, I notice the old one still appears under her name in the list. THIS SHOULD HAVE BEEN CORRECTED LONG AGO.

  8. reset child password

    It should be much easier for a parent to reset a child's password without needing to change an account type or delete/re-create the account. The password security question answers are being rejected as insufficient, even though there's nothing else I can add. I can't reset it from the Family settings (even though I could delete the account from the family, and create a new account, but that means the email address will change.).

  10. Something very wrong with Contact List functionality

    Something is seriously wrong with the "contact list" functionality. When I remove someone's email address from the list, the next several times I use the list, that person still gets an email even though it is no longer listed as one of the contact list, and even though it is no longer even in my contacts. The SAVE feature of the contact list doesn't seem to work and it is still using previous versions of the list when sending out a message, while still showing me the current updated version of the list., If this isn't fixed soon I'm going…

  14. Error importing contacts with birthdays dd/mm/yyy

    Error with birthdays when exporting contacts and then importing contacts with date format dd/mm/yyy. When importing it appears that the import format required is mm/dd/yyyy hence dates are dropped or are day / month flipped.

  15. search in contacts should include the notes

    Search in Contacts (People) should include words in the Notes area. When I use Search, it should find Contacts that have that text in the --Notes-- area of the Contact. Thanks.

  19. when looking at a sent email...you cannot see the entire list of email addresses of people that you sent it to. I want to copy and paste

    When i send an email to more than 25 or so people and then look into the sent email for the bcc addresses it does not show all of the addresses in the bcc line. I used to be able to copy all of those bcc addresses and send out another email to those same people. Please bring that function back

  20. Edit the GAL & Address book drop down lists

    Edit the GAL:
    When sending an email, you click on the To button; edit Jane; Rt Click it; Properties; rt click Email Addresses; - if she's left I can't delete her.
    If you select Address Books, none of the All Addresses; All Contacts; All Groups; Room or Users work - can these be edited or removed?
    If you select the Advanced Find & try part of a Person's name eg Rob, I don't get a list of all Roberts & Robinsons come up, - it just does not work!
