  1. FOLDER to Sub-Folder problem

    I recently closed an Outlook Support call. However there is still a problem.

    My question/problem/issue now is how do I prevent accidentally moving a FOLDER to a Sub-Folder, This is a continuing problem
    for my Hotmail Outlook account. This has happened before AND IT WILL HAPPEN AGAIN.

    You may close the support issue 523763 because you have provided detailed instructions (work-around).

    Suggestion/Idea: If the above move is about to happen, accidentally, have a pop-up message appear to ask, "Are you sure you want to move this to Sub-Folder status"

  5. The new "suggested contacts" is not helpful any more. It save

    The new "suggested contacts" is not helpful any more. It saves junk mail names and misspelled names and I can not right click to delete them. Please put back the old better "suggested contacts" feature with remove with right click on the x. Thank you

  6. Expand "sweep" feature

    Expand the "Sweep" feature to be used with sorting. Sometimes I like to sort by A-Z then use the sweep feature.

  8. New e-mail format

    What did you do? My e-mail is soooooooooooo messed up. I was able to group my e-mails by sender which made it so much easier to edit. Now...it will take forever!!! So not cool for the majority of us that are not tech savy!!

  11. categories

    Please restore the Categories view, in addition to the folders view, so that I can see all the mail in a particular category as easily as I used to be able to. Currently, there doesn't appear to be a function allowing one to gather all same-categorised mail together in one view. Very odd, and sort of defeats the object, no?

  13. Move To DropDown Not Organized

    How the Move To drop
    down menu is organized is ridiculous. There is no distinction between the main folder and the subfolders. It is extremely easy to get lost trying to find the location I want to move an email to. Poorly thought out and designed.

  14. Make the field for selecting emails bigger

    Anything to the left of the sender should tick the circle for further action, not open the email

  15. BAD CHANGE to sweep, save last one in rules and delete all

    from the top bar, I used to be able to pull down a menu to sweep, or create a rule. That was so much easier and quick to do than now, when I have looked and cannot figure out how to do that anymore! options now are more clicks, harder to find and figure and I dont see WHERE/IF I can still just save the last one in, etc, as we used to be able to do.
    Or be able to right clicj=k and do it.

  16. Outlook 365

    Desktop office allows my to pin Tasks into my inbox so that I can track/flag projects that come through email. I'd like to replicate this in outlook 365, is that possible? I would think a task icon next to user account and settings would suffice.

  18. print function location

    A previous version several years ago had the ability to have the print function on the top banner. Now you have to go a layer below to find the function. There should be a way to customize one's screen to allow for the print function to be on that top banner and not have the user have to dive into lower layers. Every time I have to do extra steps, it is a annoyance and seems to be poor programming by the developers with their limitations imposed on the users.

  19. The "Review " tab has disappeared form my outlook programme after the last Microsoft update. How do I get it back?

    Make sure that when you do automatic updates you ensure they do not mess up peoples' systems. This is not the first time. I always have to re-adjust my computer after your updates
