  1. When contacts are linked together on the web, they should appear as merged single contact through Exchange ActiveSync.

    Because Outlook for iOS doesn't sync Outlook.com contacts with iOS contacts, I have to rely on adding the Outlook.com account and contacts synchronization done iOS. The contacts synchronize, however when I have multiple contacts (from Skype, from address book, etc.) in Outlook.com, I had them linked as one. On iOS, they appear as multiple contacts which are not linked. I suppose it would be great if linked contacts appeared as one when synced through Exchange ActiveSync.

  2. Keep the Skype Panel.

    If people want more space, they need to get a bigger monitor.

    although the chat icon should be changed to the skype Icon like in office365
    It makes no sense for the personal outlook to be different.

  3. New feedback from Outlook.com (React)

    Every time I login there is a stupid skype notification from a bot trying to push a service I really hate into me. I wish I could disable skype and delete skype from my microsoft account. I hate skype so much that I have stopped using outlook and actively avoid other microsoft products from this. Because of spam from official microsoft accounts in skype, I am now actively working to move users and colleagues and PCs I administer into Google Services and replacements. I have stopped using Microsoft Office as well. I really hate skype, and I hate microsoft for…

  4. New feedback from Outlook.com (React)

    The new skype integration is a f4cking piece of monkey sh1t. I can't use my skype account and my email account together in the outlook, coz they are not in the same microsoft account, and you cant change it (unlink) or set it to use another skype account.

  8. New feedback from Outlook.com (React)

    Can you make it possible to Turn off Skype please?? So many people have asked for this feature for years, and you do nothing about it.

    It's extremely annoying to have Skype turn on every single time I check my mail, and I get tons of messages, when I just wanted to check my mail for 2 seconds.

  10. New feedback from Outlook.com (React)

    I deleted all my Skype contacts because it was messing with my other contact. They are still in my contacts but not in my skype.com contacts.
    It's like the outlook.com server doesn't go out and refresh.

  11. New feedback

    Skype Message window is too small! I miss the full script window down the right-hand side of the screen. Can you add an option to extend the height of the chat window?

  13. Skype integration, instead of showing as a side panel the options are hanging as a drop down then disappear or a separate tab.

    Have Skype on the same tab as the mailbox permanently.
    I don't want a separate tab or having to keep Skype expanding it to see it. This is a step backwards
    Also the Android app does not allow you to ungroup messages

  14. Skype Improvements

    It's great that skype is finally on the beta version of Outlook, but it still has room to improve.
    For example, the small chat window is unsatisfactory; a better option would be for a side pane to open as it does when you click on the settings button and on the help button (and also the previous version of Outlook). The side pane allows for a bigger, better view of the chat without needing to blow up the zoom level on the page, and allows for better visualization of images and attachments.
    Furthermore, the chat itself isn't yet fully functional:…

  16. attachment

    The new outlook beta version seems fine. but I wish the size of the font could be a bit smaller. Also the attachments are shown now in the regular folder which takes up a lot of screen space. Since I use a laptop for viewing outlook mails, the screen space taken for showing attachments are more. If there is an automated option of shrinking the attachment according to screen space, then it would be better.
    Also the skype option is also missing in the new beta version. Kindly include that also.

  17. Better skype management : skype on many devices, when they ring at the same time but make it unable to nanswer from outlook in the browser

    Skype have trouble if it is connected on your phone, on your desktop and on Outlook in your browser, to know where you should answer and keep ringing. If this can be improved in the new version it would be great
