  1. Website times out

    When I have Outlook opened in a browser tab (Firefox), it eventually times out giving me an error and I have to re-load the page. Other similar programs like Gmail rarely ever time out

  3. Shut off Drafts!

    Can't type anything longer then 15 words before stupid draft needs to get saved. I then have to sit and wait for it to catch up. Any way to shut it off?

  4. Email just sent, a blank page in Inbox

    Recently, why doesn't email I just sent and BCC'd me an extra copy, when I click on it to check/read again--NOT appear, except for the Subject title and a completely blank, white page? I can go to another folder to read a copy of it, but that's more trouble. What gives? Used to work perfectly before.

  5. Modifying settings

    Warn users before selection which Advanced Settings will require account verification; just wasted five minutes because I clicked on Forwarding out of curiosity...

  6. Feedback on beta version

    I still like the old streamlined outlook the best, but I do like the betas sweep option for cleaning up folders and managing your rules. Take all the little symbols off the left side bar and make it look like the older one. also when sorting by sender can you turn off the header , it wastes space and confusing when deleting unwanted emails.

  7. cannot read entire messages in email

    all these bars to move info around in email is annoying and does not work. I can only read either left side or right side of email. one side at a time, the bar at the bottom of the email is not visible at the beginning so cannot read left and right sides....and the bars to scroll down are not efficient and keep defaulting back to the beginning which is really really annoying.

  9. Memory issue with Outlook (Mail, Contact, Calendar)

    Mail and Contact web apps takes around 300MB of RAM when opened with Edge. And Calendar takes more than 200MB. This is far too much!

  10. Custom keyboard shortcuts

    It would be a performance improvement if the keyboard shortcuts can be customized. This way users can match other programs, systems, and devices for increased productivity.
    I am aware of being able to match a few pre-selected programs. I am referring to being able to edit the shortcuts individually.

  11. Windows Sign In Annoying

    Windows sign in: does not remember email address and cannot use keyboard to day OK without tabbing 3 times to select the button. Sign in is more annoying on windows than android cell phone.

  17. Eliminating Foreign Language Fonts for English Users

    How do I permanently “opt out” of having the 5–10 second delay for Outlook to load the font list as it fills that font list with dozens of foreign language scripts that normal English speaking people have no use for?

    I don't, and never will, need Japanese, Chinese, Nirmala, Gautami, Raavi, or any of the other gibberish fonts of non-English users.

    Have you ever heard of loading all the items in a list and allowing users to scroll to the end of it right away?

  20. All other emails get deleted when I select a few emails to be selected.

    All other emails get deleted when I select a few emails to be selected.

    Rather than fixing the "looks"(UI) of the system, please stablize the core functions!!!
