  1. Clear Suggested Searches History

    Clear Suggested Searches history. The ability to clear this should be available, often contacts I will never ever use again, not needed and just clutter of stuff I don't need to see anymore, one off contacts, junk etc. thank you.

  2. suggestions of contacts in search

    The suggestions of contacts in search appear emails from contacts that we do not have, they should not appear, they should be able to be deleted. Suggested emails in search are always the same and do not allow to be deleted, hopefully they will change that.

  3. Search bar

    I want the search text boxes back to what they were in Outlook. I just learned today that a general search is on top of the Outlook client only. It was more convenient to have a search box in a folder created in your inbox and in the focused section as well. I work for the Judiciary and this change is not as time efficient as it was before. Plus the general search is saving my searches and there's no convenient option to clear out what I searched previously which looks junky.

  4. missing search bar

    Please reinstate the search email bar. I know you can search using the 'search' menu, but this is FAR less intuitive, more clunky and is really not user friendly in the same way as before. I could just type a couple of letters and instantly my emails would sort by subject, or person or whatever I was looking for. Now, I have to click here, click there etc etc.

  9. The new OUTLOOK.com sucks in so many ways I don't have time to list them all.

    The search perimeters are too narrow, it is useless.
    Since you formed this partnership with UserVoice you have messed this site up so badly it has become a nightmare.
    The "auto population" drop down list for contacts shows up prior to the fist letter being entered.
    WAY TOO MANY THINGS TO LIST, YOU DON'T LISTEN
    IT IS NOT FIT FOR BUSINESS!

  11. Search recoverable items removes Restore option

    If recoverable items are searched and selected, there is no way to recover them because the Restore button toolbar at the top is replaced with one showing the number of selected items.

    The only way to restore items is to scroll through them all manually looking for what you can find and then selecting them.

  12. No way to close settings search match list

    When you start typing in the search box for settings, a match list appears and won't go away until you erase the contents of the search box. It should disappear when you click off or at least there should be an X in the right side of the search box to clear it, like virtually ALL other search boxes on the planet. It's very frustrating to have the match list covering the menu when you don't find what you want, which by the way, is most of the time. The settings search sucks. Needs a better index.

  13. Back button next to adress bar doesn't work.

    I can't use the 'back' button of Google Chrome when I am in my Outlook webmail. I always have to press on an inbox to be able to go back. I can't send a screenshot, but I mean the buttons next to the address bar.

  16. Search more flexibly when using Name only in the Outlook client address book

    It would be great if we can search users more flexibly when using the Name only option in address book. Specifically, enable searching with both Japanese and English, key words other than display names or enable soft-match. Currently we can search display names by forward-matching with using the Name only option from Outlook client address book.

  17. Item selection is ambiguous with search "Top results"

    When searching for emails, some items can appear in BOTH "Top results" and regular results sections. It's possible to select an item that appears in "Top results", and at the same time not select the same item under regular search results, or vice versa. Then the expected result of actions becomes ambiguous.

    For example I often search for a category of emails I want to delete. I would select all results, unselect a few that I want to keep, then click "Delete all". But, if the item I unselected happens to appear in both sections, then it gets deleted anyway…

  18. Show the suggested senders when you search in the shared mailbox

    If you search in the Inbox of user mailbox, suggested senders are shown in the search bar. However, when you search in the shared mailbox, previous search history is only shown instead of the suggested members.
    I would ask you to implement a feature for shared mailbox to show the suggested senders in the search bar.

  20. Bring back hover search of email senders!

    Can't hover over sender of email to search for more emails from that sender, so I can delete them all at once.
    This is a huge time waster for me!
    Why did you change this feature Microsoft??
