  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. New search bar, please put it back....

    The new search bar in the April 2020 release of Outlook for Microsoft 365 has been moved to the very top of the window and with that also made smaller.

    The new interface location makes it

    A.
    Harder to get to with mouse. More unnecessary mouse drag...

    B.
    Smaller to get to and 'hit'

    It's a regression in design and I kept giving negative feedback through preview builds so I am surprised others did not do the same (I rarely give negative feedback)

    Hope you can come up with something...

  3. 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.

  8. 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.

  9. 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…

  10. 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??

  11. 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.

  12. Navigate back to search

    Hi, it used to be that when a search was made, we could view one of the messages, and the navigate back to the search. Now navigating back brings us to Inbox, and I need to do the search again to view another item! This is really annoying. Also, undo send feature is gone.

  13. The search feature is very inconvenient for older mails

    Bring back the option of finding emails in different folders and not just all at once. Highly inconvenient

  14. Search does not work correctly

    I did a search on "John", looking for an email I sent to . I was on the Inbox when I initiated the search, and the search filter was set to "All folders". Search found his name and email address, but found no email, which makes little sense since he is not in my People. I clicked on the Sent folder and did the same search on "John", and it found the name/address as well as the email.

    What testing are you doing on features that something this obvious isn't found?

  16. Search is useless

    Search is useless. I've searched for portions of strings that are clearly inside HTML portions of my emails and the search UI fails to find them.

    Example. I see emails from American Airlines (HTML format, not attachments) containing my flight-number. If i search for a portion of that number...search can't find it.

  17. Search Old / Older email

    I am wondering where some of my older emails went to. I know I didn't delete them, but they don't show up is search. I'm guessing your software deletes emails that are older than a certain date. How do I recover these emails.

  19. Don't show deleted mails in search results by default

    I'm trying to cleanup my emails:
    1) search for emails to be deleted
    2) delete them
    3) refresh the search : they're still displayed in the search results, this time with the Deleted folder indication.

    I would like to have an option that would allow me to NOT display deleted messages, so that I wouldn't have to select the Inbox folder at each and every research in order to exclude deleted items.

  20. Replying to an e-mail whilst your inbox is filtered to 'unread messages' just deletes the message.

    Defect alert: Replying to an e-mail whilst your inbox is filtered to 'unread messages' just deletes the message.

    Repro steps:
    1. Filter your inbox to 'unread'
    2. Open a message, push reply.

    Expected:
    I should be able to reply to the message.

    Actual:
    No reply message appears, the message disappears entirely, and the message which was unread is gone from the filter (meaning you need to manually search to find it). You can see something new in drafts, but click on the folder and it gets deleted.
