  2. I hate the way that you have changed my email screen, please can you change it back again and perhaps ask in future if I need to change it.

    I hate how you have changed my outlook screen. Please can you put it back to how it was. Perhaps you had better ask first in future before you change my things.

  3. New Search bar location doesn't work for me.

    I really don't like the new location of the Search bar in Outlook. I wish we had more control over these things. Not every idea is a good one and Microsoft's propensity for trying to control everyone's user experience is what drives users to Apple.

  9. Allow "Like"ing emails

    Many emails that land in my inbox do not require me to respond. However, the sender may still want to know how well the content of his email is received by me and other recipients.
    The visibility on no. of likes on an email can be kept private to the sender in the MVP. The recipients need only to see a "Like" icon toggle with two states - "Liked already" and "Yet to be liked".

  10. Terminology confusing on Move to and Copy to <folder name>

    "Move to" then changes to "copy to" and it is confusing as to the operation being performed. When you choose to "Move to" for an email, the pull down box then changes to "Copy to" <folder name> and it is confusing terminology. Is the email being moved to the new folder completely? Or is a copy being moved and the original left to clutter up the inbox as well? Since I don't see the email still in the inbox, it does appear to be acting as a Move but it is confusing terminology since Move means "move to new location…

  12. dark mode issues

    The overall issue is darkmode is very hard to work with as a developer, until recently we could override certain things that were breaking but the recent update adds !important to the inlined styles so we can no longer fix the bugs it causes.

    A few of the bugs that we’re facing include...
    Light colours are adjusted but dark are not, leading to a lack of visual structure where contrast is being used.
    When dark text is applied to a light background image the text is made light but the background stays the same making it very hard to read …

  13. Outlook/Hotmail adding "folders" on its own to email?

    Where did this "Files" come from between my "Favorites" and my "Folders"? I don't need or want Word or Excel templates.

  14. Recover deleted outlook.com aliases

    Users should have a period of time - a week would be enough for many people - to undelete aliases that were deleted from accounts (often by kids on xbox.) When an account is closed, users have 60 days to change their mind - they should have a similar option when aliases are deleted.

    For an example of the problem this will solve, see this thread, https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/outlook_com/forum/all/my-hotmail-account-was-deleted-while-my-son-was/2250b864-3712-4813-b736-e896e8146c25

  16. Junk Filters

    Your junk filters are so incredibly bad that I have to now send everything to junk and filter out from there. Wonder how and when outlook turned out to be so disappointing that now I have to look at using other email providers !

  17. Folder panel on the left doesn't stay open

    The folder panel on the let is closed by default and doesn't stay open when opened. This takes me two clicks for a folder change. Please add an option for that.

  18. Mobile Hotmail slow and glitchy

    Mobile version of Hotmail is very slow to load and is very glitchy - keeps freezing - when using on both Chrome and Safari. Not interested in using app as a work around.

  19. Allow disabling IMAP on Outlook.com accounts

    You can disable POP but not IMAP right now. It would be nice to also have the option to disable IMAP.

  20. Folders ... Folders ... Folders !

    More the time goes, more you add folders without giving the user the ability to inhibit/control them. How about in the Advanced settings, a section specially for the Folder Settings ? ... would be definitely great. Thank you for your understanding.
