  2. Provide option in settings to share junk mail report with 3rd party

    Please provide option to share junk mail report with 3rd party in the settings. I would turn this off as I still want the junk mail even though I have it filtered from the inbox using Outlook's algorithms. By automatically sharing the report, some 3rd parties stop sending E-mails, which I still want as they get my interest from time to time.

  3. "this isn't spam" - doesn't work

    "this isn't spam" - doesn't work.

    If I get an email from a particular sender/domain that is sent to the Junk Email Folder - then if I click on "This isn't spam"
    then Outlook should stop putting subsequent emails from the same sender in the Junk Folder.
    I know I can add manually to the whitelist, but this should be automatic.

    Even though I received a message from you yesterday saying this problem is now closed, blocking is still not working.

  6. Unable to synch outlook from windows phone for the last 2 weeks

    I know Windows mobile is dead, but current windows phone is useless- it won't synch outlook, or log onto windows store.

  7. IMAP does not work at all

    Synchronizing other mail accounts using IMAP does not work properly. Mails are received with huge time lag, syncing back the status like mail being read does not work, and - worst of all - mails deleted in Outlook Live are not deleted on the server. Unbelievable!

  10. Prompt which folder sent messages should be saved to

    By default sent mail is saved to the Sent folder. This results in messages being distributed across two folders. When a message is sent I would appreciate the option to determine which folder it should be saved in, keeping all correspondence on the matter in a single folder. Thank you.

  11. anonymize feedback

    I don't want my full name showing for feedback. For emails, yes, feedback no. I am also a windows insider, and they have always truncated my last name. I know you aren't probably the same co. collecting this, but follow their example

  12. Change Two-step verification

    The SMS sending option cannot be eliminated from two-step verification. I use the same tool in many other services like Google and they let me choose which method I prefer. Especially since I have read that, although it is very safe, the SMS method is more vulnerable to an attack than, for example, Google Authenticator appp, which is what I use in my account. Also, I have used a security key in my account as a login method but I wish to establish the key as a second factor method since using only the key is more vulnerable if I…

  13. Cannot access calendar or onedrive in the helpful way it was. Now rubbish!

    Change of accessing calendar onedrive etc tabs - have to use a menu with surely the most used thing - calendar - being off menu so you have to scroll down - then doesn't open automatically in another tab but opens instead of email. Terrible change. Put it back to how it was - working and useful!

  15. Make it easier to add event from Indico

    I uses Indico a lot. And there is a button on the bottom right allowing me to add the event to my Google calendar easily. Maybe you can help Indico people to add the option for Outlook? Indico is an open source software, so you are welcome to help. I considered doing it myself, but I don't really have time to do that....

  16. 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

  18. Crop Picture Function in Outlook

    Would recommend adding a crop icon/function to Outlook mail edits. Currently, there is no function to crop pictures on Outlook mail when replying or sending mail.

  19. The new email got slower

    Why do I have to wait to empty my folders, like junk mail? Can't you do that server side?

  20. Flagged message issue

    I don't understand how this passed your beta testing... But, this seems like an obvious UI failure: the "quick" icons on each message in the inbox (flagged, move to trash, move folder, mark as unread, etc.) move as you hover over them!

    For example, in the default view, there is a red flag on a message. As you hover over the message, the full set of custom icons appear, causing the flag to move position. As a result, the obvious expected behavior of "click on the red flag to unflag a message" causes you to click on some random button…
