  1. 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.

  3. 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...

  7. Search feature should default to showing all messages without having to choose addressee

    Search feature should default to showing all messages without having to choose addressee. As it is I have to select an address each time, which is pretty idiotic, since in 99 cases out of 100 I want to search among all messages in a folder. The option should be there, but the default should be that search doesn't need it specified.

  8. 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.

  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. 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

  13. 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…

  14. 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.

  15. Search bar

    I need an option to disable the "Delete button" from the search bar, sometimes I delete some contacts by mistake and that's annoying. Thanks.

    After sorting my emails by alphabet how do I move to a specific letter group. Previous version allowed me to bring up an alphabetical listing and click to go to a group of emails starting with that alphabet.

  20. Can't select emails from only one of the amazon.com email addresses, it grabs everything

    I'm trying to select only a certain set of emails from store-news@amazon.com but the search is like, "OH THIS IS AMAZON.COM I'LL GRAB EVERYTHING" and it's making it hard to just mass delete ads but save order confirmation and tracking info that comes from a different email
