  1. [Suggestion]:It is kind of frustrating that it is not possible to clear suggested search.

    Dear

    In the Outlook app, I see people in my "contacts" menu that are not in my outlook contacts because they are empty.
    I think this has somthing to do with a "suggested search" cache that I'm not able to delete. This is really ennoying..

    For instance when I type some letters of the alphabet in the search bar, some people pops up under the title: "suggested search", that I send a mail years ago.

    Even if I delete all emails that I sent to people, they still are in "suggested search", but only the mails did disappear.

    I hope…

  2. [Suggestion]:Ability to Remove or Clear autocomplete suggestions

    Need ability to CLEAR or ELIMINATE address suggestions that are filling up with SPAM email addresses, while keeping the autocomplete list. Please allow this just like you do the autocomplete addresses - it's too easy for older folks to accidentally engage spammers!!!!

  3. [Suggestion]:Delete unsaved contacts

    I would like to have a way to delete e-mail addresses in my list of contacts in Outlook online (so not in the Office program). There are a lot of e-mail addresses in that list of people I once mailed, but whose addresses I would like to delete since they clutter the list. When I select one or more, the option 'delete' is grey and can therefore not be chosen.

  8. Date format is ignored when displaying birthdays

    I chose in the outlook.com settings to show dates as 01/09/2021 for Sept 1st (European DD/MM/YYYY format). However, this setting does not appear to be applied when displaying the birthday of a contact - I see 8/1/1950 for someone who has their birthday on August 1st. When I edit the birthday, it shows correctly as August 1, but when in the normal view, it swaps the birthday to the US format MM/DD/YYYY

  9. Birthday import uses wrong date format, mixes up MM/DD with DD/MM

    I'm based in the UK, where we use a DD/MM/YYYY date format. I've exported my Outlook (desktop) version contacts to a CSV file. Someone with a birthday on Sept 1st shows as 01/09/1900. Now I import that contacts CSV file into the "People" section in web Outlook.com. The person with birthday on Sept 1 is all of a sudden swapped around to have a birthday on Jan 9! All birthdays where the day is >12 are completely ignored, and I had to add them by hand.
    All this happens even though I have changed my date format on outlook.com to…

  12. [Suggestion]:How to sync outlook contacts on android phone?

    How can I sync outlook contacts on android phone without having google account. I know there is a one time method to export contacts from outlook to csv file and then import them into the Contacts app. But how can I enable synchronization so whenever I add a new contact to outlook it will appear in my android contacts or another way around adding contact into my phone will appear in my outlook people list.

  15. [Suggestion]:limit search to contacts in my contacts lists

    Hi,

    When I search for someone in Outlook People or in the To field of a new e-mail message in Outlook Mail (or even the search bar of Outlook Calendar), a number of contacts/e-mail addresses appear I do not know:

    Image

    Where do they come from and how can I avoid these names to appear?

    Kind regards

    Stijn

  17. Is there any way to communicate with someone at Microsoft who knows what they are doing?

    I was referred here by Microsoft Support when they couldn't help. The outlook functions are causing mail on my iPhone to frequently freeze and my contacts list to drop large numbers of contacts and then recover the missing Contacts after I reboot the phone. Apple insists that this is an Outlook problem.

  19. "Recent People" list naming

    The title of the "Recent People" list that shows up when you left click on the "To" field during a new email draft is somewhat misleading. While the list CAN be a list of recent people, it would be more accurate for it to be a phrasing something along the lines of "Frequently Contacted" instead, since the Autocomplete cache is run on a weighted system and the suggestions listed from a single click are what the Outlook heuristics determine are the most heavily contacted individuals in the Autocomplete list. Right now there is room for misinterpretation for "Recent People" to…

  20. .wab file import

    Create the possibility to import contact information from an old .wab file (from Outlook Express) into Outlook.com.

    Alternatively, provide a simple utility to read .wab files and output the information into a .csv file, which seems to already be supported for transferring contact information.
