  1. Ads

    I do not think ads should be able to track people they way you currently allow . Roger McNamee is right big tech is getting out of hand. Better opt out options are needed
    Thanks Terry

    Hi there – Thank you for using Outlook.com and for providing feedback. I did want to quickly let you know that there are a couple of options for our advertisments.

    1) We offer an ad free experience for our Office 365 subscribers. Not only do you get ad free, but you also get other benefits like the office apps, as well as additional storage on OneDrive.

    2) All ads that show up also have an ad choices icon. From there you are able to opt out of any targeting the ad providers use.

    Thanks

  2. Automatically Block Entire Domain if 3 or More Emails Blocked w/Same Domain

    Automatically block an entire email domain if a user has blocked three or more email addresses of the same domain.

    (excluding major domains like Gmail, Live, Outlook, Yahoo, Hotmail, etc)

    Example:
    adfaqxamafe@uniquedomain.com
    iuyw@uniquedomain.com

    If necessary, include a setting to disable/enable this rule.

  3. Junk Folder Overflowing with Junk

    I have 66 junk e-mails, it's too much to sift through in case a legitimate e-mail was put in my junk folder. Please: if it's 100% certified junk don't even put it in the junk folder. If the system isn't sure, then yeah go ahead and put it in there. You can be pretty certain e-mails like "russian beauty" and "rock hard *****" are junk - I don't even want to read them. Please fix this system it's a glaring issue.

  5. Problem with Subscriptions.

    I unsubscribed individually from dozens of subscriptions in my subscriptions list that I never subscribed to. It took me more than 30 minutes because of the lack of a bulk select button.

    I still cannot unsubscribe from VictoriaHearts 1xwww.gdn or several other craps in my subscriptions list.

    Please stop adding to my subscriptions list without my prior approvasl. I did not subscribe to that .

    Please let me bulk edit my subscriptions list and select which to block after unsubscribing.

    I also could not select by page the dozens of bounceback emails that I received upon unsubscribing.

    Hey all! I’m sorry to hear that you’re experiencing these problems. Outlook does not subscribe you to any subscription emails, so these emails are from other senders who have your email address.

    We do allow you to bulk-select your messages.. above all your emails at the top, there is a gray circle with a check inside it. Click this circle and it will turn blue, and you will select all emails in the folder that you are currently in. See the attached photo for more details.

    You should be able to unsubscribe to these individually by clicking a link on each unwanted email. Alternatively, you can block the sender in settings by going to Mail > Junk email > Block Senders. https://outlook-sdf.office.com/mail/options/mail/junkEmail

    We’ll also be releasing a feature soon which will let you manage all of your subscriptions from inside your Outlook.com account… Stay on the lookout!

  7. How to delete spams with the new version ?

    There is no more "delete" option on the screen when we are in the spam mails. (which means we have to delete them directly from the keyboard)
    In the French version at least.
    Why ?

    Thank you for your feedback. We appreciate that you took the time to write to us.

    You might enjoy the new Outlook experience more with a few changes to your settings, which you can find by clicking the gear icon. Try changing the setting for Conversation view to Off, changing the setting for Reading pane to Hide, and changing the setting for Attachment preview to Off.

    We’re always interested in new ideas, but we need some more specific feedback to fix the problem for you. If you have more detailed suggestions, please update your idea or add a new one.

  8. PLEASE HELP WITH JUNK and SPAM!

    PLEASE HELP WITH JUNK and SPAM!

    I am getting A TON of really inappropriate and obviously spam e-mails. Whatever MSN and Hotmail are currently doing to ensure these do not come to our mailboxes (ANY folder, including JUNK - I DO NOT WANT TO SEE THIS!) is not working. Can I PLEASE speak to someone about this problem. It's been increasing over the last year and I'm really tired of it. It's not appropriate and these are very clearly not "real" e-mails. I do not have time in the day to block individually. PLEASE contact me about this problem. I'm…

    Thank you for taking the time to report your issues with our spam filters, as well as for using Outlook.com.

    I just wanted to let you all know that as of this morning we have made some changes to our spam filters. This should help reduce some of the levels of spam you may have been experiencing.

    Thanks

  9. Why is blocking spam made difficult?

    It's almost impossible to manage spam and unwanted mail unless you are willing to spend a good deal of time searching around the programme and asking for help. No support in particular for blocking domain. Why? It should be made easy unless MS benefits from spammers activities?

    Hey! You can right click on an email and “Mark as Junk” to mark an item as spam.

    If you think an email is a phishing attack, you can open the email and click on the … next to the reply actions in the top right corner. There, you can click “Mark as Phishing”.

    Hope this helps!

  12. Incorrect translation in french.

    There's a wrong translation for french in the spam folder. I guess english label to empty this folder is "Empty folder", which has been translated to "Dossier vide" (means "Folder IS empty").
    Correct translation is : "Vider le dossier"

  20. Where is the block button in junk mail?

    Where is the block button in junk mail? I used to be able to instantly block an address, now I have to open the email, cut and paste the address, and go to settings to block?! I thought updates were supposed to make things easier, not add more work.

    Thanks for using Outlook.com!

    To block a user from the junk email folder, either:
    - Select one or more emails and click the “Not Junk” dropdown in the top menu bar → “Block”
    - Right-click on an email and select “Block”.

    Note: In non-junk folders, the option to block a user is under the “Junk” dropdown in the top menu bar
