  1. All my mails have been blocked

    Please help. All my E-Mails have been blocked, no matter how I keep fixing the option to tell the system those mails should not be blocked in the future. And also, the rules regulation can not function as well, every action will be stopped since the mails blocking. Is it a problem with the Hotmail account? my Outlook account has no such kind of issue.

  2. Emails are listed but the body won't load.

    Emails are listed but the body won't load. I get "your message can't be displayed right now. Check your network connection" It's not that all other programs on my laptop can access via the net.

    Thank you for using Outlook.com and providing feedback!

    To turn off text predictions:
    1) At the top of the page, select Settings > View all Outlook settings > Mail > Compose and reply.
    2) Under Text predictions, clear the Suggest words or phrases as I type check box.

    For more information, please see: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/office/use-intelligent-technology-in-outlook-on-the-web-and-outlook-com-24b30683-8340-4b69-b8ac-4193ec528a70

  6. Predictive text suggestion are a real nuisance

    Eliminate the suggested text that comes up ahead of what one is trying to type. It is a nuisance, distracting and not desired. Users should be able to disable the feature.

    We’re sorry you’re not finding these features helpful. All our intelligent features have settings that can be individually disabled by going to:
    Settings → Mail → Compose and reply, and finding the respective feature.

    From the issue opened here, it sounds like this could be one of two items:

    1) Text predictions: Outlook suggesting words of phrases as you type a message.

    To disable: Settings → Mail → Compose and reply → Text predictions → Uncheck “Suggest words of phrases as I type”

    2) Microsoft Editor: Outlook can help find spelling and grammar mistakes, or suggest alternate ways to rewrite sentences you’ve written by flagging them with an underline.

    To disable: Settings → Mail → Compose and reply → Microsoft Editor → “Microsoft Editor settings”.
    From here you can select which types of corrections/suggestions you’d like to see, or turn them off completely.

  10. Hide Specific Spelling/Grammar Suggestions

    I want an option to hide individual spelling/grammar suggestions. I disagree with one of the suggestions and don't want to see the blue underlines. They are distracting.

  12. 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.

  16. Phishing spanish translation

    You have mistranslated the word "phishing", you have translated it as "pesca" which is the Spanish word for "fishing". Either you put back phishing or you put identity theft, because "pesca" is ridiculous.

  18. Move or hide the "Files" section on the left bar

    The new section "Files" in the left bar (to access fast to the email attachments) should be moved below the main Mail Directories, because the main use of the interface is navigate between mails and not files.

  19. outlook theme colors

    The colors for Outlook are now electric blue and slightly darker electric blue. Why? The Outlook colors were already there. Why remove them? Microsoft seems to take away more and more customer autonomy and personal expression with each update. We need to have themes and/or more colors re-added, please.
