  1. Mutiple attachments at once, misses out the last one

    When I attach multiple files in a single e-mail, very often, the last one fails to get attached, even though it shows up as attached when i'm on the composing screen.

  4. 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.

  8. BLOCK EMAIL ADDRESSES

    BLOCK EMAIL ADDRESSES - The option to block junk email addresses used to be on your menu along with Sweep, Move to and Delete. An update you made 1-2 years ago removed this, making it MORE cumbersome to block bogus email addresses. Now I have to (1) select one or more email addresses, (2) right-click, (3) then select Block. Please restore this to the menu bar.

    Hey, thanks for your feedback! You can currently do this from the menu bar. When you’ve opened an email (or selected multiple), click the “Junk” dropdown button in the command bar. You can find this button below the search bar, next to the “Delete” and “Archive” buttons. Then select “Block” from the menu that appears below the “Junk” button.

  9. Blocking e mails by domain and sender should be quick and easy-its not. Please put the 2 options together, ie block send and or domain.

  12. Don't Like Delete Icon 'popping up' in the Inbox, when the deleted email is reachable in the Deleted Folder.

    I don't like the feature that 'pops up' (on the "Inbox") when one deletes an email. (It states: "Deleted" and "Undo".) It is very distracting and hides / covers up upcoming emails on the Inbox list. - What is the purpose to retrieve it (deleted email) from our regular 'delete folder'? WE CAN JUST GO TO OUR DELETED FOLDER. - If you were to find a way to bring up deleted emails (deleted from the delete folder) that would be a good feature. But to have an icon pop-up in the Inbox with every time we click to delete an…

  14. Rules Not Working

    I have several emails that are supposed to go to specific folders, but here recently I see them either in my inbox or in my spam folder. Why aren't my rules working anymore?

  15. No way to block unwanted email/domains

    Please correct the junk email box icons to allow customers to put in block emails and save them. The save icon does not work at all.

  16. Cannot block multiple spam emails at once

    This seems like it should be a simple fix. There is clearly a massive issue with the amount of spam that is sent and the amount of spam that gets to recipients. While it is probably useless to try to block sender accounts because they will simply change a few characters and keep sending away, for hotmail to not bother having the option to block multiple spam emails at once seems to be willful ignorance to the problem, or laziness as to not implement a solution. If there are legitimate reasons to as to why the issues is still not…

  17. SPAM!

    The amount of annoying pop ups trying to push new "features" feels very untrustworthy. Mail services should not be confused with social interactive sites.

  19. Put the "Today" and "Yesterday" sections back

    You need to put "Today" and "Yesterday" and "This month" back to where we can see it in the emails. Why did you change it? I scroll right past it because it looks like an email. Just put it back the way it was. This makes NO deliniation between yesterdays emails and today's.

  20. Folders disappearing

    The folders list has evidently been 'enlarged' to the point that 'conversation history', personal folders like 'temp' and the 'new folder' tab all at the bottom of the folders list are now non-viewable...can you IT people not come up with a better solution to whatever it is that you're trying to do?
