  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  6. 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

    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

    David Los

  7. Advertising

    Please add a "deactivate all" button to the advertising companies selection!

  8. Kudos

    Since this time last year hotmail has certainly gotten better. I have several different email accounts with other entities and I must say your sign-in is the best. Don't change it, there's absolutely no reason to...

  9. Update Outlook so that email addresses with abnormal characters (not "special" or normal) can be blocked by command and rules.

    There is A LOT, and I really mean A LOT, of spam mails that use email addresses which include characters that we don't normally find anywhere in ASCII. We need Outlook to become able to block and IMMEDIATELY REMOVE email addresses that include non-ASCII characters, very badly.

    These email spammers are willing to make any nonsense character be inserted into the sending address at any cost, just to waste space and time.

    Thanks for your feedback! In order to log out, click on the profile icon in the top right corner of the window. This is a round icon with either your profile image or your initials.

    When you click this icon, a pane will expand. “Sign out” is one of the options on this pane.

    As of yesterday, the Contact Picker dialog has been returned to an alphabetical A-Z sort order. As many comments show, lots of Outlook.com users are already seeing the fixed behavior. If you do not observe this in your Outlook Web session, you will need to refresh your browser (or maybe even clear your cache).

    Again, the sort order not being alphabetical A-Z was always a bug and was never by design.

    You may be interested to know the next item on our plan for the Contact Picker: Soon, there will be a way to type letters and by so doing filter the list down to matching entries. This means you shouldn’t need to scroll over and over, in the future.

    Thanks for your continued support.

  15. No logout

    Log Out does not show in drop down box - I have to exit by hitting the Outlook address block which still leaves me signed in.

  16. 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.

  19. 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.

  20. Block unwanted mail

    PLEASE add BLOCK to the Delete Box. That should be so easy for you to do.
