  2. Too much junk / spam: Junk folder becoming to inundated

    20 year user moving to new platform. Flooded my junk box with advertisements now I have to search for any emails that may be of value to me that don't automatically filter to my inbox. It's a shame.

    We’re sorry people are experiencing issues here. We have gone back to the old behavior for the left-hand folder tree to always show since last year and we hope this has addressed most issues.

    There are some reports in the comments about individual folders not showing up. In order for us to get to the bottom of the issue, please post as much detail as possible in your comments. What steps are you taking? Which browser/computer/operating system are you using?

    Thank you for your help.

  5. Please allow us to get rid of this 'Conversation History' folder. I have no use for it and it just takes up space.

    Allow us to remove the 'Conversation History' folder. I have no use for this and never will. Please allow us to delete it.

  6. email deletion

    EMail Deletion

    Why can't I delete the emails showing on the panel vs having to delete my entire Inbox?? I don't like having to click each one seperately.

  7. schedule sending email

    Hi,

    I'm surprise that this feature is not yet in Outlook. I would like the possibility to delay sending email to a specific time.

    Thank you

    I’d like to give everyone a somewhat complete update on this feature request.

    The feature “Undo Send” has been available on Outlook.com for a while now. With it, you can set a small delay of up to 10 seconds when sending all your email messages.

    Additionally, we plan to make available a bigger feature that is along the lines of “Schedule Send”. At the moment, I cannot provide a time estimate for when it will show up for you. However, we’re very excited and hopeful :)

  8. Mail > Subscription

    Hotmail/Outlook- Mail > Subscriptions > I can not delete newsletters I did not subscribe to
    Under my settings>mail>subscriptions - there is a ton of newsletters/junk email/spam that I never added and can not delete. I don't know how they got there and how can i remove them.

    Image

    No matter what I've tried to delete these it doesn't work - spammers latched themselves this way?

  9. Find all emails from a sender

    I frequently get multiple emails from a sender in one day or daily emails from a sender. In the previous version, I could hover over the first line of an email in the Inbox and a context menu would appear. Then I could select "find" and handle all emails from that sender from the results screen. I don't see how to do that in the beta.

    I'll probably have to leave the beta version because I can't do this type of "find".

    Thank you for your feedback! This feature is planned and will come to the beta in a future update. We will reply back when it is available.

  10. Switch between accounts

    I have 2 Outlook.com accounts, 1 Office365 account, and 1 Gmail account I'd like to access through Outlook.com. Please allow me to switch easily between these accounts. I should be able to log in once, and link all of these together, and then switch between them easily. Currently I need to sign out and sign in to switch.

  11. Junk e-mail: block e-mail addresses using wildcards (eg *@*.can

    Junk e-mail: why can't you allow the user to block e-mails using a wildcard and only part of the e-mail address? I receive, EVERY DAY, emails from pharmacy<something>.can and I want to block *@*.can instead of wasting my time to block every single instance, every single day

  12. 2 options for 'select all' checkbox: Select All in view vs everything

    In the old view I can select all, and have it select only the visible messages. With this new beta select all seems to select my entire inbox. I would like both options.

  13. Reply using correct "from" address when hitting reply, reply all, forward etc.

    In the beta, when you reply to a message, it sends the message reply back to the recipient using the primary alias as the "from" address. The non-beta version 'remembers' which address the person sent the message to, and sets that as the "from" address in the reply. This behaviour is essential for ease of email management when multiple "from" addresses are available. Also, it should be a lot easier to always see whop you're sending an email "from" when you're replying/forwarding etc.

    I can see that there is a setting for "always show from" in the beta settings but…

  14. Mark as phishing

    There is no option to mark something as phishing. You can only mark something as "unwanted" (translated from Danish). Even clicking on this is not removing the mail from the inbox folder.

  15. Stop thanking us for reporting phishing scams every time we report 1. After being told that reporting phishing scams helps once, we get it.

    Stop thanking us for reporting phishing scams every time we report one. After being told that reporting phishing scams is helpful the first time, we get it. Needing to close that pop up every single time is I report a phishing scam is highly annoying.

  18. Set email reminders on events

    Please restore email reminder functionality to calendar! I rely on this to keep track of my schedule and I'm now using Google calendar because I can't get this Outlook.com beta to send me email reminders.

  19. Marked "Not Junk" email in junk folder

    When I mark emails in my junk folder as not junk, Outlook should remember this, and not keep putting the next emails from this sender in the junk folder

  20. The "Top Results" items when searching aren't sorted by date, which is confusing.

    It appears the Top Results items are sorted algorithmically based by relevance (?), but that ends up being counterproductive - especially when I know I want the most recent response to a set of threads with a unique keyword.

    I've found myself searching multiple times and overlooking the result because it is at the bottom of the Top Results list even though it is the newest reply/thread.

    You're already pulling out these as the most likely results - I don't see the benefit of sorting such a short list by relevance vs. something like date.
