  4. I hate the way that you have changed my email screen, please can you change it back again and perhaps ask in future if I need to change it.

    I hate how you have changed my outlook screen. Please can you put it back to how it was. Perhaps you had better ask first in future before you change my things.

  6. Quick Steps or Quick Actions

    On outlook 2016 I have set up a quick action where I can create a calendar or task directly from an email, copying all the content of the email to the event/task details. Could this be implemented onto the site ?

  9. Block Sender

    You marked "completed" the "Block Sender" item that had over 1100 votes and many more comments. The solution you gave does not work when the email is already in the "Junk" email folder. Right clicking on items in the "Junk" folder opens the email. It does bring up the "Block" function, but still opens the email. Again, your solution addresses emails that are not already in the "Junk" folder. Please reopen this issue and give us a way to block emails without having to open them if they are already in the Junk folder based on your spam criteria. This…

  13. Keep Sorting when navigating between folders

    When coming back to Inbox from another folder, the e-mails are no longer sorted by Sender, and revert back to default sorting by date. I want Outlook.com to remember how I want my messages sorted in each folder.

  14. dark mode issues

    The overall issue is darkmode is very hard to work with as a developer, until recently we could override certain things that were breaking but the recent update adds !important to the inlined styles so we can no longer fix the bugs it causes.

    A few of the bugs that we’re facing include...
    Light colours are adjusted but dark are not, leading to a lack of visual structure where contrast is being used.
    When dark text is applied to a light background image the text is made light but the background stays the same making it very hard to read …

  15. html signature

    Easily add a html signature in outlook.com and mobile outlook app so signature looks the same regardless of the device i'm using to send e-mail. Currently, I can only add a HTML e-mail in outlook desktop app.

  17. Files Folder

    The Files folder is now expanding by itself upon opening Outlook and causing everything to be slow to load.

  19. 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.

  20. Change it back so that email replies originate with the email address the email was received to.

    I have two accounts that I use from my main hotmail account. Whenever I reply to emails received to my secondary account, I have to change the "From" email address back to my secondary email EVERY TIME, when it used to automatically use the address that the email was originally sent to. It's very annoying, and wastes a lot of my time, and is confusing for my clients when they are getting emails from my main personal account, instead of my work secondary account.
