  1. skype

    Please DO NOT include Skype as a mandatory feature. I understand it may help some people to have Skype load upon logging into their Outlook account, but for others, it's disturbing.

    Please provide a way to completely disable Skype's connectivity to Outlook.

  2. Simplify the People/Contacts Editing

    Too complex. Why have separate lists for Outlook, Skype and Linkedin that cross relate, and mean that you cannot edit or correct an entry in any single one. GET RID OF THE "GREYED OUT" ADDRESSES IN CONTACTS THAT CANNOT BE EDITED.

  3. I am unable to delete contact: Make the Delete button in Contacts actually do something. I want to delete old contacts but can't

    It would seem a good idea if the Delete button inthe contacts list actually allowed you to delete contacts that are no longer required.

  5. How do I get rid of Skype notifications

    How do I get rid of Skype notifications? Skype continues to ask me if I want to view conversations even AFTER I tell it to ignore them.
    Specifically if I tell Skype to ignore conversations in one email session it closes the "Notify" box but if I close my email and then open it later on, Skype tells me I have more conversations (which I do NOT).
    Tell Skype to get their act together!

  7. Better skype management : skype on many devices, when they ring at the same time but make it unable to nanswer from outlook in the browser

    Skype have trouble if it is connected on your phone, on your desktop and on Outlook in your browser, to know where you should answer and keep ringing. If this can be improved in the new version it would be great

  10. skype

    Skype not showing upcoming messages.
    Integrated Skype was not working fine in the older version, so I switched to Beta Version. I opened the chat and I cannot even see the new incoming messages.

  11. attachment

    The new outlook beta version seems fine. but I wish the size of the font could be a bit smaller. Also the attachments are shown now in the regular folder which takes up a lot of screen space. Since I use a laptop for viewing outlook mails, the screen space taken for showing attachments are more. If there is an automated option of shrinking the attachment according to screen space, then it would be better.
    Also the skype option is also missing in the new beta version. Kindly include that also.

  16. Skype Improvements

    It's great that skype is finally on the beta version of Outlook, but it still has room to improve.
    For example, the small chat window is unsatisfactory; a better option would be for a side pane to open as it does when you click on the settings button and on the help button (and also the previous version of Outlook). The side pane allows for a bigger, better view of the chat without needing to blow up the zoom level on the page, and allows for better visualization of images and attachments.
    Furthermore, the chat itself isn't yet fully functional:…

  20. accepted skype

    Please add another option so people can select "Accepted - via Skype" when they respond to an invitation to a meeting. This will greatly help organizers to know who will be attending in the room and who will be attending online - which impacts food bookings, room sizes, has time zone implications, etc.
