  1. Slow web interface

    Outlook.com works well as a mail server for MS Office Outlook. However, as a web based application, it is very slow and cumbersome. I would prefer a more streamlined and snappy interface.

  3. Safe senders don't work

    Safe senders, doesn't work. Even though I have had several emails with this person before, now my rules want to override that and delete the email. Shouldn't it be the other way around and have safe sender override my rule? What if the sender uses a keyword that is a rule to delete, I don't get the email?

  9. Can't send emails

    I send emails for two days now. I can receive and compose, but when I push send, I get a message that the server won't allow it. I have used Firefox and Google. Are they blocking Outlook, or is Outlook pushing Edge?

  11. "Email can't be sent right now try again later"

    "Email can't be sent right now try again later" can easily be solved by manually typing in the email address rather than using Outlook's contacts - even if the information in the contacts is correct. This problem has been recurrent for years. I have, in the past, seen it in feedback and in forums that are mysteriously inaccessible here.

  15. Spam Fighters Crashes Outlook

    When responding to a spam fighters email by clicking the junk/not junk buttons, it opens the spam fighters tab and immediately crashes my Outlook email. I then can't access my email at all for hours, sometimes all day. I have contacted the support team on Twitter who directed me here.

  16. Mouse navigation buttons

    Mouse buttons no longer seem to allow back/forward navigation through previously opened emails or folder.

    Used to be the case, that once finished with an email, you could use a mouse "back" button" to return to previous email or previous folder, but this no longer works.

  18. Autocorrect

    Please introduce option to turn the autocorrect on and off. I find it an insult to my intelligence. I can type well; I can spell, and my grammar is good. It is hugely intrusive and irritating.
