  2. 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

  3. Calendar events only display as dots on the date of the event; there is no event description

    Events on the calendar do not appear as text, only as several dots.

    Hey all, sorry to hear that you’re having this issue. The calendar events will display as dots when you are in the month view and your browser window is too small to display each event for each day.

    You could try making your browser window larger, so that more events can be displayed.

    Our teams are also investigating whether they could display more events in that space as well… we’ll keep you posted!

  5. Multiple Calendar Reminders

    I am looking at Office 365 as a viable alternative to Google Apps. One of the most useful features of Google Calendar is that I can have multiple reminders specified. So for instance my default is to receive a reminder 2 weeks ahead, 1 week ahead, 2 days ahead and 2 hours ahead.

    I can only see an option for one reminder on the Office 365 calendar and can't see how to add more. This is a serious omission. A basic calendar requirement in my opinion.

  6. Scroll bar design limits accessibility

    Scroll bars are far too narrow, and making the bar mostly invisible makes it incredibly difficult for people with limited eyesight to see, and the tiny size can make it awkward to select.

  7. Select checkbox

    The Master checkbox used to only select what was on my screen, this made it easy for me to clear batches of email quickly. Now, the checkbox selects everything in a folder, even if I've not had a chance to see it. This is not helpful at all.

  9. 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.

  10. Restore ability to create alias with hotmail.com -domain

    Years ago it was possible existing users to create alias with "hotmail.com"- or "outlook.com" -domain. Now it's only possible to create alias with "outlook.com"-domain.

    However new users (becoming Microsoft Account users) can choose their first email address between "hotmail.com" or "outlook.com" domains. I think this is unfair!

    Please, give existing users ability to create new aliases with "hotmail.com" -domain so users can choose between "outlook.com" or "hotmail.com" -domains.

  13. 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.

  14. 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.

  15. 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 ?

  17. Show total number of items in folder (like in desktop Outlook)

    In Outlook 2010 and later, users can choose to display the total number of items in each folder (rather than the number of unread items). Please add this feature.

  20. Desperately need a way to reorganize the folders in outlook.com

    Would like a way to re-arrange folders, current their is no way to organize the folders position, when you drag a folder it only allows it to become a sub folder, but I want to move the positions of the parent folders. such as Inbox, Custom Folder, Achieve, Custom Folder, Deleted, Junk, etc.
