    Hey there, I understand that we’re having sporadic problems with sending email, specifically that they are being moved to the Drafts folder but don’t seem to be sending.

    One reason why this could happen is if your account becomes flagged for suspicious behavior. If you find yourself in this situation, please follow account verification instructions that are shown on the draft.

  2. Deleted items re-appearing

    Getting really sixk of deleting emails only to have them reappear multiple times.

    Hey there, I understand we’re experiencing some issues when composing and trying to send an email.

    This happens when the Outlook Web session you’re running loses connection with the server. It’s an issue that we are actively looking into right now.

    Some comments mention that disabling your antivirus software might make the problem go away. I want to clarify that we do not recommend this solution.

    Thank you for your patience.

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

  8. 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.

  9. 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.

  10. 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 ?

  12. 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.

  16. 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.

  17. React to window width. Be a responsive web page.

    Not good if you want to view in snap mode or on smaller widths as you've not included a responsive design.
    To actually use some features you have to view the website and on smaller devices it makes sense to cater for this.

  18. Items deleted still show as unread

    If an e-mail was read only on a single click and deleted, it still shows as Unread in the Deleted Items folder. It makes more sense that it shows as Read?
