    Hey, thanks for the feedback!

    Is it possible that you’re accessing OWA from a different browser each time you’re signing in? The “Keep Me Signed In” feature will only work if you access from the same browser on the same computer in normal browsing mode.

    If you access in private browsing mode, it will not remember your “Keep Me Signed In” preference.

    Alternatively, if you clear your cookies, it will not remember your sign in preferences.

    Can you give us any more details about what’s going on?

  7. 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.

  9. Leave Blocked emails as blocked.

    Please stop putting the entire list of Junk mail for the month on. I delete all mine and block them, why are they then showing in their hundreds each time I log. The new Outlook is very bad and should be put back to the original one, so called progress is not always good!!!

  13. Forcing Manual Synchronization with Connected Accounts

    Please add an option to manually force a sync of connected accounts. Currently, you have to wait approx 15 minutes for the automatic sync. If you wait for an urgent email of a connected account then one better uses the connected account itself.

  18. Account recovery

    Please expand the account recovery form to include more questions, & thus more chance to recover an old account. Questions like "(apprimately) when was the account made", "(appr.) when did you last login", "from which email accounts did you receive emails" and "to which accounts was your email linked" would be helpful. I know the last two are less reliable, but maybe make them 'weigh' less importance to compensate. And maybe allow for a 5~10% window on the "when" questions if theyre more than 2 months ago.
    Lastly, it would be really nice if it were possible to speak to…

  19. Disaster

    The ads on the right are a nuisance. It is too cramped and complicated is right! And very difficult to find the thread of my email messages. Also attachments are hard to find. In short a true disaster. Take me back to the old outlook please. Help!

  20. Ads on bottom pane obstruct my view of full email preview & email itself.

    The feature to move the ads to the side part of Outlook.com is currently not available. Make it available again. Every time I am reading a email, I have to slide the email to the right in order to finish reading it or C the date because I don't have enough space and I don't wanna use the focus email
