  6. I hate the way that you have changed my email screen, please can you change it back again and perhaps ask in future if I need to change it.

    I hate how you have changed my outlook screen. Please can you put it back to how it was. Perhaps you had better ask first in future before you change my things.

  7. dark mode issues

    The overall issue is darkmode is very hard to work with as a developer, until recently we could override certain things that were breaking but the recent update adds !important to the inlined styles so we can no longer fix the bugs it causes.

    A few of the bugs that we’re facing include...
    Light colours are adjusted but dark are not, leading to a lack of visual structure where contrast is being used.
    When dark text is applied to a light background image the text is made light but the background stays the same making it very hard to read …

  8. Outlook/Hotmail adding "folders" on its own to email?

    Where did this "Files" come from between my "Favorites" and my "Folders"? I don't need or want Word or Excel templates.

  11. Folder panel on the left doesn't stay open

    The folder panel on the let is closed by default and doesn't stay open when opened. This takes me two clicks for a folder change. Please add an option for that.

  14. Folders on top

    I use my email to do email. I never use it to look for files. Why would I want a list of Files at the top of the screen? Why are my actual email folders (you know, like my Inbox) hidden below this? I close the Files list but, of course, will have to close it again next time and every time. I understand I could simply look below the file list, but I shouldn't have to. This is stupid interface design choice. What comes next? Putting my Junk folder above Inbox?

    The Favorites list is on top, but that's…

  15. Left Pane items

    Dear, I just LOVE Outlook and would certainly not want to change to another mail provider! Had Hotmail/Outlook since the beginning and planning on continuing! Yet, to be completely satisfied, I would like to submit the following issue:
    Left Pane items: I would like to be able to select whether or not "Files", "Groups", "Archive", "Notes", "Conversation History", "Feeds", etc appear (as I DON'T use them and they take unnecessary space, plus they are annoying). If not possible to remove the "Files" and "Groups" items, could they AT LEAST have a function to STAY COLLAPSED (also really annoying to have…

  17. Folders ... Folders ... Folders !

    More the time goes, more you add folders without giving the user the ability to inhibit/control them. How about in the Advanced settings, a section specially for the Folder Settings ? ... would be definitely great. Thank you for your understanding.

  18. How do you turn of the new file feature

  19. strict inbox, most good email in junk, gets deleted in 10!?

    So email that I delete from junk stays in the deleted folder. But email that is automatically deleted from junk after 10 days cannot be retrieved in the deleted items folder, which has resulted in me losing important emails. I keep inbox strict, so most of my mail starts in junk, and then I place it in the inbox or folders as required. Now if I am on a 2 week holiday and miss opening junk email I would have lost 4 days of email by the time I would check. So either allow us to set time for junk…

  20. Process customers hotmail rules before built-in junk mail filters

    This has been suggested, but has not been implemented. It's fine that you want to minimize junk by filtering it out to the junk folder, but this also prevents user rules from being effective. I want to DELETE any/all emails with keywords KETO or CBD. When you move them to the JUNK folder, it precludes my ability to delete. Don't override user's rules just because you process them first. Process user's rules, and if they aren't processed, THEN you can apply your built-in filters. PLEASE ACT ON THIS QUICKLY. It has been suggested long ago and is about time to…
