  1. 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…

  2. 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.

  4. auto

    I already know what I mean to say. Please make all auto features optional so they can be turned on/off manually.

  6. Block Junkmail by subject and/or keywords

    I think you should allow blocking junk mail by subject/and or keywords as well as sender

  7. Rules for old messages

    It doesn't seem possible to create a before/after date rule that applies to old emails: choosing a before or after date that occurred before today is blocked).

    It would be helpful to have the option of creating a rule for any message older than a a certain amount of time (For example, every email from a certain sender that is older than a month should be deleted). In absence of that, it would be helpful to allow selection of a specific date that is not today's date.

  8. Advertising microsoft mobile app in junk mail

    Why do you make me skip your ad for microsoft mobile app between every junk email. 50 times a day I have to skip your sales ad. If I wanted it I would have gotten it already. Going to make me switch everything to my gmail after using hotmail since 1998.

  9. 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…

  10. Inbox tabs are amazing

    I love the new Inbox tabs feature. It makes going through my email so much easier and faster. But I saw a message that this feature is going away soon. Please don't remove this feature.

  11. How do you turn of the new file feature

    I want to be able to turn off the new file feature. I don't want my attachments to be randomly selected and displayed. This is not convenient it is an a privacy issue.

  12. 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…

  14. Include an option for borders in outgoing emails

    It would be nice to have an option of making an outgoing email look like it was typed on decorative stationery. Possibly just include an option for a border around the content of the email.

  16. Filter Emails by Date

    The Search results appearing in the latest update are not filtering Newest on Top by date. The email is not in the order. It would be nice if its working good as before the update.

  17. Stop leaking Primary address when sending from Alias

    Remove Primary email address from the email headers when sending from a verified Alias. This leak of information removes most of the reason for having an Alias in the first place.

  19. Show the follow-up reminder to recipients even if they deleted the flagged e-mail

    A sender can send a flagged email to recipients, but if the recipients delete the flagged e-mail, the follow-up reminder won’t be popped up to the recipients.
    So, I would like to show the follow-up reminder to recipients even if they deleted the flagged e-mail.

  20. template

    Why are templates restricted to 32mb in MS Outlook? Can this limit be increased? Is there some kind of extension that can be used with MS Outlook to allow numerous email templates? I really need the functionality of template. Using signature for this purpose is problematic because you cannot employ multiple signatures in an email, so I need to use templates.

    Any insight is most welcome.
