  1. "Your Office 365 subscription is about to expire"

    ... in AUGUST of next year... over 12 month from now. Plus clicking on this notification instantly turns on auto-renewal without asking for confirmation.

  4. custom domain

    Currently, with personalized email (which is a great feature!), you can only add one email address from the premium interface.

    This is pretty restrictive because people buying custom domains often have a few (firstname@mydomain, firstname.lastname@mydomain, ...)

    Aliases defined with the custom domains works (outlook.com will deliver the mail to the proper mailbox) but you cannot add those after you enabled the custom domain. Email validation will fail, since the address is not configured yet (egg-chicken problem)

    On top of that, when sending mail from such aliases, they will appear as being sent on behalf of the primary email adresse

  5. iCal refresh interval

    First of all, impossible to send new feedback, because the list is unscrollable.

    Two, I really need iCal subscriptions to update instantaneously, and not after 24+ hours. I almost missed a very important college semester project workshop today.

  6. Allow customizable retention policy for Deleted Items

    As far as I understand it, the Deleted Items folder in outlook.com has a default retention policy of just 10 days, which is not very long at all. And it's not possible for the user to change this.

    When outlook.com provides us with a massive 15 GB of mailbox space - even more if we have Premium - there's no reason why we shouldn't be able to store our Deleted Items emails for much longer if we wish to. Previously I've used the Office 365 Business service for my email, and I had a 1-year retention policy for my Deleted…

  7. Changes underperform. Give me my money back!

    Once again, MS Outlook fails with their upgrades. Lots of silly bells and whistles with more clicks and drop-down menus to navigate. Toolbars are diminished, minimized, or relocated to inconvenient places. SAD. Productivity lags from the former INDUSTRY-LEADER in digital office productivity suites.

  9. Let me link my Office 365 subscription to my outlook.com account to remove the annoying adverts and prompts

    I already pay for Office 365 but as that isn't linked to my Microsoft Account, I still get annoying adverts for Office 365 when I'm using outlook.com to check my old mailbox (hotmail.com address)

    Please let me link the two together in some way so that I dont' get asked to pay for Office 365 every time I use Outlook.com.

  11. Where can I get a full set of instructions for OutlookOnline that I can print out and read all at once?

    I am a subscribing member. Where can I get a full set of instructions for OutlookOnline that I can print out and read all at once? This would be much more convenient than hunting through thousands of postings and all sorts of useless FAQs so I could both be able to use the full capabilities of the site right off the bat, or look up a solution for a particular problem in a timely manor!!!!

  16. Love the Encryption feature

    I love the premium encryption feature but would love to add a feature where the message expires after a certain period of time (just like google's feature.)
    Also, since Google's Gmail is offering this feature for free, why don't you also offer it for free. Really think you need to step up.
    This have me considering if I should begin forwarding all emails to my Gmail account just so I have this feature.

  18. SUBSCRIPTION

    Hi guys... Good day there... I do am really impressed by the huge improvment you did in Outlook email functions and efficiency.. I would like to subscribe for one year BUT I AM NOT INTERESTED ACTUALLY IN OFFICE 365... The reason is that OFFICE 365 doesn't work locally in a pc, is that right ? Does it work when "offiline" ? is it installed locally on a pc or it is ON THE CLOUD office suite ? Tell me, please... I will be waiting your kind reply.. Best regards and again congrats for the improvement you did in Outlook functions…

  20. Password Keeper

    It would be great since users have to sign-in in order to access their email via a computer, it would be great if outlook also had an encrypted password locker for the authorized user of the email, plus secondary security measures as well. That way users can keep track of all of the many passwords that they need and use in relation to their respected sites. This feature should only be available online for now and eventually can expand to the mobile access.

    Thanks Microsoft for your consideration of this idea.
