  1. "Email can't be sent right now try again later"

    "Email can't be sent right now try again later" can easily be solved by manually typing in the email address rather than using Outlook's contacts - even if the information in the contacts is correct. This problem has been recurrent for years. I have, in the past, seen it in feedback and in forums that are mysteriously inaccessible here.

  5. Rules Performance

    Over time, I've accumulated a lot of rules. The loading of all rules in settings takes up to 1 minute. Approx 500-600 rules.

  6. Outlook.live.com has gotten much less responsive

    Outlook.live.com has gotten much less responsive. The site used to be quick - actions, like delete, would instantly happen. Something changed - selecting a different message, selecting a folder, deleting an item - have gotten slower, sometimes painfully so. This is in new Edge, with all Windows updates.

  9. Keep It Simple, S.......

    Why do I need to have two different outlooks, one for business and the other for the rest of my mail. Then when I delete on Outlook live I need to repeat with outlook on my phone. Please fix office 365 so that I can get all my mail in one place!!!!

  10. Accelerate the time for creating the link when pasting SPO link via Outlook client

    When you paste the link of SharePoint Online to Outlook client, it takes time to generate the link, so I would like you to improve the behavior.
    I believe that Outlook client needs to be improved for its performance as this issue doesn’t occur in Outlook on the web.

  12. email size

    size of email...so sometimes when email is too small to read...there is a small square in the top left hand corner that appears (and disappears...but has a two-sided arrow in it that will increase the size of the email so it is readable. SOMETIMES I cannot find this and cannot read the email. VERY ANNOYING. THIS IS NEW, I USED TO BE ABLE TO READ THE EMAILS.

  14. Delete Button

    Please increase the size of the delete button on the Inbox. It is so small that it is impossible to consistently hit it with the mouse. This is dangerous because if often leads to the unintentional opening spam and other dangerous messages messages. What's more it is awkward and inconvenient.

  15. Unable to Print

    Why are there never any actual answers in the help section. I cannot print, I know I need the "..." button to open a print pane, but it's the print button at the top of that page that is not clickable and stops you from being able to print

  17. Very Slow Signoff

    It takes abnormally long to signoff from Outlook as compared to gmail or yahoo. Is this an Outlook issue or can I do something to improve it.
