  1. When typing in an email address or name - Maybe you can delay the search until the person is done typing.

    Writing in an email address or looking up by typing in an address or even typing in a name it take so so so very long. It's worse then watching paint dry. For every character it searches and you can't actually type in the whole address or name before it starts searching. What is it searching for? I'm not sure because I only put in one character.

  2. cannot read entire messages in email

    all these bars to move info around in email is annoying and does not work. I can only read either left side or right side of email. one side at a time, the bar at the bottom of the email is not visible at the beginning so cannot read left and right sides....and the bars to scroll down are not efficient and keep defaulting back to the beginning which is really really annoying.

  4. Terrible. Feels like I'm being forced into paying for more space

    So I'm about to fill up my 15GB quota but you give me no possible way to find big files and erase them... I'm trying with the files and attachments area but it's been stuck "loading attachments" for over 12 hours and won't load 1 single attachment.

  6. Leave the 'To' box until last

    I don't want auto to start on the 'To' box. I like to write my message first, so I don't accidentally send it unfinished, and enter the 'To' last.

  7. Shut off Drafts!

    Can't type anything longer then 15 words before stupid draft needs to get saved. I then have to sit and wait for it to catch up. Any way to shut it off?

  8. Tabs and forwarding

    Outlook is a complete mess. I don't need tabs at the bottom telling me ANYTHING. I need it as it was where I can see the email I am responding to or forwarding right on the screen at the same time I'm writing my note. I don't need you to vet my stuff and prevent me from forwarding something because it came from someone not in my safe senders list (contacts). You caused an emergency because I forwarded something people didn't get because of that stupid interference.

  9. 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.

  11. New Outlook for IPad Doesn't work on older devices

    The new update of Outlook for ipad doesn't work on my older ipad mini. This phased obselence of your email services is wasteful and overall, so super inconvenient that I am going to start phasing out my outlook email because it is now too inconvenient to check on the go.

  15. Windows Sign In Annoying

    Windows sign in: does not remember email address and cannot use keyboard to day OK without tabbing 3 times to select the button. Sign in is more annoying on windows than android cell phone.

  17. changing button text

    When i select all messages in the folder "overige" to delete them, the text "berichten verwijderen" changes into "overige leeg maken". That might have seemed fancy in someones mind, but to me it feels like going back 30 years in software development to times where amateur boys were programming stuff without thinking about the user. Even though i know how this functions, my mind is always first looking for the "berichten verwijderen" button.
