  1. Swipe interaction between email and list view

    I would love to be able to swipe left to right on trackpad to go back from an email to the email list. Currently i have to click back on 'inbox' to return from looking at an individual email.

  6. Deleting items

    I would be more than happy to delete 10's of thousands of emails from my inbox, but the delete feature is wholly inadequate! If I search for a source (e.g.,' Travelzoo") for which I know there are thousands of emails, I can only delete the 75 that appear on my screen. If you want us to be responsible and delete unwanted emails, please provide way more powerful tools to us!

  8. POS Website

    Why did you code the website to be so slow? I'm getting ready to setup a forward to gmail because this site is almost unusable.

  11. nothing

    Outlook/Hotmail is the worst app I've ever used (I'm currently using it for professional reasons on my iPhone as well as my macBook). It's bulky and does not function properly most of the times. Just today it didn't load at all. Besides, on an iPhone, it doesn't pre-load the messages, i.e., they always have to be downloaded. Additionally, there is no way to change (edit) an e-mail once it's been placed within the "To" field. That means we always need to remove the e-mail address and type it in again, letter-by-letter. What a nonsensical waste of time. There is no…

  12. Mobile Functionality on Safari is Brutal

    Mobile Website
    -Poor Functionality
    -Desktop View on Mobile Safari Necessary.

    The mobile website on safari is absolutely disgusting. Makes me sick. Microsoft is a Tech company, yet their email does NOT function well on a mobile device.

    A Desktop Mode is 1000% necessary as the functionality is unacceptable for a company like Microsoft.

  13. Waste of time

    I am a user of Hotmail since 1999, but these days, the operating system of Outlook take huge time to respond to the click or the order of key. It became worse and worse. Moreover, the writing in Japanese gives a pain in waiting time, owing to the delayed responses of choice of characters.
    Please ameliorate the Outlook system so as to respond even much quicker to the choice of key or the click, in eliminating the non-sense pop-up publicities of 1 000 GB which waste the precious sequences of time. Thank you!!

  14. 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.

  15. 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.

  17. 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.

  19. 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.

  20. 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.
