  1. [Suggestion]:Slow emails

    I'm not receiving important emails about the sale of my house for days! They are being sent and not showing up in my email, where are they? They are NOT in focused or other.

  4. [Suggestion]:Outlook

    You really need to fix this. I'm getting sick of seeing this message to not be shown again. Must have been the 700th time I've seen it.

  6. [Suggestion]:A small bug, or maybe mistake on my end.

    The time on my email shows an hour before what the time actually is. It's not a first world problem, but is a little annoying. My time is 4:43 MST and the time in my email shows as 3:43.

  7. [Suggestion]:Loading outlook.live.com

    outlook.live.com is so slow to load.
    I don't have this problem with other sites.
    It should be better than this.
    If you want to lose customers keep it up.
    P.S.
    If you want a titlee make it plain where to put it.

  8. [Suggestion]:Email body text doesn't update after an edit, while sending a saved draft

    Email body text doesn't update after an edit, while sending a saved draft. It keeps showing the old text, and updates after email has been sent. This defeats the purpose of delayed send - as user can't see the new text/or update if required

  10. [Dislike]:Themes are slow to load

    After logging on, outlook switches back to the previous theme. Then after a second or two it switches to the current theme. This needs fixed since it's a performance detail that's very noticeable.

  11. [Dislike]:Bloated

    Microsoft adds more and more useless features every time I visit this website. This website is slow, bloated, and nauseating to look at. I can't click "Junk" anymore, now I have to click "Junk->type". Let's just double all our clicks right now, let's make everything take twice as many clicks. Now imagine how ****** that is, then that's your fault. You are the problem. Continue losing market share to smarter companies while you're at it.

  12. [Suggestion]:You recently removed a great feature

    When returning to inbox list (in web browser) the last viewed message WAS highlighted to aid with navigation. You changed something recently that removed this feature.

  13. [Suggestion]:FIX THIS PROBLEM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    What is taking so long??
    Outlook worked perfectly fine up until just over a week ago - I sent 2 feedbacks about it and nothing is being fixed.
    How can anyone use outlook if every time I read an email and close it I lose my place in the list and automatically get kicked to the very top of the email list???????????????
    Please!! Please fix this.

  14. [Suggestion]:followup to cursor feature suggestion

    followup to the cursor suggestion:
    the cursor option for us to be able to skim a chunk of emails that we deem to be deleted, then a 'hotmail cursor' that we can use to highlight a chunk of emails, and combine with cmd/ctrl to highlight other independent email/chunks at the same time, to then perform a shared action on all these emails eg delete. this process of skimming a chunk of emails then deleting all at once (which happens VERY often) is faster than reading one email, ticking it, moving on to the next, and then deleting.

  15. Generally ok.

    Occasionally, when Edge is open but minimized in the task bar, I click on the icon to bring it up on the desk top, but nothing happens. I have to right click the popout thumbnail and select maximize and then resize it. Just thought you'd like to know.

  16. New "sorting" tabs kill performance

    New tabs? Sad imitation of Gmail. Badly done and you're much too obvious about the real objective of showing more ads. The better to
    ignore you, eh? Why don't you offer actually useful and distinctive features like the "fight-spammer" button to iteratively analyze spam and break the spammers' economic models? Oh wait. It's obvious. Your economic model is broken. Microsoft 2020: Less evil and much less competent!

  20. 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!
