  1. Enable DKIM for Office 365 Home / Microsoft 365 Family mailboxes with a personalized email address

    The Office 365 Home / Microsoft 365 Family subscription has a premium option which allows you to use your own email domain.
    However, there is no option to enable the DKIM security measure in the premium interface for your own personalized email addresses / own email domain.
    Without DKIM, outgoing email often ends up in the recipient's Spam folder, because the mail is not signed and authenticity can not be verified.

    Can you enable the option to enable/configure DKIM in the outlook.com UI for Office 365 Home / Microsoft 365 Family subscribers?
    (just like you enabled the personalized email addresses…

  2. Slow web interface

    Outlook.com works well as a mail server for MS Office Outlook. However, as a web based application, it is very slow and cumbersome. I would prefer a more streamlined and snappy interface.

  4. Hide Specific Spelling/Grammar Suggestions

    I want an option to hide individual spelling/grammar suggestions. I disagree with one of the suggestions and don't want to see the blue underlines. They are distracting.

  5. Allow "Like"ing emails

    Many emails that land in my inbox do not require me to respond. However, the sender may still want to know how well the content of his email is received by me and other recipients.
    The visibility on no. of likes on an email can be kept private to the sender in the MVP. The recipients need only to see a "Like" icon toggle with two states - "Liked already" and "Yet to be liked".

  7. Bring back the previous method of spellcheck. I hate that dropdown box with every other unneeded choices.

    Just bring back the previous method of spellcheck. I spell a word incorrectly, I right click over it, spelling choices drop down. I click on the correct spelling and the word is corrected. That function seems to no longer be available!

  8. Automatically block sender and ip when message is marked Phishing

    Microsoft's software engineers are smart enough to make this simple line of code happen - Automatically block sender and ip when message is marked Phishing, so that users' junk boxes don't get unmanageable by the quantity of junk that gets through. The time it takes to look up the sender data, copy the ip and paste it into the blocked sender panel just gets too long when you are dealing with 20+ junk messages at a time.

  9. Quarterly recurrences for appointments, meetings, and/or tasks

    Outlook recurrence patterns currently include "Daily", "Weekly", "Monthly", and "Yearly". Can a "Quarterly" recurrence pattern be added? This would save time having to manually insert reminders in the calendar each quarter.

  10. What happened to blocking domains automatically

    There was a great feature that let you choose to block the entire domain when you chose to block an email. This was great because I used to have to go through the blocked senders list one by one adding the bad domains. I thought it should have been expanded so that if you chose to block a domain, it automatically deleted all emails from that domain that was in your mailbox.

    Instead of expanding the functionality, it looks like it has been removed. Bring back the option to flag email as Junk, block it, choose to block the domain,…

  11. Multiple Proofing Language at same time in Microsoft Editor

    As it is now it only possible to select one language at the time for spelling correction in the Microsoft Editor. I'm writing emails in both my own language och English and want to be able to use spelling correction for both without having to go to the settings and change every time I'm going to write an new email in an other language than the last email.
    This feature exist for example in the Office desktop applications and Chrome web browser spell check.

  14. New design with reading emails

    With this new design when I read my emails in Inbox and click on the Inbox to check other emails it puts me on top (newest or oldest depending on my sorting preference) of my emails again. It is so annoying and not user friendly. With old desing was easier to check and read old emails because when I clicked on the Inbox it put me back to the email list with curzor on the read email. Was much easier to search for old emails and read them. Could you please change to old design back?

  15. Change the organiser/admin of existing Outlook appointment series

    This would be helpful in case someone leaves the company or changes his function internally and has reserved certain meetingrooms with an appointment series. Right now the current organiser has to cancel the series and at the same time the other person who takes over needs to send a new invitation. However there are always problems with this method and it's quite time consuming to copy the series manually. Would also be a nice feature to have for general appointments.

  16. Shared calender functionality lost

    An update as changed functionality in my 1 shared calender that I have (for family events). There is no longer the option to change the 'charm' or colour for the shared calender? on my own calenders I have the 3 dot menu option, but on the shared calender, it is not there. So I cannot set the charm or colour to what it automatically used to be when I create a new event. I have to change it manually each time.
