  2. REMOVE SIDE ICON

    The new set of side icons with people and word ect is distracting and should have an option to remove, immediately. I don't need to look at green excel icon every time I am on my email. Please have it removed ASAP.

  5. navigation pane

    Make it possible to move navigation pane (mail, calendar, people, etc) back to the bottom. Right now you have taken away all customization options and I can't even collapse it to get it out of the way. I do not need 4 columns when I am just trying to read my email.

  8. Problems with Blocked Senders list and junk mail Filter Options.


    1. The Blocked Senders list puts email from Blocked Senders into my Junk Mail folder, rather than into my Deleted Files folder, due to the differing and changing subdomains that the spammers use.


    2. Outlook does not allow wildcard (*) to block all subdomains from each email domain.


    3. The filter options to block all subdomains from each domain don't work.


    4. How do I block all email with address in the PATTERN of a@a.b.c? Notice that a@a.b.c is a PATTERN, not an email address. An example of a particular spammer's address is holdon@holdon.luxuryzero.com which is in the PATTERN of a@a.b.c (format).

  9. 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…

  11. Block Junk Mail by Sender Name

    Please create an option to block senders by Name (not just by email address or domain). I receive 60 junk emails a day from different email addresses, but often with the same sender name. Blocking the email address and/or the domain isn't effective because the same junk senders have thousands of alternate email addresses. The sender name, however, is consistent (ie: Gadget Junkies, LeafFilter, Walk In Safety Tub, Tommy Chong, Splash Wines, Keranique, etc). Also, adding a Rule to block emails with those words in the subject line or body doesn't work because Rules aren't applied to junk mail (another…

  14. I want to be able to write a rule for blocking junk emais.

    I think if I could write a rule that allows me to block spam emails, I could block most of my spam emails in my junk email folder. It is this or Outlook needs to quit allowing spam emails into my account. I want to block all emails not on my safe senders' list.

  15. Do not start telling me what to write when I am writing an email.

    My idea is to let people write their own emails without providing intrusive suggestions. I've been writing for over 50 years and I don't need any help from a computer.

  16. Outlook Folders and Incoming Mail column width settings do not shrink.

    Folders and Incoming Mail column width settings do not shrink.

    Previously I could adjust the width. You have now made a fixed field.

    Space to read mail is reduced.

    I'm trying to read the posts on the right in the narrow space. On the left is the incoming mail - outgoing information part and it remains wide.

    For detailed information, please read "Case #: 1019548761" in "Outlook.com support".

    Yours truly

  18. Too much obvious spam in junk folder

    Too much obvious spam in junk folder, making it difficult to spot genuine emails. This has only started happening again recently. Revise incoming spam filters, something has gone horribly wrong.

  19. New side bar ribbon with Calendar, Office, and other icons

    I have been informed by customer support that this new addition cannot be removed, and as I don't need to use any of the icons it takes up unnecessary space on my screen.
