  2. Hotmail is stripping all my font formatting

    With the stupid updates MS has made, Hotmail is stripping all my font formatting so I can't figure out what I marked! And this is with BASIC stuff, not specialty choices. I hate MS!!!

  3. New failure in outlook

    Deleting a mail after reading it in the Junk Mail folder (cannot be sure about Inbox yet), results in a blank screen reading "select item to read" as opposed to going back and displaying remaining mails in folder.

  4. Undo button hovering over next email on the preview pane is annoying. Move it to a bar or somewhere less intrusive.

  5. The New Outlook's Display of the E-mail Contents

    The New Outlook's Display of the E-mail Contents with MOBILE browser access to Outlook Live Mail:

    Hi Microsoft Outlook Developers Team,
    I would like you to change the way how the individual e-mail message contents are presented and displayed BACK AS IT WAS. I'm afraid you ONLY followed yet another TOTALLY UNWANTED (and unreasonable as well!) feature that was introduced by Google's Gmail long time ago(!), and which exactly was one of the MOST RELEVANT few reasons for me to stop using their mobile web access to Gmail etc.!
    At this moment the newly introduced display of the e-mail contents…

  8. Hidden senders

    When I hover over the sender's address in the Inbox it shows me the actual address. Lately I notice that for spam, it does not show anything. Apparently I can buy a service whereby my address is hidden when I send SPAM

  9. More bugs in Outlook Mail!

    New Inbox changes : Why did the updates alter the set-up of my Inbox task bar on the left side? The Inbox tab under Favorites disappeared completely!?!? When I then went in and added it back to the list, the Junk Email tab gets preferential placement at the top of the drop-down menu. WHY?!?!

  10. problem with my mailbox

    There is a paper clip button in the hotmail.com webpage mailbox. You can view the attachments that have been sent. I have deleted those messages, but they still exist in this paper clip. At the same time, the file cannot be opened and downloaded.

  12. Difficult to use the mail in my mobile

    Why on earth did you change the mobile version? It was working very fine before. Now it is very difficult to read and some functions are no longer available. For example, it is not possible to move mail from junk mail to inbox. No I have to go on my computer to use Outlook.

  13. Outlook for IOS does't work properly with Outlook.com

    It's really a shame. After using Outlook since the 1990's I have had enough. Enter a new contact into the Contacts app on your iPhone and it appears at Outlook.com on the web, but does NOT appear in contacts in Outlook for IOS. Enter a new contact in Outlook for IOS on your iPhone and it appears on Outlook.com and in the Contacts app on the iPhone, BUT if you then close everything and go searching for it in Outlook for IOS, only the first phone number shows up. At the same time, the whole thing shows up in the…

  16. Junkmail

    The last few days absolutely no mails are directed to junk. When blocking it only results in a message that future messages will be re-directed to junk, so they are not really blocked. What has happened?

  17. Help Control Junk Mail more easily.

    Junk Email - Safe Senders and Domains.
    Allow domains to be simply the rightmost characters rather that characters to the right of the '@'. This will save having to enter multiple domains for the same organisation. i.e. Domains 'email1.ryanair.com, email2.ryanair.com, email3.ryanair.com, change.ryanair.com etc.....' ALL belong to simply 'ryanair.com'; and they create new, additional domains, which drop into Junk because they have not been defined. Good idea don't you think ?

  19. Creating a contact from an existing email fails to update the email list icon and sender field

    I received an email from someone I know, their email address starts with a 'w' and in outlook.com the icon with the either the contact pic or initials next to the email has a W. I then choose to make a contact from this email and provide a first and last name, I would expect the symbol and sender fields in outlook to update to the initials and the senders real name not the remain as 'w' with the email address as the sender but this did not happen.

    If you click the contact icon and choose the contact field…

  20. Can't enter an email with only the keyboard after years of patiently waiting.

    I've been avoiding outlook's email interface for many years now and the main reason is still the reason. I can't READ and email or even get into it with only the keyboard. EVERY OTHER email client I've ever used and maybe every email client that has ever existed you just hit enter on the keyboard and you're in the message. When I hit enter on an email in outlook nothing happens. AFTER TEN YEARS?
    That's crazy. keyboard shortcut popup says enter or "O" should work but neither do. I can't understand how this has been so long and still after…
