  1. Don't hide buttons under "..." menu if the screen allows to show all of them!

    Screen width is 1900px, why you show only like 6 buttons in the top toolbar and hide everything else? My screen width is enough to show ALL buttons, so show ALL of them!

  5. Received Before Rule Criteria

    The Received Before Rule in Outlook is broken. It does not allow any date before the current day's date. This should only show up for Received After. Not Before.

  6. Many loops to get right time zone at first setup

    Why is it so hard to get the right time zone when first setting up an account? It's a "required" task and a terrible introduction. I change the General setting to UK time, but it sets the Calendar work time to UTC+0. Then I can't change the Working timezone. Unless I change the General timezone to something else that's wrong. Then If I change everything back, in the right order, eventually I get there. Sheesh.

  7. Keep Hotmail/Outlook unexpired for months since library internet access is stopping due to coronavirus library closures

    Please keep my Hotmail/Outlook account open for a lot longer than 30 days. This is because of the coronavirus. Right now Hotmail/Outlook expires if not used every 30 days. However, I don't have internet at home, and libraries where I get Hotmail/Outlook are closing indefinitely. So I may not be able to access Hotmail/Outlook for a long time. So please keep Hotmail/Outlook open for several months until I can access it again. Thanks.

  8. Shouldn't Need to Link to LinkedIn Account to See LI Profiles

    The sender card in a suspicious email gives the option of seeing LinkedIn profiles. When I click "show profile matches", I'm prompted to connect my Microsoft and LinkedIn accounts. This gives LinkedIn all of my contacts. I have deliberately NOT given LinkedIn all of my contacts. I know Microsoft bought LinkedIn, but it's a bad idea to require this. Among other things, how will you distinguish between work contacts and personal contacts? I don't want my boss knowing I dated his cousin.

  10. New user option for handling Junk Email folder content

    The following is a suggestion for a new feature. Some questions were posed by a Microsoft rep and my answers are included in what follows.


    1. (Q) Are you using the Windows mail app or the Outlook email application which comes with Office 365/2016/2019?
      (A) I am using Outlook web-based email. No software was downloaded to my device for me to be able to use my email.


    2. (Q) What devices are you using to access your emails (PC / I Pad / Phone)?
      (A) Only PC with Windows 10.


    3. (Q) What is the affected email address in the question? Please elaborate…

  12. Hotmail programmers think they know what's best for me when they do not

    My settings are not given when clicking on setting pane, most frustrating..I only use Hotmail when someone from work insists. I would like to forward all hotmail to my Gmail...this is because hotmail is so presumptuous. I don't appreciate the way hotmail programmers presume to know how I want my mail organized! It is messy and makes it difficult to catch important mail :(

  13. Spam blocking options reduced

    Why did you remove the option to block only the part of the email address that comes after @? Now, the only option given is to block the whole email address from an undesired sender.

  19. Celiac is a real word

    Celiac is a real word. As in, celiac disease. It's NOT celeriac, the vegetable. Could you please stop underlining celiac in red?

    Furthermore, "Tell us what you think" is not a great way to say, "Please put title here."

  20. Use the same icons and illustrations as Outlook Android and iOS apps.

    Currently, Outlook.com and Outlook Android and iOS apps use different icons and illustrations.

    But, it would have been great if Outlook.com was consistent with the design of its Android and iOS apps too, especially with the icons.
