  1. Automatically detect time in appointment

    Whenever (any program) I add an appointment starting with "9:30 x" or "16:20 x" I want this converted to "x" and starting at time 9:30/16:20 (Google Calendar can do this quite will)

    I think AI can do this as well ;-)

  2. 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!

  3. Calendar last day of month;Email xref or crossfile

    Hi I would like to bring up 2 matters:
    There needs to be a facility in Outlook Calendar to set future events on the last day of the month, no matter the number of days in the month
    Second, I and many others would like to crossfile or cross index some of my emails. This could either be by copying the email to another folder or as in Google Photos enabling emails to be in multiple folders/albums

    Thank you

    Hi,
    Message 'Thank you for your feedback. We'll use it to improve Outlook.' after sending feedback is hardly visible in dark mode. Almost no contrast between font color and background color. Observed in Default theme | Dark mode.

  13. No Confirmation for New Password

    I was prompted to change my Outlook password after 72 days. I did this on my iPad. I unknowingly made a typo on the new password I chose. There was no field to reconfirm the new password, so I didn't know I'd made a mistake. Once I'd set up my new password, I had no way of knowing my new password due to the typo, so I had to go through a long process of recovering my account and resetting my password again. Please add a field to confirm a new password, to reduce typo chances.

  14. View replies

    When viewing a message that I replied to, it shows me that I replied - that's helpful. However, I can't click this to see my reply. Maybe I want to add to my reply, but not fork the thread. It's painful to have to search sent items all the time.

  15. Too much simplification, not enough customization

    Why is outlook so terrible now? It was nearly impossible to set up my email properly in the Outlook 365 app and is actually impossible using outlook.com. I have a gmail account set up by my company, but we send outgoing emails through a different SMTP server and using our domain email address. This is properly set up in gmail and was easy in older versions of Outlook. I was able to do it in Outlook 365 with much effort to circumvent your automatic setup. However, I had hoped that connecting my gmail with outlook would automatically use the same…

  16. be able to set up automatic delete of emails in certain folders based on time periods

    Hotmail, years back used to have a setting to schedule, to periodically empty certain folders automatically based on certain time period like every 6 months. this prevents your storage capacity to exceed your limit, have cleaner folders and browse your emails faster. this feature has been eliminated in recent versions of outlook.com. please restore. thank you

  17. Fake "New Browser" Notification

    There's a banner at the top of my outlook.live.com page saying "The new browser recommended by Microsoft is here. Download Microsoft Edge." I HAVE Microsoft Edge. I'm USING it to look at that page. If it needs updating, that should happen through the browser, itself, or through Windows Update (or possibly the Microsoft Store). Please stop spamming me with fake "notifications."

  18. Use Tighter Spacing

    Require 'Use Tighter Spacing' button similar to the outlook app. The compact display is not compact enough, there is a lot of blank space between email lines, even with message previews etc set to off.

  19. Outlook.com email now unusable on Android tablet

    New layout of mail on outlook.com in now completely unworkable on my Android tablet. There is only a 1/16th inch space to type. It is impossible to see what you are doing. I cannot send a new email, reply to an email or even forward an email. The keyboard now takes up all the space except the the 1/16th inch space mentioned above. It worked fine until you make the mobile experience look the way it does on a desktop. I don't know why you would do this. Very frustrating.
