  1. Junk/Spam mail filter/notifications email causing too many redirects

    Junk/Spam mail filter/notifications email causing too many redirects.

    I'm not sure what happened, but someone changed the code that whenever I get the Microsoft email asking if a particular email is junk mail or not, after you respond, several things happen (or don't happen):

    1) it doesn't automatically delete that email anymore

    2) In Firefox, it will open up a new tab, but when you click on "close", it doesn't close the tab.

    3) In Google Chrome and Firefox now, after you select whether the email is junk mail or not, Outlook.com will break and produce an error message:

  3. Option to disable "Recover deleted items"

    You could allow us to not see this link. Every other option has button only, why this link in the top? I just want to empty my deleted folder without seeing links. Tks

  4. Files Folder

    The Files folder is now expanding by itself upon opening Outlook and causing everything to be slow to load.

  5. GoDaddy will never get a dime from me

    Please allow domains from registrars other than GoDaddy to use personalized domains. I would like to switch from GSuite but not remotely enough to use GoDaddy for my domain registrar. There should be no technical limitations here, because it's all just assigning MX records with the registrar. I'm sure you have some sort of business deal with them but it is ludicrous that I am barred from this service because I do not use (and never will use) GoDaddy.

  6. Block Sender

    You marked "completed" the "Block Sender" item that had over 1100 votes and many more comments. The solution you gave does not work when the email is already in the "Junk" email folder. Right clicking on items in the "Junk" folder opens the email. It does bring up the "Block" function, but still opens the email. Again, your solution addresses emails that are not already in the "Junk" folder. Please reopen this issue and give us a way to block emails without having to open them if they are already in the Junk folder based on your spam criteria. This…

  7. No way to sign-out, no Help icon in Outlook.com (even after a couple of months)

    Sign-out and Help cannot be accessed in Outlook.com website in Mail and Calendar, except under People. Is this a bug? How do I sign out of Outlook.com?

  8. Show/Hide Email Addresses

    Make on option to show/hide the sender's full email address below their name without having to open the message.

    Add a toggle switch that will show/hide the full email addresses. Having to mouse-over a contact and wait a second or two to view the alt text is no good.

  9. Clear Suggested Searches History

    Clear Suggested Searches history. The ability to clear this should be available, often contacts I will never ever use again, not needed and just clutter of stuff I don't need to see anymore, one off contacts, junk etc. thank you.

  11. Add a new access to do certain things in the mailbox calendar

    I would like you to add a new access for users to do all the certain actions below in the mailbox calendar:
    add own schedule in the mailbox calendar directly, block double booking, modify exclusive event that he/she created, delete the event that he/she created.
    Or it would be great to have a method to set the above actions for users.

  12. Hate where snoozed is located

    Why did you put the snoozed option where you did? Could you put it somewhere else? I've been using hotmail for over 20 years and now I have to get used to snooze being where mark unread is and it's driving me nuts especially if I'm not fast enough to get past the snooze it automatically brings up the whole snooze ****!

  13. Folders ... Folders ... Folders !

    More the time goes, more you add folders without giving the user the ability to inhibit/control them. How about in the Advanced settings, a section specially for the Folder Settings ? ... would be definitely great. Thank you for your understanding.

  15. "Too Many Redirects" message and I must shut down and restart my computer

    I keep getting the message "Too many redirects" when I try to exit the Microsoft Spam Fighters email after confirming my selection, so I have to shut down and restart my computer to be able to get back into my emails. This will cause me to no longer take the time to respond to the Spam Fighters emails." Thought you'd like to know about this error. I hope you will fix this and let us know that it is fixed, so I can once again give you feedback on what is and isn't spam.

  16. Add Method Of Participation for Meetings

    Have Outlook give the option when Accepting a meeting, if they will be attending in person. I am always needing to know how much catering to order, how big of a room is needed, etc. If when you get the meeting invite you could choose "Accept", then "Attending In Person" , that would be incredibly helpful!

  17. Show an over 24hr event item in the timeline view

    It would be great if you could implement a feature that over 24hr calendar item can be shown in the regular time line when you book it.
    When you create a calendar item which is booked for over 24 hours in OWA/Outlook, the item will be shown in the top of the time line in the calendar view, and it is hard to recognize whether or not there is an event at a glance.

  18. Leave Blocked emails as blocked.

    Please stop putting the entire list of Junk mail for the month on. I delete all mine and block them, why are they then showing in their hundreds each time I log. The new Outlook is very bad and should be put back to the original one, so called progress is not always good!!!

  19. Include the use of emojies in rules

    Give me the ability to use emojis within rules in all conditions and instances. Thees scammers have become creative; using emojis to generate an unlimited supply of phishing email addresses. I'd like to move every email from every email address (using emojis) to my "deleted" folder

  20. safe sender list

    Put the safe sender list on top of the outloo.com website. Reason this item is a setting and I am sure it is used often. The item itself is very hidden. To find it, one must use help and enter : find safe sender lsit.
