  1. Default Safe Senders

    DEFAULT SAFE SENDERS
    I would like to see everyone on my contact list automatically be added to my safe sender list. If they weren’t safe I wouldn’t have them set up as my own contacts. This should be the default in the system.

  3. Emails in RULES sent to JUNK folder, repeatedly.

    If an email has a rule, "move the email to a folder" why does the JUNK filter continuously dump them into the junk folder? How much code does it take to "check the rules" before "engaging junk engine?"

  4. Stop leaking Primary address when sending from Alias

    Remove Primary email address from the email headers when sending from a verified Alias. This leak of information removes most of the reason for having an Alias in the first place.

  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. Agenda pane options

    Please allow me to switch "Agenda Pane" on or off in "Settings." I know a lot of people like it but I don't use it and it makes my calendar too narrow. It is especially annoying when it opens just to tell me I don't have anything going on that day. I am smart enough to read my calendar and figure that out.

  11. Multiple Calendar Reminders

    I am looking at Office 365 as a viable alternative to Google Apps. One of the most useful features of Google Calendar is that I can have multiple reminders specified. So for instance my default is to receive a reminder 2 weeks ahead, 1 week ahead, 2 days ahead and 2 hours ahead.

    I can only see an option for one reminder on the Office 365 calendar and can't see how to add more. This is a serious omission. A basic calendar requirement in my opinion.

  12. 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.

  13. What happened to blocking domains automatically

    There was a great feature that let you choose to block the entire domain when you chose to block an email. This was great because I used to have to go through the blocked senders list one by one adding the bad domains. I thought it should have been expanded so that if you chose to block a domain, it automatically deleted all emails from that domain that was in your mailbox.

    Instead of expanding the functionality, it looks like it has been removed. Bring back the option to flag email as Junk, block it, choose to block the domain,…

  14. Block email address containing emoji character

    Spammer email address includes emoji character which stops them from being added to my contacts and/or blocked.

    Example of spammer: CBNl.🎈@ee-business.com

  15. 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

  16. Recover deleted outlook.com aliases

    Users should have a period of time - a week would be enough for many people - to undelete aliases that were deleted from accounts (often by kids on xbox.) When an account is closed, users have 60 days to change their mind - they should have a similar option when aliases are deleted.

    For an example of the problem this will solve, see this thread, https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/outlook_com/forum/all/my-hotmail-account-was-deleted-while-my-son-was/2250b864-3712-4813-b736-e896e8146c25

  17. Automatically add a Teams call to each new meeting in Outlook

    This may be more appropriate feedback for Exchange, but it would be great for inclusion if there were a policy available to automatically add a Teams call to each new Outlook invite. Meeting organizers could remove the call in rarer cases where it's inappropriate to be able to join remotely, and fewer folks would forget to add a call because it is done automatically.

  18. Difficulty signing out

    I have a terrible time signing out. I click on my picture about 50 times and "sign out" every time lately. A pop up interrupts. Why??

  19. outlook premium

    I was an Outlook Premium subscriber for years. So disappointed that I can not renew my Outlook Premium without getting Office 365. I DO NOT need Office. I just need an ad-free Outlook mail. Hope it will be offered again in the near future before I take my mail elsewhere.
