  1. Do not start telling me what to write when I am writing an email.

    My idea is to let people write their own emails without providing intrusive suggestions. I've been writing for over 50 years and I don't need any help from a computer.

  2. The new vertical column on left hand side in Outlook emails, needs to be removed or place horizontally at the bottom. It is very distracting

    The new vertical bar that has appeared on the left hand side in Outlook mail, needs to be either removed or (horizontally) moved to the bottom. It is very distracting and un- necessary

  3. I want to be able to write a rule for blocking junk emais.

    I think if I could write a rule that allows me to block spam emails, I could block most of my spam emails in my junk email folder. It is this or Outlook needs to quit allowing spam emails into my account. I want to block all emails not on my safe senders' list.

  4. Outlook Folders and Incoming Mail column width settings do not shrink.

    Folders and Incoming Mail column width settings do not shrink.

    Previously I could adjust the width. You have now made a fixed field.

    Space to read mail is reduced.

    I'm trying to read the posts on the right in the narrow space. On the left is the incoming mail - outgoing information part and it remains wide.

    For detailed information, please read "Case #: 1019548761" in "Outlook.com support".

    Yours truly

  6. Too much obvious spam in junk folder

    Too much obvious spam in junk folder, making it difficult to spot genuine emails. This has only started happening again recently. Revise incoming spam filters, something has gone horribly wrong.

  7. auto complete

    make auto-complete opt-in instead of opt-out. It is an annoying feature and makes typing emails more difficult rather than easier. I've only just found out how to turn it off. Probably has a use somewhere for some people but for most it is likely to be distracting and irritating. See split-attention theory; models of working memory.

  8. blocking and reporting phishing in one step

    It seems you can either block spam or report it as phishing, but not block and report all at the same time. It would be more effective if you could do both at once.

  13. block

    There should be no limit on the number of email addresses/domains you put in the blocked senders list. I can no longer block anyone as apparently the limit is 500!

  19. Contact Lists

    On the desktop version of outlook I can receive a contact list via email and simply drag and drop it to my own contacts folder.
    We have moved to the outlook.com platform and there is no option to drag and drop already created contact lists! We do not want to create "groups" as our primary function for these contact lists is to simply send emails to outside users.

    Please make contact lists sharable or add the function of dragging a contact list attached from an email to the people section of the web based outlook that does contain a category…

  20. Block spammails alltogether, don't put them in a spambox, and do NOT filter on reputations, but block spam domains and anonymus senders.

    I want ypu to STOP filtering spam mails on their reputation but block them as soon as we report them. Also STOP whitelisting Google ad their mail- and cloud servers are full of spammers, abusing Gmail, Google Forms and Google Cloud web apps to send their spam mails Also block anonymous senders or reject their mails, as spammers mostly use anonymus, spoofed e-mailaddresses. Give us beck the old, better Hotmail spam filter!!!!
