  1. Problem since last update

    I have my settings set for it to open in a new tab instead of a new window when I click on a link. Ever since the latest update, sites that in the past had always opened in a new tab, are now opening in a new window instead. And that new window does not have any menu item up in the top.

  3. DEFAULT VIEW OF THE DRAFT FOLDER

    Once I read an email I move from inbox to the draft folder if I choose to keep the email. The DRAFT folder is now defaulted to show 'receiver' in the left column hence all I can see is my name in each and every email. I like to change this column to 'sender' but I could not find any facility to edit this.

  4. Navigation arrows problem in outlook.

    Since the new windows update, the navigation arrows in outlook (upper right) are hard to use since the area to activate is below the arrow and very small vertical height;. Not how you would expect. Hard to use even when I now understand the problem.

  6. Convoluted interface

    New interface for webmail is a little confusing. It'd be pretty cool to have a "View all mail" feature.

  7. BUG

    FIX
    I decided to to move 416 emails with the word 'Amazon' into a folder I created labelled AMAZON. I performed a search for the word 'Amazon' and I received 250 results. I drag and drop them into my newly created folder. I'm now under the impression I have moved all my emails because what I see in front of me is 'No more email found'. I perform the same search again in Inbox and I get 216 new results. You can see how this is not intuitive to everybody. The only reason I suspected more emails existed was the…

  11. Confusing colour scheme

    Currently Outlook uses the same colour for a pinned message as the currently selected message. This is very confusing as it is not clear which message is currently selected.
    It would be better to use a different highlight other then colour to highlight currently selected email.
    Suggestion: Highlight currently selected email using bold text and or a box outline around the message.
    Using too many similar colours is confusing.

  13. Open Table Reservations

    Hello! I recently made reservations on Open Table and it was automatically linked to My Calendar (which is great!). However, I am not able to switch which calendar the reservation is listed under. The reservation came in under "My Calendar" but I do not share that one with my wife so she is unable to see the reservation without me sharing it. I think that I should be able to change the calendar that the reservation is listed under so that it automatically shows up on the calendar that we share.

  17. Problem with MMS text images received in Hotmail

    Images from AT&T MMS text messages do not display when sent to a @hotmail.com address (@outlook.com works fine). It appears the service sends the images as "inline" when sent to a @hotmail.com address, but as "attachment" when sent to @outlook.com address. The "inline" images fail to display correctly in the Message UI. However, if I select "Forward", then the images shows up! Why are the "inline" images not displaying?

  18. Seperation of email time period rows

    Could the Font color used for the words in the Outlook email rows that seperate emails for 'Today' 'Yesterday', 'This Month' and 'Older' be changed (say to Red), so these words/seperations are easier to see?

  19. Type name@ and then paste domain name does not work.

    Outlook, New message, In the "To" box, type something like "name@" (without quotes). With the text input cursor behind "@", try to paste a domain name like "example.com".

    What you get: the paste content, which is NOT a valid email address, gets treated like it's a valid contact. You are not allowed to paste the domain name after "@".

    What should happen: pasted domain name should be appended after the typed content "name@" and form a valid email address.
