  1. Need the backup mail-layout restored!!!!

    What happened to this backup site -- https://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/p/?linkid=853938 -- which until now had allowed me to restore the "classic' look of my email layout, with less space between entries and the ability to "copy" messages from one folder to another?

    The backup link has always worked until just now, since getting it from Support several months ago. And I want it back, PLEASE! The current layout -- which I've complained about many times in the past -- remains AWFUL and the loss of the "copy" function is frankly unforgiveable (it's still available on the "OWA" version of Outlook that I…

  5. PREMIUM PROTECTION

    Office 365 real time protection slows my progress down, and the 'eur3' (whatever it's called) link either doesn't let me access links (like 'unsubscribe') w/ in emails, or has runtime errors and makes the suggestion that I should shut the (eur3) page down.

    If I turn it off, will my mcAffee software kick in and find threatening links w/ in my email?

  11. Failure to delete

    Delete does not work on mobile. I am using Chrome on mobile (both Android and iPhone have the same issue) and whenever I delete, either swiping to the left of each message or using multiple selection deleted items keep on appearing when I reconnect. This has been going on for a very long time now.

  14. errors of calculation statistics required

    sum error was observed when I quickly calculated an amount on a spreadsheet and used Microsoft excel and LibreOffice calc.

    I assumed it was a typo but it is worth logging as it might be a result of an odd visibility errors.

    ERRATA CORRIGE

    Any idea how to correct errors of logic?

    A mathematical analysis is required with adequate statistical analyses.

  15. Can't scroll through folders anymore

    On the left hand side, the first scroll bar is so close to the second that it can't be used at all. That means that you can't scroll down your folders at all.

  20. Intellectual Property/Microsoft Feedback...

    I am somewhat aware of this but only somewhat agree. If you put yourself out here, if you take the risk of sharing your idea with a company and they use that idea and the implementation attracts and/or retains new business customers (already difficult with Microsoft considering their sheer size of business utilization - but do consider individual consumer (personal email) utilization, you may risk your own intellectual property rights. I am not an attorney. I'm also not a non-attorney spokesperson. I'm going to look at it this way. If I share something with Microsoft and they utilize that to…
