  1. 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…

  2. 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!!!!

  5. How can I stop Outlook from typing guesses at my words when I am writing an email?

    I want to be free to compose my own email without having some 'thing' guess at what I am going to write. It is very distracting having this 'thing' type where I am typing.

    Please, please stop it!

  8. outlook display formatting

    Make the format for outlook email more changeable and flexible, it's at the mercy of the browsers. Allow menu bar adjustment or removal.

    And get rid of this feedback system it is unbelievably obtuse.

  9. rearrange rule

    Easier way to rearrange rule, move up a rule with higher priority.

    I have some 400 rules in my outlook. I access them through Edge browser. when I have to move a rule to the bottom, I need to click the button 399 times. Can we have a slider or a number and send a rule to bottom quickly.

  14. Folder collapse

    My folder pane is now automatically collapsed due to my screen size - according to you. My screen size has not changed in several years. My zoom level has been 150% for several years. I don't want it collapsed. I want my folder pane visible at all times regardless of the screen size.

  17. [Dislike]:Please stop "keep signed in " tick box.

    Please stop the "keep signed in tick box" you already asks to stay signed in, so once is enough. No need for me to tick another box.

  20. Add a reminder for when a meeting series is ending

    When you setup a meeting series you have an expectation that it will end at a certain time, but often it changes: maybe project timelines got extended, or you will remain in the same team for longer, or you decided to extend the timelines of a mentorship. It is however not obvious that the meeting series will end, and since you have set it up long back you will not realize it until you miss one or a few occurrences. This may also lead others to think you wanted the series to end, even if you didn't.
    Very simple solution…
