  3. Filter Emails by Date

    The Search results appearing in the latest update are not filtering Newest on Top by date. The email is not in the order. It would be nice if its working good as before the update.

  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. Show the follow-up reminder to recipients even if they deleted the flagged e-mail

    A sender can send a flagged email to recipients, but if the recipients delete the flagged e-mail, the follow-up reminder won’t be popped up to the recipients.
    So, I would like to show the follow-up reminder to recipients even if they deleted the flagged e-mail.

  6. template

    Why are templates restricted to 32mb in MS Outlook? Can this limit be increased? Is there some kind of extension that can be used with MS Outlook to allow numerous email templates? I really need the functionality of template. Using signature for this purpose is problematic because you cannot employ multiple signatures in an email, so I need to use templates.

    Any insight is most welcome.

  10. 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.

  11. Mail merge using Outlook in Microsoft 365

    I frequently need to mail merge emails and do so easily from the office using Word and Outlook. Currently working from home, I'm unable to do it using the web mail version of my account. Instead I BCC, which results in messages being bounced, blocked and junked.

  12. Allow custom domains to be Primary Accounts when using custom domains and don't force people to have to change their primary accounts

    With the change from the old Premium outlook.com to the O365 subscription based service for custom domains, you have removed the ability to use personal (custom domain) users as Primary Accounts - this is a totally retrograde step and is a massive pain when users who have had very reliable and coherent setups using their custom domains are having to change their Primary Account settings - with all the impacts this has across devices and their user experience!

    Microsoft need to reinstate the ability to have custom domain accounts as the Primary Accounts even when using outlook.com with custom domain…

  14. whitelist

    Suggestion: add "whitelist" to the MS Outlook vocabulary with a link to the explanation of "safe sender" so it can be found more easily when using Help.

  15. Remove the “add gmail account” option

    Please allow premium users to disable the “add gmail account” logo/button. I don’t use it and do not want to lose the screen space.

  16. Server rules don't work over large Inboxes

    I've described this in detail here: https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/outlook_com/forum/oemail-ocleanup/trying-to-move-300000-old-emails-from-inbox-to/f20527c4-221b-4a30-89fa-3b3374bce9cd.

    Due to bad email migration software, I ended up with an Inbox with 20 years of email and more than 350,000 emails in my Inbox. I have tried endless ways to move most of them to the Archive folder, either using the Outlook desktop client or using server inbox rules as detailed on the link without success.

    The server inbox rule approach looked promising with a date period, but I have found when run over large date periods, it runs for a long time (and seems to affect outlook.com performance adversely) and…

  17. Left Pane items

    Dear, I just LOVE Outlook and would certainly not want to change to another mail provider! Had Hotmail/Outlook since the beginning and planning on continuing! Yet, to be completely satisfied, I would like to submit the following issue:
    Left Pane items: I would like to be able to select whether or not "Files", "Groups", "Archive", "Notes", "Conversation History", "Feeds", etc appear (as I DON'T use them and they take unnecessary space, plus they are annoying). If not possible to remove the "Files" and "Groups" items, could they AT LEAST have a function to STAY COLLAPSED (also really annoying to have…

  20. Logout of all other sessions button

    A button which allows one to logout of all other devices easily. Gmail does this automatically upon changing your password, for example.
