  1. View the auto-complete suggestions in the To field by specifying the certain condition

    It would be great if the auto-complete suggestions in the To field could be more focused by specifying the certain condition.

  2. Extra page to sign in to e-mail is annoying and inconvenient

    Why do I have to be taken to a new pop-up webpage when I want to sign in to my e-mail? Please change it back to having the login screen come up as soon as you go to the website. Much more convenient that way.

  4. Folder panel on the left doesn't stay open

    The folder panel on the let is closed by default and doesn't stay open when opened. This takes me two clicks for a folder change. Please add an option for that.

  5. Send blocked emails straight to deleted items instead of to junk mail folder

    Send blocked emails straight to deleted items instead of to junk mail folder. There are 2 options, to mark as junk or to block, yet both put the emails from that domain or sender into the junk folder. It makes no sense to have 2 different options that do the same. If something is blocked, it shouldn't ever appear in junk mail or the inbox.

  7. [Suggestion]:limit search to contacts in my contacts lists

    Hi,

    When I search for someone in Outlook People or in the To field of a new e-mail message in Outlook Mail (or even the search bar of Outlook Calendar), a number of contacts/e-mail addresses appear I do not know:

    Image

    Where do they come from and how can I avoid these names to appear?

    Kind regards

    Stijn

  9. [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.

  12. Create a recurrent event on the multiple random dates at once in the Outlook Calendar

    I would like to create a recurrent event to select multiple random dates at once. Because we don’t want the event to recur in regular cycle.

  14. Need Safe Sender Button

    It is NOT functional that, every time I want to add an email address to the Safe Sender list for an email that has ended up in the Junk email folder when it is NOT supposed to be there that I have to (1) highlight and copy the email address, which often takes a few times because of the automatic pop-up that occurs when you hover over the address; (2) click on the settings button; (3) click on View All Outlook Settings; (4) click on Junk; (5) click on Add; (6) type or copy and paste the email address in;…

  15. Edit/Disable cache of email addresses entered

    If I make a mistake when typing in an email address, Outlook caches it somewhere and then I'm unable to edit my mistake. Forever, it keeps suggesting (and trying to autocomplete) using my mistakenly typed address.

    How about just using MY ENTRIES in PEOPLE, and stop presuming you know what I want or need?

    I want to be able to edit/delete what's in that cache of addresses, or at least toggle whether or not Outlook uses that.

    Lack of ability to control this behavior will indeed drive me to a competing product for email.

  16. Why does Outlook not block all emails not on the safe sender's list

    On my blocking junk emails. Why does the blocked senders and domains file only save what the dropdown on the tool bar blocks? I feel if I go to the trouble to manually block junk emails into the blocked senders and domains list, those I put into it should remain blocked forever and not be released to inundate my email account over and over. I feel I am being jeopardized with my safety and privacy by Outlook allowing junk emails into my account. WHY DOESN'T OUTLOOK WORK TO BLOCK ALL EMAILS THAT ARE NOT ON A USERS SAFE SENDER LIST?

  17. [Dislike]:KEEP PHONE CALL VERIFICATION OPTION FOR MICROSOFT ACCOUNTS

    I regard to: "Say goodbye to phone call verification, hello to new options" ("Update your Microsoft account verification options to sign in smoothly"):

    PLEASE DO NOT GET RID OF PHONE-CALL VERIFICATION!! I am UNCOMFORTABLE in having to settle for the other options that you offer!
