  1. 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.

  3. Phishing Flag Increases Junk E-mail

    Junk e-mail increases after I flag items as phishing scams. Yesterday I flagged a few e-mails as phishing scams and today I have about 30 new spam e-mails.

  4. rules that work on spam folder

    I am making tonnes of rules to try to cut down on the amount of spam I am getting. I have dozens of rules, saying for certain words to be deleted, but they are still ending up in my Junk Email. The same words being used over and over in the rules, but they are still going through. So your rules are not working what so ever.
    I was told that the rules do NOT apply to emails that are you already direct to the spam folder, that your "spam" rules bypass any rules we make ourselves. That's rather annoying.…

  5. verification is a pain

    Why do I have to "verify" my account THREE times before I can send an email!!!!
    Twice to even get into the account and a third to send the email! Unfortunately, I entered the six digit number from where the text came from, then tried to reenter the four digit code, not realizing that it was now requesting a new phone number to send another code to. I tried reentering another phone number for a new code and it tells me that I have exceeded my attempts for verification and to try again tomorrow!!!
    I will never set up another…

  8. "Rules" aren't working!

    I've set up multiple "rules" to reduce Junk Mail & STILL they're coming. Keto, CBD, etc. And "blocking" their domains is useless because they keep changing them. Also, do you notify them when I block them? Because it seems like the junk INCREASES when I block them!

  9. junkmail filtering

    Junkmail filtering on outlook is ineffective to say the least.

    Junkmail works in a few ways.
    - Robots scan the internet for email addresses.
    - Business collect your email for legitimate reasons (like receipts or alerts) but then continue to send unsolicited mail
    - by a robot flooding random emails with a readably sounding senders name, a randomised or misleading email address, misleading body content (usually duplicated from an existing reputable website, and requiring the user to interact by clicking a hyperlink or download an executable.

    Does this look familiar:

  14. Junk Email Deleted Quicker Than Advertised

    The Junk Email folder has a banner saying "Junk Email will be deleted after 30 days" yet it repeatedly automatically deletes things 11 days old. Really not happy!!

  15. 'People ' should be called Contacts.

    'People ' should be called Contacts. sometimes it's a company that;s not a 'human' , thats a firm, an operation lol, not a people/person. ?? People is an awful label for CONTACTS.

  16. Junk Email Folder

    Junk Email folder - who decides what is 'junk' and how? I have recently had messages about insurance renewal, banking, and medical appointments all sent to the Junk Email folder because 'someone or something' simply decides that they are not relevant. However other **** in which I have absolutely no interest seems to appear in my Inbox. I suggest your algorithm that decides what is what needs some serious reworking.

  17. Calendar reminder does not work

    Your calendar, in theory improved, does not send remind email. This is very unfortunate. It was working perfectly well, and suddenly I missed few things (to call doctor for my chirurgical intervention set up date for example) because I blindly believe for that reminder. Will make adjustments quickly?

  19. "New message" button

    The new "New Message" button is too large and distracting. Please change it back to the older style with the + symbol - the button itself was not so distracting and large.

    Thanks

  20. "Empty Folder" appears in Inbox

    "Empty Folder" appears in Inbox and other folders after switching to junk folder and back. Browser has to be closed or one has to log out of account in order to restore normal toolbar.
