  1. 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.

  3. Add 'Safe Senders' link to Junk Email

    Add "Safe Senders" link to Junk Email.
    I receive junk email that is actually useful. I block junk and/or report phishing scams., neither of which is entirely effective. Please add a link other than "This is not spam" because its use is only temporary and applies to the single email (in my experience).

  5. 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!!

  6. cancel sidebar

    Hello,

    Please allow us to be able to REMOVE the new left vertical SIDE BAR (with calendar, contacts, to do list, etc.).

    I personnally dont want to have always this left side bar in front of me, and this left vertical side bar reduce the available space on the screen.

    Thanks a lot

  7. Fix phishing button

    The Outlook phishing function should either be deleted or linked to expanded blocking capacity, because it doesn't appear to do anything useful, now.

  8. [Urgent] Add the ability to 'Mark as phishing' without opening emails

    Add the ability to 'Mark as phishing' without having to view the email, also add the option to 'Mark as phishing' on the windows 10 mail client which doesn't appear to have the option at all (as it is meant to be for the common good).

    It is really annoying that you have to open an email you already know is fake just to report it and potentially runs the risks of some technologies like web beacons harvesting information.

  10. outlook premium

    I was an Outlook Premium subscriber for years. So disappointed that I can not renew my Outlook Premium without getting Office 365. I DO NOT need Office. I just need an ad-free Outlook mail. Hope it will be offered again in the near future before I take my mail elsewhere.

  11. Indicate Current Account with Email Address or Address Nickname

    When you have multiple accounts linked within Outlook.com (ie, GMAIL), there should be some kind of indicator that persists while browsing messages that shows which account is active. Merely having the G logo or the Outlook logo is not sufficient if there are multiple GMAIL accounts. Would it be possible to add a setting to add an account nickname so that the logo showed 3 initials of the account?

  12. Difficulty signing out

    I have a terrible time signing out. I click on my picture about 50 times and "sign out" every time lately. A pop up interrupts. Why??

  15. 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.

  16. new view is HORRIBLE

    I can't believe I am the only one that hates the new "cartoon" like icons on Outlook 365. I can't believe this is supposed to be better. I can't even "see" when I look at my inbox that I have invites because the calendar invite icon is so light.

    Why the change? It was FINE. As usual with Microsoft, you take forever to address real issues, because you are busy introducing new things for us to hate. Really, really disappointing.

  17. Phishing using Apple's name

    Apple related phishing scams:

    Why do I get 2 or 3 phishing emails every day for things apple related from microsoft's mail system, but never a one from gmail? I report EVERY ONE OF THEM, but you guys can';t figure out how to filter these? Is Microsoft not as competent as Google or just plain inept and/or lazy?
