  3. Slow web interface

    Outlook.com works well as a mail server for MS Office Outlook. However, as a web based application, it is very slow and cumbersome. I would prefer a more streamlined and snappy interface.

  6. [Suggestion]:Junk Emails Not Being Deleted after 10 Days

    It says at the top "Items in Junk Email will be deleted after 10 days" and that worked until September 14, 2020. Since that date, no Junk emails have been deleted like they normally are and Junk folder is building up. I can delete manually but prefer the automatic deletion after 10 days to work again.

  11. Junk e-mail: block e-mail addresses using wildcards (eg *@*.can

    Junk e-mail: why can't you allow the user to block e-mails using a wildcard and only part of the e-mail address? I receive, EVERY DAY, emails from pharmacy<something>.can and I want to block @.can instead of wasting my time to block every single instance, every single day

  12. [Suggestion]:Verifying Account

    Verifying an outlook account is impossible with the the mouse and cheese thing. Why are MS using the alternative email address I entered in the first instance. I am unable to use the phone option as out of signal range.

  15. EMAIL "SIDE BAR MENU" AND "SUGGESTIONS" WHILE I TYPE AN EMAIL.

    Let ME choose if I want the darn menu on the side (I DON'T!) OR the "suggestions" to my typing in a message. I don't want or need them popping into my train of thought and typing. I touch type 55-65 words per minute and all they do is ANNOY & SLOW me down.
    All I want is a simple easy to use email program; not a darn Word Processor. If I need editing or help, I'll go to Word and use it to create a document, then cut and paste it over. Usually when I'm doing email I'm just…

  17. [Suggestion]:Maybe try this!

    How about ACTUALLY making the Block list and "Rules" work? Or is that to hard for you? Learn To Code!

  18. Ability to disable translating text into emoji

    After consulting support, I've discovered there's no way to disable auto conversion of what you type into emoji's. There's a method of making the emoji's not animated, but nothing about stopping auto conversion of what you type into an emoji.

    For example, let's say I'm typing a quick list. I might do 1) 2) 3) or A) B) C)

    Typing B) ends up being a smiley face with sunglasses. I need it to -not- do this behavior.

  19. Automatic replies

    When Automatic Replies is turned on, the dialogue box is situated directly on top of the sign-out profile picture button. When you click on your profile picture to sign-out of Outlook.com, it is hidden behind the Automatic Reply dialogue box thus making it very difficult to sign-out of Outlook.com

    Gmail, on-the-other-hand, places its Automatic Reply in the form of a yellow thin bar across the top of the web-page so not to interfere with signing out of Gmail.

    I would like to see Outlook.com reposition the Automatic Reply dialogue box so it does not interfere with signing out of Outlook.com.…

  20. switch language while writing a email

    Rather the changing the language in settings you should be able to change the language while writing an email or for portions of an email with a right click like it used to be done in the past.
