  1. 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…

  2. Option to disable "Recover deleted items"

    You could allow us to not see this link. Every other option has button only, why this link in the top? I just want to empty my deleted folder without seeing links. Tks

  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).

  4. mark as read button on notifications instead o ARCHIVE or give option or choose between these two ARCHIVE or READ

    Why we have to open the email to mark them as read. I'm sure 90% people don't use archive on Android notifications. Many other Popular apps including myMail, Yandex mail, Yahoo etc. have it. Please add MARK AS READ instead of ARCHIVE.

    This has been asked since 2016 and with 10000+ votes but seems like outlook team don't see it useful.

  5. Remove ad for "Get Outlook on your phone for free"

    Remove ad for Outlook mobile. I'm unable to use your mobile app because you route my companies username/password through a third party server rather than directly from my phone to our corporate mail server. Even after uninstalling, it took TWO MONTHS and 12 EMAILS to stop your third party server from attempting to use my credentials to access our corporate mail server. Now seeing this ad for it non-stop in my premium subscription outlook.com account makes my blood boil.

  6. phishing email in quarantine

    Recent change to Exchange Online should be an option to Opt-in.
    MC200232, is being implemented and allows for phishing emails to be visible in users quarantine. I don't see a way we can configure this 'not' to have phishing emails land in quarantine (completely invisible to users).

    Organizations should be able to determine if they want this configured this way. Many of our users move items from Junk/Quarantine to the Inbox in order to make the decision for themselves.

  10. Show/Hide Email Addresses

    Make on option to show/hide the sender's full email address below their name without having to open the message.

    Add a toggle switch that will show/hide the full email addresses. Having to mouse-over a contact and wait a second or two to view the alt text is no good.

  12. [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.

  14. calendar notifications shared calendar

    Be able to disable calendar notifications on a per calendar notification, rather than an all or nothing approach. My colleague shared his calendar with me and so suddenly I received all of his calendar notifications as well as my own, which is not ideal.

  15. Add a new access to do certain things in the mailbox calendar

    I would like you to add a new access for users to do all the certain actions below in the mailbox calendar:
    add own schedule in the mailbox calendar directly, block double booking, modify exclusive event that he/she created, delete the event that he/she created.
    Or it would be great to have a method to set the above actions for users.

  17. 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.

  18. Extend retention duration of junk email

    As spam filtering is not 100% efficient and legitimate emails fall into the Junk folder, I'd like to extend the duration of the retention of junk email from 10 days to 90 days (or user-configurable) so that important email does not get scrapped.

  19. Leave Blocked emails as blocked.

    Please stop putting the entire list of Junk mail for the month on. I delete all mine and block them, why are they then showing in their hundreds each time I log. The new Outlook is very bad and should be put back to the original one, so called progress is not always good!!!

  20. 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.
