  2. I do NOT like the new Menu bar (Mail, Calendar, People. Files. To do etc.) which is now showing at left side of my Email screen.

    I do NOT like the new Menu bar (Mail, Calendar, People. Files. To do etc.) which is now showing at left side of my Email screen. The UP and Down arrows for going to the next or previous screen do not appear now because of the Menu bar.

  4. New side bar ribbon with Calendar, Office, and other icons

    I have been informed by customer support that this new addition cannot be removed, and as I don't need to use any of the icons it takes up unnecessary space on my screen.

  5. navigation pane

    Make it possible to move navigation pane (mail, calendar, people, etc) back to the bottom. Right now you have taken away all customization options and I can't even collapse it to get it out of the way. I do not need 4 columns when I am just trying to read my email.

  6. Email History

    Emails History.

    Please to add an option to find Recently opened emails.
    Sometime it takes long time to find a specific email then I might need it again after few time but it is hard to search it again.
    This feature can be considered like “History” in most internet browsers.

  10. Enable DKIM for Office 365 Home / Microsoft 365 Family mailboxes with a personalized email address

    The Office 365 Home / Microsoft 365 Family subscription has a premium option which allows you to use your own email domain.
    However, there is no option to enable the DKIM security measure in the premium interface for your own personalized email addresses / own email domain.
    Without DKIM, outgoing email often ends up in the recipient's Spam folder, because the mail is not signed and authenticity can not be verified.

    Can you enable the option to enable/configure DKIM in the outlook.com UI for Office 365 Home / Microsoft 365 Family subscribers?
    (just like you enabled the personalized email addresses…

  14. Problems with Blocked Senders list and junk mail Filter Options.


    1. The Blocked Senders list puts email from Blocked Senders into my Junk Mail folder, rather than into my Deleted Files folder, due to the differing and changing subdomains that the spammers use.


    2. Outlook does not allow wildcard (*) to block all subdomains from each email domain.


    3. The filter options to block all subdomains from each domain don't work.


    4. How do I block all email with address in the PATTERN of a@a.b.c? Notice that a@a.b.c is a PATTERN, not an email address. An example of a particular spammer's address is holdon@holdon.luxuryzero.com which is in the PATTERN of a@a.b.c (format).

  17. quick access bar location

    Please allow the quick access bar to be moved back to the bottom of the scree. It si very annoying to keep it on the left. If customers want to purchase the software advertise there they will do it regardless of where it is located.

  18. Block Junk Mail by Sender Name

    Please create an option to block senders by Name (not just by email address or domain). I receive 60 junk emails a day from different email addresses, but often with the same sender name. Blocking the email address and/or the domain isn't effective because the same junk senders have thousands of alternate email addresses. The sender name, however, is consistent (ie: Gadget Junkies, LeafFilter, Walk In Safety Tub, Tommy Chong, Splash Wines, Keranique, etc). Also, adding a Rule to block emails with those words in the subject line or body doesn't work because Rules aren't applied to junk mail (another…

  20. Do not start telling me what to write when I am writing an email.

    My idea is to let people write their own emails without providing intrusive suggestions. I've been writing for over 50 years and I don't need any help from a computer.
