  1. Email Headers not Parse-able from View Message Source

    The "View Message Source" function in the Outlook.com browser web app modifies the original Email Headers of a message and makes them impossible for header parsing tools to read the headers of the message correctly. This current view folds all of the white space and makes other formatting changes to render the full header un-parse-able by tools like https://mxtoolbox.com/emailheaders.aspx.

    Please modify the "View Message Source" to display the un-modified version of the full email headers so that it can be easily copied and pasted into an RFC parser and be readable by the parser.

    p.s. If you double click…

  2. Multiple Calendar Reminders

    I am looking at Office 365 as a viable alternative to Google Apps. One of the most useful features of Google Calendar is that I can have multiple reminders specified. So for instance my default is to receive a reminder 2 weeks ahead, 1 week ahead, 2 days ahead and 2 hours ahead.

    I can only see an option for one reminder on the Office 365 calendar and can't see how to add more. This is a serious omission. A basic calendar requirement in my opinion.

  8. Calendar updates

    I don't like what's just changed in Outlook Calendar. I used to enjoy dragging and dropping events from one day to another. Is this gone? Please bring it back. It was very useful, Thanks.

  9. Block option

    Could you please add the option "Block" by default for every email received?
    That's a very efficient way to fight spam

  10. Spammer using my e mail address AND Blocks not working and

    Scammer.


    1. Specific Issue

    I keep getting a scammer using my e mail address to send bogus FEDEX e mails to me asking for my postal address details. How do i stop them?


    1. VERY IMPORTANT

    Why do you only block specific e mail addresses and not the @***.co section as i am repeatedly getting the same spam e mails but with the sender just chaning part of the leading part of the e mail address e.g. 1 digit or character, as a result the blocks do not work

  11. Account recovery

    Please expand the account recovery form to include more questions, & thus more chance to recover an old account. Questions like "(apprimately) when was the account made", "(appr.) when did you last login", "from which email accounts did you receive emails" and "to which accounts was your email linked" would be helpful. I know the last two are less reliable, but maybe make them 'weigh' less importance to compensate. And maybe allow for a 5~10% window on the "when" questions if theyre more than 2 months ago.
    Lastly, it would be really nice if it were possible to speak to…

  12. Cannot block multiple spam emails at once

    This seems like it should be a simple fix. There is clearly a massive issue with the amount of spam that is sent and the amount of spam that gets to recipients. While it is probably useless to try to block sender accounts because they will simply change a few characters and keep sending away, for hotmail to not bother having the option to block multiple spam emails at once seems to be willful ignorance to the problem, or laziness as to not implement a solution. If there are legitimate reasons to as to why the issues is still not…

  13. Recover deleted outlook.com aliases

    Users should have a period of time - a week would be enough for many people - to undelete aliases that were deleted from accounts (often by kids on xbox.) When an account is closed, users have 60 days to change their mind - they should have a similar option when aliases are deleted.

    For an example of the problem this will solve, see this thread, https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/outlook_com/forum/all/my-hotmail-account-was-deleted-while-my-son-was/2250b864-3712-4813-b736-e896e8146c25

  14. No logout

    Log Out does not show in drop down box - I have to exit by hitting the Outlook address block which still leaves me signed in.

  17. Rules do not work

    Cannot run rules after editing. You update the rule then try to run it and nothing happens. Tried using check box while saving a rule, tried to click run button - nothing. Well, in this was rules are useless if you cannot update them through time.

  20. No way to sign-out, no Help icon in Outlook.com (even after a couple of months)

    Sign-out and Help cannot be accessed in Outlook.com website in Mail and Calendar, except under People. Is this a bug? How do I sign out of Outlook.com?
