  2. 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…

  4. 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?

    2. 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

    Hey, thanks for the feedback!

    Is it possible that you’re accessing OWA from a different browser each time you’re signing in? The “Keep Me Signed In” feature will only work if you access from the same browser on the same computer in normal browsing mode.

    If you access in private browsing mode, it will not remember your “Keep Me Signed In” preference.

    Alternatively, if you clear your cookies, it will not remember your sign in preferences.

    Can you give us any more details about what’s going on?

  7. STOP EMAILS FROM APPSPOT.COM

    STOP EMAILS from appspot.com There are various Domain addresses for these emails all ending in appspot.com. All of these emails are sexually explicit. Please stop these emails from ending up in Junk Mail, Inbox or Subscriptions! There is NO way to stop them currently and they come in such a volume that they take up space and time to delete

  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

  11. Outlook not blocking spam. Just sends it to my junk file for me to deal with.

    Outlook has no valid answer on how to stop all the spam emails.

  12. Scroll bar design limits accessibility

    Scroll bars are far too narrow, and making the bar mostly invisible makes it incredibly difficult for people with limited eyesight to see, and the tiny size can make it awkward to select.

  13. 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…

  17. Blocking selected senders

    Without opening any questionable messages, the "Block" feature previously available in the "Junk email" folder was good in that it displayed the email address ID for the selected message(s) before giving the option to confirm the "Block" request. This helpful option does no appear to be available any longer.

  20. 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!!
