  4. verify

    I cannot log onto outlook.com because it wants to verify who I am by texting me a pass code. I do not own a cellphone so cannot receive the code. Therefore I am locked out. All Microsoft online support could suggest is for me to go out and buy a cellphone. There has to be another way to verify. This issue also means I cannot send any emails using Microsoft Mail. Please fix issue.

  5. Forcing Manual Synchronization with Connected Accounts

    Please add an option to manually force a sync of connected accounts. Currently, you have to wait approx 15 minutes for the automatic sync. If you wait for an urgent email of a connected account then one better uses the connected account itself.

  8. Blocking spam that share a common name@randomdomain.com

    Blocking e-mail should get a new entry mode. Right now, a popular tactic for advertisers that get a hold of your e-mail address is to generate random domain names, using the same name before the @. For example: I'm currently getting dozens of e-mails from newsletter@randomdomain1.com; newsletter@randomdomain2.com, etc. If it were to be possible to block all senders with "newsletter@", that would solve my issue. I understand that this would also filter out all other newsletter@'s that I actually signed up for, but at least that would be my own choice. Perhaps it's even possible to block all…

  14. Dark mode makes it harder to discern read from unread emails at a glance.

    Dark mode makes it hard to see new emails. The text is blue and bold and the left side of the row has a blue marker but the whole row doesn't seem to change color.

    I'd like it to lighten up the whole row to make it more obvious which emails are new and unread.

  15. email deletion

    EMail Deletion

    Why can't I delete the emails showing on the panel vs having to delete my entire Inbox?? I don't like having to click each one seperately.

  17. Change Two-step verification

    The SMS sending option cannot be eliminated from two-step verification. I use the same tool in many other services like Google and they let me choose which method I prefer. Especially since I have read that, although it is very safe, the SMS method is more vulnerable to an attack than, for example, Google Authenticator appp, which is what I use in my account. Also, I have used a security key in my account as a login method but I wish to establish the key as a second factor method since using only the key is more vulnerable if I…

  20. outlook bug

    the "new outlook" from web based outlook interface interprets lines with "CR" (carriage return) in the end differently than the "old outlook".

    The "old outlook" shows a new line for each "CR" while the "new outlook" doesn't, hence cause all contents of email body got concatenated and became a long line.
