  3. Restore ability to create alias with hotmail.com -domain

    Years ago it was possible existing users to create alias with "hotmail.com"- or "outlook.com" -domain. Now it's only possible to create alias with "outlook.com"-domain.

    However new users (becoming Microsoft Account users) can choose their first email address between "hotmail.com" or "outlook.com" domains. I think this is unfair!

    Please, give existing users ability to create new aliases with "hotmail.com" -domain so users can choose between "outlook.com" or "hotmail.com" -domains.

  5. New feedback

    OMG! this is awful to use. Why have you made these updates to hotmail? There's huge adverts rolling on the side, I can't scroll down my email at all because it updates itself every second to the very top message. I just want a simple, SIMPLE, operating system on this. Not grouped messages that mess everything. Not adverts that take a quarter of the page. Nothing fancy!.
    Everything is so **** hard with this now. If I didn't have hotmail for so bloody long that the address is everywhere, I'd change it to something. Even googly with their snooping on…

  6. search calendar

    Old search in Outlook calendar required less clicks, had instant results, and the results showed on calendar in current month view. New experience requires me to complete my query and click search. The results are displayed in a chronological list which means the event I was looking for was at the bottom.

  8. block partial domain name

    More spam now avoids your detection and our blocking by variation in domain name. example:
    hzoUq1FOXgy@sujtcheshirecontractors.com.au
    Hundreds of emails ending in "shirecontractors.com.au" but prepended with random letters. If your BLOCK DOMAIN just allowed a wildcard template like
    *shirecontractors.com.au
    or even *.au
    we'd have far more control of where we accept mail from.

  15. Navigate back to search

    Hi, it used to be that when a search was made, we could view one of the messages, and the navigate back to the search. Now navigating back brings us to Inbox, and I need to do the search again to view another item! This is really annoying. Also, undo send feature is gone.

  16. Bring back hover search of email senders!

    Can't hover over sender of email to search for more emails from that sender, so I can delete them all at once.
    This is a huge time waster for me!
    Why did you change this feature Microsoft??

  20. Turn off reminders by default or use previous setting in calendar

    In the calendar beta reminders are on by default now, they didn't used to be.
    Please add the option to either turn off the reminders by default so I don't have to turn it off everytime, or have it so it saves your previous reminder setting from the last event added.

    Hate this about the calendar beta!
