  2. Block option

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

  5. Checking an email should not open it

    I just got a spam mail in my inbox.
    I want to move it to my spam folder without opening it.
    If I click the checkbox, the mail opens.
    I don't like that.

  7. Email Pop ups

    Very much dislike the new mail pop ups. Return the mail system to what is was with the email reminder capability.

  8. Subscription Management

    Relentless emails from multiple addresses from wanted and unsolicited sites. Like LINKEDIN is grouped, should there be better sorting, aggregation and filtering of email "Subscriptions"?

  9. Ad Preferences Settings OFF!

    Ad preferences settings, STOP reverting my settings back to ON when I've already changed them to OFF 20 times now. JUST STOP! I press "save" for a reason, why can't you SAVE my setting?

  11. Cannot block unwanted email/spam

    I am having blocking emails I do not want. I do not even have them in my safe listing. The save button is dark when you want to save an email you want to block. I have tried so many times. Please fix this terrible error ASAP. It is really making me sick of outlook now. I never had this problem with regular Hotmail. Please fix this problem ASAP. Thank you.

  13. can we delete or reset all rules?

    can we delete or reset all rules?
    too many good e-mails ending up in trash!
    it would be nice to be able to start again.

    as well as doing a back up of the rules!!

  14. Contact's birthday does not reappear in Birthday Calender

    I accidentally removed a contact's birthday from the Birthday calendar and now I cannot get it back in. Changing the contact's birthday and back does not generate a new entry in Birthday calender anymore. This worked 2 days ago!

  16. turn off new features by default and allow users to turn on/off with a switch

    I have spent 20 years being frustrated by hotmail (outlook). Every time MS adds a new feature they break something I used to use or the new feature is just annoying. I then spend ages trying to figure out how to use it again, contacting support, have to post a request to fix on a forum (?!?!?) etc- it is massively disrespectful of my time as a user who just wants to use email (without being part of a continual beta test program) to have this disruption all the time.

    Instead of just turning on a new feature, please, please,…

  17. Keep Sorting when navigating between folders

    When coming back to Inbox from another folder, the e-mails are no longer sorted by Sender, and revert back to default sorting by date. I want Outlook.com to remember how I want my messages sorted in each folder.

  19. 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!
