  1. 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.

  4. Attaching a photo in an email message.

    In old Outlook we used to be able to move an attachment (photo) to the body of an email. I don't find that option in the new Outlook. Please bring it back.

  5. We are still having issues with our "reply" "reply all" and "forward" buttons.

    We are still having issues with our "reply" "reply all" and "forward" buttons. When we hit one of those features, the email just goes away and takes us back to the general inbox. We then have to go find that email again in order to reply, etc. Please let us know if this is something that can be worked on!! It is very inconvenient.

  7. Allow messages to be permanently deleted instead of routing to junk email folder

    In Outlook Destkop, there is the option to permanently delete items instead of routing to junk email folder. This only works though if Outlook (desktop) Junk E-mail rule is used, which it rarely is due to Outlook.com robust spam filtering.

    There should be an option on the server side for this. Alternatively, allow control of retention policy applied to junk items.

  8. Junk Email Folder

    Junk Email folder - who decides what is 'junk' and how? I have recently had messages about insurance renewal, banking, and medical appointments all sent to the Junk Email folder because 'someone or something' simply decides that they are not relevant. However other **** in which I have absolutely no interest seems to appear in my Inbox. I suggest your algorithm that decides what is what needs some serious reworking.

  10. Allow for change of sorting order to last name first name in in the list of shared calendars. Respectively, allow for changing display also.

    Allow for change of sorting order to last name first name in in the list of shared calendars. Respectively, allow for changing display also.

    In the left lower side of outlook, the list of shared chalendars you can add via "add calendar from adress book" defaults to First Name, Last Name. The option to change a) the display of these to Last Name First Name and provide the option to sort by a chosen element.

  12. 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.

  13. 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!

  17. printing calender

    I need to be able to print the calendar like I could before. Now the calendar won't print correctly in landscape mode. It prints half on one page and half on another. The margins are off and look lopsided when printed.

    I also like being able to print a date range. For example, I sometimes need to print 3 months at a time when I'm looking at my schedule. Now I have to go and print from each month instead. It takes too much time.

    I miss being able to scroll down through the calendar. I sometimes need to look…

  18. Emails in RULES sent to JUNK folder, repeatedly.

    If an email has a rule, "move the email to a folder" why does the JUNK filter continuously dump them into the junk folder? How much code does it take to "check the rules" before "engaging junk engine?"
