  1. Please allow automatic BCC to self

    When sending an outbound email, please allow automatic BCC to myself. I like to get a copy of emails I've sent. Outlook (native Windows application) already has this feature. Outlook on the web (Office 365) does not.

  2. I can't scroll down to old messages

    I can't scroll down to old messages, it takes a lifetime. I have had to change browser because there are all kinds of problems now with Firefox. I can't read when I sent replies as I could before. All this represents a major step backwards.

  3. Add due date to flag

    There is no way to assign a due date for flags like you can in Outlook and use to be able to do in the old Outlook for the Web.

  4. Introducing categories in the search function

    Good idea that search function is now extended to keyword. However, if you just want to search for e.g. a sender, you get too many results, because all mails will be listed where the sender's name mentioned in the text. Would be easier, if you introduce search categories, like:
    - from
    - to
    - cc
    - bcc
    - subject
    - keyword

    Other users may have further ideas.

  5. PDF attachments are not accessible

    On a Mac using either Safari or Chrome, PDF attachments are not accessible, meaning you cannot preview them or save them. There is a round red circle with a line through it over the attachment.

    PDFs are accessible in the "old" version of Outlook on the web on a Mac with Safari or Chrome.

  6. Need to have checkmark option by clicking the flag twice!

    Before, there would be an option to have a checkmark after clicking the flag twice. Now it is gone completely! Please please please add it back!

  8. Increase resize range between message list and reading pane

    When the reading pane is set to "show on the bottom", the allowed height of the message list is between 270px and 535px, regardless of monitor size.

    When Outlook is open in a monitor rotated in portrait orientation, this makes the reading pane much larger than it needs to be and wastes a lot of space. On the "old" Outlook, the maximum size of the message list is 1084px which is a lot more flexible.

    Ideally the maximum height should be a percentage of the screen height, however increasing the maximum height of the top pane to about 800px would…

  9. Attachment

    While responding to email with attachment and coping new people, the attachment does not (request to) attach automatically like it used to be with the previous version of outlook . Thanks

  10. Search folder

    Enable Search folders in OWA, this is a brilliant option. It would be better if Search Folders were synced through other Outlook Apps too, like Desktop, Android & etc...

    We should be able to search any type of Outlook item (Mail, People, Calendar, Notes and Tasks). It'll be even better if we can search through Teams messages too.

  14. Distracting

    As I move the mouse over emails the screen flashes with (popups)? I think that's the wrong word to describe it but it is very distracting. I just want to be able to read my email without all the "movement".

  15. Cannot create a calendar event by dragging an email into the Calendar

    I use to drag emails and dropping them to the calendar so it can create an event (base on that email).
    It's easier and faster to follow up on your emails and making them an event with a reminder in the calendar.

  16. Create/update calendar appointment without sending notification

    It is not always necessary to send an email notification to attendees/guests every time a calendar appointment is created or updated. It adds extra emails to inboxes, and staff get confused/frustrated when they receive numerous notifications about the same meeting. The event/meeting organiser should be able to choose which updates need to be emailed out to guests/attendees, and which ones don't.

  17. New version too cluttery + changing subject line

    The inbox list takes up too much space and is too cluttery. Also, we HAVE to be able to change the subject lines in e-mails simply by clicking on the subject line and editing it.

  18. When I reply a message it saves automatically as draft instead of let me wright something, I need to click on edit to do so

    When I reply a message it saves automatically as draft instead of letting me write something, I need to click on edit to do so when on the old interface that never happened.

  20. Possibility to disable automatic emojis

    When typing a mail, :) turns into some ugly blurb. There is no settings "cog wheel" anymore, so no settings to disable this which seems like an oversight.
