How can we improve Outlook on the web?

Can't COPY emails to other folders on new version.

Can't COPY emails to other folders on new version. I need to be able to copy, not just move.

    The new Outlook does not have the feature for copying e-mail to a particular folder. I previously provided this very feedback, so this is a second time I report this issue. I hope it gets worked on soon.

    In old version I create a clone mail using copy function. But new version, I can not copy mails in draft. This function is really needed for me to do my task. Please restore or add this function.

    still look for the copy feature from one folder to the other, this is big item for me since 1 email might relate to 2 or 3 different folder

    This is feature from old outlook that needs brought over to the new version. I have multiple folders and often need to copy an email into more than one place when topic crosses multiple folder subjects.

    I am satisfied with the new Outlook, however I miss the possibility to copy mail messages from one folder to the other. This was possible with the old version.

    Please restore the option to "Copy" an e-mail to a different (or multiple) folders. Forcing us to only "move" an e-mail to 1 folder is very problematic for me. this is a deal-breaker for me, in fact.

    Hi.
    I could no longer create a copy of mails in another folder.
    I only had the option of moving the mails.
    I like the ability to copy please.
    Thank you.

    Copying to different folders helps categorizing when a lot of people use the mailbox

    Why has it been taken out or where is it?

  • Anonymous commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    Me too. There is no way to COPY emails to a different folder. Some googling indicates there might have been a 'Copy' checkbox on the 'Move' dialog, but it isn't there now.
