  1. [Dislike]:Folders close down to Inbox upon log off

    All subfolders close down to the Inbox every time I sign out or close my browser. VERY INCONVENIENT. I have 35 folders and another 40 sub folders and sub-sub folders. I need to open up each one every time I sign in. No good. FYI: MS 365 is the ONLY webmail program I've ever used that does this. in fact, the Outlook Suite version installed on my laptop DOES REMEMBER folder tree settings. Please fix this. Thanks.

  3. Show the display name of the personal contacts rather than GAL when the same contact exists both in the GAL and the personal contacts

    It would be great if the display name of the personal contacts is shown rather than GAL when the same contact exists both in the Global Address List (GAL) and the personal contacts.

  5. The arrangement of the addresses in the address list in Ootw should be the same order with the one in Outlook client

    We used the New-AddressListContainer cmdlet to add the new address book in the address book list. The arrangement of the addresses in Outlook is shown as the way we set by using -Container cmdlet. But its arrangement in Ootw on the other hand cannot be shown as we expected. It would be great if the address book list can be shown in the same arrangement in both Outlook client and Ootw.

  7. Delete "News" folder from hotmail account

    Always include the option to disable features before you add them. I do not need Microsoft deciding what news I need to see and would very much like to delete that folder from my hotmail account, but have been informed that the developers did not include this as an option when adding it.

    It would be great if the Scheduling Assistant could show the list of the participants who are invited to the meeting room when we want to book the same meeting room on the target time.

  9. Change the name resolution behavior

    Currently, the name resolution is done automatically by exact match with the display name, and it is not possible to determine names with the part of the display name.
    So, we would like to apply the name resolution behavior to the new Outlook on the web like the previous version of Ootw.
    Needed features below:
    1. Implement a feature that can determine/check by partial match of the display name.
    2. The manual name resolution feature.

  10. German translation issue in Calender

    German translation of event responses in the details view of the current day ("Mein Tag") sidebar is wrong.

    Occurred with a setup of three people: A, B, C.

    A created a recurring event and invited B and C.
    C accepted the invite.
    B did not respond to the invite.

    For B the translated text in the sidebar reads: (word means the word is bold)
    "A hat Sie eingeladen."
    "Siehat nicht geantwortet" <-- Issue
    "C hat angenommen"

    The correct wording should be "Sie haben nicht geantwortet". The "hat" for the current user (B) should be…

  11. Specify the archive mailbox for the Inbox rules to be forwarded

    It would be great if we could specify the archive mailbox for the Inbox rules to be forwarded in Outlook on the web because currently we cannot do so.

    The Automatically wrap text at character: option can be set in Outlook client. It would be great if it could be set in Outlook on the web as well.

  17. Show the default folder name in the language we set

    It would be great if the default folders name is shown in Japanese straightforward as we already set in Ootw.
    It is inconvenient that we need to check Rename default folders so their names match the specified language after selecting Japanese in the Language field from General settings > Language and time in Ootw or selecting True for the LocalizeDefaultFolderName value.

  18. Re-code new webmail to allow colored flags. You changed all my colors with the new webmail to red only and this is not helpful to me.

    Provide instruction on the new webmail & an easy way to contact you with suggestions for improvement.

  19. Color PWA title bar according to theme

    Progressive web apps can provide a theme color in the manifest to color the address/title bar, but a "theme-color" meta tag can also be used to dynamically color the bar. Outlook seems to use a fixed value of #DEE1E6 in both the manifest and meta tag. Twitter update the meta tag to make the bar match the current theme and I think that might make sense for Outlook.

  20. Dark Theme Text Color Too White/Bright

    Please tone down the white text color in dark mode as the bright white on dark gives me/other people headaches after short viewing periods. Other dark modes use text colors closer to #EEEEEE for just that reason. Thanks.
