  1. I have no way of getting back into my two outlook and hotmail accounts. I tried recovery forms which don’t work?

    I am locked out of my own accounts I depend on to Pay bills, professional network and manage my life. You now have locked me out of two accounts and the recovery forms always come back saying I havent provided enough info for your system to recover my account. Well why can’t I send a passport, driving licence, proof of address. This is so wrong and I just want back into my own account.

    The accounts are for paulreecescott@outlook.com and pauls ott16@hotmail.com

    Please somebody help me.

  2. Make it easier to get in contact with someone about a problem

    I’ve lost all my emails from my inbox and I am finding it really hard to contact someone. Virtual assistant is hopeless and emails sent to support are just coming back. Getting very frustrated have lost so many important emails. Really want someone to contact me or make it easier to contact support. 🤬🤬

  3. Allow users the option to use the desktop version from their phone

    Please add an option to view a desktop version from my smartphone. I don’t have a laptop or desktop anymore & have to go to the library to use the desktop version for me to delete folders since there’s also no way to delete folders in my profile using my phone any longer.

  4. Important mail going to junk folder

    I want to be able to disable the junk filter entirely. Outlook flags more false positives than actual spam. This filter is wasting my time and making me miss critical messages.

  6. Please stop locking my account

    Every 3 to 4 WEEKS, Past 3 to 4 months, I am blocked out by hot nail. It says that I am violating my terms of usage, which I don’t understand since I only receive emails and send a couple emails each month. But I have to go through this very tedious and time-consuming, and very frustrating process in which I have to change my email, and then after successfully signing in, and prompted to have a confirmation code sent to a tpast 3 to 4 months, I am blocked out by Hotmail. It says that I am violating my…

  10. Spam Word or Phrase Select Filtering

    Hello, I’ve been Hounded by “Bit Coin” Wannabes since last November, clocking up to 20 Spam emails a day & through my Night, not to mention Unwanted Phone Calls!
    Why can’t the Software Engineers Create a Setting whereby the Owner can insert Choice Words or a Phrase to Filter in Real time the Offending Spam Originators Efforts
    ie. “Bit Coin” or “Bit” Titles
    Apple recently December 2019 created in iOS a “Silence Unknown Callers” setting that when Enabled Blocks All incoming Calls that are not in your Contacts list!
    However this Bitcoin Wannabe that thinks he’s a big man harassing…

  11. Change default from focused to other

    Make it easier to find the default for what you read first. Mine stuck on focus. I’d like to have it go to others.

  13. Förslag

    When i delete a mail a sign comes up asking me if i want to regret my delete... it’s positioned precise were the log out ”button” is so you have to wait a couple of second before you can log out. Are not the developer forced to use there products to find these small annoying stuff?

  14. Password / Account Verification

    Cada "x" tiempo me obligais a cambiar la contraseña diciendo que alguien intenta entrar en ella, no me dejáis entrar al correo hasta que verifico y cambio la contraseña, intento poner una que me acuerde y si ya la puse una vez me decís que no puede ser. Tengo activado la verificación de dos pasos y para entrar necesitan el mensaje que recibo en el móvil, dejar ya de molestarme con el cambio de contraseña, quiero volver a poner la contraseña anterior.

    Every "x" time you force me to change the password saying that someone tries to enter it, do…

  16. Easier to add spam domains

    It is too diffucult to add a spam domain. It would be nice with an option - mark as spam - followed by a field customize domain, since only the first part of a domain is identical

    Thank you for reaching out to us. We are sorry that you haven’t been able to block certain contacts. We are considering bringing this ability to outlook on the mobile browser. However in the meantime you can do this from outlook.com on a desktop or a laptop. Follow the steps mentioned here https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/outlook_com/forum/all/how-do-i-block-the-email-of-someone-harassing-me/d2d4a775-b8c8-4c38-bcc6-404a940030e8.

  19. No Waiting Time For Altering Security Contact Information

    My idea has to do with the fact that Microsoft Outlook e-mail is too complicated with its waiting time for accessing altered security contact information. I accidentally signed in with Google from an Amazon Fire tablet that created a whole new myfirerls@gmail.com Microsoft Outlook e-mail account that I do not want and need. I was trying to change my security contact alternate e-mail address information for my richard-c-jr@outlook.com account. It has an erroneus tesia@sissify.com or sensia@sissify.com e-mail address that no longer works because the Sissify Femail system went out of business.
