  1. Please remove the new bug, where filtered search results are limited to around 260 results

    A new rollout has provided a serious bug where doing any search of email, using a search term, will limit results to about 260, even though there may be more than that. Causing a lot of headaches for my business and we've had to explore other email options after being with Hotmail since 2001.

    • Bring Back all the features of Sunrise. **** bring back Sunrise.

      Nothing you do will ever compare with Sunrise. You killed the best calendar ever. I would like some more visuals, Time to leave prompts. integration with other sites and services.

      • Calendar 1 Hour Off for Events Prior to November 1, 2015

        I have no earthly idea why November 1, 2015 is so special. Maybe it's different for everyone, maybe I'm the only one seeing this. But for whatever reason, all events in my calendar prior to November 1, 2015 appear one hour earlier than they actually were.

        I've flipped back and forth between beta and non-beta. They appear correctly in non-beta. In both non-beta and beta, events on or after November 1, 2015 all appear at their correct times.

        These events should be appearing at the correct times. I get that this is obviously going to be a low-priority issue because…

        • How to set email follow up reminder?

          In the desktop Outlook application, I can right click on a particular email, Follow Up -> Add Reminder... but there is no such thing in the Outlook.com. I would love to have this feature implemented. I am using this feature all the time in the desktop version and if I'm going to use outlook.com, I need to have this feature there as well.

          • color categories

            Color Categories for Outlook Calendar are gone in the Beta. The new version doesn't offer giving appointments within the same calender different colors (categories). That was always one of the major reasons I used Outlook. If that is gone for good, I might as well use Google Calender. :-(

              • New tabs

                I don't think it’s necessary to have the other items in the Navigation Pane open in new tabs automatically.

                • delete email bubble

                  The click to delete is too small. If you click anywhere near the edge of the bubble you open the email. Would be nice if the bubble would be larger.

                    • INclude a Zoom feature

                      I have Parkinson's - no tremor but typing is slow and inaccurate. I also have double vision, which doesn't help. Even without these handicaps the size of the print on a 24" screen is so small it is barely legible. I looked for a "View" tab, hoping to find a Zoom button, but could find neither. I now compose in14 pt, but this is difficult because the print is still too small although too big for some recipients . Why no zoom in Outlook?

                      • Not able to edit notes

                        The new version does not have an option to edit notes. I have recurring events which have notes that need to be changed from time to time. However, this new version does not have a button to edit such notes.
                        Bring the ability to edit notes back!

                        • I wish that instead of a little flag icon to designate follow up times/events/messages, you use a highlight color for the actual email mess

                          When I want to flag an email for followup, I select task and the color icon appears at the lower right side of the screen. I almost never do anything about the follow-ups since I don't look at that little box. I'd rather like to see the whole email message highlighted in the inbox. then I would follow up, because I would see it.

                          • New feedback

                            I've been verified with an SMS few times and your service still requests me to be verified to be able to send 1 single email. Is it a kind of joke or something? More than that - when I try to *again* verify myself the reply is: Service is unavailable, please try again later. So if I need to send my email urgently I should not go with Hotmail or what?

                            • Inbox is easily deleted and emails aren't recoverable!

                              My inbox disappeared about 2 weeks ago and I couldn't figure out why. I found 10+ years of emails in the deleted folders and after emailing with support I quickly discovered there is NO WAY to recover them. I have tried going to the Beta version that is useless. It freezes up when I try to highlight all of the emails so I can hit some mysterious Recovery button. I barely get through a month of 2018 emails before it freezes. It also doesn't allow (in any version) me to drag and drop. When I click the Recover Deleted Emails…

                                There is no way to share screens during Skype sessions initiated through the icon in the calendar. If you want to share screens, you must open up the app and use that instead.

                                  I work as part of a team in work and often by myself.

                                  I often have overlapping events between both calendars. There should be a way to add an event to more than one calendar at a time. Currently I have to add to my personal calendar and then re add the event to my team calendar.

                                        • email is all over the place

                                          I can't find my emails. Whenever I read an email and I need to refer back to it, it's gone! It's difficult to navigate.
