    True., In the 'all contacts' view in 'People' each contact is shown there once only. But if you search for eg John Doe, the search always shows (at least)n two identical results. If you edit one, the other is also updated, so there is only one underlying result. If you delete one, thinking to remove the 'duplicate' entry, BOTH will be deleted. It's quite annoying.

    This is a common problem that also applies to small groups and organisations. But it can't be done in this technology as far as I can see. You haven't got any shared server version of a list. People lists aren't even kept in step with contact changes eg changed email addresses, they are just a copied snapshot, so outlook is worse than many alternatives in this area. But none of the popular email programs seem to offer a shared list facility such as you would like.

    This is a major drawback to Outlook.

    Scenario: I come back form days away ans have dozens, maybe hundreds, of unread mails in multiple folders, I may be already picked out a few priority ones,so they are now marked as 'read'. I then want to read as many 'unread' as time allows between other tasks (and sleep ). I click on the ones I want to read first - but they are still unread. I need to come back tomorrow and only read the ones that are genuinely unread.

    I can't imagine why anyone would like this behaviour, but if your solution is to have it controlled by a setting flag, fine. But this was reported in 2017, come on!

    Please allow a sweep rule to be set up from within a search results! It can only be done without a search at present, so impossible to set up unless item is very recent.

    Search results do not show time, only date; time is needed. Search results do not allow a Sweep rule to be created from a selected result, which is often part of tidying up results to get a clearer result, or would be if I could do it.

    Plenty of good ideas here (including mine). Sweep needs to be available form search results - you find lots of rubbish and want to clear it out, for example. The sweep rules should be able to be edited and added to from Rules options. we need to be able to choose either how many messages to keep, or how old., not just '10 days'.

    For example, I travel for up to 4 weeks in situations where I will only look at the most urgent personal emails.. I might want a rule to keep all daily newsletters from a source for 40 days to give me time to catch up when i get home, or the most recent 40. We used to have all these possibilities..

    Why 'recover' is wrong:- I delete something, it moves to the deleted folder. Maybe I then 'permanently' delete it, which i have to confirm - so that's three steps already (delete, delete again, confirm).. Then I am told I can 'recover' it. So let's say it something I really need to delete. Because I'm worried that someone who got access to my email could use it against me in some way, say, or because it was sent to me and is so hateful I want to be sure. Or some company sent me my password and login information in plain text and it's a security risk - which has happened more than once (and if I change the password they'll do it again!). Why aren't I allowed to REALLY delete that? Presumably archives for legitimate law enforcement with required court authorisation could be kept. But after three steps, gone should be gone, no one gaining access to my account should be able to recover stuff.

    This also relates to sub-folders. Somehow, a key folder has become a subfolder. The official advice is you can't reverse that in the Beta, but u can create a new high level folder and move all contents form subfolder to main folder,.But you can't. You can select all, but there is no 'Move option' and drag and drop doesn't work either.

    Major problem and always the same. Say someone has a landline, mobile and a work place. Plus a work address. they change jobs and now have only the mobile and a new email address. Amend the person, overtype the email address, delete the landline number. All looks fine. But when viewing the amended record, the old email address and the landline number are still there, and may be supplied when matching names on emails etc. I have screen shots but can't attach here? But easy to reproduce.

    Change an email address doesn't work! When I edit the contact in people, only the new address shows. But when I view the contact, or search for the name, the old and new email addresses are both shown, and the old address is prioritised. resulting in emails going to the wrong address and being rejected. And that's after removing the old address from cached suggestions.

    But also need to stop destroying my groups on the web-desktop which you have done multiple times, latest being as part of the migration to new outlook.

    On the desktop, categories are very useful. A 'flagged' category can even be used to get round the removal of a flagged item view across folders in new Outlook. But then we can't see the categories either on Outlook app or on browser access from any Android device.

    After 4 days migrating to outlook, setting up my aliases, notifying 1600 contacts which address - all aliases - to use, I now find the app doesn't support it. Right now, Microsoft help pages says the phone app DOES allow you send mail from any alias. In the UK it's illegal to promote products and services with false statements like that.

    I'm furious. Right now the pc Web version is dead, there have been problems for at least 24 hours. So Ii thought I'd send an urgent message from the app. But I can't, without revealing my real, default address, which is reserved for my closest family and friends.

    Hard to believe.
