Agree! With two accounts starting with the same letter, selecting between them using a simple graphic with just a letter does not make it easy for the user!
Agree with comments where users want new messages at the top instead of the bottom! Make this a user option
Microsoft - don’t truncate subject lines when sending web links! Why even do this?! If I send a web link, you only allow a fixed character length for a subject, so usually cuts off half of the subject line. Fix this!
Microsoft - if you are offering a client on a platform (iOS) where there is a default client (Apple mail) that works pretty well, at least offer feature parity! I have to use IOS Mail to send scaled images since Outlook iOS can not. Dumb...
There is a way to delete items from trash and junk mail folders when using safari on an iphone by selecting all and deleting them, but NOT on an ipad - the same selection options is not available on an ipad.
Does anyone at microsoft ever test this stuff?
When viewing the mobile outlook.com
Web site on an iOS device using Safari, there is no way to empty the trash or empty the junk mail folder. There needs to be.
Inbox rules that use email aliases for the primary outlook.com email account do not work correctly. If a rule is created that uses the alias as a TO condition, ALL email for the primary email address, including any other associated aliases, are affected by the rule!
So, if I have a rule that looks for mail to an alias, then moves that message to a folder, all mails to the primary address and all other aliases associated with the primary address are moved to the folder - only email sent to the specified alias should be moved, and not the other messages.
Steps to reproduce: on an outlook.com email address that has at least one alias associated with the primary address...
- create a rule that uses an alias as a TO condition (so email sent to the alias!) and move it to another folder
- send a test email to the alias to see if the rule works
- send a test mail to the primary email address to see if it is affected by the rule (should not be, but is)
- send a test email to another alias associated with the primary address to see if it is affected by the rule (should not be, but is)
