    Get rid of the Top Results section in the message search Results list. No way that MS can determine what is top for me. Hugely distracting, confusing, and a waste of screen space.

    The "Top results" feature in web mail search results is useless and distracting. Please get rid of it or give an option for users to not display it.

    Top Results is very distracting and is useless to begin with. There is no algorithm that could possibly predict what I need when I search my email.

    Slight improvement in the last 24 hours, with "only" 54 true spam messages in my Junk Email folder. But, still highly distracting and risks the user deleting a valid email from someone not in your contact list.

    In just 24 hours, over 140 spam emails poured into my Junk folder. The distraction of reviewing these constantly during the day and the time that it takes to look at each one to ensure that it is not an email from a new contact is unsustainable. Please fix the spam filtering so that users are not subjected to all this spam.

    97 spam messages in just the last 14 hours. @MSFT Must stop the FLOOD of Spam into our junk folders! Each one must be looked at to ensure that it is not a legitimate message.

    The torrent of spam that lands in the Junk folder is overwhelming. Every spam message sender or topic HAS to be read to be sure that it is not legitimate mail from a sender who is not in your contact list. That means that, several times per hour we must interrupt our work to read SPAM. If this isn't fixed soon, I'll have to move to Gmail. 50-100 spam messages per day is unsustainable.

    164 spam messages in my Junk Email folder in just 17 HOURS. It's mind numbing. Why can't MS keep this spam away from users so that we don't have to review each message to be sure we aren't missing a legitimate message?

    It could easily be 150 spam messages in my junk mail folder today, with still almost 2 hours left in the day. How are users supposed to get any work done if we have to spend all day reviewing spam messages to make sure there aren't legitimate messages in the junk folder from senders who we haven't yet added to our safe lists? Please fix the spam.

    Another 44 spam messages on top of the 85 that I reported for the first 14 hours of the day, and the day isn't over yet. Each one of these has to at least have the sender or subject reviewed. This is an extraordinary time sink.

    85 spam mails in my Junk folder in just over 14 hours. Still almost 10 hours to go in the day. Each subject or sender has to be looked at by the user to ensure that legitimate emails are not accidentally deleted. This is outrageous. MS must use their deep intelligence and block these spam messages. So many have the same supposed sender name or subject. Why are they allowed to enter a user's junk mail folder for the user to review?

    There must have been 100 spam messages in my junk folder so far today. This volume takes a great deal of time to review and is distracting from my work. Plus, I have often missed a legitimate message that was in my Junk folder because it surrounded by tens of spam messages. Please cut down the amount of spam that users receive.

    Still getting way too much spam in my junk folder. This morning, woke up to 35 spam messages just from overnight. Most troublesome are financial-related spam messages.

    Still getting 30 to 50 spam messages a day, some of which are financial phishing emails. Please stop these messages from landing in user's junk mail folder where the user must review each one to be sure that it is truly spam

    Why do users ever see emails from such obvious scam addresses like "Fidelity Life <2iYSGYlw@2iYSGYlw2iYSGYlw.com>." Users should never be exposed to such emails, even if the email goes to the junk folder.

    And another 39 spam mails into my junk folder yesterday, August 25th, 2019. Besides the lost time to review and delete each message and the potentially hazardous links in these messages, they increase the risk that a valid message will be accidentally lost. There is even a message in this batch from a fake microsoft account (noreply@microsoft.com ` <haihulc@hotmail.com>). How can MS not automatically catch those before they get to users?

    On Saturday, August 24, 2019, I received 50 junk emails, many of them being phishing emails related to financial offerings. MS must keep these emails out of consumer's mailboxes entirely, not just put them in a junk folder.

    Today alone, about 35 spam emails. Many are for financial services and thus should be considered to be phishing emails.

    Thank you for your feedback! This feature is planned and will come to the beta in a future update. We will reply back when it is available.

    Restore ability to find all messages from a sender by hovering over sender's name in the InBox. This function was removed when Outlook.com was updated a few months ago.

    Ability to drag recipients in between the To, CC, and BCC fields is broken. This is an extremely valuable feature to me. Please restore it. It is the only way to ensure that you are sending to the correct address without typos when doing a reply all but need to rearrange the recipients.

    PLEASE!! restore the indented list of folders that has always been available under the MOVE command. There can't possibly be a use case for taking away the indents for subfolders.

    MitCol commented  · 

    Please restore indents to the list of folders under 'Move to'. The indents are a visual cue to help users navigate the hierarchy of their folder structure. I might have 'Approval' folders under mutliple project folders. I need to see the indents to make it clear where I am as I scroll through the folder list. PLEASE RESTORE THE INDENTS THAT USED TO BE THERE.

    Restore indents for subfolders in the Move To menu, please.

    Please provide an option to remove the circle with senders initials that appears in the email header area. The circle and initials are distracting, they don't ADD any useful information, and the initials get copied when you select the text of the subject line, sender, and date; those initials and the extra line break then have to be manually deleted from the copied text. But the major issue that that the circle and initials are distracting. Your designers and executives must think that they are cute and hip. They are not.

    A quick option for adding to Safe Senders and to Safe Mailing Lists would be enormously helpful.

    PLEASE provide an option to display the FULL name of EVERY attachment to messages received and being composed.
    Microsoft has created a highly HAZARDOUS situation in which it is difficult to notice mistakes in which files are attached to a new message.

    Please provide an option to display full file attachment names -- not hovering over the icon, but full text display of the attachments. You have a little drop down that displays the actual date/time for messages, why not a drop down to display full file names? YOU CREATE A TERRIBLE PERSONAL AND BUSINESS RISK by hiding the full file names. YOU LEAVE USERS SUBJECT TO ATTACHING AN INCORRECT DOCUMENT and unable to quickly eyeball a message before sending it to ensure it is correct.

    Show full attachment file names by default. It drives me bananas that I have to hover over your ridiculous truncated file names to be able to see the full name. You have created a workflow obstacle and introduce an error prone environment.

    You absolutely must show full attachment names so that they are viewable and prominent in the context of an email. By truncating attachment names and by not showing all attachments automatically, you create tremendous business and personal risk for users. A user may misunderstand which file is attached to a received email or fail to attach the intended file to a sent email. This is a crucial feature of email that you have disrupted in a very bad way.
    Please do not ask me to send a screenshot or other documentation, as what I am speaking of is the now standard user interface in Outlook.com.

    Please add "Add to your safe list" as an option along with "Add to your contacts." That way, it makes it easy to allow newsletters to come in without having to go through extra menus of adding to safe list.

    When using the "search email and people" search box, if you type in a person's name and select a name from the populated search suggestions, the search defaults to "from."
    However, most often when I am searching for an email I am looking for emails sent EITHER from or to that person.
    Please eliminate the default "from" or provide a search that is both "from" and "to."
    As it stands, I usually have to delete the "from" parameters, or else I am misled and think that I never sent an email to that person.
    Do you have USER-BASED evidence to provide that 95% of users only want to find messages "from" a specific person? If not, then why did your engineers decide to only offer "from" results?
