    It does work under the People tab, but it does not work under Mail, e.g., under the "to" field when composing a new message. They should work identically.

    The "to" search is a lot more restricted than previously. It ought to work exactly like the search in People, i.e., it ought to search through company, notes, nicknames, and all other contact fields. Currently, it only looks through name and email address.

    I agree, but only if it's an option that can be disabled.

    This is also a duplicate of suggestion number 36289948.

    I completely agree. It's natural to assume any information entered into a contact is searchable. Why wouldn't it be?

    I can't emphasize this enough. It would enable most users to make a real use of inbox rules. Currently, it's very difficult to troubleshoot and optimize inbox rules.

    I'm still getting legitimate mail marked as spam, and spam passing through. It would cut down significantly on the time and effort required to tune rules, ultimately moving users much closer to the goal of preventing unwanted mail without sacrificing legitimate mail.

    Although I disagree with the tone and temper of this suggestion entry, the point that Inbox Rules should incorporate the ability to target e-mails by the sender's display name is an important one. I frequently receive phishing e-mails in my inbox that circumvent keywords that commonly appear in malicious e-mails in the sender’s address, the subject and body, yet still use them in the display name. 

These are e-mails anybody would be able to discern is malicious, yet I can’t touch them because the display name as a target is inaccessible to me when creating inbox rules.

    Ironically, these e-mails often come with a friendly warning attached, alerting me that the message seem suspicious, a courteous Outlook.com feature, but they’re still piped freshly into my inbox as soon as they hit Microsoft mail servers. The lesson here is that the Outlook.com team appears to be capable of identifying these malicious e-mails as such, and if they were to just direct them into my Junk folder as they correctly do with most junk, I wouldn’t need to worry about any lack of support for targeting display names in my inbox rules.

As long as that isn’t the case, however, I and many other otherwise happy Outlook.com users would greatly appreciate the ability to target sender display names (not to mention the BCC field while we’re already maintaining our own personal spam filters).

    At the rules list, some of the previously created rules are not editable, and instead display the following error message: "This rule was created using the desktop version of Outlook. You can't view or edit it here." In my case, that's impossible since I've never used the desktop version of Outlook, let alone created rules using it.
