    You have only heard of email addresses as userIDs, and you can't believe that people login to their SMTP server with different credentials to their IMAP server. It was a long battle but we finally won this argument with the Web Outlook, but now it has to be fought all over again with Desktop Outlook.

    So to be clear: I need to log in to my IMAP server with a UserID that is not in the form of an emails address: I need to log in to my SMTP server with a different UserID which again is not an email address.

    And don't bother searching for a server that appears to handle the email address I quote, I don't want that either.

    The best way to improve this "experience" would be to remove it. As of now, the "improvement" is a bit like improving a toolbox by removing everything except one big hammer.

    The registry hack on the support page, and quoted (edited) below, is wrong. It is not
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Policies\Office\16.0\Outlook\setup
    but
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Office\16.0\Outlook\setup
    i.e. delete Policies

    Doh.

    Why doesn't the "Advanced" button in this "Experience" (which does nothing useful except hide a check box) just go to the original dialog??

    You can disable this "experience"? How?! It's an experience I can do without. Let me get back to a dialog that actually works for anything not on Planet Microsoft i.e. most of this world.

    1. Yes, I can still use the Control Panel .cpl - don't ever think you can throw that away
    2. Apparently there's a registry hack - that's not friendly.

    It's worse, the app refuses to use ActiveSync to connect to any outlook account, it insists on using the Exchange Server mode which prevents choice of email address. I've given up and am using the BlackBerry Hub, which is altogether better (if you ignore the ads).

    Correct method is to add "domian.com" (not a wildcard address). But it makes no difference, "safe" emails still go to junk.

    This should be the default action when an email is marked as Not Spam. Hiding the action way down the … menu is unfriendly. Not that the safe senders list works, I get mail from safe senders still going to junk.

    That's why it's junk... The problem is that safe senders are being put into junk forcing us to have to sort through the junk. It's that that needs fixed, the safe list doesn't work.

    The junk filtering is now so trigger-happy it makes it completely useless. I have had to set my phone to get notifications for junk because all my important mail is going to junk. It would be much better to have no filtering at all than having this ridiculous level of false positives.

    Absolutely. This is crazy. I expected this to be on the Advanced Settings switch where it belongs, not on the "?" help button . Put it there. I have wasted hours trying to find a way round this after being forced onto the IMAP settings page by autodiscovery - which I didn't want.

    Why is the default reminder for an all day event STILL set to 18 hours? Who thought of that? 12 hours would be more sensible.

    We already have a "Next 7 days " view, what we want is a "Next 28 days View" in grid-style. Better: select 2/3/4/5 weeks ahead.

    Here we are on 31 October, I go to my calendar and in the Month View I'm shown stuff starting from 25 September, 5 weeks ago. I want to know what I'm going to do, not what I've already done. The Win10 Calendar app's month view starts with the current week, so you can do it in Outlook too.

    Or at least on the first day of each week so it can be seen looking down the grid
