    Interesting that people are blaming Microsoft Outlook for the exponential increase in junk mail hitting ALL email providers and believing that moving to another platform is the solution. The longer an email address has been around, the more junk email lists it eventually winds up on. Changing to a completely new address on any platform, including Outlook, will suddenly result in a dramatic decrease in SPAM—for a while (depending also on user behavior).

    The grass is not always greener on the other side. A sample of many complaints in the Gmail help forum:

    " ...literally over 80% of the messages in my spam folder are legitimate. I'm missing important emails consistently, and it is getting so annoying that I am considering moving providers."

    "The problem is you send feedback to google and they don't care... Gmail has no support whatsoever. My companies emails have been getting blocked for a week to all Gmail and gsuite accounts..."

    If you implement this change, please make it optional. There are ways to display the full email address without ruining the detail and navigation pane views with chaotic, untidy email addresses.

    I support this only if it's optional.

    I support LGBT protections/rights and also love rainbow colors. However, I think it's misguided to try and promote political and moral views inside applications used by many different cultures around the world. Keep the rainbow, drop the explicit promotion of values inside of applications.

    I love the fact that selecting a favorite contact quickly displays all their emails. However, the implementation is clumsy. A list of favorite contacts is out of place in an email navigation pane. Constantly having to scroll through them all to reach email folders is annoying. At least make the list collapsible so it's not in the way when not in use. Ultimately, Outlook for Android desperately needs a people section and favorite people belong there. But that's another feedback idea...

    pistepass.com is in my Blocked Senders list, but an email from ᴏʟғd00ug3.2y7b5h@pistepass.com appeared in my inbox a couple days later.

    In addition to creating annoying clutter, Including deleted items in search results by default can cause confusion. For example, the Outlook.com browser client shows source folder for all search results, but the Windows 10 app does not—probably causing many to unnecessarily interact with deleted items multiple times.

    "Just empty deleted items" is not a good solution for those who want to keep deleted items around for a while in case of a mistake. Immediately deleting everything defeats the purpose of having a deleted items folder.

    I've also encountered "You cannot make changes to contents of this read-only folder" when trying to delete a birthday reminder in Outlook for Office 365. That particular contact had already been removed from Outlook and Google contacts and the birthday no longer appeared in Google calendar. I finally tried deleting it using Outlook.com and IT WORKED! Perhaps there's a problem with some legacy code in the Outlook for Office 365 app.

    I think it's unfortunate that someone decided to merge my suggestion with this one. This suggestion is asking to show only new mail that has arrived since last checked which I don't necessarily agree with.

    My suggestion below is for the badge to only count email from contacts marked as Favorites in People.

    These are two very different behaviors. Please consider separating them or at least have someone from the Microsoft team clarify if both functionalities are being considered, but as separate options.

    PLEASE add an option for the badge notification to display only new email from contacts marked as Favorites.

    I get a lot of email . Even after setting Outlook badge count to show only emails in the Focused view, the count is usually too high to be useful. Focused vs Other is very helpful, but anyone who gets tons of email needs something more fine-grained. For example, after marking your mom, significant other and boss as favorites in Outlook People, the badge would never show more than 3. And those would be the only emails you really want to check immediately. Badge counts like "67" or "99+" or even "28" are meaningless when you glance at your phone to see if anything really important came in recently. I want to keep things such as bills and clients in my focused view, but I'm not going to stop in the middle of whatever I'm doing to read them all!

    Samsung mail got this feature for a long time ago with their VIP list. Microsoft Outlook has really improved and deserves this killer feature as well.

    Even using focused inbox (which I like BTW), I still get a meaningless number like 99 on the Outlook icon badge. I only want to see the number of emails from a handful of VIP's. Samsung mail has had this for years.

    This idea was posted four years ago and now has well over 600 votes and we're yet to see any acknowledgement that it's being worked on or at least considered. Why is such an obvious feature so difficult for Microsoft to understand?

    I'm surprised there aren't a lot more votes for this. VIP is a killer feature in Samsung's email app and shows only unread VIP email count in badges when activated instead of a meaningless huge number. Why can't Microsoft do this?

    Please add a feature to mark people/senders as VIPs with the ability to sort/prioritize emails accordingly, but also set the notification badge to only show the count for new VIP emails instead of all emails. I discovered how incredibly useful this last feature was when I tried Samsung email. Otherwise, I would have deleted it in favor of Outlook email.

    SPAM email suddenly arriving in my inbox. Unlike some who have reported lots of SPAM getting to their inbox for months or years, Outlook SPAM filtering has generally been great for me—until today: 2019.07.08. Suddenly, over the last 8 hours or so, about 9 or 10 obvious SPAM and even phishing email scams have made it into my focused inbox. I want to report this separately in case some server-side changes were made today. I have not made any changes on the client side. Please do not take the lazy way out and suggest that I configure outlook to only allow email from addresses in my safe senders list. My Junk email configuration was working fine for more than a year—until today.

    Come on people. To think you can get email service for free is magical thinking. By now you should realize, either you pay for the product or YOU are the product. I love being ad-free with my Office 365 subscription. However, I agree ads should NEVER be flashing, jumping or using other annoying attention-getting methods—unless you're trying to drive all free users away on purpose.
