    The user experience is really annoying. The unread count on the list of folders constantly gets out of sync with what is actually happening in the folders themselves. When creating a rule it often gets stuck on the "Creating Rule" pop up, then not applying the rule, which is probably just a refresh of the inbox issue. The "Keep me signed in" checkbox has not worked for years. Having LastPass makes that less painful, but still, having to click "Sign In" then "Next" twice EVERY time is annoying.

    I want to see emails in a particular folder from 2004. I estimate that I would need to scroll for about 45 minutes to reach that year. This seems like a simple function, and it also seems that Hotmail used to have this function.

    Hey, thanks for the feedback!

    Is it possible that you’re accessing OWA from a different browser each time you’re signing in? The “Keep Me Signed In” feature will only work if you access from the same browser on the same computer in normal browsing mode.

    If you access in private browsing mode, it will not remember your “Keep Me Signed In” preference.

    Alternatively, if you clear your cookies, it will not remember your sign in preferences.

    Can you give us any more details about what’s going on?

    Colin

    "keep me signed in" does not work for me. I tried different browsers. Other apps with this feature work properly, so it's not some setting in the browsers like "clear cookies on exit"

    Could it be that lastpass is interfering with "Keep me signed in" and causing outlook to ignore that I checked the box? Or maybe Chrome. I should test it in FF...
