  1. Show as Out of Office shading - Outlook 2016

    The shading for the Show as Out of Office needs to be much darker in Outlook 2016, just as it was in earlier versions. It is very annoying that you are no longer able to scan the calendar for out of office days due to the color change.

    • Give us more than three lousy formats to "choose" from on new Outlook Mail

      Fire the 20 y.o. software engineers who keep designing upgrades that cause extreme eye strain. Now we have outlook mail with only three screen choices, one of which is text on the far right...ever heard of astigmatism? NONE of the choices let us look at an extensive list of emails we're working from... Why can't you leave Outlook alone ?

      • create an easier way to be reached for people struggling with disability

        I have been locked out of my old e-mail, who knows why. And I am struggling reaching anyone to help me. I have a learning disability and you guys have made it very hard/ impossible to call or help me get it back. I have submitted over 10 recovery forms, and none have worked. I am so beyond frustrated.

        • Get rid of the new outlook mail, bring back the classic version!!!! Now!!!

          Was forced this morning to use your new version of Outlook Mail. I am very dissatisfied with it. It is unusable !!! I cannot even read text in the tiny windows I am now forced to use. This is totally unacceptable!!!
          Bring back the Classic Version of Outlook Mail to my account NOW or I will be leaving you and telling everyone of my dissatisfaction !!!

                      • Make outlook.com accessible to screenreaders. Preferably provide a light version.

                        Outlook.com remains very inaccessible to Jaws and other screenreaders. The articles that have been posted on this subject are not very helpful and have not been updated in some time. Some email providers offer a light or basic html version, and Microsoft should do something similar here if they value accessibility.

                              • Add a function to be able to choose to NOT save sent items in your sent folder.

                                It would be nice, like in Outlook on a PC, if you could have the option to NOT automatically save sent email (saved in sent folder). Many of us in my office do not like to automatically save sent email. If it's critical, I just cc myself. I was able to do this when I was on a PC. Mac does not give that option.
