  4. day headers show only resource ID in grid view

    Bug report:
    Using Chrome and FireFox browsers, all is good.
    Using Msft Edge, in the grid view of the message threads, the group headers for the day's names and "today", "yesterday", "last week" all show up as 4-digit resource ID numbers instead of the text.

  5. Make contact updates immediate

    When I add contacts to a group they should be available immediately when used in a new or forwarded email. Changes to contacts should also be immediate. I have added new contacts to a list, but they do not appear when I use that list.

  7. dropbox

    Dropbox access needs to be added back to emails so that large files can be sent. If this isn't added, then i'll have to go to a new email provider and I've had yahoo for 20 years.

  11. Sorting bars above email messages

    Can we have sorting bars above the email messages? This way we can just click on the bar above the relevant column to sort (e.g. from, subject, date, etc) instead of clicking on a drop down menu to search for the sorting option.

    Also, if an email is selected and then the sorting option is clicked, that email message should remain selected. This helps with searching or browsing.
    For instance, if I select an email from "John" and I click on the sort by name bar, all emails from all Johns should be together; if I select an email whose…

  15. Make conversation view an option rather than default

    The thread feature is very confusing. I often need to respond to specific emails without replying to an entire thread. Email feature should include option to read and reply to emails individually with thread/conversation view as an option rather than default.

  18. I am frustrated because it used to be simple to set up a vacation response. The menu with vacation repsonse does not appear.

    I do not want to give an idea just to say the instructions for vacation message no longer work for me. I have done it often in the past. But no menu with vacation repsonse will appear for me now. I have watched the video and read the instructions but it is not like that when I do it. Only circles and boxes re font size and colour . I can't find anything else in settings, not like it used to be. I have given up. No vacation message this time. I tried to go back to classic mail but…

  19. By allowing to sort by recipient in the sent box

    Cannot sort mail by recipient in the sent box. They are usually all sent by the same person.

  20. single line e-mails, columns that are sortable, preview on right

    I'm tired of posting this every year. We all just want maximum space efficiency, to be able to see lots of e-mail (sortable) and see a decent preview pane of the selected e-mail. There is already an answer and has been for years. Just look at old fashioned outlook. Sortable columns, one line e-mails, and preview on the right... and please remove all the dead space at the top while you are at it... however I fiddle about with the settings I can only see 8 e-mails at a time without scrolling...in Outlook on this laptop I can see 28…
