  2. Filters Drag and Insert

    Ordering of filters list make it so you can drag them up or down.
    Adding a new filter make so you can select an existing filter and when you create the new filter have it insert at the current position in the list. If you have a bunch of filters and like to order them into groups then you have to click the up/down arrow a lot

  4. Unread

    I like the Unread option, but when I open an email in the unread folder it suddenly becomes "read" and disappears before I can actually read it. It should let you read it, but when you go back to the Unread folder that's when ti should disappear

  5. What happened to pasting copied image snippets? It used to work in the old UI. Sad!

  6. scroll

    When scrolling down in Inbox to get to messages that are out of the screen, the preview link at the bottom left hides the very message that I'm trying to read. This is very annoying especially when scrolling with arrow keys, because once I get to the message I want, I can't see the sender because it's hidden by the preview link. The only way to see the sender is to scroll one more message down and then back up, which defeats the purpose of scrolling with arrow keys. Please, FIX THIS!!!! And please, don't tell me to switch to…

  7. automatic folders

    Automatic folders please. When I have more than three unread messages from the same sender, I would like a folder to automatically be created and all messages from that sender will be put in there from that moment forward.

    I receive many emails from various businesses where they have sales on products. Right now I have over 1,000 unread mails, the majority being these sale emails. I don't keep up with them as I am not always in need of something from a particular store.

    And I NEED a place for them to go and be stored, where I can…

  9. Sent emails should not appear when Unread filter is used.

    The Unread email link in the left menu, clicking this displays unread emails, but it also displays Sent emails - I'm not sure why this occurs as all sent emails have been read, as I'm the sender!

  10. Folder Views

    You need to allow one to arrange folders in the order of usage frequency or preference, not just alphabetically!

  11. Windows 10 snipping tool no longer copy and pastes directly into mail.

    Windows 10 Snipping tool will not paste into draft. It works on Gmail and other programs. I use this on an hourly basis. It worked on Friday 7/18/17.

  12. Create New Contact by clicking on email address in an email

    You should be able to create a new contact by clicking on the email address in an email. You should be able to right click on an email address in an email and select an option to quickly add the email address as a new contact. Right now it is wayyy toooo many steps to add a new contact. I shouldn't have to cut and paste to get this simple job done...... Thank you.

  13. Show exact number of emails in Inbox

    I *hate* that no even the Inbox folder is showing 999+ instead of the exact number if you have more than 1000 emails. Please reinstate the exact count!

  15. I want to see Spam without needing to REMEMBER to click MORE. That was not a good imporovement!

    I want to see Spam without needing to REMEMBER to click MORE. That was not a good imporovement! Do you guys actually think that you are that good at determining what is spam and what is not? You are not. How arrogant of your industry to make that assumption.

  17. read/unread weirdness

    It's nicer than before, but here are some issues:
    1. When you're on email and you mark it as unread, when you switch to other email it reset to "read" again. (so it marks it as read not when you open it but when you close it?)
    2. when you reply to email it then opens the next email in the grid, which sucks combined with the above issue, something I didn't actually look at is marked as "read" now.
    3. Sorting by "unread" is laggy, still better than before, but emails you open appear to stay as "unread" then…

  18. calendar

    It's very irritating to have new tabs created whenevef I go to my calendar or contacts. I only need one tab (one instance) of my mail. Fix this: decide how to implement the calendar and contacts function well or take them away (the latter would be a huge mistage!)
