    The option to “discard” suggested contacts in your chat list is rolling out to users. We will be making further changes to make suggested contacts more relevant for new users in the future as well, so marking as partially completed. Thanks for your patience with this one.

    Please remove this annoying feature. I never use Other Suggestions, and find it very annoying to see contacts that are irrelevant, deleted from my address book, and even dead - regularly appear here. My screen is cluttered enough with the abominable ribbon, without even more space stolen by this. All that I, and most of the other correspondents seem to want is a tick box in "Settings" to disable it, and perhaps a way to edit it for the very few who find it useful.

    The Recent Contacts facility is also useless. Why does the algorithm think that I will want to contact again a person who I've only written to once recently, and prior to that not for years? I want to be able to turn this off, not just delete names each time. I know how I want Outlook to look. Microsoft does not.
