Outlook Mail (Preview) - Diagnostics report: where to send?

I had a problem with a message rule and selected the option to report it. The page answered with an error message, but some time later I received an email from myself entitled Diagnostics report - Please forward to customer support. It has five attachments and this text:

This message was automatically generated by the diagnostics tool.
The attachments and information below will help resolve your issue.
Please add any additional information below this text and forward this mail to customer support.


Can you tell me where I should send it?

Thanks. I'm sure you don't need all of that!


The account in question is ~ @ outlook.com, PUID nnnnnnnnnnnnnnnn. Please feel free to access it.


I created a rule to forward particular messages to a different account. The rule didn't work because the address being forwarded to was corrupted as the DSN reports:

Delivery has failed to these recipients or groups:

~ @ msn.com
There's a problem with the recipient's mailbox. Please try resending the message. If the problem continues, please contact your email admin.

I've attached the DSN to this message, along with the diagnostics report resulting from this action shown in the screenshot.

Let me know if there's more you need.

Hi,

Please provide us the following information so that we can further investigate:

1> Screenshot for the Outlook.com inbox
2> Decrypted Fiddler logs.

3> Date when emails went missing/ no of emails/no of folders. 

Please try to search for the missing emails using Outlook.com search UI. Check the deleted folder.

Thanks.

1> Screenshot for the Outlook.com inbox 

Sorry, but this error arose a long time ago (6 May) so I don't have a screenshot to share. In any case, the error had nothing to do with the inbox or receiving messages; it was a fault with a rule forwarding certain messages.

2> Decrypted Fiddler logs. 

What do you want me to log? The fault arose only at Outlook on the Web, where the address to be forwarded to was corrupted so that the message could not be delivered. There was no HTTP transaction with my computer to be captured.

3> Date when emails went missing/ no of emails/no of folders. 

I haven't lost any emails or folders.

I think your reply must have been intended for someone else.

A simple question (which address should the report be forwarded to?) produced an exceedingly complicated and completely ineffectual result.
