    The feature works, but I have to enter it in the notebook. It doesn't seem to work automatically from emails.
    Ya same here. Manually entered works fine, but determining from emails doesn't. I hope it comes back and wasn't removed because some dummies were crying about privacy.

    Privacy is a valid issue that hardly deserves name calling. This is why Microsoft has privacy OPTIONS that you can select and deselect.

    With that said, in the privacy settings in Cortana, under Flights and More, it specifically mentions it should be able to DETECT tracking info... so I'm just assuming that feature is broken atm.

    Privacy is a serious issue, but most of the crying about Windows 10 and privacy has been seriously uninformed and ignores the fact that there are indeed settings (or flat out stated as they don't really do anything).

    I'm aware of the wording, but given how long this has not been working and that it's a prominent feature, its possible it was disabled but they forgot to change the UI (or perhaps can't at the moment).

    Oh, when I first started with Win10, it'd show up in the card list automatically. Was really impressive, even though it was limited to showing only two cards at time, even if more were being tracked. But now, nothing. I wish I needed to book a flight to see if that's still working or if she's just not scanning my emails anymore. I'm not sure if it matters, but my email is on my own Exchange server (I run a domain network at home). Thought maybe there was a change to not scan Exchange server accounts. That would be disappointing if not configurable.

    It looks like she's keeping an eye on a couple packages right now coming in Thurs and Fri.

    Apparently it still isn't working, as I just tried it now.

    It works for those who are using Windows 10 OS, not sure about it working on the 8 OS. Even adds packages in route sometimes to calendar. All though it has only done this a few times for me when I order from Amazon.

    Works really well for me on desktop, laptop and mobile, specifically for stuff coming from Amazon.

    This USED TO work fine for me, but doesn't any more. I have a UPS tracking number and UPS will show its status, but Cortana doesn't display a card for it despite the fact that I added it to the notebook. Doesn't work on Windows 10 Desktop or 950xl. And it used to. :-(
