  1. Allow a 'plain text only" message and a plain text only flag per contact (multiple platforms)

    Previous versions of Outlook (mac and win) permitted a truly plain text only option for sending messages, and a option in Contacts to tell Outlook to use plain text only for this recipient. The "plain text" preference for composing messages appears to exist, but unreliable in application, and the setting in Contacts appears to have disappeared entirely. For those of us who need to communicate with people who can handle text only, can both of these options be corrected?

      • Enable Creating Email Templates on outlook.com (Browser)

        Currently, email templates can only be created on the outlook.com application. Would be good if this function can be extended to the browser as well.

          • Avoiding an accidentally sending of incomplete 'Reply All'

            On my official company outlook email of 'reply all', there is a risk of hitting send button while reply was still not completed. For such a large forum, I would like to hit reply all, hit lock button (new button to be available on reply all screen), complete the reply, hit unlock button (caption changed to unlock when you locked) , hit send. I think this will be a good edition for all the important replies that need some thinking but is addressed to many important people.

                                Dear friends, I did dozens and dozens of requests to increase and put other domains on the mail mail box. I asked to place the domains hotmail.it, live.it, live.com but so far no one answered me. Also I also asked to increase the colors for email formatting, but you did not even answer me. Many users are angry with you, you want to make and improve this email box, otherwise I will be making a complaint and not just myself but also hundreds of users. Look forward to your answer

                                  • I asked why I can't hit the Tab key and indent a paragraph and I'm told there is no way to do this! I have to space in manually! Why?

                                    I asked why I can't hit the Tab key and indent a paragraph and I'm told there is no way to do this! I have to space in manually! Why? With all your technology, it seems like a simple thing. Can't you come up with some kind of a work-around:? I just can't believe you guys can't do this. I just spent many frustrating days going back and forth with Outlook Support because I couldn't get my "case manager" to talk to me in layman's language. Please don't pull the same thing on me.

                                    • Correctly support quoted text in replies (multiple platforms)

                                      Past releases of both Mac Outlook and Win Outlook supported including the text of a previous email in a reply with a prefix of ">" on each line. The current release on Mac seems to support only indentation for quoted text, and the Windows version appears to ignore the preference for quoted text in replies regardless of what is set (again preferring indentation over what it was told to do). Can you please respect the preference setting -- not everyone is using a GUI mail tool, and we need to be able to compose intelligent replies that include previous messages…

                                      • Make sending email faster so it doesn't end up in draft mode

                                        Many times my email ends up in my DRAFT folder after I hit send. This never happened before you upgraded last year. Either make it so all my send email goes through draft file before sending but it is so inconsistent. And I must remember to check my folder to make sure it gets sent.
