      • Ability to change Delay of Delivery Default setting

        Dear Outlook Developers,

        I work in a management position in a school. Our team often work out of hours. To ensure faculty do not feel they have to respond to emails out of hours, our team use Delay of Delivery. The problem they (and I) have faced is that Delay of Delivery defaults to 5.00 pm. We want to be able to have it default to the start of a working day, not the end. It is possible to scroll up to 8.00 am or another time earlier in the day but this is very time consuming as this has…

            • Unbury the Conversations/Messages format feature from the Filter control

              This quirky little feature is cause for more grief than it needs to be, mainly because it's effectively buried where no one can easily find it... ;-)

              The "modes" of Conversations vs. Messages currently cause the Reply button to appear/disappear depending on which mode is active, which is difficult to assess because no one, including MS Support, seems to know that this behavior exists or how to turn it on/off or that it directly impacts the presence/absence of the Reply button in the primary toolbar area.

              So it'd be great if Outlook were updated in a couple very useful ways.…

                    • Printing Task Summary

                      I would like the option of printing a task summary, possibly with the ability to print only those tasks at a certain stage.

                      For example, rather then printing every task individually, it would be nice to be able to print a summary of ongoing jobs. This would make workflow meetings much easier to manage.

                      Also, if we can print a summary of completed jobs by date, we would be able to look back and which jobs were finalised for a period.

                      I think the printing of a task summary is available to desktop versions of outlook, but it would be…

                      • Automatically click find more on server, when searching in cached exchange mode

                        There should be a checkbox under advanced settings that would allow Outlook to click the "Find more on the server" link automatically when performing searched.

                        When using cached exchange mode in Outlook, and when it is set to less than "all" (i.e. upto 24 months of cached mail) Outlook search only returns results from your cache.

                        There may be more results on exchange, but you have to click a link for it to do that. This should be automated. Especially since OST files are limited to 50 gb but exchange online service can offer 100gb of mailbox space.

                        This is…

                                An extra choice should be inserted to the settings of
                                spam filter so that the filter can be omitted.
                                In this case, only 100% secure spams will automatically
                                be filtered. Any mail that is not recognized as
                                a 100% spam, should be received as accepted.
                                Mails moved to the spam folder must always be informed,
                                mere message counter of the folder is not good enough
                                for this.

                                  Au sein de mail de Outlook.com, il serait bien de pouvoir configurer dans les réglages le nom de l’expéditeur: le compte outlook étant de forme "prénom/nom" de base, de pouvoir changer pour l'envoi d'e-mail sous la forme "nom/prénom" <@outlook.com>.

                                  • Personalization

                                    Personalization. Users should be able to have more personalization options, like choice of backgrounds and themes. And, what about some simple animations here and there. This helps keeps the experience fresh and fun.

                                      • Forward multiple emails at once

                                        I would like to have the option to forward multiple emails to a recipient at once, i.e. selecting more than one email and forwarding them to a particular address, rather than forwarding one by one.

                                        • ReUse Previous Passwords

                                          Allow previous passwords to be reused as new passwords.

                                          This can be useful for people with Memory Problems or Mental Disabilities
