  1. Add a sent folder for shared email addresses.

    Every time I send an email from the shared email, I have to manually cc otherwise my sent email will go into my personal folder and my coworker won't be able to see what I sent out. Please add a sent folder to shared email addresses on outlook.

  2. SCL and BCL column

    SPAM is not as simple as a “yes” or “no” answer. Users should be able to add a column in Outlook to display the SCL and BCL values at a glance. Today it requires a good bit of knowledge and extra hoop jumping to examine the headers to get these details that can otherwise be very valuable to an end user trying to determine the value of an email.

  5. Under "all accounts > inbox" colour code the email addresses

    When viewing "all accounts" it's not really useful if you have multiple email addresses because you can't differentiate which email belongs to each account, so I primarily select each email and manage accordingly. Would be great if you could colour code them!

  13. Add an option in Preferences to 'Allow' or 'Not Allow' automatic launch of Outlook at Login

    See suggestion above. This will reduce waiting time at Login if the desired application to start right away is other than Outlook (which takes a long time to complete)

  14. Add capability for notes directly on individual emails

    There are times when I get emails in, and I have some thoughts on responding, but I don't have time to respond immediately. I want to be able to jot down the thoughts "onto" the email (without making a draft, too clunky). This is also useful for allowing me to summarize long emails into a quick note pain (basically, Review Comments in Word but on emails) and then give me the ability to search them (also maybe automatically tag them as haveComments or something).

  19. mail expiry

    Please include a confidential mode like GMAIL which enables the users on MAC to set an expiry date to the mails they send to receipients. For instance if am sending a mail tp Mr.X, it contains sensitive information (like bank statement) i want to set an expiry date after which Mr.X wont be able to view the message. Am talking about MAC users
