  1. stop trying to verify my subscription on startup

    I have paid in advance for one year. So why does Microsoft need to verify my subscription every time I start up outlook from a fresh reboot? If I am offline, I get a pop-up explaining that outlook could not verify my subscription. one of the options is 'remind me later, in which everything continues to work anyway. What is the point in this rubbish message? Get rid of it!

  2. Reinstate Auto text/ Quick Parts in Outlook 2016. Critical for things like conference call #s etc. Shouldn't have been removed!

    Critical for things like conference call #s, meeting invite details. etc. Shouldn't have been removed in the first place!

  4. Add a shortcut to toggle folder pane

    I do most of my work in the inbox, but not all. A quick way to show/hide the pane would be useful.

  5. ios

    Match capabilities of the Outlook iOS app. Like pause/scheduling emails to disappear and reappear on pre-selected days. These apps should match features.

  6. keep me logged in

    Why does Outlook make me keep logging in to O365 constantly. Keep me logged in already. For at least a day or preferably a few days, or let me choose how long

  7. stop using wingdings

    Emails received from Windows users have emoticons displayed as "J". It turns out some idiot Microsoft developer is converting :) to Wingdings font specific character, which in fact violates unicode standards. Broken.

  8. I suggest you to create a stable, functioning version of outlook, which never crashed and keeps resilience during work. It's a real pain in

    I suggest you to create a stable, functioning version of outlook, which never crashed and keeps resilience during work. It's a real pain in *** that each time something changes at network settings (getting into VPN, getting out of VPN, changing from cable network to WIFI) Outlook just plain crashes and has to be restarted. When will you ever provide stable software?

  9. Support Salesforce Lightning for Outlook integration

    When Lightning for Outlook finishes rendering in Outlook, a yellow banner reading "The option to relate emails isn't available now. Please check back shortly." gets displayed, effectively preventing associations of Outlook items with Salesforce records to be made. Or a red banner reading "Because Microsoft Exchange isn't available now, you can't relate emails and their attachments to Salesforce records until Exchange is available again."

  10. use gravatar for contacts that have no profile image but do have a gravatar

    When a contact does not have a profile image but the user does have a gravatar image it would be nice if outlook used the gravatar image instead of the default coloured cirlce with initials.

  13. I suggest you create a button to turn off the "What's new for Outlook" popup when I start Outlook.

    This popup slows down startup and any info here should be available in Help resources.

  14. Allow files on shared servers to be linked to in emails.

    In the earlier Outlook, you could click a file, press 'Command' + 'C' and then go into a new email, press 'Command' + 'V' and it would paste a link. Now you have to right click the file, select 'Get Info' and then highlight and copy the 'Server' text, then in the email you have to click 'Hyperlink' and create a link. It takes so much more time and effort!

  17. Speed of loading Emails in Online Archive

    Improve the speed of loading emails in Online Archive. It is extremely slow and takes minutes to load 300-500 emails. At the same time, the windows version has it loaded already when I select any email folder in the Online Archive

  18. Add option to remove Trash folder unread badge count

    The trash folder shows an unread count just like any other folder. I'd like the option to turn the unread count off for the Trash folder, because if I've sent it to the trash, I don't care whether it's unread!
