  5. create new folder

    When creating a new folder please do not go to that folder after it is created - it's empty of course! Typically you are in Inbox when creating a folder. After the new folder is created, just stay in Inbox (or which ever folder you were in before creating the folder).

  7. View / Select from list of recently opened / closed messages

    On many occasions I've had emails open but behind other windows on my desktop. Every now and then, Mac OS will act up and even though I'm focused on another application, the close window keyboard shortcut appears to act on Outlook instead of the recently tabbed-to application and I lose an email that might have been from days or weeks ago. It's a pain to have to sometimes go and find the emails that I accidentally close, especially if I closed it so quickly I'm not even aware of what email it was.

    Being able to view a list of…

  8. location

    Search for Room or Resource by Location

    Our company has Multiple Buildings spread across multiple geographic locations. Our previous calendaring system allowed for us to search for available Rooms and/or Resources based on building or location. Would be an awesome add for Outlook to support the same since all the framework already exists our AD.

  10. Stop auto-save from kicking me out of the window.

    I use Outlook at work, and every couple of sentences when outlook auto-saves, it kicks me out of my email window. There are no options to disable it, and it takes time to re-click back in the window where I was typing.

    First world problem I know, but it drives me up the wall.

  14. Correct 'edit message' feature

    This is an excellent and important feature. However in the latest version when you edit and convert HTML to plain it leaves an empty line at thew top - can this be corrected? Thanks!

  18. Create a "vacation notice" event.

    When I go on vacation, I have to send one appointment to co-workers to let them know I'll be gone, which shows as "available" (so that it doesn't block out their whole schedule). Then I have to create ANOTHER appointment that shows as "out of the office" that is just for me. That's annoying to have to do when I'm out of the office. Every. Time.

    SO, perhaps "Out of the office" should show as blocked for the sender, but not for any of the recipients. OR, we could have a new status that means "I'm out of the office"…
