  1. rename

    When a mail msg is used to generate a task (to be completed ...) it's not possible to rename the task, so in the task list there is only mail subject.
    In Windows outlook this is possible.

    Thanks.

  3. page so that I don't confuse incoming from sent

    Provide a feature to allow color coding email folder names that appear on left side of the main page so that when I move emails to a folder I don't confuse the incoming folders from the sent folders. I can also use the color coding to highlight specific email folders for easier access.

  8. Create a virtual Desktop

    Mail is too often lost in clutter. Beyond flagging, I would love to create a virtual desktop that I can drag emails that I don't want to lose track of, are linked to a specific project, etc.

  9. Better integration of microsoft excel and word in the body of emails

    It would be good if MS can work on integrating word and excel with outlook. Copy paste of table from excel and word is a difficult task to do right now.

  11. Add a vacation appointment that allows you to invite people as informational so that your boss can get your

    Add a vacation meeting type where you can have informational attendees who get the meeting as an all-day event showing free on their calendar while it shows out of office on yours. This would be very handy in informing people of your outages.

    There might be other use cases for the informational meeting type to inform that a meeting is occurring, but not remind or expect attendance.

  12. Automatic Reminders to buy Birthday or Anniversary Presents

    Outlook should allow for automatic reminders to buy birthday or anniversary presents based on the personal information entered in someone's contact. Currently you get a reminder the same day as the event which is not very helpful when you have to purchase a present for someone.

    Add groups for email accounts. For example Client, Personal, Social and Business, I have seven accounts in outlook 4 are personal, 1 is a client and 2 are business, yet my inbox view shows all email from all accounts and I often delete emails as I am doing the normal morning spam delete. Also it would make finding and saving emails more efficient.

  17. Quit telling me I have to open/read the first unopened email on the list.

    If I leave an unopened email on the top of the list, whenever I try to open one further down it doesn't open and instead of seeing the email I get a message box that states I need to go to the first new email. QUIT IT I DON'T ALWAYS WANT TO READ THAT ONE FIRST! (yes caps was intentional!) This hinders me from opening and reading emails that I deem are more important, and what email to read first is MY decision NOT yours!

  19. Allow updates to be sent to emails in the same way as can be done for meetings

    Allow updates to be sent to emails in the same way as can be done for meetings. As an alternative to creating unnecessarily long email chains – introduce a feature where extra content can be added to mails previously sent and shown as such in the original mail along with it being remarked as unread.

  20. Re-add scripting functionality to set font type and size

    Since the new formatting changes in 15.22 there is no longer an ability to script the font type and/or size in Outlook. It was previously possible via Applescript. Can some similar functionality be added again? It would be helpful for those of us that need to conform to Style Guides
