  1. Encoding block list support for Junk Mail Filtering

    enable the use of the Blocked Encoding List for Junk Mail same as in Windows Outlook. This will make it much easier to stop the spam received using a foreign language like Chinese.

  2. Repeating calendar events and work days.

    Repeating calendar events and work days. With the online version (possibly the desktop as well), when specifying a repeating event for "every workday" it repeats an event across the same workdays listed under the personalization settings.

    However, it adds a little extra bit of "Microsoft Magic" too. If your workdays are Monday through Friday and you adopt this under personalization settings to support only seeing your repeating workday events M-F and NOT Sat/Sun, after you save, it (go figure?) only shows you M-F, which kind of blows if you're in an industry where weekend work pops up all the time.

  4. Quick access to Inboxes

    With this latest version of Outlook (fast insider), you took away the easy access to all Inboxes. I now have to scroll down to get to my IMAP account inbox. And, no, All Accounts is not the same, as I don't want to look at my accounts mixed up.

  5. Add the option of displaying "To" and "CC" labels

    With lots of email lists/subscriptions, it's helpful to easily identify mail that is sent directly To or where the receiver is CC'd -- so adding a label in the list view would help with quickly scanning the inbox for the most relevant email.

  6. Yellow highlights back in and notification for flagged emails

    Would you please add the yellow highlights on messages for flagged emails back in? It's really hard to distinguish with only the red flags. Also, when will the notification feature for flagged messages be supported for Macs?

  7. conversartion

    Add "show emails from all folders" in Conversations view. This will allow to quickly view all emails related to a conversation even if they are not located in the current folder. This will align the view to Windows Outlook, and particularly will eliminate the need to click multiple times in reading pane to find the related conversation's emails that are not located in the current folder.

  12. Add MacOs Dictionary / Lexicon Support

    Please add the MacOs Dictionary / Lexicon support for editing eMails.

    It can be used with CRTL-CMD-D, but would be great to have it implemented as it is for reading an eMail.

  13. Annoying popups

    Eliminate the url popup that occurs when mouse hovers over a link in email. The url should go at the bottom of the window in the grey area.

  16. Option to show week view start on the current day instead of Sunday/Monday

    Option to show calendar week view start on the current day instead of Sunday/Monday--useless for scheduling purposes to have most of the screen taken up my days that have already happened.

  17. Personal email Helper

    After a day or more out of office, emails pile up to the extent that it may take days to recover. Some of the emails can become obsolete, other are for information only.The idea is to have a summary of all emails from a person in a box showing the actual email summary which you may ask the person to provide update if anything you need to act on or you need to know about (now). Also it would be helpful if you add something called an action email (like a task) which can be marked as completed or no…

  20. .

    Please add the ability to send email to a mailing list with the option to exclude some addresses in the mailing list. For example, I want to send a message to all staff but exclude 1 or 2 staff from receiving the message.
