  2. Move to folder

    Moving an email from inbox to a folder is so hit and miss it's making me rethink my decision to move from Mac mail from apple to outlook. Sometimes dragging an email to a folder will work and other times, just drops a copy of the email in a folder and leaves the mail in the inbox. Add this to the fact that outlook does not integrate contact lists with apple just shows me Microsoft has not overcome it's it's issues with interworking to other platforms.

    Microsoft switched the Outlook composing editor to Microsoft Word to provide a much richer feature set, but with the switch the automatic language detection has been removed. This is an important feature for all users working in multiple languages and should be restored (or added back).

  9. Allow Reply without including full text of incoming message

    The default position in Outlook Mail is to include the text of the message when replying. Generally I prefer not to do that, not least because it makes conversation-based messages hyper-long. Can we have a button or check box or something that allows us to reply without including the message text, i.e. without having to select everything and then delete manually.

  13. Highlight date, time and select "Add to calendar" option in right click context menu

    When you receive an email with a date and time you often have to add this to your calendar e.g. "Hey, let's meet at 5pm on Wednesday 3rd at Alvinos".

    It would be great if you could highlight a date, time, and place and then right click and select a "add to calendar" option in the context menu.

  14. Automatically display photo for an email based on Gravatar / Facebook / LinkedIn / etc

    If there is no image associated with a contact/email address, Outlook should fetch a public image from Gravatar, Facebook, or LinkedIn.

    This should be configurable - users can specify which sources they would like to use and in what priority order.

  15. Make the status bar color respect the theme. That stupid blue color is still there even when the "classic" theme is selected

    I just provided the description in the box where it said: "I suggest you...", not realizing there would be a whole separate section later, making me repeat myself. So your feedback form is basically designed just as poorly as your terrible e-mail client.

  16. The 'Search' window which appears when you want to move a message, has lost the ability to be expanded in all directions.

    The window which appears when you choose: 'Message' - 'Move' - 'Choose Folder' - 'Search' can only be enlarged vertically. It needs to be enlarged horizontally, as some folders you're searching have a few subfolders, which results in a long name, which can't be seen in full if the window remains small. The previous version had the ability to enlarge the window in all directions. I think it is just a bug in the new version, which needs to be corrected.

  18. Ability to cc other attendees when declining a meeting

    Ability to CC other people when declining a meeting with comment. This can bring your absence to the attention of other key people, not just the organizer.

  19. Send and move/delete

    Send and move/delete
    Lotus notes has this nice feature which keeps your mails organized - one can send the e-mail and the sent message can be moved to propper folder or delete within the send procedure - user simply selects the folder on pressing the "send and move" button and that is it or can trash the mail right after sending.
