    I think there should be a window that pops up at the bottom of the screen when there is a new email to alert us

    • Make [Apply to all messages] apply to all messages

      My school gave me an Outlook account when I first began attending, and sends all its correspondence to me through it. I use a different service for my personal email, and I don't like having to login to several different services, so I set up an inbox rule that applies to all incoming messages, and simply forwards them to my personal email client. This worked for two and a half years. However, I found out today that, about half a year ago, my outlook account was added to two school-related "groups" without my knowledge, and I was contacted via those…

      • send and file

        When sending an email, it would be great to be able to file it at the same time, rather than it going to sent items every time and then having to separately file it

            I would like to be able to sort my folders alphabetically without needing to add those folders as "favorites".

            • Request to control expansion of group members in Distribution Group when we specify the DL group into To line.

              Exchange Online function allows users to expand group members when they specify a Distribution Group address into To line. Besides, I would request you to implement a control function that users would be able to expand an only specific distribution group.

              1. We would prevent group members from seeing members listed in Distribution Group. We understand that we could hide registered DL group members in the Address Book; however, this would give an impact on standard mail usage. So, the way would not be appropriate step for us.

              2. In the Outlook client, this function is available for all groups…

                  Please add any feature so that the unread mails can be more visible (increase font size or anything else) . Also, is there any option to see the unread mail first?

                  • Tray notifications for Office365 events

                    The only thing preventing me from moving away from the desktop app (Outlook) is the web version's inability to reliably notify about events such as new e-mail and a meeting starting. A browser app just can't do that.

                    If there was a lightweight desktop application sitting in the tray and popping up notifications I'd move immediately. Until then there is not much use in Office365 for me.

                      • Add custom category colors

                        Ability to add custom colors (via hex#, RGB, CMYK, etc.) for categories.

                        It would be very beneficial for me when planning out my week using the calendar. There are 10 colors of various pastels (top two rows), a row of 5 greys, and 10 colors of various jewel-tones (bottom two rows) to choose from. I've got 20+ different projects I'd like to be able to plan ahead for and also be able to see clearly when glancing at my calendar. Would be tremendous help with planning and project management, as well as being able to quickly re-prioritize.

                          • Adjust font weight of new and unread messages

                            We (The university community) find that the web version and desktop version of Outlook 365 would greatly benefit from have ability to adjust the unread/incoming messages to bolded. Right now there is no why to adjust this in the setting. Although it a small feature we feel it greatly improves the usability and accessibility of your application.

                              It would be great that I can add the sender’s address to the contact of shared mailbox by using Add to contacts button so that I don’t have to add each address from the shared mailbox’s contacts page individually.
                              Also, please have the Edit contacts menu working correctly by clicking it.

                              When a user who has full access to shared mailbox tries to open the shared mailbox from Outlook on the web and add a sender’s address from a message received in the shared mailbox, you experience the behavior like below:

                              • Reply instead of Reply All

                                Can you please make "Reply" the default option for group emails instead of "Reply All?"

                                Many of our co-workers aren't very tech savvy. We end up getting 5-10 emails that just say "Thanks" and often will lose the original email trying to delete all the replies. Have also seen several reply alls that should not have gone to everyone since it contained personal information.

                                      • Outlook rules for Focused / Other email

                                        I like the Focused in-box. But I'd like to be able to set a rule for "Other" email. For example, I'd like to apply a retention policy to the "Other" email of 30 days. I cannot find an email property that show's what in Focused and what's in Other. If that property was exposed, I could set the rule.

                                        • Export E-mails to pdf.

                                          Please, dear Lord, let us export e-mails to pdf. I can do this in outlook, but for some reason the functionality does not exist in Office 365. It is a critical tool for businesses to keep track of correspondence.

                                          Thanks!
