  1. Please get rid of automatically marking emails read even if I don't click on them

    Messages in the inbox are marked "read" even if I don't click on them which can be incredibly frustrating.

    For example, if I click on the first email in my inbox, read it, and click the delete button, the second email moves up and is highlighted by default. Then, if I click away to something else (another message or another window), that second email is now marked as "read," even though I may not have manually selected the email.

    This makes it difficult to strategize email reading. I need messages I haven't actively selected to remain "unread" until I actively…

  2. Make email pop-out not to tab but to new reasonable sized window

    Make pop-out emails not go full screen in another tab, but rather make them a reasonable sized new window. Alternately allow the user to set the behavior in settings, i.e., new window, new tab, etc.

  3. BETTER CUSTOMER SERVICE AND CONTACT DETAILS

    Maybe have contact numbers customers and retail outlets can call to actually speak with someone who works directly for Microsoft not people who work for 3rd party companies who give no help and hang up on people and tell them they can't help at all

  5. Visually differentiate between external and internal email addresses

    Clearly indicate or differentiate between contacts, e.g., email addresses, are internal or external in order to avoid or mitigate sending internal documents or messages outside of the organization.

    It is something that happens all the time that people send internal communications to external parties because of auto complete or simply because the name looks similar or maybe even is the same. It is extremely high risk that an unintended person is added to a message and the damage has potential of being significant. It would be prudent to clearly indicate when emails are sent to external or internal parties. Maybe…

  7. Color a day on a calendar

    It would be great to change background color for a given day on the calendar without marking the day/time as an appointment. I work out of multiple offices and share my calendar with other staff so they can book appointments for me. It is important that they be able to know which office I will be in on a given day. If we could change the background color for a given day on my calendar, we could use this system to make sure we are all on the same page.

  9. Collapsing message view

    I think it would be better to have the ability to collapse the inbox view into last week, two weeks ago etc. Like the way it was in the old Outlook. It makes the inbox neater.

  13. Forward a contact to other people in the Outlook Web App.

    Staff should be able to add a contact in OWA and forward it to me. Can be done on desktop, but not OWA. Very disappointing! If it is possible and I'm just missing it, I apologize and please provide guidance.

  14. Office 365 - Outlook - Reminders List

    Office 365 - Reminders List:
    Under Reminders you have the option to "Dismiss All' - this selection is located at the beginning of Reminders which means you would delete old, current and future reminders. I would like an option placed above "Old Reminders" so you can delete the past reminders without having to select and delete them individually, or do a manual highlighted selection then a right click to "Delete" feature.

  16. Combining emails with same subject, but sent by different people

    I often receive emails with the same subject line. Outlook automatically collects those emails into one conversation, which means I can easily overlook emails that get lost in conversations. Is it possible make emails with the same subject title, but sent by different people, separate?
