  1. Usability improvements

    -How about putting the headers on the email list so I can easily sort by them?
    -How about providing a better search mechanism instead of having just one search box that mixes search results? Search is also not very smart, in couldnt distinguish between search context.
    -Eliminate grouping by conversation or provide option to turn it off.. It just doesnt work!

    • Do Not Drop Connected Accounts!

      Called support due to slowness in downloading email from a connected account. We were told that Office 365 Business Accounts is removing this ability. I was totally blown out of the water that this functionality is being removed. We have fought hard as a K-12 to stick with MS O365 and Outlook over Google, but seeing that Google has this ability may sway our focus on using Outlook.

      Please reconsider not pulling this option as I know there is a large user base that relies on this ability.

      • Folder Icons / Color Coding

        In the far left navigational tree, where you find the inbox, drafts, created folders, etc., the folder name text, for each folder, could be more visually distinct for quicker visual navigation. Right now, the list of folder names is stacked vertically with double-spacing with only gray between. I think it would be better if the folder rows had alternate shading, or some sort of colored folder icon to make mousing to the correct folder more intuitive and visual, instead of just textual.

        - Thanks for your consideration!

        • Outlook Online Categories/Tags Views and Assignments

          ADD CATEGORY/TAGS TO ONLINE OUTLOOK
          I use category tags in the desktop version of outlook to sort, view, and find relevant messages. Unfortunately the online version of outlook does not use these for sorting, filtering, or in views. It would be a nice feature if you could add category/tags to the filter and searching functions in the online version of outlook.

            • Unread not bold enough in 365

              Outlook365 does not bold unread messages sufficiently, the inbuilt windows 10 mail app does this much, much better.

              Please can you look at making bold unread messages effectively.

              • Stop forwarding junk email

                I enabled email forwarding in my Outlook 365 account. However, it forwards ALL emails, even those that go directly to Junk Email folder. Outlook should allow an option to NOT forward emails identified as junk or spam.

                • Mail rules to sort focused or other inboxes

                  The "Always move" option is great for helping to sort mail into the "Other" inbox, or back into the "Focused" inbox, but it'd be useful to extend this customisation via Rules.

                  For example, I'm a member of a mailing list that gets a large amount of mail daily. The senders vary, and they often send me important mail too, to the "always move" option is too much. I'd like to setup a Rule, if sent to mailing list, move to "Other Inbox".

                  • WebEx and Office 365

                    On the Desktop version of Outlook, I had the Cisco WebEx Productivity Toolkit that made it easy to create an Outlook Calendar meeting/invite and then add my WebEx meeting to the invite. This created the meeting in WebEx for me and added all the WebEx info to the meeting invite. Is there way to have that in the Office 365?

                          PLEASE!!!
                          Make a feature to schedule e-mails to be sent using the OUTLOOK WEB VERSION. I already know this is available for the installed application on a windows 10 computer but I want to be able to do this via the web version of outlook.

                          • Email notification

                            A small popup for new email notification (calendar too) that lasts a few seconds would be nice. Our previous email system had this (when your browser was the active app). Also on the outlook tab at the top of the browser a number in parentheses indicating the number of new emails would be nice to have.

                            • Let us customize fields to show in card view.

                              I've used Outlook for a real estate client database for 15 years. 365 broke it. I don't need to track appointments, my boss does that. I DO need to display and PRINT the card view showing clients records: Name, spouse/partner, property address and mailing address, his and her cell phones, work phones, and birthdays; children names and birthdates; wedding date, date home purchase closed, referred by and referred to. I need to be able to change the date format to text so it doesn't add "this year" to every birthday or anniversary where we don't know the year. New fields…

                                • Reuse generic message

                                  It would be nice to be able to re-use a generic message that needs to be sent to different users on different occasions. Thus, a master generic message can be saved and modified for a specific user. This saves the need to recreate the entire message when the need arises. I believe Yahoo Mail has this option. Thanks.

                                  • calendar pop up reminders

                                    Can we get a pop up reminder for calendar events that shows up on desktop even when the browser is minimized? I use OL in my browser and I miss meetings because I'm never getting notifications.

                                      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

                                        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
