  1. Collapse pinned section

    Collapse pinned conversations, like Google but better. They take up too much space.

  2. Email draft editing

    When opening a draft email, allow us to go right into editing without the need to click the little box that asks if we want to continue editing or delete. Intuitively we would want to edit the draft, otherwise if we want to delete that is easy enough to do.
    Thank you for listening.

  3. Message Pane Display

    Please make it so I can change how the the list of emails in my inbox is displayed. I can only see about 4 in the message pane and they each take up about 3 lines or so. I'd prefer being able to see 15 messages each taking up only one line. It is very cumbersome to search and I dislike it immensely. I looked through options and couldn't find a way to change this if it already exists (in which case, please make it more obvious by putting it under display options).

  5. manually split or combine specific conversations

    I'd like the ability to split an email conversation into multiple threads, and also combine two separate messages into one conversation.

  6. Add a "Filter By Example" on mail lists

    I need many times to be able to "Filter By Example". I mean: I select one or more mails then I would be able from that choice to filter all messages coming from the same sender/senders.
    Many web mail providers have it!

    Thank you

  7. Keyboard shortcuts

    I definitely miss the keyboard shortcuts from regular outlook. Is there a way you could incorporate them into the online version?

  8. Appearance improvement

    There is not enough contrast available in your display choices. There are older people like me (and even older!) that have a harder time seeing than most of the people in their 20's that make these choices.

  9. Keep Current Location When Returning Additional Search Results

    Please fix it so when searching, and you click "more results" (or whatever it says at the bottom of the message list), the results show up immediately there where you are instead of taking you back to the top of the message list requiring you to scroll back down to there you were. It's very hard to find the spot where you were in the message list.

  10. Add an Alias field to contacts

    Request for an "alias" field on the contact.
    Could you please add an "alias" or "nickname" filed to the name fields on contacts. I would use this as a shortcut for the long unpronounceable names of some of my colleagues.

  11. How-to guide forOutlook users

    Ever since this new migration occurred, I've been looking for my contact listened just now found it! There are many other "how-to" questions I have and I think it would be nice if there was a guide book to explain all the features and how to use them. Do you already have one?

  12. Change password

    Here's an idea when you want someone to change their password send them a link to do it. When I right click on my profile picture it does not give me an option for account settings.

  13. Faster Purge / Restore suggestions

    In the Purge/Restore function (Deleted Items / Retrieve messages...):

    1. Have a select-all / clear-all. This would save time versus clicking each one
    2. Clicking a box to select it is fine, but if you want to select multiple items, and accidentally click somewhere outside of the box, it deselects the other mail items. Aggravating!

    That is all. Thanks!

  15. Options to be added

    Dear Office 365 team,

    It would be great if you can show the email size (kb or mb) in the preview panel same as Outlook before.

    Also if you create a rule for the trash same as Microsoft Outlook which can empty the old items automatically (for example: I want to remove emails dated more than two weeks) so trash will be less in size and more easy to search for deleted emails incase need to recover.

    Best Regards,
    Wissam Marrash

  16. Forward email with Contact from within Contact

    iPhone Outlook App - Allow user to email a Contact out from within the Contact. The native iPhone - Phone App allows this.

  17. easy access of inbox, trash, and sent folders

    Being able to locate the general inbox, trash and sent functions. I have spent considerable amount of time searching for these things and I either have to exit out of the site and log back in or give up entirely.

  19. iCal support

    um. how about being able see my personal calendar (google, or any iCAL feed for example) on top of my work calendar? or would that just make the user experience too convenient? oh, wait, i forgot we all go to work at 9am and return to personal life at 5pm. for a second there i thought our personal and work lives integrated around the clock. please add support for ical. because apple's calendar software sucks - but at least i can see my life in one picture... so they're still beating outlook.

  20. Provide users a link to their quarantined messages.

    Have a link in that will take users to their Exchange Quarantine. If they suspect a message is spam and their daily alert has not been sent, then they have to contact me to login to the Exchange Admin to view the message quarantine. It would be so much better if users had direct access to their quarantined messages, so this would become a service-service task.
