  1. 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.

  2. 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

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. 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?

  6. 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!

  8. 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

  10. 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.

  12. 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.

  13. Calendar sharing invite message

    It would be nice to have a place to write a note when sharing a calendar just like sharing within OneDrive. Currently there is only a subject line field. Sometime people want me (as the admin) to share a calendar with someone but they may not know about it. I would like to place some explanation with the invite.

    Thanks!

  14. User adjustable controls of the inbox layout for sender, subject and time - date boxes

    How about giving the ability to control the layout size of the email inbox sender , subject and time date boxes. I liked the older layout better. It was much easier to scan quickly and recognize email that was previously opened.

  15. Increase Connected Account Pull Frequencey

    Give me the ability to increase the frequency of pulling emails from "some" connected accounts. I understand the potential load on the servers of millions of emails being requested every minute. I don't need all of then in less time, just a few of them. And I don't need them every minute, how about 10-15 minutes. Who waits an hour for anything these days, let alone an email response.

  16. Manage e-mail signatures for the whole company in Office 365

    Hello.

    It would be great if you could manage e-mail signatures for the whole company inside Office 365, instead of buying this service from other companies.

  17. bring back the auto remember field for the to box of an email in owa

    bring back the autoremember of contacts in the to field of email.
    Before, it would remember previous people I sent to.
    Now I have to choose "search directory" for EVERY person I wish to send to -even if I've previously sent email to them.

  18. move and drop attachement

    Dear Office365 RnD,

    I really want to see 'move and drop' feature for enclosing an Email to a new Email attachment. It's more like we did in previous outlook app.

    Thanks
    Dave

  19. list of active sessions

    close open session when password is changed or when trusted device is deleted.

    outlook.com keeps the active session open after password change, and even if the function "Fjern alle de enheder, jeg har tillid til, og som er tilknyttet min konto" is activated a chrome browser on macbook is still able to both send and receive emails. It is now 8 hours sinse the password was changed and the trusted-device-list was deleted, but outlook.com has not prompted for new password yet..

  20. Inbox Rules - User Interface - Increase Height

    The field displaying the list of rules, and the adjacent field with a preview of the selected rule have uncomfortably small height. Hard to scroll through many long-named rules. Please increase height of these windows/fields.
