  1. Bring back sorting for All/Unread/Mentions and Arrange By quick sorting by Date, Size, etc.

    In the latest update the view change to consolidate to a singular "All" dropdown that allows you to choose between the former All, Unread, Mentions and then to easily Sort with Arrange By. For many users the expanded view is preferred and more easily accessible. If that could be made a view option, or a toggle feature I think that would be a functionality improvement

    Note from the Outlook Team: We have posted a Known Issue about this change with some explanation and possible solutions, https://support.office.com/en-us/article/All-Mail-and-Unread-Mail-tab-options-no-longer-show-in-Outlook-ecdfda13-bdc1-42e2-a77b-c18f6f291fe1?ui=en-US&rs=en-US&ad=US.

      • Disable/Remove "Outlook found new events" & "Outlook found a new event" features

        Remove "Outlook found new events" in Outlook 365 and "Outlook found a new event" in Outlook mail. It is a useless feature. It is forced into outlook Email and a waste of space. All events such as Amazon receipts/orders/shipping notices already indicate everything needed that is repeated again on the useless "Outlook found new events."

        • Email Signature Sync across devices

          It would be great if Outlook sync'd your email signature across multiple devices so that you only have to set or update it once.

            Recent people E-mails show in suggested contacts. Unfortunately, The Group Contacts stopped showing on last update. Please bring back the feature as we send lots of E-mails to a few group contacts time and again. Thanks!

              • Automatically replace recipient when replying to emails from Sent folder

                Scenario:

                I want to follow up on an email I already sent. I click the message in my SENT folder and then "Reply." I end up sending a message to myself.

                Some competitor products that shall not be named automatically replace the recipient in this scenario with the recipient of the original email, to avoid the awkward situation of replying to myself.

                    Provide an option to open links with right-click context menu to allow user to choose another browser in Microsoft Outlook 2016 rather than using the default browser.
                    In some cases users would like to open a link in alternate browsers because of special features needed.

                    • Provide a feature to 'Grey Out' Calendar events that have already occurred in Microsoft Outlook 2016

                      Provide a feature to 'Grey Out' Calendar events that have already occurred in Microsoft Outlook 2016. It would be more visually appealing and effective if the events that have already happened (i.e. if it is Wednesday, this would occur for all events on Monday and Tuesday) were faded as compared to the events that have still yet to occur.

                      • Allow IP addresses and domains to be blocked when creating a rule in Outlook 2016.

                        It's well known spammers spoof display names and email addresses and rarely send from the same address more than once. It would be nice to be able to create a rule to block email based on sending IP address or domain instead of specific email address.

                        It would be nice to be able to make a rule to block all email from that IP, or entire domain. I don't know anyone in Russia, I have no reason to receive email from Russia at all, so it would be nice to be able to block all emails from there.

                            Outlook client should display name of the profile name in the title bar like it shows If I have 5 profiles and I load one of them, I never know which profile I am currently using.

                            Believe this would be a really useful feature and hope to see it upcoming updates.

                                Working with the favorites list if you add a folder and then also a subfolder of that folder as a favorite, the subfolder is only indented 1 character. This should be increased for better visibility that it is actually a subfolder.

                                • Out Of Office in Outlook 2016

                                  If several accounts (e-mail) are in Outlook, it would be great if you could Install an Out of Office reply (different) for EACH of the accounts (e-mail addresses). It also refers to inclusion of POP, IMAP and Exchange based accounts.

                                    • Support editing of shared Outlook.com calander in Outlook 2016

                                      We use share calendar on Outlook.com that we often change via Outlook 2016.
                                      Before Outlook.com was switched to Exchange in the back end this worked perfectly.

                                      • Bayesian filters for junk/spam management in Outlook 2016

                                        When reporting junk/spam to Outlook, the only option is to block the sender, which is a poor option when dealing with spam. Spam will often impersonate real sender email address, sometimes, sender known to the recipient.
                                        Bayesian filters are a common way to detect spam in email software (both client and server). Is not perfect, but it’s better than filtering on the sender email address only.
                                        It would be great to have Bayesian filters implemented in Outlook and Exchange to detect and report spam.
