          • Bring back the "Show AutoPreview only for unread messages" feature

            Outlook 2010 had the ability to show AutoPreview only for read messages. Lack of this feature in Outlook 2016 dramatically reduces the number of mails that I can view without scrolling. For example, my Inbox today in Outlook 2016 shows less than half as many messages as the same Inbox in Outlook 2010.

            My work day usually involves 10-20 email conversations. Being able to see them all on the same page without scrolling is important to my efficiency at work. Please bring this feature back!

            The "Unread Mail" link above the messages list is not an acceptable substitute (and honestly…

            • When an item is deleted, mark it as read

              I often click the X to delete an email from the list without reading it (I know it is junk). It then goes to the Deleted folder but stays unread. This messes with my search folders that look for unread emails.

                • Option to make Microsoft Outlook 2016 work with Outlook.com connected accounts

                  Enable Outlook 2016 (when using an outlook.com account) to:
                  i) send from a 'Connected Account' set up via outlook.com
                  ii) reflect the default 'From' address of an outlook.com account

                  Currently in Outlook 2016, we can set up Outlook.com Accounts as Microsoft Exchange accounts however we cannot use connected account to reply or use as 'From' address. We can manually enter it, but the message appears as from "[xxxxxx]@outlook.com on behalf of ]xxxxx]@[mydomain].com"

                  Enable Outlook 2016 with an Outlook.com account to support connecting with Aliases that are not Microsoft domain accounts.

                  • Solution for Synchronization Problem - Possibility for manual matching of IMAP folders

                    The possibility to correct the matching of IMAP folders, like in Outlook 2007 should be added.

                    That means it should be possible to change the settings for the folders were the Sent and Deleted items should be stored.

                    This is a serious problem in the German Outlook version (17 votes in microsoft comunnity): Due to wrong matching the Synchronization does not work correct. E.g. Outlook stores the sent email in a folder named "Gesendete Elemente" (sent items) and the email provider expects "sent".

                    See discussion:

                          • Enable colored mailbox folders

                            MS Outlook 2013: I have many (sub-)folders in my mailbox and I already use the function "Show in favorites". But there are too many favorites and i scroll all the time in my POB to find the folder with mails that I need actually.

                            My idea of improvement:

                            Enable to set colors for the (sub-)folders in the mailbox, because the human brain links words with colors easier. So when I search e.g. the folder "Verbesserungsvorschläge", I don't need to search the written folder by eye. No, I can search by the color, that I defined for this folder. I mean,…

                            • Import contacts from iCloud

                              Allow outlook to import contacts directly from iCloud. It looks like it should work as there is the option that come up, Import to outlook but then you only get the first contact. I opened up the file with excel and can see the other contacts. with 1400 contacts doing them one at a time is a non starter.

                              If you are not going to get this working then icloud exports contacts don't make import to Outlook an option.

                                        • Allow deletion from new email notification pop up

                                          Allow users to delete an email via the new email notification that pops up like in older Windows versions. This feature changed in Windows 10 and the delete function is no longer available.
