    • Unified Inbox for Outlook 2016

      Outlook needs a unified Inbox similar to the Outlook for iOS app. For those of us with multiple email accounts it would be very convenient to have all emails arrive in one inbox; perhaps color-coded to show which account they were delivered to.

          • 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.

                • 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.

                  • 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…

                      • 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,…

                            • 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:
                              http://answers.microsoft.com/de-de/office/forum/office_2016-outlook/outlook-2016-synchronisiert-imap-ordner-fehlerhaft/91e9041b-00f0-4dae-9b92-c3cbf0655b02

                                    • Allow multiple months in to to-do bar like in outlook 2010

                                      Allow multiple months in the to-do bar like in Outlook 2010. Restricting it to a single month defeats the purpose of having it there.

                                      • Options to allow closely spaced folders in Folder Pane

                                        The Folder Pane has too much space between folders for a desktop user with a mouse, since Microsoft made the spacing wide to accommodate touch navigation. Provide an easy way to change spacing to a tight single spacing when in desktop mode, so more folders are visible without having to scroll.

                                        • 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.
