    • List of attachements in Mailheader

      Hello, how in some versions on outlook before 2016 presented, I need the possibility to show many attachements in form of list in the mail (with whole filename and maybe with size of file in one line). In version 2016 I have only the view of many attachements with huge symbols beside filename. In case of long filenames they are cutted and it's not possible to see them all in one view.
      I only need the view of them like presented in older outlook versions.
      So I mean under the header of the mail. The place is the same, only…

      • Ribbon should not switch over to the Attachment Tab unless we need to perform any action related to attachments in Email

        The Ribbon switches automatically to the Attachment Tab and stays there whenever an attachment is clicked on in an email message. It is required to switch back to the Message or any other tab manually by the user in order to reply to a message or perform another function not related to an attachment. The ribbon shall not move to the attachment tab and stay where it is unless the user switches the tab himself to perform any action related to the attachment.

          • Provide ability to change the name of a file within the email.

            I'd like to be able to change the name of a file within the email. For example, I often forward invoices straight to my cloud accounting package.

            • Display full attachment names at the top of the preview pane in Microsoft Outlook 2016.

              In Outlook 2013, this was relatively easy to copy the file name of an attachment. When we clicked on the attachment in the preview pane and the attachment name appeared at the top of the pane.
              This made copy-pasting really easy and convenient and saves us a lot of clicks and time each day. In Outlook 2016 however, this feature seems to have disappeared.
              Please bring this feature back.

                  Please add the option to save an attachment from outlook to onedrive. This should be similar to the option in Word 2016, where you can save to weblocations / onedrive.

                  • Could photos attached to an email appear as thumbnail versions of themselves?

                    I cannot easily identify any particular photo when each appears on the email as a 'cloud' icon along with its ident no. Would it not be easier to see each as a thumbnail of itself?

                    • Option to Navigate to Downloaded Attachment in Microsoft Outlook 2016.

                      After downloading and saving a file that was attached to a received email, show a button or link to open the file and/or the folder location where the file is saved. That way, after 'Save As' the file, with one more click I can open that file. [similar to the way that downloaded/saved files show up at the bottom of the screen in Chrome or other internet browsers]

                      • SharePoint Document Library Handling - Outlook 2016

                        The other Office applications allow for the navigation of SharePoint sites, including opening files in and saving files to document libraries without having to sync those libraries using the OneDrive for Business sync client. Please implement the same mechanism for Outlook 2016. We have a bunch of frustrated clients for whom we can't install the sync client because of the file count limitation and who need to be able to attached documents from their SharePoint document libraries as part of their workflow.

                        In addition, we need to be able to set a default in which the documents are attached, not…

                          Permissions for cloud attachments should start at lowest and then go up (i.e. start at recipients can view not organization can edit)

                            The new attachments menu in Outlook 2016 is one of the best bits of the product, not only saving me loads of time by adding files I was last working on, but also making it easy to send links instead of files.

                            For me the only thing it's lacking is some pins so that I can go and grab attachments from pinned locations (Just like the say the Open Document pane works on Word/Excel/PowerPoint

                            • Disable image attachment thumbnail previews.

                              Please disable image attachment thumbnail previews, or allow an option to disable it. Outlook takes significant time generating the tumbnails and does so each time the email is opened, or even just highlight with the reading pane open. while it is generating the tumbnail outlook freezes and becomes unresponsive.

                              • Save all attachments to SharePoint Document Library

                                Allow an option to save all attachments to a specific Document Library in SharePoint On Premise and SharePoint Online. Currently, I can save an attachment one by one, by entering the URL to the SharePoint site in the Save As dialog. But using the option "Save All Attachments As" always throw an error.

                                Also, allow us to pin our favourite document libraries so we can simply select them (instead of having to write the entire URL time and time again).

                                Do not confuse this request with OneDrive or My Site documents.

                                  Working with the keyboard and attachments is not up to the mark in Microsoft Outlook 2016. For heavy email users this requires extra efforts and need to be simplified. Provide an option to handle attachments with Keyboard.

                                      • Ability to view attachments in the preview pane via windows explorer.

                                        When viewing saved emails from Outlook 2016 in windows explorer using the preview pane, the feature to see whether an email contains an attachment has been removed for Outlook 2013.

                                        I'd like to see this option added back.

                                          "You are saving this file as part of a draft email. Any changes to this file may be lost if you don't save a copy to your computer. Would you like to save a copy to your computer?"
                                          Currently, if I open a draft that has an attachment, edit the attachment, then click save, the file saves as part of the draft, but does not save to the original location on my computer. I am not prompted that the file location is not on my computer. So, if I delete the email, or if…
