  4. the search results may be reported latest to oldest instead oldest to latest searches

    when the number of messages are huge, it is taking too much time to search the old conversations. it is because the search in indexed items are taking place from older to newer messages. it would be ideal to provide newer messages appaear first in the search results

    In microsoft outlook while using Ctrl + Shift + F for finding e-mails, the columns that we require the previous column does not remain fixed.
    As a result, repeatedly we need to add columns which we prefer / require.

  6. Smarter Outlook 2016

    - Would like to easily follow up on emails. I imagine my ability to set a reminder on an email I send - a reminder only I see - that keeps me informed and warns me after X days of my choice, whether I received a reply or not. This is some next-step ML similar to checking if the body of an email contained the keyword "attach" and then remind me I've forgotten to add one. I could say "please do this by Friday", and Outlook will remind me on Friday that "this activity should be done by Friday by…

    Bring back the ability to search in all mail boxes without having to show as conversations! This is very inconvenient for business owners!

  8. Full indexing and apostrophe or quote search

    Full indexing search on outlook commands and outlook data in single search window
    Should have shortcut

    Also, when searching for a string containing either a smart or straight apostrophe or quote, return matches for both types.

    In Outlook for Windows build 8625.2127, the search results view is missing the sender. Instead of showing the sender, the results list shows nothing.

  10. Provide a feature to add an internal subject matter to track emails with relevance not stated in subject line in Microsoft Outlook 2016

    For example, I am an accountant. Many of our clients are large families and we communicate with their financial advisor only. We receive email updates throughout the year related to multiple family members. The subject line the advisor chooses may be the family's last name but the subject matter within the email may be multiple things such as estimated taxes and changes to payments, letters from governmental agencies, new addresses, purchases and sales, etc. The problem I have is by the time we are ready to prepare a tax return in October we may have 15 emails out of 150…

  11. Add the ability to filter out Drafts in Emails that was sent if they were combined in a single folder.

    a PSTfile can contain thousands of drafts and sent Email, especially in the purges, filtering them out manually can prove to be a tedious tas, so far I couldn't find a filter or a query that can filter out drafts or Emails that has not been actually sent apart from the actual search items.

  12. Button for Search Refresh

    After I define a search for my Inbox (which includes only unread items and returns over 200 emails) I begin handling those emails. As I complete each email, the email message is now "read". However, it stays in the search results. From time to time, I would like to be able to hit a Search Reload/Refresh button to eliminate the now read emails from the results window. The only time that an email message seems to auto-eliminate itself from the results list is when I right-click and select Mark as Read. However, the emails that I am searching for contain…

  14. Instant Search popup should contain a link to where to find more information

    I click the button for Instant Search. A popup shows up telling me that Windows Search service is not installed. It is not clear what it means to "see the Help included with your version of Microsoft Windows". The popup should be clearer, and/or a link should be in the popup for more information of how to set it up.

  15. People search issue with Turkish characters in Outlook 2016

    In Turkish, instead of I-i character in English we have two different letters, İ-i, I-ı. And not like in English lowercase i does not correspond to uppercase I, both have their own uppercase and lowercase versions as you can see above.

    So lets say i have a name ismail, when i write it in uppercase its written as İsmail.

    During searching for people (or email etc) lets say there is a person called İsmail, of course his name is recorded into database as Ismail since we are in a international company. In a computer reigon is set as Turkey, When…
