  1. Search Folders limitation

    "Search folder" limits to searching emails stored in the local cache (OST). Wish the mails search can apply to all emails inside the mailbox (both online and offline), including the online archive mailbox as well.

  5. Provide a filter emails by searching unreplied messages

    Implement a search filter that allows you to search for messages that have not been replied to yet. This will allow Outlook Users to identify messages that have been received, but not responded to yet. Thus, minimizing the occurrence of missed emails.

  6. Provide a feature to create SEARCH FOLDER based on Regular Expressions in Microsoft Outlook 2016

    When we use SEARCH in Microsoft Outlook 2016 using regular expressions, a provision of a SEARCH FOLDER to be created based on regular expression like: (((((to:(First Name; Last Name) OR cc:(First Name; Last Name)) AND ((isread:no) OR ((isread:yes) AND followupflag:followup flag)))) AND folderpath:Inbox)) would make the application more productive.

    Provide a feature in Search in Outlook Client app to display words using prefix as well as suffix in Microsoft Outlook 2016 as of now it only displays search results using prefix.

    Searching for part of words in mail outlook 365

    The most basic way to search is by simply typing a word or phrase. Outlook uses what's called prefix matching when you search. So if you type "ray" in the search box,…

  10. Provide an ability to navigate recent searches easily

    A small arrow icon which will display my recent 10 searches will be of great help. A lot of times we search inbox with few keywords and mostly with numbers which are lengthy. Navigating through recent searches should make it easier to research and can save a lot of time.

    Adding a small arrow or a Recent Searches icon just next to Search field can be easy to spot and immediate use.

  13. Recherche d'un courriel dans une Cie et ajouter un filtre pour un item spécifique

    Lorsque je cherche quelque chose dans une banque par exemple, et que je veux trouver un item de cette banque comme le nom d'une Cie ou un certain formulaire rempli plusieurs années avant.
    Il serait bien de pouvoir faire une recherche dans "Banque ABC" et une deuxième comme "Déclaration". Il en ressortirait tous les déclarations de cette Banque ABC. J'aurais pu faire trier par À mais s'il y a eu plusieurs personnes dans cette même Banque, ça devient impossible.
    DONC plusieurs filtre pour les recherches serait bien.

  14. mail group search include @

    I have got more than 2000 person on contact list. So when I want to create an e-mail group, I can seacrh name. But the Outlook show the person e-mail and fax number. Example: An user had got e-mail and fax number. So Outlook show 2 record in person list for ad to group. So when i look at the list I can see 4000 more person. I think that I must be able to filter just e-mail adress

  15. Fix bug that has blown out the search function in Outlook

    After a recent update, I can no longer do a search in Outlook for recent emails. Microsoft support tried fixing but they are unable to fix this. Please fix this error as without being able to do a search, I am not able to handle my business emails. Extremely frustrating and apparently I am not the only one having this problem. first time in my computer history that I am considering moving to a MAC. This is really unacceptable.

  18. 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

  20. Search Multiple Random Words

    It would be more efficient if we could search multiple random words to narrow down the search. I would LOVE to see this feature added!

    Side note: I apologize if this suggestion is already out there. I searched this page multiple ways, but I did not find it. (The search feature on "this page" isn't very efficient either.) ;)
