  1. Automatically replace recipient when replying to emails from Sent folder

    Scenario:

    I want to follow up on an email I already sent. I click the message in my SENT folder and then "Reply." I end up sending a message to myself.

    Some competitor products that shall not be named automatically replace the recipient in this scenario with the recipient of the original email, to avoid the awkward situation of replying to myself.

      • Group Contacts to show in recent people

        Recent people E-mails show in suggested contacts. Unfortunately, The Group Contacts stopped showing on last update. Please bring back the feature as we send lots of E-mails to a few group contacts time and again. Thanks!

        • Disable/Remove "Outlook found new events" & "Outlook found a new event" features

          Remove "Outlook found new events" in Outlook 365 and "Outlook found a new event" in Outlook mail. It is a useless feature. It is forced into outlook Email and a waste of space. All events such as Amazon receipts/orders/shipping notices already indicate everything needed that is repeated again on the useless "Outlook found new events."

          • Block Senders Domain in Junk

            When getting lots of junk email with same domain name(with different email accounts) it would be great if we get an option to block senders domain. We can edit the blocked senders , but its again a tedious process and we may end up doing this daily. Adding a button on Junk so we can block the senders domain right away would be an easier way to tackle this menace.

            • Allow IP addresses and domains to be blocked when creating a rule in Outlook 2016.

              It's well known spammers spoof display names and email addresses and rarely send from the same address more than once. It would be nice to be able to create a rule to block email based on sending IP address or domain instead of specific email address.

              It would be nice to be able to make a rule to block all email from that IP, or entire domain. I don't know anyone in Russia, I have no reason to receive email from Russia at all, so it would be nice to be able to block all emails from there.

              • Provide an option to open links with right-click context menu to allow user to choose another browser in Microsoft Outlook 2016

                Provide an option to open links with right-click context menu to allow user to choose another browser in Microsoft Outlook 2016 rather than using the default browser.
                In some cases users would like to open a link in alternate browsers because of special features needed.

                  • Include time zone in the sent line embedded in emails

                    Add time zone to the Sent line embedded in replied-to emails.
                    When I'm emailing back and forth with someone in a different time zone, it becomes difficult to track response times since the Sent line embedded in the email just says 4:40 PM, not 4:40 PM ET

                    Example - Since Casey is in ET and Cindy is in PT, the interchange below looks like Cindy took 3 and a half hours to respond when it was really just 35 minutes

                    From: Casey
                    Sent: Thursday, October 05, 2017 6:02 AM

                    • Go Back button

                      I'd like to have a button that will return me to an email I had open previously. Going to the most recent email I was viewing would be good. Being able to select from a history of previously viewed emails would be better.

                        • custom date format in column view

                          Allow creating personallized date formats for sent/received columns.
                          Or at least provide a few more options.
                          Examples:
                          sun 1 oct 17 16:05 (compact but complete)
                          2017-10-01 16:05
                          1 oct 16:05
                          sunday 16:05
                          today 16:05
                          5 minutes ago
                          yesterday 11.45

                          If possible there should also be a "smart" format that changes depending on column width and/or distance from current time (I care about hour and minute in case af a recent date not much about a date far in the past)

                          • Snooze E-mail

                            Dear,

                            It would be very interesting to have the option to snooze in a mail message. Like on the Google Inbox, where I can set an e-mail already read to pop up on my inbox again later scheduled.

                            Thank you.

                            • Bring back the horizontal split window bar

                              In previous versions of Outlook (I believe it was still there in 2010), when composing an email, there was a little line above the vertical scroll bar that you could drag down to activate the split window feature. This would divide your editing area into a top and bottom section and allow you to compose in the top half while you view further down the email in the bottom section. Incidentally, this feature is still available in Word, although it was removed from the top of the vertical scroll bar and relegated to a button on the View toolbar of…

                                • Make To, Subject etc. scalable with zoom

                                  When I can't read my e-mail because the text is too small, I can zoom in (e.g. with my mouse wheel) but this only works for the body of my e-mail, To, CC Subject etc. remain stubbornly too small. How is this helpful - please change.

                                    Allow searching from the "Recover Deleted Items" menu within Outlook 2016.
