  1. 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.

    • 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!

      • 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.

          • 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.

            • 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."

                • 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.

                    • Quick steps use fonts, colors and hyperlinks

                      It would be great if we can use fonts, colors and hyperlinks in Quick Steps. It's the best feature, but it has to be developed further. Attaching a file would be fantastic.

                      • 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.

                            Have an option in the outlook calendar to reforward the invitation to ONLY those who have not responded, so that those who have responded are not receiving a repetitive invitation.

                              Currently popping out an email to a new window from the preview pane seems to be possible only after you start reply or forward it when the "Pop Out" icon appears. I often encounter a scenario that when I scroll the email title list and see a title of interest (say email # 2), I also want to keep the email (say email # 1) currently in the preview pane to be opened in a window. I have to scroll back to the email title of email #1 and double click its title to open it in a new window.…

                                • Turn off Suggested Meetings by default

                                  The "Suggested Meetings" add-on logic is extremely broken. I highlights seemingly-random words and suggests nonsensical meetings. It's also difficult for users to find where to turn it off (not from the add-ins section of the Outlook client, not from the obvious "manage add-ins" menu from O365 settings icon).

                                  I suggest that this feature should be disabled by default.

                                  • Restore Prior Display Desktop Alert Behavior Upon Arrival and Don't Hold Alerts for When I Become Active in Outlook Again

                                    I keep my Windows Desktop Outlook 2016 up and running all the time. My machine DOES NOT go to sleep when I walk away. Outlook is setup to "Display a Desktop Alert" pop-up window in the lower right corner of my desktop screen whenever a message is received. This worked fine until most recent update of 1709 (Build 8528.2139). I do get the messages when I am active in my machine. Howerver, the new behavior that I don't like is when I walk away form my machine for an hour or two or even overnight, Outlook apparently senses the machine…

                                    • Dragging emails from search results

                                      Would be great if you could search for an email and then take the emails right from within the search results and when sorted (by folders) drag them from one folder into another folder right in the search window.

                                      • Warn of Items 'stuck' in Outbox

                                        The single greatest warning in Outlook is "Did you forget to add an attachment"

                                        Please check if items are 'stuck' in the Outbox.

                                        • 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
                                          To: Cindy CCCCC <Cindy.CCCCC@BBB.com>
