  1. Out Of Office in Outlook 2016

    If several accounts (e-mail) are in Outlook, it would be great if you could Install an Out of Office reply (different) for EACH of the accounts (e-mail addresses). It also refers to inclusion of POP, IMAP and Exchange based accounts.

    • My idea is when Outlook updates, stop resetting every (or most) defaults. It is a waste of time having to reset everything

      Very simple - stop updates from resetting defaults all (or most) of the time. Every time, I have to go through all of my business computers to reset them the way I do business rather than the way that Microsoft wants me to do business.

      • Provide a feature or an option to skip the auto-account setup in Microsoft Outlook 2016

        Provide a feature or an option to skip the auto-account setup in Microsoft Outlook 2016.
        There really needs to be an option to completely bypass account setup and start Microsoft Outlook 2016 with no email(like in previous versions), and add email accounts and outlook data files later - manually.

        • Sign out from all devices

          Really need an option to sign out instantly from all of your devices.
          If you wake up with a stolen phone, you just can't sign out instantly...

          • You need to bring back the ability to sign out on the Windows program.

            Working on shared computers and not being able to log out of accounts is ridiculous. I am not the administrator of this computer and cannot physically make changes, nor can I ask every single person who uses this computer (work study on college campus) to set up their own passwords and accounts. I should be able to simply log in and out when I need to.

            • Restore support in PRF files

              The new way to set an automatic user mail profile, with the ZCE registry key, doesn't leave you away to set additional mail profile, unless you change the key to 0.
              No supporting the prf file makes it impossible to open outlook with a specific profile (importprf), so if you have several users that uses the same mailbox you have to manually set the specific mail box.
              Please Restore support in PRF files.
              Thanks
              Tamar

              • Configure outlook to only download last n days email

                Provide account configuration so that we can limit the # of days of email that download from the server to the Outlook client.

                Rationale: sometimes we want or need to limit the amount of email that appears client-side, even though we want to keep more / older mail server side.

                For example, when traveling with data might put it at risk, when disk space is limited, etc.

                • Allow more flexible choices for cache mode sync slider age limit

                  What I'd really like for cache mode sync slider is to either keep everything, or to keep 15 months. What is good about 15 months is that I often find myself looking back to mails I sent about a year ago for events, business processes or systems that are approximately annual. So 12 months is too little (because stuff ages out too soon), but 24 months is overkill.

                        • UPN or Primary address Automation

                          Whenever a user's UPN, Primary address changes the outlook profiles remain using the old UPN or Primary address showing up as the Sent from by default an option for select FROM to change the new Primary address exists on a per email or per reply basis. Why not make this change an automated feature across board? when the Primary address changes Outlook is unable to pick up this change unless you create a new outlook profile and add your account using the new address. Will you ever make this automated?

                          • Improve the Simplified Account Creation experience

                            Outlook has introduced a new simplified account creation experience for the Office 365 service. This new functionality enables users to more easily configure Outlook with a one click experience after signing into Office and connecting to the service.

                            If the new simplified account creation experience does not work in your environment and you need to disable it please give us feedback about why it did not work and any suggested improvements. Please add feedback using the Comments tab on this topic below.

                              • Option to make Microsoft Outlook 2016 work with Outlook.com connected accounts

                                Enable Outlook 2016 (when using an outlook.com account) to:
                                i) send from a 'Connected Account' set up via outlook.com
                                ii) reflect the default 'From' address of an outlook.com account

                                Currently in Outlook 2016, we can set up Outlook.com Accounts as Microsoft Exchange accounts however we cannot use connected account to reply or use as 'From' address. We can manually enter it, but the message appears as from "[xxxxxx]@outlook.com on behalf of ]xxxxx]@[mydomain].com"

                                Enable Outlook 2016 with an Outlook.com account to support connecting with Aliases that are not Microsoft domain accounts.  
                                i) some users were using EAS with a custom alias…

                                    • Enable Archive button to be manageable by policy

                                      Entreprise configuration for Archive folder
                                      We need an entreprise way to configure the Archive folder. When clicking on the Archive button for the first time the user can choose a folder. She can also select another folder by using the Options menu. But we need a way to preconfigure this for all users, and also to lock the folder which is used for archiving.

                                        • Provide an option to Integrate Skype directly into Microsoft Outlook 2016

                                          Provide an option to integrate Skype directly into Microsoft Outlook 2016. In addition a separate tab for Skype to show Tasks as well as see email conversations related to people you are chatting would be beneficial. If it is possible to get the group chats included in the folders section of your mail and have it flash when someone writes a new message.
