  1. Email Signature Sync across devices

    It would be great if Outlook sync'd your email signature across multiple devices so that you only have to set or update it once.

    • Provide an option to schedule Out of Office replies for multiple holidays / events in advance

      Currently I can only schedule my out of office for one occasion. Allow an option to pre-schedule multiple occasions. For example On July 3rd, when I set it up for 4th of July, allow me to schedule it for the Labor Day, Columbus Day, Thanks Giving, Christmas, etc. That way I can set them up when I am not very busy. Also, provide an option to activate / deactivate them. We have 10 or so holidays, so allow a few more and provide 15+ schedule alternatives. Note: I think the common holidays should be default for everybody.

      • An issue where two Outlook sessions started when clicking on the Outlook (64 bit) icon. This followed using the 'Open in new window' option

        An issue where two Outlook sessions started (windows 10) when clicking on the Outlook (64 bit) icon. This followed having used the 'Open in new window' option. I resolved this manually by removing the shortcuts and recreating them from the Outlook.exe file. This is however a bug and needs to be resolved

              • Disable sync for "Background" and "Theme" settings between devices

                Disable sync for "Background" and "Theme" settings between devices! I need the light theme on my PC, and the dark theme on my table. The only theme for all devices interferes.

                      • Don't show add-ins that can't run

                        Outlook has now decided to use the "Suggested Meetings" add-in to tell me when it thinks I should make a meeting. However, running this just brings up a box "Sorry, we couldn't load the add-in because your version of Internet Explorer is not supported". Since it can't actually run the add-in anyway, there is not any point offering to run it.

                                    EVEN THOUGH I CHANGED MY DEFAULT BROWSER TO CHROME, EDGE IS STILL THE DEFAULT FOR SOME HYPERLINKS. YOU'RE BECOMING TOO CONTROLLING, MICROSOFT. UH, LIKE ALSO NOT LETTING USERS DISABLE CERTAIN DEFAULT PROGRAMS IN WINDOWS, NOT LETTING A PERSON GO WITHOUT A LOG IN TO BOOT A COMPUTER. WHY DON'T YOU ALL JUST MOVE IN WITH ME. THAT WAY YOU CAN MONITOR EVERYTHING I DO ON MY COMPUTER?

                                    • Provide a "Sort" option in the Blocked Senders list.

                                      The "Sort" option should sort the blocked senders' emails by date, domain name and user name. This would allow deleting old names or some domains that no longer send junk/spam.

                                      • Allow user to silence out of office warning for a period of time, or until the defined window is up.

                                        It's very annoying to get a yellow warning every time Out of Office is turned on. You set a start and end time knowing when those times are, why warn me every time I open Outlook that it's in effect? Very annoying and unnecessary. Allow me to acknowledge and silence the warning like you can for a calendar reminder or get rid of the warning altogether.
