  1. multiple accounts

    When having multiple Exchange accounts set up in Outlook, I would like to choose from which accounts I want to see a pop-up for new mail, or see the tasks in My tasks. Now I see a pop-up for every mail, regardless from which account it coms from.

  3. 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

  4. login in problem with outlook 2016/365

    When you start Outlook 2016 (and other office products) it sometimes asks you to log in. It is very unclear whether that log in is for the office 365 account or for an Exchange Server account.

  9. 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.

  10. 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...
    Also if you are using a shared computer, an option to sign out from Outlook 2016 Client rather than closing the application would be much better.

  12. 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.

  13. 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.

  14. 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.

  15. 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.

  16. Show the login window on top of the Microsoft Outlook 2016 enabling emails to be hidden for security.

    Show the login window on top of the Microsoft Outlook 2016 enabling emails to be hidden for security. Once the user has entered and validated the credentials, the emails should be revealed.

  17. 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

  18. 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.

  19. Allow Templates (in add-ins ) to be available through a single click and expand/collapse options for templates in Microsoft Outlook 2016

    Have to click Add-ins, then My Templates before we can see them, every time. Would be useful if we could just turn them on and have permanently in a side bar. (which could be hidden if needed)
    Also, there should be an Expand /Collapse option for the templates in Outlook 2016

  20. Add Yammer feature to Microsoft Outlook 2016

    It would be beneficial and efficient for team members if all Yammer notifications and other Yammer features such as group conversations, access to Yammer files etc. can be included in Microsoft Outlook 2016
