  1. 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?

  4. Provide an option of creating configurable Quick Steps or increase number of quick steps for each Account in Microsoft Outlook 2016

    Provide an option of creating configurable Quick Steps or increase number of quick steps for each Account in Microsoft Outlook 2016 as well as allow them to be moved or copied between different Mailboxes or accounts. Also provision of a separator like a simple line separator element to the Manage Quick Steps and assist in grouping of similar actions would be an added benefit. There should be a possibility to link in a Task a Quickstep, so that it can be used from the Task directly.

  11. Guessmart options unchecked by default

    When troubleshooting Outlook and Exchange connectivity issues, it's very common the Test Email AutoConfiguration tool is used as one of the troubleshooting steps. Rarely, at least in my experiencing, are the two Guessmart options needed to be checked. My idea is to have the Guessmart troubleshooting options unchecked by default.

  15. Make Provide Feedback with Sound option available to be set from withing Outlook 2016

    The Office Sounds add-in works with Outlook when installed, but since there's no Provide Feedback with Sound option in Outlook settings, that needs to be turned on from any other Office application like Word which have this checkbox. It should be available in Advanced options category, like in Word.

    Reference the Sounds add-in downloadable here, https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=7015.

  18. Better Categories management or Color categorize occurrence of a repeating meeting in Microsoft Outlook 2016

    Categories are an excellent, more modern, and flexible alternative to folders. However, managing and assigning categories in Outlook (both client and web) for POP, IMAP as well as Exchange.

    For ex.: Right now we are unable to condense long email conversations unless we organize by date. A feature where you can tag or categorize an entire conversation in the condensed format would be hugely helpful.

    Often I need to be able to find all of the meetings for a specific committee or board but doesn't seem to be an option – a few more colors would also be good. Hereby…

  19. Add an option in Quick Step that would allow you to remove a specific category.

    Quick Step currently has the option to clear all categories. It would be great if an additional option could be added to clear a single specific category as well.

  20. Delete e-mail if there is no valid e-mail address or valid domain or the true sender instead of the name displayed in the “from” field

    Would like the Outlook team to alter the behavior of “block sender” to block the true sender instead of the name displayed in the “from” field. One example is a message with an actual sender of xyz@domain1.com that shows as abc@domain2.com in the from field. When adding the sender to the block list, the REAL sender is not blocked by Outlook in the current design. Really cool would be logic that blocks both the actual sender and the address in the from field, or a prompt for each prior to adding to blocked senders

    Also, there should be an option…
