  1. Account OAuth2 signin

    Outlook 2016 should allow users to authenticate using OAuth2. This is the only supported option for connecting a Gmail account, and it's a lot more secure than many other authentication solutions. It would make life a lot easier, because many webmail services utilise OAuth.

  2. Customize keyboard shortcuts including keyboard shortcuts to sort as well as move emails by date and subject in Microsoft Outlook 2016

    Other Office applications allow you to customize keyboard shortcuts. So should Outlook 2016. Also provide shortcut keys to sort emails as well as move emails by date and subject. I keep using sorting by date and sort by subject frequently to read the mail history. If outlook can support shortcut keys to do sorting, it will save lots of my efforts.
    In the Reminders window, change the shortcut for snooze to ‘O’ instead of ‘S’. It will be more intuitive then a shortcut that means “Save” everything else. Also it will be much safer, because the letter S, on the…

  3. Sync text messages with Outlook

    Please bring back the feature of setting up and sync SMS messages with Outlook. It would be nice to have Outlook be the hub of all communication.

  4. Still be able to make a manual exchange configuration

    Outlook 2016 removes the ability to manually enter Exchange credentials. This is fine in normal operation as Autodiscover should be working but it is a pain during a migration.

    Ideally, when moving to 365 or an alternate Exchange service in an SME environment, it is nice to configure all of the new profiles before switching to the new service. One can then simply tell users that on the Monday after the move they have to open "New Profile" when prompted and all of their email (which was imported over the weekend) is ready for them.

    Creating the 365 (or other)…

  5. Universal Unsubscribe Button!

    Please add a button that allows the user to unsubscribe from a mailing list with just one click! Instead of having to click unsubscribe/fill out the form to confirm email/uncheck mailing addresses/reply with "stop" etc, one button automatically kills that email from appearing in your inbox again. Worst case this turns into a better version of the "junk" feature and re-reroutes to an "Unsubscribed" folder/filter if it can't automatically unsubscribe for you.

  6. Use the native service authentication (like the Mobile version)

    Most of my mail accounts (Outlook.com and GMail) have two factor authentication set up. It's really annoying to add them to Outlook 2016. I have to generate a app password on each of the accounts, and use them to log in.

    Your mobile apps (iOS and Android) use the "native" service authentication (redirect me to the site, I log in, authorize the app and I'm good to go). I find it a much better way to log in, since I don't need to go to another site and generate a password. All I need is my phone.
