  1. Reply All prompt in Outlook 2016

    Have a prompt pop up asking if you want to "Reply All"...? As some people in business need to send or reply to others with sensitive material, it would help to have a useful tool.

  4. 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.

  5. Option to repair Microsoft Outlook 2016 by right clicking the Outlook icon in the toolbar.

    Enable the option to Repair Outlook 2016 feature by right clicking the Outlook Icon in the Toolbar. That way when the program wont load and you keep getting the processing message for quite a long time, you can just right click the icon and outlook will diagnose and repair itself.

  6. Option to export and import email accounts and account settings in Microsoft Outlook 2016

    Option to export and import email accounts and settings including Server details and advanced settings to a file from Microsoft Outlook 2016.

    In Microsoft Outlook 2016 it would be beneficial if we are provided with an ability to export individual email account settings including name, email address, server information for incoming and outgoing, username, password and the advanced settings to a file so we can take a backup and use the same file in re-configuring the email account when troubleshooting issues related to Microsoft Outlook 2016. All that needs to be added is the email account password to complete the…

  7. Desktop Notification settings for different accounts in Microsoft Outlook 2016

    Option to set different desktop toast notification settings for different accounts configured in Microsoft Outlook 2016 option to either receive desktop notifications for email sent to specific email account. Currently we can't set different settings for different accounts. Also extending them for Calendar items would be an added benefit. Being able to move the alert box to the upper left corner of my right monitor kept the alert notification out of the way but very noticeable. I am running Windows 10 and Outlook 2016. Also an option to have Quick response to Notifications (e.g. When receiving a mail, you can…

  8. Improve the "Manage rules and alerts" or there should be a rule like "Move after I read" the emails in Outlook 2016

    The rules and alerts are powerful and very important in properly organizing Microsoft Outlook inbox. However it has been observed:

    The User Interface is old. The dialog cannot be re-sized and managing many rules becomes tedious.

    All the rules are not compatible between web version and desktop client even when the features are available on both. While not having some sounds or special events on the web version can be understandable, not being able to categorize the emails is annoying. It would be nice to have some "cleanup features" to review the rules. Also Creation of rules to automatic categorization…

  9. Use HTML format for answer and forward emails automatically

    It would be very useful, to choose the option, to send answered and forwarded emails in HTML format by default.

  10. 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.

  11. 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…

  12. 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.

  13. 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)…

  14. 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.

  15. 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.
