  1. Provide a feature of main folder Locking in Microsoft Outlook 2016

    Some people may have a lot of sub-folders within a folder on the left side column. It would be handy if the main folder could be locked to the underside of the line that separates 'Favorites' with the folders beneath. Why, because when you need to scroll down to the last sub folder for example, you need to scroll all the way back up to be able to close the main folder, thus hiding all the sub folders. So, instead of scrolling, if the main folder heading is locked and doesn't disappear when scrolling it would be much easier to…

  3. Get rid of yellow background highlight on flagged messages or allow it to be disabled

    The new Outlook update puts a yellow background highlight on flagged messages. It is awful to look at an inbox full of yellow highlights. Please remove this highlighting or allow it to be disabled.

  5. Ability to add a custom mandatory field to emails while sending them.

    There should be an option to add a custom mandatory field (similar to how the "To" field is mandatory). Reason for this is that in a support based role, it would be great if we could add a Ticket Reference/Work Item number into the mandatory field, which prompts me to enter this before sending any email. This means that we can always track the email chains by ensuring we forced to enter this information. Also, if this custom field can be part of the automated search function.

  6. Provide automatically each new mail with a unique ID number (possibly a progressive number) in Microsoft Outlook 2016

    As Corporate we need to assign to each outbound message a specific reference number.
    This has been indeed a MUST on all commercial exchange in the past.
    Current e-mail providers (Outlook) does not include the option to automatically assign an unique ID reference number to every in/out coming mails. This is a big mess

  7. Provide a feature to enable notifications on the active device only in Microsoft Outlook 2016

    Provide a feature to enable notifications on the active device only in Microsoft Outlook 2016 to avoid multiple devices receiving notifications for the same account.

    If I'm using Outlook on my PC and I receive a new email, I don't need my phone going off in my pocket about it. Similar to functionality in Teams.

  8. Switch for multiple views

    It will be better if we can save multiple views with different name and switch between whenever a different view is needed.

  9. I want to check the setting status of Automapping

    Automatic mapping is enabled by default, but GUI / PowerShell does not know the situation.
    We want you to be able to confirm the setting situation of auto mapping with either GUI / PowerShell.

    自動マッピング機能の設定状況を確認したい

    Automappingは既定では有効になっているが、GUI/PowerShell からはその状況がわからない。
    Automappingの設定状況を、GUI/PowerShellのどちらかで確認できるようにしてほしい

  10. Please implement the. NST document to set the default path

    Hi all, Most of the emails we manage have to join and subscribe to multiple groups because of their work needs, Generated. NST documents stored in the C disk directory will produce more than 20G of occupation, and we use for some of our colleagues to use the cloud system, C disk space itself is not too large, if you can not move to custom directories, such as: When setting up messages by default to the D disk, or we really do not, or even use the modified registry to achieve storage location more Change.
    That often colleagues C disk…

  13. Provide a feature or an option of a shortcut for the Message Recall function in Microsoft Outlook 2016

    Un raccourcis sur la fonction rappeler un message ne serait vraiment pas du luxe :(

    A shortcut on the function recall a message would not really be luxury :(

    La fonction existe depuis toujours mais elle est quasi introuvable y compris en passant par l’aide en ligne … et rappeler un email est une demande régulière.

    The function has always existed, but it is almost impossible to find even by using the online help ... and remembering an email is a regular request.

  14. Provide a feature to send multiple Out-Of-Office messages to the same sender in Microsoft Outlook 2016

    Currently Office will send only one out of office message to each sender. Senders usually don't remember the period of absence, so if it is longer than usual they will send messages again, will not receive autoreply, and will believe that I am in the office but ignoring them. There should be an option to choose if you wish to send out of office in reply to more than 1 message from a given sender.

  18. The product is office 2019 and outlook is denying access from other programs trying to send emails and keeps asking permission.

    The product is office 2019 and outlook is denying access from other programs trying to send emails ( Recon Accounts in my instance ) and keeps asking for permission. It Says " A program is trying to send an email message on your behalf. If this is unexpected, click Deny and verify your antivirus software is up-to-date ." it needs an option for when we say allow, we need it to say remember and never ask me again.

  19. Stop treating the use of a Teams link in a meeting as a change to the meeting

    Currently, if someone creates a Teams meeting link in a meeting and an attendee clicks the link to join the meeting, the meeting treats this as a change to the meeting. When you go to close any meeting window after joining via the teams link, Outlook creates a dialog box asking if you want to save changes. This just serves as a completely unnecessary additional click anytime I want to close a meeting. Please stop the use of a link being logged as a change to the meeting. It's quite annoying!
