  1. Outlook should remember its windows sizes and positions

    When I open a new Windows inside Outlook for e.g. the Calendar or Tasks, pick a position for it and resize it according to my needs, it should be saved, so once those windows are closed and then reopened, I don't need to do this again.

    An older Office Version had this feature, but it seems to have been removed.

    Some details on this can be found here, please read the last statement from Jennifer from Microsoft.

  3. The "Keyboard Shortcuts: Customize Button" in Outlook 2016

    Office programs allow users to customize keyboard shortcuts in the "Customize the Ribbon" dialog window. Why doesn't Outlook? The "Keyboard Shortcuts: Customize" button is missing.

  4. Allow to "Customize the Ribbon" with drag/drop to improve it.

    When the "Customize the Ribbon" dialog box is open, I should be able to click and drag on the buttons in the actual ribbon of the normal Outlook button to rearrange the buttons. The current Ribbon Customize interface is not very intuitive and many ribbon sections cannot be customized further. For example the "Respond" section, or "Delete" section have a specific group of buttons. I can change the location of the group, but I cannot add/remove buttons within the group.

    Also in the earlier builds of Outlook you can easily customize ribbon from the right-click context menu, and the ability…

  7. Allow changing of IMAP email address

    Before updating Outlook, was I able to easily change the email address for an IMAP account. With the latest update, the ability to change the email address on the account was removed and replaced with a static label. Please bring back the ability to change the email address, I use it frequently!

  9. Spaces should be allowed in hyperlinks (need a setting) - right now it stops at first space

    I cannot find a feature in Outlook that can be set so that spaces are allowed in hyperlinks (especially for file-names in network paths, etc. Currently, when you have a filename or a directory name which contains a space (allowed in Windows), the autoformatting for hyperlinks stops the hyperlink at the first space, so in most cases, the hyperlink can't find the location, and an error message window pops up. Is there a setting anywhere that can permit this, where autocorrect would at least ask you if the link is correct, or does it continue until an <Enter> or <CR-LF>,…

  17. Sizw of the letters in Outlook

    I think all maps in Outlook should get the same size on the letters if you change it in one window for exaple if I change it in the incoming map, it should get the same síze in the sent map and all my other maps. And get it easier to change it as well, as it is very hard to find out where to do that!

  19. Don't change settings without asking

    I missed important emails because Outlook automatically shuffled my inbox into Focused and Other.
    My idea is: Don't do that again.

  20. I absolutely hate the black pop-up boxes in lower right of the screen for meetings, connections, etc. Terribly disruptive!

    Please provide a way to eliminate the black popup boxes in the lower right that give meeting reminders, email arrivals, connections, etc. Very disruptive to work.
