  2. Provide a feature to change the font/size in the email adress bar to read more easily the recipients in Outlook 2016

    It would be great if there would be some settings that would allow Outlook users to modify the font size in the email address bar. This way the email address of the recipient could be read more easily

  5. IMAP categories

    Allow categories for IMAP email messages; this can be with local folder category settings or using the categories of a connected Exchange/MAPI folder if it is selected as the default folder.

    I'm trying to switch to Inbox Zero, but since a unified Inbox is not really possible because I do not get Send As delivery of connected accounts in Outlook.com, I can at least use color categories in my IMAP accounts.

  7. Outlook should display Profile name in the title bar

    Outlook client should display name of the profile name in the title bar like it shows If I have 5 profiles and I load one of them, I never know which profile I am currently using.

    Believe this would be a really useful feature and hope to see it upcoming updates.

  9. Separate categories pane in outlook 2016

    Add a Categories Pane to Outlook. I'm a big user of categories and it would be great to allow for easily selecting and adding categories to Outlook items. The current process of right-clicking and then assigning 1-by-1 or selecting "All Categories" and then choosing multiple selections are both cumbersome (same thing when accessing from the ribbon). A pane would ease my current pain.

  10. Night View

    I'd like to see a button that would allow me to quickly switch to a night view.
    I work night shift and spend a lot of time on Outlook.
    This would make it much easier on my eyes.
    Many applications have a night view.

  12. Undo a Quick Steps operation

    Undo a Quick Steps operation. Accidental clicks happen all the time, and the lack of undo feature makes Quick Steps unusable.

  15. Make categories searchable

    I use Outlook, for both mail, calendar and contacts, often the category labels to bring order. However these are not searchable. It's a powerful feature especially if you use it when searching. It would be nice if there is a box where you can search the category * * * * quickly by typing a few letters, especially if you use many categories.

  16. Option to print only first page for "chanined" long E-mails

    When receiving a new E-mail which is a new comment to many older mails below it should be possible to print only the "new" first page. Each time (1) open the E-Mail (2) select print (3) select print only page 1 and than (4) click to print is very annoying.

  17. Full featured reminders window

    I use the reminders window as a to-do list. I have multiple items in my reminders window, including meetings, tasks and flagged emails. I would like to see some of the following:
    - user adjustable window size to see a longer reminder list
    - More fields / field column chooser (such as owner, folder,category, etc.)
    - Ability to sort by these columns
    - Checkbox column to quickly clear completed tasks
    - Ability to see upcoming reminders (perhaps 1 day or 1 week's worth)
    - Set reminders for any field / object (several plugins allow this)
    - Quickly reset reminder date…

  18. Provide an option to open emails in tabs instead of new windows

    Provide an option to open emails (when double clicked) to tabs in Outlook rather than in a new window, similar to how it works on webmail and Lotus Notes.

    This would help greatly with reducing screen clutter and work efficiency.
