  3. Dark Gray Theme Unread Messages Count not Visible enough in Folder Pane

    When using the Dark Gray Theme in Outlook, the Unread Messages Count in the left Folder Pane should be Blue (or other discernible color) like it is in the Black Office Theme. Currently, it blends into the folder names too easily.

  4. Remove notification from Action Center after status no longer current.

    Notifications should automatically be removed from the Action Center once the state of the notification is no longer current. For example, for "new mail" notifications, once the mail has been read in Outlook, the notification should automatically be removed. Currently the user has to manually clear the notification.

  6. Fix Black Outlook Theme Attach Outlook Items

    With the black office theme in outlook if you start a new email message then go to Attach Item > Outlook Item > Contacts, all of the contacts are white font on white background. You can not see the contacts. Please fix this.

    Also, In black theme, the contrast of the selector to choose postponing a meeting reminder for x minutes is so low it’s extremely hard to read.

  7. Show Vault folders section in different colour

    Option to make Vault Folder and sub-folders with separate background colour. Reason: it's too easy to be searching for a folder, or filing emails, into a Vault folder accidentally, while thinking you are in your main set of folders. A different background colour (or e.g. different font for names) would make clear that you are in the Vault. Thank you for considering.

  10. Outlook 2016 sync issues

    In Outlook 2016, I am missing 5 months worth of sent E-mails. The E-mails are there as can be seen in Outlook.com, however, they will not sync to Outlook 2016. Meanwhile, Outlook 2016 believes that sync is complete. Syncing between Outlook 2016 and Outlook.com seems generally unreliable and slow.

  13. Categories do not appear correctly when column is moved

    Hello,
    in outlook when we affect a category to mail a square of the category's color normally appears in the "category" column.
    But in Outlook 2016, according to the place where you have placed the column "category", the colored square appears or not :
    - If the column is placed to the right, the colored square appears.
    - If the column is placed to the left (what I want) the colored square is not displayed. Only the text. This unpractical for all previewed different categories.

    It's a bug and I've reported it as such to the Outlook Team. Thanks!
    A…

  17. Harmonize Outlook 2016 with Windows Mail, Windows Calendar, Outlook OWA & Microsoft ToDo

    There is too much inconsistency between Outlook 2016, Outlook OWA and Microsoft ToDo.

    It would be great if the relevant feature sets in all three were available in each.

    For example, features in Outlook 2016 Tasks was in all three;

    Recently MS ToDo introduced steps within an item. Why isn't that feature also included in Outlook 2016 Tasks.

  18. New Meeting Reminder behavior in Outlook 2016

    Here are a few suggestions that I hope will be reviewed as a better implementation of the Outlook Reminder Window:

    1) Change Outlook's systray icon so it shows a triggered reminder by flashing and/or overlay with some indicator
    2) Use a new icon for #2
    3) Prevent reminder from appearing on top when full-screen application is running
    4) Configure the pop-up behavior based on type of meeting or response
    5) Use a different instance of the Reminder window so it has its own taskbar entry and does not get stacked underneath the Outlook application in the taskbar when the user…
