      Thank you for taking the time to provide feedback about the new icons. We know any change to the user experience can be disruptive at first, especially major changes like updating all the icons. Even though these new icons have been through many rounds of feedback and refinement with real customers, we’re sorry you’re not finding the new icons helpful.

      The new icons incorporate customer feedback we had received on the old icon design: bolder lines and higher color contrast helps make icons are more visible when using your computer near a window, a laptop in direct sunlight, or for folks with less than perfect vision. The new icons are also built using scalable graphics so they are never pixelated and can adapt to any device — whether it’s a monitor you’ve had for many years or a brand new 4K display. We’re also evolving the user interface designs on…

    • Reply all with attachments included in Outlook 2016

      In Microsoft Outlook 2016, when reply all to the email with attachments, the attachments are not available and we have to attach them manually. An option to reply all to the email with all the attachments included would be more productive in Microsoft Outlook 2016 as that option is not available as of now.

      • Auto complete using full contact list instead of just "recent contacts"

        When I'm writing an email, I would like to be able to type an email from my contacts into the "to" bar and have outlook autocomplete the email without me having to go to the contacts menu.

        • Allow signatures to be synced between different machines for the same office 365 account

          I use more than one machine to read & send emails using Outlook 365. I would like any signature that I create to be automatically synced (including with office.com) so that it is available regardless of which machine I am using.

          • Allow us to change the font, its size and choice of style for the to, cc, bcc and subject lines of email

            Allow us to change the font, its size, and style for the to, cc, bcc and subject lines of an email. I have checked online and lots of people have this problem, no fix has been suggested. July 24, 2018

              • change folders color - change table rows color

                I'd like to identify the folders by color and do the same for incoming mail in table view. Also would be great to change rows color in table view.

                  • Block Senders Domain in Junk

                    When getting lots of junk email with same domain name(with different email accounts) it would be great if we get an option to block senders domain. We can edit the blocked senders , but its again a tedious process and we may end up doing this daily. Adding a button on Junk so we can block the senders domain right away would be an easier way to tackle this menace.

                    • Allow to change colour for inline comments only

                      Now user is enabled only to change the text style for replys in MS Outlook, but not only for inline comments. It would be a wonderful option to choose a separate style for replays and for inline comments as I would like to keep a standard style for general replays and choose a different coloured text for inline comments (to be separated in the previous e-mail).

                        Add a "search" box to the email MOVE feature on the desktop version of Outlook (like there is on the online version). This feature is a huge time saver.

                        • Disable/Remove "Outlook found new events" & "Outlook found a new event" features

                          Remove "Outlook found new events" in Outlook 365 and "Outlook found a new event" in Outlook mail. It is a useless feature. It is forced into outlook Email and a waste of space. All events such as Amazon receipts/orders/shipping notices already indicate everything needed that is repeated again on the useless "Outlook found new events."

                          • Automatically replace recipient when replying to emails from Sent folder

                            Scenario:

                            I want to follow up on an email I already sent. I click the message in my SENT folder and then "Reply." I end up sending a message to myself.

                            Some competitor products that shall not be named automatically replace the recipient in this scenario with the recipient of the original email, to avoid the awkward situation of replying to myself.

                            • Provide colored folders as folders are now transparent and hard to navigate visually

                              In the newest version of outlook it is very difficult to visually manage folders because the new uncolored folders (transparent) blend in with the text. There is no visual anchor on each item and it is difficult to visually search for or read the labels.

                                It would be great if Outlook introduced drawing/ink ability to markup emails or even the calendar.
                                And inked content could be exportable to OneNote or other Office programs.

                                        • "Clutter" inbox superior to new "Focused" and "Other" tabs at the top of inbox

                                          I found the "Clutter" inbox to be better than the new "Focused" and "Other" tabs, which are really distracting because they display new "junk mail" prominently at the top of my inbox.
