  1. Please provide the unread email count badges on taskbar. It is so useful to know what drops in our mailbox while working on different window

    Please provide the unread email count badges on taskbar. It is so useful to know what drops in our mailbox while working on different task in different window. It will save 30 second to 1 minute. You can imagine how powerful feature would be and there is no doubt that a lot of resource hours ( No of current users * 60 Seconds = x number of hours ) can be saved adding this feature.

  2. Out of Office

    The option for Out of Office for multiple dates should be available/ to set up an automatic Out of Office message if calendar dates are booked as Holiday. Most people have to book holiday early in the year and therefore already know their holiday dates. They do not, however, always remember to set Out of Office before they go.

  5. Need option for disabling "Other Suggestions" for email addresses

    I like to have autocomplete but hate the "Other Suggestions". I am unable to find a way to disable that. It is VERY counterproductive, especially for emails that are no longer valid and I don't get option to remove it

  7. A 'button' to cancel/re-call an already sent e-mail

    More often than not, you find yourself having sent an e-mail with, for instance, wrong dates, facts, times etc.
    We would very much appreciate a feature that can cancel and re-call an already sent e-mail. Thanks!

  8. Outlook Deleted Items option to sort by date/time deleted in Microsoft Outlook 2016

    Allow a sort option in the "Deleted Items" folder to sort by the date/time the item was deleted, rather than the original send date. This would allow easy location of recently-deleted items.

  9. Reduce padding in messages list to fit more messages

    Reduce padding (or add option to configure) in message list to fit more messages.

    The setting could be a similar like Word has to switch between Touch/Mouse mode, but would be better if it had manual control how many pixels a user wants. This could be under View Settings > Advanced View Settings > Other Settings, for example.

  10. Add timezone in email when forwarding/replying to an email.

    When there is back and forth emails between 2 users in different timezones the messages are not having timezones and causing confusion.

    Solution : Add timezones when forwarding/replying to any email.

  11. Copy an Email

    It is easy to copy an email from Inbox list of emails. But if I have an email open in full screen mode, there is no way to copy it as a file. There should be an option to copy it directly from the message window instead of having to go back on Inbox and locate it to copy. This would be real helpful in immediately copying open emails to attach to another or place it somewhere as a file. Thanks.

    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

    Please make Outlook more User Friendly

    Also, please have more pretty stationary email backgrounds in Outlook like IncrediMail has... IncrediMail is shutting down after 20 years and I have to find something to replace it.

  16. Enable the 'From' field in an OFT to be either blank or saved as a different email address

    It would be very useful when creating an Outlook template .OFT file, to be able to either leave the 'From' email address field blank, or save it as an email address of a shared mailbox. Currently when creating an OFT, if you fill in the desired email address (that you have permissions to send from) into the 'From' field, and save the OFT file and close it, when you open the OFT file again, the 'From' email address reverts to the account of whoever opens the OFT file from their Outlook client. If this isn't possible, even just being able…

  17. Please have different notifications for focused inbox and other inbox.

    Allow the user to select a certain sound/notification for the focused inbox and another sound (or no sound) for the other inbox. Will prevent me from stopping my work and checking my email only yo see that I got a general non-urgent email in my other inbox. If I had a chime for my focused inbox and no sound for the other inbox, I could get more work done.

  18. Add a feature to the inbox called "float to the top"

    This feature would keep unread emails at the top of your inbox.

  19. Add 'do not reply to this email' option

    Would not it be fine to add this option so we could prevent people from replying to the emails which we would not like to have replied?

  20. accept proposal button without needing to pop out email

    Every time I get a new time proposal for a meeting I need to open the email for the accept proposal button to show. Why not have the button available in inbox, just like Accept, Tentative and Decline are available when previewing a meeting invite.
