  1. 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

  2. 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 It is VERY counterproductive, especially for emails that are no longer valid and I don't get option to remove it

  4. Provide a feature in Outlook to Silently Retract or Recall Messages

    Outlook Cannot Silently Retract Messages. Outlook can retract (called Message Recall in Outlook), but whether successful or not, the recipient knows that the attempt was made (and the attempt includes the subject line).

  6. Read Later

    Just like the Archive folder and option within Outlook, w would like to see a folder, Ribbon button and context menu option called "Read Later". This is useful to help keep the Inbox organized and clean.

  7. Alert for too many recipients in the "To" field

    I would love it if an alert would pop up if more than 15 or 20 names are entered in the "To" field. The alert might read, "Are you sure you want to include so many names in this field? Consider pasting your list of recipients in the "Bcc" field instead."
    This would have served as a reminder and saved me much embarrassment (twice now!!) because of sending an email where all 500+ email addresses appear before the body of the email.

    Thank you!!!

  8. 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.

  9. Provide 'Recipient' status whether he has seen mail or not before Recall/Resend email

    Provide 'Recipient' status whether he has seen mail or not before Recall/Resend email

    Current Functionality:
    Click on Email->File->Message Resend and Recall
    Tow options there: 1. Resend message for unseen recipient and 2. Recall message.
    Once sender use this then he will get notification of how many recipients message has been recalled.

    Improvement:
    When user is clicking on 'File->Message Resend and Recall'
    Is it possible to give 'Recipient' status whether he has seen message or not. So that sender will decide that Resend/Recall is fruitful or not.

    For e.g.
    If sender wants to update message for recipient 'A' but he has…

    I don't see the recall option, which I think is an important feature.

  11. 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.

  14. Automatic Replies - Please provide an All Day Option

    Currently automatic replies shows:
    Only send during this time range:
    Start time: [date] [time]
    End time: [date] [time]

    can you add an "all day" option like every other modern calendar has so I dont need to set 12:00 AM for start time and 11:30 PM for end time?

  15. The ability to bounce emails

    Combat spam by bouncing emails back to a sender making them think your email address is not valid. I used to do this all the time when using an older email client on Windows XP. I started when I was getting over 100 spam emails a day, and managed to reduce this to 2 a week

  16. 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.

  18. folder pane density

    Increase the folder pane density so I can see more of my folders. (It seems that the font is large and there is a lot of dead space between each collapsed folder to make touch screen use easier, but the billions of users that still use a mouse may find this wasteful and inefficient to scroll through tons of folders.)

  19. Highlight external email senders automatically in Outlook

    Enable to see companies adding big colorful warning banners in their emails warning about it being from an external source. It seems like this should just be a native function within Outlook that administrators can enable so that the Names/Emails of any external people are highlighted specifically, and also put a warning icon or something next to the subject or something similar to make it very easy to discern internal vs external emails while not needing to inject unnecessary banners that impede the readability of email threads.

  20. Upload attachments to Teams' channel folder

    It would be great nice if I could upload attachments to Teams' channel folder. Currently, only folder I can upload is root folder of document library but it is not root folder of Teams. I have to do several more steps to save appropriate folder.
