  1. Email to Todo Integration

    I would LOVE to have the ability to click a button in my email to add it to the Todo app, title it, and highlight a link from the email as a "launchable link": from Todo. If I then click the email task in Todo, it should be able to take me directly to where I need to be to respond to that item, whether that's the email itself or a link from the email (hence highlight link). So inefficient to manually add it, then when I want to complete it, hunt the email, as email inbox itself often gets…

  2. Please add a confirmation pop-up when utilizing "mark All as read" that gives the option to cancel.

    at least when doing it to an inbox folder or a large number of selected emails (not for an individual email or for a few selected emails).

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. Provide option to display all recipients by default

    When there are more addressees in To or CC than fit on two lines (depending on the size of the message pane), Outlook does not display all, but adds a "+2 others", "+18 others", or however many. I would like the option to automatically show all recipients rather than having to click on the "others" indicator to expand it every time.

  8. For filing email on the desktop app, you should be able to use keys to get to specific folders more quickly

    Currently, for filing email in the desk top app, you need to select through the file structure, folder level by folder level, to get to a particular folder. You should be able to use keys to get to a specific folder more quickly. On the app, you can start typing the folder name and it pops up folders with the letters, as you type, and so you can just tap on the folder to select.

  9. 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?

  12. Away Feature

    It would be nice to have an away feature without having to set up the auto reply. Example - if you are just going to be gone for an afternoon.

  14. create 'read' mode for emails on full screen.

    Due to looong participants list, the email window is smaller. Please create an option of viewing only email body on full screen. This option should only keep the email body and nothing else.

  16. Greeting by default in reply

    Make possible to setup automatic greeting at the beginning of the letter, when we using "reply" function

    For example, to put in the beginning of the letter next words by default: "Dear [NAME OF SENDER],"

    It will save a lot of time, instead of typing all the same every time.

  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. Need One-Click Clear Flag Option

    Currently only have option to click and "Mark complete". I never use the mark complete option, need a way to click once and clear flag altogether. Only possibility now is to right click and choose clear from drop down menu.
