  2. 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.

  4. Sound for Outgoing Mail

    We have a internal company joke about flushing down, if you sent an important mail, so it would be really cool to set a sound for outgoing mails.

  5. Suggesting feature: button "Recovery All Items"

    Hello,

    During one decade working with Outlook application I have a opportunity to saw important changes, a evolution of software, and the last version (Office 365) give to us some great things, like 'View Templates' great resource if you sending the same message regularly, making life easier for users.
    After hearing a lot of complaining, my suggest is make users life less complicate: a button to recovery all messages closed, useful when your Outlook close unexpected and you don't have any idea which messages was open, forced to restart your work from zero.

    One single button called "Recovery All Items"…

  6. Backup & Restore in a Easy Way

    Right now there is feature to "export to a file" for data file, which is kind for those who are expert, but to make it more simple, if a option for Backup and restore is there, it will be easy and to manage data more secure.

  7. Please add a Send Individually Button

    I often find I need to send mails to many Distribution Lists which can have a large number of users on and cross-posting is frowned upon by the DL owners

    I value the use & efficiency of my time much more than the time it takes to spend what can be many extra additional minutes (per distribution list) to copy paste and then send emails to many different recipients in the To Field.

    Therefore, to improve the user experience of sending bulk emails (including to large lists that may otherwise just get BCC'd) I would like a button that would…

  8. Vote Tracking

    Tracking details to include email. Should also be able to sort it by the vote type. Should be able to export into excel - currently not available- even if we copy and paste, the tables aligned to the columns... atleast should be enabled.

  9. Ability to add a category to an email as you write one

    I'd like to add Category to the QAT so when I am writing an email I can assign the category to it easily. Current you have to find Options, open that to find categories.

  14. 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.

  15. Ability to Identify "Priority Senders" resulting in a highlighted message and a priority count by the inbox folder

    In todays environment the flood of emails one receives each day is daunting. While everyone thinks that their email should be top priority, if everything is "urgent" then nothing is "urgent". Each individual has a certain list of "senders" whos emails receive priority over all others. Without having to resort to a rule sending these emails to a special folder ( where they risk being ignored in the press of business) I would be useful if the priority sender's emails were highlighted and a count listed by the inbox. this would make it easy to search for those "urgent" messages…

  16. Ausschneiden und Skizzieren per Outlook teilen.

    The "Mail" app is firmly anchored in the Cut and Sketch app. It would be great if Outlook were also anchored there or if you could address other installed programs such as Telegram or WhatsApp to share a screenshot.

  17. Folder Priority Alerts

    Please provide an option to make some folders top priority. Something where Outlook notifies us in a popup that a folder has received an email.

    This will help for companies receiving sales orders, internal high profile delegates, urgent matters, etc...

  18. Automatic Replies (Out of Office) by sender's timezone

    Allow for different out of office/automatic replies based on sender's timezone - will be very useful when on business travel.
    (Allow for "anyone NOT on selected timezone")

  19. Prevent attachments with unsaved changes

    When attaching a file to a message, if the file is open on the PC and has unsaved changes, Outlook should generate a warning message to remind the user to save the file prior to attaching it.
