  3. 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…

  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. 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!!!

  10. Add a quarantine button to view held messages

    Please add a button in Outlook that will either open the user's quarantine folder at https://protection.office.com/quarantine in browser OR preferably inside Outlook. Since there is only one daily quarantine email and it's in the middle of the night, my users aren't checking it. I really want to encourage users to check quarantine for spam.

    It would also be very helpful if the button showed the current count of quarantined messages.

  11. Prompt if subject is missing after email is saved as a draft

    If you save an email without a subject in a draft, you won't get a prompt indicating that there is no subject when you finally send it.

  12. add option 'save and erase all attachments'; names of all erased attachments, time stamp, username added below email text

    add option 'save and erase all attachments'
    add names of all erased attachments, erasing time stamp, and username ("erased by ...") below email text in tt text style

    to keep pst clean and data on SSD, many users do this manually: first saving, then erasing, which is terrible waste of time

    this feature is wished from thousands of users changing from Lotus, which worked like that all the time ...

    Thanks!

  13. Provide way to delete emails in multiple folders without affecting folder structure

    Please provide an easy way to delete multiple emails across multiple folders/subfolders without affecting the folder structure in Outlook. I realize I can right-click on each folder and Delete All (except a folder that has subfolders that I don't want to delete).

    Example is I have a folder with 14 subfolders. From time to time I want to clear out all the emails in those 15 folders without deleting any of the folder structure.

    Thanks!

  14. Mark delayed emails in Outbox with the time it will be sent in Microsoft Outlook 2016

    When you delay an email there I no way to see what time it is set to send. In the outbox folder the pending email should say what time it will be sent. Also, it would be helpful to see easily delay an email versus having to go through the options tab. A confirmation email once sent would be a useful option.

  15. 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.

  16. 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.)

  18. Embed Office Form in the Outlook E-mail

    Embed Office Form in the Outlook E-mail so that when users receive the e-mail, they will not have a second thought to click on the survey link, they will already see that there are only a few and easy-to-answer questions in the survey through the body of the e-mail, and answer it right away because the embedded form is interactive already.

    Advantage: Prevent users from parking the survey then forget that it's there because of the low priority. Presenters can get enough feedbacks through the survey.

  19. Allow users to mark senders as not Junk!!!!

    I'm constantly having to move stuff out of junk from senders I've already identified as trusted. Science Daily is a great newsletter that always ends up in my Junk folder and I've identified it as Not Junk hundreds of times!
