  1. snooze email syncing for a specific inbox

    on my android phone, I love that I can snooze an inbox for weekends, outside business hours and until I wish to restart it. I would love this feature in outlook app for windows 10.

  2. 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.

  4. 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...

  5. 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")

  6. 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.

  9. Get your e-mail quickly into a folder

    3 mouse clicks on a e-mail in the inbox and it will automatically be placed in its predefined folder.

    We have a lot of folders and now we have to search everytime for the folder.

    I know that you can place it automatticly into a folder but we first want to answer it in inbox folder and when we are answered it we place it in a customer folder.

  14. Reduce size of message preview pane header in Outlook 2016

    Reduce size of message preview pane header in Outlook 2016
    I shrink it back down to the size it was in Office 2010.
    remove the "Reply, Reply All, Forward, IM" buttons at the top of the header?
    Reduce the size of the font for the "From" field? (And hopefully the size of the spacing around it.)
    Change the font color to black? The greyish faded color in 2016 is hard read.
    It's just taking away useful space for the preview and replacing it with visual clutter.

    Similar to the paperclip to denote if you have an email with an attachment, could you add something to denote that there is a url link on the email?

  16. If emailing more than a set number of contacts prompt the user if they meant to use BCC.

    An organization can set that if a user adds more than 10, 25, 50, 100 (whatever set number) contacts to an email prior to sending the user is prompted if they meant to use BCC.

    Similar to the prompt if the user meant to add an attachment when the attachment is missing.

    Would greatly reduce reply all issues.

  17. Email Recipient Reminder

    Like to see a Email Recipient Reminder, something that will pop-up on a person's screen to say, have you attended to this email?
    It needs to be a function that when sending to someone they receive a pop-up message to say, "Would you like us to remind you to action this email?". The sender would have to firstly elect to use this option.

  18. Provide a feature or option to allow rules to be searched in Microsoft Outlook 2016

    There are many users that have many rules activated on their Outlook accounts. In the Desktop client, you cannot easily search these rules to find ones you know to be out of date, etc. I spend far too much time sifting thru my rules to find the one I need to update, disable, or delete.

  19. Secure Outlook Email

    Normally when email received popup will be shown on windows UI for new email from sender and with subject.

    Sometime you are sending some confidential email and your intention is other not to see and there should not be any popup on UI and till the time email not opened, all content remain marked as xxxxxxxx. This is needed as sometime Receiver may be projecting her/his screen to others and all will come to know for email if popup is displayed or receiver going through emails in inbox.

    May be some kind of option in email compose can help to…
