  1. Insert Email Letter Stationary Backgrounds to Outlook

    Please make Outlook more User Friendly

    Also, please have more pretty stationary email backgrounds in Outlook like IncrediMail has... IncrediMail is shutting down after 20 years and I have to find something to replace it.

  2. Enable the 'From' field in an OFT to be either blank or saved as a different email address

    It would be very useful when creating an Outlook template .OFT file, to be able to either leave the 'From' email address field blank, or save it as an email address of a shared mailbox. Currently when creating an OFT, if you fill in the desired email address (that you have permissions to send from) into the 'From' field, and save the OFT file and close it, when you open the OFT file again, the 'From' email address reverts to the account of whoever opens the OFT file from their Outlook client. If this isn't possible, even just being able…

    Would be great to be able to schedule 'online' time for Outlook. MyAnalytics suggests focussed windows for email but if you use Outlook for other reasons you need to keep it open. The ability to schedule when you are willing to receive new emails would sort this. You could even have exceptions?

  5. Add an x to clear the search area and return mail to standard view.

    Please make search better or return it to the previous version. At the current state there is no easy way to clear a search and return the mail to an unsearched state.

  7. Vertical scroll bar for Favorites

    Add a vertical scroll bar to the Favorites list, and make the divider between Favorites and other folders movable, so that we can give or or less room to Favorites.

  8. Add a feature to the inbox called "float to the top"

  9. Automated Follow-up on Feedback and Deliverables

    When I send an email to someone or multiple persons and ask questions or 'for something'.

    The built in intelligence will come back to me in a few days to say "you sent a communication x days ago with no response...would you like to follow up? ....Say yes... then a reminder email is automatically sent.

    Even better...the system already takes action to send a follow-up communication. A task is built in "To Do" or other areas that is tied together and tracking history and progress.

  10. Add 'do not reply to this email' option

    Would not it be fine to add this option so we could prevent people from replying to the emails which we would not like to have replied?

  12. 'In folder' shortcut for drag and drop

    When showing emails as Conversation, we can see other emails with the same Subject and the associated folder in which these emails are.

    Is it possible to enable a drag and drop function to this folder?

  13. Pin search filters

    Make email search filters (to, from, subject, body, attachments, etc) remain pinned to top of inbox. Currently, I need to add these filters everyday. Previously, these stayed pinned atop my inbox.

  16. 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.

  17. 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.

  19. 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.
