  1. enabling serach button to email attachemnt

    when creating new mail and in need to attach a previous mail, please enable the option to search for this previous mail after clicking the attachment button and choosing email attachment. it will be much more convenient to search for the mail after clicking the attachment button and not preparing/searching the mail beforehand.
    Also, the window opened for choosing the attachment is quite small, please enlarge it. thanks!

  2. Capital Aplhabets Vs Small Aplhabets with single click

    Current: After typing any word or statement user realise that they want to change the alphabets from Capital to Small letters or vice versa, they have to delete everything they typed and then re-type.

    New Proposed Idea: After tying statement or word user should select the statement or word and then hit Caps Lock button to change the alphabets from Capital to Small or Small to Capital letters.

    This idea will save lots of people time and same can be implemented on Outlooks applications.

  4. 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.

  6. 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.

  8. 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"…

  9. 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.

  10. 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…

  11. 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.

  13. Allow to change colour for inline comments only

    Now user is enabled only to change the text style for replys in MS Outlook, but not only for inline comments. It would be a wonderful option to choose a separate style for replays and for inline comments as I would like to keep a standard style for general replays and choose a different coloured text for inline comments (to be separated in the previous e-mail).

  17. 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…

  19. 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.
