  1. Provide option to suppress the dialog box

    Provide an option to suppress the dialog box described below

    Office Insider Version 1805 (Build 9327.2006 Click-to-Run) {32 Bit} on x64 W10 Insider 17661.1001

    Each time I start Outlook a dialog box pops up asking me to log into a work or school account. I have neither, so this is an annoyance. Clicking on the red X cancels it, without any apparent ill effect. I haven't found an option to turn it off. This dialog only appears in Outlook, not Excel, Powerpoint, Publisher or Word.

  2. recent people

    Recent people list is limited to 5 entries which are not the most used or most recent.

    Allow to search or expand when keep typing to find the ones that you have actually sent to e-mails recently.

  3. Please change default cache period to all

    Currently outlook exchange cache mode is set to one year and people who are not aware of this setting are thinking that they lost the old email ,it would be really good if it is set to all by default.

  4. Office 365 licencing/security bug

    When you convert a Office 365 licenced Mailbox with preconfigured Outlook client and mobile devices into a Shared Mailbox, the preconfigured Outlook client and mobile devices continue to receive and send emails. Even after revoking the licences from the converted account, the Outlook client and Mobile device continue to work without problem. Even resetting the password no longer revokes access. New configurations cannot be established, but old ones remain active. This presents a problem for me as this was our decommission process for ex staff. Only recently discovered that any personal devices they had kept access to the company data.…

  5. Attachments

    Please allow an option to set a default folder or location to locate files for attachments. The setup you have now is useless and frustrating, to say the least. I can see how it could be helpful to some customers, but certainly not all. Thanks!

  6. Which item in my inbox is selected?

    I notice I'm regularly deleted the wrong email from my inbox listing. There can be 2 email items shaded blue, slightly different shades to my eyes. When I see them side by side I can pick out the difference. Turns out one is selected, and other just where the cursor happens to be. I find myself hitting delete and the one I think is selected stays there... and I have to scroll up and down or look in trash to figure out what really got deleted. As far as I can tell, there's no particular benefit to highlighting the line…

  11. Sending a formatted email in Outlook to an Apple computer

    I am trying to send an invitation to a large group of people. Some have Apple computers. The invitation is formatted with the first part left justified. The remainder of the message is centered. When people with Apple computers receive it, the message is all left justified.

    A friend with an Apple formatted the same message to look like a banner and can send it to my computer, but I can't send it to Apple users.
    I have spent two days talking to a Microsoft Tech and she concluded that there is no solution. Why? Please fix this.

  13. Displaying your latest reply when you click on a recent inbox message

    It would be nice if your latest reply was shown automatically in the conversation strand. Or even if there was just an option to show it or not in the settings.

  14. Ability to use popup dialogue on search to filter by FROM, SUBJECT etc. appears to have disappeared

    Previous version of Outlook allowed to hit the down arrow and select From, To, Subject etc on search. New version does not appear to have this and it's absence is very annoying

  15. I wish a working archiving

    I wish a working archiving:
    Emails move from the Outbox with certain words in the subject to another folder.
    Recycle bin, empty messages after time.
    Delete messages by time in a specific folder.

  16. Remove the title (Mr./Mrs.) from the Auto Fill in the To:/CC:/BCC: cells when typing a person's name.

    When I add an email address to the To:/CC:/BCC: cells using the address book it lists a name and address as follows:

    Joe Smith <Joe@Smith.com>

    When I type the name using the Auto-Fill option in To:/CC:/BCC: cells it adds the title to the name:

    Mr. Joe Smith <Joe@Smith.com>

    It never added the title in Outlook 2010.

    Please remove the title from the Auto-Fill option.

  17. Fix the "Who is" behavior

    When you right-click a hyperlinked email address in the body of a message and choose "Who Is", the lookup does not function as expected. For instance if you are hovering over the domain portion of the message, the lookup will look for addresses in the organization with a string matching to the LEFT of the @ symbol.

    Here is a Spiceworks thread where I detailed it a bit more: https://community.spiceworks.com/topic/2130358-outlook-who-is-lookup?page=1#entry-7695165
