  2. It would be helpful to have instructions for "out of office".

    It would be helpful to have instructions for "out of office", assuming the feature is available in Outlook.

    I did try help but the help suggestions don't apply to Outlook, at least my version.

    I am surprised such a basic feature is lacking!

  3. Folder Options: Show total number of conversations in any given view in Microsoft Outlook 2016

    Currently in outlook folder properties you can choose to show the total number of items or the number of unread items in the folder. It would be really helpful to have an option to show the total number of conversations as this is often a better indicator how many things we have to deal with.

  4. What's new since I last checked my email

    I would like a view in Outlook that shows me everything that's come in since the last time I checked my email (on any of my devices). I would like to view these emails from oldest to newest. Now here's why. I'm a software product manager living in the Pacific Northwest and I work with multiple development teams in India. So, as I'm sleeping, I might get in 50-75 new emails overnight. This idea could also apply to days off, vacation, etc. By default, I have Outlook display my emails with the newest emails on top. When I wake up,…

  6. Option to disable auto-completion of hyperlinks when entering them

    When typing in a link such as http://www.example.com/1/2, it will auto-complete to any level lower than that if it is entered before for example http://www.example.com/1/2/3

  9. Change default settings of deletion of meetings requests from Enabled to Disabled

    Change default settings of deletion of meetings requests from Enabled to Disabled. I want to know where the meeting is quickly through my inbox instead of clicking on my calendar etc.

  10. show the name of the person behind a recived email instead of showing the date and hour for the time of reciving the email

    when you get a lot of emails every day it is very helpfull to be able to sort them quickly by looking at the name of the sender. It is not helpfull to only see the date and hour for recieving the email as you do with outlook 16 then you have to open every single email before deleting it

  11. Make a draft easily retrievable

    If I switch to look for some related info I lose the draft, and have to do a search of all mailboxes to find it - and it's still unclear as to where it's been stored.

  12. Bring back the horizontal split window bar

    In previous versions of Outlook (I believe it was still there in 2010), when composing an email, there was a little line above the vertical scroll bar that you could drag down to activate the split window feature. This would divide your editing area into a top and bottom section and allow you to compose in the top half while you view further down the email in the bottom section. Incidentally, this feature is still available in Word, although it was removed from the top of the vertical scroll bar and relegated to a button on the View toolbar of…

  13. Include "Shared with Me" under browse web locations

    In Outlook with Office 365, there are options to share links to files saved in OneDrive or SharePoint. However, if someone has shared a file with you from their own OneDrive, there is no option to send the link back to them even if you have permission to the file. By adding "Shared with Me" as a location to search, we would have the ability to share OneDrive file links directly through Outlook for interoffice collaboration.

  16. How about you have the signature line automatically appear

    When using this new stupid "Share" option on excel, I have to click on how I want to share the information. When I select attachment, it does attach the file to an email, however now I have to insert my signature each time. To the developers... "If it's not broke, don't fix it" seriously....

  17. fix outlook freeze bug when multiple profiles are active

    Outlook freezes when you have more than one profile active on your computer and a second user opens outlook, the client freezes when you switch back to the first profile.

    This bug has been active for over a year. A common scenario with multiple users using the same computer, and a shame that a great program like outlook is broken like this.

  18. Provide an option to update the addressees to update the addressees of a message without having to pop-out the message

    In conversational mode, you can quickly reply to others in a mail thread. From within this mode you cannot update the addressees of the reply. Sometimes you want to add or remove an addressee. At this moment that means you have to pop-out the message to a new window to be able to do that.
    Pleas add an option to do this from within conversational mode.
