  1. Check that the date in the email actually exists.

    Many times people put the day of the week and the date together in their email but they get them wrong. For example, Thursday, the 30th of June doesn't exist in either 2017 or 2018. Could you pop a window that the date entered doesn't make sense. Or maybe even tell the user that the next June 30 on a Thursday is 2021 and it would be helpful to add the year on your email for clarity sake :-)

  2. Easier people search in draft emails

    Sometimes you are looking for a persons name (e.g. exact spelling) for an email. Most people use the to or cc line to autocomplete but that has the problem that it does not match the intent and sometimes the email gets accidentally sent to them as well. There should be something analogous to @name that lets you refer to the person without adding them to the to line.

  3. Provide a setting of "Not from sender" when creating rules in Microsoft Outlook 2016

  5. Safety tips need to be rethought in the Outlook client

    Safety tips currently appear within the body of the message. This makes it easy to imagine that a malicious user will simply format the body of a message to appear to have a safety tip, and phish the user to a supposedly 'safe' site that is actually malicious. Please consider moving the safety tips to a protected area and/or removing all links from the tip itself.

  6. add alt sign in options to "Sign In" "Sorry, but we're having trouble signing you in. We received a bad request."

    instead of just posting a message, when having trouble signing in, offer an option to retype your login / password, or anything besides the message "The server has terminated the request due to excessive request rate. Please wait a few seconds and try again."

  7. Notify users when a message with a blocked attachment type (like XML) will not be delivered

    When an attachment prevents the message from being delivered, such as attaching an XML file, the sender should be notified with a message that says "You cannot send this kind of attachment, please remove the attachment and try sending the message again"

  9. Connect account to SharePoint with different Site Collections

    In every Office application you can connect to Office 365 SharePoint to set it up as save and open location for documents. The problem however is that it will allways redirect you to the root site collection. It would be great to choose which sitecollection would be connection. Preferably setting this option for a group of users so we don't have to bother them with extra instructions on how to configure there office apps.

  10. Provide a feature to Include option for consecutive replies to stack in Conversation view in Microsoft Outlook 2016

    Provide a feature to Include option for consecutive replies to stack in Conversation view in Microsoft Outlook 2016 rather than consolidating. There should be an option to make these stack instead of consolidating so you don't need to un-check the flag in order view the first message by itself.

    Provide an option to move messages based on Age in Microsoft Outlook 2016 rather than date for easier management of an email for reference. Currently you can archive emails or move emails and it would be beneficial to make the rule to move any email based on time period to a specified folder.
