  1. I'd love to be able to add notes for myself to emails when I file them. Something that would not forward if I reply later.

    Something like sticky note that you could attach to an email, but would not forward with the email when you reply. (for user's eyes only).

    Would be especially helpful if I could attach relevant files when filing emails (w/o sending a new email) or attach/connect other email chains so I could easily keep all relevant information together.

  2. Sync the Outlook Add-in for OneNote with the OneNote app version from Microsoft Outlook 2016

    It is unfortunate to not be able to send an email using the one note add in outlook to the one note app notebooks. One Note 16 pops up and I no longer use those notebooks.

  4. Send to OneNote - should work with Public Folders

    The new Send to OneNote feature, that includes the automatic creation of a "Link to the Outlook Item, is a fantastic addition.
    However, the link will presumably only work for the original email recipient.
    We use the very efficient and powerful and never-to-be-lost Public Folders, for all our project emails so that everyone in the team can see the relevant emails without multiple copies having to be sent around (and many other advantages) etc., but the new Send to OneNote apparently does not work on Public Folder stored emails. What a pain.
    The combination of this automated hyperlink and linking…

  10. Provide an option to replace a contact's notes field with an embedded onenote page in all Outlook apps on all devices.

    Outlook.com and all major mobile devices presently crop contact notes fields down to 1024 characters while Outlook itself allows for notes fields of arbitrary length.

    This results in lost data when synchronizing to these devices.

    Replace the Outlook Contact Notes on all Outlook platforms with an embedded Onenote notebook page. (Outlook, Outlook.com, Outlook for Android and iOS, etc.)

    This will support cross-platform synchronized notes of arbitrarily length without risk of data loss, without placing extra strain on the outlook.com database servers. Presently the only service which offers large note synchronization is DejaOffice, and DejaOffice's sync with outlook is extremely unreliable.

  13. Business Contact Manager SBB files to Outlook 2016

    Found out that 8 years of BCM history literally unusable in Outlook 2016. To make matters worse, MSFT tech support uninstalled Outlook 2010 w/BCM; therefore, I have no recourse. Dead in the water. What?!? Serious breach of customer service. This should be an easy, no brainer, conversion to the new program. Thoughts???

  16. Anti-phishing email rule improvements - better message rule creation tool

    a Better method for creating message rules - one especially suited for anti-spam/anti-phishing is badly needed.
    1) let us drag & drop an email to a toolbar icon or somewhere that will automatically take the "offending" message and allow us to tailor a message rule based directly on the contents of that message - and then allow us to tailor a rule from there with the message data as default items.
    2) The main idea here is to make it quick & easy to VISUALLY create custom filters like: if it says it's from my friend "Joe Smith", but it's…
