  1. Include Additional theme options in order to provide a more pleasing color scheme

    The provided color schemes make it very difficult to distinguish folders

  3. Email Signature Sync across devices

    It would be great if Outlook sync'd your email signature across multiple devices so that you only have to set or update it once.

  4. Provide ability to change the color of the reading pane or set background and text color for the reading pane

    The dark theme is great in Outlook, however the inability to change the background and text color of the reading pane make it almost painful.

    It would be fantastic to have the ability to configure the default CSS for the reading pain and text/html therein.

  5. Get rid of yellow background highlight on flagged messages or allow it to be disabled

    The new Outlook update puts a yellow background highlight on flagged messages. It is awful to look at an inbox full of yellow highlights. Please remove this highlighting or allow it to be disabled.

  10. Outlook should remember its windows sizes and positions

    When I open a new Windows inside Outlook for e.g. the Calendar or Tasks, pick a position for it and resize it according to my needs, it should be saved, so once those windows are closed and then reopened, I don't need to do this again.

    An older Office Version had this feature, but it seems to have been removed.

    Some details on this can be found here, please read the last statement from Jennifer from Microsoft.

  11. Provide an option or feature to color code different email accounts in Microsoft Outlook 2016

    Provide an option or feature to color code different email accounts in Microsoft Outlook 2016. In WIndows Live, we use to be able to color code the different email accounts we had on the desktop version. I want the same ability for the outlook desktop version.

  12. Sort by @-mentions

    It would be great if we had the ability to sort for Mentions, similar to Categories, E-mails with @ mentions would be moved to the top of the folder.

  13. The ribbion tool bar

    The ribbon tool bar is too large and taking up too much of my screen. Also the icons on the ribbon bar are too large. The colour range does not have enough choice. The older ribbon bar was much better on office 2010 and has gone south in my opinion. I hate the new ribbon bar and the feel of the system. The system is not an improvement over office 2010

  14. The "Keyboard Shortcuts: Customize Button" in Outlook 2016

    Office programs allow users to customize keyboard shortcuts in the "Customize the Ribbon" dialog window. Why doesn't Outlook? The "Keyboard Shortcuts: Customize" button is missing.

  15. Improve synchronization of junk email settings between app and web interface

    Please improve the synchronization between the outlook app and the web interface regarding junk handling.

    Or at least improve the documentation/information about the possible problems that can arise due to missing synchronization.

    Recently, I have become aware that there are two places were junk email settings can be set, in the web interface and in the outlook app. And more importantly, that these two places have nothing to do with each other! You can add or remove accounts from the safe sender list in one place, but it does not affect the settings on the other place.

    I also understand…

  16. Black screen privacy button on task bar - toggle on and toggle off

    Add a feature which would allow users to click a button on the task bar to go to a black “privacy” screen. The suggestion is to turn the screen black except the task bar at the bottom. Then you can click the button to unveil your screen and return to your work.

  20. Add an option to add multiple / change the signature based on the theme someone is using.

    Many company's use signatures in their emails. Most of these signatures have an image and some text. When designing these most people will only check if looks great on white mode. But when you have darkmode on, it doesn't look so good anymore.
