  1. Enable back "Always prompt for logon credentials" for Outlook client/email

    Enable back "Always prompt for logon credentials" for Outlook client/email

    Since it has been grayed out and not able to change. Users should have that option due to security risks when using office and outlook.

    Make it possible to prompt for user credentials every time or not

  3. 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.

    add a quick link under the "delay delivery" menu to "send message at 8 AM the following business day" so that I don't have to configure every email I am sending to my team over the weekend.

  8. 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.

  9. 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.

  12. Customize Desktop notification appearance in Microsoft Outlook

    Earlier version of Outlook has Desktop notification setting which allows us to change transparency and location of desktop alert. Outlook 2016 does not have that feature. Current desktop alert is not transparent at all and it is in a fixed place which is not user friendly since we huge number of emails in a day. Please allow us to customise the desktop alert.

  13. Add search bar in customize ribbon to ease command findings

    Subject says it all. This feature is getting popularity in numerous applications. It would help/ease to locate commands we want to add to the customized ribbons. Much more useful than the "popular commands" preselections.

  15. 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.

  19. Automatically end a Teams or Skype meeting after specified duration

    Participants tend to unnecessarily prolong Teams/Skype meetings. Meeting should automatically end after duration and preferably display a time minder (reminder) maybe 5 minutes to end of meeting allocated time. The 5 minutes at the end will allow moderator to wrap up.
