  2. Better spam blocking

    Be able to block by entering key words in the subject. More effective that trying to block just the senders email address

  3. Auto complete using full contact list instead of just "recent contacts"

    When I'm writing an email, I would like to be able to type an email from my contacts into the "to" bar and have outlook autocomplete the email without me having to go to the contacts menu.

  4. 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.

  5. Bring back more contrast to the tabs please.

    Progressive versions of Office since Office 2010 have made it increasingly more difficult to discern between items on the ribbon. Office 2010 by far had the best UI and was the easiest to use. Please consider your customers before making un-necessary changes to something that was once great.

  7. A series of recurring past appointments should not be changed just because I change the end date or the number of appointments.

    Calendar is always full of recurring appointments. Often my clients need to change a single appointment to another day or to cancel it completely. They nearly always have a set amount of weeks in which their training lasts. Therefore, if a lesson is cancelled in advance, the total amount of appointments must remain the same but only the end date changes. Whenever I try to change the end date, the whole series must be reset and then past changes (such as changing a single appointment from a Tuesday to a Thursday) will be lost. Also, if I need to change…

  9. Provide meeting-finder feature for a bunch of availability request (aka doodle-feature ;)

    Please implement a feature to send participants a choice of different appointment availability time frames. So far external tools like Doodle are needed. Why not implement directly a smart solution into Outlook?

    Offer the requesting user, to choose different dates and times, to add them up into one request to participants. (similiar to your series function already, just to choose a bunch of flexibel dates instead of just serial behavior)

    the participants then should get all requested dates into their calendars (shown like non answered- dates yet) - when opening the request (no matter which of the single ones), offer…

  10. Undo Send (10 second delay before sending) like Office 365 version

    The online version of office 365 allows you to set a rule/setting that will allow you to undo a send for up to 10 seconds after hitting send. Please give that feature to the full version of Outlook.

  12. 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.

  13. Automatically Sync Outlook Address Book with Windows 10 People App.

  14. Outlook Meeting Response Option of "INFORMATION ONLY"

    Meetings as FYI Only -

    Please add a fourth meeting response option such as "Information Only" which automatically responds "Decline" but leaves the meeting info on your calendar. The meeting response would also automatically show the calendar as "FREE" with "No Reminder". This allows the user to change their response without having to sift through deleted emails or respond tentative leaving others to guess as to your meeting participation when you have no intention of going at all.

  15. Decline but not participating

    Today we can only chose from "Accept", "Tentative" or "Decline" when somebody propses or invites to a meeting. A lot of times you need to know about the meeting and get the meeting notes but not participate, for ex. for exacuative people, people in a high leadership role etc. My suggestion is that we have a "Decline not participating" option so that we still have the meeting in or calenders, get the meeting notes, updates for next meeting etc.

  18. Start appointments and meetings delayed

    Since Januar 2019 we have the calendar options to end an appointment early. It would be nice to also delay the start time by e.g. 5 minutes.

  19. Please highlight the day of the week in the calendar

    I would like the day of the week to be highlighted across the column. I would also like the hour to have an indicator line going across this hour through the days of the week.
