  2. 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.

  3. 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…

  7. 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.

  8. Provide a feature to create Temporary rules in Microsoft Outlook

    A feature to create temporary rules, i.e., a rule which will only be in effect for the following day/week, and then gets automatically deleted/disabled.

    The specific scenario I have in mind is for managing email threads. I could create a rule such that, until end-of-day/week, emails from that thread will automatically go into a specific folder. Many threads don't last so long that I want to create a permanent rule, since I don't want to deal with managing deprecated rules later, and if a thread does last long enough to outlast the rule, either I need to catch up or…

  11. 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.

  13. Provide an option to change the default pane that Outlook opens on (e.g., change default from Email to Calendar)

    I spend a lot of time randomized by email, so I've started scheduling two 30-minute blocks to check email every day. However, Outlook still opens on Email by default, which can be distracting if I'm just trying to check my Calendar. Being able to set the default pane to the Calendar would help me stay focused and productive.

  14. Please add [Specific User] in the shared link setting of OneDrive for Business to the [Change Permissions] menu.

  15. Fix Automatic Replies from Changing Pasted Text to Images

    Currently if you paste text from OneNote into Outlook's Automatic Replies text box, it will paste the text as an image file instead of text. Please fix this bug to make Microsoft products work better together! Currently you have to paste text from OneNote to Notepad and again to Outlook to prevent this.

  16. Provide a feature of main folder Locking in Microsoft Outlook 2016

    Some people may have a lot of sub-folders within a folder on the left side column. It would be handy if the main folder could be locked to the underside of the line that separates 'Favorites' with the folders beneath. Why, because when you need to scroll down to the last sub folder for example, you need to scroll all the way back up to be able to close the main folder, thus hiding all the sub folders. So, instead of scrolling, if the main folder heading is locked and doesn't disappear when scrolling it would be much easier to…

  18. 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.

  20. Ability to add a custom mandatory field to emails while sending them.

    There should be an option to add a custom mandatory field (similar to how the "To" field is mandatory). Reason for this is that in a support based role, it would be great if we could add a Ticket Reference/Work Item number into the mandatory field, which prompts me to enter this before sending any email. This means that we can always track the email chains by ensuring we forced to enter this information. Also, if this custom field can be part of the automated search function.
