  3. Detect and warn user if e-mail may be going to the wrong recipient.

    Scan message for recipient's name ("Dear Name," or "Name,") and compare vs. the e-mail address(es) that are set to be sent to. It would be nice if Outlook could somehow warn you if it thinks you are about to send a message to the wrong person.

  5. Enable Custom Desktop notifications for sepecific folders

    We would like a way to be able to customize desktop notifications. It would be helpful to designate which folders in your account you would like a notification for.
    Example: we get hundreds of emails a day between the email group for the department, it would be helpful to only receive desktop notifications for emails sent directly to me as opposed to emails we are sent in a group.

  7. Block forwarding when the Encrypt button selected

    I would like to use regedit or a patch to block forwarding messages when the Encrypt button selected in Outlook. Or it would be great if users could choose options from the button. The Permissions button has been replaced with the Encrypt button and Encrypt button was the one which could block forwarding messages. But now it only encrypts the message itself and users can forward a message. Users still think the Encrypt button can block forwarding messages, so we are encountering the problem that people mistakenly forward messages.

  12. Signatur with attachments

    Englisch:
    Could it be possible to add attachments to the signature? Especially for companies where general terms and conditions have to be sent almost always. Templates are very cumbersome.
    German:
    Kann es bitte möglich sein, dass man Anhänge in die Signatur einbaut. Gerade für Firmen wo fast immer Allgemeine Geschäftsbedingungen mitgeschickt werden müssen. Vorlagen sind dabei sehr umständlich.

  15. Insert SnippingTool images directly to Outlook

    I would be great if I start a new mail message and under the ribbon 'Add Element' there would be a item 'Add from SnippingTool', and I can add images from SnippingTool directly in to my mail body or as attachment.

  17. Introduce the option''get notified'' for a general email address .

    Giving the real example:

    I work in a company where I have my own domain email address, but I also have access to the general '' sales@ '' address; we are a couple of people there and I would like to get notified when there's a new email received.

  18. Show folders with unread messages at the top of the list

    Allow user to sort folders so that folders with unread email appear before folders with no unread email. Alternatively, create a "Smart Favorites" setting that lets me choose whether a Favorite folder should always be shown in the Favorites section or only if it contains unread email.

    I have a lot of rules that filter bulk email into folders, but then sometimes I forget to scroll down to see new unread email.

  19. Mark an email like "Awaiting response" when it's sent

    This will allow us to remember which emails we are waiting for to be answered, and track them from the same email.

  20. Confirmation on more than X users on CC

    I think Outlook should ask for confirmation when a email is sent to more than five recipients on CC. It is very usual for Outlook users to make mistakes for distribution mails and put the recipient list in Carbon Copy instead of Blind Carbon Copy with the breach on Data Protection laws that this supposes.
