  1. Reminder to attach the file you promised in the email

    Often, people forget to attach the document that they promised in the email. They then send a new email with the line 'uups, the usual mistake' and with the document attached.

    This could be avoided if Outlook reminded you to attach a file. For instance, outlook could scan for words like 'attach' and similar, and when detecting a word but no attachment would prompt a pop-up similar to when sending a meeting invite when there is no subject.

    Another problem is that the new email with the attachment creates a new thread, so confusion arise on a) which to respond…

  6. Insert Email Letter Stationary Backgrounds to Outlook

    Please make Outlook more User Friendly

    Also, please have more pretty stationary email backgrounds in Outlook like IncrediMail has... IncrediMail is shutting down after 20 years and I have to find something to replace it.

  7. Add a quarantine button to view held messages

    Please add a button in Outlook that will either open the user's quarantine folder at https://protection.office.com/quarantine in browser OR preferably inside Outlook. Since there is only one daily quarantine email and it's in the middle of the night, my users aren't checking it. I really want to encourage users to check quarantine for spam.

    It would also be very helpful if the button showed the current count of quarantined messages.

  9. Add 'do not reply to this email' option

    Would not it be fine to add this option so we could prevent people from replying to the emails which we would not like to have replied?

  10. Prompt if subject is missing after email is saved as a draft

    If you save an email without a subject in a draft, you won't get a prompt indicating that there is no subject when you finally send it.

  11. add option 'save and erase all attachments'; names of all erased attachments, time stamp, username added below email text

    add option 'save and erase all attachments'
    add names of all erased attachments, erasing time stamp, and username ("erased by ...") below email text in tt text style

    to keep pst clean and data on SSD, many users do this manually: first saving, then erasing, which is terrible waste of time

    this feature is wished from thousands of users changing from Lotus, which worked like that all the time ...

    Thanks!

  12. Mark delayed emails in Outbox with the time it will be sent in Microsoft Outlook 2016

    When you delay an email there I no way to see what time it is set to send. In the outbox folder the pending email should say what time it will be sent. Also, it would be helpful to see easily delay an email versus having to go through the options tab. A confirmation email once sent would be a useful option.

  13. Embed Office Form in the Outlook E-mail

    Embed Office Form in the Outlook E-mail so that when users receive the e-mail, they will not have a second thought to click on the survey link, they will already see that there are only a few and easy-to-answer questions in the survey through the body of the e-mail, and answer it right away because the embedded form is interactive already.

    Advantage: Prevent users from parking the survey then forget that it's there because of the low priority. Presenters can get enough feedbacks through the survey.

  17. Email Report

    Be able to print an email report to track and discuss correspondences between people. Sometimes we need backup and emails to provide that and it would be easier to have a report that shows the date, time, subject and if we needed it to have an option to print all emails and attachments as required for your litigation.

  19. Not Required CC

    This would be an additional line to be added, the people that sit in Not Required CC are those that still need to see and know the information, but do not need to be kept on the email chain if it then continues on.
    I.e. You are adding a new product to your line, "To" & "CC" would remain the same but then the people the need the information to update systems but then don't need to see all the extended questions and details on how the product operates would be Not Required CC so that after the first reply…

  20. Allow mark as unread while still reading, show correct read/unread state

    If I get a new mail, look at it quickly, and them move off of it, then it is marked as "read." I know this will happen, and since I have not really "read" the email, I want to leave it marked as unread. There's no way to do this. Instead, I have to move the cursor off the email and then go back to it to mark it as unread.

    Marking as unread while you're reading is a feature found in other email clients eg. gmail.

    Also, when you're reading the email for the first time, its title in…
