  8. Do not save sent items in delegate's mailbox when send as shared mailbox

    Currently all emails (including send as emails) sent from user mailbox will be saved to ‘Sent Items’ folder. But there is no option to exclude ‘send as emails’ from Sent Items folder. We do not want to save sent items in delegate's mailbox when sending as shared mailbox.


    Note: It is possible to set the registry key in this KB article or use PowerShell to configure which mailbox you want the Sent Items to be, https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/2843677/messages-sent-from-a-shared-mailbox-aren-t-saved-to-the-sent-items-folder-of-the-shared-mailbox-in-outlook.

    We are keeping this idea published in case there is additional feedback. If you would like the feature to work differently please leave…

  10. Add CC and BCC Fileds when Forwarding email

    When setting up Auto Forward emails in Outlook Desktop, there is no option to add people in CC or BCC. In office you need to add people in TO field who will perform the work or they are the intended recipient of the email. While you need to keep in loop your line managers who will be in CC. This option is just to clarify that who is the intended recipient of the email and who is in loop just for information. I have also discussed it in the following thread...

    Provide an UNDO feature for folders erased accidentally in Microsoft Outlook 2016 similar to other applications. Also making it applicable for all the components in Microsoft Outlook 2016 would be beneficial in case emails, contacts etc. are deleted or erased accidentally.

  15. Auto decline invites over specific existing meetings with a custom message response

    Provide a feature to customize meeting response options for Calendar events in Microsoft Outlook 2016 with options like I will call or I will join in person etc versus Accept.

    Also, I don’t want anyone to overbook certain existing meetings on my calendar. I want to auto decline any meeting request with custom message for each one of these. For example: I would want to say “no way I’ll move this existing meeting, please find another time” for some and “I’d rather not move my existing meeting, call me let’s discuss” for others

  19. "Move -> Other Folder" should default to correct email account

    When you right click on an email there is a menu item called “Move” which allows you to move the email to another folder. In that menu there is a button called “Other Folder” which opens a window that allows you to choose any folder.

    This window appears to open to the last folder you last selected, regardless of what email account you are in. This is annoying if you have multiple accounts setup in Outlook. For example, if I’m moving an email in my Work account but the last one I moved was in my Personal account then it…

  20. Dismiss meeting reminder when joining Skype for Business meeting

    When Outlook pops up a reminder window for a SfB meeting and I click "Join Online", Outlook should be smart enough to that I have acknowledged the reminder and therefore wish it to be dismissed. Why do I need to go back to the reminder window and hit "Dismiss" after I have joined the meeting?
