  2. Sort by From - Selected name/email moves to bottom of screen instead of top

    In previous versions of Outlook, if I select an email, and sort by From, the selected name & email would appear at the top of the list.

    Now (Outlook 2016), the selected name/email goes to bottom of list, which is strange.

    Try it out yourself.. Is this by design ? Can it be fixed ?

  3. Check that the date in the email actually exists.

    Many times people put the day of the week and the date together in their email but they get them wrong. For example, Thursday, the 30th of June doesn't exist in either 2017 or 2018. Could you pop a window that the date entered doesn't make sense. Or maybe even tell the user that the next June 30 on a Thursday is 2021 and it would be helpful to add the year on your email for clarity sake :-)

  4. Provide an option to enable Windows Hello to control e-mails to be read and sent in Microsoft Outlook 2016 for enhanced security.

    Provide an option to enable Windows Hello to control e-mails to be read and sent in Microsoft Outlook 2016 for enhanced security. It would prevent unauthorized individuals to read and/or send e-mails from an Outlook account and would be more secure.

  7. Provide an option to make emails moved to tasks more easy and easily noticeable in Microsoft Outlook 2016

    Provide an option to make emails moved to tasks more easy and easily noticeable in Microsoft Outlook 2016.

    As tasks work great in a way to manage your work but they are immensely painful to be located in the form of email later after the task is completed/deleted as when you move an email to tasks it is archived/deleted from inbox.

  9. Provide an option to display more addresses at the top of the received emails replacing "+NUMBER" in Microsoft Outlook 2016

    Provide an option to display more addresses at the top of the received emails replacing "+NUMBER" in Microsoft Outlook 2016. Previous versions of Outlook showed three lines of addressees. That was pretty good. I would like that feature to be restored.

  11. Provide an option to dock or pin expanded menus into email pane in Microsoft Outlook 2016

    Provide an option to dock or pin expanded menus into email pane in Microsoft Outlook 2016 such as "basic test" to the right side of an email draft. Word and Excel do this. The Outlook experience is such that we have to go to the menu bar and click the expand menu button each time I want to do advanced text formatting. We would like to be able to leave it open or float it to the side until we close/send the email.

  12. Adding a feature of contact item to show the Contact list which this item belongs to in Outlook client

    I would like you to add the feature of contact item to show the Contact list which each item is included in Outlook client.

    Although this feature is available in Outlook on the web, some of our tenant users use only Outlook client.

    This feedback is based on a customer voice from support SR.

  13. Provide an option to Print email without disclaimer in Microsoft Outlook 2016

    Provide an option to Print email without disclaimer in Microsoft Outlook 2016. These days disclaimers are often longer than the message, printing them is waste of paper and damage our planet.

  14. In Outlook 2016 provide separate archive options for Focused inbox from the Other tab

    Prior to "focused" inbox change "other" email was moved to the clutter folder. I could specify different archive options for each folder separately. Now with the "focused" and "other" tabs the messages are all still in the inbox and the archive options for the inbox folder apply to all of them. I need separate archive criteria for "focused" and "other"

  15. Provide an option to search either Focused or Other Inbox in Microsoft Outlook 2016

    Provide an option search either Focused or Other Inbox in Microsoft Outlook 2016. With the prior use of moving messages to the clutter folder searching the inbox was not a problem.

  17. A 'thumbs up' email acknowledgment response option

    Thumbs up flash response to enterprise emails instead of sending an email response that says "ok" or "thank you" or "I agree". It could be like the recipient attaching a flag to a rcv'd msg and the sender seeing that flag. This will cut down on storage costs and email noise.
