  1. Provide an option to create and save a template of emails in Microsoft Outlook 2016

    Provide an option to create and save a template folder that can be used to save frequently used e-mails(like emails containing quotes) as template. If needed, you go to your template folder and click on the specific email to send the e-mail off every month after updating it. This saves time and is more productive.

    Or incorporate email templates to match more like Word templates. This would include the developer tab options such as fallible fields, drop downs, and maybe auto fill contact info.

    Also include a personal save location for outlook templates like in word so you can set…

  6. Option to Pin Time Zones corresponding to the Event in Calendar in Microsoft Outlook 2016

    Please provide an option to pin the Time Zones fields corresponding to the event or task to the Appointment Inspector window in Microsoft Outlook 2016. The time zones feature is a great way to make sure we have the right time however as of now it's an unnecessary extra step to turn them on each time.

    Or, set a recurring appointment to start at 2:00 PM every Friday (for example), and it will alert the user at 2:00PM of his/her location. Means it will alert everyone at different moments, but at the “same” local time.

  9. Monogram or watermark for legitimate internal emails.

    Monogram or watermark should be added below the signature for legitimate internal emails so that end users can recognize whether it is from a legitimate co-worker or employee of the same company.

  13. Fix the Home > Filter Email > Unread filter

    The Unread filter doesn't work. It puts "isread:no" into the search box, but that's not the right command (should be "read:no"). Also, when using "read:no", Outlook does not respect the Mark As Read When Selection Changes setting as of 6/13/16, for me. It was working before the last update. I don't want the emails to be marked read unless I manually do it, Outlook is marking them when the selection changes.. even though it's disabled, and it doesn't do it when no filter is applied.

  15. @-Mention formatting

    Love the new @-mentions idea.

    For better visual discovery on the recipient end, how about a formatting option to configure how @-mentions directed at me will appear in my reader? Maybe when I'm mentioned, I'd like to see my name in style font point size+5, lime green, bold, so that it stands out in my reader.

  19. Provide an option to delay email communication in Microsoft Outlook 2016

    An option to delay all emails from actually being sent for a given amount of time can be beneficial in certain scenarios. An additional option to disable the delayed delivery set for all the emails for a specific email message can prove more productive. Also if that option can be applied to meetings as well that would provide additional control how the meetings are conducted. An option in the “SEND“ for “send later”, that will pop up a window asking you when (time and date) because the way it is now (Delay Delivery in the Options) is not the most…
