  3. Option to repair Microsoft Outlook 2016 by right clicking the Outlook icon in the toolbar.

    Enable the option to Repair Outlook 2016 feature by right clicking the Outlook Icon in the Toolbar. That way when the program wont load and you keep getting the processing message for quite a long time, you can just right click the icon and outlook will diagnose and repair itself.

  4. Option to export and import email accounts and account settings in Microsoft Outlook 2016

    Option to export and import email accounts and settings including Server details and advanced settings to a file from Microsoft Outlook 2016.

    In Microsoft Outlook 2016 it would be beneficial if we are provided with an ability to export individual email account settings including name, email address, server information for incoming and outgoing, username, password and the advanced settings to a file so we can take a backup and use the same file in re-configuring the email account when troubleshooting issues related to Microsoft Outlook 2016. All that needs to be added is the email account password to complete the…

  5. Groups conversation inline thread reply layout

    It would be so much better if the Office 365 group conversation layout were that of a thread with inline replies, for example, I sometimes want to insert a reply right under an other colleagues message, and not at the very bottom of the conversation.

    That would make things much more helpful!

    The Reply button should perform this function as at the moment it is misleading one into thinking that it will reply to the conversation thread when in fact it just replies to the user himself.

    I had a rather embarrassing situation at work today because of this as…

  6. Change arrangement of Main folder and Sub folder in Microsoft Outlook 2016

    At present the Folders and Sub Folders are not well defined and visual experience can be enhanced by providing the following features:


    1. Arranging Main folder and Sub Folder so that they can be distinguished easily - At present Main folder and Sub Folder are closely aligned with very little difference that sets them apart visually. In order to make them visually different, the Sub folder shall be offset by 1 or 2 points from Main folder.


    2. Reducing unnecessary space between folders in the data files to make folder view look more comfortable and compact.


    3. Providing icon for folder and sub…

  8. Enable Categories for Email and Calendar Appointments to expand the categories or Different categories per occurrence of a series

    Enable Categories for Email and Calendar Appointments in Microsoft Outlook 2016 using more colors.

    Also, Be able to “Paint” categories…click an existing category and apply it to other emails. Also, have the option to expand the quick list of recently used categories to 30 or 50…this will save clicks as opposed to having to hit “All Categories” then scroll down the alphabetic list.

    Also, would be helpful to change category / coloration for just a single occurence in a series when that series has a different level of priority, topic, etc. Google Calendar enables this with coloration.

  9. Option of recalling an email in Microsoft Outlook 2016 for Mac

    An option to Recall an email sent from Microsoft Outlook 2016 for Mac would be beneficial. Microsoft Outlook 2016 for Windows has this function but it is not available in Microsoft Outlook 2016 for Mac. It would be helpful in cases in which important email is accidentally sent out to wrong people and we need to recall it.

  10. Option to apply rules that look for a specific person or group in the BCC of an incoming message in Microsoft Outlook 2016.

    When someone is on a distribution list that is Bcc'd often. Than, provide an ability to be able to create a rule that says "If I got this email because this group is in the bcc field, delete the message." That would be so helpful in outlook 2016.

  12. Option to propose a new meeting location in Microsoft Outlook 2016.

    It would be nice to have the ability to propose a new location for an Outlook calendar meeting similar to the "Propose new time" feature currently available in Microsoft Outlook 2016.

  14. Option of warning when Replying to All when the recipient is in BCC in Microsoft Outlook 2016

    Option to show some sort of warning to the individual who is already in BCC if they are trying to "Reply All" as it defeats the purpose of BCC and can be quite embarrassing not only for the individual replying to the email but also for the original sender when the respondent replies to all from a BCC. Also when I click on “Reply All”, my email id (sender’s id) appears in the recipient list. There should be a facility to disable this.

  16. Option to specify exact date and time for sending an email in Microsoft Outlook 2016.

    When we use the delayed emails feature for Outlook 2016, it has an option for not sending the email before a specified date. It'll be better if we can specify the exact date (and, if possible, time) on which to send an email. Or an option to automatically send recurrent emails at a specified frequency in Microsoft Outlook 2016 would be an added benefit.

  17. Improvement in Mail Merge Needed in Microsoft Outlook 2016

    Microsoft Outlook 2016 needs to have an improved Mail Merge providing an option to attach documents to any email and even customize the sender of the mail merge as needed without impacting message or the message format.

  18. Outlook New Item Alert window - design Mail Alerts window the same as Calendar/Task Alerts window

    Option to Make ' New Mail Alerts ' dialog box resizable in Microsoft Outlook 2016.

    Or design Mail Alerts window the same as Calendar/Task Alerts window to provide more functionality in managing the alerts and specifically to retain the unresolved alerts when Outlook is closed, either on purpose, accidentally or due to a problem that causes Outlook to restart. It would also be great to have the ability to resize all alerts windows and provide column headings with sort order function. However my primary request is to retain unresolved Mail alerts when Outlook is closed.

  19. Option to Customize the Office Applications themes independently.

    It would be nice if we could customize the color scheme / look and feel of the office apps independently of each other. I like my word in dark theme but One Note and Outlook in their respective colors. Now you have to choose one look wholesale for the whole system which seems strange.

    Also, please add a ‘Classic Office’ Theme to render all office products in their default themes from 2003/2007/2012.

  20. Exchange 2016 Public Folders Incorrect Permissions in Outlook 2016

    In Outlook 2016 (but not Outlook 2010) Public Folders that were migrated to Exchange 2016 from 2010 do not display the correct permissions. The "Default" permission overrides all other specific permissions on public folder.
