  1. Intelligent AutoCorrect

    When typing an email address on a new line, the AutoCorrect feature "start with capital" will replace the first letter by the a capital letter.

    firstname. => Firstname.

    An intelligent AutoCorrect could for example detect an e-mail-address and when continuing typing replaces the capital letter by a small one again.

    1) firstname.lastname => Firstname.lastname
    2) Firstname.lastname@domain.com => firstname.lastname@domain.com

    This could be based on regex - or to reach most users probably better via suggestions, such as options. E.g. "Exception for email-addresses" and further functions for pros that are familiar with regex.

  2. Wish there was an "For your awareness" rather than "cc"--

    I wish there was an option for addressees/invitees on email and calendar items that was "For Your Awareness" rather than "cc" indicating they are not expected to respond or attend, but for those situations when they need to be aware....the optional and required options are not as explicit

  4. Enable the 'From' field in an OFT to be either blank or saved as a different email address

    It would be very useful when creating an Outlook template .OFT file, to be able to either leave the 'From' email address field blank, or save it as an email address of a shared mailbox. Currently when creating an OFT, if you fill in the desired email address (that you have permissions to send from) into the 'From' field, and save the OFT file and close it, when you open the OFT file again, the 'From' email address reverts to the account of whoever opens the OFT file from their Outlook client. If this isn't possible, even just being able…

  5. Automatic Replies (Out of Office) by sender's timezone

    Allow for different out of office/automatic replies based on sender's timezone - will be very useful when on business travel.
    (Allow for "anyone NOT on selected timezone")

  6. In LotusNotes, I was able to customize reoccurring meetings before sending them out. Was able to change dates or create a series of dates.

    In LotusNotes, I was able to customize reoccurring meetings before sending them out. I have a monthly meeting that meets 2x a month on Wednesdays, but not always on the same Wednesdays. I was able to select which Wednesdays I wanted my meetings to fall. Then I would send it out to everyone.

  8. Prevent attachments with unsaved changes

    When attaching a file to a message, if the file is open on the PC and has unsaved changes, Outlook should generate a warning message to remind the user to save the file prior to attaching it.

  12. uncancel a meeting request

    It would be great if we had a way to "uncanel" a meeting request that was cancelled if you are the facilitator. Accidents do happen!

  14. When scheduling a recurring meeting give an option to schedule it on a specific working day, ie working day 3 of every month

    When scheduling a recurring meeting give an option to schedule it on a specific working day, ie working day 3 of every month. The current option only allows you to chose the 3rd of each month but this may fall on a weekend.

  15. Include calendars of other shared users in the search scope for the Advanced search in Outlook client

    I would like you to include calendars of other shared users in the search scope for the Advanced search in Outlook client, since we can only search in the users’ own calendar at the moment.

  16. Outlook Archiving Tool needs user-selectable functionality

    The Archive tool has two operational problems as far as I’m concerned:

    • It uses Modified Date rather than Sent/Received Date as the selection criterion and
    • It doesn’t Archive Flagged messages

    While these attributes might be desirable for some users, my researches suggest that there are many users who disagree.
    I would like to see user selectable options for archiving criteria.

  17. Organization level: Set meeting default to end meetings early

    At Google, all meetings default to 25/50 minutes instead of 30/60 minutes. We should allow the option for administrators to toggle their meetings to end early by default.
