    Please add the option to save an attachment from outlook to onedrive. This should be similar to the option in Word 2016, where you can save to weblocations / onedrive.

  2. "Backspace" Shortcut Removal Option

    Would like to seen an option to disable the "Backspace" shortcut to Archive. Even though the Archive button and AutoArchive settings have been disabled via GPO, a user can still press backspace and archive an email to a folder specified using the Tools > Set Archive Folder option. The archive feature confuses users who are using Exchange Online Archiving solution.

    Solve the bug of emails filter for "attachment"
    the screenshot are available in this answer http://answers.microsoft.com/it-it/msoffice/forum/msofficeoutlook-msowinother/outlook-2016-home-and-business-filtri-ricerca/5bc4d0c5-1580-42f5-b8af-9d3faf7d8ce3

  7. Outlook Maximum Number of Folders

    The maximum number of folders in Outlook 2016 connected to O365 Exchange is currently limited to 500 for optimal performance. Users are able to continue creating folders and then face slowness and poor performance. So please consider the below features for future versions:

  8. Alarm when writing 'see attached' but forget to attach

    When sending someone an email writing 'see attached for..', it sometimes happens you forget to actually attach. I need an alarm when I send my mail that says ''We see you're writing 'see attached' but there is no attachement. Do you still want to send your email?''. Just as you get an alarm when you send someone an email without a subject.
