  1. Provide a simple way to deactivate smart lookup. It is an extremely annoying feaure.

    The smart lookup feature often activates without my asking it to causing me to waste considerable time. Even better - let's admit smart lookup is a bad idea, and simply remove it from Office.

  2. Allow me to default new emails into a new window rather than a tab

    Now that I have tabs, I literally have to pull out every email into its own window. Please allow me to default to new windows, so I can easily refer to my outlook inbox while drafting an email.

  3. Add support for numbered lists and bullet lists that are NOT indented.

    As far as I can tell, all lists (numbered and bullet styles) are always indented and I believe outline formats are also. I would like to utilize lists and outlines that are NOT indented. In the past, I have avoided using Word and Outlook for this reason. Now that I am forced to use these I am stuck with indented lists. In previous industries I have worked we never, ever indented anything and that is my preference. Please allow this option.

  4. OUtlook 2016 problem with Online.nl setup client in combination with Ziggo.nl client

    I have configured my Outlook 2016 (imap) succesfully account for provider Ziggo.nl. That's working.
    However it's not possible to add a new account for my other provider Online.nl
    It requires incoming: imap, 143 en no SSL, so everything else on "none"
    outgoing: smtp, 25, and everything else on "none.
    When trying to add the account I get the message that's "It's not possible to check the smtp server because of an invaluable encryption method. "
    I can't check any other settings, because Outlook 2016 won't let me add my account.
    In Office 2010 there was the possibility to change the…

  6. Auto-reconnect to Office365 after warning of security issue

    Outlook client for Office365:


    • Normally running

    • Connect to guest Wifi. Outlook comes up a security prompt because wifi has login page.

    • User says No - don't ignore security warning.

    Great at this point.


    • User logs into Wifi portal and goes online

    • Outlook never seems to recover... have to close it and reopen it before mail works again.

    Suggestion: Try and connect later when wifi has connected fully.

  7. "recent people"

    The new auto-complete and recent people should look and function more like the old auto-complete. Why limit it at 5 entries? Add the scroll bar back in and allow filtering on first and last names.

  8. My idea is for "People Pane" (Microsoft Outlook) to work. It has not been working for a long time.

    In Outlook when you choose People pane you should see related emails, etc. Instead of a blank space.

  12. Show the number of members of a distribution list to make the sender re-think

    Please show behind all internal distribution lists used when creating an email how many employees are behind it

    I typically get 10+ emails a day because the sender does not know his email will go 250+ people. If he/she knew, he would probably not use such a large distribution list

    sorry if this already exists - 20+ pages of hits for
    Show the number of members of a distribution list
    and nothing relevant on the first 2 pages

  17. Can't I just log in one time?

    Windows security keeps asking for my password. I hate it. I have to focus. I can't be distracted by this every 5 minutes. I understand security, but I haven't left my desk, which is in a private room, that no one else has access to. Come on guys.

  19. disable mailbox

    Allow to disable updates on mailboxes that have been delegated to you when on the road.
    In my job I have many delegated mailboxes, and every automatic updates takes ages when the connection is poor (and expensive)

  20. Cambiar asuntos masivos

    En Outlook seria interesante poder cambiar masivamente los asuntos de varios correos a la vez, ya que en la empresa cambiamos asuntos de un hilo masivamente y eso uno a uno es mucho trabajo, y es necesario para seguir bien los hilos.
