  1. Outlook Meeting Response Option of "INFORMATION ONLY"

    Meetings as FYI Only -

    Please add a fourth meeting response option such as "Information Only" which automatically responds "Decline" but leaves the meeting info on your calendar. The meeting response would also automatically show the calendar as "FREE" with "No Reminder". This allows the user to change their response without having to sift through deleted emails or respond tentative leaving others to guess as to your meeting participation when you have no intention of going at all.

  6. outlook configuration sync across machines

    Using Office 365 and desktop Outlook, sync the configuration of Outlook for any machine I run it on. Carry through Office 365 my Outlook settings for appearance (message header display, etc.) and client-side rules and folder expire policies. Also add calendar color sync function across devices and for all the protocols. Also t would be great to have a feature where Calendars could synchronized without having to send event invites to different Outlook accounts.

  7. Automatically replace recipient when replying to emails from Sent folder

    Scenario:

    We want to follow up on an email I already sent. I click the message in my SENT folder and then "Reply." I end up sending a message to myself.

    Some competitor products that shall not be named automatically replace the recipient in this scenario with the recipient of the original email, to avoid the awkward situation of replying to myself.

  8. A series of recurring past appointments should not be changed just because I change the end date or the number of appointments.

    Calendar is always full of recurring appointments. Often my clients need to change a single appointment to another day or to cancel it completely. They nearly always have a set amount of weeks in which their training lasts. Therefore, if a lesson is cancelled in advance, the total amount of appointments must remain the same but only the end date changes. Whenever I try to change the end date, the whole series must be reset and then past changes (such as changing a single appointment from a Tuesday to a Thursday) will be lost. Also, if I need to change…

  9. Make GIF's available for Outlook 2007 to 2016!

    I can't see pictures, GIF's on my Outlook from 2007 to 2016. It'd be great for everyone to experience this awesome feature. Even Microsoft has use them and it's sad that I need to send it to other email clients to see it.

  10. Don't prompt to save changes when closing a calendar item that has not been edited in Microsoft Outlook 2016

    Don't prompt to save changes when closing a calendar item that has not been edited in Microsoft Outlook 2016. This can block shut-down or restart of the computer as Microsoft Outlook 2016 won't close until those prompts are answered.

  14. Send meeting updates only to those who accepted?

    Even in Outlook 2016, it's still only possible to send meeting updates to -all- recipients but much more logical and user friendly is the default option to only send to ricipients who accepted the meeting request; or at least skip those who already declined the meeting request. Please include as default feature.

  19. email address

    Always show the full email address of a sender in the view pane. This is a major security risk that the email address of a sender is hidden and requires several clicks to view. Default should always be to show the full sender email address.

  20. Solution for Synchronization Problem - Possibility for manual matching of IMAP folders

    The possibility to correct the matching of IMAP folders, like in Outlook 2007 should be added.

    That means it should be possible to change the settings for the folders were the Sent and Deleted items should be stored.

    This is a serious problem in the German Outlook version (17 votes in microsoft comunnity): Due to wrong matching the Synchronization does not work correct. E.g. Outlook stores the sent email in a folder named "Gesendete Elemente" (sent items) and the email provider expects "sent".

    See discussion:
