Pin or Stick important emails at the top of your Inbox
Option to be able to pin or stick important emails at the top of your inbox regardless of the date and time they were received when sorted by date. Also consider this scenario: Option to be able to pin someone automatically when we reply or send new mail.
We PIN all the “must” people in the CC so it will save our time in putting all the people in the CC every time we send mail. Plus, since there are a lot of “must” people to be filled out in CC, there may be some mistake to not include some people. We would like to avoid such problem.
Hello everyone and thank you for taking the time to request this feature. As part of our investigation on adding this capability, we ask that you please help us gather additional information on how you use Pin. This helps us to prioritize and design the feature to be exactly what you need to get more done!

The website version has this, there's really no reason for the desktop version to not.

There should be an option to star important e-mails. This feature is available in Gmail and Yahoo e-mail only and not in Hotmail.
Enable a note or Post it to be added to an email or calendar item so you can keep track of what has happened to it without having to log it elsewhere.
Attach file option used to give option to "insert as text". For some reason this version of outlook does not allow for that.
In my job we have frequently asked questions which we have text for, stored on our shared filespace so that there's a single file to update and multiple staff can make use of it.
Please bring it back!
Adding a feature in outlook for messages where you can add a note to the message you are sending or receiving for follow-up, mark it visible or private.
This will allow you to find a message already sent, and have notes attached to it to see where you left off in the message, or tasks involved for the message.
On your webmail for Outlook we can pin e-mails to top, however in your application you can not and they go back to original area. Why not make Web base and Application similar with same features. I really like to pin certain e-mails and in the application I like the conditional format of making certain people color in my E-mail.

I want to pin my e-mails so that I can always refer back to the e-mail without searching back old e-mails.
Seriously, it's been forever....just a click away from having the pin feature. How simple is it to program these things. There are too many differences between the online version and the desktop version. My folders aren't there, it's not as easy to get to options, signatures, etc. Maybe by the time I retire in 20 years, it'll be an option. Such a joke.
Replicate the function of the online interface for both Mac and PC
When in Outlook online, there is an option to Pin your emails to the top of your inbox. It would be great if this feature translated to the desktop version.

This feature has been requested for literally years, and has plenty of support. In all seriousness, how difficult could it be?

Sugiro um recurso para fixar mensagens importantes no topo da caixa de entrada
I suggest a feature to pin important messages on top of the inbox

Lemme make key frequently consulted emails 'sticky' at the top of my many folders, not just the inbox!
I can't believe I can not found such simple feature like pinning email on an email app

Allow pinning of multiple functions to task bar. Such as the new email function, simply click the icon on the task bar and draft a new message or be able to pin calendar only view on task bar.
Life would be faster if I could just click the icon for a "new email" from my task bar rather than having to open the app.
Allow an equal feature to WhatsApp, which allows to attach certain emails to the top of your inbox for better follow-up.

Could we "freeze" the top 5 or 10 e-mails, similar to the functionality in Excel, but where that this would also show new incoming e-mails? So, if a user has hundreds of e-mails, and is looking at "older" e-mails, they could still easily see the body of new incoming e-mails without scrolling back and forth. Thanks!
PLEASE make this a feature on desktop. I find it ridiculous how it's 2019 and this STILL is not a feature. Thank you.
We use shared email boxes that we need to pin important emails to the top of the inbox for quick reference. We know that the pin feature is available in Web Mail but for business needs, we have all been instructed to start using all the shared mail inboxes in Outlook. We no longer have the ability to keep the important emails pinned at the top. This would be very useful to those of us who know it is available in Webmail but not in Outlook.
