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!

Be able to pin a window on top of others (I.E. Emailing someone with possible times in minimized window, have maximized window behind it showing calendar. Would like to change the dates viewing and Outlook feature would keep window on top so it would not minimize)
I would like to use it on Posts (and possibly also on emails).
I use Posts for reference-information pertaining to a given folder, and would like to keep such (very few) posts at the top of the folder always. I have tried to "code" the functionality using user-defined fields, but do not find any good solution.

Anpinnen von E-Mail zur besseren Nachverfolgbarkeit die immer an oberster Stelle angepinnt bleiben bis der Pin entfernt wird.

An option to pin emails to the top of your inbox. Funnily enough my Outlook inbox on my phone has this, but not the desktop version. The closest my desktop version seems to have of this is the flag, but this doesn't work as well for me.
The Desktop version does not allow this, whereas Outlook Online does as well as Office.com Beta on mobile.

When I have multiple mails window opened, and sometimes outlook causes issues like half screen will be hidden/ slowness issue , so we need to exit the outlook, but I didn't finish reading the opened mail windows (3 or 4 mails windows) and don't want to search and reopen it again from the bunch of emails. If we have the Pin option in the outlook opened mail windows, that would be very helpful and time-saving.
ik wil een bericht bovenaan de kolom vast kunnen zetten. Dit was mogelijk. Misschien opnieuw mogelijk maken?
I want to be able to put a message at the top of the column. This was possible. Maybe make it possible again?

What happen can not flag or pin emails.
Also when clicking TO; to get list of contacts brings up ADD contact list and can not select a number of contacts to email to.
Honestly, staff at our school are beginning to research and share out alternative email clients because this feature is so useful.
I suggest you can add an funtion that Placed some specific emails at the top,so that everytime I enter the outlook, I can see this emails at first sight .

I can pin up emails to the top of my email feed on the web version but this functionality doesnt exist on the outlook desktop version. It would be so much better if this was a feature on the desktop version to stay on top of your to do emails
In the web version, you can pin emails and they will move to the top of you inbox. This should be a feature on the downloaded version as well.
Just recently discovered this feature in the online version, we really need this in the desktop as well!

The pin feature on outlook online is amazingly simple and effective, the feature simply needs to be added to the outlook desktop application
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.
