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!

Would make life much easier. Please add to desktop version!
Yes, please add this feature!
Pin option in OWA
No pin option in Outlook 2016 (win) or MobileApp
Fire who ever thought above was acceptable, this isn't 1999.
Make it so!
Create a separate tab for Pinned (as there are for Unread, Mentions) as well. Also, mobile client should always sync all pinned messages. There are some important key items that I want to be always available in my mobile. By default, mobile client only syncs for few days / weeks and then the message is lost and has to be searched (need to be onlne). I want pin to top to work in conjunction with sync.

I would love to be a "fly on the wall" to hear the discussion why the pin feature would be good just for the online but not the desktop.
On second thought, the logic or lack of thinking broadly would be highly disappointing. Just do it, please.
I don't have a thumbtack icon next to my flag????
I found that you can't pin "sent" email but if you move the selected "sent" email to your inbox, you can flag it and pin it to the top of your inbox. Just click the thumbtack icon next to the flag icon.
Please add pin option for emails to be on top for outlook applications on windows.

Please provide an Outlook 2016 Pin option!!

Pin option needed!
I cannot explain to end users that the web version offers more options as the outlook 2016 client. Management is not understanding of this lack either.
Hear, hear, top feature request! Make it so!

Add the PIN feature that is available in 365 please!
Amazing that it is available in the web app and not the desktop app or mobile app. Kind of a joke really.

There are time, post from group admin went unnoticed due to high traffic. it would be ideal to allow group admin to "pin" such post to the top of the list so that everybody can see it immediately.

I vote yes! Please provide an Outlook 2016 Pin option like the OWA and 365 already have.
As Ben Merryman says Aug 24th this should be easy. Sadly this request started about 18 months ago which contradicts with the MS statement "How can we improve your Desktop Outlook 2016 experience?" Is there no will to do this? Difficult to assess if any action is even in progress.
I agree! We need a pin option in outlook!!!
