How can we improve your Desktop Outlook 2016 experience?

Provide a feature or an option of an alert when Outbox is not able to send and receive emails in Microsoft Outlook 2016

Please send a mail to me when the Outbox it not sending mail.
That tiny message in the bottom of the window is NOT an alert.
I cannot be expected to constantly monitor my Outbox especially when I am still merrily receiving emails.
And no I am not able to increase my mail box size - it is restricted by my employer.
I have to already spend unnecessary time emptying my mail box because of size issues - I do not need to have to add monitoring my Outbox and checking the bottom of my screen for TINY error messages.

    We want to use this feature to alert team if an expected email was not received at a particular time so that some action can be taken.

    This would be very helpful for support system. Basically this could be an extension to existing Rules where a feature can be added to alert for expected email.
