Warning Before Replying All to Many
Many folks reply all to a mass email, providing feedback like "Great Job" or "Look forward to this" to hundreds of employees instead of the responsible party. There should be a warning that asks you if you are sure to send this email to 13,000 people at once? This would be a fail safe for when people hit reply all instead of reply.

There exists a freeware tool for Outlook named TuneReplyAll.

Senders in my organization have learned to use the BCC line for mass mailings so an inadvertent "reply all" will have no impact. The problem is, as a recipient, sometimes you want to know who received the notification and you can't tell. (I put this information in general rems in the body of the email, but most do not)

Good idea. Eliminate public shaming. :)

While the addition of the "tool tip" in the Outlook desktop client indicating how many people will get the message is nice, it is not enough and seems to get lost with the tool tips for those with out of office replies turned on. Would be great to force the user to take some action (i.e. click OK on a warning box) to encourage them to make better decisions with their responses. Also, in order for this to be effective, it needs to apply to all clients - desktop, online, and mobile.
Voted. This probably is a a good idea - but would spoil the fun when someone does makes an inappropriate 'reply to all'.
