  1. Include Additional theme options in order to provide a more pleasing color scheme

    The provided color schemes make it very difficult to distinguish folders

  2. Get rid of yellow background highlight on flagged messages or allow it to be disabled

    The new Outlook update puts a yellow background highlight on flagged messages. It is awful to look at an inbox full of yellow highlights. Please remove this highlighting or allow it to be disabled.

  4. Enable back "Always prompt for logon credentials" for Outlook client/email

    Enable back "Always prompt for logon credentials" for Outlook client/email

    Since it has been grayed out and not able to change. Users should have that option due to security risks when using office and outlook.

    Make it possible to prompt for user credentials every time or not

  5. Email Signature Sync across devices

    It would be great if Outlook sync'd your email signature across multiple devices so that you only have to set or update it once.

  6. Provide ability to change the color of the reading pane or set background and text color for the reading pane

    The dark theme is great in Outlook, however the inability to change the background and text color of the reading pane make it almost painful.

    It would be fantastic to have the ability to configure the default CSS for the reading pain and text/html therein.

  7. Re-enable "You should only open attachments from a trustworthy source" dialog if accidentally disabled

    When opening an Outlook attachment, one has to click on a prompt before viewing the attachment, but once the check box is unchecked the prompt disappears. The only way to re-enable this on Windows 7+ is to access registry editor which is completely inaccessible to non-administrators. Personally, any option that can be unchecked should be reversible in the settings panel.

  10. Spell check in automatic replies

    Open Authentication is required to be enabled on Outlook 2016 to work with some email providers, can this be done?

  14. Provide an option or feature to color code different email accounts in Microsoft Outlook 2016

    Provide an option or feature to color code different email accounts in Microsoft Outlook 2016. In WIndows Live, we use to be able to color code the different email accounts we had on the desktop version. I want the same ability for the outlook desktop version.

  15. Outlook should remember its windows sizes and positions

    When I open a new Windows inside Outlook for e.g. the Calendar or Tasks, pick a position for it and resize it according to my needs, it should be saved, so once those windows are closed and then reopened, I don't need to do this again.

    An older Office Version had this feature, but it seems to have been removed.

    Some details on this can be found here, please read the last statement from Jennifer from Microsoft.

  17. The "Keyboard Shortcuts: Customize Button" in Outlook 2016

    Office programs allow users to customize keyboard shortcuts in the "Customize the Ribbon" dialog window. Why doesn't Outlook? The "Keyboard Shortcuts: Customize" button is missing.

  18. Sort by @-mentions

    It would be great if we had the ability to sort for Mentions, similar to Categories, E-mails with @ mentions would be moved to the top of the folder.

  19. Enable an option to display new-mail taskbar icon for multiple folders

    I have "Production Orders" auto sort into their own folder using a rule, however since they are not in my inbox I do not get a new-mail taskbar icon to alert me to the fact that I have new mail. It would be nice if there was an option to enable this.

  20. The ribbion tool bar

    The ribbon tool bar is too large and taking up too much of my screen. Also the icons on the ribbon bar are too large. The colour range does not have enough choice. The older ribbon bar was much better on office 2010 and has gone south in my opinion. I hate the new ribbon bar and the feel of the system. The system is not an improvement over office 2010
