  1. Create different icons for different actions in Outlook 2016.

    In the Quick Access Toolbar the "Undo Delete" icon and the "Reply" icon are identical. So are the "New Email" icon and the "Mark as Unread" icon.

    Access 2 Outlook accts without having to log out of one and log in to the other every time. Like an "account switcher" like Facebook has.

  7. My idea is when Outlook updates, stop resetting every (or most) defaults. It is a waste of time having to reset everything

    Very simple - stop updates from resetting defaults all (or most) of the time. Every time, I have to go through all of my business computers to reset them the way I do business rather than the way that Microsoft wants me to do business.

  9. Provide an option to Sort by Read or unread in Outlook 2016

    Make a sort setting for "read".

    As we can filter by unread right now but it would be good if there would be an option to sort emails by read or unread in Outlook 2016. Also like search folders, user should have the option to add Tabs besides All and Unread and provide their search criteria.

  10. Switch for multiple views

    It will be better if we can save multiple views with different name and switch between whenever a different view is needed.

  13. Categorize icon to appear when hovering over the email

    Assigning a category to an email: Instead of right clicking an email to get to the "Categorize" menu, it would be handy, if a categorize icon appeared when hovering over the email, just like a To-do Flag currently appears when hovering. A normal left click would then bring up the list of categories.

  15. Provide an option to select calendars to show the events from all or selected Calendars in Outlook Today in Microsoft Outlook 2016

    Provide an option to select calendars to show the events from all or selected Calendars in Outlook Today similar to the emails from selected folders in Microsoft Outlook 2016. Nowadays, we can choose the folders for the "Messages" section of "Outlook for today".

    But in the Calendar section is quite difficult to see different events if your sources are coming from different calendars… Internet, Birthdays, Family Calendar, the Outlook.com Calendar, …

    I would like to see in this "Outlook for today" all the different events that I handle from the different sources. Add I think this would be possible if…

  17. Outlook application password when using 2FA

    I have noticed that Outlook 365 app does not tell a user who uses 2 step authentication on the Outlook.com to get and provide the application password and not a password of the account the user tries to add to the Outlook 365 app.
    It took me two weeks to guess this. Please add some prechecking then adding accounts having such 2FA or at least give o pop up letting the user to know that if 2FA is being used, a password not from a web login has to be provided.

  19. Quick step to add the recipients of a selected email to a distribution list. (in Contacts)

    running rules to organize email sometimes depends on a distribution list. to add a recipient (or more) to a distribution list is still a manual process. ex" a particular task generates several participants to send emails, because I will only receive emails from them based on this task, a rule would move them to a folder created for the task via rule based on Distribution list. I could run two quick steps, 1 to add to task distribution , then 2 to move the current email or run a particular rule now. subsequent emails would move via the rule.
