  1. allow me to choose ansd save the color for the Office Theme

    Recently, MS Office decided to change the color scheme to Colorful - I have been using White color scheme for many years. I have tried to change it back to white many times. But, every time I exit and restart an application, it goes back to Colorful. Outlook should allow me to save it.

  5. Enable Outlook as a Complication for Info graph Modular Apple Watch face.

    Provide Outlook as a Complication on the Info graph Modular Apple Watch Face. Outlook is already available as a complication on the Modular Apple Watch Face, of which Info graph Modular is roughly v2 and takes advantage of new hardware.

  6. For us boomers please provide a pure black (not grey) font on white background so we can read screen. I'm struggling to read the print.

    I'm sure other Baby Boomers are having difficulties reading grey on white like I am. Not enough contract for aging eyes. Increasing font size only works on the messages but not where I file and organise messages. Seems like everything is designed these days for young folks with good vision. I can barely see this message as I type it because the print is so miniscule.

  9. I absolutely hate the black pop-up boxes in lower right of the screen for meetings, connections, etc. Terribly disruptive!

    Please provide a way to eliminate the black popup boxes in the lower right that give meeting reminders, email arrivals, connections, etc. Very disruptive to work.

  11. Add a Follow-ups only view to Navigation options in Microsoft Outlook 2016

    I'm forever flagging items for follow-up, but Outlook doesn't provide a good view of these, something simple and effective to view. In the navigation options where there is a mail, calendar, tasks, or people view, why don't we add a 'Follow-up' view as well? I think it deserves being separated out and should be considered by means of integration with Tasks, and dare I say better integration with the application To-Do. Time this all became one straight forward view.

  12. Default send Address for replies and new mails

    I have a only receive Mailbox and every time when i reply to a message i must change the mail-address.

    There should be a option to set a default send mail-address for new mails and replies. Add an option for allowing you to confirm the outgoing email account when using outlook for multiple email accounts.

    There are addins for this function.
    I think this is a very crucial function and i don't want to install 3rd party add-ins because of this. Please add this as default function to Outlook 2016.

  15. Don't change settings without asking

    I missed important emails because Outlook automatically shuffled my inbox into Focused and Other.
    My idea is: Don't do that again.

  16. Out Of Office in Outlook 2016

    If several accounts (e-mail) are in Outlook, it would be great if you could Install an Out of Office reply (different) for EACH of the accounts (e-mail addresses). It also refers to inclusion of POP, IMAP and Exchange based accounts. We can further enhance this feature to include Out Of Office for group emails or emails containing distribution lists.

  17. syncronise/backup/restore of potentially all outlook config and settings

    There should be more ways to backup and restore settings between Outlook installations. Having to enter several accounts and user config settings manually into a newly installed Outlook implementation is a pain. For a program of this age I would have though Microsoft would have implemented something by now.
    1. Backup of selectable config and account settings to a file.
    or
    2. Synchronise selectable config and account settings via users Microsoft acccount.

  18. Change "Delete" and "Delete all" to "Delete folder" and "Delete all mail"

    "Delete" and "Delete all" for deleting folder and mail in folder is terse and unclear, change it to "Delete folder" and "Delete all mail". Providing an option to delete emails in a particular folder by Date Range or Month Range would increase productivity. I have 276,640 emails dating back to 2006, Having a feature that would delete all emails from 2006 based on dates, would be great.

  19. In the new appointment window, make the Location button less prominent or allow it to be hidden

    The Location button on the appointment window in Outlook 365's new Simplified UX is far more prominent than it used to be, and I have mistakenly clicked it numerous times the past few weeks instead of "Save & Close" which is further off to the side.

    I frequently use appointments to time-box reminders for myself and so I can see my tasks in my calendar. These never need a location.

    If I have an appointment that requires a location, 99% of the time this will actually be a meeting, and so I will use the meeting item for this purpose.
