  2. Apply current views to other folders needs to work. Any new folders should automatically set to your master view layout.

    Apply current views to other folders needs to work.
    Any new folders should automatically set to your master view layout.
    every time I create a new folder I have to stop and change the settings.
    I have selected all mailboxes and apply view to folders, and that doesn't always work either.

  4. Global settings for email folders in Outlook 2016

    It would be very nice, and would save a lot of time, if there was a way to set email folder settings globally, instead of having to go to each and every folder and change the settings to what I want them to be.

  5. Provide a feature or an option to skip the auto-account setup in Microsoft Outlook 2016

    Provide a feature or an option to skip the auto-account setup in Microsoft Outlook 2016. Particularly when Outlook tries to search for existing email accounts. There really needs to be an option to completely bypass account setup and start Microsoft Outlook 2016 with no email(like in previous versions), and add email accounts and outlook data files later - manually.

  6. Display account in Folder Pane when choosing inbox in Favorites Pane in Outlook 2016

    I have few email accounts setup in outlook, each with multiple sub folders. So when accounts/folders are open, they obviously can't all be seen in the Folder Pane without scrolling up and down.

    I have the inboxes to all my accounts showing in the favorites pane, but I would like outlook to automatically display the account of the account of the inbox I choose above in the favorites pane, in the folder pane. Therefore not making me have to scroll each time I'm in a different inbox.

  7. Outlook should have one filter for settings options in Outlook 2016

    In the settings form, Outlook should have one filter.
    This will bring to the user the possibility of search rapidly the setting option that is needed.

  8. An easy way to turn off the autoformat features, esp. the Auto Indent.

  9. Warn users when trying to create a PST-file in a folder redirected to OneDrive

    Display a warning during setup of a new Outlook profile or adding a new account which will use a local PST file when the user profile folders are redirected to OneDrive.

    Otherwise, the user is facing the risk to have the PST file corrupted.

    Even though that the default folder location can be controlled by GPOs on domain joined computers, a hint / warning would help to avoid distracted users due to PST file corruption.

  10. updates that don't wipe out all folder settings like the one done on 7-1-18.

    Just updated Outlook (7-1-18). All folder settings were lost & have to be redone, one by one, on 2 different pcs. I wasted an hour of my life fixing this problem.

  11. Organize – Conversations

    Can you add a setting to change all folders to conversations at once, instead of having to click every folder indivually and going to the organize tab and choosing for that folder to display as a Conversation. I create new folders all the time and I have to remember to change the Organize setting to conversations, instead the default. Please a new setting to change all folders at once to Conversation style organization.

    Thank you

    In Mailbox Settings, Tools, Mailbox Cleanup. The Theme does not reflect the main selected theme, the additions options in that place is also unfinish and unpolished. Please update them.

  14. archive tool that is easy to use

    Its really difficult to find the archive tool. Not the auto-archive which doesn't work but the manual archive which used to work.

  15. Spaces should be allowed in hyperlinks (need a setting) - right now it stops at first space

    I cannot find a feature in Outlook that can be set so that spaces are allowed in hyperlinks (especially for file-names in network paths, etc. Currently, when you have a filename or a directory name which contains a space (allowed in Windows), the autoformatting for hyperlinks stops the hyperlink at the first space, so in most cases, the hyperlink can't find the location, and an error message window pops up. Is there a setting anywhere that can permit this, where autocorrect would at least ask you if the link is correct, or does it continue until an <Enter> or <CR-LF>,…

  16. To provide an option in Quick Access Toolbar - Default Toolbar to Auto-hide unusable items in Outlook 2016

    The Quick Access Toolbar is an awesome tool for the Office product lines. The only downside with Outlook is that you have a different QA-Toolbar in each of the various screens (e.g. Replies, Forwards, Calendar, Inbox, Meetings, etc....). I suggest there being a default one that would standardize all Toolbars. That being said, some options are not viable for certain panes (such as "Format AutoShape: Size" when in Mail). I would propose that with a default toolbar, all unused options would "hide," just leaving the pertinent ones and de-cluttering the toolbar while keeping things standardized (like with the Toolbar's custom…

  17. How can I block notifications for new emails or calendar items in Microsoft Outlook 2016

    Don't like interruption of notifications appearing on screen when I'm reading or typing elsewhere. It might be interesting to enable or disable notifications for all items in a calendar based on the schedule.

  19. turn off junk filter

    Outlook especially with the new beta has been removing a lot of settings and ways to customize your email. I've had a terrible experience after terrible experience with the junk filter. I have lost important emails, I wasted lots of time trying to bypass it or turn it off with rules only to learn its impossible, etc. So please give the option to disable it or at least bypass it, and keep more advanced settings.
