  1. Option to print only selected text in an email in Microsoft Outlook 2016

    An option to an email's contents and then only print the highlighted item in Microsoft Outlook 20106 would be beneficial. At present, you can only print the whole email.

  2. outlook configuration sync across machines

    Using Office 365 and desktop Outlook, sync the configuration of Outlook for any machine I run it on. Carry through Office 365 my Outlook settings for appearance (message header display, etc.) and client-side rules and folder expire policies. Also add calendar color sync function across devices and for all the protocols. Also t would be great to have a feature where Calendars could synchronized without having to send event invites to different Outlook accounts.

  3. Solution for Synchronization Problem - Possibility for manual matching of IMAP folders

    The possibility to correct the matching of IMAP folders, like in Outlook 2007 should be added.

    That means it should be possible to change the settings for the folders were the Sent and Deleted items should be stored.

    This is a serious problem in the German Outlook version (17 votes in microsoft comunnity): Due to wrong matching the Synchronization does not work correct. E.g. Outlook stores the sent email in a folder named "Gesendete Elemente" (sent items) and the email provider expects "sent".

  4. Make GIF's available for Outlook 2007 to 2016!

    I can't see pictures, GIF's on my Outlook from 2007 to 2016. It'd be great for everyone to experience this awesome feature. Even Microsoft has use them and it's sad that I need to send it to other email clients to see it.

  5. Outlook 2016 sync issues

    In Outlook 2016, I am missing 5 months worth of sent E-mails. The E-mails are there as can be seen in Outlook.com, however, they will not sync to Outlook 2016. Meanwhile, Outlook 2016 believes that sync is complete. Syncing between Outlook 2016 and Outlook.com seems generally unreliable and slow.

  9. Show Icons in the Shortcuts Pane in Outlook 2016

    Shortcuts Pane should show the item icons the same way the Folder Pane does. Trying to find an item is much faster with icon recognition than with reading.

  13. Option to print only first page for "chanined" long E-mails

    When receiving a new E-mail which is a new comment to many older mails below it should be possible to print only the "new" first page. Each time (1) open the E-Mail (2) select print (3) select print only page 1 and than (4) click to print is very annoying.

  14. More color options for icons in the Quick Access Toolbar

    Icons in the Quick Access Toolbar (QAT) are now monochrome in Microsoft Outlook 2016. The custom icons which are colored are very limited in number. It would be nice to get Quick Access Toolbar icons in different colors.

    Also, as someone with challenged vision, I find Outlook 2016 more difficult to see. I have had to turn on reading pane in order to zoom my emails so I can read them. But I really don’t like using reading pane. I have found a way to increase the font size in my emails list, which is helpful, but other than that,…

  15. metered connection

    Often Outlook (and Edge browser as well) will think I'm still on a metered connection after I've connected to WiFi. This usually keeps the apps offline even if I say it's ok to continue. Also provide proper sync on metered connection with Outlook 2016

    Only rebooting the PC will help solve the problem.

  16. Adjust Outlook performance to handle super-delegate scenarios

    Microsoft states that it has not tested delegate scenarios beyond a 1 to 4 ratio of delegate to managers, also known as the super-delegate scenario. Some guidance is provided on ways to handle super-delegate scenarios in this TechNet Blog post:

    https://blogs.technet.microsoft.com/officeresourcekit/2012/12/17/recommendations-for-configuring-delegate-scenarios-in-outlook-2010/

    Unfortunately, this post does not go far enough towards addressing a need to scale to larger delegate scenarios (think 1 to 40 or greater) and the performance hit to Outlook synchronization that is seen as the ratio increases.

    In a super-delegate scenario, the delegate (or team of delegates) opening a manager’s mailbox will change day-to-day and as…

  19. Account Name in Navigation Pane does not preserve capitalization

    When you change the account name in the Account Properties dialog, the account name shown in Navigation Pane does not display capitalization and shows lower case. The spelling is correct but the capitalisation used is not reflected in the Navigation Pane.

  20. don't block shutdown if emptying the "deleted items" folder on exit is on

    Please don't block Windows shutdown if the setting to empty the "deleted items" folder on exit is set.

    Do select a sensible default instead. Based on how autosave is behaving in other office applications, I'd say go ahead and delete without asking. Alternatively, skip the folder cleanup on shutdown and just exit. Whatever you do, just don't stop the shutdown sequence.

    This is one of the most frustrating things in Outlook for me, as this usually happens just as I want to shut down the laptop and rush to the train station (this is also the reason I usually don't…
