  1. Provide an option to restore both windows when Microsoft Outlook windows are minimized.

    Provide an option to restore both windows when Microsoft Outlook windows are minimized. As right now, when we minimize Outlook window and try to restore, only one of the open windows get restored. We have to close and re-open to get both Windows back.

  5. Option to reduce the symbol of attachments

    Hide information about attachment size in message view and reduce size of the icon attachment, so that only one line is consumed (like in older versions of outlook). This could be incorporated in the minimal header feature.

  10. Add an option to DLs to not allow messages where DL is on BCC

    It would be great as a large DL owner to mark the DL not to accept any messages where the DL was BCCed instead of added to the To or CC fields.

  11. Update button in Outlook 2016

    The current location of "update" button and "Send/Receive All Folders" is not very accessible and most people don't even know that Outlook has this feature. In all other competing mail clients these buttons are at the very first tab and show up by default, because they're used extremely frequently.

  12. Why does my Outlook have a constant lag in it's operations since the 2016 upgrade?

    Office Outlook 2016 runs extremely slow, with a constant lag in all it's operations. ie. when selecting emails or switching between mail, calendar, contacts, there's an average 2-3 second lag. With the calendar, it doesn't scroll properly and has to 'think' about it before jumping forward/backward. selecting This has only started occurring since the 2016 upgrade.

  13. 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.

  14. Moderated Distribution Group Exceptions

    Moderated Distribution groups give users a "mail tip" to let them know how thier messages delivery may be impacted. Users who are not allowed to send to the group get a tip that says they are not allowed. Users whos mail will be moderated are told that this will occur. Prior to Exchange 2016, this worked flawlessly for us.

    But we have nested groups that are allowed to bypass moderation, and on Exchange 2016, this breaks the tool tips. Is this ever going to be fixed?

  16. 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.

  17. 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.

  18. 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".

  19. 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.
