      Thank you for taking the time to provide feedback about the new icons. We know any change to the user experience can be disruptive at first, especially major changes like updating all the icons. Even though these new icons have been through many rounds of feedback and refinement with real customers, we’re sorry you’re not finding the new icons helpful.

      The new icons incorporate customer feedback we had received on the old icon design: bolder lines and higher color contrast helps make icons are more visible when using your computer near a window, a laptop in direct sunlight, or for folks with less than perfect vision. The new icons are also built using scalable graphics so they are never pixelated and can adapt to any device — whether it’s a monitor you’ve had for many years or a brand new 4K display. We’re also evolving the user interface designs on…

    • Reply all with attachments included in Outlook 2016

      In Microsoft Outlook 2016, when reply all to the email with attachments, the attachments are not available and we have to attach them manually. An option to reply all to the email with all the attachments included would be more productive in Microsoft Outlook 2016 as that option is not available as of now.

      • Add 'Acknowledged' and 'Thanks' buttons to emails that will tell the sender you have seen their email, without having to send another.

        Add 'Acknowledged' and 'Thanks' buttons to emails that will tell the sender you have seen/appreciate their email, without having to send another, thereby reducing email traffic.

        • Auto complete using full contact list instead of just "recent contacts"

          When I'm writing an email, I would like to be able to type an email from my contacts into the "to" bar and have outlook autocomplete the email without me having to go to the contacts menu.

          • Allow signatures to be synced between different machines for the same office 365 account

            I use more than one machine to read & send emails using Outlook 365. I would like any signature that I create to be automatically synced (including with office.com) so that it is available regardless of which machine I am using.

            • Allow us to change the font, its size and choice of style for the to, cc, bcc and subject lines of email

              Allow us to change the font, its size, and style for the to, cc, bcc and subject lines of an email. I have checked online and lots of people have this problem, no fix has been suggested. July 24, 2018

              • Fix default font so that no part of the message reverts to Calibri

                Outlook allows you set a default font and choose your own font for your signature, but no matter what you do, there will always be at least 1 blank line below your signature (in new messages and replies) where the font reverts back to Calibri. This means if you remove your signature, then start typing, you are not in your default font and must manually change it.

                    • change folders color - change table rows color

                      I'd like to identify the folders by color and do the same for incoming mail in table view. Also would be great to change rows color in table view.

                        • The ability to bounce emails

                          Combat spam by bouncing emails back to a sender making them think your email address is not valid. I used to do this all the time when using an older email client on Windows XP. I started when I was getting over 100 spam emails a day, and managed to reduce this to 2 a week

                          • Allow to change colour for inline comments only

                            Now user is enabled only to change the text style for replys in MS Outlook, but not only for inline comments. It would be a wonderful option to choose a separate style for replays and for inline comments as I would like to keep a standard style for general replays and choose a different coloured text for inline comments (to be separated in the previous e-mail).

                                  • Block Senders Domain in Junk

                                    When getting lots of junk email with same domain name(with different email accounts) it would be great if we get an option to block senders domain. We can edit the blocked senders , but its again a tedious process and we may end up doing this daily. Adding a button on Junk so we can block the senders domain right away would be an easier way to tackle this menace.

                                      • Mailtips on all Outlook clients: when a mailtip about external recipient is shown, the external recipients should be highlighted

                                        Mailtips on all Outlook clients: when a mailtip about external recipient is shown, the external recipients should be highlighted in to/cc/bcc fields to make external recipients to stand out.
                                        This should apply to at least Outlook for Windows and in web client version as well.

                                        • There's possibly now too much empty space in the email window

                                          It'd be great to reduce the new size of the "from", "to" and "CC/BCC" columns in both the Popped Out New Email window and the inset 'reply' window. There's a lot of "dead-air" above the line where one writes the email
