  1. Rethink the direction Outlook is going

    The look and feel of Outlook as well as most of the other office applications is continuing to look worse and worse. It's becoming much more childish looking and less professional looking. Many of the sections take up way too much space on the screen. The most recent change to the top of a new message looks totally ridiculous. Why either boxes around To, CC and BCC and not around Subject for example?

    Users should also be able to adjust the space between items in the Folder Pane, there is way too much whitespace between items and you have to…

  3. Schedule Work Offline Mode on Recurring Basis

    With Outlooks new emphasis on focus time and quality of life improvement, I would love a feature that allows me to schedule work offline/work online times and toggle the work offline button during these periods of "focus time"

  4. Wrap long subjects in the reading Pane

    Wrap long subjects in the reading Pane

    The subject shown in the reading pane is shown only on one line, when it is longer, the last part of the subject is lost and one must open the email to see the full subject.

    The Subject should should wrap to the next line to allow full view of the subject in the reading pane.

  5. When we block a sender it should automatically be moved out of the mail boxes AND ALSO mark more than 1 block emails at once.

    When we block a sender it should automatically block, remove from spam/junk & deleted mail, never to be seen again. There are so many Unnecessary steps to get a spam email out of the mail.

    PLUS we should be able to block all of the emails in spam at once.

  7. Please add delay delivery timer in the Outbox window

    Please add delay delivery timer in the Outbox window.
    When I have emails that will delivery in the future, they are shown in the Outbox window. But the thing is I can't see the timer, I will have to click on it to open up the email to confirm the timer.
    Suggest screenshot here: https://prnt.sc/tgljem
    Please add the timer column so we can confirm it easier.
    Thank you so much

  8. An option to bold or highlight selected mail folders

    Have the ability to bold or highlight, use different font colour on certain mail folders in Outlook. We have so many folders, it would be great be able to be quickly identify in the long list of folders certain ones - even just the main ones.

  9. Banner/icon for BCC'd recipient to know they were a BCC

    Add a small banner or icon on emails received by a BCC so the BCC'd recipient knows to be careful in replying or replying all since other recipients don't know the BCC'd recipient was included.

  12. 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

  13. Insert availability

    Usually, I have to coordinate availability of internal associates with consultants who do not have access to our O365 tenant.

    It would be nice if there was a way to insert availability via the Insert tab for a specific day which lets me key the users whos calendar we are working with.

    This way, the recipient can simply create an appointment or meeting and send back quickly.

  14. Please provide the unread email count badges on taskbar. It is so useful to know what drops in our mailbox while working on different window

    Please provide the unread email count badges on taskbar. It is so useful to know what drops in our mailbox while working on different task in different window. It will save 30 second to 1 minute. You can imagine how powerful feature would be and there is no doubt that a lot of resource hours ( No of current users * 60 Seconds = x number of hours ) can be saved adding this feature.
