  2. Need option for disabling "Other Suggestions" for email addresses

    I like to have autocomplete but hate the "Other Suggestions". I am unable to find a way to disable that. It is VERY counterproductive, especially for emails that are no longer valid and I don't get option to remove it

  3. 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

  4. Enable the 'From' field in an OFT to be either blank or saved as a different email address

    It would be very useful when creating an Outlook template .OFT file, to be able to either leave the 'From' email address field blank, or save it as an email address of a shared mailbox. Currently when creating an OFT, if you fill in the desired email address (that you have permissions to send from) into the 'From' field, and save the OFT file and close it, when you open the OFT file again, the 'From' email address reverts to the account of whoever opens the OFT file from their Outlook client. If this isn't possible, even just being able…

  5. Read Later

    Just like the Archive folder and option within Outlook, w would like to see a folder, Ribbon button and context menu option called "Read Later". This is useful to help keep the Inbox organized and clean.

  6. Recall feature

    I don't see the recall option, which I think is an important feature.

  8. Provide a feature in Outlook to Silently Retract or Recall Messages

    Outlook Cannot Silently Retract Messages. Outlook can retract (called Message Recall in Outlook), but whether successful or not, the recipient knows that the attempt was made (and the attempt includes the subject line).

  10. A 'button' to cancel/re-call an already sent e-mail

    More often than not, you find yourself having sent an e-mail with, for instance, wrong dates, facts, times etc.
    We would very much appreciate a feature that can cancel and re-call an already sent e-mail. Thanks!

  12. Automatic Replies - Please provide an All Day Option

    Currently automatic replies shows:
    Only send during this time range:
    Start time: [date] [time]
    End time: [date] [time]

    can you add an "all day" option like every other modern calendar has so I dont need to set 12:00 AM for start time and 11:30 PM for end time?

  13. Please add a confirmation pop-up when utilizing "mark All as read" that gives the option to cancel.

    at least when doing it to an inbox folder or a large number of selected emails (not for an individual email or for a few selected emails).

  14. Alert for too many recipients in the "To" field

    I would love it if an alert would pop up if more than 15 or 20 names are entered in the "To" field. The alert might read, "Are you sure you want to include so many names in this field? Consider pasting your list of recipients in the "Bcc" field instead."
    This would have served as a reminder and saved me much embarrassment (twice now!!) because of sending an email where all 500+ email addresses appear before the body of the email.

    Thank you!!!

  15. 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.

  16. Provide 'Recipient' status whether he has seen mail or not before Recall/Resend email

    Provide 'Recipient' status whether he has seen mail or not before Recall/Resend email

    Current Functionality:
    Click on Email->File->Message Resend and Recall
    Tow options there: 1. Resend message for unseen recipient and 2. Recall message.
    Once sender use this then he will get notification of how many recipients message has been recalled.

    Improvement:
    When user is clicking on 'File->Message Resend and Recall'
    Is it possible to give 'Recipient' status whether he has seen message or not. So that sender will decide that Resend/Recall is fruitful or not.

    For e.g.
    If sender wants to update message for recipient 'A' but he has…

  17. folder pane density

    Increase the folder pane density so I can see more of my folders. (It seems that the font is large and there is a lot of dead space between each collapsed folder to make touch screen use easier, but the billions of users that still use a mouse may find this wasteful and inefficient to scroll through tons of folders.)

  18. Allow users to mark senders as not Junk!!!!

    I'm constantly having to move stuff out of junk from senders I've already identified as trusted. Science Daily is a great newsletter that always ends up in my Junk folder and I've identified it as Not Junk hundreds of times!

  19. Please have different notifications for focused inbox and other inbox.

    Allow the user to select a certain sound/notification for the focused inbox and another sound (or no sound) for the other inbox. Will prevent me from stopping my work and checking my email only yo see that I got a general non-urgent email in my other inbox. If I had a chime for my focused inbox and no sound for the other inbox, I could get more work done.
