  2. Highlight external email senders automatically in Outlook

    Enable to see companies adding big colorful warning banners in their emails warning about it being from an external source. It seems like this should just be a native function within Outlook that administrators can enable so that the Names/Emails of any external people are highlighted specifically, and also put a warning icon or something next to the subject or something similar to make it very easy to discern internal vs external emails while not needing to inject unnecessary banners that impede the readability of email threads.

  3. Upload attachments to Teams' channel folder

    It would be great nice if I could upload attachments to Teams' channel folder. Currently, only folder I can upload is root folder of document library but it is not root folder of Teams. I have to do several more steps to save appropriate folder.

  4. Have a month & year display on the mail scroll bar

    As you are dragging the scroll bar on your mail, it would be great to have a month & year shown with it. Storage has increase so much that people keep all their emails & this would make searching much faster.

  8. Follow-up reminders about unanswered e-mails

    Greetings,

    In my daily work I often struggle with following scenario (I guess not only me): I send an e-mail to someone with a request to take some action. These requests are not always urgent, but I expect to receive an answer/feedback in the end to close the case.

    But sometimes e-mails don't get answered by the recipients or they simply forget to reply.
    The problem is I cannot track responses and constantly keep in memory the list of all unanswered e-mails.

    So, I would love to see a feature in Outlook which would allow me to mark (some) outgoing…

  11. 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!

  13. 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.

  14. Add users without replying-all and sharing the historical email thread as well in Microsoft Outlook 2016

    When a user wants to add a co-worker to an email chain, he/she needs to reply all with the new recipient added. For the email recipients, it is a waste of time to open an email and simply see that a new person was added.
    Instead, if Outlook/Exchange could provide a method to add a user and save it on the server so that the next reply all would automatically include the new recipient, it would save time. An alert similar to "you are not replying to the latest email in this thread" could be sent to the new composer,…

  16. Provide way to delete emails in multiple folders without affecting folder structure

    Please provide an easy way to delete multiple emails across multiple folders/subfolders without affecting the folder structure in Outlook. I realize I can right-click on each folder and Delete All (except a folder that has subfolders that I don't want to delete).

    Example is I have a folder with 14 subfolders. From time to time I want to clear out all the emails in those 15 folders without deleting any of the folder structure.

    Thanks!

  19. Backup & Restore in a Easy Way

    Right now there is feature to "export to a file" for data file, which is kind for those who are expert, but to make it more simple, if a option for Backup and restore is there, it will be easy and to manage data more secure.

  20. Please add a Send Individually Button

    I often find I need to send mails to many Distribution Lists which can have a large number of users on and cross-posting is frowned upon by the DL owners

    I value the use & efficiency of my time much more than the time it takes to spend what can be many extra additional minutes (per distribution list) to copy paste and then send emails to many different recipients in the To Field.

    Therefore, to improve the user experience of sending bulk emails (including to large lists that may otherwise just get BCC'd) I would like a button that would…
