  1. Ability to Identify "Priority Senders" resulting in a highlighted message and a priority count by the inbox folder

    In todays environment the flood of emails one receives each day is daunting. While everyone thinks that their email should be top priority, if everything is "urgent" then nothing is "urgent". Each individual has a certain list of "senders" whos emails receive priority over all others. Without having to resort to a rule sending these emails to a special folder ( where they risk being ignored in the press of business) I would be useful if the priority sender's emails were highlighted and a count listed by the inbox. this would make it easy to search for those "urgent" messages…

  3. Ausschneiden und Skizzieren per Outlook teilen.

    The "Mail" app is firmly anchored in the Cut and Sketch app. It would be great if Outlook were also anchored there or if you could address other installed programs such as Telegram or WhatsApp to share a screenshot.

  4. Folder Priority Alerts

    Please provide an option to make some folders top priority. Something where Outlook notifies us in a popup that a folder has received an email.

    This will help for companies receiving sales orders, internal high profile delegates, urgent matters, etc...

  5. 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…

  6. Automatic Replies (Out of Office) by sender's timezone

    Allow for different out of office/automatic replies based on sender's timezone - will be very useful when on business travel.

  7. Prevent attachments with unsaved changes

    When attaching a file to a message, if the file is open on the PC and has unsaved changes, Outlook should generate a warning message to remind the user to save the file prior to attaching it.

  9. 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).

  11. Get your e-mail quickly into a folder

    3 mouse clicks on a e-mail in the inbox and it will automatically be placed in its predefined folder.

    We have a lot of folders and now we have to search everytime for the folder.

    I know that you can place it automatticly into a folder but we first want to answer it in inbox folder and when we are answered it we place it in a customer folder.

  14. For filing email on the desktop app, you should be able to use keys to get to specific folders more quickly

    Currently, for filing email in the desk top app, you need to select through the file structure, folder level by folder level, to get to a particular folder. You should be able to use keys to get to a specific folder more quickly. On the app, you can start typing the folder name and it pops up folders with the letters, as you type, and so you can just tap on the folder to select.

  20. If emailing more than a set number of contacts prompt the user if they meant to use BCC.

    An organization can set that if a user adds more than 10, 25, 50, 100 (whatever set number) contacts to an email prior to sending the user is prompted if they meant to use BCC.

    Similar to the prompt if the user meant to add an attachment when the attachment is missing.

    Would greatly reduce reply all issues.
