  2. Block forwarding when the Encrypt button selected

    I would like to use regedit or a patch to block forwarding messages when the Encrypt button selected in Outlook. Or it would be great if users could choose options from the button. The Permissions button has been replaced with the Encrypt button and Encrypt button was the one which could block forwarding messages. But now it only encrypts the message itself and users can forward a message. Users still think the Encrypt button can block forwarding messages, so we are encountering the problem that people mistakenly forward messages.

  7. Signatur with attachments

    Englisch:
    Could it be possible to add attachments to the signature? Especially for companies where general terms and conditions have to be sent almost always. Templates are very cumbersome.
    German:
    Kann es bitte möglich sein, dass man Anhänge in die Signatur einbaut. Gerade für Firmen wo fast immer Allgemeine Geschäftsbedingungen mitgeschickt werden müssen. Vorlagen sind dabei sehr umständlich.

  10. Copy an Email

    It is easy to copy an email from Inbox list of emails. But if I have an email open in full screen mode, there is no way to copy it as a file. There should be an option to copy it directly from the message window instead of having to go back on Inbox and locate it to copy. This would be real helpful in immediately copying open emails to attach to another or place it somewhere as a file. Thanks.

  11. 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.

  12. Insert SnippingTool images directly to Outlook

    I would be great if I start a new mail message and under the ribbon 'Add Element' there would be a item 'Add from SnippingTool', and I can add images from SnippingTool directly in to my mail body or as attachment.

  13. Editing attachment and re-attaching to same email

    I am a lawyer and I receive document which I need to edit and send back.

    I need a feature where I can open the attachment , edit it and re-attach to same email by which it had come to me and reply to the sender.

  14. Introduce the option''get notified'' for a general email address .

    Giving the real example:

    I work in a company where I have my own domain email address, but I also have access to the general '' sales@ '' address; we are a couple of people there and I would like to get notified when there's a new email received.

  15. Show folders with unread messages at the top of the list

    Allow user to sort folders so that folders with unread email appear before folders with no unread email. Alternatively, create a "Smart Favorites" setting that lets me choose whether a Favorite folder should always be shown in the Favorites section or only if it contains unread email.

    I have a lot of rules that filter bulk email into folders, but then sometimes I forget to scroll down to see new unread email.

  16. Confirmation on more than X users on CC

    I think Outlook should ask for confirmation when a email is sent to more than five recipients on CC. It is very usual for Outlook users to make mistakes for distribution mails and put the recipient list in Carbon Copy instead of Blind Carbon Copy with the breach on Data Protection laws that this supposes.

  17. Enable deletion of Auto-Complete entries

    My idea is quite simple: Microsoft is aware that its Empty Auto-Completion option simply does not work. Deselecting the Auto-Completion function under Options only "hides" Auto-Completion entries - it DOES NOT DELETE them, even after the Empty option is used. Microsoft has been aware of this problem for over five or more years, but has chosen to ignore it. Are consumers actually listened to? How many Office 365 users of Outlook Mail know that Microsoft "saves" up to 1,000 previous email addresses? Talk about privacy! Apple does the same thing with its email, only it never deletes any email addresses…

  19. When replying to an email, warn us if there's another response (already or in the making) and the ability to merge if there is one.

    It is quite irksome when conversation gets lost when a response diverges the conversation.
    Before sending a response, prompt users when there's already a response if someone else, responding to the same conversation, has already clicked the send button on their response plus give an opportunity to copy over my latest response as to the latest email.

  20. Outlook "To, CC & BCC" field should highlight any email address if entered more than once.

    While sending an email, we sometimes have an unusually large number of recipients. In the "To, CC and BCC" fields, Outlook should highlight any email address that is being repeated in the same email's "To, CC or BCC" fields.
