  2. Outlook Deleted Items option to sort by date/time deleted in Microsoft Outlook 2016

    Allow a sort option in the "Deleted Items" folder to sort by the date/time the item was deleted, rather than the original send date. This would allow easy location of recently-deleted items.

  5. Colour the favourites section for mailboxes - allow us to choose the background colour

    Colour the favourites section for mailboxes - allow us to choose the background colour for each item added into the favourites section - this enables the user to quickly scan mailboxes rather than all of them and picking the wrong one

  6. Redirect email button for misdirected emails

    I'm in a large organization where there is typically at least one person that shares a name with me. I occasionally get emails intended for the other person. If I simply add the likely intended recipient, I'm still on the email thread. I'm still open to receiving mails via Reply All as I need to be explicitly removed by one of the other people on the thread in their reply. A redirect button that effectively allows me to replace myself from the intended recipient would be useful in these situations.

    There is similar feature request already made which is effectively…

  7. Include Mail Merge Features in Insert Tab when writing a new message

    Include mail merge features without having to integrate with Word or Excel. You can include the mailings tab when on a new message window. Or could you at least give the option to "insert" first name on the heading for each recipient. We really need more mail merge integrations...its year 2020

  9. Microsoft Outlook - allow Reading Pane settings to apply to ALL mailboxes. Currently this has to be set mailbox by mailbox.

    Microsoft Outlook - allow View->Reading Pane settings to apply to ALL mailboxes. Currently this has to be set mailbox by mailbox. Time consuming.

  10. Provide an option to share Quick Steps with other Outlook users

    Option to send a quick step to an Outlook user that would give them the ability to save the Quick Step for their own use.

    For example, if I have a Quick Step to send a new message to my secretary and Cc my office manager, it would be beneficial to have the ability to send the Quick Step to a coworker so that they can utilize the same format without having to manually create their own Quick Step. This would help avoid grammatical errors and the chance of entering an invalid email address.

  12. Email summariser

    Working in corporate, sometimes emails are voluminous. I thought that an optional function at the end of the email could be 'summarise email' Yes/No and outlook can create the main points of the long email (could even be a graphic/animated function as opposed to merely text)

  13. 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

  14. Embed Office Form in the Outlook E-mail

    Embed Office Form in the Outlook E-mail so that when users receive the e-mail, they will not have a second thought to click on the survey link, they will already see that there are only a few and easy-to-answer questions in the survey through the body of the e-mail, and answer it right away because the embedded form is interactive already.

    Advantage: Prevent users from parking the survey then forget that it's there because of the low priority. Presenters can get enough feedbacks through the survey.

  15. Double Click to Open Embedded Images in Photo Editor/Viewer App

    You used to be able to double click an embedded image to open it in the photo editor/viewer app of your choosing. Currently, the only way to do this is to save the image to your computer and then open it. Not only is this an extra step to open the image, but we then need to go back and locate the file to delete it from the computer when finished.

  19. Add contact to favorites and get email alerts/notifications when they send emails

    Only get alerts or notifications when specific people email you. Meaning that you get zero alerts/notifications unless your boss/director/chief emails you. Everyone else is muted. But you get to star or VIP the contact.

  20. Create and provide a Send Aware button to the Outlook ribon or Admin options

    Prompts users before sending an attachment. This option will allow for a second chance to confirm that the e-mail and attachment are addressed to the intended recipient and prevent sending protected information to a wrong recipient. There are aftermarket products with this offering, however, I think it would be beneficial to have a native or organic option. Standss and TechHit are some examples.
