  1. Sending Email using mailto: function in Microsoft Outlook 2016

    Option of sending an email using Microsoft Outlook 2016 using the mailto: option when Microsoft Outlook 2016 is closed. At present, the email is stored in the Outbox and is only sent once we open the Microsoft Outlook 2016 and the send and receive is completed thereby delaying the email to be sent out otherwise. It should remain open and shall only close once the email has been sent.

  3. Allow you to disable signatures on Quick Step created messages in quick step config

    This slightly overlaps with these to ideas/requests at the bottom - I have a quick step that I use to forward messages onto a system that automatically parses the messages; I would like to be able to create a quick step that when I forward a message to mailbox@company.tld it doesn't include the default signature but allows me to still add some standard covering working (tags to assign ownership, update status etc). This was just about workable in 2013 as you could at least right click on the signature that was added and remove it, since upgrading to 2016 this…

  5. Option to specify exact date and time for sending an email in Microsoft Outlook 2016.

    When we use the delayed emails feature for Outlook 2016, it has an option for not sending the email before a specified date. It'll be better if we can specify the exact date (and, if possible, time) on which to send an email. Or an option to automatically send recurrent emails at a specified frequency in Microsoft Outlook 2016 would be an added benefit.

  6. Alerts when potentially breaking rules by adding Distribution Lists to BCC

    Adding Distribution Lists in BCC breaks everyone’s Microsoft Outlook rules and all those emails spam the Inbox in Business or Corporate environment. It gets even worse, when someone is soliciting for personal sales, events by adding distribution groups/lists of their choice to BCC. BCC itself is a great feature for specific scenarios but there are also scenarios where it can be abused. It would be nice if Microsoft Outlook 2016 can be designed to alert the user(s) that they are going to potentially break everyone’s inbox rules if any Distribution Lists\Groups are added intentionally or accidentally to BCC. This will…

    Option to display the number of recipients in any outgoing email in Microsoft Outlook 2016
    An option to show the number of recipients (including To, CC and BCC) in any outgoing email in Microsoft Outlook 2016 would be beneficial in keeping the number of recipients within the permissible limits.

  9. Option to Record audio file from message ribbon in Microsoft Outlook 2016 message

    You can record audio in OneNote. It would be great if an option is there to record your message and send it as an email. Additionally, the ability to record responses to emails received can be beneficial as well.

  10. Allow a message to be flagged when composing a reply or forwarding a message in the preview pane.

    Currently when you reply to or forward a message, if you compose it in the preview pane, the follow-up flag button is missing, you have to pop out the message in order to flag it. Please add the flag button to the options available for a message being composed in the preview pane.

  12. Add Pinnable locations to the "recent" documents attachments Menu

    The new attachments menu in Outlook 2016 is one of the best bits of the product, not only saving me loads of time by adding files I was last working on, but also making it easy to send links instead of files.

    For me the only thing it's lacking is some pins so that I can go and grab attachments from pinned locations (Just like the say the Open Document pane works on Word/Excel/PowerPoint

  17. Email count by group heading

    I would like to see how many emails are in the groupings I select. For example, number of emails by Date grouping (today, yesterday...); or number of emails by sender in From grouping; or number of emails by Subject grouping.

  18. Syntax highlighting for programming languages

    Syntax highlighting for programming languages would be awesome. I am always pasting code in emails to colleagues. I typically have to copy the code first into a new document in something like Notepad++, set the language, then choose a copy as HTML option, in order to have the code look sane in the email.

    It would be very nice if I could just set the language for a text block and paste the code and outlook would colorize it for me.

    While that would be enough, it'd be great if outlook could understand those code blocks on the other end…

  19. Could photos attached to an email appear as thumbnail versions of themselves and Option to increase thumbnail size

    I cannot easily identify any particular photo when each appears on the email as a 'cloud' icon along with its identity no. Would it not be easier to see each as a thumbnail of itself?

    Also,there should be an option to increase thumbnail size in Outlook please. I use outlook to review security snapshots and a larger image without the need to click on each attachment would be very useful.

  20. Custom signatures not using selected font color in email body

    This is more of an issue instead of feature feedback, but ever since upgrading Office 2016 from 2013, my users have an issue. We setup separate signatures "New" and "Reply-Forward" emails that have different font colors. So even though our "Reply" signature has the font to a specific color, as soon as you start typing in the body of the email, the color is the default black and not what the actual signature color is.
