      • Provide an option to replace a contact's notes field with an embedded onenote page in all Outlook apps on all devices.

        Outlook.com and all major mobile devices presently crop contact notes fields down to 1024 characters while Outlook itself allows for notes fields of arbitrary length.

        This results in lost data when synchronizing to these devices.

        Replace the Outlook Contact Notes on all Outlook platforms with an embedded Onenote notebook page. (Outlook, Outlook.com, Outlook for Android and iOS, etc.)

        This will support cross-platform synchronized notes of arbitrarily length without risk of data loss, without placing extra strain on the outlook.com database servers. Presently the only service which offers large note synchronization is DejaOffice, and DejaOffice's sync with outlook is extremely unreliable.

        • Anti-phishing email rule improvements - better message rule creation tool

          a Better method for creating message rules - one especially suited for anti-spam/anti-phishing is badly needed.
          1) let us drag & drop an email to a toolbar icon or somewhere that will automatically take the "offending" message and allow us to tailor a message rule based directly on the contents of that message - and then allow us to tailor a rule from there with the message data as default items.
          2) The main idea here is to make it quick & easy to VISUALLY create custom filters like: if it says it's from my friend "Joe Smith", but it's…

          • internal only comment ability for each email

            A way to add comments/notes to emails that the other parties can not see. Like we do on excel. I handle multiple things and need a way to get a quick refresher.

            • I'd love to be able to add notes for myself to emails when I file them. Something that would not forward if I reply later.

              Something like sticky note that you could attach to an email, but would not forward with the email when you reply. (for user's eyes only).

              Would be especially helpful if I could attach relevant files when filing emails (w/o sending a new email) or attach/connect other email chains so I could easily keep all relevant information together.

                      • Business Contact Manager SBB files to Outlook 2016

                        Found out that 8 years of BCM history literally unusable in Outlook 2016. To make matters worse, MSFT tech support uninstalled Outlook 2010 w/BCM; therefore, I have no recourse. Dead in the water. What?!? Serious breach of customer service. This should be an easy, no brainer, conversion to the new program. Thoughts???

                            • shortcut key for saving a note

                              Add shortcut key to save and close a note in Outlook. If this is an available option, I would like to know - I haven't been able to find it. I like using shortcut keys and this option would make typing notes quickly and saving to go on to something else quicker.
