  2. Replace right click functionality when calendar is part of the email view

    Replace right click functionality when calendar is part of your email view. This functionality existed in previous Outlook versions. When viewing email, We used to be able to right click a visible meeting and have the option to "reply all", "reply", "forward", etc. Now, if an email necessitates an action to a visible calendar activity, we have to move from the email page and open the calendar page.

  3. Recursive export to csv

    In order to analyse the emails I get, I wanted to export them all to a script-friendly format (namely, csv) but found out that csv export is only possible for a single directory (While pst recursive export is possible).

    Could you please allow recursive csv export as well?

  5. Fix the issue PLEASE of when you select more than one Contact and click email to multiple, it picks up the email addresses in Email2 and 3.

    Please fix the issue of the fact that when you select more than one contact, and then click email, it is NOT including the email addresses in Email2 and Email3. It worked in every other version, but not in the 2016. Desperately need that function to work properly.

  7. Outlook as Message Centre for all platforms

    Outlook for ALL kinds of messages on computer. E-Mail becomes less and less important. Outlook should be able to handle messages from Facebook, Whats App, Twitter, Linked In ... etc.

  10. Prior state hold/setting hold

    I would love if when I close Outlook it would preserve where I left off like that of Edge. In Edge it remembers what pages/tabs I had open previous and returns me to the same point when I re-open the app. Often in Outlook I will open multiple email messages as a way to remind me that day that I need to respond. If my devices battery dies or I close Outlook I can't remember which emails I had open.

  13. Provide an option to move messages based on Age in Microsoft Outlook 2016 rather than date

    Provide an option to move messages based on Age in Microsoft Outlook 2016 rather than date for easier management of an email for reference. Currently you can archive emails or move emails and it would be beneficial to make the rule to move any email based on time period to a specified folder.

  16. Tagging a recipient @mentions should be highlighted in reading pane

    If I type a long email and tag a contact with a question or statement further down in the email, when they receive the email, the line(s) where I tagged that person should be what they see in the message summary in their inbox. This calls their attention to the email and lets them know they are being asked or told something directly.

  19. Clarification of options' descriptions on Send/Receive Group form.

    I'd like to make two suggestions about the Send/Receive Groups form's presentation:

    1. The bottom section is titled "When Outlook is Offline" (ie. Alt+S+W). To make it clearer what that actually means, I suggest that be changed to "When Outlook is set to work in Offline Mode". The existing "When Outlook is Offline" causes confusion because people think that means when the LAN or WAN (ie. Internet for most people) is down.

    2. "Include this group in send/receive (F9)" could be better understood as "Include this group in when doing a manual send/receive (ie. F9)"
