  1. Disabled COM Add-ins window resizeable

    The "Disabled COM Add-ins" window is not resizeable in Outlook 2013, making some text truncated, and the user must use the horizontal scroll bar to see all the content. This is clumsy.

  2. Base font default template for Outlook 365 version 1708 build 8431.2079 dox matrix print

    At some point went from a 'rich' look like this page to 1980's 'dot matrix' look and I hate it. The support person could not change the font default for email account/file folders and messages. The only font change is for Inbox display. This also extends into MS Word, MS Access and Edge pages. Reference case #1400374270 10/5/17.

    Support indicated the 365 product design engineers are the ones that select the base, unchangeable fonts, and that is what we customers have to live with.

    Most of what I see looks like a knock-off version that is poor quality.

  3. attachment security

    Please stop resetting the security for opening attachments in Outlook with EVERY update. I intentionally trust and allow Excel, Word, PDF documents to be opened without having to OK the pop up notification. But after every update -- usually once each week or two -- this "security" setting is turned back on -- and I have to go through the steps to allow these files again.

  4. Lizenz

    Guten Abend
    heute Abend hat mich ein Microsoft-Mitarbeiter angerufen und über eine Stunde, nur Englisch, bequatscht.
    Sein Name: Joe ...son Telefonnummer: 001 1 1084 5530 0354 8824
    Er behauptete, dass meine Lizenz nicht mehr aktive sei und bot mir für CHF 5,-- einen lenslanger Update an.
    Stimmt seine Aussage?
    Grüsse Urs Gardi.l

  5. Setting up recurring meetings on a surface hub when the time slot is already blocked for one week.

    In the given scenario:
    When trying to set up a daily meeting on 3 Surface hubs that are in different offices.
    The recurring meeting is set for every day.

    Setting this up works fine for 2 of the surface hub and we receive an email from each surface hubs confirming that the meeting was accepted. However, for the one surface hub, we get the following email reply:

    "Declined All: Daily Meeting"

    "Your meeting request was declined because there are conflicts.
    Time of Conflicting Meeting
    Monday, September 11, 2017
    [... and other dates in the same week]"

    The message is basically…

  7. "Low bandwidth" mode

    Create a mode for situations where you have low bandwidth (in-flight and public Wi-Fi, for example) so the application doesn't become unresponsive by trying to sync shared calendars, index searches etc.

  10. Selected sender automatic highlighting in inbox

    Selected sender automatic highlighting in inbox

    When you click on an email all the emails from the same sender in the inbox highlight - this is a little like syntax highlighting, for example Notepad++ when you select a word, that word will highlight wherever it is found in the current file.
    This would save searching or looking for associated emails - you would just scroll the inbox and all mails from the same sender would be highlighted.
    It would be even better if you had 2 highlights - one for sender name and one for subject.

  15. Notification to find common meeting time in Outlook 2016

    It would be awesome if Outlook could detect, based on the content of emails, that a group of people would like to meet (this sounds like a fairly straightforward ML training problem). It could then give a popup notification that would direct the user to a workflow:

    1. Display the weekly calendars of all people CC'd on the email stacked one above the other. Bonus points if the user can add/remove folks from the meeting. Allow me to click to following weeks if necessary.

    2. Suggest times (via highlighting) that (nearly) everyone is free. Bonus points if we can rearrange…

  16. 16.0.8625.2121 isn't pikcing up day light saving

    16.0.8625.2121 isn't pikcing up day light saving. I have the screen shots to show it. Windows shows the correct Seattle time, Outlook is an hour behind.

    It would be helpful when after replying to a Red Flagged Email for follow up if one could Undo the Red Flag so it would fallback it to the inbox where it was originally sorted by whichever designations for sorting would apply.

  18. Customize Outlook 2016 Bottom ToolBar; enter commands (not Ribbon which can be done)

    Customize Outlook 2016 Bottom ToolBar; enter commands (not Ribbon which can be done)

    Also, Improve toolbar customization options, so that a user could remove buttons he/she does not need (e.g., remove enterprise-specific buttons if he/she is a individual consumer).

  20. Enable 'Open In New Window' for Folders in the Compact Navigation bar

    Right clicking currently has 'Open in New Window' greyed out. It would be great to be able to open Folders in a new window in the same way as right clicking on Mail or Calendar in the compact navigation bar.
