  1. Send meeting updates only to those who accepted?

    Even in Outlook 2016, it's still only possible to send meeting updates to -all- recipients but much more logical and user friendly is the default option to only send to ricipients who accepted the meeting request; or at least skip those who already declined the meeting request. Please include as default feature.

  4. Add the ability to acknowledge an out of office before sending an email without actually receiving the out of office message in response

    I love the new feature that shows people are out of office before sending an email. However, I am still going to send the email, and I do not want to receive an out of office email in response because all I do is delete it. In short, make an option so I can acknowledge a recipient is out of office and still send it without receiving the reply.

  5. Removing folders

    Give us the ability to remove folders we don't use. Many of us do not use the "group", "conversations" or various other folders that Outlook automatically installs and will let us delete. Users should be able to remove any folder they don't want.

  6. Why do you keep deleting my submission?

    You have deleted my submission three times, but I have no idea why. You have my email address - can you let me know what I am doing wrong, please?

  8. Under 'Contact Attendees' of a meeting, add the option 'Email attendees who did not answer'.

    Outlook offers the option to send an email to all attendees of a meeting. It would be great to have the possibility to send an email only to attendees who have declined, or to those who have not yet answered. This would avoid unnecessary reminders to those who have already answered.

  11. Please implement the. NST document to set the default path

    Hi all, Most of the emails we manage have to join and subscribe to multiple groups because of their work needs, Generated. NST documents stored in the C disk directory will produce more than 20G of occupation, and we use for some of our colleagues to use the cloud system, C disk space itself is not too large, if you can not move to custom directories, such as: When setting up messages by default to the D disk, or we really do not, or even use the modified registry to achieve storage location more Change.
    That often colleagues C disk…

  12. Bring back Save but don't send update in Outlook.

    There used to be three options when you made a change to an Outlook meeting.

    For years I've been able to save without sending an update when the only change is in the notes section of the meeting. I'd like this feature brought back, please.

  13. Add a note or comment to an incoming email - to pop up like in excel

    Add a note to an incoming email. Just like excel has the ability to add a
    comment and a red symbol marks an attached comment. So for an example, a new email received that the sender replaces. I'd like to add a comment like "don't bother with this attachment see new email" - rather than deleting or filing the email in a different folder.

  15. New dark Office Theme

    Would be nice to see a new dark Office theme with colour accents like the colourful theme has. Also, having separate theme settings for the different Office products would be nice since I don't necessarily want dark mode on Word but really like it on Outlook.

  16. Meetings status notification should not be in the sender language

    Notifications that a meeting has been cancelled or postponed or details have changed should not be in the sender language. Example: Meeting called "Team sync" is cancelled (called off) and the one cancelling the meeting is from Germany. Me as an English speaker with default language for Outlook as English, I would like and expect that an email explaining that this meeting is cancelled would have a title like this "Cancelled: Team sync" and not what I get now "Abgesagt: Team sync". As these notifications are not really a simple email I would expect this kind of functionality to be…

  17. Allow the Contact General View from email address right click drop down.

    Old "General View" of a contact instead of a "contact card". Can that be added to the right click drop down over email address?
