  2. Provide an option or feature to show Conversation sizes along with single Item sizes in Microsoft Outlook 2016

    Mailbox Cleanup today provides the option of viewing individual item (message) sizes.

    To take "bulk manual cleanup" to the next level, I would propose that SIZES of entire conversations be displayed so that the user can be more efficient in deleting huge conversations. Provision of an option or feature to show Conversation sizes along with single Item sizes in Microsoft Outlook 2016 would make it more efficient and productive in handling emails as well as in the cleanup process. Also inclusion of the same feature for sort-by in the message view would be an added benefit.

  3. Support outgoing phone calls using Skype (not just Microsoft telephony)

    Outlook currently allows you to initiate a call to someone in your contact list using Microsoft telephony. It would be nice to be able to use Skype to place a call.

  5. fix bug can't delete folder with \t in name

    Can add a folder with the text "Reac\t"
    But can't delete said mistyped folder as it contains an escape sequence and (I presume) can't be found when searching for the index of the folder to delete.
    There is also no error message when delete fails.

  6. ibm-Layout for Outlook-Newcomers

    Deutsch: Bei mir an der Arbeitsstelle ist das Unternehmen jetzt von ibm auf Outlook umgestiegen. Viele Kollegen kommen mit der Umstellung nicht so gut klar. Wäre es möglich das Layout und Design von ibm zu adaptieren und auf Outlook als mögliches Design zu übernehmen? Man könnte an den ibm-Entwicker appellieren, ob er für Werbung oder für Geld zustimmt.

    Mit freundlichen Grüßen
    Lukas Baumgarten, geb. 1994

  8. Frustrating that when I email someone I regularly email, it doesn't auto populate. Instead, I get people I rarely email.

    Frustrating that when I email someone I regularly email, it doesn't auto populate. Instead, I get people I rarely email. You don't always want to make someone a Contact. And that's another story. Shouldn't their email address and name auto populate into the contact. You have to take steps to insert their email and name.

    The “identifier bar” (my term) in outlook calendar has always been in a non-changeable contrasting color so that the user could easily and quickly identify the current day on a busy calendar page. This bar was about ½ “ in width and ran across the day date on the calendar page. I

    n Outlook 2016 this feature is now reduced in size (making it less easy to see) AND it is no longer in a contrasting color. It is now in the same color as the calendar itself. You have made this feature near useless. Why fix it if It's…

  12. Have a meeting between two people always show the other person's name.

    If there is a meeting between Joe and Sarah - let Joe see 'Meeting with Sarah' and Sarah see 'Meeting with Joe'. Sometimes the subject of the meeting is important, but often the person whom you are meeting is more important.

    Maybe introduce a @OtherPerson type variable that can be used in a meeting title, which shows the other person's name.

  13. Возможность сделать авторассылку

    Возможность делать авторассылку с одним и тем же текстом и вложением одним и тем же получателям через определенные интервалы времени. Пишу, так как не удалось найти эту функцию в меню аутлука и в интернете.

  16. Out of Office when working in different time zone in Outlook 2016

    When working in a very different time zone, we want to set an out of office message for just those hours, so that people at the office we normally work at know why it takes us until late in the afternoon to reply.
    Currently, this requires me either having the out of office permanently on even when we are in the office, or remembering to turn on/off the out of look every day that we are working in a different time zone.

  17. Need a wildcard capability for trusted email sources / TLDs

    Sites like mailchimp generate a unique address for each mail sites but from the same TLD. Need a way to accept all email from a TLDs rather than have to treat each subdomain as a separate site.

  18. Automated Emails

    Add an option to automate email messages. I would use this to send periodic reminders to clients without having to think about it. Probably useful for many other purposes.
