    BUG REPORT : As per Support Case Number 1427065012 there is a problem using Send to Mail Recipient for a photo when outlook is open. comes back with an error saying the feature is not available when an older version of Outlook is running.
    Support thought this was something to do with the Microsoft Outlook Communication Process.

  4. Outlook Autocorrect only detects the first word of an email address. This has changed as until recently it would suggest an address

    After a recent auto upgrade my Office 365 Outlook email typing in TO field auto correct only finds the first word. Until recently I could type, for instance 'Alice' and would have info@Alice... pop up. Now I need to type "info..." and pick from a long list.
    I suspect this is an unwanted side affect from the last upgrade May 2018.

    Am I missing something? Can it be fixed?

  5. Folder/File system in Outlook 2016

    Incoming emails move to existing Folder in Outlook trought a search engine which allready exists on the mobile app but not on the Notebook ablication.

    This would be faster when I can say "move to ..." and Outlook gives me search Resultat about existing Folder with the Name.

    This should be a Kind of tray System for incoming mails.

  6. S/MIME Differentation b/w attachemend and digital signature in folders, e.g. Inbox

    When receiving signed emails (using S/MIME), currently Outlook will always show the attachemend icon in e.g. the inbox. though there is no attachement to the email (except the signature).
    As this is very disturbing for searching/overlooking emails, this icon should only be shown if a real attachemend is available. The icon for signed emails is enough to see that an email was digitally signed.

  9. Don't want User/Voice at all. DO very much want MUCH more clear documentation of Outlook options, address books, contact lists, fonts, etc.

    Don't want User/Voice at all. DO very much want MUCH more clear documentation of Outlook options, address books, contact lists, fonts, etc. Need option to save all such things to a text file, CSV, name/value pairs, XML, or some such easy to read. Put comments in the file to make it easy to read. Same for options for Excel graphs. Have one text file with the full option tree rooted at START; I will search it with my favorite text editor. Generally text file input as an alternative to GUIs. I build such text files for myself and work with…

  12. The old Excel/Outlook bug

    How about fixing the long-time bug where viewing an Excel spreadsheet in the reading pane of Outlook freezes Outlook if you try to scroll with the mouse wheel?

  13. Contextual date autocomplete

    Date autocomplete lacks context to give better suggestions. Today -- Thursday, April 26, 2018 -- if I type in "Friday, April ", it will let me autocomplete by pressing 'Enter', but it will autoomplete "April 26, 2018" when I really want "April 27, 2018".

    If I type, "Monday, April ", I would want it to suggest "April 30, 2018" for this coming Monday. Similarly, it suggests "April 26, 2018."

  17. Envelope icon should respect focus assist

    There should be an option to have the envelope icon not be shown when focus assist is enabled. It's a big distraction and causes one to want to check email if it appears. I've had to simply disable it altogether.

  18. turn off junk filter

    Outlook especially with the new beta has been removing a lot of settings and ways to customize your email. I've had a terrible experience after terrible experience with the junk filter. I have lost important emails, I wasted lots of time trying to bypass it or turn it off with rules only to learn its impossible, etc. So please give the option to disable it or at least bypass it, and keep more advanced settings.

  19. Wrong calendar opens when a previous Shared Mailbox's name is now a Group

    When opening a calendar of a Office 365 group using Manage Calendars > Open Calendar > From Address book, AND the Group's name is the same as a previous Shared Mailbox, the wrong calendar appears, causing confusion.
    This seems more like a bug, and was reviewed with Microsoft Support.
