  1. Preventing email recipients forwarding and/or adding recipients to email threads

    Outlook should have an option that allows an email sender to prevent the recipient(s) from either forwarding the thread or adding additional recipient(s) in CC/BCC when replying.

    If needed, the original email sender could nominate additional delegates who could add additional recipients to the thread.

    This option would assist with Privileged and/or Confidential threads from being incorrectly shared.

    • next/previous item

      Bring back the next/previous item buttons within email conversation to go to the next/previous email reply within that conversation.

      This button was available previously like in outlook 2007.

            • 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.

                      • 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…

                            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.

                                        • Provide a feature to allow PowerPoint Presentations to be added to emails in Microsoft Outlook 2016

                                          Provide a feature to allow PowerPoint Presentations to be added to emails in Microsoft Outlook 2016 in the e-mail message body and add notes beside each slides. Also enable users to create visual impact in e-mail rather than long endless e-mails by allowing GIFS and Video to be added and played while reading e-mail.
