  2. Provide a way for editing e-mail address in contacts: now you can just replace it

    Sometime I have to modify a badly entered e-mail address. Now you can just cancel and replace with the correct one.
    It would be helpful/nice to have the possibility to edit it directly without the need for an external text editor.

  3. Outlook AutoText and Quick Parts doesn't work with diacritic characters

    Outlook AutoText and Quick Parts doesn't work with diacritic characters.
    If I use an å, ä or ö in a Autotext or Quick Parts phrase it doesn't work.
    For example, the Swedish sentence for With best regards is "Med vänlig hälsning" and it doesn't work, but if I write the same in Danish which is "Med venlig hilsen" it works perfectly no matter what proofing language has been set.

  5. A pop up box login does not prevent privacy breach. Can still see inbox and emails without signing in.

    Not having a blank page login feature when starting up Office Outlook app in Windows 10 means that anyone trying to see information for the account is still able to see the inbox even though there is a pop up box asking for user to log in. Not secure enough.

  6. Provide an option to move control "up" (instead of "down") the email list when Moving/Deleting an email (as is available in OWA)

    When you take an action on an email (like Moving or Deleting it), control shifts to the next email "down" in the list, and previews it. If you're like me and like to go through your email First-In-First-Out, you always end up previewing an email you've already read. I'd like the option to shift control "up" to the next email so that I can preview a newer email I haven't seen yet. This option exists in Outlook Web App (OWA), in Options > Mail > Layout > Reading Pane > Choose what happens when you move or delete an item.

  11. I just want the reading pane not to flash after sending an email.

    Whenever I send an email or reply to one, the reading pane on outlook commences to flash on and off on some received emails.

  13. Add a search capability to the Blocked Senders and Safe Senders displays so that we can easily find entries being blocked

    Sometimes we make an error and add an e-mail to the blocked senders. However we do not always remember the email address which we need because the email addresses are listed alphabetically. BUt often we know a string and could easily find it if we can search. But now it is very hard to look through all the addresses, 1 at a time.

  14. Don't automaticaly add .eml files to Inbox

    If I open a .eml file in Windows 10 Outlook 2016, it is automatically added into the Inbox folder. This is really annoying and not the behaviour I want just because I open an .eml file. It should be noted that this only seems to happen when there are Add-Ins enabled, but I don't know why. I have written an add in that never has the New Email event fired or anything and yet it's mere presence in Outlook surfaces this problem!!

  15. Bring back the ability to change the wording in the dropdown boxes

    Older outlooks had a way to change or add the dropdowns boxes under the "Phone Number" Section. This was great because I deal with call signs and a lot of other crazy stuff that would fit there. Also now days people have more than one cell/mobile phone (Please add that too)

  16. Cut and paste follow-up appointmenst or paste them to other accounts

    It would be awesome to cut and paste similar appointments to other dates and or other calendars. Especially if the main info is the same just a new date.

  18. Direct access to e-mail folder

    When I open a .pst file, I ask you the possibility to get direct access to the folder, avoiding to open "file di dati outlook" and "posta in arrivo" (or "posta inviata"). When I open a .pst file the folder is as follow:

    + file di dati outlook

    then I click on "+" and the status is this:

    - file di dati outlook
    posta eliminata
    + posta in arrivo
    cartella ricerche

    then I click on "+" beside posta in arrivo and the result is the following:

    - file di dati outlook
    posta eliminata
    posta in arrivo
    FOLDERXYZ (folder where effectively…

  19. Web add-ins in Outlook 2016 do not work as expected

    In Outlook 2016 I have some template web add-ins, they work fine in Outlook Online, but not in Outlook 2016 When I open a new email, I have the button above (e.g. Template Phrases or iWriter), but they are grayed out.
    When I save the mail as a draft and then open it again, the web add-ins suddenly work.
    Since I have this with all add_ins that can be used with new mails, I suspect an Outlook bug here.
