  1. Provide a setting of "Not from sender" when creating rules in Microsoft Outlook 2016

    Provide a setting of "Not from sender" when creating rules in Microsoft Outlook 2016 as it would enable us to handle emails from spammers/unwanted email addresses more effectively and we can filter phishing senders.

  3. Add an option to DLs to not allow messages where DL is on BCC

    It would be great as a large DL owner to mark the DL not to accept any messages where the DL was BCCed instead of added to the To or CC fields.

  4. Provide a feature to automatically disable email preview pop up when screen sharing is on in Microsoft Outlook 2016

    There are several occasions where there are email notifications and a preview pop-up appears from the screen of the organizer. There are instances where these emails are confidential and should not be seen by the audience is calls/meetings. I was hoping for outlook functionality to automatically disable notification previews while Skype (for business) screensharing is on.

  7. When creating a new Skype Meeting, don't block editing the invite until the Skype Meeting info is added.

    Provide an option to start editing the invite, then populate the "Join Skype Meeting" info whenever it gets it rather than blocking the editing options. Bonus if it doesn't let me send the invite until that info arrives in Microsoft Outlook 2016.
    Also, when someone having editor permissions to my calendar creates a meeting or appointment in my calendar, i want to receive an email right away that ‘this particular person has created meeting for you'.

    Provide a feature to enable users to create own contact list and send it to specific people in Microsoft Outlook 2016 or shared contacts and adding an option to add Skype would be an added benefit. Also enable users to save groups created in Skype to be saved as Group Contacts in Microsoft Outlook 2016.

  11. Do not let the Outlook Client update the value of a time zone on its server while editing the profile in Outlook Client

    Provide a feature that could distinguish the types of mailboxes and, for a room mailbox, do not let the Outlook Client update a time zone in Outlook Client. The location of room mailboxes is fixed, and thus its time zone does not need to be updated.

  14. Safety tips need to be rethought in the Outlook client

    Safety tips currently appear within the body of the message. This makes it easy to imagine that a malicious user will simply format the body of a message to appear to have a safety tip, and phish the user to a supposedly 'safe' site that is actually malicious. Please consider moving the safety tips to a protected area and/or removing all links from the tip itself.

  17. add alt sign in options to "Sign In" "Sorry, but we're having trouble signing you in. We received a bad request."

    instead of just posting a message, when having trouble signing in, offer an option to retype your login / password, or anything besides the message "The server has terminated the request due to excessive request rate. Please wait a few seconds and try again."

  20. Printing format changes for Calendar

    Older version would allow calendar to print only one full month i.e. Apr 1-Apr 30; new version pulls in last week of March and First week of May no matter how you set options. Mini calendar at top of one month print is wrong. Would be nice also on screen to visually separate months more clearly.
