  2. When I post a link into an e-mail to a document in OneDrive/SharePoint, Outlook should tell me if the person on the to-line has permissions

    When I post a link into an e-mail to a document in OneDrive/SharePoint, Outlook should tell me if the person on the to-line has permissions. This will avoid the annoying back and forth that always happens where people need to ask for permission to the link after its sent and it makes Office appear more collaborative.

  4. Update folder sort for numeric alpha

    The numeric/alpha sort is done incorrectly.

    My folders all start with address numbers. when the sort, they are sorted from lowest to highest on the 1st number. The correct way to sort is by length of number then the number itself. It is done correctly on all other Microsoft products. My file folders on one drive sort correctly. I have matching folders in outlook and they are incorrect. They should match up.

  6. Instant Search popup should contain a link to where to find more information

    I click the button for Instant Search. A popup shows up telling me that Windows Search service is not installed. It is not clear what it means to "see the Help included with your version of Microsoft Windows". The popup should be clearer, and/or a link should be in the popup for more information of how to set it up.

    Provide an option to stop email traffic(incoming and outgoing emails) when in a meeting in Microsoft Outlook 2016 to avoid distraction in the meeting. It would be great if I could use a checkbox to set an appointment to be ‘quiet time’ for it’s duration.

  15. UPN or Primary address Automation

    Whenever a user's UPN, Primary address changes the outlook profiles remain using the old UPN or Primary address showing up as the Sent from by default an option for select FROM to change the new Primary address exists on a per email or per reply basis. Why not make this change an automated feature across board? when the Primary address changes Outlook is unable to pick up this change unless you create a new outlook profile and add your account using the new address. Will you ever make this automated?

  20. Support cache all for large mailboxes

    I would like the option of caching more data. Now that the E3 size is increased to 100GB the local ost is still supposed to be kept below 10GB (kb2759052). I would like this flat file architecture to be replaced with something that can support a large offline cache if users want it.
