  1. Ability to replace attachment filename characters not allowed in SharePoint

    When saving multiple attachments from Outlook into SharePoint, a single file with an illegal character will interrupt the saving process. Suggesting a dialog box that shows this error and gives the user the opportunity to re-name files before Explorer stops the operation. Could also work for filenames that are too long.

  2. Provide option to suppress the dialog box

    Provide an option to suppress the dialog box described below

    Office Insider Version 1805 (Build 9327.2006 Click-to-Run) {32 Bit} on x64 W10 Insider 17661.1001

    Each time I start Outlook a dialog box pops up asking me to log into a work or school account. I have neither, so this is an annoyance. Clicking on the red X cancels it, without any apparent ill effect. I haven't found an option to turn it off. This dialog only appears in Outlook, not Excel, Powerpoint, Publisher or Word.

  5. How about fixing all the tiny bugs in Outlook.

    Go through the application as if you were a user performing simple tasks such as flaging emails for tasks, editing calendar appointments, writing draft emails.

    And then, this is the clever bit - fix all the dam issues!

  7. Change the calender view back when viewing invitations.

    I want to be able to see the whole day when I am viewing an invitation. I can't find a way to change the view back to the way it was.

  9. recent people

    Recent people list is limited to 5 entries which are not the most used or most recent.

    Allow to search or expand when keep typing to find the ones that you have actually sent to e-mails recently.

  11. Please change default cache period to all

    Currently outlook exchange cache mode is set to one year and people who are not aware of this setting are thinking that they lost the old email ,it would be really good if it is set to all by default.

  12. I make jobs to do list on a page in OneNote, it automatically populates & updates a morning reminder in my Outlook.

    I make a jobs to do list on a page in OneNote, it automatically populates & updates a morning reminder in my Outlook. Each morning, on my way to work, I'm going to get my list of things to do pushed to me at the time I set it for. When I mark as complete this takes it off the list while incomplete tasks roll over automatically.

  17. Office 365 licencing/security bug

    When you convert a Office 365 licenced Mailbox with preconfigured Outlook client and mobile devices into a Shared Mailbox, the preconfigured Outlook client and mobile devices continue to receive and send emails. Even after revoking the licences from the converted account, the Outlook client and Mobile device continue to work without problem. Even resetting the password no longer revokes access. New configurations cannot be established, but old ones remain active. This presents a problem for me as this was our decommission process for ex staff. Only recently discovered that any personal devices they had kept access to the company data.…

  18. Attachments

    Please allow an option to set a default folder or location to locate files for attachments. The setup you have now is useless and frustrating, to say the least. I can see how it could be helpful to some customers, but certainly not all. Thanks!

  19. Which item in my inbox is selected?

    I notice I'm regularly deleted the wrong email from my inbox listing. There can be 2 email items shaded blue, slightly different shades to my eyes. When I see them side by side I can pick out the difference. Turns out one is selected, and other just where the cursor happens to be. I find myself hitting delete and the one I think is selected stays there... and I have to scroll up and down or look in trash to figure out what really got deleted. As far as I can tell, there's no particular benefit to highlighting the line…
