  1. fix outlook freeze bug when multiple profiles are active

    Outlook freezes when you have more than one profile active on your computer and a second user opens outlook, the client freezes when you switch back to the first profile.

    This bug has been active for over a year. A common scenario with multiple users using the same computer, and a shame that a great program like outlook is broken like this.

  4. Provide an option to update the addressees to update the addressees of a message without having to pop-out the message

    In conversational mode, you can quickly reply to others in a mail thread. From within this mode you cannot update the addressees of the reply. Sometimes you want to add or remove an addressee. At this moment that means you have to pop-out the message to a new window to be able to do that.
    Pleas add an option to do this from within conversational mode.

  7. Attach a file from another program to an existing email chain rather than a brand new email.

    I often export packing lists from our inventory system to a PDF. I have the option to save it, or send it to someone through email. With the email option, a new email is created. In most cases, I would like to attach this file to an existing email chain, but am constantly saving new PDFs to the desktop, attaching them to an email, and then deleting them.

    It would be really helpful to offer an option when sending to email to select an existing email chain instead of creating a new one.

  8. show the date that you are up on the scroll bar (i think that used to happen)

    when scrolling up and down the in or out box etc it would be good to see the approx date that you are at as a little box appearing adjacent to the scroll bar, perhaps i've missed something, but i think this used to happen or maybe i'm thinking of excel as this has the row number appearing on the scowl bar. it would be good to see the dates like that in outlook

  10. Showing up all the upcoming meetings in Reminder(s) window.

    Current scenario : Reminder(s) window only shows up the immediate next meeting within 15 minutes.

    Suggested feature : In addition to showing only the immediate meeting, what if it showed whole day meetings as well in sequence. Visually this could be greyed out of faded.

  12. When marking an message as complete, mark it read and allow for it to clear categories (optional)

    When marking an message as complete, mark the message as read and optionally allow for it to clear categories assigned to the message.

    This is useful for those that use categories to as a more fine tune filtering option of the status of a project, task or idea.

  13. Notification in case of duplicate event

    When attempting to add a duplicate event to my calendar, I should get a notification saying "this event seems like a duplicate - are you sure you want to add it?" This notification should come up when I begin editing an event description, not when I hit the Save button.

  14. freeze on large inbox

    I have about 6years of Exchange emails for compliance reasons and Outlook 2016 x64(latest build) locks up and freezes everytime i lookup an old email

    Outlook gobbles up as much memory as it can and finally gives up (sometimes as high as 9GB)

    Web however works just fine. I'm definitely feel this is an Outlook issue

  16. After opening an attachment it is difficult to send a reply

    Once an attachment in a mail is opened by double clicking it, Outlook goes to the Attachment tab and does not return to the Home tab. It becomes difficult to send a reply. One has to come back to the Home tab to send a response to the mail. Some via media can be found for this.

  17. Autolookup feature bug in v1710 Build 8625.2127

    Restore functionality to Autlookup feature.

    I perform the following:

    -Navigate to Calendar in Outlook
    -Click New Meeting button
    -Begin typing “Display name” for resource/room
    -Autlookup dialog box appears below to field
    -Click the resource I want in autlookup field
    -However, “Location” field does not autopopulate

    (Previous to version v1710 Build 8625.2127, this functionality worked)

    If I hit the “To…” button and add the contact that way it will auto-populate the “Location” field. I’d imagine this bug appeared when the autolookup field appearance was changed in this version.

  18. Email gets removed from client (but is still on server)

    Sometimes I get the following message in my inbox:

    Click here to view more on Microsoft Exchange

    If I click it more emails can popup that weren't in my inbox before, this is NEW emails and not emails that should be removed because they have reached the age limit for how long the should be kept. I don't know why some emails are removed and some are kept (my inbox has both older and newer ones that are not removed).

    After I have clicked the button and the emails popup in my inbox the disappear again as soon as I…

  19. 'Hold place or freeze' option on Calendar when flipping between email and calendar

    When looking at a future date in the calendar, I should be able to 'hold' or 'freeze' where I am so that when I go to email and back, it remembers where I was. There can also be an 'unfreeze' option to take me straight back to the current week.
