  1. Absence notebook to different senders with different text

    Make it please possible to create different absence notices depending on sender or subject. Similar to rules for incoming mails should it be possible to send different absence notices. The reason therefor is that e.g. different contact persons should be put into absence notice for different customers or different projects, different categories etc.

  3. Ignore CSS !important flag in the Outlook/Word HTML parser

    Spammers/malicious senders can use the !important flag in CSS to override HTML inserted by transport rules. The effect is disclaimers inserted on incoming mail are effectively hidden from the end-user. No modern rendering engine appears to respect this flag.

  6. Provide an ability to sum time in Calendar.

    It would be nice to have the ability to sum the time in calendar. For example, scheduling employees would be easier if there was a way to total the shift hours.

  7. multiple phone numbers/or preferred number

    Please allow the user to designate preferred contact numbers under people so that when we search the name, the numbers we most frequently use with the individual show up, as opposed to having to arrow into the contact and find the number we want.

  10. Add the 'forward to all' button

    I was wondering if the "transfer to all" feature would be appropriate. We respond, respond to all and transfer. But not transfer at all. The whole thing would allow us to keep track of the contacts while keeping the attachments.

  14. encryption of .pst and .ost file for windows 10 home edition as it doesnt have bitlocker

    encryption of .pst and .ost file for windows 10 home edition because home edition doesnt have bitlocker.
    If a PC is lost or stolen, the hardrive can be mounted to another PC that has already booted and the .ost and .pst files easily copied. and accessed. The .ost and .pst file should be encrypted to stop those files being able to be accessed off-line. I should either log in on-line or login with password off-line to be able to open those files ...else they should not be able to be opened.

  15. Provide an ability to display full width of Calendar meeting.

    Once there are more than one meeting on the same time during the day, it shrinks and impact ALL OTHER MEETINGS in the day to only half or third etc. of the full width of the daily view.

    Asking to consider it will keep other meetings full width and easier to view and manager this way.

  20. switching between folders is extremely slow

    Navigating between inbox and sent folder for example should be quick but it is slow and takes ~3 seconds to switch, I'm using latest SurfaceBook, on Outlook 2010 it is almost instant and that was using a 2009 Dell laptop.
