  3. Move menu: add folder with the entire conversation

    I usually want to move the email I've just read to the folder where other emails from the same ocnversation already reside. It would be nice if this folder is added to the Move list at the top, before all recent folders.

  4. Copy and Paste within a restricted message

    I get why I can't copy text from a restricted, DRM, message to the clipboard. But I would really like to copy some text, in a respose to that message. Please create a message level clipboard that can be used for replies to restricted messages.

  7. Free Busy should show different color/pattern when the recipient is the organizer.

    It's hard to find times that work for most people when creating a meeting. Often times, there are just one or two people who show Busy for a timeslot when everyone else is free. Those busy blocks, however, may be with appointments for which the recipient is the organizer and has the power to change. It would be helpful then to display a different pattern in Scheduling Assistant for blocks that are Busy but where the recipient is the organizer and not an attendee (and therefore may have more leeway to work around).

  8. Make Search tab visble always in Outlook main window

    The Search tab only shows itself when you start a search, however many of the options, such as indexing status you might want to see without performing a search.

    If the tab was always available then this would be possible. Also, if you want to start a search by clicking on the items in the search tab, such as hasattachments, you can do so. Today, you have to type text, then click the item in the search tab and then delete the text to achieve this

  9. Tag internal meetings as "internal"

    It seems like a lot of people manually tag meeting subjects as "internal". I'd like to see Outlook/Exchange do this automatically based on the attendee list. If the attendees all come from your organization, the UI should be able to flag those as "internal" meetings, maybe with categories or something.

  11. Merge to PDF and attach via e-mail

    I would like to be able to merge a word doc into a pdf, which is immediately sent as an e-mail with the attached PDF.

    Of course some text would have to be added to the e-mail.

  13. Play deleting sound only after items were deleted

    When using the Provide Feedback with Sound option and deleting an item with SHIFT DEL, deleting sound is played when showing the prompt for permanent deletion. It should play only after pressing the Yes button, because prompt sound is already managed by the Exclamation sound event on Windows.

  14. allow rules to set Follow Up flags in OWA

    It's 2019... why is the ability to automatically flag mails for followup only available in the Outlook thick client?

  15. display "number of messages highlighted" in the toolbar

    I often want to select a lot of messages and I need a count of them (say RSVP's or something like that). in the tool bar you have Items and Unread counts.

    Please add "Messages Selected"

    (sorta like Excel shows dynamic data about the cells that are highlighted)

    My workaround is to always create a new folder and copy the messages to that new folder (and then have to clean up after this).

  17. Highlight my name in body of emails

    Anywhere <my name> appears in the body of an email, draw attention to it somehow. Highlighting/scroll bar indicators, etc.

  18. Add the ability to add Code Snippets

    Just as we have in Teams now, I have the option to format a section of my message as a code snippet. When sending small samples to customers, or back and forth to myself from a customer network, so of the essential formattting is lost. Can we have an option to format a section of the email body as a code section that preserves the formatting?

  19. Consider using the Monaco editor for previewing code files

    It would be great if we could preview attached code files inside of a visualizer with syntax highlighting. (More broadly, it also supports Dark Mode, which would be nice, compared to the current notepad-like visualizer)

    See (https://microsoft.github.io/monaco-editor/)

  20. Publish email thread to a git wiki

    As part of the innerSource spirit, new hireswould benefit from seeing examples of debuggings of the system they are working on. But no one writes such documentations. And these debuggings most times take place over email (with questions and answers and screenshots and all that build up until the aha moment). And there should be a button in Outlook which says publish this email thread (where the debugging has taken place) to a wiki (we use aka.ms/idwiki which is github based). This is making it easier for people to record the relevant documentation. And it's not just debugging, it could…
