  5. An option to bold or highlight selected mail folders

    Have the ability to bold or highlight, use different font colour on certain mail folders in Outlook. We have so many folders, it would be great be able to be quickly identify in the long list of folders certain ones - even just the main ones.

  8. Common actions from email notification toats - Windows, Office 365

    Hi All,

    While getting an email, notification toast popup and we can close/ignore it (by clicking on -->) or to open the email (by clicking on the toast).

    I suggest to add the ability to define a set of "common actions" that can be controlled from the toast.
    In my suggestions I want to have the ability to Delete the mail (move to trash), but you can take it farther – e.g. Replay, Replay All, Forward, Mark as High importance, etc.
    Give the user to ability to define X predefined actions. It can be using button click or swipe (right,…

  9. Feedback that a message has been Archived or Deleted

    When using a shortcut to archive or delete a mail from the Inbox context, it would be nice to give some feedback that item has been archived or deleted, more specifically, when a keyboard shortcut is used to complete that action. Currently when you use the keyboard shortcut to delete or archive, it removes the email from the inbox but gives no feedback.

  13. Rethink the direction Outlook is going

    The look and feel of Outlook as well as most of the other office applications is continuing to look worse and worse. It's becoming much more childish looking and less professional looking. Many of the sections take up way too much space on the screen. The most recent change to the top of a new message looks totally ridiculous. Why either boxes around To, CC and BCC and not around Subject for example?

    Users should also be able to adjust the space between items in the Folder Pane, there is way too much whitespace between items and you have to…

  14. Please add delay delivery timer in the Outbox window

    Please add delay delivery timer in the Outbox window.
    When I have emails that will delivery in the future, they are shown in the Outbox window. But the thing is I can't see the timer, I will have to click on it to open up the email to confirm the timer.

  16. Save mail to standard .eml format instead of version specific .msg

    Mail format .msg is very poorly supported outside of Outlook for Windows. Even Outlook for Mac can't open it. You should stick to the industry standard .eml which is already supported by Outlook, just not used by default on the save action.

  17. Include Delay Delivery option for draft and reply mails

    Though there is a Delay Delivery option when we create a new mail. However, those mails which are saved in Draft section or the mail which is in reply/replyAll, there is no such option.
    Can you please suggest if there is any existing solution for this? If not, then can you please include this feature as well?

  19. Recurring Automatic Replies

    For service type mailboxes, we need to add an automatic replies every evening to advise that the department is closed until the next morning. We can disable this automatically but we cannot enable these automatically. It would be good if we could set a recurring automatic replies to turn on every day at a certain time.

  20. Provide an option to share Quick Steps with other Outlook users

    Option to send a quick step to an Outlook user that would give them the ability to save the Quick Step for their own use.

    For example, if I have a Quick Step to send a new message to my secretary and Cc my office manager, it would be beneficial to have the ability to send the Quick Step to a coworker so that they can utilize the same format without having to manually create their own Quick Step. This would help avoid grammatical errors and the chance of entering an invalid email address.
