  2. Email Count

    Increase the maximum number of email recipients from 500 to at least 1000. We are communicating via e-mail with more folks than every due to covid19

  4. Insert -> Attach File: Add Search Field Above Recent Items

    When attaching a file to an email, the list of Recent Items does a great job of listing files you've been working on, which in many cases is the one you want to send. Great feature. But, as time goes on, you may need to attach a file that isn't on the recent items list because you haven't worked on it in a while. Please add a Search Box above Recent Items that acts exactly like Search in the Start Menu. This would make attaching files much more efficient. Normally, I either have to navigate to the file, or I…

  6. "Reply All" should tell you how many people you are sending the email to

    I understand there is already a feature that warns you if your email is being sent to a large group of people, but sometimes people will hit "Reply All" to a relatively small group of people, only intending it to actually go to one person. This could cause security/NDA violations or personal privacy breaches. Outlook should tell you exactly how many people will get your email once you hit "reply all"

  7. inbox after search

    When I search for a specific email in the Outlook client inbox, I find the email and review it, and then click on the inbox again, but then I have to scroll forever to get back to the top (or drag the scroll bar up) to see the most recent emails. Please make it automatic that when you click on Inbox again after a search it goes to the top? Thanks.

  8. There's possibly now too much empty space in the email window

    It'd be great to reduce the new size of the "from", "to" and "CC/BCC" columns in both the Popped Out New Email window and the inset 'reply' window. There's a lot of "dead-air" above the line where one writes the email

  9. Insert availability

    Usually, I have to coordinate availability of internal associates with consultants who do not have access to our O365 tenant.

    It would be nice if there was a way to insert availability via the Insert tab for a specific day which lets me key the users whos calendar we are working with.

    This way, the recipient can simply create an appointment or meeting and send back quickly.

  10. Please provide the unread email count badges on taskbar. It is so useful to know what drops in our mailbox while working on different window

    Please provide the unread email count badges on taskbar. It is so useful to know what drops in our mailbox while working on different task in different window. It will save 30 second to 1 minute. You can imagine how powerful feature would be and there is no doubt that a lot of resource hours ( No of current users * 60 Seconds = x number of hours ) can be saved adding this feature.

  12. Ability to remove/reverse msg sent out by accident

    Would be great to remove/reverse email from people it was sent to by accident, as soon as you realized that mistake.

  14. Allow mark as unread while still reading, show correct read/unread state

    If I get a new mail, look at it quickly, and them move off of it, then it is marked as "read." I know this will happen, and since I have not really "read" the email, I want to leave it marked as unread. There's no way to do this. Instead, I have to move the cursor off the email and then go back to it to mark it as unread.

    Marking as unread while you're reading is a feature found in other email clients eg. gmail.

    Also, when you're reading the email for the first time, its title in…

  15. Enable Custom Desktop notifications for sepecific folders

    We would like a way to be able to customize desktop notifications. It would be helpful to designate which folders in your account you would like a notification for.
    Example: we get hundreds of emails a day between the email group for the department, it would be helpful to only receive desktop notifications for emails sent directly to me as opposed to emails we are sent in a group.
