  2. Schedule Work Offline Mode on Recurring Basis

    With Outlooks new emphasis on focus time and quality of life improvement, I would love a feature that allows me to schedule work offline/work online times and toggle the work offline button during these periods of "focus time"

  3. 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.
    Suggest screenshot here: https://prnt.sc/tgljem
    Please add the timer column so we can confirm it easier.
    Thank you so much

  4. Create a Last Year feature in Outlook

    "xx-1" for last year and "xx-2" for older than one year to be able to see most recent year by date in outlook. Can help wrap up loose ends from the previous year - especially one like 2020

  5. 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.

  7. When we block a sender it should automatically be moved out of the mail boxes AND ALSO mark more than 1 block emails at once.

    When we block a sender it should automatically block, remove from spam/junk & deleted mail, never to be seen again. There are so many Unnecessary steps to get a spam email out of the mail.

    PLUS we should be able to block all of the emails in spam at once.

  8. 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?

  9. I want to be able to convert an Outlook email to a word document.

    I want to be able to take a Outlook email and convert it to word document without losing any of the format. Not necessarily all the indents and stuff, but the main bulk of the email, and convert it directly to a word document for storage, thus eliminating the need to print it.

  11. 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.

  15. 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…

  17. 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.

  18. "Reply + Archive" and "Reply + Delete" function to Outlook

    I would love a button with "Reply+Archive" and/or a "Reply+Delete" button on the e-mail window. Reason: I do not want to see the replied e-mails in the inbox and with this function I won't need to archive a letter with a different procedure.

  19. 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

  20. 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…
