  4. Delayed Delete Emails

    I'd love the ability to do a right mouse-button on an email message and mark that email to be deleted after X number of day where I'd select X on a message-by-message basis. I could also select a fixed date. This feature would be invaluable for emails with hotel and rental car reservation confirmations, package shipment notice with tracking numbers, or any other email that is important until after a future event - such as the package delivered. There would not need much granularity in the exact moment the email message is deleted.

  5. Colour the favourites section for mailboxes - allow us to choose the background colour

    Colour the favourites section for mailboxes - allow us to choose the background colour for each item added into the favourites section - this enables the user to quickly scan mailboxes rather than all of them and picking the wrong one

  6. Add a 'Next business day' flag default setting that shows with other flags of 'Today', 'Tomorrow' etc. when right clicking on message

    Add a 'Next business day' flag default setting that shows with other flags of 'Today', 'Tomorrow' etc. when right clicking on message. This would enable things flagged on Friday to go directly to Monday without having to click through the custom menu. Would be faster.

  7. 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.

  8. Add MailTips for messages that are set for delayed delivery, so that the scheduled delivery time shows up in the MailTips bar.

    Incorporate MailTips for messages that are set for delayed delivery, so that the scheduled delivery time shows up in the MailTips bar when you preview the message. This way you don't have to go back in to the delayed delivery options to check the scheduled delivery time.

  9. Backup mail content as in Word.

    Periodically backup the mail being edited, so that when outlook fails and restarts, it can restore the latest mail content.

  11. Record audio while composing a new mail

    Similar to MS Office PowerPoint feature, add an option to record audio directly into a new mail. Currently we have option only to browse and upload an object (eg audio file).

  15. Send group email via Contacts

    It would be nice to have the ability to email a group of people by selecting their names within Outlook Contacts versus 1st creating a new email then individually searching their names. We would be able to send an email to the selected contacts much faster. It would also be nice if we could create a New Group by selecting their names within Outlook Contacts and right-clicking versus 1st creating the group then searching for individual names.

  17. Please add an archive button next to the trash can button in the message list.

    Please add an archive button next to the trash can button in the message list. The archive button is at the bottom of the list when I right click on a message, but it would be less clicks to have it in the message list entry next to the trash can button. This would be similar to the ability to archive messages by swiping in the outlook mobile app.
