  2. Notify about missed recipient

    Check email for possible missed recipients before sending, similar to missed attachments. For example, if I've typed "I've also included Fred who is..." but there is no Fred in the To or CC fields, let me know I might have forgotten to add someone.

  4. 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.

  5. Show email address next to from name, for instance (GNC www.gnc.com).

    Show the name of sender and their address in left from list. This makes deletion/blocking safer. Junk blocking does not work well for domain blocking so ******** individual/groups use this to their advantage

  6. Confirm sending an e-mail to recipient with automatic reply

    When returning form a vacation having to deal with hundreds of e-mails, the fresh energy will be quickly gone. It would be great if senders would have to confirm the recipients if one ore more of them are sending automatic replies.

  7. Highlight Conversations with Unread Messages in "For Follow Up" Search Folder

    If I flag a message for follow-up, I can see it in the "For Follow Up" search folder. That folder supports "Conversation View" so I can easily see all the messages related to the follow-up message I flagged. However, when looking at the list of "For Follow Up" conversations it doesn't highlight conversations with unread messages (unless the unread message is the actual message I flagged). Because of this, I need to expand each conversation throughout the day to see if I got a response to a follow-up email I sent.

    In other folders, Conversation View will highlight the conversation…

  8. 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"

  13. Add a reply needed button

    I´m writing a message asking some stakeholders for an information. Then I go on vacation and I forget about this topic.

    It would be really simple for Microsoft and valuable to have a "Reply Needed" button to that message, maybe a "I need a reply from e.g. John M. until next Monday" If no reply is given me until the deadline, Outlook will notify me...

  17. Detect and warn user if e-mail may be going to the wrong recipient.

    Scan message for recipient's name ("Dear Name," or "Name,") and compare vs. the e-mail address(es) that are set to be sent to. It would be nice if Outlook could somehow warn you if it thinks you are about to send a message to the wrong person.

  18. Banner/icon for BCC'd recipient to know they were a BCC

    Add a small banner or icon on emails received by a BCC so the BCC'd recipient knows to be careful in replying or replying all since other recipients don't know the BCC'd recipient was included.

  19. 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.
