  1. Option to Snooze email messages in Outlook for Windows

    Please add the email SNOOZE option to Outlook for Windows--to match the SNOOZE feature that already exists in OWA/O365.

    This is an incredibly handy feature that I use daily in Gmail when I need to follow-up later. Snooze is much easier than adding a follow-up reminder to the message.

    Thank you

  2. Mark an email like "Awaiting response" when it's sent

    This will allow us to remember which emails we are waiting for to be answered, and track them from the same email.

  3. Adjust the width of the folders section of email

    My inbox just changed today along with the location of the search box. I want to be able to make the width of the folders section smaller but I can not do that anymore.

  5. Add Snooze in the desktop version of Outlook, not only in the Web/browser version

    The ability of snoozing an email is available in Outlook for the web/browser version.
    There are third parties that allow you to snooze emails in the desktop client but no native implementation.
    Thanks

  6. Out of Office

    The option for Out of Office for multiple dates should be available/ to set up an automatic Out of Office message if calendar dates are booked as Holiday. Most people have to book holiday early in the year and therefore already know their holiday dates. They do not, however, always remember to set Out of Office before they go.

  8. Clear Suggested Contacts because some of them are DEAD!

    When creating an email, typing an address in the "To" field brings up recent contacts and suggestions. The suggestions cannot be deleted, yet this is my personal info. These suggestions come from recent emails, but also from emails I sent 5-10 years ago. Literally, some of these contacts died a few years ago, but you still show them as "Suggested". Holy ****, this is my personal info, yet you won't let me delete it. This info is store in your cloud somewhere, which tells me you care nothing about people's privacy. I cannot clear "Suggested". Yet some of these people…

  9. Undo Send (10 second delay before sending) like Office 365 version

    The online version of office 365 allows you to set a rule/setting that will allow you to undo a send for up to 10 seconds after hitting send. Please give that feature to the full version of Outlook.

  11. emoji response to email

    Enable emoji response to email, just like we can in Teams - many emails could be simply and quickly responded to with the 6 emojis available for Teams responses. It would be great if we could just give a thumbs up or a smiley face as a quick response to the sender.

  12. Wrap long subjects in the reading Pane

    Wrap long subjects in the reading Pane

    The subject shown in the reading pane is shown only on one line, when it is longer, the last part of the subject is lost and one must open the email to see the full subject.

    The Subject should should wrap to the next line to allow full view of the subject in the reading pane.

  14. Spam/Phishing report button/ feature

    This will allow users to quickly report malicious emails. This may work better for organizations to quickly remove these emails from employee inboxes. This can also be used as a training tool for cyber security awareness in terms of spotting malicious emails.

  16. Delivery and Read receipts

    Instead of sending a separate message (and clogging inbox) for delivery and read receipts, can something similar to Whatsapp be implemented in the sent messages i.e. one tick for delivered and two for read?

  17. Unread Email Count - Move it back!

    I hate that the new unread email count for any box is aligned to the right. I cannot find anything online on how to fix this. PLEASE change this back or at least give the user the ability to determine if they want the count number next to the folder name or aligned differently.

  18. Adding virtual sticky-notes, and color-coding emails in various ways

    I'd love to paste virtual sticky notes on emails to remind myself of details not on the thread. Thanks.

    I'd love to color code the entire email in the email list, or at least have an easier way to create new colors and new categories.

    Finally, I'd also appreciate an easy way to color code my gazillion email folders. I swear I saw this on someone's computer one time - the folder titles were colors - but I haven't seen or figured it out since then.

    Thank you.

  20. Add 'Acknowledged' and 'Thanks' buttons to emails that will tell the sender you have seen their email, without having to send another.

    Add 'Acknowledged' and 'Thanks' buttons to emails that will tell the sender you have seen/appreciate their email, without having to send another, thereby reducing email traffic.
