  1. Provide different GPO settings for the default account and added accounts

    We already have GPOs to enable caching in Outlook but these settings are valid for all accounts added. It would make sense to have distinct settings for the default account where I would e.g. cache items for 24 month but for all other accounts maybe only 3 to 12 months for performance reasons regarding OST files.

  2. Toolbar Customizations save all in one ui

    When saving Quick Access Toolbar commands, can each ui be saved into one ui. It would be so much easier then saving changes individually or copying the .ui files. Thanks

  3. MAPI Extended error for IMessage Object

    If IMessage::SubmitError fails and returns MAPIEEXTENDED_ERROR, IMessage::GetLastError gets called. If you supply MAPIERROR structure to Outlook it does not use the information on MAPIERROR in the displayed error box. I think the information returned by GetLastError should be shown in the error message popup.
    See: https://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/office/en-US/96ca73d6-e4d4-462e-9791-d3e035b288ff/mapi-extended-errors-for-imessage?forum=outlookdev#8803715e-ac2f-4788-b2ad-74eca08b8723

  4. Note Field and doing incell editing. Multi select fields etc. and changing them all at once without opening.

    To open a task, contact etc etc. just to type a simple word or even a small sentence in the note section is too much. It would make it really easier and a less step to do if you can allow us to type into the field directly. Especially if you are typing the same note and having to open them all for 10 tasks is crazy!

    Please consider selecting multiple tasks, contacts etc. and being able to change a text all at once. For example, if I have 10 tasks and have in the sentence a word that I…

  5. Create rule from search pane

    Similiar to GMail feature. Once I've tuned my search to find the correct results it would be nice to have a one click step to create a rule for it or search folder(if they ever get added to Outlook on the Web.)

  6. Create calendar event from email message

    Add ability to R Click message in Outlook, to create event in Calendar with options.
    I use my calendar as task manager - I get a message for an action that will take 45 min, I would find the ability to copy the message to the calendar vs. drag and drop

  7. Add more time views to calendar

    Create a view for the next xx business days (excluding weekends). Being able to specify the number of days would be great. At the end of the week I start looking at next week and the 7-day view shows the weekend which is not helpful.

  9. Add Sweep feature on Outlook client

    As the sweep feature on outlook.com works greatly, what about adding it also to Outlook client/Exchange Online?

    This will improve productivity.

  10. Mail merge from Excel Sheet

    I tried sending E-mail messages to two receipients with addresses of two recepients separted by a semicolon through mail merge. Outlook doesn't recognize the format. Please add a feature to allow entry of multiple E-mails which outlook can recognize.

  11. Select All Icon

    The select all icons for E-mail messages and Attachments pretty much look similar. It becomes confusing to chhose the right one on the quick access toolbar. Please change the shape of the one meant for attachments. Thanks!

  12. Create Quick Step to run specified rules.

    I have several rules that I run manually sometimes multiple times a day. It would be great to have a Quick Step that would run the rule for me instead of having to go to the rules menu to manually run them.

  13. Notification when a message send is set to delayed.

    Sometimes I use the fearure to not deliver before a specific date and time. I would be really helpful to have a notification at the top of the message (similar to the OOF notification when sending to a recipent with an OOF message set).

  16. Improve Tagging UX

    Add 'Search' (intellisense) to Categories flexpane - even better, support multi-select so you can add a tag and search for another tag keeping the first tag. Anyone usingTags has a difficult and cumbersone UX in tagging items, as you need to scroll a lot

  18. Provide reminder if a reply has not been received in X days.

    Suggest a 'followup' feature:

    -Allow me to flag an email with "Monitor for Reply"
    -If I have not received a reply from somone on "To" line within a certain # of day, Outlook pops up a reminder that "You did not receive a response. Send reminder?"

  19. Insights feature should be available when sending mail from a distribution or security group

    It would be great to have Insights when sending mail from a distribution group or security group. Currently we send monthly Newsletters to partners across Microsoft and are unable to track the success rate of these with out moving to a CRM or dynamics.

  20. Remember selected calendars at opening

    When I open Outlook, only one default calendar opens. I keep four opened most days and would like those same calendars to open each time like it does in the web client
