Allow tags in contacts.
Allow tags in contacts. for eg. finding doctors should be as easy as finding all doctors in my contact list. Fast tagging option should be given.
Please make tags available for contacts! I'm a professional and work closely with many other professional services providers and when I want to make a referral to a client it would be real easy if I could search #insurance to bring up the 5 insurance brokers I work with at one time.

It would be invaluable to be able to tag special clients and contacts and be notified of these "VIP" emails so that when I receive email from this special short list (current hot project) - I get a special notification and a filtered view with that client/contact only!!!! Very important stuff for me. Mac does have VIP but I'm switching back to PC for a while. This would approach spam issue from the other side. Microsoft Mail has it's focused email feature but I have not been able to use it successfully yet.
VERY, VERY STUPID to have removed the easy ability to Tag for Status Change Alerts from their Outlook Contact "profile" (or whatever you call the popup window when double-clicking an email address).... now you force me to go to Skype, find the person there and then select this option. Not exactly a productivity enhancement.... brilliant!
If I can "tell" Outlook that a phone number is mobile, home, work, etc., I should be able to "tell" Outlook that an e-mail is personal or work, etc.

I use color categories for this. It works for me.
In www.outlook.com, the e-mail adresses of a contact are labelled (private, work). If this would be the same in Outlook 2016, synching would be better than with numbered e-mail adresses.
Being able to tag a person (doesn't have to be limited to Groups). Like, I would type @ and it would list some people as I type the first letters, and it could automatically CC that person?
