Provide an option to *Like* emails in Microsoft Outlook 2016
Provide an option to Like or react to emails in Microsoft Outlook 2016.

Let someone know you have read their email, but does not require a reponse. Alittle like a 'like' button in social media.
You can Like messages on Outlook on the web. But you can't see these Likes in Outlook Desktop / 2016. Add the same functionality to Outlook Desktop/2016 for Windows.

Maybe you can put a “Like” button for Outlook application. For example; when we write an e-mail with a crowded CC, we need a “Like” button to thank to the sender after we have got a response. No need to send a singular or full CC e-mail to thank. It’ll make the communication easier and this’ll create saving time and make mailboxes less full.

This would help reduce inbox volume, but still allow the user to view whether there have been any acknowledgements. For online/web O365, it generally replaces a 'thank you' or 'ok' email - works very well.
Id like to be able to like or dislike the emails I receive so that the sender knows the opinion without me necessarily having to write a response.
Id like to be contacted if this feature is to be implemented.

Please add an ability to flag a thread or message as liked or upvoted. I don't need a new email reminder every time this happens, but before I open an email chain, I can pre-read the interest level already in the topic.
Additionally, I should be able to see on tooltip hover, on the message subject, who has "liked" or "upvoted" the thread.
A way to quickly "like" an email. So you can show you read it and have gotten the information without clogging up someone's inbox.

It would be great to be able to "like" emails like we can in the online version of Outlook. I find it really useful to confirm receipt :)
It would be good to see the likes on a message for users using the desktop client. Users on the web application think they are providing feedback but it is not visible to desktop client users.

Add the "Like" feature to the desktop version similar to the browser version
