  4. Mute button

    Please install the possibility for a "mute" button so I don't have to close my inbox but don't have to see notifications temporarily. I don't want to set timers, just click a simple button to mute my notifications.

  6. Email Signature Sync across devices

    It would be great if Outlook sync'd your email signature across multiple devices so that you only have to set or update it once.

  7. Provide ability to change the color of the reading pane or set background and text color for the reading pane

    The dark theme is great in Outlook, however the inability to change the background and text color of the reading pane make it almost painful.

    It would be fantastic to have the ability to configure the default CSS for the reading pain and text/html therein.

  10. Add an option to add multiple / change the signature based on the theme someone is using.

    Many company's use signatures in their emails. Most of these signatures have an image and some text. When designing these most people will only check if looks great on white mode. But when you have darkmode on, it doesn't look so good anymore.

  15. Automatically end a Teams or Skype meeting after specified duration

    Participants tend to unnecessarily prolong Teams/Skype meetings. Meeting should automatically end after duration and preferably display a time minder (reminder) maybe 5 minutes to end of meeting allocated time. The 5 minutes at the end will allow moderator to wrap up.

  16. Provide an option or feature to color code different email accounts in Microsoft Outlook 2016

    Provide an option or feature to color code different email accounts in Microsoft Outlook 2016. In WIndows Live, we use to be able to color code the different email accounts we had on the desktop version. I want the same ability for the outlook desktop version.

  17. Re-enable "You should only open attachments from a trustworthy source" dialog if accidentally disabled

    When opening an Outlook attachment, one has to click on a prompt before viewing the attachment, but once the check box is unchecked the prompt disappears. The only way to re-enable this on Windows 7+ is to access registry editor which is completely inaccessible to non-administrators. Personally, any option that can be unchecked should be reversible in the settings panel.
