  3. Removing folders

    Give us the ability to remove folders we don't use. Many of us do not use the "group", "conversations" or various other folders that Outlook automatically installs and will let us delete. Users should be able to remove any folder they don't want.

  5. Provide a Warning when the Outlook file becomes too large

    Dependend on the amount of system memory the outlook pst file may become too large. After that outlook is stuck. So, a warning which relates the size of the PST file to the amount of available memory is needed.

  6. When clicking a web-hyperlink, I would like to select the specific browser window where the link should open.

    At times, multiple browser windows are opened to organize the work I am doing. In such instances, if I can direct the links to open in a particular instance of the Browser window, that will make it more effective and efficient for me.

  7. Please bring back the feature that had the Inbox label on top bar.

    With multiple Inboxes, there used to be the label on the top portion (blue bar area) where you could see which Inbox you were looking at. Ever since the new rollout of the Search bar on top that is no longer present. Since I monitor multiple inboxes I usually have multiple windows open. I used to be able to glance up at the top and see which Inbox I was viewing, which made it very simple and easy to know which window was which Inbox. Now I cannot tell until I flip through my open windows. Please bring that back.…

  8. uncancel a meeting request

    It would be great if we had a way to "uncanel" a meeting request that was cancelled if you are the facilitator. Accidents do happen!

  13. Wish there was an "For your awareness" rather than "cc"--

    I wish there was an option for addressees/invitees on email and calendar items that was "For Your Awareness" rather than "cc" indicating they are not expected to respond or attend, but for those situations when they need to be aware....the optional and required options are not as explicit

  14. Replace "Reply, Reply All, Forward" or the "Discard, Pop out" buttons back to to left.

    They are now on the upper right hand corner, whereas before they were on the left.
    On large, widescreen monitors, these are never in your direct line of sight and are "hidden" out of sight in the upper right hand corner.

  16. Ability to copy email addresses directly from invite lists for meetings.

    It would make it much easier to internally identify people that attended meetings if you could not just copy a participant list from a meeting invite (which only shows internal usernames) but also copy participant/invitee emails from the tacking screen.

  17. Provide a feature to insert the date of return automatically into auto reply

    Please provide a feature to insert the returning date into automatic reply.
    We do not have to change anything besides the date after the message is written once, but if it is written in several languages, we often forget to exchange the date somewhere, because we need to change it manually in the option and in evey part of the message on both pages inside and outside of the organization. Thank you in advance.

  18. Create the option to add a Conflict column/field to Views. This would make Conflicts more visible and allow resolution faster.

    I love the ability to create custom views for all of my Outlook folders and decide which columns (fields) I want shown. An important column/field that is missing from the choices of available columns in the Conflicts flag/notification.

    Let me elaborate. Sometimes, when I open a mail item, an informational notice/flag appears in the header that reads, "This is the most recent version, but you made changes to another copy. Click here to see the other versions."

    My suggestion is that that you allow me to add this notice/flag to my Views. When glancing down a list of messages, I…
