  1. accept proposal button without needing to pop out email

    Every time I get a new time proposal for a meeting I need to open the email for the accept proposal button to show. Why not have the button available in inbox, just like Accept, Tentative and Decline are available when previewing a meeting invite.

  2. A one button click to show received email properties

    I would like to see a quick way to check a received email properties.

  3. Add a reply needed button

    I´m writing a message asking some stakeholders for an information. Then I go on vacation and I forget about this topic.

    It would be really simple for Microsoft and valuable to have a "Reply Needed" button to that message, maybe a "I need a reply from e.g. John M. until next Monday" If no reply is given me until the deadline, Outlook will notify me...

  5. Capture screen

    It will be really good to have screen capture feature within the Outlook client. It is painful to copy paste from Sniping tool.

  7. Related Mails - When reply all

    I can do IM from skype from the email itself using send and IM to.. After the chat, when we click on Find related --> Messages in this conversion from the email. I am getting chat also in the related conversion.

    And so when i click on reply all, outlook prompts saying "You are not responding to the latest message in this conversation. Click here to open it." And in the above situation it will show the IM chat instead of previous latest mail where i have to respond.

    Is there way to get Find Related -> Message in this…

  9. Detect and warn user if e-mail may be going to the wrong recipient.

    Scan message for recipient's name ("Dear Name," or "Name,") and compare vs. the e-mail address(es) that are set to be sent to. It would be nice if Outlook could somehow warn you if it thinks you are about to send a message to the wrong person.

  10. Forward email as an attachment

    The standard options are Reply, Reply All and Forward. It would be handy, especially for support technicians, if there was an "Forward as attachment" which would open a new email and the email in question was attached.

  11. Block forwarding when the Encrypt button selected

    I would like to use regedit or a patch to block forwarding messages when the Encrypt button selected in Outlook. Or it would be great if users could choose options from the button. The Permissions button has been replaced with the Encrypt button and Encrypt button was the one which could block forwarding messages. But now it only encrypts the message itself and users can forward a message. Users still think the Encrypt button can block forwarding messages, so we are encountering the problem that people mistakenly forward messages.

  13. "Reply + Archive" and "Reply + Delete" function to Outlook

    I would love a button with "Reply+Archive" and/or a "Reply+Delete" button on the e-mail window. Reason: I do not want to see the replied e-mails in the inbox and with this function I won't need to archive a letter with a different procedure.

  14. Please have different notifications for focused inbox and other inbox.

    Allow the user to select a certain sound/notification for the focused inbox and another sound (or no sound) for the other inbox. Will prevent me from stopping my work and checking my email only yo see that I got a general non-urgent email in my other inbox. If I had a chime for my focused inbox and no sound for the other inbox, I could get more work done.

  15. Warning when someone sends you unsigned message and the previous one was signed.

    It would be great if Outlook warns you with some banner etc, when the message is unsigned, but the previous one was signed.

  17. It would be great to be able to rename attachments when forwarding emails.

    Sometimes you need to rename attachments and the only way is to sabe it to PC and then attach again.

  19. Outbox Progress should be more informative.

    Outbox should show actual progress elapsed, not just 'processing'. It's impossible to know how long it's been or how much time remains in sending an email with attachments.

  20. Improve "Insert Business Card" window by adding a 'search field' to search for names/surnames

    Insert a 'search' field on the "insert Business Card" window, so one can search for a contact to attach to email instead of having to scroll through an alphabetical list. Scrolling is time consuming and sometimes the contact is filed under their first name and not the surname (and visa versa) whihc means you sometimes have to scroll a lot. A search box on the "Insert business card" window will be most useful and save time.
