  2. Provide an option or feature to return to older version to Search contacts so that you see all contact cards in Microsoft Outook

    Previously, if I searched in Contacts, for, say the word "golf", I'd see the actual contact cards for everyone with that word in them, not just one person or a partial contact. Help. Please return to that.

  3. you need a more improved search engine for searching for contacts. Allow it to search all fields not just t.he name. Let it sort by column

    You need a more improved search engine for searching contacts. Allow it to search all fields not just the name. Let it sort by column so at least you can scan down the column to look for a contact. This feature has been horrible for a long time.

  10. Option to save/export list of cached email IDs

    There are 1000s of email IDs in my Outlook app's cache which do not show up in the address book, however, they pop up as dropdown when writing a mail. I need and option to either save those contacts in the address book from where they can be exported, or an option to directly export them. Today If i lose my PC, or the disc goes corrupt I'll lose 1000s of IDs, and all my client data is lost. I can't go and individually go to email and chose to save those IDs individually for 1000s of IDs.

  11. Monthly View = needs to show appoints (regardless of time)

    Monthly View = needs to show appoints (regardless of time) rather than +#; I even have +1 shown and have to change view to hunt for it.

  18. Have contacts automatically re-assign the city and/or Zip/postal code into the correct fields as you type

    Seems like we are missing some great pre-emptive search technology when it comes to entering in addresses by hand into contacts. Outlook should be able to guess when I'm typing a zip code or postal code and put in in the right field. Same for city and State. Let's have some auto-populating going on like we see with other Windows products.

  19. ajout du contact automatique

    Ajouter automatiquement le contact lors de la création d'un mail vers une nouvelle adresse sans avoir besoin de retourner dans le mail envoyé pour ajouter l'adresse aux contacts.
    Le simple fait d'écrire à une adresse inconnue suffirait à l'application à enregistrer automatiquement cette nouvelle adresse, comme c'est déjà le cas dans la plupart des messageries.
