  2. Instant Search popup should contain a link to where to find more information

    I click the button for Instant Search. A popup shows up telling me that Windows Search service is not installed. It is not clear what it means to "see the Help included with your version of Microsoft Windows". The popup should be clearer, and/or a link should be in the popup for more information of how to set it up.

  7. UPN or Primary address Automation

    Whenever a user's UPN, Primary address changes the outlook profiles remain using the old UPN or Primary address showing up as the Sent from by default an option for select FROM to change the new Primary address exists on a per email or per reply basis. Why not make this change an automated feature across board? when the Primary address changes Outlook is unable to pick up this change unless you create a new outlook profile and add your account using the new address. Will you ever make this automated?

  8. Support cache all for large mailboxes

    I would like the option of caching more data. Now that the E3 size is increased to 100GB the local ost is still supposed to be kept below 10GB (kb2759052). I would like this flat file architecture to be replaced with something that can support a large offline cache if users want it.

  10. "Trying to connect..." :-(

    Outlook printing "Trying to connect..." in the status bar is soooo depressing. "Connecting..." is better.

  15. People search issue with Turkish characters in Outlook 2016

    In Turkish, instead of I-i character in English we have two different letters, İ-i, I-ı. And not like in English lowercase i does not correspond to uppercase I, both have their own uppercase and lowercase versions as you can see above.

    So lets say i have a name ismail, when i write it in uppercase its written as İsmail.

    During searching for people (or email etc) lets say there is a person called İsmail, of course his name is recorded into database as Ismail since we are in a international company. In a computer reigon is set as Turkey, When…

  16. Hotkeys should work for different language in Outlook 2016

    When answering an e-mail, the hotkeys displayed in the tool tip for italic, bold etc. do not work in German Outlook 2016 on German Windows 7 but trigger some other Outlook functionality, e.g. open the search dialogue.

    Provide an option to Jump to "Today" in Calendar using keyboard shortcuts' because this is about making displayed hotkey work, the other about introducing a completely new hotkey.

  19. When creating a meeting from a thread, de-selecting attendees does NOT remove them from the recipient list

    When using Scheduling Assistant to set up a meeting, de-selecting / unchecking attendees does not remove them from the To: field of the email. I would expect that not including them in the invite would also mean that they do not get the invite, as the meeting may be intended for a subset of that group.
    To remove the un-invitees, they must be deleted from the To: line or removed in Scheduling Assistant, which makes de-selecting them superfluous.

  20. UK address parsing in outlook

    Read a UK address properly. (I was at he launch of an early SM mail product in the UK [Andrew Less was PM] where he demonstrated draggin a UK postal address into the contacts and it was parsed. Since then it HAS NEVER worked. The product is unable to make ven a vaugeul sensible attempt at reading a UK address - it fails to see the post (zip) code even which must require almost 0 AI ability.
    The fact that you seem to miss is that Uk addresses to do not always require a County (state). When the city (or…
