  1. Notification in case of duplicate event

    When attempting to add a duplicate event to my calendar, I should get a notification saying "this event seems like a duplicate - are you sure you want to add it?" This notification should come up when I begin editing an event description, not when I hit the Save button.

  2. freeze on large inbox

    I have about 6years of Exchange emails for compliance reasons and Outlook 2016 x64(latest build) locks up and freezes everytime i lookup an old email

    Outlook gobbles up as much memory as it can and finally gives up (sometimes as high as 9GB)

    Web however works just fine. I'm definitely feel this is an Outlook issue

  4. After opening an attachment it is difficult to send a reply

    Once an attachment in a mail is opened by double clicking it, Outlook goes to the Attachment tab and does not return to the Home tab. It becomes difficult to send a reply. One has to come back to the Home tab to send a response to the mail. Some via media can be found for this.

  5. Autolookup feature bug in v1710 Build 8625.2127

    Restore functionality to Autlookup feature.

    I perform the following:

    -Navigate to Calendar in Outlook
    -Click New Meeting button
    -Begin typing “Display name” for resource/room
    -Autlookup dialog box appears below to field
    -Click the resource I want in autlookup field
    -However, “Location” field does not autopopulate

    (Previous to version v1710 Build 8625.2127, this functionality worked)

    If I hit the “To…” button and add the contact that way it will auto-populate the “Location” field. I’d imagine this bug appeared when the autolookup field appearance was changed in this version.

  6. Email gets removed from client (but is still on server)

    Sometimes I get the following message in my inbox:

    Click here to view more on Microsoft Exchange

    If I click it more emails can popup that weren't in my inbox before, this is NEW emails and not emails that should be removed because they have reached the age limit for how long the should be kept. I don't know why some emails are removed and some are kept (my inbox has both older and newer ones that are not removed).

    After I have clicked the button and the emails popup in my inbox the disappear again as soon as I…

  7. 'Hold place or freeze' option on Calendar when flipping between email and calendar

    When looking at a future date in the calendar, I should be able to 'hold' or 'freeze' where I am so that when I go to email and back, it remembers where I was. There can also be an 'unfreeze' option to take me straight back to the current week.

  15. Trigger an action when an event is due.

    When a user sets up a reminder in Outlook, there should be an option to do an action automatically instead of a message popping up on the screen. For example, if I want to print a certain documents on a particular date and time and if I set up a reminder and a link to that document, the document (s) should open up automatically and warn that it's about to print that document. This should be optional. This will facilitate an Outlook user to create a link say, for invoices due for payments, air tickets / hotel booking vouchers printing…

  16. Shares from MSWord are using the wrong email address

    Currently I have an Exchange Account but it is NOT my default email account in Outlook 2016.

    I send an email from the default account --it goes from that account.

    But when I create a MS Word document and then share within MS Word (sending as attachment), the attachment always sends from the Exchange account even though the sender shows my default account.

    This glitch needs to be fixed.

  18. display URL in status bar on hover

    Display the URL in the bottom footer status bar when hovering over an Email link (or option to show or hide that in settings). Should be visible with the amount of spam and phishing so that a user knows. Maybe extra highlighting if domain does not match domain of sender to alert of spam/phishing.

  19. Frequently used contacts

    In organizations we used to send emails to couple of DLs or alias frequently. These can be kept in a drop down list or some where in the corner while drafting a new email, so that no need to remember all of them. This can be added or removed similar to favorites in IE

  20. Temporary signatures

    Add the option to include a temporary signature. Users could use this function to advertise a certain event for example. At the moment this is tricky, because you can forget to remove it and keep advertising a past event.
