  1. Check that the date in the email actually exists.

    Many times people put the day of the week and the date together in their email but they get them wrong. For example, Thursday, the 30th of June doesn't exist in either 2017 or 2018. Could you pop a window that the date entered doesn't make sense. Or maybe even tell the user that the next June 30 on a Thursday is 2021 and it would be helpful to add the year on your email for clarity sake :-)

  2. Allow more flexible choices for cache mode sync slider age limit

    What I'd really like for cache mode sync slider is to either keep everything, or to keep 15 months. What is good about 15 months is that I often find myself looking back to mails I sent about a year ago for events, business processes or systems that are approximately annual. So 12 months is too little (because stuff ages out too soon), but 24 months is overkill.

  5. When creating a new Skype Meeting, don't block editing the invite until the Skype Meeting info is added.

    Provide an option to start editing the invite, then populate the "Join Skype Meeting" info whenever it gets it rather than blocking the editing options. Bonus if it doesn't let me send the invite until that info arrives in Microsoft Outlook 2016.
    Also, when someone having editor permissions to my calendar creates a meeting or appointment in my calendar, i want to receive an email right away that ‘this particular person has created meeting for you'.

  7. Provide a feature to enable users to create own contact list and send it to specific people in Microsoft Outlook 2016

    Provide a feature to enable users to create own contact list and send it to specific people in Microsoft Outlook 2016 or shared contacts and adding an option to add Skype would be an added benefit. Also enable users to save groups created in Skype to be saved as Group Contacts in Microsoft Outlook 2016.

  8. Do not let the Outlook Client update the value of a time zone on its server while editing the profile in Outlook Client

    Provide a feature that could distinguish the types of mailboxes and, for a room mailbox, do not let the Outlook Client update a time zone in Outlook Client. The location of room mailboxes is fixed, and thus its time zone does not need to be updated.

  10. Safety tips need to be rethought in the Outlook client

    Safety tips currently appear within the body of the message. This makes it easy to imagine that a malicious user will simply format the body of a message to appear to have a safety tip, and phish the user to a supposedly 'safe' site that is actually malicious. Please consider moving the safety tips to a protected area and/or removing all links from the tip itself.

  11. add alt sign in options to "Sign In" "Sorry, but we're having trouble signing you in. We received a bad request."

    instead of just posting a message, when having trouble signing in, offer an option to retype your login / password, or anything besides the message "The server has terminated the request due to excessive request rate. Please wait a few seconds and try again."

  12. Notify users when a message with a blocked attachment type (like XML) will not be delivered

    When an attachment prevents the message from being delivered, such as attaching an XML file, the sender should be notified with a message that says "You cannot send this kind of attachment, please remove the attachment and try sending the message again"

  15. The substring "& " in our mailbox name is still replaced by "_" in the favorites. "Inbox - Fathers & Sons" becomes "Inbox - Fathers _Sons"

    The substring "& " in our mailbox name is still replaced by "" in the favorites. "Inbox - Fathers & Sons" becomes "Inbox - Fathers Sons"

    Before this gets moderated and closed again: Yes, I asked at the forum you told me to. And there I was asked to please report that bug here. Can you guys at Microsoft please agree on where bug reports must be reported, before making it a really big hassle for me? I pay for the product, just so you don't forget that.

  16. Mouse Gesture in Outlook 2016

    Like Opera and Firefox' FireGesture add-in, I wish to have very similar mouse gesture in Outlook too. Hold your mouse right-button and draw right/left to go to the next/previous message thread, up to create a new message, down to reply all, down, right to close the window, etc.

  17. Provide a feature to Include option for consecutive replies to stack in Conversation view in Microsoft Outlook 2016

    Provide a feature to Include option for consecutive replies to stack in Conversation view in Microsoft Outlook 2016 rather than consolidating. There should be an option to make these stack instead of consolidating so you don't need to un-check the flag in order view the first message by itself.

    Provide a feature to view the Out Of Office messages as a group when there are multiple recipients in a message in Microsoft Outlook 2016 rather than getting individual emails as Out Of Office responses(that we get now).
