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

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

    Provide a feature to Go back from scheduler view in Microsoft Outlook 2016

    While drafting a meeting body in the calendar, its often required to check the scheduler view and go back to the message body of the meeting. In Outlook you cannot go back to meeting body if you have opened scheduler view and you need a Go back option or feature.

  5. 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…

  6. 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.

  9. 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.

  10. 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…

  17. Slide show of all pics in a message view of Outlook 2016

    When someone sends more than an image in the email, have to download them all into a folder to view it as a slide show, or for that matter even to navigate back and forth. It would be great if there is an ability to slide show and navigate back and forth between all pics without having to download them
