  4. Option to Restore Full Proofing Tools or Return to calendar in the same view you left it in Microsoft Outlook 2016

    Option to Restore Full Proofing tools in Microsoft Outlook 2016.
    A little analogue clock positioned below the Calendar in the right hand pane of Microsoft Outlook 2016 would be beneficial as well.

    Also, If I am in calendar and have set it up the way I like it (typically week view starting today) then go to email or people and then return to calendar, bring up calendar exactly the way I left it. Currently it comes up starting at first day of the week as I have defined. If today is the last day of the week, I get 6…

  9. Powershell attachments in recent items

    When using powershell to > to a file (eg. get-something >c:\temp\output.txt), it does not appear in recent items. When opening in Notepad, saving the file, it still does not appear. Even if you modify the file contents and save it, still does not appear.

    Only when you rename the file from within notepad, does it appear.
    This would be useful for when needing to export data quickly and attach to an Email, or open in Excel.

  10. Option to move the clickable font applications outside Microsoft Outlook 2016 post

    The applications for formatting in Microsoft Outlook 2016 should not be within the post so they can be easily used with constantly going up and down within the post itself.

  11. Microsoft Outlook 2016 Apps with right-side banner for corporate communication

    There are applications available which offer Windows Screen Saver for showing Corporate Communication messages. Controlled from centralized machine, the system would download executable file, download content, install Apps inside client workstation and modify its registry. Once the computer is idle, the Apps would initiate the Screen Saver and shows Corporate Communication contents.

    As the ratio of the laptop screen is getting wider and becomes 16:9 ratio, there might be a place to put those Corporate Communication messages as banner on the right-side of the screen. Hence, outlook 2010 Apps can have this banner and Microsoft can add this feature for…

  13. Provide different GPO settings for the default account and added accounts

    We already have GPOs to enable caching in Outlook but these settings are valid for all accounts added. It would make sense to have distinct settings for the default account where I would e.g. cache items for 24 month but for all other accounts maybe only 3 to 12 months for performance reasons regarding OST files.

  14. Toolbar Customizations save all in one ui

    When saving Quick Access Toolbar commands, can each ui be saved into one ui. It would be so much easier then saving changes individually or copying the .ui files. Thanks

  15. MAPI Extended error for IMessage Object

    If IMessage::SubmitError fails and returns MAPIEEXTENDED_ERROR, IMessage::GetLastError gets called. If you supply MAPIERROR structure to Outlook it does not use the information on MAPIERROR in the displayed error box. I think the information returned by GetLastError should be shown in the error message popup.
    See: https://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/office/en-US/96ca73d6-e4d4-462e-9791-d3e035b288ff/mapi-extended-errors-for-imessage?forum=outlookdev#8803715e-ac2f-4788-b2ad-74eca08b8723

  16. Note Field and doing incell editing. Multi select fields etc. and changing them all at once without opening.

    To open a task, contact etc etc. just to type a simple word or even a small sentence in the note section is too much. It would make it really easier and a less step to do if you can allow us to type into the field directly. Especially if you are typing the same note and having to open them all for 10 tasks is crazy!

    Please consider selecting multiple tasks, contacts etc. and being able to change a text all at once. For example, if I have 10 tasks and have in the sentence a word that I…

  19. Select All Icon

    The select all icons for E-mail messages and Attachments pretty much look similar. It becomes confusing to chhose the right one on the quick access toolbar. Please change the shape of the one meant for attachments. Thanks!

  20. Notification when a message send is set to delayed.

    Sometimes I use the fearure to not deliver before a specific date and time. I would be really helpful to have a notification at the top of the message (similar to the OOF notification when sending to a recipent with an OOF message set).
