  2. Do not automatically assign categories to thread

    Currently, when I tag a message with a category, every message on the thread thereafter will also be tagged with the category, thus polluting my categories with noise. I use categories to indicate the state or action items of particular messages. Automatically propagating the categories to future messages completely defeats my purpose. Please return to the previous functionality in which tagging a message only tags that one message and no more.

  4. 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.

  5. 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…

  12. Fix the issue PLEASE of when you select more than one Contact and click email to multiple, it picks up the email addresses in Email2 and 3.

    Please fix the issue of the fact that when you select more than one contact, and then click email, it is NOT including the email addresses in Email2 and Email3. It worked in every other version, but not in the 2016. Desperately need that function to work properly.

  15. Provide an option to move messages based on Age in Microsoft Outlook 2016 rather than date

    Provide an option to move messages based on Age in Microsoft Outlook 2016 rather than date for easier management of an email for reference. Currently you can archive emails or move emails and it would be beneficial to make the rule to move any email based on time period to a specified folder.

  18. Clarification of options' descriptions on Send/Receive Group form.

    I'd like to make two suggestions about the Send/Receive Groups form's presentation:


    1. The bottom section is titled "When Outlook is Offline" (ie. Alt+S+W). To make it clearer what that actually means, I suggest that be changed to "When Outlook is set to work in Offline Mode". The existing "When Outlook is Offline" causes confusion because people think that means when the LAN or WAN (ie. Internet for most people) is down.


    2. "Include this group in send/receive (F9)" could be better understood as "Include this group in when doing a manual send/receive (ie. F9)"

  19. 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
