  6. Fix Black Outlook Theme Attach Outlook Items

    With the black office theme in outlook if you start a new email message then go to Attach Item > Outlook Item > Contacts, all of the contacts are white font on white background. You can not see the contacts. Please fix this.

    Also, In black theme, the contrast of the selector to choose postponing a meeting reminder for x minutes is so low it’s extremely hard to read.

  7. Please add “new Journal Entry” to options for adding to “quick tool bar”.

    You should be able to track your daily task, accomplishments and meetings...to see your set goal and elaboration self fulfillment even emoji expression to represent inanimate object or feelings or pictures of the day or places frequented. Lots of self data.

    Also, being able to pull up a history of contacts, their emails, docs relevant to that contact and notes in a timeline summary area like Journal is efficient to use and helpful for researching past contact activity. This is especially true for the self employed. Please bring back these features!

    Also, please add “new Journal Entry” to options for…

  11. Still be able to make a manual exchange configuration

    Outlook 2016 removes the ability to manually enter Exchange credentials. This is fine in normal operation as Autodiscover should be working but it is a pain during a migration.

    Ideally, when moving to 365 or an alternate Exchange service in an SME environment, it is nice to configure all of the new profiles before switching to the new service. One can then simply tell users that on the Monday after the move they have to open "New Profile" when prompted and all of their email (which was imported over the weekend) is ready for them.

    Creating the 365 (or other)…

  12. Sending Email using mailto: function in Microsoft Outlook 2016

    Option of sending an email using Microsoft Outlook 2016 using the mailto: option when Microsoft Outlook 2016 is closed. At present, the email is stored in the Outbox and is only sent once we open the Microsoft Outlook 2016 and the send and receive is completed thereby delaying the email to be sent out otherwise. It should remain open and shall only close once the email has been sent.

  13. Moving messages to folders with drop down list is too slow

    Moving Messages with Drop-down list - Previously the entire list of folders was immediately available to scroll down. Now, only the first few folders appear, and you must click <more> and wait for the full list of folders to populate. Too slow and time consuming! Recent folders at top of list is not really helpful. Bring back the previous drop down feature.

  19. follow up next working day

    The follow up flags are great and I often use the tomorrow option to push non urgent tasks until tomorrow, however when my tasks are work-related, pushing from Friday to Saturday just creates a bunch of tasks to move again to Monday on my Saturday morning! Having an option to push the task to 'Next Working Day' would solve this problem if it were available.... I often have around 100-200 tasks so this may not be as significant a problem for those who have a lot less!

  20. Allow you to disable signatures on Quick Step created messages in quick step config

    This slightly overlaps with these to ideas/requests at the bottom - I have a quick step that I use to forward messages onto a system that automatically parses the messages; I would like to be able to create a quick step that when I forward a message to mailbox@company.tld it doesn't include the default signature but allows me to still add some standard covering working (tags to assign ownership, update status etc). This was just about workable in 2013 as you could at least right click on the signature that was added and remove it, since upgrading to 2016 this…
