  1. Provide the capability to Print Tasks within Outlook Today in Microsoft Outlook 2016

    When trying to print my Outlook Today from Outlook 2016, the right-side printing margin is too large which results in the "tasks" being cut off on the right side. Therefore, it would be great to print the whole page including tasks too.

  3. Option to add 'Archive' Button to Menu on the Right Side (in Touch Mode)

    In Microsoft Outlook 2016 on Microsoft Surface in Touch Mode, when we are looking at emails, we have menu with buttons along the right hand side of the screen (Delete, Reply, Flag, etc.). We have the tendency to touch those icons when we are reading emails, as our hand generally hovers around that right side, so it would be really helpful if the archive button can be added to that specific quick menu. Ideally, it would be great if we could edit which buttons are there and which aren't.

  6. 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.

  8. Message Preview missing from search results

    When I type any text into the search box of my inbox, all Message Preview text disappears. Turning on Message Preview in the ribbon or changing the number of preview lines does nothing.

    I normally work with the preview pane turned off so I normally rely on Message Preview to help determine which is the correct message to open. With no Message Preview when searching, now I have to open each possible message. Slow!

    Please bring back the ability to show Message Preview in Search Results, at least if the Preview Pane is off!

  9. Option to add Skype for Business meeting details to the bottom of the message.

    When adding Skype for Business to a meeting via the add-in, the Skype details are added to the top of the message by default. Therefore provide an option to copy/paste the meeting details to the bottom of the message.

  10. Touch mode email action buttons

    I like the increased whitespace of the 'touch mode' even when I'm not on a touch computer. There is one annoying UI change in Outlook that happens when you go into touch mode. It moves the email action buttons (reply, delete, etc) to the right side in a vertical bar and removes any text labels.It would be great if the icons stayed where they are in the normal mode but are larger and have more whitespace. Much like the changes that happen on the ribbon.

  11. Categories do not appear correctly when column is moved

    Hello,
    in outlook when we affect a category to mail a square of the category's color normally appears in the "category" column.
    But in Outlook 2016, according to the place where you have placed the column "category", the colored square appears or not :
    - If the column is placed to the right, the colored square appears.
    - If the column is placed to the left (what I want) the colored square is not displayed. Only the text. This unpractical for all previewed different categories.

    It's a bug and I've reported it as such to the Outlook Team. Thanks!
    A…

  12. Universal Unsubscribe Button!

    Please add a button that allows the user to unsubscribe from a mailing list with just one click! Instead of having to click unsubscribe/fill out the form to confirm email/uncheck mailing addresses/reply with "stop" etc, one button automatically kills that email from appearing in your inbox again. Worst case this turns into a better version of the "junk" feature and re-reroutes to an "Unsubscribed" folder/filter if it can't automatically unsubscribe for you.

  13. Option to set the default country region when creating a new contact in Microsoft Outlook 2016.

    Option to set the default country region when creating a new contact in Microsoft Outlook 2016.

    Also, when entering an international phone number, in the Phone Details box of a Contact, the drop down for the country code was eliminated in Outlook 2013 and 2016. This was a very useful feature. I now must look up the country code outside of Outlook. Please return this feature.

  18. Remove the default setting "No end date" on new recurring meetings

    By default when you create a new recurring meeting in Outlook the default recurrence pattern is "No end date" which is not recommended. Microsoft recommends setting end dates in their best practices link; https://support.office.com/en-us/article/Best-practices-when-using-the-Outlook-Calendar-d93f72d3-2361-4e0d-8d6a-5c4939c17f39?CorrelationId=e84b1b4d-dc2e-4bc7-8b5d-8b386f50d050&ui=en-US&rs=en-US&ad=US

  20. Monogram or watermark for legitimate internal emails.

    Monogram or watermark should be added below the signature for legitimate internal emails so that end users can recognize whether it is from a legitimate co-worker or employee of the same company.
