  2. whitelist

    Suggestion: add "whitelist" to the MS Outlook vocabulary with a link to the explanation of "safe sender" so it can be found more easily when using Help.

  3. Server rules don't work over large Inboxes

    I've described this in detail here: https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/outlook_com/forum/oemail-ocleanup/trying-to-move-300000-old-emails-from-inbox-to/f20527c4-221b-4a30-89fa-3b3374bce9cd.

    Due to bad email migration software, I ended up with an Inbox with 20 years of email and more than 350,000 emails in my Inbox. I have tried endless ways to move most of them to the Archive folder, either using the Outlook desktop client or using server inbox rules as detailed on the link without success.

    The server inbox rule approach looked promising with a date period, but I have found when run over large date periods, it runs for a long time (and seems to affect outlook.com performance adversely) and…

  4. Left Pane items

    Dear, I just LOVE Outlook and would certainly not want to change to another mail provider! Had Hotmail/Outlook since the beginning and planning on continuing! Yet, to be completely satisfied, I would like to submit the following issue:
    Left Pane items: I would like to be able to select whether or not "Files", "Groups", "Archive", "Notes", "Conversation History", "Feeds", etc appear (as I DON'T use them and they take unnecessary space, plus they are annoying). If not possible to remove the "Files" and "Groups" items, could they AT LEAST have a function to STAY COLLAPSED (also really annoying to have…

  10. View the auto-complete suggestions in the To field by specifying the certain condition

    It would be great if the auto-complete suggestions in the To field could be more focused by specifying the certain condition.

  12. mark as read button on notifications instead o ARCHIVE or give option or choose between these two ARCHIVE or READ

    Why we have to open the email to mark them as read. I'm sure 90% people don't use archive on Android notifications. Many other Popular apps including myMail, Yandex mail, Yahoo etc. have it. Please add MARK AS READ instead of ARCHIVE.

    This has been asked since 2016 and with 10000+ votes but seems like outlook team don't see it useful.

  13. Change the name of "Files" to "Templates"

    Change the name of "Files" to Templates. That way is will be out-of-site and down near the bottom. I have always liked having "Folders" at the top. That way, it makes more sense when working with email.
    If I want to create something, I use a different app. Delete "Files" or change the name to Templates.

  14. Add SharePoint sites to attachment list on outlook.com

    When you use the desktop version of outlook, you can add files that have been saved on a SharePoint site (by browsing or most recent files). On outlook web version this is very limited and there is not the option to either add SharePoint sites or browse to a SharePoint site in your tenancy for attachments. It would be good to add this function

  15. remove snooze option

    Remove or provide option to remove Snooze option in Outlook. It is NOT a feature. It is too easy to mis-select the option on small devices. It is not valuable to all users and an annoyance to many. Valuable time is wasted trying to locate valuable emails when the option is inadvertently selected.

  16. variables automatic replies

    Variables for out of office automatic replies : when editing the reply you oftenly specifies the date and time limits (from dd.MM.yyyy to dd.MM.yyyy)

    Everytime you have to adapt them, this would be awesome to have variables for that, for instance <from> / <to>, so that only the time limits would have to be adapted.

  17. LOST INCOMING EMAIL ICONS

    PUT THE ICONS BACK NEXT TO THE INCOMING MESSAGES. IT IS SO MUCH EASIER TO SCAN MESSAGES USING ICONS WHEN RECEIVING MULTIPLE MESSAGES DAILY.

  18. Drag and Drop Important Emails

    Oftentimes there are emails that I need to reference quicker than my search bar can scan through all of my inbox history. I think it would be interesting if Outlook allowed the opportunity to drag-and-drop important emails needing later referencing to a right panel, or a column within view labeled "To Do," or something along those lines. I'm specifically hoping for this feature in the DoD's use of OWA.
