  3. Stop putting names on my email addresses

    Stop putting names on my email addresses without my approval! Stop guessing at names! and inserting them in headers. Never change a name without asking the user to set the name first.

  5. Large File in drag & drop

    When we drag file which is larger then 33 md it shows an error, Instead it should show a option to continue with one drive (to save the time of repeating the process with attach file option), same as we Attach larger files through Attach Option.

  6. Negating email rules

    Inbox rules do not allow negation, what if I want to forward most email but NOT if the sender address is x. Being able to negate a rule is a must have.

  9. AutoFormat - option to disable.

    When I type a hyphen then a space (like '- ' when I manually type my signature, "- Ben") then it automatically formats it into a bullet list which I don't want.

    If this was Word then there's a small pop-up with an option to disable AutoFormat. Could we not have this in Outlook too?

  11. Let me Have a Bunch of Emails Selected and not Have them be Deselected when I Click on an Email

    When clean out my inbox, I'm not always sure what an email's content is and whether I need it. So, I click on it to see what's in it, but this deselects all the emails I have selected in my inbox to delete. It's very frustrating to have to go through and re-select them, especially if I haven't cleaned out my inbox in a while. I'm thinking about switching to Gmail because they don't have this issue. Please fix this!!!

  12. Selecting text is broken

    Copy n paste is broken. If you hold ctrl and shift down, then cursor left and right, it moves from word to word rather than selecting the words.

  15. Email attachment blocking from untrusted senders

    Maybe this functionality already exists. I think you should prevent email attachments from opening from untrusted senders across the board. Perhaps a prompt, saying opening attachments from untrusted senders is blocked by default, these can contain harmful malware and viruses, do you want to add this user to your trusted sender's list and open the attachment anyway? Users in the contacts list would be trusted by default. I see attachments showing in junk email. I think these should be blocked while it's in junk email. I sometimes accidentally click on things when using the sensitive touchpad on my laptop. Mostly,…

  16. NVDA screen reader doesn't read the auto complete info

    NVDA screen reader doesn't report the suggested email addresses of the to field when composing a new email.

    3. press "n" to compose a new message
    4. move the focus to the to field if necessary
    5. start typing an email address which will be auto completed by outlook.
    expected:
    NVDA reports the suggested contacts by the auto complete feature.
    actual:
    NVDA doesn't report anything. Even pressing down arrow doesn't cause any announcement also.
    notes:
    The issue maybe applies for other…
