  1. Exchange Transport Rule - add "Wrap message and forward to recipient" action

    In my scenario, I manage a list of known senders of my organization, and would like to have an option to wrap the messages that are not in "known senders" list.

    This can be implemented with just 2 rules:
    1. Match the sender in domain list and stop processing more rules.
    2. All other messages should be wrapped and delivered to original recipient with disclaimer.

    This would boost the awareness of recipients and should reduce related frauds that use look-a-like domains techniques.

  2. [Dislike]:Should be able to view 'raw messages' outside of email messages

    allow users to view 'raw messages' outside of an email message. It doesn't make sense to open a email message to then click on to view 'raw messages' and see email's info. You should be able to view 'raw messages' before opening an email message.

  3. category

    Assign multiple categories in a row to a mail message, without the need to right click and going through submenus for each assignment.

  4. [Suggestion]:Allow for (easily) externally addressable distribution lists.

    Within gSuite and O365 B/E it is easily possible to create e-mail distribution lists that can be addressed externally. We use this feature to be reachable by persons and institutions that can only store one e-mail address, but need to reach either us as parents (parents@example.com) or the whole family (family@example.com).
    The Groups feature allows for the creation of an e-mail address per group (which then acts as a DL) but external senders need to be authorised explicitly. This is a massive overhead, especially as sometimes we cannot predict the sender's address (principle@, schooloffice@, teacher1@, teacher2@,…

  6. [Dislike]:New category: Hate Something!

    I now have to double click on my E-Mail Messages to read them instead of having them open in the reading pane.

    I want the ability to open my mail in the reading pane, vice having to open another tab on my Taskbar.

    This is not a request, it is a DEMAND!

  7. 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.

  8. [Suggestion]:Pop up personal note for special email addresses

    I hope to add personal note to some special email addresses. For example, if I receive from a bank called "BECU Notifications" I like to immediately see my personal note says "this is my business bank." It will also help to identify all other emails. Another example is when I see Xfinity I like to see a pop up note "this is home wifi." Thanks very much!!!

  9. 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.

  12. 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.

  16. [Dislike]:Fix bug in Focused Inbox algorithm

    I have no rules and no sweeps but still some messages are being delivered directly to the Other Inbox. CLEARLY a bug since with no rules or sweeps they should all be delivered to the Focused Inbox first. Please fix.

  17. [Dislike]:Bottom slide button doesn't appear

    Bottom slide line does not appear if I am at the top of the e-mail. It is appearing when i am at the bottom of the e-mail. It is too hard always go down and slide right or left.

  18. [Dislike]:Security Backup

    Backup security doesn't work well. I was asked if an old email account was my current security I wanted to use. I switched to my cell number. Then I was told I had to enter a code sent to my old email, that I didn't know how to access, to re-enter email or be locked out for one month. Horrible. I spent an hour figuring out how to get back into the old email and cancelled the security switch, (which required entering a code). Bad design.

  19. [Dislike]:don't break things that aren't broken

    why did u move the MOVE feature off the main menu? we use this feature frequently and don't need to add another click to get there when it was fine where it was! FIRE those idiots making these unnecessary changes that waste our time!

    youth laugh at us for still using hotmail. if u want to keep us oldsters using yur system, stop ruining it!
