  1. Include an option for borders in outgoing emails

    It would be nice to have an option of making an outgoing email look like it was typed on decorative stationery. Possibly just include an option for a border around the content of the email.

  2. Filter Emails by Date

    The Search results appearing in the latest update are not filtering Newest on Top by date. The email is not in the order. It would be nice if its working good as before the update.

  4. Stop leaking Primary address when sending from Alias

    Remove Primary email address from the email headers when sending from a verified Alias. This leak of information removes most of the reason for having an Alias in the first place.

  5. Show the follow-up reminder to recipients even if they deleted the flagged e-mail

    A sender can send a flagged email to recipients, but if the recipients delete the flagged e-mail, the follow-up reminder won’t be popped up to the recipients.
    So, I would like to show the follow-up reminder to recipients even if they deleted the flagged e-mail.

  6. template

    Why are templates restricted to 32mb in MS Outlook? Can this limit be increased? Is there some kind of extension that can be used with MS Outlook to allow numerous email templates? I really need the functionality of template. Using signature for this purpose is problematic because you cannot employ multiple signatures in an email, so I need to use templates.

    Any insight is most welcome.

  9. Default Safe Senders

    DEFAULT SAFE SENDERS
    I would like to see everyone on my contact list automatically be added to my safe sender list. If they weren’t safe I wouldn’t have them set up as my own contacts. This should be the default in the system.

  10. Custom Domain - Without being forced to use Godaddy

    One of the biggest reasons I use GSuite is because I am able to use a custom domain name from any registrar. Why is it that we are forced to use a registrar such as GoDaddy. Who are a greedy awful company at best. Please allow us to use a custom domain from any registrar and then I will consider moving my email.

  11. Mail merge using Outlook in Microsoft 365

    I frequently need to mail merge emails and do so easily from the office using Word and Outlook. Currently working from home, I'm unable to do it using the web mail version of my account. Instead I BCC, which results in messages being bounced, blocked and junked.

  13. 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.

  14. 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…

  15. 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…

  16. Option to Turn-off Junk folder or wildcard to white-list all internet

    Nearly all the emails I receive, like 90%, go into Junk folder, but no of them is actually Spam. And now it has started to be even worse. I want to Turn off Junk folder, completely. I don't get nearly any Spam - never. I don't need and don't want Junk folder. The folder never worked, at all. Or I need a wild card rule to white-list whole domain like .com. or whole internet like "".

  17. subject suggestion

    Is it possible to create a suggested Subject text based on the email content?
    Gmail do it and it's super useful to tab across to accept. Thanks!

  18. proof

    A few days ago I sent an email for a job offer. The other party have not received the email. I didn't participated in the competition and I lost the job offer. When I objected they asked me for a proof from the email provider in order to accept the objection.

    "That's not an option!!"

    Do your best and create official proofs that the mails are sent, only by asking them!

    Move on, be better than yesterday!!!

  19. Detach with link

    One function I miss in Outlook is what could be called “Detach with link”.
    On other mail systems I used before, the function “Detach” would download the attached file to a folder of one’s choice, removing it from the mail. Relation between mail and attachment would be lost.
    “Detach with link” would allow to download the file the same way, removing it from the mail, but would as well insert a permanent link on the mail’s body, relating it to the original file on it’s new location: PC, hard-disk, cloud, etc.
    Whenever necessary, say you can’t find the downloaded file,…
