  2. Edit/Disable cache of email addresses entered

    If I make a mistake when typing in an email address, Outlook caches it somewhere and then I'm unable to edit my mistake. Forever, it keeps suggesting (and trying to autocomplete) using my mistakenly typed address.

    How about just using MY ENTRIES in PEOPLE, and stop presuming you know what I want or need?

    I want to be able to edit/delete what's in that cache of addresses, or at least toggle whether or not Outlook uses that.

    Lack of ability to control this behavior will indeed drive me to a competing product for email.

  3. Customizing folders

    Customizing Folders: We need to be able to change the color, font, etc. of folders. Apparently, MS does not let people customize their mail folders by color, font, etc. This is a problem and extremely frustrating for people with vision issues. The bland sameness of everything blends together and makes quick access difficult for those of us who do not have fabulous sight. Is this something that is going to change soon? It does not seem to be something that would be terribly difficult since other platforms do it. Please, I would like to now immediately if this feature becomes…

  4. open emails in .html instead of .mhtml to remove the need for Internet Explorer

    Change the format to .html for emails that display "If there are problems with how this message is displayed, click here to view it in a web browser." Opening Emails in Internet Explorer is a Security Risk and does not take advantage of Edge's more secure browser.

  7. 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.

  8. new message alert for focused inbox only

    Can we filter new message alerts to apply to "focused" emails only and not "other" emails? I waste a lot of time going back into Outlook to view a new message only to discover that it is in the "other" folder and I delete it. This switching negatively impacts my productivity so it would be great to eliminate this noise for "other" emails only. Thank you!

  9. Mute

    OUTLOOK MUTE WORDS.

    I work for any organization with over 4,500 staff. Sometimes, I receive unsolicited emails due to service downtime for some SBUs or birthday wishes and the escalation just won't stop.

    It gets annoying sometimes and I wish I could just mute some keywords that I do not want to see in my mail. Just a feature that allows me to remove a colleague's mail due to some keywords from my timeline. I should also he able to unmute them at any time.

  10. Outlook Web App Integration With OneNote

    Sticky Note has already been integrated in Outlook Web. Just a simple click on Notes can show the set of Sticky Notes already available. What if OneNote is also integrated with Outlook Web app. One click would help us to navigate through all notes in OneNote without having the need to toggle between OneNote Web app & Outlook Web app.

  12. [Suggestion]:Customize top icons menu

    Customize top icons menu: right now when I select an email I see "Delete" "Not Junk" "Move to" "Categorize" and "...". However, I rarely use "Not Junk" "Move To" or "Categorize". I much more often use "Mark as Read/Unread" but these appear in the "...". Why do they have to be in the "..."? Please include an option in the "..." called "Customize", then let us decide which menu items we want and which order we want them in.

  14. 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.

  15. 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.

  18. 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

  20. 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.
