  1. "NO!" to Suggestions in boxes at Bottom of Email (when replying)

    The suggestions that you post at the bottom of an email that users can select is a very, very bad idea.
    First, it is distracting. If I'm thinking of something to say, my eyes "naturally" are caught by the boxes at the bottom.
    Second, I sift through them to see IF any of the suggestions would work.
    Third, they invariably don't work.
    Fourth, I've now lost productive time AND your AI has messed with my thinking process.
    Fifth, if I would've wanted a suggestion I might ask.
    Sixth, this is an intrusion
    Seventh, we (the humans who use email) don't…

  2. [Dislike]:Cannot receive meeting invitations as .iCalendar attachments.

    Cannot receive meeting invitations as .iCalendar attachments. https://outlook.office365.com/owa/insly.onmicrosoft.com/?path=/options/popandimap doesn't show any selection about meeting invitations. Why M$ must break every working feature?

  5. Ability to open .msg emails in Outlook on the Web by default instead of Outlook Desktop

    There are situations where Outlook emails (.msg) are saved. When they are reopened, they are opened in the Outlook Desktop client app automatically. For users who use Outlook on the Web as their primary Outlook client now, it would be helpful if the Windows Default could be set to "Outlook on the Web" for emails/.msg files. That way .msg files would open in Outlook on the Web by default instead of the Outlook Desktop client.

  6. Microsoft Editor and native browser spellchecking are incompatible, conflict with each other

    MS and Google collaborated on a new spell-checking engine, released on Edge version 83.

    Microsoft Editor is butting heads with the browser's native spell checking - NOT AN EXTENSION - causing an unpleasant experience.

    Even if both engines are set to the same language, red squiggles mark all words as unrecognized. Or words can have double red squiggles.

    Disabling either engine would be bad.

    The browser has a native spell-checker.

    The user should not be forced to disable the native spell checker globally to be able to use Editor on OWA without conflicts.

    OWA (and Word Online) should be able…

  7. Unread first, read below

    Hi,

    This is my first time using outlook.office.com. Coming from Gmail, I liked that I could have my unread emails show up at the top of my inbox, and then have the read emails sorted by date below it. I see that you can filter by unread, but then you can't see the rest of your inbox.

    We have two different resource mailboxes which has similar name and we would like to distinguish these two by icons. In order to make this possible, we are hoping to be able to change icons of resource mailbox.

  11. [Suggestion]:Automatically adding online meeting defaults to Skype and doesn't allow change

    When you enable the option to automatically add online meetings to new events, it adds a Skype meeting, and you can't edit that to be Teams even before you save/send the meeting request.

  12. Perform voice-to-text transcriptions on .mp3 and .wav file attachments

    Many enterprise phone systems (like Cisco Unified Communications (UC)) have the option to send voicemails to email addresses. Those enterprise systems often attach the voicemail to the email as a .mp3 or .wav file. Please perform voice-to-text machine transcriptions of the .wav files in the body of the email message. You already do something similar in Microsoft Stream. Apply that same machine-generated text transcript to each .wav or .mp3 audio file attachment. Another good example of how to do this well is Google Voice, which automatically includes a plain-text transcript of each voicemail received.

  13. Want to customize how the meeting item be displayed in the room calendar

    After we added the organizer name to the subject, the calendar item shows the meeting subject following the organizer name. I would like to customize the item to show the organizer name after the meeting subject.

  14. Add more types of personal calendars for combination with work calendar

    I like the feature that you can combine the calendar from Outlook.com/Hotmail/Live/MSN or Google with your work calendar to view and manage your personal calendar.

    It would be great to add more types of personal accounts and also be able to add another O365 account, as I'm using O365 for work as well as for personal use - but 2 separate subscriptions.

  15. Sender email + showing email address

    I use four different email addresses and I want to be able to distinguish them.
    By having From emailaddress visible,
    not just To, Copy and Subject.
    Now I need to double check which email I´m using.

    +
    Showing the true sender emailaddress
    in my inbox, not just senders nickname and shortening. From my point of view the sender can call him/her self anything between heaven and ..., but by showing the real address I instantly know if its the right or fake person writing the message.

  16. Disable Linked Contacts

    OWA is linking contacts together. When I pull up a contact and call their mobile number, I'm calling the wrong people because contact info from multiple people is mashed together into one contact. How is this a good idea? I need an easy way to de-link EVERYBODY who's linked and have this feature permanently disabled. I can't believe there's no option to turn this off.

  18. Allow us to select a folder to import contacts

    It would be great if we could select a folder to import contacts into My Contacts in Ootw by using PowerShell. We were previously able to specify a certain folder name under the category in the .CSV to import contacts to the preferred location. So we’d like to do so.
