    I think this is a distinction between Outlook's own reminder window and the Windows 10 pop-up reminder window for the same reminder. The Outlook reminder window still has the resolution you seek. I use it all the time. The Windows 10 pop-up window for the same reminder desperately needs to be brought into alignment with the Outlook reminder window. In particular, offering the same collection of "remind me again later" times the Outlook reminder window offers.

    Outlook had per-contact (voice) ringtone support on WinPhone. Implement on Android.

    It appears the Galaxy S9 Contacts app relies on Outlook to manage the Outlook contacts. This is good because it's clean. However it means Outlook needs to learn the concept of setting an optional unique ringtone per contact. Contacts added to the Contacts app itself have the concept.

    There is, no doubt, some complication created by Outlook trying to sync across multiple devices with possibly different ringtones available. Perhaps having a Ringtones field with a

    DeviceName="ringtone"; DeviceName="ringtone";...

    approach might work.

    Or I guess on WinPhone Outlook keeps some fields as only local to the device. Outlook on WinPhone does support per-contact ringtones, so this should be do-able on Android also.

    I was traveling and using my phone to do the sorting through most of my emails. While I could sort my emails into my various folders, I couldn't create a new folder when I needed it. I had to wait until I had free time to boot up my notebook and create the folder.

    The Outlook team should get together with the LinkedIn team. Outlook should make encryption and signing certificates easily managed parts of each contact entry. The LinkedIn team should make it easy for people to share their certifications for others to use. This last part is what will REALLY start some movement on the use of certifications. Also, it seems like LinkedIn should provide as a service an optional pair of certificates it'll create.

    I find myself regularly copy-n-pasting into emails sections of news articles that contain quotations. To be proper, I put the section of the article in quotes, but if the article section itself contains a quote, those quotes need to be changed from double quotation marks to single quotation marks. Being able to select a block of text in Outlook and click on "Put in quotes" or "Remove quotes" which also inverts all the quotation marks in the block would be really great. The main "trick" properly retaining true apostrophes.

    Example:

    Block copied from a book, etc:

    Mark said, "That's great!" before leaving.

    Then pasted into Outlook as quote of the book would become:

    When I was reading the book I liked "Mark said, 'That's great!' before leaving."

    Subscribe to the RSS feed for the "Visual Studio Blog". The pictures of the authors at the bottom of the feed messages are not being formatted properly when compared to the web site. The pictures in Outlook are tall and thin. This is not really a huge issue for this particular case, but it does provide a case to investigate which could easily be impacting rendering problems in other messages.

    Dang, guys. Cool! Just discovered the Inbox rules are sync'in between MSOffice 365 and Outlook.live.com (the Exchange server). Not sure how long ago you guys got that working, but I do remember when it was a bother to have to go live.com to set up the rules that would also get messages organized for my phone and tablet. Great work!

    Hey for spam, way too often the sender's full email address doesn't work. The senders also fake the sender's address or they're sending (innocently) through some common other domain.

    What tends to work better is searching for the sender's domain (only the part after the @) using "anywhere in the header". So when going to add a new rule while having a message selected, can we get a quick option (under Office 365 and Live.Com) to set up such a rule: "domain anywhere in header moves to a folder."

    The domain can be easily guessed if a message is selected, but the user should be able to easily change it. The destination folder might be less obvious to guess and the user should definitely be expected to specify one even if there is a first "best guess".

    Also when creating an advanced rule under Outlook 365, the conditions list has items underlined like hotlinks. That is just screaming the suggest that the user should be able to click on that "hotlink" in the list to not only select that condition but also automatically bring up the data entry dialog all in one click.

    Creating new inbox rules is reasonably easy. There is a desperate need for a clean organized way to manage an extensive list of existing rules.

    There might be some logic to alternatively present rules based on what action they take as the first grouping condition, and then what rule as the second grouping, and the parameter for the rule as the third grouping.

    For example:
    Move to
    Spam Folder
    If sender's address contains
    email.spamsender.com

    Nearly all my rules are based on that pattern as what proven to be the most reliable way to route messages from known senders to specific folders under InBox. So realistically a more organize way for me to review my rules is to look at all the conditions that'll route a message to the "Spam" folder, or the "Microsoft" folder or the "CitiBank" folder.

    For a business-to-business company like MSFT, this should be a "given". It really isn't about SENDING text messages so much as CAPTURING and ORGANIZING text messages. In business we keep a history of emails for future reference. Same needs to be true for text messages. Getting to the bottom of things, text messages are really just emails sent through a different channel. They should be handled very much the same by Outlook.

    Cortana now sends texts from the desktop Win10 to the users Win10 mobile phone and then out to the addressee. Outlook should do the same, and in reverse. Outlook on the phone should collect inbound text messages into Outlook folder(s) that then sync to the other copies of Outlook (desktop, tablet, etc).
