It should be possible to configure defaults for this.
1. A feature to add new default
2. Select when to apply this default
b) Public Holidays
d) Specific Public Holiday (Christmas and so on)
3. Possibility to set restriction to only use default if it more than X days remaining when the message is received...should probably be a generic setting for this that apply to all defaults)
It should also be possible to define these defaults on a company level, and then users could opt in to use company defaults, only their own or defaults plus any overrides they specify.
There should probably be settings on to company level on how mandatory the company defaults are.
The search feature in Outlook is the only thing that's worse than search in Windows.
As it is now, you have no clue what you will get back, if anything...it seem ind of random.
I can be looking at a mail in the inbox, copy a word in that mail, paste it in the search field, and then be told there are no messages that match the search criteria.
Until the guys creating the indexing service used by Outlook get their **** together, Outlook must implement a fallback based on a brute force foreach to make sure users of Outlook have a search they can trust.
Also, implement some way of telling the index system it is messed up and that it should repair itself.
Also, search all mailboxes should do just det, search all mailboxes, as it is now it doesn't search imap/pop3 mailboxes.

Before the introduction of colored categories, categories could be used as tags. And by tags I mean a a comma separated list of keywords that you want to associate the current item with. Then when you search by tag it goes very fast and you get those items with the tag/tags you searched for.
There should be a Tag text field at the bottom of every form where you can write a comma separated list of tags. You should get "intelligence" for these tags.
There should be a "special" node in the navigation tree for tags.
At the root level unique/distinct list of all known tags. When you click a tag you should see messages with that tag.
The tree node tag should be expandable, and when expanded should show a unique/distinct list of tags from those items that contain the parent tag (recuse).
Also the search engine needs to be extended to handle tags, so a search something like this would work "tag:MyTag1,MyTag2, MyTag3" (notice the space between 2 & 3)
