Remove reliance on LegacyExchangeDN in Outlook

It's 2013 and we still have a reliance on the LegacyExchangeDN within the Outlook client.

 

Update all supported clients to only cache the SMTP address in the autocomplete/nickname cache and when stored as properties on items.

Prepopulated FROM:

Pre-filled FROM: dropdown listbox in mail composition form (also OWA), using info from delegated / shared mailboxes a.o. (Send-As) to populate. More end-user friendly than typing in the 'from' address (once) or picking entry from GAL (when shown).

"Take ownership" of orphaned meetings

When someone leaves the company, they often have recurring meetings that remain on other calendars. We need a way to take ownership of a meeting - have the system check to see if the owner's account still exists (or isn't disabled and a resource account, for those companies like mine that don't delete mailboxes for a month after the colleqague leaves the company), and if the owner account doesn't exist (or is like the ...more »

Separate Outlook auto archiving for separate accounts

Right now, if you enable the client side auto archiving in Outlook, and have multiple accounts configured in Outlook, all messages from all accounts are archived into the same .pst file. This should not be the case.

Searchable Dumpster in Outlook

Since Exchange 2010 the Dumpster is a Folder in each Users Mailbox and therefore is full text indexed. In OWA the user interface allows searching the dumpster while Outlook doesn't. Please add this functionality in Outlook. (In fact the UI for the Dumpster is the same since Outlook 98 :-( )

Separate S/MIME configuration for separate email accounts

Each email account configured in Outlook should have separate S/MIME configuration. Right now, if you configure Outlook with an S/MIME cert on one account, and set it auto encrypt, it applies those settings to all email accounts, even those you don't have an S/MIME cert for.

Allow Resize of Message "Properties" Window

When viewing the properties of an email to look at message headers, the window cannot be resized.

 

The result is that the message headers wrap several lines and you have to copy and paste into notepad to make them usable.

 

Allowing the user to simply resize the width of that window would make reading of those headers easier.

Shared mailbox : save drafts into the drafts folder of the share

In a shared mailbox (or a mailbox open by delegation), mails drafts are saved in the drafts folder of the personal mailbox and not in the drafts folder of the mailbox. Users never think about moving again to the folder in the mailbox.

Outlook Email Sorting and Archiving

There should be a tool on emails suggesting the folders to archive them based on matching words from new email and existing emails, i.e.: There is a topic under discussion on an email chain and you have already created a folder to store these emails. When you receive a new email about this topic, you can read the email still on your Inbox and there is an option on the email itself suggesting to store this email on that ...more »

See free/busy data for everyone in all my organizations

I have two Exchange accounts registered in Outlook, one for Company A (e.g. my employer) and one for Company B (e.g. my client's firm - I'm a consultant). If I am trying to schedule a meeting with people from both organizations, I should be able to see everyone's free/busy data in the Scheduling Assistant view, not just the ones in the organization of the account that is sending the meeting invite.

Add more colour options to Outlook

Looking all day at a stark white or mildly white 29inch Outlook pane is troublesome. We're not all tablet users with finger smudged screens to reduce the brightness.

Unsubscribe from group emails

There should be an option to unsubscribe from group emails if you feel you're not necessary for the discussion.

It would alert the person who initiated the email chain of your request to unsubscribe and they can approve/disapprove the request.

If approved, all participants will have you removed from the email chain.

This would require saving the group details on the server I think to manage the subscribers.
