  1. Ability to BLOCK self-service purchase capabilities for Power Platform products

    Message centre update refers : MC193609 Self-service purchase capabilities for Power Platform products (Power BI, PowerApps, and Flow) will be available for commercial cloud customers starting 11/19.

    We need the ability to block this on tenant level with immediate effect. The platform will become ungovernable in a very short period and cause massive governance issues.

    UPDATE as of October 31, 2019: Over the past week, we’ve been listening to your feedback regarding the rollout of our self-service purchase capabilities for Power Platform products. To those of you who provided your input, thank you! Based on your feedback, we’ve adjusted our approach to better address the needs of both IT admins and end users within organizations. Please check MC193609 in your Message center to see the details.

  2. Configure Preferences for Report Message Add-In

    The Report Message Add-In can be deployed centrally but there should be a method to control the settings/preferences in it centrally. For example, set the default option for reporting preference (e.g. always send, never send, ask every time). This should be configurable somewhere (e.g. registry key, GPO, Centralized Deployment manager, Exchange Online policy, etc. The default to ask every time is not the setting we want for our organization, but there is no way currently to reconfigure the default. Please reconsider this.

  3. Exchange Online Powershell with Service Principal

    I'd like to run the exchange online powershell with a service principal. The use case is easy - we're running a background service setting some specific configuration on user mailboxes and don't want to use an admin account for that. It's sad this is not on the graph directly possible but at least make SPNs available for use with Exchange Powershell.

  5. Enable DKIM for Office 365 Home with custom email domain

    The Office 365 Home subscription allows you to use your your own email domain. However, there is no option to enable DKIM and without it, outgoing email often ends up in the recipient's Spam folder, making the custom email domain capability useless.

    Please expose the DKIM setting on the UI for O365 Home subscribers.
    The feature itself is already implemented and available in the Business edition, but requires the Admin panel which does not exist in Office 365 Home.

  6. Require TLS Fallback Automatically to OME

    When sending e-mails out with sensitive content, we can currently use a Transport Rule to detect said content (Sensitive Info Types) and take an action. Would like to be able to create a transport rule that first does "Require TLS." However, if TLS is not supported by the receiving server, have Office 365 automatically fail back over to OME and send out the e-mail securely that way. With Require TLS, if the receiving server doesn't support TLS, the user has to wait to find out that their e-mail did not go through. They also have to resend the e-mail manually.…

  7. Remove case sensitive searches for shared mailboxes and permissions

    Over the last month or so case sensitive searches have been added into the shared mailbox and permissions sections on the Office 365 admin page. Could these be reverted back or was there a reason for case sensitive searches being added?

    I had weeks of no results coming back until I spoke to Microsoft Support who also have the issue and they noticed it is now case sensitive.

  8. Verify Unknown source Email ID

    Hi,

    We have configured SMTP Mail relay Server in our local network. I have allowed one system from Relay Server to send mail from application. But one drawback is that, if I used any unknown Email ID (not exist or created in our domain) to send mail from application to valid Email Address; and it successfully delivered (Not giving error such as, Source Mail Id is not valid).
    For eg., I have not created any User Email ID or Group Email ID or alias in our domain like user.name@abc.com. It is unknown (not exist) Email ID. But when I…

  9. Add Directory back to OWA and the new Outlook

    Bring back the Address Book directory to OWA in the new outlook.

    We segment staff, students and other districts into separate address lists. Staff can only see staff and students can only see students in their respective GAL's. By doing this segmentation method we cannot search addresses contained in other addresses lists.

    We also need the directory for easy address lookup. With thousands of accounts in our address lists we don't always know the spelling of a users name. We need to be able to scroll the list to find users.

  10. Is it possible to add an funcation to delete the wrong recipient information on webmail cache for all the related users?

    For example, we created an user's email box and the user communicated with other users. After some times, we had to change the profile for this user due to some reasons. The wrong recipient information is still keeping on the webmail cache. We have to ask the related uses to delete it themselves. It's really a big trouble. If we can delete it for them on the Admin center, that will be easy.

  11. Allow reconcile of conflicting service options across licensing plans

    Assigning licenses for service options across license plans is buggy and unpredictable. E.g. You have enabled SharePoint Online (Plan 1) service option in a licensing plan that's assigned to a group via Azure AD. Project Online has SharePoint Online (Plan 2) and you'd like to assign the license to your Project Services Role Group. You can't because, it won't let you disable SP Plan 1 from the existing licensing plan and then you can't enable SP Plan 2 because SP Plan 1 is already enabled. Project Online demands that you use SP Plan 2. Basically, you're snookered. If this issue…

  12. Change default language of tenant

    After a tenant is created the tenant language cannot be changed. If the tenant was initialy created with the local language of the headquater of a company (not English) there is no possibility to change the language to the best fit for all users, e.g. English.
    That causes that automated mails are sent in the tenants language to users worldwide and that there are mails that have a mixed of languages.
    If should be possible to change the default languange of the tenant after the initial creation.

  13. Block updating the value of WhenCreated and SamAccountName

    The values of WhenCreated and SamAccountName which are retrieved by running Get-Mailbox, Get-MailContact and Get-DistributionGroup could be updated unintentionally by some actions such as tenant relocation, so I would like these properties to keep the original value.

  14. Important improvements in the false-positive rate of the outbound spam classification [Ticket #:16175857]

    I reported some issues concerning Office 365 outbound spam detection to Microsoft under [Ticket #:16175857].
    Outbound spam detected mails are sent through a high-risk delivery pool (HRDP) and hence are highly probable of not being accepted by business partners.
    Here are our improvement suggestions:

    (1.)
    At the moment, forwarded emails that contain links pointing to safelinks.protection.outlook.com from another Microsoft client who uses the SafeLinks feature will be classified by Microsoft's Exchange Online as outbound spam, if replied to or otherwise forwarded.
    This behavior should be changed. Links that are manipulated by Microsoft's own SafeLinks feature should not be classified as…

  15. Office365 - Multiple Domains - Shared mailboxes with common start (ie sales@)

    Office365 - Multiple Domains - Shared mailboxes with common start (ie sales@).

    When you have a single office365 installation that has multiple domains, it is not possible to create the same prefix of an email (ie before the @ sign) for shared mail boxes on the different domains.

    For example, if I want to have sales@ on Domain1.com, Domain2.com and Domain3.com, I could successfully create sales@Domain1.com but when I try to create sales@Domain2.com I get an error about the alias already being used.

    This has been touched on a number of sites, here is one:

    https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/Office-365/Shared-mailbox-with-the-same-email-local-part-can-t-be-created/m-p/258227

  16. Don't deprecate Search-Mailbox in EXO

    "Note : In cloud-based environments, the Search-Mailbox cmdlet is being deprecated in favor of New-ComplianceSearch"

    Replacing the capability of Search-Mailbox with the new ComplianceSearch and ComplianceSearchActions cmds is a terrible user experience and moves a single step process to a multi-step process with manual intervention. If this functionality is to go away for good, this will severely hinder our ability to execute requests in a timely and efficient manner.

    I would argue that these are different use cases and can easily co-exist in the tenant.

    O365 is supposed to be in the business of streamlining processes with efficiency, not convoluting…

  18. One Drive share links are not eliminated until the retention period ends

    For security reasons it will be good that the shared links from ONEDRIVE be eliminated for external sharing once the account it is eliminated from Azure AD not when the retention period end. Internals links are ok to maintain but not the external. We have users leaving the company and sharing with their social emails the entire Onedrive folder.

  19. Unified inbox for outlook on Windows 10! ❤

    Outlook 365 for Windows needs a unified Inbox similar to ALL other Outlook apps. For those of us with multiple email accounts. It would be very convenient to have all emails arrive in one inbox instead of clicking the whole time through all Inboxes, which consumes a lot of time.

  20. Deterring Reply All for large number of recipients

    Add a "are you sure you want to proceed" prompt if a user wants to "reply all" when the "To" field has more than X number of recipients or more than X number of DL's. Goal is to avoid unnecessary Mail Storms.
