  1. Customise the limit of recipients a given user can email at one time

    I would like the ability to assign a policy to a student license that only allows them to email a particular number of recipients (10 in total).
    I would like to be able to assign a policy to a faculty license that allows them to send to 5000 recipients.

    This will stop mass mailing internally. This has caused my students to start arguments over email, thankfully we have been able to mitigate against any fights so far.

  3. Provide for insertion of RCPT-TO (envelope sender) in messages

    When using an email filter in the mail flow to Bcc a message to an alternate destination, the envelope sender (RCPT-To) is understandably changed to the new Bcc destination. It would be nice to be able to include the original envelope destination in, e.g. in an X-Original-To header.

    This could be done with a dedicated option, or by allowing variable substitution in the "add a header" filter action.

  4. paramétrer outlook de sorte que s'ouvre non seulement la messagerie, mais aussi le calendrier et les tâches

    il serait agréable de paramétrer outlook de sorte que s'ouvre non seulement la messagerie, mais aussi le calendrier et les tâches, les fenêtres justement dimensionnées en plein écran.

  5. Need Billing Admin in Small Business Licenses.

    Small Business licenses need to be able to assign a Billing Admin. The Global administrator is infrequently the Accounting Team or a Billing Administrator. Billing Admin needs to be able to access invoices and make payments without giving them the keys to the kingdom!

  7. Allow a user access to OneDrive only from specific computers, on the LAN, or local domain.

    For security, we want to be able to restrict users from accessing OneDrive for Business from outside of the office. My posts to forums returns the answer that this cannot be done right now.

  9. SharePoint delete document versions in Document Library

    When deactivating the versions in Document Library you should be able to delete the versions. It takes up a LOT of space that could be cleared. There is no way to complete this task without powershell!!

  10. tenant or site collection control of suite bar alert notifications.

    Currently users get the alerts and associated sounds by default. Allow admins to control who gets the default suite bar alerts at the site collection or tenant level.

  11. how about telling us how many users are in a view?

    when you open Admin>Users>Active Users I would like to know how many active users there are. is that a really really tough thing to show? you know, like a number at the bottom? and if you have a programmer with more than basic skill maybe you could even put a number at the bottom of a view so that I can know how many people are in a view? I apologize for tasking you with something difficult but I notice the exchange dept tells me how many mailboxes there are so maybe you could ask them for help with this?…

  12. Allow Licensing As Part Of Migrating Users

    We are at the tail end of migrating between 3,000 and 4,000 users to O365. We have also heard repeatedly that Powershell type scripting is not supported. The consultants who are helping us with the migration have scripts that can run through a batch and apply licenses. Without that it becomes a major time consumer. I'd like to suggest that the ability be added when creating/migrating a user, that there is an option to apply a license.

    Since we can change a password in the .csv that gives the batch members, it should be possible to include a column "License".…

  13. Allow splitting a message copy to a connector

    As far as I'm aware, one can use a filter to redirect incoming mail to a certain connector, but one can not redirect a copy of mail to that connector while leaving the original delivery path unaltered. It would be very handy.

    Adding a Bcc is an alternative, but it suffers two flaws: one cannot specify an IP address as a destination, and one loses the envelope information (rcpt-to) in the process.

  14. In folders other than the inbox, save replies with original message

    Since moving replies from the sent folder to the appropriate content folder is time consuming, it would be outstanding to have the option to save replies with the original message automatically.

  15. Provide Version Info Anytime the Feature Set Changes

    Features changes within an SharePoint Online tenant frequently a) cause issues and b) catch SharePoint admins by surprise. There is not a good mechanism in place to let a tenant know the exact day a new set of features are being rolled out to their tenant. This often results in app compatibility issues, changed UI, end user confusion, etc. You should have a well-known and prescriptive versioning process in place for ANY feature changes you make to a tenant. This should be programmatically accessible so that we can have apps check learn about these changes the day they happen and…

  17. Increase the maximum message size for large distribution groups

    Increase the maximum message size for large distribution groups from 2Mb to something like 5Mb.
    If the Admin can configure this, that would be grate.
