  4. 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.…

  5. Show a warning message when enable/disable the transport rule in the Exchange admin center

    To avoid misconfiguration, it would be great if a warning message shows up when a user attempt to switch enable/disable on any transport rule in the Exchange admin center.

  6. Custom Mail Tips based on headers

    Lets say inbound email has failed SPF or DKIM check, we do not want to block those emails, today we have a rule to edit the email subject so end-user is aware of it.

    what if instead of editing subject or body, i would have a rule to add custom header (Security: SPF-FAIL) on my mail relay, then i would have a transport rule:
    if header Security: SPF-FAIL exist then add mail tip: "warning this email failed bla bla bla"

  7. Please show the caller name registered in the directory when I received the call on the smartphone which is connected to Exchange ActiveSync

    It would be great if the caller name registered in the directory would be shown on the smartphone devices which is connected to Exchange ActiveSync. The caller name is currently not shown on the smartphone even if the caller was registered in the directory.

  11. Add a Backdrop option!! (Please)

    I should be able to use Skype for business in a broken down bathroom in an abandoned building (for privacy) and the background should be a solid grey photo backdrop/background or several other business neutral colors.

    (Photographers use backdrops to create a professional portrait or picture)

    It should not appear fake or have any glitches which would reveal the actual background during an interview or business meeting.

    That way, there is no concern about the background and an interview or business meeting can be professional for everyone no matter the environment or circumstance.

    Ensuring there are no private sticky notes…

    ■Description(内容):
    現在、[Office 365 セキュリティ/コンプライアンス] - [脅威の管理] - [確認] - [検疫] 内の "ファイル" の検疫画面では、単独でファイルを選択した場合に、[検疫から削除] ボタンがグレイアウトして押せません。

  18. Updating user contact information, phone numbers now require a "valid format"

    Recently I have spent sometime updating user contact information in our office 365 system. I have been using the new admin centre and for some reason it was decided that a phone number now has to follow a "valid format" or else it won't let you save the updated information. This "valid format" appears to mean that no spaces are allowed in the phone number.

    Now, the reason that this is an issue is because of how we typically format phone numbers in the UK. For mobile numbers, the most popular method is 5 digits, a space and then 6…
