  1. Outlook Rules recovery

    I know about the Export/Import rules in Outlook but MS should add an option to recover or restore Outlook rules via Exchange Admin center.

  2. Customize Quarantine Access Permissions

    Able to customize the access on Quarantine areas. By default, users can access Spam / High Confidence Spam / Phishing areas. To reduce the risk, if Exchange Admin can customize the access permissions to those areas and only allow access to Spam, it can reduce the risk for company.

  4. Enable Dynamic (Plus) Email Addresses for Distribution Lists

    The recent plus addressing feature (https://office365.uservoice.com/forums/273493-office-365-admin/suggestions/18612754-support-for-dynamic-email-aliases-in-office-365) appears to only work for mailboxes, not distribution lists.  The primary reason we wanted this feature was to enable teams without permission to create distribution lists or modify the alternate email addresses on their distribution lists to effectively create unique addresses on the fly.  There are a number of services which require unique email addresses be used to create each account and this would allow us to easily tie those accounts back to a single existing DL without engaging our Enterprise Services team each time to add a new address. Please allow…

  6. Allow duplicate emails in Exchange

    Allow exchange to receive duplicate emails. By default, the message will be delivered only once even if it has the same mailbox as a recipient twice but it would be helpful to be able to receive duplicate emails in exchange even if it has the same mailbox as a recipient twice (such as individually and sent to a Gmail account which has a forwarding rule to the exchange account). This is to verify that the email sent on Gmail was received without logging in to the Gmail

  8. office 365 admin do have all granule control for preventing end users prevent setting inbox forwarding rules for internal/external

    well, I feel like, insisted of putting unnecessary burden for tenant admin to creating mail-flow rules. Microsoft must develop the easiest way to prevent end users for creating inbox rules in outlook client to forwarding emails. because I still have a question can we completely block/prevent end users not to set mail forwarding rule in outlook client 2016/2019

  9. Move specific email folders to another mailbox

    Create an powershell commandlet (or edit an existing one) to move specific folders from one mailbox to another.

    The MS documentation say we should fallback to pst, but it seems they forget about kiosk users. They can't use outlook.

  10. Enable end meeting early for the organization

    We would like to enable in OWA, end meeting early, by default for our organization. This will allow us to enforce users to have enough time in between meetings and to change meeting rooms when on site.

  11. Remove email signatures from incoming emails

    There are senders who has a lot of attachments on their email signatures as they send their emails and sometimes, those attachments carry risks on the receiving accounts. I want to be able to remove those signatures as we receive them maybe through a mail flow rule to lessen risks instead of just blocking the attachments and sending the email to Quarantine.

  12. Create a radial on ticket creation to confirm it is the correct tenant

    As a Microsoft support agent we are held to a high privacy standard to protect our customers. This gets a bit convuluted when the customer has a third party IT support. Too many times a ticket is opened up under the IT company's tenant instead of the customer tenant we need to work on. This puts us in a bad situation as we have to tell them to open a new ticket under the correct tenant. This causes frustration and lowers customer satisfaction and delays resolution.

    Solution: Add a Yes/No radial when creating a ticket asking if the tenant you…

  14. I had to get help for the Office 365 mail quarantine function tod

    Mail Quarantine does not work well. It will not remove released messages from the quarantined list. Sometimes it throws errors. The administration of the services is too granular and you have to have about a week of training to work it. There should be a single button that will allow us to bypass the function. Outlook can handle the problems.

  15. Variables for customizing administrator notifications in anti-malware policies.

    There is an item in the anti-malware policy to customize the content of notification to the administrator when malware is detected, and there is an item to add a message to the body of the email.
    I want to use variables in this item to add dynamic text to the message.

    Example:
    Sender:% s
    Recipient:% r
    Sending server IP address:% S
    Subject:% t
    Date:% d
    Message ID:% i
    Virus, Unauthorized code:% v
    Email quarantined on mail server:% m (Pen ID:% q)

    This description is based on customer inquiries.

  16. Mail Flow Rules - give ability to block internal only emails

    Mail Flow Rules - give ability to block emails with only internal recipients

    In Mail Flow Rules, under All This Rule, please add "All recipients include... " or something like that under the options for "Apply this rule if..." so that we can block emails which have only internal recipients since those conversations should be happening in Teams.

    Also, ideally we would be able to allow calendar invites to come through.

    Thanks!

  17. Check is a domain name is already registered with another tenant

    We would like (for migrations and M&As) to be able to validate if a domain is registered with another tenant. I know this can be done when importing the domain in, but sometimes we just need to know if the domain is free or not, without having to add it into our own.

  20. Display email address: Alias

    Emails that arrive at an alias address will be displayed and processed as emails that arrive at a user with a Primary SMTP Address.
    I want to confirm that the mail that arrived at the alias address arrived at the alias address without using SMTP Plus Address.
