  2. Double click Group message in Outlook to Open

    In Outlook 2016 if the user disables the reading pane, they are unable to view the group message contents. Double clicking on the group message in does nothing. This should work to open the message the same way it works for mail items. As a work around the users are clicking the "forward" button to open the message.

  3. Office 365 Groups: Allow CONTROL OF VISIBILITY in Outlook for group inbox/calendar

    Current state: When you belong to a group, the group inbox appears automatically in Outlook, and the calendar does NOT appear unless you "Add to Favorites".

    I would like to have the ability, as a user or as an admin (configuration) to manage visibility of inbox or calendar.

    Scenario 1: As the CEO of my small organization, I belong to almost every group. I simply don't need to have that many inboxes visible in Outlook. We use groups for "shared inboxes" (e.g. IT support, info@, etc.) and I don't need all of those cluttering up my Outlook 2016 UI. In…

  4. Colour Outlook inbox folders

  5. Allow control of maximum message size users can send to if total recipients > x.

    We want to allow some users to send mesages to the entire organisation but we also want to limit the size of the messages that can be sent to a large audience. The current parameters used in O365 cannot be changed and are set too high. What is needed are 2 parameters, 'Maximum Recipients' and 'Maximum Recipients Size' so if a message is sent to an audiuence that is greater that the 'Maximum Recipients' value then the message can only be upto the 'Maximum Recipients Size'. The total recipients must be based on individual users so if groups have been…

  9. smtp alias

    Microsoft tells us to use the new Office 365 Groups instead of distribution groups, but the new Office 365 groups doesn't have the functionality to add email aliases as distribution groups allows me to do. Sometimes I need to add aliases just to be sure that also misspelled or variants of an email address gets through. Add this simple function please!

  10. Add an Office 365 Group Calendar to your Outlook Calendar

    You should be able to add an Office 365 Group Calendar to your Outlook Calendar. Currently I cannot use the group calendar in Outlook, and many users prefer to be able to use both Outlook and Office 365.

  11. Outlook 2016 support for groups in a hybrid Office 365 setup

    Office 365 Groups in a hybrid setup are not visible in Outlook 2016. I think Groups are a great concept, but this is holding me back of promoting their use in our organisation.

  13. Enable Office Groups in Shortcuts in Outlook

    I always use the "Shortcuts"-view in Outlook.
    It's not possible to add Groups to the shortcut menu so I have to switch between views.
    Can't Groups be added as a shortcut?

  16. Remove multiple groups from single user

    When creating a new user or an existing user under Exchange Properties and member of, I would like to be able to add and remove groups for that single user. If it is not in that area just under edit user there should be an option somewhere, where I can add and remove groups under the selected user.

  20. Supprimer ou pouvoir modifier le quota sur le nombre de groupe de distribution

    Le nombre de groupe de dsitribution est limité « by design » (selon le support technique) et est assez bas (environ 50 groupes). Il serait donc très utile de pouvoir soit supprimer ce quota, soit de pouvoir le modifier, depuis l'interface d'administration d'Exchange Online d'Officce 365 ou depuis un Powershell.
