  1. Simplify info about "updates to be downloaded"

    Problem when starting Outlook shown in an info screen at the centre of my laptop screen, but no suggested solution. After several restarts and new tests to start Outlook I happened to see -"there are updates to be made" etc at the lower right side corner. But why on earth don't you write that tiny info in the "error message box" on the centre of the screen, so everyone can see that info without using a magnifier!

    User get the error- "Either there is no email client or the current mail client cannot fulfill the messaging request. Please run Microsoft Outlook and set it as the default mail client." while previewing the .msg files in the Preview Pane enabled under File Explorer.
    We have Win 10 Enterprise 64-bit OS on which we are using the Office(Outlook) 2016 64-bit and though Outlook is already a default mail client still user is getting this error. While troubleshooting this issue I found that other file types are being previewed with no issues other than .msg files also when I tried…

  11. Customise the welcome email

    When someone signs up and confirms to join the mailing list, it would be nice to customise the email that is sent to them when they confirm their subscription to the mailing list.

  12. Easier de-duping

    I had a failed attempt at importing my data into Connections, so I deleted all the contacts and started again. I now have a (more or less) clean list assigned to various mailing lists but this has brought about its own issues.

    My suggestions are:

    1) I have a complete set of duplicates (and more - 832 people in Contacts but 1,705 people on the 'Everyone' list) with no reassurance that, if I use this list, it won't send each mail twice!
    2) Provide an easier way of searching for duplicates in the contacts list. At present all you seem…

  13. delete expired campaigns

    There should be a way to delete campaigns to manage storage. I have generated a number of campaigns simply in testing. I would like to delete them and, once I use Connections in production, be able to delete old campaigns so that I don't need to scroll through hundreds of ages to find one I want to replicate.

  14. Contacts filter for those not on a mailing list

    Within contacts you can filter in various manners but cannot filter those that are not on a mailing list so that you can allocate accordingly, or mailing list specific. Those not on a mailing list may have signed up via the 'sign up page' in Connections but you will have no idea who has signed up. So suggested filter options in Contacts:

    Contacts not on a mailing list.
    New contacts, added within last 30 days.
    Mailing list specific.

    Plus notification by email of new sign ups (an option to turn this off should be included as some might receive excessive…

  17. Can we import contacts from Dynamics 366 into Microsoft Connections?

    It doesn’t appear that there is any ability to import contacts from Dynamics 365 into Miscrosft Connections. In Dynamics 365 we now have the ability to create unique contact lists. And because Dynamics 365 and Microsoft Connections are together in the same platform you would think and expect that this capability would naturally be made available.

  18. scheduling campaigns

    Good news — we’re now rolling out a “scheduled send” feature to Connections users now! You may already see it, and if not, you should see it within the next few weeks.

    When the scheduled send feature is available for your account, it will appear on the final preview screen before sending.

    You’ll see a note just above the To and Subject lines indicating “This campaign will be sent immediately” with a link to Edit when the campaign should be sent.

    We’d love to hear feedback on how you like this new functionality.

  19. Auto-unsubscribing bug in Connections

    I run a mailing list in Connections and noticed a much larger than average percentage of users unsubscribed. Some of these in the months that followed then telephoned and complained they hadn't got our mailout. In discussion and sessions with support, it appears as though if ever an email is not successfully sent to (for example, inbox full etc), the contact is auto-unsubscribed, or so it seems.

    I know from past mailout uses (constant contact for example), that some contacts return email not successfully sent, but in fact they have got them when you speak to them about it. Constant…

    We’re investigating this issue and we’ll reach out to you via email so we can work with you to understand what’s gone wrong.

    The intended behavior is to unsubscribe users when the email provider responds with a permanent errors — for example, when the email provider tells us the email address does not exist. We’re taking this step to protect your spam reputation with that email provider, since some providers penalize senders who send to addresses that don’t exist.

    However, this should not be unsubscribing users who experience temporary issues (like their mailbox is full), and we will investigate why your subscribers with valid email addresses were unsubscribed. Thank you for all the information you provided to help us take a look.

  20. Allow custom domains for outbound email address

    Please allow me to send from my custom domain like mycompany.com rather than mycompany.mssend.com
