Outlook Express (OE) / Outlook parity bugs [meta]
Outlook Express/Outlook Parity The goal of this bug is to track what Outlook or OE can do that we cannot; this is more of an implementation back-end tracker than front end. Address book bugs: bug 13595 - Birthday fields bug 20304 - Export as vcard bug 40301 - Nested list bug 75711 - Tag/group cards bug 86405 - Editable LDAP address books bug 118665 - Multiple email addresses/etc. per card bug 239784 - ActiveSync support bug 273165 - Rich text/attachment in cards Message storage bugs: bug 57898 - Multiple sort levels bug 59277 - Secured storage bug 93094 - Archive mail Filter bugs: bug 11034 - Bounce, autoreply bug 11039 - Filter on outgoing messages bug 59365 - Filters should have triggers bug 77017 - Import filters from OE/Outlook News bugs: bug 20417 - Support X-Face header bug 37775 - Support description of newsgroups bug 60981 - Support combine & decode bug 148744 - Show replies to my postings Other bugs: bug 21210 - Reply with template bug 65111 - Delete whole thread when collapsed bug 73567 - Ability to select from multiple signatures bug 269541 - Queue email messages
bug 60981 - Support combine & decode Actually Outlook Express supports this for both newsgroups and email. For newsgroups it's accessible through the shortcut (right click) menu. For regular email it is only accessible through the top menu. OE also provides the opposite function of breaking a message into parts. This is a server configuration setting: Tools->Accounts->email account->Properties->Advanced. This setting really should be more accessible so it can be turned off and on on the fly.
another similar meta? (no express though ..) bug 370090
I would rather distance myself from bug 370090, as that seems (as mkmelin points out) to be more of a personal "these features annoy me" bug than something indicating true lack of features. Yes, I did see that bug when I searched before creating this one, but I decided against using that one for the aforementioned reason.
I think you should add this bug to the list: Bug 318600 - Means to apply background color (highlight) to a selection in an HTML composition This is an Outlook Feature, as it is said here: http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/outlook/HA101671421033.aspx
Outlook express nor Outlook can edit LDAP address book.
Not interested by comment 5? I got another one to add: Bug 274628 - Preference to close message window on delete instead of loading next message. I can confirm it works in outlook 2003.
This one should be added too: Bug 119459 - Option to add a photo/image/picture to each entry of the addressbook
