  1. eml

    Currently it is possible to create a new message from an eml file with the createitem method. But in the api outlook / graph there is no equivalent. Is the feature in your roadmap?

    Thanks

      • ews managed api

        Allow oAuth to login with credentials but as a registered app service like we can do now with basic authentication. We have a server process that scans the inbox and save emails based on a contact folder for hundreds of users. We cannot log in as them every time we restart the services.

            • Outlook API shouldn't force me to re-authenticate or refresh the token every one hour. One should be able to configure once with offline

              Outlook API shouldn't force me to re-authenticate or refresh the token every one hour. One should be able to configure once with offline token. I need to be able to configure a job that calls the service every set number of minutes.

                • Make the GetUserAvailability EWS endpoint accessible via the Microsoft Graph API

                  Right now the only way (that I know of) of getting calendar events from calendars that are not owned by the current user, is through EWS's GetUserAvailability endpoint. The functionality to query calendar's that you can read, but do not own, should be part of the newer REST apis. With EWS you are forced to use password based authentication, which is less scoped and therefore less secure than OAuth based methods.

                  The existing findMeetingTimes endpoint doesn't give as much information as getting access to the events directly, so that does not solve my issue.

                  • O365 REST API - Add more control over the folder structure for non-mail folders.

                    When creating a mail folder, you are able to specify the parent of the folder, but if you want to create a folder for other content types, such as appointments, tasks, etc., you cannot specify the parent of the folder if the parent is a normal folder. If you create a calendar called My Calendar, it will get created somewhere, but you have no control over where it gets created.

                    Similarly, there is no way to list folders of specific content types within a parent folder. For example, there is no way to list the calendar folders within a parent…

                    • Outlook's file attaching timing should be adjusted

                      i realize that i email to my client with my not corrected file which was supposed to be attached after correcting because i just correct after i attached and forgot to re-attach it.

                      no one do like this?
                      It happens to anyone sometimes.

                      So, i think that attaching logic should be adjusted for more smart Outlook system.

                      even if we attach the files in advance before it is not done correcting them, it should deliever the corrected files finally.

                      Don't you agree?

                      I bet you agree!

                      • Enable DNSSEC for outlook.com / office.com

                        Microsoft Technet [1] describes exactly why this is a much needed feature: to prevent DNS spoofing at rogue networks (public Wifi, etc..) and protect Office365 users from malicious actions like credential theft.

                        DNSSEC is already widely deployed by many other major service providers.

                        • Outlook mail search results sorted based on relevance.

                          Currently, searching in OWA and outlook client returns 3 results ("top results") based on relevance.

                          For search results of clients using the Outlook/Graph APIs, it would make a lot of sense for the search results to match those of the official mail clients experience.

                          • Add the ability to whitelist trusted scripts on Mac

                            With Outlook 2016 for Mac, there are exposed APIs that are accessible via AppleScript, ObjC, or JavaScript. These APIs are great for automation on a Mac! Unfortunately, from an enterprise/administrative standpoint, these are not feasible solutions for deployment.

                            With the introduction of WordMail for the compose editor in Outlook 2016 for Mac (15.22), a script warning was introduced, stating: "A script is attempting to send a message. Some scripts can contain viruses or otherwise be harmful to your computer, so it's important to verify that the script was created by a trustworthy source. Do you want to send the message?"

                                    There is currently a gap in web hook support for the outlook apis. It would be great if we could get events triggered when a task is added or updated in outlook.

                                    • Websites on Outlook.com Contacts REST API are inconsistent/bugged

                                      The REST API for Outlook.com contacts features a business website field, yet the web GUI for contacts only has a personal website field.

                                      I cannot find information on the latter in the API specification, and therefore cannot set it through the API, yet the company website can be set, but does not show up or is available on the web GUI.

                                      Please fix up both endpoints (API and web GUI) to support both fields, or decide on one of the two and stick with it.

                                      • Contacts Rest API v2.0 bug: Cannot post contact without GivenName

                                        If you try to save/post contact that does not have a Given Name, the request fails. When using web GUI, Given Name can be omitted.

                                        • Copy/Move mail from one mailbox to another

                                          I have been trying now for a FREAKING WEEK! to achieve this, using the EWS SOAP based system is absolutely disgusting.

                                          In the managed API, or even better through the graph api, can we have a function to move/copy (is EWS, "Export" and "Upload") without having to use this horrid EWS SOAP based system?

                                          Its so painful, I just cant get my head around. Stuff just doesnt work and the doco is horrible. I have been trying to do OAuth with EWS, and I dont know what the hell the issue is, but nothing works. Is there any doco to…
