Not only read the entire email, but respond back with more than one word answer to a multi-part question. It only makes me have to re-ask the same question again when they answer the first question part and ignore the rest of the question(s).
Not allowing the frivolous clicking of the Reply All button. I don't mind wedding and baby announcements being sent to the entire company, but I can't stand all of the "Congratulations" replies to those emails.

Being introduced [^], but WAY to lenient and limits not configurable - at least yet. I guess might be a little bit useful in a huge enterprise at this point, but looking forward to something more generally useful.
How about keyboards that give a shock anytime reply-all is used - do you think it might help people learn to only use it when they REALLY need to? (Unfortunately, I'm guessing probably not).
An email app that explains to people what the difference between CC and BCC is ...
Just before I went down with Covid, I ordered 50m of Stihl strimmer wire as I didn't have much 1.75mm diameter wire left for my petrol strimmer and I like to buy quality.
And due to Covid lockdowns, it was delayed - the eBay shop sent me an email to explain that, asked for patience. No problem, except it was CCed to 40 odd other people, giving me all their emails ... and them mine
Mind you, it had one benefit once the wire arrived and somebody noticed it wasn't the genuine article ... and he had a list of fellow customers to check against ...

Thunderbird[^] can be used as a local client for Outlook and many freemails, including Gmail. I have used it to backup email services that otherwise cannot be backed up, and it's possible to move emails between accounts without having to forward them.
One drawback -- Thunderbird (when I used it) didn't understand Gmail labels. I discovered that when I synced, an email that had more than 1 label was downloaded into a folder that corresponded to each label, so it produce duplicates.
While it irritated me, this is what Marc wants (although with Outlook).
I haven't used Thunderbird in a couple of years, but found it's been significantly updated (the above link is for their What's New in v68 page). I'll be playing with it.
I would like to know what you find out.
Thinking on moving to the other side too
If something has a solution... Why do we have to worry about?. If it has no solution... For what reason do we have to worry about?
Help me to understand what I'm saying, and I'll explain it better to you
Rating helpful answers is nice, but saying thanks can be even nicer.
Outlook (at least the desktop client) allows you to add multiple user defined categories to any email, sounds like the same functionality as Gmail labels. You can definately filter by category as well.
