  1. Add Secure Messaging to Outlook API

    The current graph API within Outlook doesn't support enabling encryption or secure messaging support. Secure Messaging is becoming the norm for PII and PHI communication and Office 365 supports it out of the box with an E3 license. However, programmatic access isn't available as far as I can tell. Enabling it would accelerate a number of secure messaging initiatives.

    This feature is now available in public beta. You can access hidden mail folders via the /mailFolders API by adding a new query parameter called includeHiddenFolders. ​You can read more about the feature @ below links:

    About Hidden Folders: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/graph/api/resources/mailfolder?view=graph-rest-beta#hidden-mail-folders

    Get a list of hidden mailFolders: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/graph/api/user-list-mailfolders?view=graph-rest-beta&tabs=http#example-2-include-hidden-folders-in-the-signed-in-users-mailbox

    Create a hidden mailFolder: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/graph/api/user-post-mailfolders?view=graph-rest-beta&tabs=http#request

  3. Convert User Mailbox to Shared Mailbox

    Currently there is no other way to convert a user mailbox to a shared mailbox other than powershell or exchange admin center.

    To automate this process we need to use powershell with basic auth. This method should have been retired today from microsoft but was delayed to mid 2021.

    To be able to have a proper automation we need the integration of shared mailboxes in graph API. It is a MUST to be able to create shared mailboxes or convert user mailboxes to shared mailboxes with this API.

  4. Provide message weblink in edit mode

    When POSTing a message using the /me/message endpoint, a webLink is provided in the response. The link point to the draft message in read mode, and the user have to click the edit button to complete and send the message.
    It would be usefull to provide a link that lands directly in edit mode.

  5. Graph api for moving a message from one mailbox to another mailbox

    Currently we are using only EWS for moving an email from one mailbox to another mailbox for functionalities like quarantining an email to the admin's mail box. Can we have this functionality in the Graph api as well? Right now the 'move' graph api only supports moving the item within the user's mailbox. Appreciate your time!

  7. Expose 'private', 'confidential' and other sensitivity properties for the Mail endpoint.

    This is quite important for us to determine whether it's appropriate to read an email or not with our tool (currently everything is returned with no indication).

    I'm sure there are many other use cases that require sensitive emails to be identifiable.

  10. Get messages by ids

    In EWS it is possible to get more than 1 mail item by item ids. Can this be supported in Graph API? Graph API seems to allow fetching one message at a time via GET /me/messages/{id}.

  11. Forward email as attachment using REST API

    Replicate functionality that was available in MAPI/VSTO addins and via EWS to forward email as an attachment similar to the old demo Outlook-Add-in-ForwardEmail, https://github.com/OfficeDev/Outlook-Add-in-ForwardEmail

  12. Parse the right HTML markup

    When generating an email with Bullet points in Mac Outlook and send the email via Graph the bullet points will become a number if the user opens it on a Windows Outlook Machine. All Outlook products should generate the same markup in Word or HTML. Here is the HTML Graph is returning to the email client which swaps out the bullet points to a number.

    <html>
    <head>
    <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=us-ascii">
    <meta content="text/html; charset=utf-8">
    <meta name="ProgId" content="Word.Document">

  13. SharedMailbox members (mailbox permissions) via Graph API

    We are trying to get the members (mailbox permissions) of a SharedMailbox via Graph API. We do not see any Graph endpoint at the moment that can help us get this information. We are in the process of building a custom application where we need to be able to perform read and write operations of SharedMailbox membership/permissions. This functionality is certainly available via the exchange online powershell and I can imagine this being a critical functionality which is not yet available in Graph API. .

  14. Please provide a restore endpoint for deleted mail messages

    As of now, I think there is no endpoint to restore mail message. Even though if we are using post request with same metadata of older message, instead of restoring, it creates new message as createDateTime is automatically being updated to present time

  15. Ability to search messages by internetMessageId

    At the moment, the search functionality of the graph seems pretty cool.

    However, we'd like to use an identifier that is shared across different servers and platforms to identify emails.

    The only property that we can think of at the moment is the internetMessageId.

    Unfortunately, it seems like the API doesn't offer that at the moment. We've seen that PowerShell can be used to search by the Message-Id but access to the a PowerShell session can be quite tricky to put together.

  16. Provide Basic Attachment Info in Get Message

    You can see hasAttachments: true|false in Get Message, but having further attachment info (size, name, filetype, hash, etc) would also be useful directly from within the Get Message API.

  17. It will be helpful if we add attribute or property for email body without signature inside com.microsoft.graph.models.extensions.Message

    Hi There,

    Few people might need some kind of requirements like : to read only email content without signature from the email body.

    Now a days in a real time applications we are using Graph API to read emails and send emails etc.
    It will be helpful if we add attribute or property (like bodyWithoutSignature) for email body without signature inside com.microsoft.graph.models.extensions.Message model.

    IMessageDeltaCollectionPage delta = graphClient.users("<UUID>").mailFolders("Inbox").messages()

    .delta()
    
    .buildRequest()
    .get();

    In the above case if we get Message model, and add property like bodyWithoutSignature...
    we are easily get message.getBodyWithoutSignature();

  19. Message Copy: Allow to copy message to another mailbox.

    The Current Message Copy functionality is only limited to create a copy of mail under the same mailbox where mail resides.

    This should be expanded to Copy a message from the current mailbox to another user's mailbox

  20. Manage Exchange Admin Roles with Graph or the EWS Api

    I would like to be able to create and manage Admin Roles in Exchange through Graph or the EWS API. This is currently only achievable through Powershell or actually logging on to the Exchange Admin Centre, neither of which are really suitable for my current project.
