  • This is not possible with Outlook Web Add-ins ( 

    We track Outlook add-in feature requests on our user-voice page. Please add your request there. Feature requests on user-voice are considered when we go through our planning process.

    This is possible with a COM / VSTO Add-in that would only run on Desktop Win 32 Outlook. 

    (There may be other solutions too, that I am not as familiar with)
