Send message confirmation trending idea

All too often you may be searching for someone and unknowingly send a message to the wrong person with a similar name. Sometimes in the worst case, you may send a message about cats or something silly to a manager way higher up instead of that friend, with obvious repercussions.

I propose a confirmation box (something along the lines of "Do you really wish to send this message to 'full name'") to show up for the first... more »

User Interface Improvements

Just a couple of ideas to improve the user experience. Many of these features are already in Live Messenger.

1. Cut and paste embedded images. If I want to send a quick screenshot to somebody its a pain to have to save the screenshot to a file and then send it.
2. Add in nudge. Good way to get somebody's attention.

Consult then transfer to in PC client

Lync phone edition has an option to Consult then transfer to. The Attendant has a button for this as well, as well as the ability to hit CTRL+L to achieve the same thing.

I know callers can merge calls using "Current conversation", but a Consult then transfer to button would be so much easier.
