  1. Sync calendar and contacts with Mac

    I want to be able to sync my Outlook.com calendar and contacts to my Mac. Please make it possible. Currently I can only sync email and notes. Other services (like Gmail) can sync my calendar and contacts to Macs.

    Thanks for the consideration.

    • Print the people contact list

      It would be useful to be able to print the list of people contacts with their email addresses. This would efficiently help me to determine which contacts are outdated and need to be revised.

      Next idea-do not include in the search feature calendar items when one is searching for help on printing people contact lists. Including this has not been an efficient way to use my search time.

      • Using a 'Distribution List' for emailing groups of people

        Distribution Lists:

        It would be useful if there was a facility to save numerous recipients' email addresses under one list, so that when you need to email a group of people, you don't need to type in their addresses separately every time. Saving all the addresses under one title, for example 'family' would save a lot of time. You would then simply click on 'family' and all the saved email addresses would be entered into the recipient box, automatically.

        I email 4 different groups of people, regularly, each group with about 15-20 recipients in, and most of the time is…

          • Live mail contacts.

            Make sure that live mail and outlook share same facilities so Accu Check e-mail still works and users don't have to sort out software links for important document e-mails to nurses.....i.e Address book just like favourites

            • Very dissatisfied with new inbox layout.

              Awful new format, really inconvenient for scrolling through the inbox, the old system was much easier. If at all possible, please change it back.

                  • contacts update

                    Auto contact email address addition feature while sending mail is highly essential which I think is missing. Also facility to import contacts from other mail service providers would be of great help.

                    • Multiple Email addresses

                      Maybe I am stupid. When I try and start a new email and type in someone's name it only gives me one email address. What if I have both their personal and work email addresses and want to send some emails to personal and others to the work email. Again, either I don't know what I am doing or you guys don't!!!

                      • Chime alert for people in VIP list

                        Please add the ability to select certain people in my contact list with alerts. For example, I want to be able to select that when I receive emails from specific people, I get a chime alert. So my email only makes noise when I get an email from those specific people. It's currently set up that way in iOS, it's called VIP and when I add a person to my VIP list, if I get an email from them, my phone will chime. All other emails are silent, I just get a badge for all others.

                          Is there a way to create address labels using the contact list in Outlook.com? If not, I feel that would be a nice added feature.

                                  • Name override checkbox

                                    Add a "checkbox" to the GUI of the "People" screen to allow the name that I keep and prefer for a person to override the text string that comes from the inbound message. Example:

                                    My sister's name is PEGGY. We call her PEGGY. her email comes in with
                                    the name "MEG ANN" . If I set the Checkbox, display the name as what
                                    I want it to be (what I have entered for NAME 1 in People (or NICKNAME).

                                    Example #2: I get an email from THE DONALD, I want it to show as from
                                    BOZO.

                                    Just a little humor.…

For example: If I want to note that a person belongs to a certain GROUP, such as "Family", "Church Affiliation", "hobby", "hometown", "occupation", etc., then I could address an email to all the people in my "Family", or "Church", or "hobby", etc. This would be VERY helpful. Please consider adding this feature. Thank you.
