  1. Send later

    I would love the ability to do two things related to “Send Later”
    1. Gives us the ability to set “Send Later” the default send option
    2. Give us the ability to set the default time, like tomorrow at 7am.

  2. Set Reading Pane to light/dark mode as default when Switch Background is used

    When switching emails/views in Outlook, light mode set as background doesn't stay as a default option and reverts back to dark mode.

  4. The New Outlook

    The New Outlook seems not to support email.

    When I click on it I get: The following accounts and items aren't supported and won't be available in the new Outlook.

    It then lists all my email accounts, IMAP, POP, Gmail and Outlook plus On My Computer folders

  5. open mails from display dialogue on mac

    With a dialogue popping up based on filters, Mac user needs to close the dialogue and open the subfolder to read the mail.
    This is quite annoying in contrast to Windows implementation where the mails can be accesses directly from the notification dialogue which again lists all display dialogues in one pop-up window

  8. Support Dark Mode in Reading Pane

    Please make the preview pane appear dark in dark mode. The current implementation hurts the eyes and is woefully inconsistent with the rest of the application appearance.

  9. Give back the option to choose text encoding under Format tab. It is greyed out and it is set to automatic.

  10. Revert to Cmd-K for send receive from the current Ctrl-Cmd-K

    Send/Receive used to be Cmd-K. For some reason you have now changed this to Ctrl-Cmd-K, which is far less convenient. The amended command can now only be done by the left hand, whereas the previous command was ambidextrous on a standard Mac keyboard layout. I would like the Send/Receive to revert to Cmd-K.

  11. Please revert to the white reading Pane in Dark Mode

    Dark Background in reading the email was not good, before was much better. Dark Menus and Light Reading Background

  12. Notification Rules/Alerts for Sub Folders.

    It is important to set different notification rules for subfolders to manage the mails efficiently.

    We see the badges, the number of mail received in the subfolder, but doesn’t notify us that a new email arrived.

    There should be an option in the rules whether we want desktop alert or notification for emails that come into that particular subfolder.

  13. I suggest you add Archive feature in Mac version exactly as in Windows version.

    Archive feature in Windows cleanly allows storage of mail offline in a *.pst file. Archive functionality is missing in Mac Version. I carry 53 GB of mail with huge syncing and spinning issues.

  14. "Private" option for e-mails

    Please include the option "private" for e-mails. I wonder why this function is available for outlook 365 for windows, but not for outlook 365 for mac. The "private" button is essential for business communication within a company.

  15. Strongly suggest having the email search feature just above the email preview panel, as it does for Windows. Otherwise it is inconvenient.

    Please include the email search feature for all emails just above the preview pane rather than top right of the screen. It's in an inconvenient spot for Mac.

  16. Email View - Sender and Subject as separate columns and allow sort

    Email view - Currently Name and subject are displayed as a single column. Display sender Name and subject as different columns and allow us to sort on these columns as we have in windows outlook.

  17. Enable setting Categories to a bunch of emails at once

    Enable setting categories in bulk. Currently I can only do it one by one.

  18. I can flag, but I can't checkmark emails after; it's not an option w/ a imap email configuration - please make it available

    The an imap email configuration, please make available to iMac users the option to checkmark their flagged emails as completed. Please also make available to iMac users the option to categorize using colors their calendared items. It's greyed out an not an option when email is configured as iMap. I would love to Microsoft Exchange to allow these things, but I would have to change my business cards and inform ALL my contacts.

  19. Remember my latest "paste option".

    Remember my latest "paste option". When I copy & paste things/text into an email, it always uses the "Keep source formatting" and more often than not, I need to change to "Keep Text Only" in a menu.

    When pasting many things, I have to go and change this EVERY time. Suggestion: Please, if it can remember my last choice, life would be easier. (This is also true for Word, Powerpoint, etc).
