  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.

  3. 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

  4. 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.

  6. 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.

  7. 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.

  11. 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.

  12. View full email addresses in To line of email

    When composing a message when I add people to the To: or CC: lines they show up as "friendly" names. I can't find any way to view the explicit email address that this will go to. This causes multiple frustrations and misdirected emails, as some mailing lists show up as people's names and some people have multiple email addresses that I want to be able to choose between.

  13. disable google account microsoft cloud sync

    Add an option to add a Google account without syncing your email and other data to the Microsoft Cloud. There doesn't seem to be an option for this, so you cannot use Outlook for email without giving your content to Microsoft (no matter what the Privacy Policy says), not even with IMAP.

  14. Place the "-" and "+" buttons of Advanced Search on the left side of dropdown menu.

    Advanced Search of email shows the "-" and "+" buttons on the right side of the search box, but they should be placed on the left side of the dropdown menu for better usability. I would suggest that the ideal order is "+", "-", dropdown menu and search box (= text box).

  15. Enable OAuth Login Feature to Add Mail Accounts

    Mail Account provider Sky Yahoo, have introduced new requirements for adding their Mail Accounts to other programs, e.g. OUTLOOK (desktop). Yahoo has removed the feature for generating a third-party App Password, so it is not now possible to add an existing or new account to OUTLOOK. The implication is that Microsoft Outlook needs to be updated to enable add/use some Mail Accounts. Outlook IOS seems unaffected, so I would like to suggest that Microsoft Outlook introduces an OAuth style feature.

    Meanwhile, I cannot use my primary sky Yahoo email on my Office 365 Outlook for Mac and have had to…
