  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  5. Please add "Recall this message" function for mac!

    Please add "Recall this message" function for mac!Every time when I would like to recall an email on my macbook, I need to open the Parallels Deask for windows and then open the outlook for windows to recall the email. It is so annoying. More importantly, in "recalling" situation, time is of the essence. In this sense, after I accomplish the two steps aforementioned, the reciever has already opened the mail and I would fail in the recall unfortunately.

  6. 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. Requesting Outlook for Mac have an image attachment file resize utility. To both resize the image(s) and show the outgoing email size.

    We have an office of over 100 employees often sending images between design teams. Our previous email client application had the ability to resize images to lower resolution at the time of sending an email. Without this feature in Outlook we have found more difficulty in our workflow.

  14. Add capability for notes directly on individual emails

    There are times when I get emails in, and I have some thoughts on responding, but I don't have time to respond immediately. I want to be able to jot down the thoughts "onto" the email (without making a draft, too clunky). This is also useful for allowing me to summarize long emails into a quick note pain (basically, Review Comments in Word but on emails) and then give me the ability to search them (also maybe automatically tag them as haveComments or something).

  19. 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.

  20. Mac/Windows

    IN our company we use both Mac and windows. If we want to share file paths (a link) via email - the file path should be translated between the different platforms.... bam! a million dollar idea :-)
