  1. Add an email as calendar event

    In the "old" outlook for Mac there was the possibility to add an email as an event. Now it's gone.

  2. Keep last email (email thread)

    sometimes we have a lot of emails as conversational emails (forward/reply) I wish if we have a way "keep the last email" -FOR REFERENCE instead of deleting each email in email thread manually.

  3. provide a way to delay ALL outgoing emails sent on the weekend until Monday morning (or other pre-set times)

    Currently, there is the option to delay the sending of emails on an individual basis. I would like to see a feature where I can delay all outgoing messages to a pre-set time so that emails are not received by colleagues on the weekend.

  4. Remove shift-return submitting

    As shift-return in other applications doesn't submit the message, instead adding a newline, I often press shift-return by accident and by this submitting unfinished e-mails. Sometimes extremely frustrating and causing confusion. Please remove this feature, or make introduce a feature-toggle in settings.

  5. separate scheduled emails from drafts... make a new "Scheduled Folder"

    Currently, emails that are scheduled to send in the future are stored in the drafts folder. I would suggest a new folder called "scheduled." They're really not drafts anymore if you have already clicked send and set it to automatically send sometime in the future.

    This would help separate emails that a user still needs to work on from those that are already proofed and ready to send.

  6. Out of office message, CC designated backup

    Add the ability to CC a certain person in my email response. For example, if i want to leave a POC while I'm out, when the out of office message is sent to the person who sent me an email, add the ability to CC a specific person I've designated as my "backup"

  9. DON'T DOWNLOAD OLD EMAILS

    new year new business why outlook downloads 2017/2018/2019 emails, c'mon guys stop outlook from filling the SSD for offline use when we are always connected! Let the user decide what we want the client to download. I have 200 GB of emails and been looking for a solution but it seems to be impossible to solve.

  10. Retaining the same email when I changing view options, such as From -> Conversation.. and etc

    I’m looking for a way to sort out my emails. My case that I want to see email is like this.. 1) I found an email with “Date Received” view. 2) Now, I like to see all related emails with that email I found in “Date Received” view. 3) then, I have tried to change “Conversation” view while I’m highlighting the email I found in “date received’ view. ==> but, this was not working - outlook hightlighed other email thread once I changed to “Conversation” view. Do you know how to retain related email and email thread enven I changed…

    There is no need to show &zwnj in the preview list. Please make it hidden.

  16. I suggest you add spell check before sending as an option.

    I suggest you add spell check before sending as an option. Yes there is spell check as you go but spell before sending is better and what people are used to using outlook. Not sure why the MAC version has to miss such clear essentials.

  17. I suggest you add a feature called: DELETE ME FROOM THIS THREAD.

    Delete me from this thread is an optional button or icon on every email. Clicking the icon creates a 30 day rule that moves all subsequent emails in the thread to the deleted folder.

    This would save me so much time!

    Customize Export function to create file within size limit (aligned with cloud based rules eg below 2Go) and to be structured as user mindset (copy/select the user subfolder, by period of time, topic, rules...)
