  2. Auto Trim e-mail addresses when pasted into a contact

    When an e-mail is pasted into the contact field it looks like this: > Outlook should auto trim off each side of the e-mail address so it works in this field.

  3. Please add contact list back to outlook. New Group is not what I need, I just want to send them an email, and not chat with them.

    Bring back the old contact List. Hate the new Group, I just want to send emails to my list and not chat with them. Very upset I lost my old contact lists.

  4. Can you please add a feature to STOP automatically adding contacts?

    It is really frustrating that my people list continues to be populated by random contact Outlook pulls out of my email. Please create an option to stop this (as is possible with Outlook for Windows).

  5. Make it Easier to Enter E-Mail Addresses

    Many enterprise emails use the format

    firstname.lasname@company.com
    firstnameinitial.lastname@company.com

    Once the name info is entered (and it is usually the first thing one does) Outlook should suggest the email address based on the above formats so that the user can simply pick one or enter a bespoke email address.

  7. import wab file

    Create the possibility to import contact information from an old .wab file (from Outlook Express) into Outlook for Mac.

    Alternatively, provide a simple utility to read .wab files and output the information into a .csv file, which seems to already be supported for transferring contact information.

  10. doubleclick on a VIP to open new message

    I categorize people in purple category as friends. I can just see them when I click on the list. why not to save a step just double click on the name and it automatically opens up a new email with the person's address already entered in the "to" line.

  14. Make Contacts' pane consistent with Windows

    Currently, in the Mac version the People pane (contacts) is extremely confusing, in comparison with the Windows' version. Why the labels are repeated in each category?
    If i was visually consistent in the two O.S. (with Windows 10 as reference, of course), it would be much better.

  15. Please alloc conatcts be synced to People in Mac Outlook

    Hi,

    I have become part of Insider Fast. This should have allowed me to sync my contacts from my email id {backed by Google} and it should have appeared in my Outlook for Apple Mac. However this is not happening.

    How do it do it. I have followed all steps as per the below link

    https://blogs.office.com/en-us/2017/03/01/outlook-2016-for-mac-adds-support-for-google-calendar-and-contacts/

    Kindly help . Its frustrating to not see the contacts in the address book and be able to use them

    Please xtend this to Volume licensing users just as you may have extended it to Office 365 users. Why differentiate if they all of…

  17. add the notes field from iPhone to the contacts

    notes in iPhone contain important information, at least for me. It would help if that tab/field was included in the columns available for display in outlook

  19. I suggest you hire/enlist individuals who are on the "Support" with knowledge, experience, and education to be able address problems/issues.

    Hire individuals working with SUPPORT to have knowledge of the software, have experience working with the software, and most importantly, have education/training on the software.

  20. provide the ability to colorize contacts by email account

    if you have multiple email addresses, it would be helpful to be able to colorize the contacts so you know which one is from which email account.
