  1. Crash

    There is a critical bug in outlook, If we invoke two threads to empty the trash (or any other folder) then it would cause a null pointer hence crashes the outlook.

    Please add check for such things

    Thanks

    On Mac it should be possible to share a document for sending in a new email, like we do in the windows version
    Basically the possibility to put the outlook as the predefined email client

  3. Work offline/online toggle for Windows

    Please provide the Work offline/online toggle option for Windows

    If the Outlook on Windows goes to offline mode we'll have to create a new profile to bring it back to online mode.

    But, on MACs this is easy as there is a toggle option.

  4. No encuentro traductor en Outlook para MAC

    No encuentro traductor en Outlook para MAC, cuándo en el Outlook de Microsoft si se tiene, creo que es necesario incluirlo de igual manera.

  7. When the client is not connected to my account show a more visible indication.

    I happened to notice the disconnected message by chance on the lower right of the Mac UI. It would be good for UI to change colors or flash or give some more visible indication I am disconnected. Turn the title bar to a yellow or red color with stripes or give an overlay that is dismissible. The possibilities are endless. I could have gone an entire day or longer not realizing my mail is disconnected with the obvious negative implications.

  8. Be consistent on end-of-line keyboard shortcut

    The previous version of outlook reached end-of-line with ^E (control-E) as a keyboard shortcut. Outlook for Mac 2016 is more consistent with Word: it uses the "end" key (between numeric and alpha keyboards). However, when working in a file dialog text box, it's back to ^E! This is highly inconsistent. Choose one or the other. Thank you.

  9. MAC Outlook Feature to Update Email Distro Lists (functionality on Outlook for PC currently)

    I wish there was a functionality where you can edit email distro lists (not to be confused with group or contact lists you created yourself). There is currently a function to do this in Outlook for PC but not for MAC.

  12. move down the search outlook

    Please move down the search box so it would be more accessible when you have to search. The box is now a little bit far away from the rest of functionalities.

  13. Uncheck by default the "No new messages" sound.

    It was making me crazy what was the little sound in my MacBook Pro. It turns out that it was that feature. I would suggest to put that sound off by default.

  14. Follow up Actions

    When we mark an e-mail for follow up by clicking the flag icon, it is good that if I can add some actions to be followed on that e-mail by me or someone else.

  15. Cancel Email account creation when purchasing your product, people do not need a new email account and they might not use it as an email

    Please Cancel Email Creation MANDATORY step before buying any of your products.
    this email address will end up not being used, then forgotten, then taken out from your system, then for some reason, the computer will crash or restart or anything, then i CAN REQUIRE THIS LOST EMAIL ADDRESS!!!!
    THEN YOU LOST YOUR MONEY
    i really don't get it, and feel it was being done to encourage people to use hotmail or any other MS account, but i don't really think its the case, in my case all it did is to block my access to my own office365 on…

  18. maintain search terms after switching back and forth between email and calendar

    when searching emails and one switches to calendar to check a date, when switching back to email it defaults back to the non-searched emails. You then have to re-search. This is very frustrating.

  19. Fix integration with Skype for Business

    The integration of SfB contacts in email recipients, sender is broken. You now can click on a person in the mail header and you get the choice to phone or send a message etc to this person. Now when you click on one of these functions, nothing happens. The symbols also look outdated and it seems like it is from the Lync for Mac era.
    Anyway: Clicking on one of the actions (e.g. call, send a message) nothing happens in the SfB client.
