  1. Bullet Point Crash

    Every time I start a bullet point by using "-", Outlook crashes! I suggest you to check if I'm not the only one!

  2. Please stop forcing layout changes on users.

    As a long time user of Outlook, I appreciate the time, money and effort that has been put into application development. Overall, I think Outlook is a much better application for all of the updates and changes that have been made over the years. Lately though, I have become increasingly frustrated each time I apply an update only to find that my customized layout has been changed. I am all for change but I would much prefer to have new options presented to me in a way that I can choose to use them, choose how to use them or…

  3. "Easy" button for Windows-like short cuts

    I'm sure the default short-cuts in Mac Outlook are great for Mac users.

    For those of us that switch between Windows and Mac Outlook often it would be great to have an easy way to configure short-cuts (maybe the top 50 used short cuts?) in Mac Outlook at match Windows Outlook.
    Thanks!

  4. Outlook should go offline automatically if there is no Internet connection at all

    If there is no Internet connection at all (i.e. no WiFi connection), Outlook generates errors every time it tries to send email. Ultimately, I have to spend time clearing these error messages when I'm already well-aware that I have no WiFi.

  7. Display yammer groups like office 365 groups

    Since Yammer groups now can have Office 365 groups. Pls show those in the nav pane in Outlook.

    Also, when accessing those groups within the Outlook client, pls show the yammer thread native (outlook) within the Outlook client. Quick fix, open up the thread in yammer directly in the outlook client.

  10. Allow to add Office 365 Groups into Outlook Favorites

    Allow to add Office 365 Groups into Outlook Favorites. The new Favorites option in Outlook for Mac is awesome. I wish we could add Office 365 Groups to this section.

  11. Consider older people's eyes in design

    Software is designed by young people with good eyesight but everyone's eyes get worse as they grow older. I find the new Office 2016 in general to be more difficult to read. Employ older people to review designs before implementation so that the software can be used by everyone.

  12. Make it slightly faster so that is actually usable?

    Outlook for Mac is painfully slow to use, to the point where I need to consider alternatives.

  16. Recommend that Microsoft configures an Exchange account on a Mac or PC with a default question (e.g., do you want to delete all data?).

    Recommend that Microsoft configures an Exchange account on a Mac or PC or with a default question (e.g., do you want to delete the email, contacts, calendar, and/or other data files from your computer) when someone tries to delete the Exchange account. In my case, the Exchange account was a temporary account for a client's year-long project. After finishing it, I no longer needed the Exchange account. However, I've had a POP account for 18 years, which contains legacy data for this period. Certainly didn't want to lose it. Think MS would want to prevent other customers from experiencing a…

  17. Support for multiple RMS enabled accounts in Outlook

    Currently it is a big mess in all Office 2016 applications on the Mac when multiple O365 accounts are being used in parallel and more than one account has RMS enabled. Messages and documents cannot be properly decrypted because the correct account is not being used. Messages and documents can only be protected using one of the accounts while the actual account available to do so seems to be randomly chosen by the Office apps.
    This needs to be fixed ASAP to allow convenient use of RMS on the Mac on a larger scale.
