  1. use gravatar for contacts that have no profile image but do have a gravatar

    When a contact does not have a profile image but the user does have a gravatar image it would be nice if outlook used the gravatar image instead of the default coloured cirlce with initials.

  3. I suggest you create a button to turn off the "What's new for Outlook" popup when I start Outlook.

    This popup slows down startup and any info here should be available in Help resources.

  4. Allow files on shared servers to be linked to in emails.

    In the earlier Outlook, you could click a file, press 'Command' + 'C' and then go into a new email, press 'Command' + 'V' and it would paste a link. Now you have to right click the file, select 'Get Info' and then highlight and copy the 'Server' text, then in the email you have to click 'Hyperlink' and create a link. It takes so much more time and effort!

  9. web site does not support safari

    The web server here (outlook.uservoice.com) does not seem to properly support Safari. When trying to log in to leave comments, clicking in the password entry field always seems to cause it to go to "Create a password." In Chrome, it properly allows the selection and entry of the password text.

  10. Figure out how to insure the windows come back up on the right screens when there are multiple screens.

    When Outlook for Mac restarts or starts back up (such as after a shutdown/reboot) my calendar window comes back up on the right screen in its original location and size but the email window comes up on a different screen.

  11. Allow Reminders to be tied to a single desktop, rather than showing up on every desktop.

    Currently, the Reminders window is displayed on every desktop. There should be an option to pin the Reminders window to a single desktop as I can with the main Outlook window. This was the old behavior of Outlook 2011.

  13. Switchable Account Profiles

    With the Windows version of Outlook (or least the older versions) one could create multiple account profiles. This feature, currently not present in the Mac version of Outlook, can be more useful than ever considering more and more folks are using Outlook for personal email AND work email at the same time. It would be nice to be able to create a profile for Word and another for Personal. What way your personal and work life are separate.

  14. Add a function that allows you to color one open outlook window, inbox, differently than another open outlook window, out box.

    Add a function that allows you to color one open outlook window, for example you are viewing your inbox folder in one window, differently than another open outlook window, for example your sent folder. when answering hundreds of emails I like to have one main window open to inbox and one main window open to sent folder, which allows me to search for previously sent answers without losing my place in my inbox. Being able to color one from the other would help in easily knowing one from the other.

  15. Place of icons/shortcuts to Calendar etc

    Change the spot for "icons" or shortcuts for mail, calendar, tasks etc. Since they are (still) on the very low left side, the are hidden by the Mac-dock.

  17. Create a virtual Desktop

    Mail is too often lost in clutter. Beyond flagging, I would love to create a virtual desktop that I can drag emails that I don't want to lose track of, are linked to a specific project, etc.
