  3. Allow to open MSG attachments

    Whenever Windows users attach another email from Outlook for Windows I have to go to OWA to be able to open this attachment. This is not right. Please add support for MSG files.

  7. Preferred the previous style of Outlook, new format looks plain and child like, not easy on the eyes. Classic look preferred.

  8. I suggest you change the colour of the Outlook for Mac dock icon. It's just too similar to word and is causes me confusion on a faily basis.

    It's just too similar to Word's icon and it trips me up every time I switch between apps. Even just a bit more white on either of them would do the trick...

  9. Sync Errors window

    I wish the errors, the “warning icon”, the whole sync errors window, and the fact that it needs to be “cleared” to dismiss the warning icon – ALL could be removed from the app or at least be disabled by default.

    1) It creates a sense that something is wrong – usually for no reason
    2) creates unnecessary questions
    3) creates unnecessary effort to clear the messages
    4) overall, is a distraction.

  10. Better Office for Mac Autocomplete Support

    Throughout the Office suite, when typing text, Outlook, Word, etc. doesn't seem to honor autocomplete or offer word suggestions when you "arrow" your cursor next to the misspelled word. This is a feature offered system-wide on macOS. Please properly integrate into the Office for Mac suite (excel obviously works differently when typing in cells, so Excel may have an exception in that case).

  13. Accent colour in System Preferences does not change traffic light colour (graphite, dark mode)

    I feel like the title bar of the macOS app should respect the accent I have chosen in preferences, Graphite should have grey traffic lights. Most macOS apps (first party e.g any apple app, and third party e.g Firefox) change the colour of the traffic lights to grey when you change the accent colour to graphite.

  14. Add a tab to the Mac menu bar

    Add a tab to the Mac menu bar to show unread messages on which you can click to bring up Outlook window. This functionality exits in the Dock, but it would be great in the menu bar.

  16. To have an option to select which buttons to show at the top

    My outlook for Mac as a LOT of stuff at the top that I don't use. Recently, one that I do use was removed, the mark as read/unread button which is still available on PC.
    Instead of forcing people to use what you think is best, why can't we select which buttons we want ot display just like Finder on mac, or Explorer on Windows allows one to do?

  17. Automatic Updater

    Listen to the user and when they say no to automatic updates, you NEVER ask again. No means no. It's a simple word. Is it too difficult to understand?

  19. Have your programs open in their designated desktops on macOS when told to

    Basically every *other* application opens when assigned to a different desktop (e.g. Desktop 3, Desktop 5, etc), but all of yours (Outlook, Remote Desktop) do not. I have to continue to move your applications where they're supposed to go when opened, and it's like corralling cats.

    Fix this.
