    • Please bring back the categories feature in Outlook for Mac.

      It difficult to filter out the information while on the Calendar, Notes, Task or Contacts.

      At least give the option to filter by Category on list view and collapse group like in Windows Outlook.

      • Support Dark Mode in Reading Pane

        Please make the preview pane appear dark in dark mode. The current implementation hurts the eyes and is woefully inconsistent with the rest of the application appearance.

        • Dark Mode

          I love me some dark/brown mode in iOS apps and Window phone mobile is a lot easier on the eyes at night. Please adding this feature on Outlook. Dear developers, Please considering it....

          • Add / Display Holidays

            Really, you don't have holidays yet? Every calendar I use has the option to display holidays. Outlook for Mac is the only one that doesn't have this and this is what I use for business. Microsoft really confounds me and many other business people I know. You don't add some obvious features people use and can't be that hard to add.

                • Requesting Outlook for Mac have an image attachment file resize utility. To both resize the image(s) and show the outgoing email size.

                  We have an office of over 100 employees often sending images between design teams. Our previous email client application had the ability to resize images to lower resolution at the time of sending an email. Without this feature in Outlook we have found more difficulty in our workflow.

                    • I suggest you add CalDav support to Outlook for Mac.

                      Corporate mail server is CalDave - whether we like it or not. Want to integrate in Outlook rather than using iCal!

                                  • I suggest you add Archive feature in Mac version exactly as in Windows version.

                                    Archive feature in Windows cleanly allows storage of mail offline in a *.pst file. Archive functionality is missing in Mac Version. I carry 53 GB of mail with huge syncing and spinning issues.

                                    • open msg files in outlook

                                      We store .msg files in SharePoint document libraries and OneDrive, and to my surprise they would not open in Outlook 2016 for Mac.

                                      If there is not a trick to make this work, it should definately be a feature!

                                        Put the categories back in the sidebar! Why on earth would you take that feature away? Now I can't view contacts or calendar by category, rendering the categories essentially useless.
