  2. Translation feature

    When I receive an email in another language I copy it and go to google translate to read it. If I need to send one I type it in google translate and copy it in Outlook. Please add translation feature out of the box as gmail does.

  4. Propose new meeting time

    Propose new meeting time

    Currently, you are not able to respond to a meeting invite and propose a new time. Very inefficient to have to respond to the meeting as an email and then have the owner resend the invite when you can simply propose a new time.

    Hello everyone, we have now release the support for gestures to the Insider Slow ring, however, they only support archive & delete. Please see here for details – https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/Outlook-Blog/Insider-Slow-Several-UI-UX-improvements-in-Outlook-for-Mac/ba-p/143547

    This will be released to production soon. Please continue to vote on the need for customization, to help us better prioritize our work :)

  9. Add highlight option in MAC 2016 when searching emails

    As opposed to windows feature, which allows the ability to automatically highlight keywords matching the search criteria, can we also add this function in mac outlook office 2016? The highlight feature comes in hand for weary eye like myself.

    Thanks

  10. I suggest you fix "filter for unread messages.

    I suggest you fix "filter for unread messages. If I read messages, un-filter and then filter again, the read messages still appear mixed in with the unread ones

  11. Avoid crashing EVERY SINGLE NIGHT!

    I usually don't log out when I leave for the day; I just lock my screen. EVERY MORNING, OUTLOOK HAS CRASHED!

    What happened to the great email client from the 90s? This is a pile of poo.

  12. OS X Native Fullscreen Support

    The Outlook Mac app doesn't support 'Fullscreen' mode on Mac. It'd be great if I can make the Outlook window go fullscreen.

  14. Allow us to turn off calendar notifications only

    I have a different calendar app that I use primarily. It also has Mac desktop notifications. I would like to keep my Outlook email notifications popping up, but I would prefer to shut off the Outlook calendar notifications. It currently seems like it's all or nothing if I want to shut the desktop notifications.

  16. Please bring focused inbox to the Mac

    This feature alone has made me a convert to the iOS app. It's so great. Please bring it to the Mac. It would also be nice if the preferences "learned" by the iOS app synced to the desktop through your Office account, and vice versa.

  17. Ability to replace Delete Button with Archive

    The use of the Archive pattern (as opposed to deleting mail) has become increasingly popular. I'd love to see the ability to replace the existing "Delete" button with an "Archive" button that simply moves the message to a user-defined folder.

  19. Support SVG graphics in signatures and e-mail bodies

    Please support the use of SVG graphics (for logos) in e-mail signatures and message bodies. This kinda works now, in that the recipient will get the e-mail with the embedded SVG, but while composing in Outlook you get a broken image symbol. Ideally we could use inline SVG so that a logo can be embedded in a signature without the message requiring an attachment.

  20. Allow setting to view sender's email address

    I want to be able to view the sender's email address not just the name. You can toggle this feature in Apple Mail.
