  3. Conversation view by default

    It would be nice if there was an option to enable conversation view by default on every folder. My recollection is that this is possible in Outlook for Windows.

  4. Editable Move List

    The menue list used for moving E-Mails is actually only able to add new folders to move e-Mails to. It really needs the option to remove destinations you don not need anymore. It is very difficult to choose the right path after a while.

  9. I suggest you show a confirmation dialog when a user hits the key combo for "mark all email as read" .

    The key combinations to "mark all as read" or to mark the currently selected email as read differ by only a single key. I accidentally used the combo for "mark all as read" today - and marked about 200 emails as read, of several 1000 in my inbox. This is obviously problematic as I have no desire to read them all again to find those that haven't been read yet.

  11. the red time marker should only show up on today

    the red time marker should only show up on today. It is very confusing to be overlaid on the whole week. I keep thinking I'm late for something / very hard for me to glance at the right day.

  12. Color quoted text

    Please consider implementing color quoted text, similar to Apple Mail which supports different colors for three levels of quoting. :)

  14. open smart folders in separate window

    I have Smart Folders saved and I want to open a new Main Window and click the Smart Folder and see the results (for example, things like Received Today, or things group by text in a subject). But right now, when I click on the saved Smart Folder in a new Main Window, the bar across the top of the Main Window says Searching All Mail. What I want is since the Smart Folder has a saved name, can the name of that Smart Folder be displayed in the top bar of the Main Window in which the saved Smart…

  15. Encoding at Template in Japanese Env.

    I use "ISO-2022-JP" as my main encoding in Outlook 2019, and I also set the "Preferred encoding method for new messages" to "ISO-2022-JP" in my Outlook preferences.
    Now, after I created a new message and saved it as a template, I checked the source of the saved template and the encoding was "ISO-2022-JP". But when I opened it in Outlook and sent it, it was encoded as "UTF-8" when I received it. This means that Outlook will automatically convert the encoding. So I'd like to see the behavior changed so that "when I open an email saved in a template,…

  17. I would like you to enlarge the opportunity to transfer emails within Outlook to folders from 10 to say 20.

    I would like you to enlarge the opportunity to transfer emails within Outlook to a list that i can make of folders from the current list of 10 folders to be able to make the list of 20 or so folders. There is lots of room for that opportunity to be available once one opens the envelope at the top of the page where it says "Move".

  18. View full email addresses in To line of email

    When composing a message when I add people to the To: or CC: lines they show up as "friendly" names. I can't find any way to view the explicit email address that this will go to. This causes multiple frustrations and misdirected emails, as some mailing lists show up as people's names and some people have multiple email addresses that I want to be able to choose between.

  19. Set Automatic Replies in Outlook for Mac app

    I cannot find the 'Set Automatic Replies' feature anywhere in the Outlook app for Mac OSx. As a result, I need to set these automatic responses on the Outlook web service or on my iPhone app. When I do set up automatic responses (with a set expiration date) on OWS web or my phone, they seem to turn off without warning anyway after a few hours. Not convenient!

  20. the "scroll" column that comes and goes when you're scrolling through emails covers up the "flag for follow up" icon

    the "scroll" column that comes and goes when you're scrolling through emails covers up the "flag for follow up" icon. Its a small but super annoying problem where, if I try to click on the flag to mark an email, sometimes I end up "click scrolling" away from the email. Annoying bug.
