  2. FIX: Outlook shows 'J' instead of smilie problem on MAC

    Currently when people email from outlook for windows and type :) outlook converts that to a plain text portion with a proper Unicode smiley, and an HTML portion with a Wingdings J-character smiley.

    In outlook for mac, in the LIST of email view preview window, a smiley shows up but in the main preview window a J-character appears.

    It's poor behaviour by outlook for windows to convert in the first place but given it does, can we have outlook for mac updated to understand the smilie situation and either render it as : ) or :-) or a full graphic…

  4. support for paragraph formatting (spacing, indentation).

    when writing in HTML format, right-clicking text should bring up the formatting submenu that has paragraph formatting like Word:
    - change spacing inside a paragraph
    - change spacing between paragraphs

  6. Assign one signature per email account

    Assign one default signature per account by default under settings.
    At the moment it is impossible to manage multiple accounts without forgetting to add the signature manually or adding a wrong signature.

  14. Office Add-ins Available when Composing Emails

    Current you can use the Office Add-ins when reading email, but not when composing. With the recent release of Add-Ins like Evernote and Boomerang, their usefulness is great diminished (or non existent in the case of boomerang) when composing an email in Outlook for Mac.

  16. Exchange password prompt

    Outlook/Exchange issues persist. All through the preview releases and now with the “official” release, I get a certificate error and password prompt every time I launch Outlook. Numerous others have the same issue as noted at the “answers.microsoft.com” site.

    Can you please address the Outlook, Mac Keychain, password issue?

  18. Search Folders

    Please bring "search folders" into the Mac client as they are in outlook for Windows. They are extremely helpful for sorting out all emails form the boss, or from some other specific groups very quickly, and they always stay up to date.

  19. Please design the back up service in office for MAC 2016

    Dear Sir,

    In Outlook for MAC 2016, we cannot find any backup service in your system.

    In previous windows version, we can save the emails in on pst file,
    which allows us to save one pst file for the email during one year or specified period.
    It not only allows to backup the emails, but also allows us to keep the file size managed.(if the files size goes larger than 8GB, we can open another pst file to save the new email)

    This function allow our business users who has large sizes of emails to do backup and file size…

  20. Improve 'Conversations' classification

    Currently if subject of two emails threads don't match exactly, they are classified as two separate conversations. Sometimes when new mailing list email is added to the same subject line, it adds a [mailinglistname] to the front of the subject line, which causes the conversation to split into two. It would be really really useful to be able to configure this - saying only match the subject line after all the mailing list names in square brackets (i.e. if the subject is "[list1][list2]subject_name", match only the text "subject_name" and ignore the text in square brackets [...])
