  5. Fix the Autoresponder Function under IMAP settings

    Autoresponder doesn't work under IMAP. You've to force the email out. I don't know if this would be a problem if there was an Autoresponder folder, like Inbox and Sent. With the world as it is, I would have though having a folder that contained all the sent autoresponder emails would be a given. This was you can see what autoresponders have been sent, and have proof that "at least" the message was sent.

    Whether as a sub folder of sent items, or a folder in its own right.

  6. Improve SIGNATURE features

    I have many different signatures (as I operate many accounts) so I would like a feature to that easily shows each signature when hoovering over it (in a bubble or similar) so I can easily identify which one I want to insert in the email.

  8. show new email when a search is active

    I use search to locate related emails for a specific task. While working on the task I leave the search active.

    It would be great if new emails appeared in Outlook while the search was active - effectively making every search "search for *** OR date/time received is after the date/time the search was activated". This would allow me to leave my search active while still being able to handle urgent email requests without disabling and reenabling the search.

  11. I would like to have an option to so show my contacts avatars.

    Like on my outlook mail app I have the option to show the initials or avatars of my contacts. I miss that on Mac version. I have a better overview of my mails with this add-on.

  12. Fix frequent calendar hangs

    EVERY operation in the calendar (receive invitation, accept/decline invitation, save appointment, open appointment, appointment reminders, etc.) triggers a 15-20 second hang for the whole Outlook application. This is unacceptable for a platform I need to use all day every day!

  13. Keep last email (email thread)

    sometimes we have a lot of emails as conversational emails (forward/reply) I wish if we have a way "keep the last email" -FOR REFERENCE instead of deleting each email in email thread manually.

  14. I suggest you ask: "Do you wish to delete entire contact "Group"?, when Delete is hit while a Contact is open.

    I recently tried to delete one member of a Contact Group. I highlighted the member and hit delete...lost the entire group. I should have been asked if I wanted to delete the entire group.

  15. Disable checking of an email account

    Provide the ability to disable the sending or checking for email of an account that one does not have access to any longer without deleting the account. This allows keeping of the emails for reference.

  16. New Outlook file icons

    Word, Excel PowerPoint have received new file icons. Outlook files still have the old yellow file icons. Why? Just to make that clear, I'm not talking about the program icon.

  17. Linked Sharepoint Docs

    In the column sorts (possibly under the attachment column) there should be an icon for linked documents. We alway look for certain emails with attachments, but you never seem to know if there is a linked document out there on Sharepoint.

  20. Option to restore open windows(such as messages and/or drafts when restarting Outlook on Mac(not sure if windows does this already)

    Option to restore open windows(such as messages and/or drafts when restarting Outlook on Mac(not sure if windows does this already, if it doesn't it would be a great feature for both versions.) sometimes you don't want to choose between eating battery life and forgetting to read/respond to certain emails.
