  1. Calendar "today" view show multiple days

    In the windows version of outlook, I can select the "today" view, and the select the next few days in the mini-calendar to get a multi-day grid what begins with "today". I find this view is really valuable from Wednesday on in a work week in that is uses valuable screen space to focus on the future instead of wasting half of it with the past. Thanks for your consideration.

  2. make it easier to send photos as attachments to email and not embed them

    It is time consuming to attach photos to an email as an attachment. I typically don't wan to embed the photo and i don't want to upload and share from the cloud in a business email.

  3. Outbox Support for Offline Mail

    Currently when formulating emails and clicking "Send" while not connected to Exchange, emails are redirected to the "Drafts" folder without any kind of notification. Emails should be saved in the outbox and automatically sent upon connection to Exchange.

  4. Automatically close an open message window after moving item

    In Outlook for Windows, if I have a message open in a window, then move it into a folder other than Inbox, the message window automatically closes. It's kind of like "putting the message away" after reading it and deciding to file it.

    I don't see an option to setup this behavior in Outlook Mac. You move the message, but the window remains open and you have to take the extra step to manually close the window.

  7. Make available in MAC Outlook the options to decide whether to go to the previous or next message after deleting. Windows version has.

    In the windows version there is the option of deciding where to go after deleting a message, to go to the next or prior message. This has been missing from the MAC version for the last five years and my Google search shows a number of frustrations over this. Please add this in.

    Add the "Folder" section that exists on the Windows version so we can see Public Folders in a more intuitive and consistent way with the Windows version

  11. Allow user-defined week start...

    Outlook for 365 Home (on Mac) has a calendar starting on Sunday. I need it to start on Monday. Can a user-selected option be integrated into the software, please?

  12. Support 'promise'd drag & drop content, e.g. from Photos

    You currently cannot drop a photo from Apple's OS X Photos app to Outlook (nor to other Office apps). The reason is that Photos uses the new kPasteboardTypeFileURLPromise / kPasteboardTypeFilePromiseContent format, because it doesn't necessarily store the photo locally, but rather in iCloud.

    The default local categories in Outlook for Mac 2016 are unable to be seen, let alone edited, in the Edit Categories window. Please give us the ability to edit/delete local categories for use with Outlook items stored locally "on my computer".
