  4. Allow editing of local categories

    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".

  6. Clutter

    Clutter works great in the Windows version of Outlook (and in the iOS Outlook app), but does not divert as many messages to the Clutter folder in Mac Outlook 2016. I need to triage my emails on my phone before opening Outlook on my Mac because the iOS Outlook app sorts Clutter much more effectively.

  7. I NEED CRM FOR OUTLOOK in MY MAC

    why Microsoft , a huge company.
    CANT provide mac users CRM plug-in for outlook?

    from 2011 to 2016, youve got FIVE years to solve these problem.

    People who use mac are also Microsoft's customer, we paid the same price for office, but cant get the same function as PC version.

    Its not fair.

    You says we can using browser or mobile version.

    BUT the trues is the old version what we use didnt provide the fully function on web ui !

    AND nothing WE EMPLOYEE can do to change these situation...

  9. office365 password change

    Allow users to change their Office365 account password through the Outlook for Mac 2016 client. Users work entirely out of Outlook, so when their password expires, they have to go to OWA, login, change the password, then change it in the their account settings. In a business environment this is cumbersome for a lot of users. I am the IT admin and would love to see Outlook prompt that your Office365 password is expired, then give a prompt allowing the old password to be input, as well as the new one twice, and then the password is changed for their…

  10. Create/edit tasks from directly from the tasklist

    It'd be great to have ability to create/edit tasks directly from the tasklist (without opening the new task dialog).

  12. Finnish month names still incorrect

    Outlook calendar for Mac shows incorrect month names in Finnish. There's an additional "ta" in the end of every month, e.g. "tammikuutata, helmikuutata" etc.

    It should be 22. helmikuuta, but it is 22. helmikuutata. You got the point, so please FINALLY correct this.

  13. I wanted to archive a single IMAP folder not all the email accounts I manage through Outlook.

    This was something that I could do with my Outlook 2010 for Windows Outlook.

  14. Provide Ability to Delete "Old" Categories from Older V of Outlook (not just colors)

    Worked with microsoft techs at nausea to remove categories in contacts and calendars generated from maybe 2003 v. of Outlook imported to MAC. Was able to delete on PC but not MAC. THIS IS A PROBLEM!

  15. Get closer to the O365 web look and functionality

    After all these years where we had to live with Office 2011 I had such high hopes for a real Outlook mail client with modern features and a new interface. Well, we got a revamped interface yes, but still looks a lot like the old 2011 version.

    The worst thing missing and completely lacking compared to EVERY OTHER mail client today is an archive button. You even have that on outlook.office365.com.....

  16. Smaller updates

    Smaller updates. Updates are almost 1GB. There has to be a way to makes the downloads smaller. With all the other Office apps this is unbearable. Almost 5 GB to update the whole Office suite.

  18. Enable editing of attached Word documents without the need to save a copy

    Outlook for Mac 2011 allowed you to open an attached Word document and edit immediately before saving. 2016 insists that the document is read only and you must save a copy before editing.

    Why not simply give users the choice of saving a copy or start editing now?

  20. rule

    Rule to help clear monitoring related messages.

    The idea is this, Nagios sends us an email with the word 'PROBLEM' in the subject line when there is a 'PROBLEM' on a server. When that 'PROBLEM' goes away or is fixed, it then sends a new email with the same text in the subject line as before, but replaces 'PROBLEM' with 'RECOVERY'. Also the state of the check is shown such as OK, or CRITICAL, or WARNING.

    It would be nice if there was a way with the rules to look for messages in a folder that have it take a…
