  1. 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.

  2. 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!

  6. Bug Fix: Search: Search fails to show results in case the search formats are, from: "John, Doe (Company)" OR John, Doe (Company)

    Since OL 16.23.1 (190326) : BUG: Search fails to show results in case the search formats are,

    from: "John, Doe (Company)"

    OR

    John, Doe (Company)

    The later one is something that OL shows from the contact list automatically.

    Looks like Search does not like the combination of comma and brackets together

  10. BIG ISSUE FOUND The Reading panel keeps showing the email already dragged into a folder but the selected email is the one which was below

    If you drag an email from inbox into a certain folder the panel view keeps showing you the email you dragged already but the one which appears selected is the email which was below.
    This brings you into a confusion because you think you are reading the email selected and in addition if you click in the selected email the reading panel keeps showing you the email you dragged into the other folder.
    The only way to solve this issue at the moment is selecting any other email of the inbox and then selecting again the email which was below…

    When you use red X mark to close the application, Outlook cannot remember the last selected folder as a user can open multiple main windows at the same time with different folders selected. It's by design.
    Outlook will show you the first email account which you have added when you simply close the application by clicking on the red 'X' mark. (Not the default account but the first email account you have added to Outlook).
    When you close Outlook using Outlook -> Quit Outlook or, right click on dock Outlook icon -> Quit, Outlook should show you the last selected…

    Using "shared mailbox" accounts does not work in Outlook for Mac. Emails are received to these accounts on program startup, but not thereafter. I've reported this to support multiple times, but they seem to have a lot of trouble troubleshooting this/identifying the issue. I've even tried this on multiple Office 365 accounts and have been able to reproduce in the last several versions of Outlook for Mac (it's been around for at least 1 year).

    It's very easy to reproduce. Just create a shared mailbox in Office 365 admin (not a group, but a "shared mailbox"). And send yourself an…

    The IMAP Root Folder setting is not working in Outlook for Mac for years now. The Windows version abides by this setting and will show folders correctly. On IMAP servers who require the root folder to be set (for example "INBOX"), Outlook has this setting but ignores it, showing all the IMAP server folders as childs under Inbox. This is infuriating, please fix :D

  20. Fix layout issue

    Go back to the old layout constraints, where I could have 3 panels (in the mail view) on a half screen of a 13" rMBP (at the highest resolution - so there's plenty of pixels to work with). A few months back the behavior changed and now it force-collapses the folder pane, not allowing me to size the panes myself It was an inelegant step backward in functionality.
