  1. Add "Recall this message" function and support message recalls from Windows clients

    Add "Recall this message" function so that you can recall messages sent in error. Also support message recalls that are sent from Outlook for Windows users - at the moment message recalls just come through as an email but don't automatically remove unread emails like Outlook for Windows does.

  4. Customize the ribbon

    The ribbon can be customised in Word, but not in Outlook. For instance, the placement of addin could be chosen (e.g. webex, which is working fine, by the way), or the very bad placement of the "send and receive" is dramatic

  6. Don't auto-delete meeting requests!

    Don't auto delete meeting requests! Sometimes they contain useful information in the body of the message that is hard to see once the meeting has been put on the calendar. I can customize this setting in Outlook for Windows. Why leave it out for Outlook for Mac?

  7. Support email alias

    Please add the ability to add an email alias (or aliases) into the account settings especially Gmail. I have been very impressed with this implementation in you Outlook for iOS App.

    I have a domain with Gmail and forward to my main Gmail account, but can't seem to get this to work with Outlook for Mac 2016.

    Thanks!

  8. Smart Folders in Ribbon

    I suggest you make it possible to move a Smart Folder (or Search folder) to the ribbon or at least to the top of the folders list so that I won´t have to scroll to the bottom of the folders list

  9. Enable Outlook to attach files from Sharepoint Online and OneDrive.

    The 2016 versions of Word/Excel/PowerPoint natively allow you to save files directly to Sharepoint Online and OneDrive, yet Outlook offers no option to attach one of those files into an outgoing email. If Microsoft truly believes in "cloud-first" one would think they'd integrate Outlook with their own cloud services.

  10. Expand conversation view with messages from "Send Items"

    At the moment the send messages are not displayed in a conversation view. Please add the ability to view this messages like it is in the windows version.

  11. Support Dark Mode in Reading Pane

    Please make the preview pane appear dark in dark mode. The current implementation hurts the eyes and is woefully inconsistent with the rest of the application appearance.

  13. Highlight related emails

    Please bring back functionality that highlights related emails when you have selected any message. This is a serious loss to the product.

  16. Import/Export of RULES (.rwz) File

    I shifted from WinOffice 2016 to MacOffice 2016, I'm unable to import/export ".rwz" files (Backup of Rules). Rules help in organising mails into there respective designated folders.

  17. open msg files in outlook

    We store .msg files in SharePoint document libraries and OneDrive, and to my surprise they would not open in Outlook 2016 for Mac.

    If there is not a trick to make this work, it should definately be a feature!

  18. Set Reading Pane to light/dark mode as default when Switch Background is used

    When switching emails/views in Outlook, light mode set as background doesn't stay as a default option and reverts back to dark mode.

  19. sent emails in conversations

    Right now, the only way to see sent e-mails in a conversation is to click to a separate display. It would be really useful to have the option (which I think is in the Windows version) to have them threaded together in order.

  20. "Mail to keep offline"

    In Office 365 (and previous version) on my PC i'm able to dictate how far back outlooks keeps my mail offline for. This is missing on Mac version...I'd like for you guys to port that feature over that exists on PC.

    For people like me who got 10 years worth of mail to download it's a real hassle...as I don't need 10 years worth of mail downloaded in my outlook client.
