  1. Fix bug that downloads duplicate emails for POP accounts

    I just "upgraded" from Mac Outlook 2011 to Outlook 16 v15.37 and now every incoming message appears twice. This is a deal-breaker, I'm going back to 2011 until this is fixed.

  3. Amount of new messages in collapsed folder

    When a folder is collapsed and you the subfolder has new messages (due to filters) you have no chance to see them besides expanding the folder. It would be cool to see a sum of new messages in the subfolder.

  5. Consistency in hiding passwords

    When you trim the length of the hidden password please always trim it and don't initially start showing dots, then go to one dot later.

  6. Real Activity Monitor

    I have a very big email setup -- a ton of messages and folders -- and I'm trying to optimize my configuration.

    There are times, as many have posted, that Outlook for Mac 2016 (15.17.1 in my case) is off and busy doing something, but the Sync Status window shows nothing. Apple's Activity Monitor shows 100-300% CPU use (for those that makes no sense to, you get 100% for each core in your processor).

    I'd like to see a real "Activity Monitor" ... similar to what Apple's Mail has ... that gives me an idea of what the **** Outlook…

  7. Mac-Client (latest version): Meeting Series (-> Available Rooms) BUG?

    When using the "Room Finder" for a meeting series in the Mac Outlook-Client I get to see available rooms - but for some reason after choosing an available meeting room and then sending out the meeting invitation we get a reply that there are several meeting dates where the room has been occupied by someone else and therefore the meeting room would not accept the meeting series and cancels all meeting slots (even the ones when the meeting room would be available).

    Therefore it looks as this function does not really work (in the Mac client - on the web…

  8. Emoticons vs Red Flag

    I was reading my email and thought.. do you believe is possible to add emoticons to classify the emails? And not just the Red Flag. For example a heart, a like, a face, etc.
    It’s just an idea.
    This is to follow-up and classify in a better way your emails.

  10. Enable a feature to allow opening of emails in a second window. This used to be an option in previous versions but now it's not available.

  12. "Move" to folder with "mark as read" option

    Move operation does not clear the "Unread" flag. There should be option to do additional actions like move with mark as read.

  13. When saving attachments, provide a "Save & Open" button in the file dialog.

    Or, alternatively, a "Save & Open" command in the "File" menu.

    A dozen times or more per day, I save an attachment to a folder on my computer so that I can view and edit it. This requires saving the file, switching to the Finder, navigating to the folder containing the saved attachment, and then opening it. The idea would be to replace this with a single button or command that saves a file and then opens it.

    This feature is particularly important for Outlook, versus other email clients, because Outlook does not typically permit editing of attachments without saving…

  14. Search only into the Focussed Inbox

    When searching allow to search only into the focussed inbox. When selecting the unreads 90% are not not on the focussed inbox and make you lose your time.

  16. Strong recommendation for next build:

    Have a master junk folder in the “all accounts” section. That way, users who run multiple email accounts, like me (I have 4) can clear out their junk email all at once, rather than having to do so separately in each individual account. Huge time savings. Previous builds had this option, not sure why you got rid if this.
