  2. Dark Mode

    I love me some dark/brown mode in iOS apps and Window phone mobile is a lot easier on the eyes at night. Please adding this feature on Outlook. Dear developers, Please considering it....

  3. Bug: Format Paragraph… not available in table

    The command is not in the menubar under "Format", only in the right click menu. Right clicking in a table cell the command is missing from the context menu. The shown shortcut for "Paragraph…" ⌥⌘M does not work, even when disabling the conflicting same shortcut for "Minimize Window". So it is not possible to access paragraph format options inside a table cell. Please consider to fix.

  4. Fix Preferences > Rules screen to better describe rule errors and not be more strict that Web/Windows Outlook

    Please fix the Rules validations on Mac Outlook! I'm running 16.34 (20020900), and it seems like EVERY ONE OF MY RULES fails validation and Mac Outlook will not tell me what the problem is. It just marks the whole rule as having an error and only gives me the option of REMOVING IT ENTIRELY or inspecting it WITHOUT TELLING ME WHAT THE VALIDATION ISSUE IS!

    My rules caused no issue on Windows Outlook and I can still edit and maintain them using the Web Outlook 365. They also appear to function on the server.

  5. Bug: Outlook Message Disappears

    Just wanted to give some feedback on the latest version of Outlook (16.36 - 20031800). Occasionally when composing emails, the text and header disappear. They reappear if I resize the message window. It appears to happen mostly when I move the cursor outside the message window to check something else.

  7. I have encountered a bug with Smart folders (Outlook for Mac v16)

    This is the only forum I could readily use to submit the bug since Microsoft doesn't seem to have an easy way to identify a bug. The bug has been present in numerous older versions; I just finally found the problem to a symptom I've had for years.

    Smart Folders enables the use of search criteria to establish a view of emails as an alternate to the folders in which they reside. I have been using a simple smart folder with criteria "all mail received in the last ## days." I've been using 3 days. It turns out that, although…

  10. 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.

  11. 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!

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

  17. Fix IMAP Root Folder

    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

    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…
