            • 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…

              • Provide Touch Bar customisation.

                Outlook build 170304 adds touch bar support for new MacBook Pros - but the location of SEND right next to ESC is dangerous. Please allow us to customise the touch bar (as you can for Apple Mail and other Apple apps) so that it can be removed or moved to a safer place. I'm fed up sending half-finished mails when my finger accidentally brushes the touch bar.

                  • Fix the signatures

                    I suggest you fix the signature feature.

                    When I select my default signature, instead of my default reply signature, some of the email I've spent time creating usually gets erased. I've resorted to copying the entire email i've drafted before utilizing a change in the signature, so I don't loose the text.

                                  I upgraded to the newest version of mac outlook 2016 (15.21) and it removed one of my most used features, 'edit message'. I used many times a day to put in notes and adjust the subject line.

                                  Please put this feature back!!! please :)

                                    Update: Edit message is back! It is now available in the latest version of Mac Outlook (15.23). Please see here for details – https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/3165798

                                    Thanks for all the feedback! We had removed the ‘edit message’ feature due to what we perceived as low usage, but your feedback indicates it’s worth keeping. Therefore, we are planning to reinstate this feature soon in Outlook 2016 for Mac. Thanks for your support.

                                        • Option to disable “quote only selected text on reply” feature

                                          If some mail text is selected, only that text is set in quote part on reply. This behavior is not very convenient for me as a longtime user of Outlook for Windows desktop.
                                          I want an option to disable it and let Outlook behave like Windows client.

                                            Hi all, as of release 16.21 it is possible to disable “quote only selected text on reply” in Mac Outlook. Go to Outlook/Preferences/Composing and uncheck the
                                            “Only reply to selected text” box.

                                            Thanks for your support!
