  1. put a scripts menu in outlook 2016 for mac

    When MS fails to put basic functions like "Convert email to event" then it needs to allow applescripts in its menu, so we can at least add a script to create this

    Although this request is for a valid feature (scripts menu), the example given has already been addressed by built-in features. You can either reply to a message with a meeting, or drag the message to the calendar to create a meeting with the message as an attachment.
    What other features do you feel need to be addressed by adding a scripting option?

  2. Do you want to save the changes that you made to your smart folder?

    I use "search" a lot. I have highly customized search folders using RAW search queries to help. The power of search means I need no folders. Yay. But I'm so tired of seeing this message:
    "Do you want to save the changes that you made to your smart folder?"
    This message appears every time I search from a smart folder. It's so, so, so, so very annoying. If someone at Microsoft could add a couple lines of code so that I can choose "No, and don't ask me again" that would be like the best thing ever.
    Thank you!

  3. Have an option for subject based conversations

    Add an option to organize conversations by subject like it was in previous versions. Many of the automated systems which I receive emails from do not contain a conversation ID and my inbox is now incredibly difficult to read with responses to existing threads. I simply want an option to organize conversations using the "rudimentary way" of organizing by subject.

    Hi! Tasks and Notes do already sync for exchange accounts, do you mean Outlook.com? If so, details on how to sync calendar, contacts, notes and tasks for Outlook.com are here –
    This feature has been enabled since our October 2015 update (15.15). For details, see: https://support.office.com/en-us/article/Outlook-2016-for-Mac-supports-the-new-Outlook-com-experience-d21c77ad-5cbe-41bb-bd56-f7b62768335d?omkt=en-us&ui=en-US&rs=en-US&ad=US

  5. Search

    When use Search; Show preview on the Right-side, and ability to move instance to folder with right mouseclick context menu

  6. Enable Server side Distribution List

    Outlook for Windows and Outlook Web Access support locally stored distribution lists. This is not supported by Outlook for Mac even with the new Version. Please add this functionality to be compatible!

  7. Searching Email

    After closing the search function in the inbox you should be back at the beginning. This is not the case at the moment.
