Why do you insist on hobbling the functionality of Outlook for Mac relative to Windows? It is more likely to drive users away than bring them back to PC. Functions such as comprehensive rules and read receipts are not exotic. Nor is a full host of formatting capabilities within the body of an email. Mac users chose this platform for a reason, and removing features only serves to validate this choice.
I want to change the font size on the navigation panel. The net says this on Outlook for Mac 2010 version. Now, not on ver 2016. Microsoft webpage presently gives instructions for this functionality on ver 16.70 which is a beta version not released to the public. I just purchased ver 15.40 this week. So, Microsoft publishes instructions for a function not available to recent purchasers. What? Microsoft help rep says they don't know when beta tests will end? How does this serve Microsoft's customers when they sit on a fix??? If this is so, it is really dumb and sad.

Agreed! My example is the Move function. The Move functionality in Outlook for Mac is horrible becasue of three big reasons:
1. Having to click Move and then type in the name of the folder is bass akward. Can’t a collapsed folder tree show up?
2. The list of recent folders is limited. This severely reduces functionality.
3. Drag and drop should be configurable between copy & move. D&Ding with copy, then having to delete the original is frustrating.

I whole heartedly endorse this sentiment. The functionality has been so greatly dumbed down it makes Apple Mail look attractive. I chose to use Office for Mac on the assumption that it was - in large - the same as in the Windows environment. Instead, it is a very poor shadow
