Close mail with ESC button
With Outlook for Windows I'm used to use the ESC button to close the message window after reading the message. It would be great if that feature would be available for MAC as well.

In New Outlook, unlike every other office app and really, every other app I use, using the close window widget (red x) is a destructive behavior, in that it destroys the settings the user has created for the Outlook Window. When you use the close widget (a VERY COMMON USER BEHAVIOR) and then have a new window created via clicking on the dock icon, the new window does NOT match the previous settings the user may have created.
Instead, those user-created settings are destroyed and the new window has a default configuration. Settings that are destroyed include:
1) Window Size
2) Window placement
3) Folder column width
4) Message list width
5) Reading pane width
this is unacceptable behavior in that again, a behavior the human engages in with no expectation of a settings change is:
1) destructive to user settings
2) Undocumented anywhere (I only found out about it from Outlook support after filing a ticket with them and having it closed because "that's a feature, not a bug"
3) Outlook support tries to pitch it as "standard behavior across most macOS apps". It is not, and that is dangerously close to deliberately disseminating false information to people who might not know better.
4) There's no warning that this destruction of user settings will happen.
5) There's no way to cancel the close so that this destruction is avoidable.
this behavior needs to be either changed to non-destructive, which is the actual standard way macOS apps behave with the close window, or a warning dialog needs to be implemented the first time the close widget is used to warn the user of this behavior.
For composing an email, when ‘ESC’ character is pressed - can this trigger the popup box to cancel or save as draft option
