inline message reply
Support for inline comments when replying to emails (i.e. prefix comment with initials, use different font etc.)
This is a must have feature for so many people. Please follow the way other mail programs are handling this (e.g. Mail.app)

I am trying to find a solution to the (very basic) need of embedding inline comments when replying to e-mails (html) in outlook 2016 for mac. It is not supported !
Please add this BASIC feature!!
Absolutely - so frustrating to have this ability removed.
Will likely change clients to get this functionality back.

Please can we fix this? Not having this ability actually precludes me from using Outlook as my email editor. Simply having the ability to back to using the previous composer backend would fix the problem.

YES YES YES!!!! It used to work this way, and now doesn't anymore.
I want to be able to take a multi-paragraph email, and be able to reply to it, paragraph by paragraph, by inserting my text between the existing paragraphs that I'm replying to.
I miss this greatly.
In the latest version released this week, I can't even have my reply be beneath the text I'm replying to. Every other email application that I've ever used has allowed me to do this. Why not Outlook for Mac????
Totally agree that this behavior was present before June/July 2016 (now on v15.24, not sure when it was introduced/broken). Please just bring back how it worked before as it was pretty reasonable.
Simpler: inline indenting does not show the blue line where commented.
It would be great to simply get
as prefix when relplying to an email.
(as any real mail program does ;-) )

If this is what I think it is, I would describe it as having (or rather, having restored) the ability to intersperse email replies between bits of quoted text.
This used to be the default behavior, but as of now (v. 15.24/160709) if I "reply", I can only type before or after the quoted text -- any attempt to insert a reply in the middle of the quoted text (which used to be possible using return key to get a new line) results in it appearing quoted.
I would prefer to have control over how the quoted text is displayed (indented, colored, different font, ">" or other character prepended, etc.) but have my normal composing options used for my reply, whether or not it is "within" a quoted block.
