  3. Requesting Outlook for Mac have an image attachment file resize utility. To both resize the image(s) and show the outgoing email size.

    We have an office of over 100 employees often sending images between design teams. Our previous email client application had the ability to resize images to lower resolution at the time of sending an email. Without this feature in Outlook we have found more difficulty in our workflow.

  5. customize BCC

    Allow the ability to customize and set a BCC email address by default, instead of having to enter an email address in the BCC field every time.

    Currently, you can only set to BCC yourself as default.

  6. Notification Rules/Alerts for Sub Folders.

    It is important to set different notification rules for subfolders to manage the mails efficiently.

    We see the badges, the number of mail received in the subfolder, but doesn’t notify us that a new email arrived.

    There should be an option in the rules whether we want desktop alert or notification for emails that come into that particular subfolder.

  7. The slide bad overlaps with the follow-up flag

    The slide bad overlaps with the follow-up flag. When you try to click on the flag right after scrolling through messages using the track bar, most of the times you end up clicking the slide bar instead of the flag because of the overlap.

  8. provide a way to delay ALL outgoing emails sent on the weekend until Monday morning (or other pre-set times)

    Currently, there is the option to delay the sending of emails on an individual basis. I would like to see a feature where I can delay all outgoing messages to a pre-set time so that emails are not received by colleagues on the weekend.

    After searching for an older email and closing that message it can take awhile to scroll back to the top of the messages list. I would like to suggest the option to have a place to do a single click to be able to quickly get back to the top of the messages list

    FEEDBACK FEEDBACK

    If you were able to make outlook access a virtual proxy email server that would allow server side email filtering rules using the IMAP protocols OutLook would become my default email program.

    It should be possible to have an exchange server request all email from all accounts that a single person user has then run global and account specific rules on the exchange server and then update the individual email account servers (gmail, apple, yahoo…) whenever the user uses outlook to access email.

    By interlocking the proxy exchange server rule filtering to outlook you (Microsoft) maintain the user…

    Insert Link in Outlook - Office365 for Mac has a drop menu listing recent documents. This would be much more useful if the drop menu included collapsable “Recent Links”, Recent Headings (essentially an anchorpoint) and then “Recent Documents.”

  14. Allow adjusting the size of the desktop Outlook inbox window.

    My desktop Outlook inbox window cannot be shortened beyond a set point. I would like to make the window shorter so that I can have access to more of my screen area at the bottom of the window, to place a second window from another program in that space below the desktop version of the Outlook Inbox window. This seems to be a straight-forward issue. The user (me) simply needs a window size control that allows the window length (and width) to be shortened to a very small size, as is the case for most windows within the Mac OS.…

  15. Ability to Pin Emails to one another

    At times, there are emails that are on different chains/thread/subject lines that are dependent upon one another. Provide the ability to 'pin' them together so the threads follow one another in conversations mode.

  16. Any way to srink JPEGs?

    I cannot shrink my JPEGs to send in Outlook Emails. Has anyone found a workaround. ZIP Compression actually makes the file larger once it is sent.

  17. Enable an automation option to empy the rubbish folder

    Enable an automated rule that would empty the Rubbish (previously Trash) folder. Pre-365 this option existed by enabling the check to delete the Rubbish upon closing the local client but I am not particular on the specs. Another way of doing this is add a mail folder rule set to the current message rule set.
