  1. People Pane

    I'm still missing the People Pane in Outlook for Mac. Very often I'm looking for specific Mails from a special sender. People Pane is a good tool to find Mails and attachments.

  3. Must see all attachments in Outlook for Mac

    In Outlook 365 for Mac, when a letter comes with a large number of attachments, the attachment field displays a maximum of 39 items in full-screen mode. The rest of the items are out of sight, there is no scroll bar (unlike the Windows version). Button "Preview all attachments" is not visible too. Dear Outlook team, please, fix it.

  4. "No conversation selected"

    My Office 365 Account - every time that I move from inbox to sent or any other folder, Iget a graphic with a pink, orange, and blue icon that says "No conversation selected. Select a conversation to read."

    This happens every single time - why can't Outlook remember the last email that I was on in that folder - the old outlook could. Very annoying to be switching between folders and have the screen go blank except for a message telling me to select an email to have on the screen when I was just in that folder reading an…

  5. Under "all accounts > inbox" colour code the email addresses

    When viewing "all accounts" it's not really useful if you have multiple email addresses because you can't differentiate which email belongs to each account, so I primarily select each email and manage accordingly. Would be great if you could colour code them!

  6. Blocking high-level domains generating high levels of spam

    I've been receiving tens of spam emails each day from the new .icu HLD, and each domain is unique, so I don't want to see any .icu email. Can Outlook provide the feature to filter by high-level domain or allow wildcards for user and domain associated with a HLD?

  8. Fix dark mode to have white backgrounds for email bodies.

    The dark mode feature turns the bodies of received emails the same dark color which causes issues with certain emails.

  9. Respond now takes 2 clicks! That's annoying, I want to click once to respond or respond all and I want to do it from the email window

    Respond now takes 2 clicks! That's annoying, I want to click once to respond or respond all and I want to do it from the email window, maybe next to the person's name?

  10. Keep highlighted items default to the top of the Trash folder list.

    In the Trash folders, the highlighted item never stays default to the top of the list. This was fixed in build 16.30, but with 16.31 it's back to the same old. Whenever new items are added to the trash folder, the highlighted item should remain default to the top of the list regardless of any action from the user.

  11. Create a rule to edit the delayed sending of emails

  12. Provide keyboard navigation for the inbox

    In gmail you can navigate the inbox with a single key, j=next k=previous s=star(flag) e=archive …

    Outlook should do the same!

  13. link meeting requests created from messages in the thread of conversations

    When you reply or forward an email message, a new entry is created in the conversation thread. This doesn't happen when you create a meeting directly from a message so the thread is broken.

  14. Bring back the ability to jump to the body of the email from the subject line by hitting enter.

    The ability to jump to the body of the email from the subject line by hitting enter has always been a part of the Outlook editions I've used. It is something I do automatically, and now it just continues entering text in the subject. It will jump to the body if you hit tab. Can't see a good reason for the change.

  15. SAVE EMAIL ADDRESSES AUTOMATICALLY

    WHEN AN EMAIL IS RECEIVED, IT SHOULD AUTOMATICALLY BE SAVED AS A CONTACT. IF IT IS SPAN THE SYSTEM SHOULD NOT SAVE IT.

  16. include % scaling on print dialog in outlook. It is the only sizing option saves time vs separate page format

    I don't often need to print/save as pdf from outlook but when I do, I often use the % scaling and it is often quite different between emails.

    Add scaling to main print dialog instead of separate step in page setup

  19. Modify how recipient e-mail addresses are displayed for contacts with multiple addresses

    Many people have multiple email addresses. In the "Contacts" module it is possible to designate an address as the "Default" address for a contact. However, when in the "E-mail" module you enter that contact's name in any of the addressee fields, the dropdown list of all that contact's addresses doesn't put the default address at the top of the list. I think it should. (BTW, if you create a new e-mail to that person while in the "Contacts" module, the default address is used automatically.)

  20. Printing imbedded email QR/Barcodes

    Movie Tickets, Store Coupons are not printing in the current Outlook, to either Brother laser, or HP inkjet, or even PDF files from the Print Menu. This QR/Barcodes are lost from Outlook to the Printer... Apple Mail, or Browser email prints OK, but not Outlook! Online Chat found no solution, suggested this forum... The only other workaround is a screenshot, then print that.. Needs looking into! Also keep in mind it is the same problem on my 2012 Mac Pro and my wife's 2017 27" iMac, so not just one installation! Reinstall would not help,, Ref: Chat Case 16312375 from…
