  1. I suggest you add an option for the "work offline" button, where it automatically turns off after x time (5, 10, 15, 30, minutes, etc.).

    I suggest you add an option for the "work offline" feature, where it automatically turns off after x time (5, 10, 15, 30, minutes, etc.). So users can eliminate incoming emails as a distraction while keeping their calendar open and focusing on other work.

  4. Be able to schedule a single email for later sending

    Can I schedule an email to send at a specific time in the future? I don't see anything in the menu items (apart from setting up a rule, which seems nuclear). I'm using MacOS, Outlook 16.16.21

  8. Emoticons vs Red Flag

    I was reading my email and thought.. do you believe is possible to add emoticons to classify the emails? And not just the Red Flag. For example a heart, a like, a face, etc.
    It’s just an idea.
    This is to follow-up and classify in a better way your emails.

  9. Unfollow message in Outlook for a Mac

    Add the ability to unfollow or not get notified on a certain message that is available in O365, but not the full client. I'm baffled that this isn't already a feature in 2020.

  10. I suggest you solve the problem I cite below

    When I have an e-mail message open and I save it to a folder, it doesn’t disappear unless I close it. I want it to disappear automatically when I save it to a folder.

  11. Mail counter

    Add a red (or blue) circle with a number indicating the number of emails on the little mail icon at the bottom of the window. This is very handy, especially if you sit mostly in calendar view and then you
    don't see any incoming mails unless you are there to hear the sound.

  12. In Outlook for Windows, if I have a message open in a window, then move it into a folder other than Inbox, the message window automatically

    In Outlook for Windows, if I have a message open in a window, then move it into a folder other than Inbox, the message window automatically closes. It's kind of like "putting the message away" after reading it and deciding to file it.

    I don't see an option to setup this behavior in Outlook for Mac. You move the message, but the window remains open and you have to take the extra step to manually close the window.

    Any ideas how to set this up or enable this behavior if it's an option?

  13. Once I open the advanced search ( ⌥ ⌘ F ) the search panels opens, but there is not way to close it using the same sequence.

    Once I open the advanced search ( ⌥ ⌘ F ) the search panels opens, but there is not way to close it using the same sequence.
    Can you add a (x) on the panel or enable the close using the same key sequence?

  14. Would love to have "Add to Auto-Correct" in Outlook for Mac, like in Word

    Please include "Add to Auto-Correct" when right clicking on a mis-typed word. This feature is included in Word, but not in Outlook for Mac.

  16. Please remove the orange question mark from email addresses in v16.36

    The new Outlook v16.36 for Mac now has an orange question mark next to every email address that's a different domain from mine. This basically means absolutely everyone I ever email has the orange question mark, and it looks like there's something wrong with the address. Contact Help told me it was added intentionally to the update.

  17. Color quoted text

    Please consider implementing color quoted text, similar to Apple Mail which supports different colors for three levels of quoting. :)

  18. Allow Customization of the Message Ribbon

    Allow customization of the ribbon for Mac users. Every day I need to scroll to right to access the button to add a link to an email.

  19. I suggest you alphabetize all the addresses in the "Blocked Sender" list

    My "Blocked Sender" email address list somehow ended up with two (2) alphabetized lists. To find and manually remove an email address from the blocked list I have to search two lists. I would love to see only one list.
