  1. 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?

  2. 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.

  3. 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!

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  8. 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

  11. 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.)

  12. 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…

  14. Forward email to add ";" between emails in To, CC, BCC fields, instead of ","

    Currently, for a forwarded email, the separator between email addresses in the To / CC / BCC area is using ",". But if we copy and paste the list of emails to the email To / CC / BCC field, it cannot work.

  15. Change attachment menu functionality

    Add a "Remove All" option to the "Download All" and "Preview All" menu items in the banner area of emails. I usually download important or sensitive attachments to a drive, then remove them from the original email. I assume removing the attachment saves email storage space.

  16. Stop inserting a slash '/' on for Reply Email messages; OneDrive cannot sync '/'

    Someone replies to your email. You want to save it. The default of a Save As EML titles the message with "Re/ ". The problem is that if you use OneDrive to sync these messages, you ALWAYS have to manually remove the '/' because OneDrive cannot sync them. So, MSFT, please stop inserting a character '/' that your OneDrive app cannot sync!

  17. Backup option for mail stored in 'On My Computer'

    Mail stored On My Computer cannot easily be backed up. You should be able to click on 'On My Computer' and then generate a backup of some format that could be imported later when needed.

    Ideally you would be able to select what to backup and what to to restore.

  18. "View with a light background" should be default in Dark Mode

    "View with a light background" should be the default in Dark Mode, otherwise designer emails look bad. The button should turn on the dark background if that's what the viewer desires.

  19. Restore missing functionality to Outlook 2019 for Mac that was present in Outlook 2011...

    I just installed Outlook 2019 for Mac, but several things that I could do in 2011 and previous versions no longer exist or work properly:

    I cannot randomize signatures in Outlook- I can pick one signature per account, but not randomize signatures like I could 2011, as well as back in Entourage- why was this very useful feature removed?

    I used to be able to click on a group I am using in the “To” field, and open it up to see individual people I am sending to, but that no longer works.

    I can no longer disable individual accounts…
