  1. Fix the Autoresponder Function under IMAP settings

    Autoresponder doesn't work under IMAP. You've to force the email out. I don't know if this would be a problem if there was an Autoresponder folder, like Inbox and Sent. With the world as it is, I would have though having a folder that contained all the sent autoresponder emails would be a given. This was you can see what autoresponders have been sent, and have proof that "at least" the message was sent.

    Whether as a sub folder of sent items, or a folder in its own right.

  2. Bug Fix: Search: Search fails to show results in case the search formats are, from: "John, Doe (Company)" OR John, Doe (Company)

    Since OL 16.23.1 (190326) : BUG: Search fails to show results in case the search formats are,

    from: "John, Doe (Company)"

    OR

    John, Doe (Company)

    The later one is something that OL shows from the contact list automatically.

    Looks like Search does not like the combination of comma and brackets together

  4. BIG ISSUE FOUND The Reading panel keeps showing the email already dragged into a folder but the selected email is the one which was below

    If you drag an email from inbox into a certain folder the panel view keeps showing you the email you dragged already but the one which appears selected is the email which was below.
    This brings you into a confusion because you think you are reading the email selected and in addition if you click in the selected email the reading panel keeps showing you the email you dragged into the other folder.
    The only way to solve this issue at the moment is selecting any other email of the inbox and then selecting again the email which was below…

  5. Fix the signatures

    I suggest you fix the signature feature.

    When I select my default signature, instead of my default reply signature, some of the email I've spent time creating usually gets erased. I've resorted to copying the entire email i've drafted before utilizing a change in the signature, so I don't loose the text.

  11. Return 'edit message' in mac outlook 2016

    I upgraded to the newest version of mac outlook 2016 (15.21) and it removed one of my most used features, 'edit message'. I used many times a day to put in notes and adjust the subject line.

    Please put this feature back!!! please :)

    Update: Edit message is back! It is now available in the latest version of Mac Outlook (15.23). Please see here for details – https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/3165798

    Thanks for all the feedback! We had removed the ‘edit message’ feature due to what we perceived as low usage, but your feedback indicates it’s worth keeping. Therefore, we are planning to reinstate this feature soon in Outlook 2016 for Mac. Thanks for your support.

  13. Option to disable “quote only selected text on reply” feature

    If some mail text is selected, only that text is set in quote part on reply. This behavior is not very convenient for me as a longtime user of Outlook for Windows desktop.
    I want an option to disable it and let Outlook behave like Windows client.

    Hi all, as of release 16.21 it is possible to disable “quote only selected text on reply” in Mac Outlook. Go to Outlook/Preferences/Composing and uncheck the
    “Only reply to selected text” box.

    Thanks for your support!
