  1. UNITED KINGDOM: County Field for Address

    I'm from the UK and I use Microsoft Exchange in my Outlook For Mac.

    UK addresses have 'County' i.e. Hertfordshire, Cornwall, Essex etc. This is the equivalent of a State in USA.

    In Outlook for Windows, Microsoft Exchange, Apple Contacts, Old versions of Outlook for Mac, Google Contacts etc. this field exists as it's essential.

    Outlook for Mac is the only place not to, so I presume it's an oversight?

  4. Additional line for addresses should appear in the contact card

    When entering someones address you should allow for a second and third line for things like a suite, apartment or office (the same way you do in Outlook for Windows).

  5. Automatically display photo for an email based on Gravatar / Facebook / LinkedIn / etc

    If there is no image associated with a contact/email address, Outlook should fetch a public image from Gravatar, Facebook, or LinkedIn.

    This should be configurable - users can specify which sources they would like to use and in what priority order.

  6. Can you please add a feature to STOP automatically adding contacts?

    It is really frustrating that my people list continues to be populated by random contact Outlook pulls out of my email. Please create an option to stop this (as is possible with Outlook for Windows).

  10. Link Contacts to a central Address

    Link Contacts to a single, central Address, as Windows can, then when a business where I have dozens of separate Contacts moves, I can update a single Address and get on with living life

  11. Automatic Reminders to buy Birthday or Anniversary Presents

    Outlook should allow for automatic reminders to buy birthday or anniversary presents based on the personal information entered in someone's contact. Currently you get a reminder the same day as the event which is not very helpful when you have to purchase a present for someone.

  13. Make it MUCH easier to add a vcf to an email to forward contacts to others.

    Make it MUCH easier to add a vcf/vCard to an email in order to forward contacts to a colleague. Now I have to individually find the contact, forward it, grab the attached vcf, and add it to my email of vcfs to my colleague. Really clumsy.

  15. I suggest you provide for making the mac address book as default for ms outlook 2016 for mac

    provide for making mac address book as default option for outlook instead of people. Generally mac users also use iPad, iPhone etc., and hence address book alterations gets affected in all connected devices thus providing the latest details for contacts like email address etc.,

  18. Fix the bug that doesn't allow you to save a Contact card open from the FROM line unless you make a change to the contact first.

    If you try to save a new contact from the FROM line of an email, clicking SAVE & CLOSE does nothing unless you make a change in the contact.
    The functionality in WIndows Outlook 2016 is "ADD CONTACT" and it looks the same but actually adds a contact when you click the SAVE button.
