  2. Add more control over the "Recent Addresses" or "Auto-Complete" Feature

    I would like to suggest adding more control over these features. Specifically adding the ability to turn the feature off completely. Also to add a feature to prevent certain addresses from being added to the list. Like a blacklist, to prevent junk emails from populating constantly and peoples personal email addresses. This would help prevent sending emails to the wrong addresses.

  4. Support for Gmail Global Address List

    Gmail Contacts can be in shared company Global Address Lists, just like Exchange. Outlook doesn't query or sync these lists, so I can't look up anybody's contact info.

  6. Allow pasting of an excel or google sheet column of emails into a new contact group!

    Would be AMAZING if we could copy and paste a whole column of email addresses from an excel column or google sheet column right into outlook contact group. It doesn’t let you do that. You have to copy and paste every single one. That is lame. Why can’t we import an email list or paste an emails list right into it? Even better would be in Excel if it recognized that it was a list of emails for the column then one option with right click or export or share or something like that built into excel would be ‘create…

  7. Re: Outlook using WRONG Display Name on outgoing emails.

    Outlook is making the assumption that I want my name attached to all my emails. It's attaching the wrong display name to all my outgoing emails.

    Its showing "John Doe <sales@abccompany.com>".

    But I specifically set it to show "ABC Company <sales@abccompany.com>".

    If I set the Display Name of my email account to ABC Company then all my emails should be from ABC Company. However, Outlook 2016 mac (version 16.10 - 180210) is creating a new "Me" profile in my Contacts and saying all my company emails are from me or John Doe instead. This is very…

  8. have the ability to disable autocomplete feature for email as it's remembering emails for all emails received even junk mail, don't need it.

    Have the option to remove auto complete for emails. It's remembering all email addresses of emails received and sent and no need to have junk mail remembered! It's also duplicating email addresses and creating new contact cards even though the contact's email is in their card.

  16. Allow contacts to be viewed in business card views

    Be able to view contacts in a business card view. Much easier to search if you can "click" on the letter of the alphabet and jump to that section.

  17. Sort Contacts by Company Name instead of the first name of the contact within the company.

    ..and enable "File As" field as in Outlook for Windows.
    Also preserve text formatting in Contact Notes such as Bold when importing Contacts from .pst file.

  19. Sync Google Contact Groups with Outlook Categories

    Syncing Google Contact groups with Outlook Mac Categories will allow you to sort your contacts in Outlook by Category. I find using Categories in Outlook for Windows to be an efficient way to manage several hundred business contacts at work. In fact, my Samsung Smartphone's native email client also syncs Google Groups which provides he same experience on my mobile phone.
