  1. Add / Display Holidays

    Really, you don't have holidays yet? Every calendar I use has the option to display holidays. Outlook for Mac is the only one that doesn't have this and this is what I use for business. Microsoft really confounds me and many other business people I know. You don't add some obvious features people use and can't be that hard to add.

  2. Customize the Outlook Ribbon so the Send to OneNote button can be hidden.

    Please allow us to hide/unhide the sen to OneNote and other Add-ins buttons so that the ribbon would not be re-arranged because of the space that is taken up by the add-ins icons.

  4. Marking e-mails with ink

    How many times do you receive (long) e-mails that you keep in your inbox because you want to return to them later, e.g. to check one of the links that was included? Problem is, anytime you do go back to this message, you have to read everything again because you don't remember anymore WHAT it is you wanted to check later. Here's where siple inking would come in handily. Let the user mark the section of the e-mail (s)he want to check later.

  5. Keep last email (email thread)

    sometimes we have a lot of emails as conversational emails (forward/reply) I wish if we have a way "keep the last email" -FOR REFERENCE instead of deleting each email in email thread manually.

  7. I suggest you add spell check before sending as an option.

    I suggest you add spell check before sending as an option. Yes there is spell check as you go but spell before sending is better and what people are used to using outlook. Not sure why the MAC version has to miss such clear essentials.

  8. Support handling of custom protocols.

    Support handling of custom protocols:

    1. Treat custom protocol links as hyperlinks: protocol://my-awesome-link (need ability to click and highlight it)
    2. Support open application that is responsible for handling custom protocol links:
    With example above application responsible for protocol:// handling should be opened

  9. Requesting Outlook for Mac have an image attachment file resize utility. To both resize the image(s) and show the outgoing email size.

    We have an office of over 100 employees often sending images between design teams. Our previous email client application had the ability to resize images to lower resolution at the time of sending an email. Without this feature in Outlook we have found more difficulty in our workflow.

  10. Dark Mode Option

    I love the idea of the dark mode option, however on most cases I find it hard to read with a dark background due to recent updates. I hopes there's a permanent option to switch to light mode for reading pane, instead of having to push the light switch all the time when scrolling through emails.
    Now I gotta turn off the whole dark mode option for reading and efficiency purposes.

  11. Put the categories back in sidebar!

    Put the categories back in the sidebar! Why on earth would you take that feature away? Now I can't view contacts or calendar by category, rendering the categories essentially useless.

  14. customize BCC

    Allow the ability to customize and set a BCC email address by default, instead of having to enter an email address in the BCC field every time.

    Currently, you can only set to BCC yourself as default.

  15. Customizable quick action icons hovering over messages

    I want to be able to customize my quick action icons that appear when I hover over my messages. It's so easy to accidentally delete or archive a message when trying to mark it as important.

  16. Dim past days and events in outlook

    at the moment, all days and events look exactly the same, regardless if that day/even has passed. By dimming any past days and events, the most relevant and pressing events will be highlighted and easy to recognize.

  18. I suggest you add CalDav support to Outlook for Mac.

    Corporate mail server is CalDave - whether we like it or not. Want to integrate in Outlook rather than using iCal!
