  2. You should be able to name Favorite inboxes

    Currently you cannot name your favorites under inboxes, you should be able to do this.

  4. Better Junk Mail filtering for Outlook Mac, please!

    The amount of junk mail I receive each day is driving me crazy every day! No matter how many of them I block there's always a whole new lot the next day!

  6. "Save As" dialogue auto selects filename only, not extension

    Currently on Outlook for Mac 2016, using "Save As" on an attachment will highlight/select the entire filename, including file extension, to be renamed. This results in users saving files without an extension, as it's been overwritten.

    In all other apps, including other Office apps, "Save As" only selects the name of the file, not the file extension, so it's not inadvertently overwritten.

  7. Change the favourites indicator

    Previously, unread emails were nice and clear in a solid lozenge with the text reversed out. Now the unread email count is faint and when you're moving up and down the folders the unread count gets covered with the stars. Users like me who rely on folders (40+ folders) find this extremely distracting and a real usability disjoint. Having a right click add to favourite or somewhere in the toolbar would suffice. This is not a feature which needs to be so readily available as users will never be relying on this on a daily basis like the unread count…

  8. Group similar folders

    This option was available in 15.33 and it's gone in 15.38. Please bring this option back.

  10. Don't switch to individual mailbox when reading a message

    Before the recent update, if you were in the Inbox for all accounts, you stayed there. With the latest update, you now switch to the inbox of the account whose email you just opened. This is really frustrating if you want to look at all your mail at once, so there should be an option to return to your general "all" Inbox.

  12. Disable automatic scrolling as time passes.

    Please provide a switch/button to disable automatic scrolling of the calendar. For me it is not very beneficial to see an empty evening after work, and have to search for standard 8-5 work day to anticipate tomorrow's schedule. I'd like to be able to lock my calendar view to see only the work day.

  13. Custom Email Views that can be saved to a button on tool bar

    Offer the ability to "save" several custom email views and an option to assign the views to a button that can be added to the ribbon for easy access to a specific custom view.

    This is really needed in a business setting where you receive 100's of emails a day, I need to quickly view my inbox several different ways to get at specific email types quickly.

    For example:

    I want a custom email view by categories, sorted by most recent date and filtered for "unread" and assign that to a button that can be placed on the ribbon.

    Right…

  14. Do something... anything

    Due to upcoming discontinuation of security updates, I paid over $100 to upgrade from Outlook for Mac 2011 to Outlook for Mac 2016. With all of the room for improvement in this product it is unbelievable that nothing has changed in 5 years.

  15. Sign in once for user with permissions to multiple accounts

    Every morning, I have to enter my credentials 7 times for, once for each of the inboxes to which I have access. There are several resource room calendars and mail-only accounts I administer.

    I am using Outlook for MAC Version 15.38 (170902)

  16. ...fix a bug.

    Ever since the last update, Outlook hangs when I reply to an email. Sometime I must Force-Quit and relaunch Outlook. Running MacOS Sierra 10.12.6 on a 4.0GHz i7 iMac with 32GB of RAM so it's not a hardware slow down issue.

  17. Allow us to move library files to a different location

    For those of us who have decades of emails with thousands of attachments, this can consume all your drive space really quit. Can you PLEASE allow us to manage where Outlook stores messages and attachments? My 256GB SDD had over 100GB taken by outlook.

  18. Configuring the main page for Outlook for Mac

    I have just purchased Outlook for Mac 2017. I want to configure the main page so I can see all my email files, emails in my Inbox and Sent box and also a list of my Tasks and a Calendar. It appears I am unable to add the last 2 items. I have earlier versions of Outlook which allow me to do this. Is this feature available on the new version ?
