  1. Create An Option to ACTUALLY Turn Off Junk E-Mail Protection

    Junk E-mail is catching good emails, even when I put emails from those senders back in my inbox! I have turned the setting to "OFF" which isn't even labeled properly..The two lowest options for the levels of junk e-mail protection are as follows;

    "None"
    "Turn junk e-mail protection"

    "Low"
    "Catch the most obvious junk e-"

    When I set it to "None", things are STILL being cause by the junk filter. I work with databases so there are a number of automated reports that get emailed to me. I have filters set up to accept and organize those reports but junk…

  2. Allow user-defined week start...

    Outlook for 365 Home (on Mac) has a calendar starting on Sunday. I need it to start on Monday. Can a user-selected option be integrated into the software, please?

  3. The view of the Outlook mail

    1/ The original of the outlook mail looks so white and hard to read the text. Add the background blue color will help a lot.
    2/ All folders need colors too.

  6. Change in email "status" would not occur until email was either resorted or folder collapsed and reopened

    If your email is sorted by Status, opening or changing the status of an Unread email immediately moves it to Sent or Read and you lose your place in the list of Unread emails. Leaving the email in place until either the folder was collapsed and reopened, or the sorting criteria was changed, would prevent this and make it easier for those of us managing larger numbers of unread emails. This "feature" would apply to each folder so the change in status wouldn't "move" the email until resorted or collapsed and reopened the folder.

  7. Inbox is blank

    I am not able to view any mail on inbox folder after recent upgrade to my office 2016 for Mac. While all other folders are getting synchronised with the exchange server; Inbox remains blank - no message there. But I can see my inbox messages from Outlook on Windows and on my iPhone.

  8. I suggest you add a feature in the Outlook 2016 export to allow export emails between two specific dates

    I suggest you add three features in the Outlook 2016 for Mac similar to Outlook for Windows,:
    - allowing to copy or move emails (archiving is only moving and does not allow copying)
    - allowing to copy or move emails between two specific dates, to ensure regular archiving on a quarterly or annual basis.
    - allowing to create a new email file, and than in the main Outlook dashboard to copy or move emails from the existing file to the new file.

  10. certificate

    When launching outlook it always reports "A secure connection cannot be established with the server <mymaildomain.nl>. Do you want to continue."
    It should not connect to that server since we are using Office 365. I think outlook is using some kind of auto probe method trying to find a server and encountering an invalid certificate. Btw, we can't change the certificate because it's a hosted webserver.

  12. Collapse all below on option-click

    It would be great if we could Option-Click the arrows next to the day or week and have ALL the items below close as well and then stay close even after app restart.

  13. Ability to change date format in the list view when viewing the calendar in list view

    The list view in outlook is very handy for a clean look. The problem is at a quick glance since it is in the Month-day-time format unless you know what the day is off the top of your head it gets really hard to make sense of it quickly. What I recommend is having an option to view it by day of the week (i.e. monday, tuesday, etc) when looking at it from the "work week" view. I think it would make it easier when looking at the week as a whole.

  18. Create/edit tasks from directly from the tasklist

    It'd be great to have ability to create/edit tasks directly from the tasklist (without opening the new task dialog).
