  1. Picture/Logo Missing when not in Main Account

    I have two account and all my contacts are in the second account. I can simply access this from emails with address book but when i open emails, Outlook for Mac does not scan for the person in the second address book. So i can't see the picture or logo I added.

  3. Disable Arial Hebrew in the Font field to make it easier to choose Arial

    When I type Arial into the font field in Outlook's menu bar it keeps replacing it with Arial Hebrew. I have to manually delete 'Hebrew' every time. I want to be able to remove Arial Hebrew from my computer or at least disable it.

  4. Change the layout of the Week and Work Week view in Calendar, to more clearly associate name of day with numeric date of day.

    The Week and Work Week views in calendar display the name of the day centred in the column.

    The numeric date for that day is to the left of the column, and the numeric date for the next day is to the left of its column. The name of the day (‘Tuesday’) therefore appears almost entirely equidistant between its own date (‘5’) and the next day’s date (‘6’). This is massively confusing, and I keep getting the date wrong as a result!

    Please move the name of the day (‘Tuesday’) to the left of its column instead of centreing it.…

    Hi there,

    I'm using Mac Outlook 2016.

    If most of the options tab on New Mail are persistent configurations, why not to appear in Preferences/Email?

    It's more intuitive, I think:)

    Regards,

  6. Searching Email

    After closing the search function in the inbox you should be back at the beginning. This is not the case at the moment.

  7. Support for monitors in portrait mode.

    I use two external monitors in addition to my MacBook. One of the external monitors is rotated 90°.

    1) Even at 1920 x 1080 the calendar view still scrolls. It would be nice to see the entire day. As is, I can't even see the entire workday!

    2) Also, I haven't been able to reliably reproduce, but there seems to be a stickiness issue with the Reading Panel for the Inbox. It frequently disappears when I switch between the calendar and the Inbox or between mail folders. It seems like it may have something to do with the height of…

  10. Sidebar: please remove "star" option to add/remove favorites...

    It's a good idea to have Favorites, but implementation is wrong. Star button usually is clicked not because of I would to change the Favorites, but because of I would like to view the item. I would like not have such accidental clicks - please either remove it or make it working with a long click.

  14. MAKE YOUR ******* APP WORK!!!!!

    Onedrive must be the worst storage system ever. Why is it do difficult to avoid freze and hangs. And why is it so difficult to prevent spam. Gmail works so much better. I have to say, I only have bad things to say about you!!

    1) make word work on Macs. The template problem is horrible.
    2) make the one drive app work on iphone. To search and delete takes for ever. The same goes in browser.
    3) prevent spam and virus. I dont understand why this is so difficult.

    YOU CHARGE Money for your service: Make it work!

  16. Add the ability to look into colleagues calendars like on PC

    On Office for PC I can easyly open the calendars of my colleagues within my organization and look up their shedule and if they are free or blocked or away (Without that anybody need to set up Reading or Writing Rights for me). It would be great if you can add this feature for Office on Mac too. Thanks and greetings from germany! :)

  17. Don't show notifications for emails that are being deleted from a Rule

    It's sort of the opposite of the "Allow notification for filtered messages" idea. I have rules to delete certain emails, and I'm still getting notifications for them.

  18. Please reinstate the ability to subscribe to password-protected calendars.

    In previous versions of Outlook, I was able to subscribe to calendars. While others have requested this functionality, I'd like to subscribe to password-protected calendars.

    Specifically, I use OmniFocus, a project management application solely for OS X. One of it's features is calendar reminders. They automatically appear in my iPhone and iPad calendars, but do not appear in Outlook, which is the primary application I use for work.

  19. Exchange Block Sender Support

    In Microsoft's infinite wisdom they have chosen to not support block sender with exchange accounts. I think this is a no brainer solution they need to add this. Now that I have subscripted to all my cat video blogs and other cat memes I can't block all the unwanted email communication. I am unable to block emails about dogs which I can't stand. This causes me issues, health issues as the stress of opening up my email and seeing a dog email without being able to block it. Please fix this allow me to block senders in exchange accounts if…

  20. Change the Outlook MacBook toucher defaults or allow customisation

    The "send email" button on the MacBook touchbar in Outlook is a disaster. I frequently send unfinished emails with just a slip of a finger. Remove it, add a warning popup or allow customization of the toucher (preferably the latter).
