    With to many employee in the To field for the invites hides the location box and can't type in it. That will need to be fixed.

  2. Pinch

    I would love to have the same possibility as in Outlook XP. There I can click in the mail or elsewhere and use the mouse wheel to change the font size.

    On the mac this function, would be: Tap in the mail, or elsewhere and use the "pinch" function with the two fingers to make the font size bigger.

  3. better reading view

    better read view of emails, sometimes you get long internal mails like "re: aw: re: etc" and you have the complete older conversation to understand. 1. idea fade out long repeated mail signature and 2. idea change the orientation of these long conversation the oldest on the top for natural reading - from the top (old) to the end (newest)
    maybe this is a idea for windows outlook too?

  4. Fix Outlook for Mac so that it does not require insecure renegoitation

    Outlook for Mac 2011 and Outlook 2016 for Mac both require Microsoft Exchange (or a reverse proxy in front of it) to be configured to either support the old SSL protocol or configure them to support "compatible" insecure client-initiated renegotiation.

    As SSL 2.0 is completely insecure and all current guidance for security has administrators also disabling SSL 3.0, this means that the insecure-client-initiated renegotiation must still be enabled on Exchange or the reverse proxy. This is an insecure configuration that results in the possibility of a MITM attack.

    Please update Outlook for Mac (all supported versions and future versions) to…

  6. Support switching between "Reply" and "Reply All" from the compose window.

    For example, if you've already chosen "Reply" via the ribbon or Cmd+R, pressing Cmd+Shift+R will change the recipients to those that would've been selected had "Reply All" been selected from the ribbon. The native Mail client in macOS demonstrates this behavior nicely.

  8. In creating Smart Folders, being able sort by date

    At this point, new smart folders will not sort by date. There is some sort of metric going on that puts new tasks somewhere but not always in calendar order.

  12. I suggest you provide for making the mac address book as default for ms outlook 2016 for mac

    provide for making mac address book as default option for outlook instead of people. Generally mac users also use iPad, iPhone etc., and hence address book alterations gets affected in all connected devices thus providing the latest details for contacts like email address etc.,

  16. i suggest including responses as well, in conversation view

    when you create a rule to sort emails from an sender and sort via conversation. you do not see the responses as well unless you click on the top of the conversation. then it pops open in a different window. making this more like outlook client in windows would be a nice 1:1 function that would go over well.

  17. Scale down jpeg attachment size

    Would be good to be able to scale down the file size of a jpeg attachment so you can send more attachments. In the older version there was an option to reduce the file size.

  18. Outlook for Mac doesn’t autocomplete email addresses

    Outlook for Mac doesn’t autocomplete email addresses unless they are in the contacts. This is different behavior from Outlook for PC (which remembers addresses you’ve entered even if not in contacts.) Very confusing for users coming from Windows version who use this feature every day without a second thought.
