  1. The filter for unread messages actually does not work! The option is there

    The option to filter for 'unread messages' does not work! The option is there and it used to work on previous versions of Outlook for iOS/Outlook for Mac. However, on Outlook 2016 for Mac nothing happens when the option is selected! So not happy about this :-(

  2. It concerns outlook for mac. Your recent transformation of the box for the e-mails is not a success. It was good before, it is very bad now.

    for the e-mail box on PC Mac : to return on the old formulation which was net and clear. The new one is a drop and will be a decline.

  4. darken gridlines in calendar

    Make the calendar gridlines a little darker so they are more visible. They are so light that it is difficult to see them, particularly with shared calendars.

  6. What's New in the Help menu should show detailed improvements

    What's New item in the Help menu in Outlook for Mac 2016 should load a nice description of each of the items fixed and link to detailed release notes. Currently it seems to not show anything. I notice switching to view my Calendar has become quicker and with less visual anomalies within the UI. It would be great for Outlook team to exclaim these things as they improve!

  8. typing appears in wrong place

    This keeps happening where I type then go back to change a word and the typing appears in an entirely different place than where I places the cursor, sometimes even in the middle of a word!
    Also can't select type occasionally. Yesterday both my boss and I had a glitch where hitting the space bar would not preview an attachment

  9. calendar sync between

    Currently when you add an advent to another persons calendar outside your own domain - it takes several hours to show up on the other persons calendar. For example - I put a doctor appointment on my partners calendar and he doesn't see it on his calendar until some sort of sync happens hours later.

  10. "no response required"

    Add the "No Response Required" button for when meeting updates come in. I'm pretty sure that all it does is delete the update, but Windows Outlook has trained me to press that button, so now I'm scared on Mac Outlook to just delete the update. It's silly, but causes me stress.

  12. Change the handling of email links in messages to compose new email in Outlook

    In Outlook 2016, when a email contains an email address, clicking on the email address opens a Compose window in the default email application on the computer. Since the user is in Outlook when clicking on the email address, Outlook should assume that the user wants to compose the new email in Outlook

  13. Improve compatibility with El Capitan

    Outlook is having a terribly hard time loading on my Mac Pro w/ El Capitan. I get the spinning wheel of death when I click on an email or scroll through any text. This seems to coincide with the times there is a pending update, but maybe that's just a coincidence. It's getting so Outlook is becoming a time eater.

  15. with android ok. with ubuntu ko.

    I apreciate the improvements for android. But i have 2 notebooks and 1 pc running ubuntu and there the right skyscraper advertising has to load before you can do anything on outlook. It used to take long before, it is even worse now!

  17. Saving Historical Calendar, Outlook 2016 for Mac

    Outlook for Mac 2016 -- saving calendar history. Please again allow us to save specified date ranges as a separate calendar. That makes it possible to keep historical data without making current calendar file size too large.

  18. When I save rules, please do not change the order.

    When I make changes to existing rules, and save them, more often than not, the order is destroyed. This is a problem because some rules copy to folders and continue and others move to folders and stop.

  19. make search smarter on the cmd-shift-m "type name of destination folder in Search Box"

    make search smarter on the cmd-shift-m "type name of destination folder in Search Box"

    I mark an email with cmd-shift-m, and search for the folder to put the message in.

    if i type "ProjectX", the folder "_ProjectX" does not appear.

    It could be more modern

  20. you should make outlook for linux and you should also make your own linux distro called Windows 10 for linux

    you should make a linux distro called "windows linux"
    it would use a heavily modified KDE desktop made to look like windows 10 and would have wine installed to run windows apps
