  2. Enable option to print a calendar month without weekends

    I often print out my calendar a month per page to plan future work. The weekends take up valuable space on the page and are of no use to me. It'd be great to be able to print a month to view without including weekends (or at the very least shrinking weekends down).

  4. Allow sorting of calendar entries by size

    If you need to clear space on your calendar, having the ability to sort calendar entries by size becomes very helpful. This feature exists in Outlook for Windows and it would be nice to see this in Outlook for Mac for the sake of feature parity.

  6. Have the option to make Unread email as a DEFAULT VIEW

    There is no option to keep the Unread emails view as a default, so you need to change the view every time you jump between folders.

  7. When changing the sort by criteria allow the collapsable groups to be default closed instead of default open.

    When changing the sort by criteria, allow the collapsable groups to be default closed instead of default open. When i sort by size or date I never want all of the groupings to be open. I want them to always start out closed so I can open just the single group that I want.

  9. Restore paste with style (changed in v15.22 or so?)

    When I used to paste from a Terminal window, the formatting went into the email to make the content look just like it does in the Terminal app. Now it uses a _similar_ font and font color but the background formatting is absent or not the same. Please restore or explain how why/what changed. Thanks.

  10. stop using wingdings

    Emails received from Windows users have emoticons displayed as "J". It turns out some idiot Microsoft developer is converting :) to Wingdings font specific character, which in fact violates unicode standards. Broken.

  11. Keep Track of Forgotten Email

    Keep track read timing and response stats for the particular email and see if there any chances this mail should be responded but it didn't. Suggest user a Smart Search over possibly forgotten email.

    My problem that I get tons of emails and sometime missing important ones due to use Outlook from multiple devices and often distracted.

  12. I suggest you to create a stable, functioning version of outlook, which never crashed and keeps resilience during work. It's a real pain in

    I suggest you to create a stable, functioning version of outlook, which never crashed and keeps resilience during work. It's a real pain in *** that each time something changes at network settings (getting into VPN, getting out of VPN, changing from cable network to WIFI) Outlook just plain crashes and has to be restarted. When will you ever provide stable software?

  13. I suggest you no longer automatically create move rule for new folder the user creates.

    I suggest you stop automatically creating a "move rule" after user creates a new folder for email. This is rather annoying as it overwrites one of the limited amount of move rules.

  14. from option in compose window

    Mac outlook 2016 seems to have no option for a “from” option to select the email address to use from one outlook.com email account. Outlook.com allows this, but not outlook itself. Please add this is outlook.

  15. Text Short Cut - as in Outlook for PC

    Outlook for PC's has the ability to create a "saved phrase". One that you use all the time - which can be inserted with the touch of a button.
    I really miss this feature, since I switched over to MAC machine.

  16. Automate outlook account creation based on AD account

    Outlook for Windows can automatically create an account in Outlook if the user account in Windows is an AD account. It would be great if Outlook for Mac could have similar functionality for Macs if it detects that the Mac is AD bound with an Exchange account. This would bring feature parity to Outlook for Mac.

  17. Bring back when selecting multiple emails, clicking to select an additional email views that email in the preview pane.

    This makes it easier to delete batches of emails from multiple conversations.

  18. Support Salesforce Lightning for Outlook integration

    When Lightning for Outlook finishes rendering in Outlook, a yellow banner reading "The option to relate emails isn't available now. Please check back shortly." gets displayed, effectively preventing associations of Outlook items with Salesforce records to be made. Or a red banner reading "Because Microsoft Exchange isn't available now, you can't relate emails and their attachments to Salesforce records until Exchange is available again."

  19. Clear (recent) mail address cache

    My corporation changed mail address, but there is no way to clear the old domain from Outlook for Mac. Any suggestion on the Internet support forums is marked with "this is a risky action" and I don't want to mess up my profile just to clear some auto-complete values. Outlook no longer offers an "X" next to the address that one wants to delete, thus this issue becomes uglier over time.

  20. I suggest you make copy/paste function available for body text from one mail to another

    Today copy/paste is very limited. When I select text in a sent mail and paste this in e new mail, the formatting of unordered and ordered list is gone. I expect similar copy/paste functionality as in other Microsoft apps like Word.
