  2. Add Save & Send to Outlook for Mac

    This has been in the windows version for a few years now and even before it was added, I was able to use a third party add-in to perform the same function. I have just moved back onto Outlook at work (from gmail) but will be sticking with Apple Mail for my email.

  3. Unread Indicator

    Reading Pane Right has a bar on the left to indicate not read. This is good.
    Reading Pane Bottom or Off has no indication other that the hard to see color change. Old versions had a DOT to the left. Please put it Back

  5. Create ShareFile Plugin

    Can you please add a ShareFile plugin for Outlook for Mac? They are the standard in secured file sharing and encrypted email, especially for health care. There is a plugin for Outlook for PC, but not for Mac.

  6. Enable editing of attached Word documents without the need to save a copy

    Outlook for Mac 2011 allowed you to open an attached Word document and edit immediately before saving. 2016 insists that the document is read only and you must save a copy before editing.

    Why not simply give users the choice of saving a copy or start editing now?

  7. Please add the AFRIKAANS LANGUAGE to outlook.

    Can you please add the AFRIKAANS LANGUAGE to outlook. Because when typing in Afrikaans then the Ducth (Nederland) spelling came up. This is a total frustration. Please obtain the full Afrikaans version from the North West University in Potchefstroom (South Africa). Please Please please.

    second point.
    please add centimeter measurements as an option for Powerpoint

  9. office365 password change

    Allow users to change their Office365 account password through the Outlook for Mac 2016 client. Users work entirely out of Outlook, so when their password expires, they have to go to OWA, login, change the password, then change it in the their account settings. In a business environment this is cumbersome for a lot of users. I am the IT admin and would love to see Outlook prompt that your Office365 password is expired, then give a prompt allowing the old password to be input, as well as the new one twice, and then the password is changed for their…

  10. Allow the addition of a folder ( particularly Move to Archive) in the Ribbon

    Allow the addition of a folder ( particularly Move to Archive) in the Ribbon. So I dont have to select email click Move and Click the Folder. This should be a simple one click operation. I dont care about mail folders other than Delete and Archive.

  12. Create rules that can edit incoming mail subject lines

    It would be extremely helpful to be able to create a rule in Outlook (for Mac, at least) that would allow the user to edit the subject of incoming mail. For example, if I am receiving emails regularly from a system like Basecamp that prefaces the subject with "RE: Name of Basecamp Project" before every subject line, in the inbox, that is all you see and every email looks the same. With the increased use of systems that auto-generate emails as notifications, think any social media platform, wouldn't it be handy to have the meat of the subject line be…

  13. Add option for separator (grid) lines in message list as in PC version

    Please add the ability to show separator (grid) lines in the mail list view when showing list of incoming messages in full (i.e. when the preview panel is switched off). This feature is present and editable in the PC Outlook and previous Entourage programme, but has been omitted from the last two Office Macs version, rather frustrating. It is very useful to have this feature to allow long lists of mail messages to be distinguished visually. It is for this single reason that I am not using Outlook for Mac, as I receive 100+ e-mails a day and this feature…

  15. Command options

    When your Exchange mailbox gets wonky, you shouldn't have to log into a Windows machine just to run outlook.exe /cleanfreebusy.

    Silly.

  16. The list of suggested adresses helping to create a meeting

    In Outlook 2011 was very useful feature: it remembered the information you wrote down in adress field while creating meeting in calendar. So that the next time you start typing the symbols you see the list of the adresses you used earlier. In Outlook 2016 I couldn't find how to activate this feature, cause it doesn't work automatically.

  18. timestamp

    I get an email from a colleague. I know he sent it the previous night, since it hit my inbox after I left for the day. I want to check when I received it. EVERY email in my inbox from the previous day just has it down as "YESTERDAY" (though they are sorted correctly).

    I try to open it. What he sent isn't actually a message; he updated a meeting invitation (with the incorrect details). I can't tell on the notification that the event was modified, when he made the adjustment.

    I don't find shorthands like, "Yesterday", "Thursday", "Last Week"…
