  3. Make the insert as text option available when attaching a file

    When attaching a file, for example an HTML file, there should be a drop down option like there is on a PC, which allows you to insert the file as text into the body of the email. This will allow HTML emails to be sent from outlook without formatting being messed up and without using a third party email service.

  4. Read exported .OLM file WITHOUT having to re-import into Outlook.

    Please please have the option to read exported .OLM file WITHOUT having to re-import into Outlook. Inboxes get massive and take up all the server space - backed-up/exported emails should be able to be read without recreating the titanic. Even if Office / Outlook won't allow that please license someone else who will.

  6. Make it possible to create folders in Outlook for Mac 2016 (google preview)

    In Outlook for Mac 2016 ver. 16.7.0 when using Google G Suite (google preview) to connect, the function to create folders is not implemented.

    This I think is a very essential and basic function that should take priority over other functions in coming releases.

  7. Allow users to define the "Theme Fonts" for Outlook emails and calendar items.

    The preferences in Outlook allow a user to set default fonts when creating items, but this only applies to the first text entered in the message box. If the text insertion point is placed elsewhere, the text will be in the "Theme Font" that is listed in the font selection drop down box. This "Theme Font" is Calibri, and presently there is no way to change this "Theme Font". The result is messages done in multiple fonts, or constantly having to change stuff from the "Theme Font" to whatever the user prefers.

  11. Automatic Updater

    Listen to the user and when they say no to automatic updates, you NEVER ask again. No means no. It's a simple word. Is it too difficult to understand?

  13. Allow customizable badge notification per-inbox

    After the latest "fast ring" update to Outlook, the badge count/notification of unread emails shows the unread emails in ALL accounts. Prior to this update, the badge would only show the unread count of my primary inbox. After the update, it also shows the unread count in my department's shared inbox. It would be nice to choose which of these behaviors is preferable, as I bet some people may like this change and others (like myself) absolutely hate it.

  15. Cmd+Option+Shift+V should paste as plain text - macOS wide standard

    Please respect the macOS-wide standard for pasting so Cmd+Option+Shift+V pastes as plain text.

    This wastes crucial time having to reach for the mouse and choose "Keep Text Only" every single time...

  16. Give us the option for Old Icons

    The new icons are horrible. Too flat and childish looking. Would rather have the old icons with their 3-D effect which stood out from the background. Give us the option to switch back to the older better looking icons.

  17. Allow Outlook Calendar to import from iCal and subscribe to online calendar subscriptions.

    Subscriptions to online calendars are currently not allowed. This should be changed to allow subscriptions.

  18. OneNote

    On Mac version, please add functionality to send Outlook email to a page in a OneNote section. This feature is available on Windows version of Outlook but not Mac version. Currently the Mac version supports sending to a OneNote Section but not to a page in a section as does the Windows version.

    Would be a nice to have.

  20. Make current day more visible/highlighted in Calendar Week View

    We use the Week View in the Calendar primarily, as I'm sure most others do. It'd be nice to have a visual indicator to immediately see where we are currently and what the next meeting is.

    Example Screenshot of Proposal here: https://imgur.com/a/OgQeEXo

    There is currently a red line that spans across the entire calendar to indicate current time, but for some reason is spans across the entire week instead of just today, so it's not a good immediate identifier, though it helps.

    There's a blue dot over the Date Number at the top of the column, but that's also not…
