  3. Make send and receive accurate; send should be when the email was sent and received when it actulally gets to my computer. At present not.

    Make send and receive accurate; send should be when the email was sent and received when it actually gets to my computer. At present they are identical. Was not the case before an update in 12/18; before that I had a date sent that may be as much as 2 days from date received (if I was off line for 2 days, for example); now date sent and received are IDENTICAL regardless of when I turn on the computer - AND DATE SENT IS NOT WHEN SENT BUT WHEN I RECEIVED IT. Very disappointing. And your tech "help" offers ecxuses…

  5. Open Outlook msg file format in Outlook on macOS

    It is critical that Outlook provide complete compatibility across platforms. I frequently receive .msg attachments which do not open with Outlook on macOS, even though they were created by Outlook 2016. This makes the .msg file format less useful, and users are forced to use solutions such as Adobe Acrobat for reliable interoperability.

  7. Allow Customization of the Message Ribbon

    Allow customization of the ribbon for Mac users. Every day I need to scroll to right to access the button to add a link to an email.

  8. Retain preferences after updates

    The preferences I've set for Outlook mail are reset every time I perform an update. Specifically (for me, most annoyingly) affecting fonts and auto-correct. Have to reset font size (back to 12pt from 11pt) and auto-correct (do not auto-capitalize TWO INitial CApitals, do not auto-capitalize the first letter of sentences, do not auto-capitalize names of days).

  9. Last Modified By and At Time displayed on calendar events

    It would be really nice to see Last Modified By and At Time displayed on calendar events, similar to the Windows version. This is especially useful for shared calendars when you want to know who added or changed an item.

  11. Add a voting function for email in outlook for Mac. This is an efficient tool and enables it to be used as a governance tool in business.

    Voting functions in PC based MS Outlook are common and for an integrated system with multiple devices. As an efficiency tool that increases likelihood of response at is it is an easy and useful tool. However, if it is not available for those in your team who may be using a different Mac platform it becomes useless for all.

  13. Add setting to Show Details of email header (TO/CC/BCC) by default

    Add an option in Settings to "Show" or "Hide" the email header details (TO/CC/BCC lines) by default, instead of requiring user to click "Show Details" for an email.

    In the latest update, when viewing an email, the email header is now collapsed and all contacts listed on one line. This makes it impossible to know at a glance if you were on the TO list or the CC list, which is very frustrating. You have to manually click on Show Details for each email, and it doesn't remember your choice when you look at one again.

    Please add an option…

  15. "Suggest a time" window needs to be added for Mac (not "Propose a time" )

    "Suggest a time" is not available in Outlook for Mac and it should be added. This is not "propose a time" but rather the PC option that shows you the conflicts and best times for each attendee before you actually schedule the meeting!!!!

  19. Snooze Mail, Send Later, and other features for G Suite Business users.

    It would be great for G Suite Business users to use Outlook's features to it's current features full potential. Our company currently uses G Suite for our mail services but the Snooze Mail and Send Later features aren't enabled. Snooze Mail works great on Outlook's mobile app, but hoping we can use all on all platforms.
