  1. 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...

  3. 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.

  6. template appointment

    Please make available the option to save a calendar appointment as template.

    Under Windows I used the "save as" > template for appointments often. Unfortunately the "save as" is disabled in appointments, while it is available in e-mails (which I use even more often, too).

  7. 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…

  8. I suggest you drag mails to folder

    With the recent version dragging mails to local folder has disappeared. Now you have to click on the "Move" bottom and select the folder where you want the mail to be moved.

  10. Outlook for MAC to have Send/Receive groups so that we can disable auto sending of emails when outlook is online

    Similar to Outlook on PC, Outlook for MAC to have Send/Receive groups so that we can disable auto sending of emails when outlook is online. Basically in Windows Outlook i can stop automatic sending of messages when i click Send and it goes out only when i click Send/Receive.

    This is very useful to have

  11. Please show the '>' symbol for quoted text when replying to emails in plain text format.

    Emails with quotes prefixed '> ' have the quote mark stripped. Please let Outlook show this quotation standard.

  12. Use the term 'Junk' as the simplified and general term for spam messages and all synonymous terms and concepts

    Use the term 'Junk' as the simplified and general term for spam messages and all synonymous terms and concepts
    Often, users interchange the meaning of Junk vs Junk Email vs Spam vs Spam Email that causes confusion.

  15. Calendar Meeting Control

    In previous versions, I was able to have complete control of my calendar meetings, whether I owned the meeting or not. Currently, I'm only able to customize my owned meetings and I would like to bring back the functionality to control all meetings. For example, I have two meetings overlapping, but will be leaving one meeting early and attend another. I'm now not able to fix the overlap...

  18. 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…

  19. Add Contact List (Groups) synchronization with Exchange Server.

    Please add Contact List (Groups) synchronization with Exchange Server.

    Having to enable "On My Computer folders" and store them locally is disappointing.

    Thank you.

  20. Allow for drag and drop/copying items from one calendar to another.

    On the windows version of outlook, you can simply drag items from one calendar to other calendars and it will copy the event over to that calendar.
