  4. Notification Rules/Alerts for Sub Folders.

    It is important to set different notification rules for subfolders to manage the mails efficiently.

    We see the badges, the number of mail received in the subfolder, but doesn’t notify us that a new email arrived.

    There should be an option in the rules whether we want desktop alert or notification for emails that come into that particular subfolder.

  5. View full email addresses in To line of email

    When composing a message when I add people to the To: or CC: lines they show up as "friendly" names. I can't find any way to view the explicit email address that this will go to. This causes multiple frustrations and misdirected emails, as some mailing lists show up as people's names and some people have multiple email addresses that I want to be able to choose between.

  8. disable google account microsoft cloud sync

    Add an option to add a Google account without syncing your email and other data to the Microsoft Cloud. There doesn't seem to be an option for this, so you cannot use Outlook for email without giving your content to Microsoft (no matter what the Privacy Policy says), not even with IMAP.

  9. Place the "-" and "+" buttons of Advanced Search on the left side of dropdown menu.

    Advanced Search of email shows the "-" and "+" buttons on the right side of the search box, but they should be placed on the left side of the dropdown menu for better usability. I would suggest that the ideal order is "+", "-", dropdown menu and search box (= text box).

  11. Enable OAuth Login Feature to Add Mail Accounts

    Mail Account provider Sky Yahoo, have introduced new requirements for adding their Mail Accounts to other programs, e.g. OUTLOOK (desktop). Yahoo has removed the feature for generating a third-party App Password, so it is not now possible to add an existing or new account to OUTLOOK. The implication is that Microsoft Outlook needs to be updated to enable add/use some Mail Accounts. Outlook IOS seems unaffected, so I would like to suggest that Microsoft Outlook introduces an OAuth style feature.

    Meanwhile, I cannot use my primary sky Yahoo email on my Office 365 Outlook for Mac and have had to…

  18. Get a better support system.

    Have an additional option for Help/Support. Chat is not enough. Add phone support at a minimum. Ideally, add the ability to port in and be a real IT person.

  19. The slide bad overlaps with the follow-up flag

    The slide bad overlaps with the follow-up flag. When you try to click on the flag right after scrolling through messages using the track bar, most of the times you end up clicking the slide bar instead of the flag because of the overlap.
