    • Provide a way to migrate back to Outlook for Windows! With Office 2011 it was finally possible to go from Win to Mac, how can I go back?

      The only reason I am using a Mac today is that with Mac Office 2011, MS provided a simple way to export Outlook pst files to Mac Outlook 2011. Unfortunately I hate the Office experience on the Mac and would love to go back to a Windows computer and MS Office for Windows. However MS does not support migrating back from Mac Outlook to Win Outlook. Please provide the ability to go back to Windows Outlook.

        Offline Folder to Archive, Organize and Access my webmail locally. This keeps the Webmail slim, and I could search older messages local and offline.

        • iOS-like standalone, lightweight app

          I would happily pay €10-20 for a lightweight, standalone Outlook Mac app, similar to the apps on iOS.

          Standard Outlook is super heavy, clunky and has about a million features I never use. The iOS app has been a revelation and I would love to see something similar on the Mac.

          Ideally this would come free to 365 subscribers, but even as a subscriber I think I'd happily pay for a really good, clean app.

          • autodiscover

            Outlook 2010 and 2013 for Windows allow whitelisting of redirected autodiscover servers, which will prevent users from being presented with an "Outlook was redirected to the server <server fqdn> to get new settings for your account..." warning. https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/2480582 An equivalent function in Office 2016 for Mac would be very useful. Personally I would expect to see the list stored in the user's Outlook preferences .plist.

            • Allow dragging of emails to current categories to attach a category to the email

              I want to be able to drag emails into a category (like I can with my pc) in order to flag the category. This is much easier than right clicking to assign the category.

                Remove selected individuals from a meeting invite, when invited as part of a contact group.

                Scenario: Mary and Lisa are both members of a Contact Group called 'Company XYZ Organization A Members'. Both are transitioning from their current teams, which are part of Organization A, to new teams at the same company, which are part of Organization B. The Admin for Organization A, Kate, recently sent an internal meeting invite to the Contact Group 'Company XYZ Organization A Members' and was later asked to remove Mary and Lisa from the meeting invite. Since this functionality is not currently supported in…

                • The option "Capitalise first letter of sentences" when active send the second character in between the signature. This is a bug

                  The option "Capitalise first letter of sentences" when active send the second character in between the signature line which happened to be on the next line. This seems to be a bug in Outlook 2016 for Mac. Please fix it as soon as possible. Thank you

                    For users that are switching from PC to Mac, or are simply in the habit of creating an off-line archive of important emails, this is truly essential.

                    • cursor

                      Hide the mouse cursor while typing... This is standard on the Mac (and has been since the 1980's.) When you type, the mouse pointer goes away, thus preventing it from obscuring the text you are typing.

                      • Fix the bug that doesn't allow you to save a Contact card open from the FROM line unless you make a change to the contact first.

                        If you try to save a new contact from the FROM line of an email, clicking SAVE & CLOSE does nothing unless you make a change in the contact.
                        The functionality in WIndows Outlook 2016 is "ADD CONTACT" and it looks the same but actually adds a contact when you click the SAVE button.

                          • allow users to customize calendar intervals

                            In Outlook for Windows, I had my calendar set up to show 5 minutes intervals so that I could keep track of my activities over the course of the day. I know I can set custom reminders in Outlook on the Mac and I can schedule appointments that aren't constrained to 30 minute intervals. But I can't select a 10 or 15 minute interval for the calendar, so my appointments are all shown overlapping on the screen even when the number of hours shown is at the lowest level (4). Related to this (I think), it would be great if…

                                      • Enable sending emails instantly without yet receiving new emails

                                        Please allow us to send emails including replies to already received emails whilst choosing to not yet receive new emails from the server - like a 'partially online' setting. Exchange should allow this to allow us to deal with pending issues without the distraction of new emails constantly arriving.

                                        • Handoff Support between Outlook on Mac and iOS

                                          Apple Mail supports Handoff between Mac and iOS, so one can begin composing an email on their phone or tablet and continue seamlessly on a laptop or desktop.

                                          All APIs required to realize the same functionality across iOS Outlook and Outlook 2016 for Mac are available to be implemented with minimal effort.
