  2. For the "work offline" option, allow users to be able to choose which accounts to turn off.

    I have both personal and business accounts within my outlook. I would like to be able to turn off my business account, as to not receive new emails, etc when I am working in my personal accounts.

  3. Support more message Read/Compose/Reply options

    Support more message Read/Compose/Reply options. Outlook has many options for MS Windows. It would be nice to get some of these options for Outlook on MAC

  5. Stop Outlook 2016 asking for authentication and passwords

    Stop Outlook 2016 asking for authentication consistently and stop the.
    "The server for account "***" returned the error "Logon failure: unknown user name or bad password." Your username/password or security settings may be incorrect. Would you like to try re-entering your password?. If you click yes it continues without a password prompt but wipes password from Account preferences and keychain. Lots of very annoyed users.

  6. Add a one click Accept (and decline) button (s)

    The accept button on Outlook for Mac is awkward when 99% of the time most users will click the accept button on an appointment.

    Please make Accept the default action with a drop down for the other options and the same for the decline button.

  7. OAuth 2.0

    I can't use Mac Outlook with corporate Gmail, where I have to use two factor auth (no option to turn it off or use an app password like with personal accounts without corporate policy restrictions).

  8. Allow Mutliple Directory Servers

    allow Outlook to be configured with more then one directory server for an account.
    We use Exchange accounts and configure the Directory Services for our Domain server. It would be nice to be able a "failover" DC in Directory Servers.

  10. comma as address separator

    I know Mac Outlook has not allowed a comma as an email separator, but this would be really helpful when copying in a string of emails from another source.

  11. S/MIME encryption of distribution list email without expansion

    It would be very useful to be able to send S/MIME encrypted emails to distribution lists on Outlook for Mac 2016 in the same manner as you are able to on Outlook for Windows, i.e. not to have to expand the distribution list into its individual recipients, just to be able to send to the mailing list itself.

  14. Support for Wallet App / Passbook on iPhone / iPad.

    When making flight bookings online and you select to receive your boarding pass VIA Passbook the pkpass file that is sent to the Outlook mail does not open the Passbook App to load the digital booking pass there. Outlook does not recognise this file as a Passbook file.

    Please enable functionality.

    Would be nice if this was possible.

  15. View with Calendar and Email

    It is a pain to open a second main window to view my calendar and email simultaneously. I would love a view with both.

  16. calendar

    Add the possibility to paste images and (links to) documents in a calendar item. In the Windows version this is already possible since more than 5 years.
    Very useful to paste information, map, agenda, ... of a conference or meeting.

  18. Unquoted inline responses on quoted or indented replies

    The new editor rolled out a month or so ago removed the ability to respond inline to indented/quoted messages without having your own responses be indented/quoted.

    This has been a basic functionality in all email clients since indented/quoted replies were invented. Please bring back the ability to insert un-indented new lines in quoted messages.

  20. Full Emoji support

    While there is the option in the menu to bring up the emoji keyboard Outlook doesn't show them properly. Shows as blank or a random letter.
