        • Allow notifications for shared inboxes

          Currently, when sharing an inbox with the rest of my team, I do not receive notifications for new emails. This is a big deal for support teams who share an account (e.g. itsupport@example.com), who need to make sure someone responds immediately when different people may need to monitor the same message queue

            • Add fuzzy search on folders

              When having several folder names where the first x letters are the same it is tiresome to have to spell it out until the first differentiating letter. Making the matching fuzzy would save a lot of typing.

                • Add jsuppo

                  Add support for right-clicking a link and downloading it using the default browser instead of just opening it. Worst case, even just saving it in the background to the Downloads folder would be good

                        • Add an option to sort mail by "pinned" status

                          On the outlook 365 website, there's a feature to "pin" messages to the top of your inbox so you can quickly refer to them

                          Could you guys add an option to Outlook 2016 for Mac to enable sorting mail by "pinned" status? I'm sure this would be a pretty simple option to add

                          I end up pinning alot of messages when I use the web portal - but then when I load up outlook on my computer, they all disappear, and I have no way to sort/find them again

                          Thank you!

                          • Signature font size does not cohere between editor and its appearance in an Email

                            The font size which can be set in the signature editor is -not- the font size you receive when writing an Email and using the signature.
                            So atm it is just trial and error regarding the outcome.

                              create a uniform way to exclude specific TLD's from email and place it automatically in the spam/junk folder so I don't have to individually exclude it.

                              • Add the option to schedule reminder emails on a daily, weekly, monthly, yearly, or choosing other options.

                                I would like to see an option to schedule reminder emails. When you have something that you need to remember daily, weekly, monthly, yearly, or just random days and you need others involved as well. This would be great is you need to send out an email that is the same each week to remind others of things that need to be done. I know that the calendar does this, but sometimes we need an email to be sent instead and it might need to be sent weekly.

                                Example: You need employees to respond to your email weekly with information…

                                • Block image loading in the spam folder + whitelist emails for showing images

                                  The short version:

                                  1) Images in the spam folder should be separate from the global setting to show images in email and NEVER show them automatically
                                  2) If images are set to never load by default, copy the Windows Outlook feature where a user can build a one-by-one whitelist of emails to load images on without the user cluttering up their address book.

                                  The long version: Outlook 2016 for OS X has this terrible, terrible feature when it comes to images. I'm accustomed to Outlook on Windows, where you can globally block all images from loading in an email, globally…

                                      During the last update, the Copy/Cut and Paste within Outlook stopped working. When I paste (both using CMD + V, and using the menus), nothing happens. I can paste in Word and other programs without issue.

                                      • Make the Autosave drop down optional

                                        The autosave dropdown is very distracting - please add a way to disable this

                                        • Improve Recurrence or Repeat feature to include recur or repeat after last complete.

                                          I remember in previous versions for Windows you could setup a repeating task to repeat or recur from the date you completed it and skip all the days missed in between the date it was due and the date you completed it.

                                          So if a task was due on a specific day, and it is supposed to repeat everyday, but you missed a few days, you won't have to click complete for the days missed until the current day. It would recur after the last date completed.

                                          Just as an example (maybe not a good one but...) if you had…
