  1. Show consistent format when displaying total appointment time

    When you click a calendar appointment in Outlook, it displays a popup showing some basic details of the calendar appointment, one of which is the total time for that appointment.

    When the total time for an appointment is whole hours or half hours, it shows the total time in hours and decimals of an hour, e.g. 1.5hrs, 2hrs, 2.5hrs etc.

    However, if the total time of the appointment is 15mins beyond a whole hour or 15 mins before a whole hour, Outlook displays the total appointment time as the total number of minutes, not as hours and decimals of an…

  3. Outlook 365 (Mac) give more options to designate when new email arrives

    Currently (5/18/17) there is no option for a quick visual for when you have new mail. Often mail arrives when I'm away from my desk forcing me to manually check my every time I get back to my desk. I have tried all the options and they all disappear after a few seconds. For me the little red dot with the count is useless. Since some people prefer that why not offer the option for the count or an envelope icon. Another option would be to make the bouncy icon feature a continual bounce until you open your email or…

  4. AutoBCC

    How do you not have AutoBCC? This is a huge issue for my small business to connect back to our CRM. Going to be switching to google because you gave no other choice.

  6. Add time delay to rules sorting mail into specific folders

    Add a function to the rule creation feature that gives us the ability to move specified items of mail from the inbox to specified folders after a specified period of time.

    I want to have a period of time when I can see some pieces of incoming mail in my inbox, and after that time have it automatically filed. If I have some items sorted straight into another folder, I may miss action that is required.

  7. Fix archive folder bug

    A recent update to Outlook added a new 'Archive1' folder in addition to the older 'Archive' folder. On Outlook for Mac, archived email would go to 'Archive1' while every other email client (such as mail on iOS) would go to 'Archive'. Deleting or renaming 'Archive1' mailbox was impossible via anything other than Outlook for Windows.

    I raised this as a bug but was told it was intentional behaviour.

    Given that is the case, please implement this 'feature' to bring Outlook for Mac into parity with that for Windows.

    While you are at it, please stop Outlook for Mac creating additional…

  10. Allow users to preset default for Send Now

    Love the new send later option, but it is kind of amusingly preset to now. For me I use the feature to avoid sending weekend emails and would love to preset it for Monday morning. Would love to be able to preset the Send Now accordingly rather than have to adjust every time I send an email.

  13. Encoding block list support for Junk Mail Filtering

    enable the use of the Blocked Encoding List for Junk Mail same as in Windows Outlook. This will make it much easier to stop the spam received using a foreign language like Chinese.

  14. Repeating calendar events and work days.

    Repeating calendar events and work days. With the online version (possibly the desktop as well), when specifying a repeating event for "every workday" it repeats an event across the same workdays listed under the personalization settings.

    However, it adds a little extra bit of "Microsoft Magic" too. If your workdays are Monday through Friday and you adopt this under personalization settings to support only seeing your repeating workday events M-F and NOT Sat/Sun, after you save, it (go figure?) only shows you M-F, which kind of blows if you're in an industry where weekend work pops up all the time.

  16. Quick access to Inboxes

    With this latest version of Outlook (fast insider), you took away the easy access to all Inboxes. I now have to scroll down to get to my IMAP account inbox. And, no, All Accounts is not the same, as I don't want to look at my accounts mixed up.

  17. Add the option of displaying "To" and "CC" labels

    With lots of email lists/subscriptions, it's helpful to easily identify mail that is sent directly To or where the receiver is CC'd -- so adding a label in the list view would help with quickly scanning the inbox for the most relevant email.

  18. Yellow highlights back in and notification for flagged emails

    Would you please add the yellow highlights on messages for flagged emails back in? It's really hard to distinguish with only the red flags. Also, when will the notification feature for flagged messages be supported for Macs?

  19. conversartion

    Add "show emails from all folders" in Conversations view. This will allow to quickly view all emails related to a conversation even if they are not located in the current folder. This will align the view to Windows Outlook, and particularly will eliminate the need to click multiple times in reading pane to find the related conversation's emails that are not located in the current folder.
