  1. Add highlighting capability to items that are marked for follow-up.

    In the previous versions of Outlook for Mac, items that were marked for follow-up had the background of the summary in yellow. This is gone in Version 15.27(160906). Please put it back or at least make it an option.

  4. Always include full email history in replies

    When I'm reading an email I always use the mouse to select the parts that I've read. When I want to reply to the email I hit the reply button and it includes ONLY the part that I've selected. This is never what I want. I end up having to close that reply, then unselect from the original, and hit Reply again.

    I'm sure it seemed like a good idea, but it really messes with some people's workflow, so even if you could make it a configuration option that would be great.

    Thanks!

  6. I suggest you to put the option of setting a specific number of days when the messages will be deleted from server.

    In the account settings of Outlook 2013 was an option to delete the messages from server after a specific number of days. In Outlook for Mac you can set only one day/week/year or after deleting from computer. Would be great to have the possibility for example to delete automatically all messages which are older than 100 days.

  8. Junk folder name conflict

    Junk mail folder called 'Junk Email' on Outlook for Mac (v15.26.1), but called 'Junk' on web browser version causing a synchronisation issue with the follow error message being received:

    "One or more folders in your mailbox have name conflicts with others or system reserved names.

    Folders with these names can't be downloaded by your IMAP e-mail program.

    Junk

    Please connect to your mailbox using your Web browser and rename those folders. Once renamed, those folders will be displayed in your IMAP e-mail application correctly."

  13. Make Office AutoUpdate great again!

    Please, Make MS Office Auto Update for MacOS less annoying. Let it check for updates in background without windows, and have an option to auto download updates. And tell us about the updates right there, without link following and reading those lengthy web-pages about all possible Office updates.

  14. Jump to mailbox feature

    Outlook should have a "jump to mailbox" feature. Like filing email, but instead "take me mailbox X"
