  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  6. 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.

  8. 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.

  10. Complete List View of Calendar Items

    In Windows version it is possible to see the complete list of calendar items in list view. In Mac version, this list view is only available by day, week, or month. Complete list of calendar items is useful to see recurrent items, clean old or future items, sort, filter, etc.

  12. Add more keyboard shortcuts - create new appointment

    Something I miss from Windows Outlook now that I am on Mac is a quick way to create an appointment. Control-Shift-A did it wonderfully on Windows. On Mac, first I have to switch to the calendar mode and then I can create a new item and then switch back to previous mode. So, I can do it with Cmd-2 + Cmd-N <enter appt data> and Cmd-1. That is bulky and slow switching modes.

  13. Notify to read/open attachment

    When there is an attachment with an email,
    - emphasise that there is an attachment with colors
    - Alert or Notify readers if they close the email without opening the attachment
    - Priorities to attachments, similar to email priorities

    This could avoid:
    - Writing "Please find the attachment...!!!" in every email with attachment
    - Missing out important attachments without opening it

  15. To set the cursor focus to the first line when redacting or answering messages on Outlook.

    To set the cursor focus to the first line when redacting or answering messages on Outlook. Right now, the cursor starts kind of "inside" the signature, instead of the first line of message.

  16. change sender (to noreply...)

    Would be nice to be able to mark emails sent as no-reply to force customers not to reply to this email directly.

  17. Improve support for plain text email

    If I reply to a plain-text message, the reply should display any included text prefixed by "> " and in a fixed-width font. Ideally, the prefix and the font should be customizable.

  19. Outgoing email

    Allow to interrupt an email from going out and edit it. There's no outgoing box like the previous version Outlook 2010 for mac.
    Please bring this back.

    Thanks.
