  4. Option/rule for max. Message size restriction

    Offer a option/rule for a max. Message size restriction. e.g. > If message is greater than e.g. 20MB > block/stop sending and show warning.

    Background: These days some users trying to send/save big email attachments from their smartphone/SSD devices to the Exchange server. To avoid overloading we have already limited the outgoing message size on the Exchange Server. Although the email is blocked, it’s still possible to attach large files. We would like to go one step further to prevent performance issues both on server and client side. Although we teached them to use local file solution instead, some users…

  7. Would love to be able to override default ports for incoming and outcoming

    Right now it shows that you COULD check and uncheck overriding default ports, but when you close settings or try and save it, it reverts back to not being overriten... Which means I can't use any of my email addresses with Outlook. This could be a killer program if I could sign in with any email address!

  8. Highlight the whole cell for unread emails

    After the update, there is now only a blue dot and a blue date to indicate unread email. This makes quickly scanning your emails for unread messages a lot harder. I'd like to see the whole cell slightly coloured.

  9. highlight declined meetings in grid-view

    It would be very helpful if one could see in the Calendar Grid-View if any obligatory meeting participants declined . Currently I need to open each meeting individually.

  11. Add the ability to change the sender's name to correspond with the "send mail as" setting in Google.

    I would like to change the name that my email is sent from. My Google account is configured by my administrator with the first name “Robert”; however, I want my email messages to come from “Bob”. I can accomplish this in native Gmail by changing the “send mail as” setting under Settings > Accounts. Unfortunately, Outlook does not seem to pick up these settings, as messages sent from it show that they came from “Robert”, even after this field is changed to “Bob”.

    I have also tried changing the “Full name” field in the Outlook Accounts setting to “Bob”, but…

  14. Too much network traffic

    Every time i open outlook, about 160-200MB of network traffic are made. My suggestion:
    - split data file on chuck both server and client side
    - use MD5 to check if the chunk are the same (the file are the same if both MD5 are equal)
    - if the MD% are different then transfer the chunk of the data file.
    The solution is simple, fast and the network traffic will drop.

  16. Optional POP account display

    Optional POP accounts display

    In the new 15.33 issue of Outlook POP accounts are displayed above On my Computer.

    I suggest an option to return to the previous old display.

    Regards

  17. Please fix the error in the dictionary!

    I use Outlook for Mac and I have set the German as well as English user dictionary. If I want to write emails in English, word like „for the“ will be changed in „fort he“, although the speech recognition is turned on. An employee of the answer desk said that it is a mistake of the dictionary itself. Therefore, I ask you to correct this error.

  18. Spanish language recognition is no longer working in the new version!

    Spanish language detection no longer works in the new version; for other common languages it seems OK!

  20. Allow for batching e-mails at specified frequency based on sender

    This is based on research done by Dan Ariely, Professor of Psychology and Behavioral Economics at Duke University, that not all e-mail are created equal. The solution proposed involves the ability of batching e-mails at preset periods based on the sender to undo the damage of the high cost of interruption. Very compelling article http://danariely.com/2017/02/23/email-notifications/
