  2. Don't put the delete email button next to the close window button

    The delete mail button is next to the close email button on outlook for Mac app. It makes it really easy for people to accidentally delete the email they have open.

  3. Status bar in Search Folders

    The status bar in Search Folders used to show "Connected to.." etc information, however in 2016 it doesn't.

    Why isn't that status bar uniform across the client?

  5. Create links when replying and contacts are in my address book

    When replying, if contacts are present as cards in my address book, the header of the original message does not contain links, but just plain names.
    Example: if card is not in address book, I get in the original mail header:

    "mailto:person@domain.com"

    If this is saved in address book, I get in the original mail header:

    "Full Name"

  7. Time to leave

    Add "Time to Leave" as alert option for appointments.

    Using current location -> location of invite similar to how the iPhone does it. We understand this may require upstream changes to Office 365 unless it currently supports it.

  9. Automatic setup of email accounts and general settings via configuration profile or script

    In large Enterprises, the ability to deploy and configure applications silently and automatically for users is a key requirement for managing large fleets of Macs. Having the ability to set defaults via script or configuration profile and configure a user's email account automatically through the use of an MDM/Management System is imperative.

  11. Creating new mail folders, default should be below inbox not in the inbox.

    When creating new folders, default should be below the inbox. Not in the inbox.
    "The Inbox syncs more frequently than any other and should be kept as clean as possible. (this is the number one cause of problems with sync). Do NOT make subfolders under the Inbox."

  13. Configuration via profile to disable 'on my computer'

    As IT, we don't want customers potentially losing mail server-side by moving it to a folder that only exists locally, so the ability to be able to disallow that pre-customer setup.
    Among lots of other things we should be able to do via configuration profile when it comes to setting 'friendly defaults', signatures, etc.

  14. 'Show reply' button intermittently appears at all, disappears

    Sometimes and for a certain period, there is a button to 'Show reply' on a message in your inbox that you've replied to. Then it disappears, and infrequently are you able to follow the 'conversation' button above the subject. 'Show reply' should be consistent
