  1. allow disable/delete of recent locations for appointments

    The list of saved locations should be editable. I can't delete locations, or turn off the option to save them. It is extremely annoying and the choice to disable this option should be provided

  2. I suggest you to change view of accounts and its folders

    Hello. A new view of the account and its folders is very, very uncomfortable. I talked with support and they recommended to contact you. I suggest returning the old look without INBOX

  3. Allow to see delegated inbox sent items

    Make sure that you can see the sent items from a inbox that you are delegate for. Now you can only see the sent items in your own mailbox.

  4. Solve the problem with the .dat file

    Solve the problem with the .dat file, translating automatically the .dat into an readable e-mail format. Lot of times I receive some mails from Windows Users that I can't read as it was written, because some images doesn't come in the body of the e-mail, but inside a .dat file, massing up the original mail format.

  7. Enable "look up" feature in Outlook for Mac email composer

    The "look up" feature when writing emails. So, the handy tool to highlight a word or phrase, right click, select "look-up" and then receive definitions for the selection in a pop-up. I love it! As a non-native english speaking person I make frequent use of this feature to check the meanings of words as I type along. This is available when READING emails in Outlook for Mac but for some reason not for composing emails. Thanks.

  8. Count the Number of Message in a Thread

    When you have a lot of email for read, will be great to know how many message a thread has, because if it has many, probably this message should be important.

  9. Fix numbers and bullets!

    Create a dropdown for LISTS - select overall style, type of number, bullet, other, select colors, select indents, select other alphanumeric features. And allow to be set as a LIST template. Currently, creating complex, navigable lists is the bane of our lives!

  10. Give back the NEW MAIL feature at account header. Hate I have to open the entire account just to see the inbox

    Not hard. just give a quick glance notice ad the account header that you have (X) new messages in your inbox instead of only showing this in the inbox header. Hate that I now have to expand each account whcih has 13 sub categories in each account just to view the (X) by the inbox.

  13. Update all the remaining internal icons to be retina

    Many of the the icons in the Preferences sub-catagories have yet to be updated to Retina. They're looking pretty blurry at the moment.

  14. have date received as the actual date and time that it was received instead of date and time sent.

    This is a huge problem. I received an email on Saturday that was sent on Wednesday. Instead of showing up on Saturday, it was in the Wednesday emails. Had I not been looking for it, I would have never noticed it.

  15. change the order of how folders are presented when want to move or copy an email to another folder

    It used to be, when you selected move or copy the email, then started typing the folder name, the folders were displayed as you typed were displayed in order of the the most recently accessed, not alphabetical order. I could start typing, matches would pop up, and almost always the first one was the one I wanted because it was often used, so I could just hit enter. Now, they come up in alphabetical order, and I almost always have to physically select the one folder I want first. This is annoying. At the least, please provide an option to…

  18. file names

    Hi, I think many people edit and send files back and forth with a new file name that reflects a new version of the document. It would be nice to see the full file name in the email so a person can quickly determine the version of the document. many thanks.
