  3. Add additional e-mail recipients to Calendar Response

    When using the "Respond with Comments" option to accept or decline a meeting, I am requesting the ability to add additional e-mail recipients to the response email. It is common to want to notify people other than the meeting organizer of the specific calendar response.

  4. add more formatting options

    In Outlook for windows, the formatting toolbar was incredible. I miss the ability to use the heading styles, organize lists alphabetically, rearrange text from all caps to sentence case etc.

  5. New time proposed: Link to adjust time in email

    When I receive a new time proposed for a calendar event I have to manually go find that calendar event to accept the new time proposed. This should be accessible through the email interface so I can accept or reject the new time proposed.

  6. Message > Move > Choose Folder > filter field should match any part of a folder name, not just beginning

    When I'm manually moving messages to a new folder (cmd shift M), the filter box only matches the beginning of folder names. So if I don't recall the name of the folder correctly, the filter does not help me find it. Often I will give a folder several "names" separated by spaces or commas. Example path/folder: [my user]/Support/Cases/Important,Priority1,Aging
    If I filter for "impor", it works. If I filter for "Case", it works. If I filter for "Agin"... nothing, because the beginning of the folder name is "Important" and the filter fails to match that. It should match any part of…

  10. Compact version of Outlook

    I think most people don't use 90% of outlook features - it would be nice to have a compact version. Maybe something along the lines of apple mail.

  11. Permit multiple windows for inbox, calendar and people simultaneously.

    I'd like to be able to have my calendar open as I survey the other Outlook windows.

  12. Remove delete and archive buttons

    The delete and archive buttons are inline with the message list. It is too easy to click them by accident when selecting a new message to view. I am often accidentally deleting my messages when I intended to read them. This is really frustrating. To delete a message, a user can simply either right click and select "delete" or press the delete button on the keyboard.

  13. Add the Format Text tab to the ribbon

    Add the Format Text tab to the ribbon like it is found on Windows when composing emails. This will allow standard styles to be more easily applied.

  15. Several identities like first outlook

    The versions of Outlook in classic, had a fantastic option: to create different profiles from user in the program, what allows to create groups of accounts (personal, work,…) without mixing post office among them.
    Use four accounts of mail, when creating rules to classify it in separated folders, I end up mixing messages of all of them if I do not have much taken care of when generating the rule.
    This diminishes when using profiles.
    At the moment, I am using different clients from mail with each group of accounts, to regenerate the organized mess.
    Another option that I consider,…

  16. Mass "Delete from server"/Leave on server" toggle please

    Please add the ability to Mass "Delete from server" and "Leave on server" so we don't have to hit this for each email separately. I use the "Delete from Server" feature as a control for using both iMap and POP3 on the same accounts so it's tedious to have to do this one by one on the POP3 account when I have it set to delete the emails from the server when I delete them in my POP3 account setup in Outlook. Would just save me headaches and time to say the least. Thanks!

  18. Please put back the "script" function to set email as a Task

    The "script" function in Outlook for Mac pre 15, allowed to set an email as a Task, so you can edit it and not just set a reminder. Can you put this back? Very useful.

  19. One Outlook regardless of OS platform

    End the tiresome attempt to make 2016 Outlook for Mac different than the 2016 Outlook for Windows. The vast majority of outlook users come from the windows PC environment and having to use Outlook on a Mac is too different and seems dumbed down. There wouldn't be so many posts from users requesting features that are common the Windows counterpart, if this wasn't the case. The two versions already look similar, so now let make them the same. So please, let there be One Outlook regardless of OS it's used on. Please.

  20. Add email thread manual connection

    Sometimes I am away from my computer and I used a browser to access my email. When I reply to an email its shown in my browser, but after downloading to Outlook for Mac this information is lost. I would like Outlook for Mac to allow me to manually connect all messages in a thread.
