  1. Version 15.38 (170822) - get rid of the blue "selected" box around the icons in lower left corner.

    Version 15.38 (170822) - get rid of the blue "selected" box around the icons in lower left corner. The highlighted icon color change is sufficient.

  3. All the ability to attach emails to another email from the Search results.

    There are times I need to share email with another person in my organization. I search for the appropriate email, but then I'm unable to drag and drop it into the email I'm composing.

    In fact, the only way I can do that is by finding the original email in the folder it's stored in and copy it then. Except I can't even determine what FOLDER it's located in.

    I saw someone else file this idea and it was declined, with the message to contact support. However, this is NOT a support issue. Outlook simply does not support this functionality.

  6. Add 'Search' to the the Touchbar options, that focusses the keyboard to the search text box

    The most common action I use that is not supported by the Touch Bar is searching. I select the search text box at least 20 times a day, so having this at my finger tips would be very useful.

  8. Improved performance when open for an extended period

    I've been running Outlook on a MacBook Pro 2016 13" and I've noticed that when I have Outlook open for an extended period of time, days, it starts to be slow to respond when switching windows. For instance, clicking send on a new email will pause for a moment before going away. When the app is fresh, the response is immediate. I rarely shutdown my Mac, and I frequently sleep it by closing the lid. If I close Outlook and reopen it immediately, the responsiveness returns to what I would expect. It feels like something is caching and slowing the…

  11. Fix bug that downloads duplicate emails for POP accounts

    I just "upgraded" from Mac Outlook 2011 to Outlook 16 v15.37 and now every incoming message appears twice. This is a deal-breaker, I'm going back to 2011 until this is fixed.

  13. Search only into the Focussed Inbox

    When searching allow to search only into the focussed inbox. When selecting the unreads 90% are not not on the focussed inbox and make you lose your time.

  14. Contacts

    I was wondering if a second ‘mobile’ option in Outlook Contacts could be added ‘work mobile’ as nowadays, most people have a personal mobile and a work mobile.

  15. Add an option to block all embedded file types from being automatically displayed in emails.

    Please provide an option to only display embedded images after the user has decided they want to see the embedded files and clicks on an option button - similar to the way downloadable images are currently being handled. When I am trying to clean out my SPAM folders and I click on an email to delete it, the embedded images get automatically displayed. This is a security problem because many spammers use embedded images/pdf/compressed files to send viruses/trojans.

  16. Right-click on attachments

    The new UI for presenting attachments to emails and events (as of v15.35) removed the long-standing ability to right-click on an attachment to perform various actions on it, e.g. save, remove, etc.

    Instead of you are forcing us to perform those actions only by way of a dropdown menu on each attachment. This dropdown as a tiny click target (hortizontally speaking) compared to the old UI and our ability to land the cursor anywhere on the attachment name/icon and right-click.

    Please re-enable right-click functionality across the whole attachment name/icon so we don't have to search for a pin head in…

  18. Allow the rules dialog box to expand in size.

    Allow the rules dialog box to expand in size. If you have more than a few rules it's very difficult to manage them.

    This is especially true when the drag-and-drop feature for moving rules stops scrolling if you move it outside of a small pixel area. I have to assume that it's turning the rule into some object to be used outside of the window in some form of drag-and-drop.

    In any case, it's super hard to use the rules dialog box when you have 107+ rules. Right now the dialog can only display 13 of them at any one…

  19. allow for deleting incoming messages from popup notifications

    When I use Apple's Mail, when I get an alert it allows me to delete right when it comes in on the side. It would be nice, to have that feature as well

  20. outlook start view

    Please make it possible that I can see all incoming E-Mails - from all my accounts. Not only the e-Mails from the standard-account. Since one of the last updates these function is really not the best.
