  1. I would like to join pictures in attached files,

    I would like to join photos in a easiest way that it exist on a mac . Photos are located in an application named "photos" . It's very easy if you use mail application to extract and join it in a mail then to maximize and minimize the size . If you could develop an easier way to paste photos with outlook in a professional way and quickly change the sizes of the photos , it would be magic !!! .
    Today no choice to copy paste pictures on word and change it , then copy to outlook.

          • Clutter

            Clutter works great in the Windows version of Outlook (and in the iOS Outlook app), but does not divert as many messages to the Clutter folder in Mac Outlook 2016. I need to triage my emails on my phone before opening Outlook on my Mac because the iOS Outlook app sorts Clutter much more effectively.

            • Improve user control over which attachments get synchronized to the local drive.

              With Outlook for Mac implementing Sandboxing it is becoming very difficult to manage a large Inbox within the confines of entry level SSD sizes on MacBooks. At this moment, the user lacks any sort of control over the amount of data that gets synchronized to the local Profile Database.

              Suggestions:
              a) Allow the user to completely disable attachment download - attachments would only be downloaded when a user explicitly opens an attachment.
              b) Allow the user to disable attachment downloads per folder - this would help with people that use folders to manage older messages.
              c) Allow the user to…

                • I wanted to archive a single IMAP folder not all the email accounts I manage through Outlook.

                  This was something that I could do with my Outlook 2010 for Windows Outlook.

                    • Make it possible to apply View / Columns choices across all folders

                      I have many, many folders and subfolders, and no use in any folder for several of the default columns that eat up valuable screen real estate. Currently I must configure each folder, column by column. To make it worse, each time I reinstall my email account I have to do it all over again. The process is extremely time consuming.

                      • Smaller updates

                        Smaller updates. Updates are almost 1GB. There has to be a way to makes the downloads smaller. With all the other Office apps this is unbearable. Almost 5 GB to update the whole Office suite.

                        • Allow Outlook.com people to Sync with Outlook for Mac

                          I added an iMac to my network and thought I could sync my Outlook.com people with my iMac as they sync with my other iOS devices but for some reason they don't: the People tab in Outlook for Mac 2016 remains empty even after emails have been synched with Outlook.com. I'm not sure whether this is a user error, a bug or a feature but it is confusing that I can't make it work and that the same idea is declared as "implemented" or "declined" in this forum. I'm looking for support - thank you.

                            here is a winner - sending e-mail in OL & u forget to include attachment - have pop up if you use 'see attached' in body of email to remind you to attach - kind of like depositing a check w your bank - if the check amount is different than the amount you entered to deposit - you get a pop up - this one is good!

                              The reading pane disappears and won't default to it anymore when I change folders. Happened on my Mac and on someone else's Window's machine. Must have been an update that ruined it.

                                  • Add an option to turn off showing photo of sender/recipient in email

                                    Add an option that can turn off showing the photo of the sender/recipient, which gives more space when viewing emails with reading panel down. The photo, especially only showing initials, is useless and wasting space. For people who like to see the photo, they can turn it on; because when viewing panel on right, it is not a problem.

                                      • Make it easier to scroll down through inbox - it used to be much easier

                                        Make it easier to scroll down the inbox, rather than jumping down. and frequently the scroll down bar just disappears.

                                        • I wish I could do searches for e-mails like I can in the windows version

                                          Let me right click on an e-mail and do a find all e-mails associated with the one I right clicked on.
