  1. Outlook for Mac doesn’t autocomplete email addresses

    Outlook for Mac doesn’t autocomplete email addresses unless they are in the contacts. This is different behavior from Outlook for PC (which remembers addresses you’ve entered even if not in contacts.) Very confusing for users coming from Windows version who use this feature every day without a second thought.

  4. see all attachments from a contact

    It would be great to have an attachment treatment in outlook like unibox has. I'd like to scroll through all attachments or from a certain contact or from several contacts.

  10. Remove individuals from Group emails

    Please add the ability to send a Group email to all, yet deselect certain individuals from it. This would be really useful if you wanted to send an all company email but remove, say, the birthday boy whose surprise party you are trying to organise. Currently you have to add everyone else by hand.

  13. Adding people to meetings from scheduling assistant

    The flow for adding people to a meeting always feels way more complicated than it needs to be. In the scheduling assistant, I click on the "+ Add New" button in the left side which gives me a search box. Double clicking on the name from there should just drop them into the invite, not open their contact card. The buttons on the bottom blend too much into the chrome to feel like it's part of the same surface...so making them feel like part of the flow would be helpful.

    Better yet, just word wheel in the list of the…

  14. Improve resolution of contact photos.

    The resolution of the contact photos is very low. It's hard to decipher what people actually look like.

  15. turn off autocorrect does not work.

    turn off autocorrect should actually turn off autocorrect.

    I have autocorrect off in Preferences

    Whenever I type some odd acronym in a mail compose it still replaces it.

    In a software/tech/dev environment where many odd words and acronyms are used regularly this means outlook is essentially unusable.

    OR give me a way to hook up external text editor.

    OR tell me how to find the "real" "turn off autocorrect"

    Thanks.

  18. Add applying the existing format like windows for outlook on mac while writing new emails

    There is an option on windows outlook where you can apply the existing format to new text or remove the formatting of text by selecting that text while writing mails. It's very useful feature for practical purposes. Please bring it on Mac as well.

  19. Mail being written stays on top of Outlook window

    When you want to add the attachment of a given mail (or copy a part of the text) to a new message first you start to write the new message then search for the mail to extract (drag and drop) the attachment (copy text) from but in the meanwhile the new message goes into the background. So when you are ready to drag and drop you have to right click on Outlooks icon and make the new message visible again to paste. This is very annoying I suggest to keep the new message as an active window top of the…

  20. Another person who would like to consolidate an Exchange mail and Google email in one location!. I

    I run a small business with myself and my wife. My wife is also a school teacher who uses Goggle Apps at school. I appears that I cannot combine her email in Outlook. I was rebuilding her Mac and can easily add her account to Outlook, but I keep getting errors that I have security issues adding her Google account to Outlook. I can view each in their respective programs, but I'd like to be able to merge these to read on all her devices.
