  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  5. 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,…

  6. 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!

  8. 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.

  9. 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.

  10. 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.

  11. stop trying to verify my subscription on startup

    I have paid in advance for one year. So why does Microsoft need to verify my subscription every time I start up outlook from a fresh reboot? If I am offline, I get a pop-up explaining that outlook could not verify my subscription. one of the options is 'remind me later, in which everything continues to work anyway. What is the point in this rubbish message? Get rid of it!

  12. Additional line for addresses should appear in the contact card

    When entering someones address you should allow for a second and third line for things like a suite, apartment or office (the same way you do in Outlook for Windows).

  15. Drag and drop emails into different catagories

    The ability to change the category by dragging and dropping a mail into a new category group (when the mail list is grouped by Categories), rather than having to go to edit category (for each mail) then remove the existing category and then add the new category.

  19. Stop the autosave notification when typing an email. It pops up way too often.

    Stop the autosave notification that pops up while composing an email. I like the autosave feature - its just doesn't need to tell me about it every 15 seconds.

  20. Contact Adjustments

    In contacts, be able to see when you last contacted that person. And be able to quick edit contacts in the list view without having to open the whole card. Rename the sections that underline contacts.
