  3. Add groups for email accounts. For example personal and Business, I hav esec=ven accounts in outlook 5 are personal and 2 are

    Add groups for email accounts. For example Client, Personal, Social and Business, I have seven accounts in outlook 4 are personal, 1 is a client and 2 are business, yet my inbox view shows all email from all accounts and I often delete emails as I am doing the normal morning spam delete. Also it would make finding and saving emails more efficient.

  4. Quit telling me I have to open/read the first unopened email on the list.

    If I leave an unopened email on the top of the list, whenever I try to open one further down it doesn't open and instead of seeing the email I get a message box that states I need to go to the first new email. QUIT IT I DON'T ALWAYS WANT TO READ THAT ONE FIRST! (yes caps was intentional!) This hinders me from opening and reading emails that I deem are more important, and what email to read first is MY decision NOT yours!

  6. Allow updates to be sent to emails in the same way as can be done for meetings

    Allow updates to be sent to emails in the same way as can be done for meetings. As an alternative to creating unnecessarily long email chains – introduce a feature where extra content can be added to mails previously sent and shown as such in the original mail along with it being remarked as unread.

  7. Re-add scripting functionality to set font type and size

    Since the new formatting changes in 15.22 there is no longer an ability to script the font type and/or size in Outlook. It was previously possible via Applescript. Can some similar functionality be added again? It would be helpful for those of us that need to conform to Style Guides

  8. flag folders with flagged messages

    Entourage had a feature which allowed you to easily find messages in mail subfolders that had been flagged. Any folder with a flagged message displayed a flag indicator. Lacking the more integrated "My Day" feature (like Windows) which has already been suggested, this would help keep attention on messages flagged for followup.

  9. sort

    The thing I miss most about Outlook for Windows is that when I search for a person's name, it sorts the emails by first in not last in. When I search for a name, I'm looking for an email from a person - and I need the current one, not an old one.

  10. Provide the A-Z options for positioning in contacts like the windows version has

    Outlook for Windows has the letters A-Z that you can click on to quickly navigate to your contacts. Provide this same ability in the Mac version.

  12. picture

    How is it possible to reduce the size of a picture?
    If you put a jpeg into Mac Mail you can say "small, middle, big or original size"

  13. Make the "Move" File/Folder more congruent like Apple Mail... the "Copy/Move" feature is the main thing holding me back form moving to Outlo

    Please make the "Move" File/Folder more congruent like Apple Mail, it just isn't dynamic for filing email... the "Copy/Move" feature is the main thing holding me back from moving to Outlook as my primary email client at work.

  16. Make it MUCH easier to add a vcf to an email to forward contacts to others.

    Make it MUCH easier to add a vcf/vCard to an email in order to forward contacts to a colleague. Now I have to individually find the contact, forward it, grab the attached vcf, and add it to my email of vcfs to my colleague. Really clumsy.

  18. WTF Microsoft you disabled the Zoom Plug-in in your latest update? I suggest you put that back in real quick.

    There is a plug-in for Zoom, that worked until you last update. Darn it, I look guys every other of your releases is **** in some way. Heard for QUALITY CONTROL? I guess NOT.
