  1. Keep calendar attachments visible in the calendar entry (they disappear shortly after opening).

    Once an invitation has been acepted, any attachments in the calendar entry are only visible until Outlook has determined that the invitation was accepted. It looks like this is a bug where the acceptance date/time message is blocking out the attachment line.

  4. Add the Unread counter to the group listing if grouped by sender.

    I organize my e-mail by who I received it from. This helps me to prioritize when to address each issue and organize my archive. In Outlook 2011 there would be an 'Unread' counter on the right hand side to let me quickly glance and see if there were any new messages and from whom. I would like to see this added back in.

  7. Support for associating an outlook folder with a URL

    Support for associating an outlook folder with a URL

    as described in: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/287587.

    This is used by a number of enterprise products, such as Symantec Enterprise Vault (email archive management), and helps Outlook:Mac fit in better with enterprise workflows.

    thanks!

    About the reminders that appear: while using a Macbook it would be much more usable if the snooze button responded to the touch, rather than requiring a click, hold and drag to select the delay. When you start to scroll to the desired 'Until x' option you often select the wrong thing because you let up on the trackpad and it chooses it for you.

  11. To remove hyperlinks from email messages.

    Have a remove hyperlink function that works. Currently if you create an email, paste a hyperlink, select the link, and then Hyperlink>remove link. It only removes it visually, once the email is sent the recipient receives the hyperlink in HTML format that is clickable.

  12. Everytime

    Every time I open a new e-mail, reply or forward a notice comes up twice saying:

    "Some of the files in this Web page aren't in the expected location. Do you want to download them anyway? If you're sure the Web page is from a trusted source, click Yes." *Options* "No, Cancel, Yes"

    I've tried all options and it still pops up every time.

    Any help would be much appreciated.

  13. Auto configure Outlook for Domain joined Macs

    Outlook should have the ability to detect at first launch if the user is a Domain user and use the Active Directory information to auto configure the account for first use. This is how it has worked on Windows for ever - and actually how the original Outlook for Mac 2001 worked.

  15. Add a recover last open emails feature to Outlook Mail.

    Add a recover open emails feature. If I have a shutdown, I can recover my last opened tabs with "History/Recover all windows from last session" . I would love the same thing for Outlook Mail. I frequently stack emails on my desktop that I need to deal with during my workday. If I have a crash, Outlook reopens but without the last opened emails from my desktop.

  16. Outbox Support for Offline Mail

    Currently when formulating emails and clicking "Send" while not connected to Exchange, emails are redirected to the "Drafts" folder without any kind of notification. Emails should be saved in the outbox and automatically sent upon connection to Exchange.

  17. Why the Exchange server access is not supported any more since the April Update Office 2016 for Mac 15.21.1!

    Since 1998 I have been used an Business version for Mac. The main argument was the use of the exchange server. The version of 2011 lost this capability already in end of 2013. From 2014 I used then on recommendation of Microsoft Office 365 for Mac. Since the last update no access to my companies exchange server is possible. The installation of toehold version doesn't help either! Because the the older version can not open the user date base. Has Microsoft lost its capability to develop a proper software? Otherwise I have to switch to another office software what is…

  20. Ability to Disable Dock Notification Envelope

    I disabled all notifications and unchecked “Badge app icon”, but the outlook icon still changes to show new email.

    This is a defect (NOT an enhancement) violates Apple’s rules about notifications.

    What is the plan to resolve this defect?
