  1. Optional POP account display

    Optional POP accounts display

    In the new 15.33 issue of Outlook POP accounts are displayed above On my Computer.

    I suggest an option to return to the previous old display.

  2. Please fix the error in the dictionary!

    I use Outlook for Mac and I have set the German as well as English user dictionary. If I want to write emails in English, word like „for the“ will be changed in „fort he“, although the speech recognition is turned on. An employee of the answer desk said that it is a mistake of the dictionary itself. Therefore, I ask you to correct this error.

  3. Spanish language recognition is no longer working in the new version!

    Spanish language detection no longer works in the new version; for other common languages it seems OK!

  5. Allow for batching e-mails at specified frequency based on sender

    This is based on research done by Dan Ariely, Professor of Psychology and Behavioral Economics at Duke University, that not all e-mail are created equal. The solution proposed involves the ability of batching e-mails at preset periods based on the sender to undo the damage of the high cost of interruption. Very compelling article http://danariely.com/2017/02/23/email-notifications/

  6. Add @address matching in the to/cc fields

    By adding @address matching in the to/cc fields, you can select multiple email addresses from people in the same company without having to remember each individual email address. For example, @companyname could pop up a list of matches from previous senders, receipients, and saved contacts.

  8. Select messages in "in place archive"

    When "in place archive" is enabled, within the Outlook app it is not possible to select multiple messages in folders which fall under the "in place archive". It is possible to select just one single message at the time.

  9. ALLOW the Font when forwarding to STAY THE SAME.

    In Pref setting, default fonts / composing/ forwarding: Have an option to Leave it as it is!! Why is there no alternative to imposing a new font size on the content being forwarded?

  13. Add highlighting capability to items that are marked for follow-up.

    In the previous versions of Outlook for Mac, items that were marked for follow-up had the background of the summary in yellow. This is gone in Version 15.27(160906). Please put it back or at least make it an option.

  16. Always include full email history in replies

    When I'm reading an email I always use the mouse to select the parts that I've read. When I want to reply to the email I hit the reply button and it includes ONLY the part that I've selected. This is never what I want. I end up having to close that reply, then unselect from the original, and hit Reply again.

    I'm sure it seemed like a good idea, but it really messes with some people's workflow, so even if you could make it a configuration option that would be great.

    Thanks!

  18. I suggest you to put the option of setting a specific number of days when the messages will be deleted from server.

    In the account settings of Outlook 2013 was an option to delete the messages from server after a specific number of days. In Outlook for Mac you can set only one day/week/year or after deleting from computer. Would be great to have the possibility for example to delete automatically all messages which are older than 100 days.

  20. Junk folder name conflict

    Junk mail folder called 'Junk Email' on Outlook for Mac (v15.26.1), but called 'Junk' on web browser version causing a synchronisation issue with the follow error message being received:

    "One or more folders in your mailbox have name conflicts with others or system reserved names.

    Folders with these names can't be downloaded by your IMAP e-mail program.

    Junk

    Please connect to your mailbox using your Web browser and rename those folders. Once renamed, those folders will be displayed in your IMAP e-mail application correctly."
