  4. Create a virtual Desktop

    Mail is too often lost in clutter. Beyond flagging, I would love to create a virtual desktop that I can drag emails that I don't want to lose track of, are linked to a specific project, etc.

  5. Better integration of microsoft excel and word in the body of emails

    It would be good if MS can work on integrating word and excel with outlook. Copy paste of table from excel and word is a difficult task to do right now.

  7. Add a vacation appointment that allows you to invite people as informational so that your boss can get your

    Add a vacation meeting type where you can have informational attendees who get the meeting as an all-day event showing free on their calendar while it shows out of office on yours. This would be very handy in informing people of your outages.

    There might be other use cases for the informational meeting type to inform that a meeting is occurring, but not remind or expect attendance.

  8. Automatic Reminders to buy Birthday or Anniversary Presents

    Outlook should allow for automatic reminders to buy birthday or anniversary presents based on the personal information entered in someone's contact. Currently you get a reminder the same day as the event which is not very helpful when you have to purchase a present for someone.

    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.

  13. 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!

  15. 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.

  16. 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.

  17. 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.

  18. 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.

  19. 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"

    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.
