  2. Confirm send alert toggle when using Cmd + Ret shortcut (like Windows has)

    As on Windows when using the Send Shortcut - an option somewhere to select whether or not to display a message to confirm before sending.

    Some users will still turn it off and that's fine but some of us find it handy as a reminder - sometimes that shortcut can become very automatic :)

  5. When clicking 'Send to OneNote' button, bring up the notebooks in the same account as you used to sign in to OneNote

    A recent release of Office removed functionality that was present in previous versions, and I would like to see that functionality reinstated please.
    When clicking the 'Send to OneNote' button in Mail, Outlook now brings up the list of Notebooks that are in the same account as the message which you have currently got selected. Until a month or so ago it used to bring up the list of notebooks that were in the account that you had used to sign in to OneNote. The Windows version has not had this functionality removed by the way.

  6. Remove Sender from Reply-All to a Group the Sender belongs to

    When replying-all to an email where the To or CC contains a group that you belong to, you received the email as well. There should be a (preferably server/account-side) option to automatically filter the individual from the email sent, as they are the ones who sent it.

  7. allow differant colours to be used for mail subfolders, so that we can identify all the sub/sub folders in the subfolder root

    allow differant colours to be used for mail subfolders, so that we can identify all the sub/sub folders in the subfolder root.
    I run two companies, etc with a root folder and multiple subfolders to each root (parent) such as Finance, Admin, production, Sales, etc (wih sub/sub folders of each sub folder: such as in accounts; costings, banks, finance etc). What i woudl like is for the folders of each company (root folder, subfolders and sub/sub folder) to be in different colours - so they can be easier identofed for filling emails from inbox/sengt into these folders

  9. Create new follow up meeting

    Once a meeting is complete and a goal has not been achieved, people have a habit of moving a meeting to a new time slot instead of creating a new follow up meeting losing all history of the previous meetings.

    A quick click "Create follow up meeting" would make keeping history of meetings in place and quickly find the right time slot to follow up.

  10. Shard Task Outlook for Mac (365)

    I suggest enabling shared tasked in outlook for Mac. I do not understand why outlook is not uniform between the PC and Mac platforms.

  12. View full email addresses in To line of email

    When composing a message when I add people to the To: or CC: lines they show up as "friendly" names. I can't find any way to view the explicit email address that this will go to. This causes multiple frustrations and misdirected emails, as some mailing lists show up as people's names and some people have multiple email addresses that I want to be able to choose between.

  15. when you forward an email it would ask if you want to include the original people included as this allows you to include attachments.

    when you are sent an email with an attached you often want to respond with document attached to those mentioned in the email, instead of having to forward and then add the recipients again.

  16. Please add the account information on drag/drop copy from IMAP view to local folder

    There are several suggestion about drag/drop functionality. Mine is simply to include the "account" information (account name) when you drag/drop an email from an IMAP view to a local folder, so the local copy has the account info as to which account the email belongs to. Currently it is just blank on the copied message.

  17. Enable the ability to "Do Not Forward" to model Windows version.

    Windows currently has this functionality where you can make an email where it cannot be forwarded. On Mac it cannot. Reccomend this to model the Windows Version.

  19. Make the ribbon editable. When adding a new add on, the Ribbon squishes commands into a drop down menu, and it becomes clunky.

    The ribbon needs to be editable so that common commands don't get pushed into sub menus.

  20. Add the Flag for Recipients option into the Outlook for Mac

    It would be great if Outlook for Mac would have the Flag for Recipients option to set reminder for recipients like Outlook for Windows does by selecting Message > Tags > Follow Up > Custom > Flag for Recipients on the new message.
    Outlook for Mac has the Flag for Me option but it does not have the Flag for Recipients option.
