  1. Customizable quick action icons hovering over messages

    I want to be able to customize my quick action icons that appear when I hover over my messages. It's so easy to accidentally delete or archive a message when trying to mark it as important.

  2. I suggest you add CalDav support to Outlook for Mac.

    Corporate mail server is CalDave - whether we like it or not. Want to integrate in Outlook rather than using iCal!

  5. add THE MOST BASIC FUNCTION OF EXPORTING CONTACTS AS CSV

    How have you guys not added the functionality to export Mac Outlook contacts to CSV, this has been requested for years and is function in the Windows version. What is GOING ON with your DEV TEAM? unless this is business politics, the lack of this feature is embarassing

  8. Allow editing of calendar invitation titles from other people

    Previously, when receiving a calendar invite, I could rename the invite so that it was easy for me to quickly see what client was involved with the meeting. Now I am unable to edit the titles, and all of my meetings have similar titles (like GoToMeeting) requiring me to individually click into every calendar invite to see what the real subject of the meeting is.

    When contacting support I was told the ability to change calendar invite titles was marked as a "bug" by developers and removed intentionally, but it's made my life miserable to have to constantly open every…

  14. Make rules a lot more flexible

    Improve rule syntax with AND and OR operations, wildcards for more general matching, and tiered approach for rule application.

    Outlook search for Mac is inconsistent and I constantly have to run the Outlook Search repair tool which has since broken from the last fast ring build.

  18. Ability to permanently disable MS Add-Ins to Oulook for Mac

    Not everyone uses or wants to use OneNote or Customer Manager, and if you’re not using these applications, these buttons take up valuable space in the ribbon, hiding other more useful buttons - e.g. Read/Unread. I appreciate this issue is linked to screen size, and is therefore probably not an option on larger laptops or desktops screens, but it is a significant issue on smaller laptop screens.

    When I raised this with MS Support, I got the following response: "we are able to reproduce it on our end and we have a confirmation that this is expected behaviour for OneNote…

  20. Notification Rules/Alerts for Sub Folders.

    It is important to set different notification rules for subfolders to manage the mails efficiently.

    We see the badges, the number of mail received in the subfolder, but doesn’t notify us that a new email arrived.

    There should be an option in the rules whether we want desktop alert or notification for emails that come into that particular subfolder.
