  1. Placing of Sent messages back in the same folder they are sent from.

    As with the Windows version, why is it not possible to select what you like to do with sent messages?

    I like to to have a thread for all my messages that were sorted in their respective folders. So, when I send a message that I am e.g. forwarding or replying to, should once sent remain in the same folder.

    Responses from those sent messages will obviously land back up in the usual Inbox, but that is okay, because the Inbox is necessary to deal with new mails arriving, and should not be filled with e-mails that have been dealt…

    • Ability to import and export calendars

      Please add the ability to import and export calendars in Outlook for Mac. It'd be great if the formats that one could import and export contacts to were the same as the options on Outlook on Windows. This would make it easy to transition back and forth, particularly for folks who are switching platforms for work.

        • Provide Touch Bar customisation.

          Outlook build 170304 adds touch bar support for new MacBook Pros - but the location of SEND right next to ESC is dangerous. Please allow us to customise the touch bar (as you can for Apple Mail and other Apple apps) so that it can be removed or moved to a safer place. I'm fed up sending half-finished mails when my finger accidentally brushes the touch bar.

            • Unhide show_in_navigation_pane column in Edit_Categories dialogue -- make category_name column width 50 percent

              Problem = show_in_navigation_pane column in Edit_Categories dialogue is not visible

              column widths for category_name is too wide. This moves show_in_navigation_pane too far to right.

              No right-left scroll tool available to see additional column in Edit_Categories dialogue for Mac Outlook

              The default column widths for the Preferences > Edit_Categories has the default width of the category_name column set to be approximately 100 percent of the width of the dialogue category selector.

              Because there is no horizontal slider as there would be in the Windows version of the category_edit dialogue, the three columns the default width of the category_name column being defaulted…

              • Urgent fix required for Outlook for Mac (16.13 +)

                Test case: start Apple Mail and MS Outlook in parallel, go to any INBOX subfolder in Apple Mail (Exchange account), change status of any mail item to "unread", verify in MS Outlook the status -> currently no change will happen for email status in MS Outlook in case I’m connected to a restricted or tethered network. If I try the sequence in this order: change status of an email in MS Outlook subfolder and check later in Apple Mail -> independent from type of network the status change will become visible. This occurs since version 16.13 -> please fix it…

                    • Luxembourgish Language Support

                      It would be great if I could set the spellchecker in Outlook to my native language, Luxembourgish. The language pack is already available for the Windows version of Outlook, so I am very hopeful that it will be added to the Mac version at some point. Right now, it wrongly identifies the language as French (due to the Swiss French keyboard layout that we use in Luxembourg), and it keeps correcting words that have been spelled correctly in Luxembourgish. Since I frequently write emails in multiple languages, disabling the spellchecker entirely is not really an option. Thank you for taking…

                      • New Rest API and built in iOS Calendar app

                        Just got new calendar API features enabled on my account/outlook from Mac. Every time I “open shared calendar” on my Mac it then adds the calendar to the iOS default calendar app. If I delete it off my phone that then deletes the calendar from the outlook app. Seemingly no way to stop it from happening.

                        If I am a new user and I add 50 peoples calendar to my outlook I am then going to see those on my phone. Eventually that is going to cause storage issues and a host of other unintended consequences on my device. For…

                        • CryptoTokenKit (CTK) support for digital signing and encryption.

                          Apple has began depreciating older token.d frameworks for CryptoTokenKit with the release of macOS Mojave. At present, Outlook can see the certificates. However after you select them, the changes do not save and returning back to the accounts page shows the digital signing, encryption, and authentication back to "none selected"

                                  • BIG ISSUE FOUND The Reading panel keeps showing the email already dragged into a folder but the selected email is the one which was below

                                    If you drag an email from inbox into a certain folder the panel view keeps showing you the email you dragged already but the one which appears selected is the email which was below.
                                    This brings you into a confusion because you think you are reading the email selected and in addition if you click in the selected email the reading panel keeps showing you the email you dragged into the other folder.
                                    The only way to solve this issue at the moment is selecting any other email of the inbox and then selecting again the email which was below…

                                          Fix many issues with latest update:
                                          - Search gets corrupted, need to uninstall, re-install account to force re-indexing
                                          - When transferring, FROM and TO have disappeared
                                          - When hitting a key to search alphabetically in the email list, nothing happens
                                          - Recommend a Dark Mode Switch; not taking for granted that I want Outlook in Dark Mode because my session is
