  5. The option to 'reply all' after I have selected simple 'reply'.

    Let me explain the use case: I do not 'reply all' by default. Hence, there are times that I hit 'reply' but when composing the message I come to realize that I need to send this to all original recipients. Then the option to have a 'replay all' button in the ribbon, when composing the reply would be really handy.
    Now, I need to close the window > click reply all > recompose (or paste) the initial message.
    This feature would add a better customer experience to oultook

  6. Invitations: Allow user changes to Reminder time and Show as status beyond Organizer updates

    Invitations: Allow user changes to Reminder time to persist beyond Organizer updates to the meeting. If the user prefers a 30 minute reminder, and the Organizer set a five minute reminder, WHO DO YOU THINK YOU'RE SERVING BY DELETING THE USER'S PREFERENCE IF THE ORGANIZER UPDATES THE EVENT? I would argue that you're not serving either.

  7. Have a setting in Preferences to have the "Microsoft Teams" button enabled by default in new Outlook calendar invitations.

    Now that our meetings are nearly 100% done through Teams (as opposed to meeting in a meeting room in the office), it would be so nice to have the option to set the "Microsoft Teams" button to be automatically turned on, by default. That way we don't have to remember to turn Teams on and keeps us from mistakenly sending out Calendar invites without having Teams enabled.

  8. Several remarks, in dutch.

    I was used to work with outlook for windows.
    Now I'm working with outlook on a Mac.

    Outlook opmerkingen.

    • Niet bij iedere verwijdering de vraag of je 't zeker weet.
    
    • Bij afsluiten mail prullenbak leegmaken.
    • Handiger op volgorde zetten en niet telkens opnieuw in categorieën indelen.
    • Agenda synchroniseren met MAC- agenda.
    • Verplaatsen van mails uit IMAP middels slepen, naar opslag op Mac kan niet. Is altijd kopiëren.
    • Antwoorden uit 'n map, graag de antwoordmail opslaan in diezelfde map.
    • Keuze om totaal aantal items in 'n map te laten zien of ongelezen aantal.

  9. display out of office when composing a message

    When composing an email to somebody with an out-of-office message (on the same exchange server) outlook should be able display the notice before hitting send. It's frustrating to type out a long and important email only to have it bounce back within seconds.

    Idea 1)
    Why not show the out of office notice immediately when you begin composing the email?

    Idea 2)

    Add a quick button to add the user's return date to your calendar

  11. Allow re-ordering and more control of signatures.

    In Entourage, it used to be possible to re-order signatures and an option to have a random signature chosen. It would be great to be able to manage signatures, re-order them in the list, and perhaps have categories or sublists.

  13. Add "Delegate" feature for IMAP settings.

    I need to be able to have help with my email but the "Delegate" feature is grayed out. Can you make it available to Mac users using IMAP?

  15. I suggest that when an inbox item is dragged to a folder that the NEXT email pop up.

    If an email is filed, why would you want to still see it? this kinda drives a little nuts.

  19. Removing one calendar invite on a series issue

    Wanted to provide a defect. When you are in the outlook calendar view and you have a meeting series, if you right click and try to just ‘remove occurrence’, it deletes the remainder of the series invites. (Mac iOS - version 16.35)
