  1. Improve user control over which attachments get synchronized to the local drive.

    With Outlook for Mac implementing Sandboxing it is becoming very difficult to manage a large Inbox within the confines of entry level SSD sizes on MacBooks. At this moment, the user lacks any sort of control over the amount of data that gets synchronized to the local Profile Database.

    Suggestions:
    a) Allow the user to completely disable attachment download - attachments would only be downloaded when a user explicitly opens an attachment.
    b) Allow the user to disable attachment downloads per folder - this would help with people that use folders to manage older messages.
    c) Allow the user to…

  2. I wanted to archive a single IMAP folder not all the email accounts I manage through Outlook.

    This was something that I could do with my Outlook 2010 for Windows Outlook.

  3. Smaller updates

    Smaller updates. Updates are almost 1GB. There has to be a way to makes the downloads smaller. With all the other Office apps this is unbearable. Almost 5 GB to update the whole Office suite.

  4. here is a winner - sending e-mail in OL & u forget to include attachment - have pop up if you use see attached in body of email

    here is a winner - sending e-mail in OL & u forget to include attachment - have pop up if you use 'see attached' in body of email to remind you to attach - kind of like depositing a check w your bank - if the check amount is different than the amount you entered to deposit - you get a pop up - this one is good!

  5. reading pane disappears

    The reading pane disappears and won't default to it anymore when I change folders. Happened on my Mac and on someone else's Window's machine. Must have been an update that ruined it.

  10. Improve Conversation View

    It would go a long way when showing items in a conversation in the reading pane that you can include invidual messages as well. Just like Mail.app. Imagine scanning through a conversation with 20 emails. With this feature you can select the conversation then scan all the emails on the right in the reading pane. Currently we get 1 line at a time. Here we would get every email. You can then hover over an email in the conversation and a small window would appear to reply, delete or forward that email.

  13. In the past, auto correct left proper nouns alone. This would be preferable to the current situation, where it is very difficult to quickly

    Can we revert to the auto correct of the past, where proper nouns were not corrected? It is very difficult to quickly type unfamiliar names, when they are always incorrectly auto corrected.

  14. Allow for scheduling to have fuzzy/imprecise times

    Many Calendar reminders do not need to have an exact time, but rather just a time window. Example: I just need to call Mr. Jones next Friday morning; I don't need (necessarily) to call Mr. Jones at a specific time next Friday morning. These fuzzy times could be set in preferences. This would be superior to the current alternatives, which consist of (1) scheduling "Call Mr. Jones" at a specific time ("9am"), or (2) scheduling it for a time range that represents morning ("8am-11am"). Currently, with enough "fuzzy time" appointments, the schedule starts looking as if one has committed to…

  15. Make the Same

    I downloaded outlook for my Mac Book Pro and have been using it for a couple weeks. I primarily use Outlook on My Windows computer. Heres the problem. Its almost like two completely different programs from Apple to Windows. I like the Windows version of Outlook. Your Guys translation to Apple is borderline at best. Why not make both versions exactly the same, using the windows version as the standard.

  16. scroll direction

    Outlook 2016 does not honor the OS X setting for 'Scroll Direction' found in System Preferences > Trackpad > Scroll & Zoom > Scroll Direction: Natural

    I have Scroll Direction: Natural enabled (checked) in my preferences but Outlook does no honor this, instead scrolling in the opposite direction. I consider this a bug, not a feature request, that should be fixed.

  19. Revise the autodiscover dialog. It states remember my settings but the dialog is

    Autodiscover dialog is confusing. The remember my setting works until your remove a calendar or mailbox. So next time you open a shared calendar you will be asked to allow the autodiscover again. Very confusing

  20. Delete email reponses linked to history. Especially when the contact email is changed.

    Delete email responses linked to history. Especially when the contact email is changed. The old address still comes up as an option. This could lead to serious mistake with confidential information
