  1. be able to download one email account instead of all.

    In Outlook for Windows you can create email account groups to download specific accounts. The current MAC Outlook Version requires you to download all accounts at the same time. The new version does't even support IMAP or POP3 so it is useless to most users.

  2. The New Outlook | Responsiveness of contents

    For my work, i need to use 3 screens and their configuration are different from the common ones. I mainly use Outlook in a 9:16 vertical ratio. Unfortunately, the Outlook interface takes up more space than the maximum width of the vertical screen and therefore encroaches to the adjacent screen. In result, i can't use for now the new Outlook.

    My idea would be:
    1- Be able to adapt a more responsive version in vertical AND horizontal format.

    2- Develop a simple/miniaturized version (with only pictograms, no text on tabs). Minimize the top row when selecting emails and make it…

  3. I suggest you in Outlook, to have possibility "to switch off" automatic deleting e-mail

    I suggest you in Outlook, to have the possibility "to switch off" automatic deleting e-mail if e-mail is indicated as meeting invitation. Because very often "this kind of e-mails" - invitations, consists "meeting invitation link". And if you have connected/sync mobile phone with desktop comp, you can simply lose invitation link.

  4. Second Tier Email Sort Function

    I love the conversation sort, an additional help would be to have a second sort by From or To. I may want to clear emails by a person and pull in all "Conversations" associated not just emails from that person.

    Thanks!

  6. Support dynamic fields in Outlook for Mac - please!

    Hello!

    I would like the Office team to support dynamic fields.

    I work in Product Marketing, and often have to do a bit of internal outreach in generating customer references.

    Dynamic fields would help me to streamline my outreach by opting for fields like {name} or {customer} based on csv or xml files.

    Please help!

    Thanks,
    Pat

  7. Create a static mtg ID option -

    Is there a way to schedule a meeting using Teams with a static meeting id? I schedule weekly back to back one on one with my individual team members and I don’t want to have to leave one meeting just to have to join another. I want to schedule their meetings, I join and then they each join at their scheduled times. Is this possible?

  9. Make it easier to toggle the microphone for dictation in Outlook 365.

    Suggest you move the microphone toggle icon to the left, somewhere near the send button. This will avoid the ned to scroll to the right to dictate, and then back to the left to send. Alternatively, how about a keyboard short-cut to toggling the microphone ? Don't use the same keyboard short cut as the native Apple dictation system (which is Fn twice) as the systems are different, and yours seems slightly better!

  10. Use Custom Signature for allotted time frame

    It would be great if Outlook had similar functionality to Out of Office messages where a signature during a designated time period. For instance, we a company is promoting a special event, the "event signature" would drop off after the event is over and revert to the standard signature.

  11. Help Senior citizens and people with vision issues - Important !!

    Outlook needs the ability to increase font and screen zoom in - we should have the little slider bar like we have with Excel and Word in the bottom right corner

    Its annoying for Seniors to read the small fonts.

  17. Stop using iTunes to open .wav attachments

    This is really annoying and unnecessary. Previewing the .wav works just fine. Change that to default.

  18. Allow settings, screens, etc. to be saved

    Currently, resizing columns or changing layouts, and other settings are forcibly reset to the Outlook defaults and not saved. Requiring me to reset my settings everytime I open the app so Outlook works as I want it to is nothing short of annoying.

  19. Allow for Saved Searches to be Favorited

    Outlook for Windows allows Saved Searches to be Favorites and moved to the top of your sidebar to be easy "default views". I suggest you add this feature to Outlook for Mac so that we can do simple things like looking through Unread emails only, or watching out for emails from our leadership or customers.

  20. Support OME type of encryption on MAC

    In our enterprise, we use S/MIME globally accross all platforms. Some users have windows and tend to use OME along with S/MIME, which is not supported or can be decrypted on MAC.
