  2. error code 17193

    Error Code on Outlook for Mac 17193 _ keep getting this error message about an email which has a file too large attached. I can't find the email (not in drafts or sent). IMAP enabled (should I disable POP?). It's infuriating as it keeps coming up. HELP!

  3. Update monthly calendar view

    Make the monthly calendar view scrollable by one week at a time. I use this in my work PC to view current jobs and those coming up on the calendar. It is very time consuming to have to change back and forth between months the last two weeks of the month

  4. "Paste without formatting" option in Outlook

    "Paste without formatting" option in Outlook. We have it in Microsoft Word and Excel. Why not outlook. I would use it every single day. The option is there, but it is not intuitive. You have to paste it wrong first, then click on the little notepad to correct it and remove formatting. It would be better to add it into the Edit menu like the other 3-4 paste options, similar to what you’ve done with the other Microsoft applications. That way you paste it in the right way the first time.

  5. Add to Calendar

    When an incoming email contains a date or time reference in the body or subject, it would be great to click on the date and choose to add the event into the Calendar module. Apple's Mail programme does this adding events into the Calendar App.

  9. When selecting a contact, add "schedule meeting"

    When selecting a contact, their contact card opens instantly. I can call people from there, send an email, IM them lookup their location etc. But what's missing is to schedule a meeting. It would help to quickly check if that person is available any time soon.

  11. Allow color coding for large blocks of time (weeks, months, quarters).

    Allow color coding for large blocks of time (weeks, months, quarters). Color coding events is great, but it would be super helpful to be able to color code large blocks of time. Project based scheduling would benefit from this feature.

  13. offer high end office apps for 365 subscribers online as in gmail or lose the online battle

    Gmail has great online presence. However, i don't want my office files be converted. Though I have subscribed to O365 i get light versions of the apps.

    Outlook does not suggest TO or CC emails though i have them in the contact list.

    My only reason for subscribing O365 is to free me from carrying a PC or Mac for accessing my emails, docs and the presentation slides.

    Of course i can carry my files on a memory stick and use online office products for free.

  15. Extend the disable date for the Mac Outlook Webex plug in

    The current date to disable the injection based Outlook plug in on Mac was previously June and is now October. Most users are not aware of this change and development/planning is still underway to convert users to the add in framework. No formal notice/notification has been provided and the dates seem somewhat fluid. We would like to ask that you extend the disable date and push towards the end of the year (as previously advertised), and set a firm date so the other providers/vendors have time to enhance their add in features.

  18. macos font

    I work at an organization with G Suite, and I'd like to configure Outlook replies to be "invisible" from Gmail replies.

    For macOS, this means better control over fonts, and control over the custom attribution.

    I set my default reply font to Arial 11, but I am reading messages in Calibre. Also, my attribution text will appear in Calibre when my message above it appears in Arial! I'd like to change the font everywhere ("On [DATE], "[NAME]" [ADDRESS] wrote:")

    I'd also like to change the attribution so I can match Google's default of "On Aug 28, 2020, "... rather than…

  19. I suggest you...

    be more clear about the daily limit. As per my 365 Personal subscription I am paying for monthly, I should be able to send emails to 5,000 recipients daily. I just tried to send barely 500 emails for a virtual event I'm organizing, and after 494 emails, was told that I had exceeded my daily limit...
