  1. Canceled dates should remain visible

    I suggest you the function "Cancel date", which should cross out the date in the calendar but keep it visible, until chosen otherwise

  2. Dark Mode Option

    I love the idea of the dark mode option, however on most cases I find it hard to read with a dark background due to recent updates. I hopes there's a permanent option to switch to light mode for reading pane, instead of having to push the light switch all the time when scrolling through emails.
    Now I gotta turn off the whole dark mode option for reading and efficiency purposes.

  5. Create email from contact category

    In Outlook for Windows, contacts can be grouped category then the category can be drug to the email tab to create an email to all of these contacts. In Outlook for Mac, there is no such option, so this is a request for this option since it makes sending bulk emails very simple.

  7. I suggest you correct the Turkish translation for "From" and "To" in the "Order By" selection menu.

    The translation for "From" and "To" selections in the "Order by" menu in mail is utterly wrong! This is a disgrace for Microsoft. Microsoft, which has been in Turkey for decades, should do better!

  8. Would love to have "Add to Auto-Correct" in Outlook for Mac, like in Word

    Please include "Add to Auto-Correct" when right clicking on a mis-typed word. This feature is included in Word, but not in Outlook for Mac.

  9. provide a way to delay ALL outgoing emails sent on the weekend until Monday morning (or other pre-set times)

    Currently, there is the option to delay the sending of emails on an individual basis. I would like to see a feature where I can delay all outgoing messages to a pre-set time so that emails are not received by colleagues on the weekend.

  11. Political Email Countermeasure Rule Template

    Based on the high number of Political emails, it would be great if you folks could provide a mail rule template(s) for customers to use. While I consider my skills with MS Office to be 'above average, I struggle to build a mail 'RULE' that works effectively. They use hundreds of email addresses to circumvent any attempt to block their harassment emails. I would love to have a mail filter rule to protect against the on-slot of campaign donation requests. It's so pervasive; I am confident that many users would pay for such a pre-configured Rule(s) to defend against this…

  12. Improve Mail filtering RUELS...

    I receive more than 100 political Robo emails a day. The rules I set to block them is mediocre at best. They use an algorithm that somehow bypasses my Rule(s), or they slightly change their email Address to punch through. It would be helpful if all mail addresses that are not in my Address book on any of my accounts are 'AUTOMATICALLY' blocked/trashed/or sent to the Junk Folder. I value my email address, and I don't want to change it.

  13. Add Mail Feedback button...

    Add a 'Feedback' button in the upper right-hand corner of the mail module like you have in Edge. I stumbled upon this page by accident. Microsoft Edge for the Mac has phenomenal potential, and it's now my de' facto favorite browser/mail software that I have ever used.

  15. I suggest you provide an approved facility to secure folders of files with passwords.

    I would want to secure assorted Word and Excel files under a folder without having to secure each file independently.

  16. Drag open email message to 2nd monitor

    For some reason I can not drag an open email message. It stays in front of my inbox. I would like to be able to drag an open message over to my 2nd monitor.

  19. Moveable Drafts Window

    Instead of having to click a draft to minimise it, please consider the ability to drag said draft around the window. It makes it easier when copying and pasting content/email addresses etc.
    Thanks!
