  1. New outlook for Mac

    I LOVE the new outlook for Mac format. However, I cannot have multiple mailboxes lined, so had to switch back.

    Please can you enable this functionality so I can use both my frequently used mailbox and calenders in the new format.

    Thanks in advance.

  2. "Join a Teams Meeting" hyperlink

    When I setup a Teams meeting via an email, please have the "Join a Teams Meeting" hyperlink placed ABOVE the content within the body of the email. Currently the hyperlink is BELOW the content of the email, and for some reason, no one likes to scroll down to the bottom of the email.

  5. Strongly suggest having the email search feature just above the email preview panel, as it does for Windows. Otherwise it is inconvenient.

    Please include the email search feature for all emails just above the preview pane rather than top right of the screen. It's in an inconvenient spot for Mac.

  6. Add a setting where you define the default email account for NEW messages.

    No setting exists today. Instead new messages default to an outbound from email that I can't figure out. It seems random.

  7. Let us know when someone has an auto-reply on before sending the email

    You don't receive someone's auto forward (not even as a preview) until the email is sent.
    When using Outlook online you can preview it but not on the Outlook app.
    I'm using Outlook for Mac v16.39

  8. Add Block Quote on formatting tool bar as in OWA

    OWA has a button on the formatting tool bar to change a paragraph to "block quote" format, but Outlook 365 for the Mac does not.

    I'd like it added, please

  9. I think it would be great if you allowed for users (including Mac users) the ability to change the TITLE/Subject of meetings sent by others.

    I think it would be great if you allowed for users (including Mac users) the ability to change the TITLE/Subject of meetings sent by others. It's very annoying when someone sends me a meeting, and I cannot control the title of the meeting to my preferences on MY SCHEDULE. Say my name is Brandy, and somebody sends me an invite titled "Brandy and Susie for Lunch", at a glance it looks like I'm having a meeting with myself and can't change it.

  10. Configurable "Show As" options

    With the Work From Home and people needing to control their calendars and make visible they are assisting kids with school work or caring for elder parent or putting breaks for wellness. Would be nice to have a new status and color to represent these so others booking meetings know you are not avalable.

  13. disable google account microsoft cloud sync

    Add an option to add a Google account without syncing your email and other data to the Microsoft Cloud. There doesn't seem to be an option for this, so you cannot use Outlook for email without giving your content to Microsoft (no matter what the Privacy Policy says), not even with IMAP.

  15. Place the "-" and "+" buttons of Advanced Search on the left side of dropdown menu.

    Advanced Search of email shows the "-" and "+" buttons on the right side of the search box, but they should be placed on the left side of the dropdown menu for better usability. I would suggest that the ideal order is "+", "-", dropdown menu and search box (= text box).

  17. 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.
