  1. Implement search that actually finds text in e-mails

    Implement search that actually finds text in e-mails. In its current state, it’s consistently broken, even after repairing Spotlight index.

  3. Cmd+Option+Shift+V should paste as plain text - macOS wide standard

    Please respect the macOS-wide standard for pasting so Cmd+Option+Shift+V pastes as plain text.

    This wastes crucial time having to reach for the mouse and choose "Keep Text Only" every single time...

  4. Folders for Smart Folders

    I think it would be very useful to have Folder in which you could place Smart Folders. ie. One Folder would contain Smart Folders that related to investment. One Folder would contrain Smart folders related or Family etc.

    After being a long time Mac Mail user and switching over to Outlook this is one simple but very useful feature I miss.

  5. Allow Outlook Calendar to import from iCal and subscribe to online calendar subscriptions.

    Subscriptions to online calendars are currently not allowed. This should be changed to allow subscriptions.

  6. Add a 2-Week View to the Calendar

    Week, Work Week and Month view are all great, but I don't need to see weeks BEHIND my current week when forecasting. It would be great to have a calendar view for 2 weeks.

    The current week would be displayed the same as Week or Work Week, and the following week could be displayed either in Week or Work Week view, or it could be condensed down to the month-style view.

  7. Difficult to tell which day it is when viewing in the work week setting

    Difficult to tell which day it is when viewing in the work week setting, can you make it so the day is slightly highlighted, or past days have a grey tone, something to make it more obvious which day it is than the SLIGHTLY thicker red lines

  9. Allow multiple email addresses to be copied from Text Field (body of the email) to the To: field

    Allow multiple email addresses to be copied from Text Field (body of the email) to the To: field
    By design, Outlook for Mac does not allow copy + paste email addresses to the To: field and will result to parsing error. This limitation would result to manually typing the email address one by one.

  13. Include capability to import from and synch with Apple Calendar and Address Book. I used MS Windows at work, but have Apple Macintosh.

    Corporate America uses MS Office almost exclusively, and many are well versed in it. BUT, many also have Apple Macintosh at home and DO enjoy the MS Office applications running on the Mac, in particular, Entoruage, or Outlook today. Would greatly appreciate ability to synch with Apple Address Book and Calendar, but use MS Outlook/Office as my lead applications.

  14. Fix dark mode to have white backgrounds for email bodies.

    The dark mode feature turns the bodies of received emails the same dark color which causes issues with certain emails.

  15. Need copy and paste keyboard shortcuts to work in to/cc address fields

    Cut and paste only works with mouse and menu commands. This is a regression. Please restore.

  16. New Update (16.26) helps spammers - WHY?

    The new update eliminates the control+click option to mark mail without opening a message.

    The new function forces the user to first click the message, thus marking the email as valid for the spammer, before being able to mark as spam with control+shift+J

    This is a terrible step backwards.

    Bring back an option to mark a message as spam without having to first open it. You should work for the paying users, not for the spammers!

  18. Please implement copy/cut of email adresses from the To and Cc fields of O365 Mac Outlook like in the Office 2016 version.

    It must be a bug that Outlook for Mac from Office 365 does not implement copy/cut of an expanded email address from the To or Cc fields when composing a new mail. It is very handy to type a partial address in these fields, expand them, and then copy/paste these into, e.g., the mail body. Outlook for mac from the Office 2016 package implemented this.

  20. Add the task bar to be an option on the the right side of the main email page. I can use that on my Dell. And it really helps me prioritize.
