  2. Fulltext search in encrypted mails like mail Apple app in IOS

    Make fulltext search available for encrypted mails, like it is possible e.g. in Apple mail app in iOS. All the mails are encrypted here by default, so search functionality is practically useless.

    I the apple mail app in iOS, fulltext search also works with encrypted mails when I have the SMIME certificate on my device.

  4. Open folder when there is new mail like it used to do.

    At least in 2007 Outlook a folder would open if new mail was in it. Computers were supposed to save time! Why do we have to hunt for new mail?!

  6. Office365 outlook for Mac mailbox attachment cannot exceed the limit of 35m, which is very inconvenient to use. It is recommended to update

    Office365 outlook for Mac mailbox attachment cannot exceed the limit of 35m, which is very inconvenient to use. It is recommended to update to solve the problem, otherwise more and more users will be lost.

  8. Add a sent folder for shared email addresses.

    Every time I send an email from the shared email, I have to manually cc otherwise my sent email will go into my personal folder and my coworker won't be able to see what I sent out. Please add a sent folder to shared email addresses on outlook.

  10. Persistent filter

    The "filters" ("Only not read" by example) are not persistent (By closing the outlook and open up again the filter is lost)

  11. Find a different way to list removed attachments

    When you select reading pane to be below the list of emails and you remove multiple attachments from an email, the mail viewing area reduces significantly because of the removed attachment notices taking up all the screen area. Try using below pane with 10 removed attachments and you have tiny space left to read the email. This is ugly and annoying. There should be a dropdown list of removed attachments instead.

  13. Highlight folders with new mail

    When a rule is set up where it puts the email into a specific folder need a way to see it clearly. Even something simple as open the folder and make it bold or highlighted somehow. Like it used to do in Outlook 2007

  14. Only ask to update calendar time zone if time zone (offset) actually changed

    Outlook asks to update the Calendar time zone even when travelling between places with the same time zone, but different TZIDs, for example Amsterdam and Berlin.

    Steps to reproduce: Go to macOS Date & Time Preferences, disable automatic time zone, set closest city to Berlin. Outlook will ask to update time zone, confirm the request. Now set closest city to Amsterdam. Outlook will ask to update the time zone again, despite Berlin and Amsterdam both being in the same time zone.

    Root cause: macOS uses a TZDB with location-based keys, i.e. one time zone is “Europe/Berlin” and one is “Europe/Amsterdam”…

  15. Allow editing w/o sending an email

    Can you add a feature that allows people to update / edit calendar invites without sending an email update each and every time to the people on the invite? This causes unneeded emails being sent out and can almost be seen as spam to users on invites that get edited frequently.
