  1. Automatic Events from Emails is blocking 80% of my reading pane, and there is no way to turn this off. I'm on a Mac.

    Turn off Automatic Events in Email (on Macs) to make it easier to read emails.

  2. mail expiry

    Please include a confidential mode like GMAIL which enables the users on MAC to set an expiry date to the mails they send to receipients. For instance if am sending a mail tp Mr.X, it contains sensitive information (like bank statement) i want to set an expiry date after which Mr.X wont be able to view the message. Am talking about MAC users

  3. Print calendar in dark mode with black type

    Currently when printing a calendar in dark mode, the type is reversed and doesn't appear on the print. Please correct so that printing in dark mode provides a color print out but with black type on white (or color).

  6. When I see calendar entries for the week, the width of current day should be increased compared to other days.

    Then I see calendar entries for the week, the width of current day should be increased compared to other days.
    This helps in 2 ways
    1) focuses on current day
    2) Increases width on the most widely used entry.

    Another option would be to allow the user to modify/save the width per day.

  7. Use a slightly darker color for the time tick mark labels for additional timezones in the calendar

    When both a local and additional timezones are displayed in the calendar, the additional timezone time can easily be mistaken for the local timezone, probably because we read from left to right?) This happens to me enough times that I feel that having the additional timezone tick mark labels displayed in a slightly darker color than the local timezone tick mark labels would be of great help to avoid mistaking the additional timezone time for the local time.

  10. A setting for choosing the display name syntax for contacts.

    At the moment there isn't a possibility to change the display name. Outlook for MAC has always the syntax "given name" and "surname" but it would be very helpful to change this because it has also an impact to my Outlook for Windows 10.

  11. Please update Office software to include the opening of the next item, immediately following the movement of the first email.

    There is a major difference between the Windows version and the macOS version of the Office software. In Windows, when you file, delete, or move an email, it automatically opens the next email (if this user as setup this feature). It's hard to imagine that this could be done for Windows, but not for macOS.

  13. 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.

  15. MAC OUTLOOK PLEASE STOP THE TRAVEL SCHEDULE SUMMARY PANE

    Please STOP or have the option to REMOVE the Travel Schedule SUMMARY TAB on top of the MAC OUTLOOK. it takes up WAY TOO much room in the reading pane, and there is NO WAY TO TURN THAT OFF.

    THAT IS RIDICULOUS. Please immediately STOP IT

  17. Add a feature to PIN your most preferred rules on top of other rules

    Add a feature for both Windows and MAC users

    Please introduce a feature where you can pin your most preferred rules on top of the list, any new rule created should automatically be pushed below those pinned rules.

    Example:
    rule 1 - most preferred rule (pinned)
    rule 2 - preferred rule (pinned)
    rule 3 - every new rule created/added should automatically come to sequence 3 (or after my pinned rules) so that I don't have to re-sequence it every time
