  1. Calendar and task-list in main-screen of outlook

    At the moment calendar and task-list just can be used in separate screens. It would be very useful to implement both features (calendar & task-list) in the main screen of outlook, where mail view and folder structure is located. Windows-version of outlook already delivers this function by a so called "popup"-function, so please make it possible for mac-users, too. thanks.

  2. Fix Dark Mode to include the message preview

    Just like the topic says. Make dark mode include the message preview pane. The main interface is nice but the dark mode being there then contrasting with a bright white message preview really hurts the eyes.

  3. Import/Export folders and subfolders

    I really need to export/import folders and subfolders. This enables me to prune folders by archiving them--and then restoring archived folder if I need them. Have had this capability in outlook in previous version, but not now. This seems to be a regression bug.

  4. Add Outlook to Share Menu (Extensions), for Mac

    Have Outlook added to the 'share' menu (under Extensions) in System Preferences. It's time-consuming, and annoying to constantly have to drag files to Outlook — as opposed to being able to sending them via Outlook under the 'share' option. This is a must for businesses, that email a lot of attachments. Thanks.

  6. search

    Please reinstate the quick refinements for "from:", "to:" and "contains:" to be added to keywords entered into the search box in Outlook for Mac 2016.

    The new predictive algorithm and search suggestions don't work for me at all – sometimes I need to find emails "from X", sometimes I need the ones sent "to X" and sometimes I want emails that "contain X" where X is a person's name, a company, or a product.

    The previous refinements made it fast to find emails and switch the filtering. The new way involves multiple clicks, or setting up saved searches – it's so much…

  7. Ability for Calendar filters, i.e. Categories, to support Grid view, currently only supports List view. Feature removed in 16.20 update

    Microsoft removed the feature for you to select which Category to show on a Calendar i.e. Grid View. You used to be able to do this by clicking on the Triangle next to a Calendar in the Sidebar which would display all of your Categories. Then you could pick and choose which Categories to display on your Calendar. Now that this feature is removed, you must use Filters, which would be OK but Filters only support List View. Feature removed in 16.19 or 16.20 update.

  8. Quote character instead of indentation

    Indentation is not enough for quoting email text. Not having a clear character as ”>“ (as plain text standard) or “|” (as apple mail) holds me from using Outlook on my Mac. Although it is a really goog email client.
    Come on, please!

  9. I suggest you make the Mac version of Outlook allow the option to open the next message upon a delete or move.

    I won't use Outlook on Mac because the feature to open the next message upon a delete or move that I've used in Outlook for years is missing on the Mac. The Windows version has the ability to set what action is performed upon a message delete or move. Mac just moves the message or deletes it and the message stays on the screen. This is very annoying and I won't use the Mac versions of Microsoft. It's amazing to me that this was omitted on the Mac. I see 1000's of posts for people using this feature. Seems pretty…

  10. Allow sync with IMAP calendars

    I just found out that IMAP calendars will no longer sync with Outlook 2016. Calendars are such an important part of business services, I'm not sure why this was removed!

  11. Add ability to snooze

    Add ability to snooze messages (i.e schedule messages to come back to the top of your Inbox). Many modern clients support this and it is actually already part of Outlook for iOS. If added, this should be available to use as one of the swipe gestures.

  13. BUG: Outlook autoformatting text with heading styles

    For the last few Insider Fast updates I've faced an annoying bug.
    If I don't end a paragraph with a full-stop or comma before hitting return (twice) Outlook autoformats the paragraph with a heading style.

    My default font is set to Georgia 11pt.

    If I start an email 'Dear Tim' then press enter twice it autoformats 'Dear Tim as Calibri Light 16pt in blue.

    The only advice Support could give was to use the Preference reset tool, but this wipes all any categories or rules you have set up, and I have around 50 of each so am reluctant to…

  14. Add a delay rule to all outgoing emails

    We would like to have an option to create a rule to delay all outgoing email, like in Outlook for Windows.
    Thye idea is to have a small time to cancel the sending if there is something wrong.

    You can delay individual messages, but you cannot add a rule to "auto-delay" X time any email you send.

  16. I need the capability of saving a specific OUTLOOK email folder to a specific folder in my DOCUMENTS.

    For legal purposes I need to save all emails pertaining to specific real estate transactions their respective FOLDERs in Documents on my MAC. I then download them to a thumb drive and save them for 7 years, as required. About 3 years ago that capability disappeared and I've been stuck ever since.

  20. Dark mode reading pane is unusable in latest version

    I just updated to the latest version of Office for Mac that support Dark Theme in MacOS Mojave. I like using Dark Theme and am excited that Outlook is joining the team, but I am disappointed to see that the reading pane is still in light mode. It is jaring to see the reading pane next to the rest of the program. Is there a way to make the reading pane be dark as well?
