      • Add Ignore Thread / Conversation

        The windows client lets you select email threads and ignore all future responses to it. There's no reason mac users shouldn't have this option. I would love to ignore all threads involving my coworkers cats or memes on my mac client, but I can't. I'm forced to live with their cats and cat meme threads.

        • Remove Send button from Touch Bar

          MS has started to integrate the touch bar into the Office suite- which is awesome. I’ve seen some improvements to my workflow. However, the last update has added a “send” button to Outlook. In the last two days, I have accidently sent several messages while still composing. MS needs to allow configuration of the touch bar, or move/remove the send button ASAP.

                    • Fix quoting for HTML and plain text replies.

                      Outlook for Mac has been hobbled for some time by not providing proper quoting for plaintext (internet-standard > prefixing) and by having HTML quoting styles that don't support in-line replies. Windows Outlook supports both, PLEASE fix!

                        • favourites

                          I want to see favourites on my mac the same as on my pc. I have many email accounts and i want to choose what/how many i see by default. Seeing all inboxes is really distracting for me now on mac 2016.

                          • New message in bold and blue

                            Since the update from last monday of Outlook (now 15.32) for Mac the incoming mail is now in font medium and black in stead of bold and blue. Can you please change it back to bold and blue? Also there is a line between the mails that doesn't make it easier to watch.

                            • multiple language

                              working with multiple language in outlook for mac is a real nightmare. We are a global company dealing daily with email in at least 2 languages and often 3. For every single mail we write, since there is no smart language identification, we do need to write email, select the contact and go to language to switch the languages - which is ridiculous. Word detects the language in few words, and even writing an email on smartphone today has this feature.

                              • Show the recipient's email addresses not just the name.

                                Outlook often picks up the wrong email address for my contacts and uses those when I type the person's name as a mail recipient. For example Wunderlist notifications. Too many times I've sent the email to the wrong address. Please give me a chance to notice the address is wrong before sending.

                                    I'd like to dedicate my Outlook for Mac - buisness votes to this feature also detailed here https://outlook.uservoice.com/forums/293343-outlook-for-mac/suggestions/14894964-format-painter

                                    As the support page FAQ says, it is not yet available. https://support.office.com/en-gb/article/Format-email-messages-in-Outlook-2016-for-Mac-cb35806b-4174-41d2-9cba-b6b624d988b3?ui=en-US&rs=en-GB&ad=GB

                                    Having just transitioned to mac from windows I think this is the thing a actually miss most. So many valuable minutes wasted trying to match fonts.

                                      Most of my tasks arrive as email. I need a quick easy way to turn an email into a Task. Follow up is not sufficient.

                                        • Integration

                                          Integrate Outlook for Mac with Onenote for Mac. Having the ability to single click an email to add to OneNote is a major win.
