  2. thread mails using In-Reply-To header

    Many mailing lists set the In-Reply-To header, to indicate that the mail is a reply to another. However outlook does not seem to respect this header, and thus the mail thread is not correctly detected. When using alternative programs, for example Apple's Mail.app, the mails are shown correctly threaded.

  4. Allow pausing incoming messages

    Sometimes when working I don't want to be interupted everytime a new message comes in-I need to hold off on receiving mail, though I need to stay online to plan, review calendars, older emails etc (so Work Offline" isn't an option). Push is great when you want to be in constant contact, but it doesn't help you focus. I would like to have a Mail Snooze button that would let me choose to not receive new email for 15/30/1hr/8hr etc. Let me work uninterrupted.

  5. Add option to set maximum attachment size for IMAP/POP accounts

    Please add an option to set the maximum size for attachments like in the Windows version of Outlook (Registry value MaximumAttachmentSize). This would be helpful to handle internal large messages and to adopt mail size to corporate constraints.

  6. Make the font (and size) for plain-text emails user-settable

    A lot of emails (especially automated emails from internal systems) are sent as "plain text".

    Right now these are displayed in tiny Times New Roman, which makes them hard to read, especially data that uses the monospaced nature of "plain text" for formatting, like lining up columns of data.

    Outlook for Mac should allow the user to select the font and size to be used when reading (as well as replying to!) plain text emails.

  8. Grammar Check

    Grammar check in Outlook is incorrect much of the time. Consult with a live human who understands grammar.

  9. Add option to remove new grid lines

    The latest update to the Outlook client (15.32) on mac adds horizontal grid lines to the message list (preview pane turned off), but added no discernible option to turn them off. The visual clutter really slows me down and I'm surprised MS would make such a significant, draconian (and completely arbitrary) change to the interface without giving users the option to revert it. Was this even user-tested on customers who had Outlook already configured without the grid lines? Please surface an option to turn them off ASAP.

  11. Limit offline - cached mail

    Limit the amount of mail to keep offline, like in the PC version where we can set a date range. We constantly have problems with users with large mailboxes needing to resync giant mailboxes all the time. In the age of gmail, its crazy to tell people they need to wait to sync 40GB of email before Outlook will be usable... for the 2nd time this month

  15. One-click unread toggle

    On the Windows version, a blue bar on the left in the message list shows the (un)read status of the email. With one click there, you can toggle between the states. There should also be a one-click toggle on the Mac version of the email list.

  18. Markers

    The "checked markers" you can add when you have read or finished doing a task from mail, is grey and not so easy to see when you scroll down all your mail. Earlier they were green and much easier to see. I would like you to colour them again with an easy to spot colour!

  19. always use single-line layout

    I miss the "Always use single-line layout" feature from Outlook for Windows. In Outlook Mac, when the reading pane is on the Right, the message list cannot be single-line.

  20. Restore the Check Names button with IMAP/LDAP Directory Services

    Since the Mac Outlook 15.17 version was released, the Check Names button is no longer available with IMAP/LDAP Directory Service email accounts. Every subsequent update through the current 15.22.0 (160506) has the same problem. This Check Names button is grayed-out and unavailable for name resolution against an LDAP DS. The keyboard command Ctrl+Cmd+C also does not work. Check Names appears to only be available with Exchange accounts now.

    This issue has not been resolved from versions 15.17 through 15.33 (170315) and affects all my business clients on Mac.
