  2. Remove "From" field or remove send-as list

    When you add a shared calendar to Outlook 2016, the calendar/person also appears in the "From" dropdown menu when composing a new email. This is confusing for many users.

  3. Character count when drafting emails

    I'm in advertising and we often need to check the character count of our copy. It was very convenient to be able to check the character count when drafting an email on my old PC’s Microsoft Outlook since we usually go back and forth with our client.

  4. Improved contact selection

    The highlighted suggested email contact changes once active directory contacts load in. It would be nice if the first contact in the list staid highlighted.

  5. Fix geometry calculations so you don't cut off characters on the right

    When reading/composing a message, the width of the window is not calculated properly and a fraction of a character can get cut off on the right.

  6. 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.

  7. 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.

  10. Tying Conversations Together

    There are often multiple e-mail feeds/conversations that come through for the same topic, issue, etc. It would be great to have the ability to tie the conversations together so that additional searches are not needed when a separate e-mail conversation is taking place regarding the same topic.

  12. 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!
