  1. internal and external email tab or view.

    Create a tab (or view) that allows me to easily switch between a message list that contains internal and external emails. I could see a tab next to "other" or a special filter under the Filter Email button on the Ribbon.

  2. Allow "Filter Email" status to be remembered when switching between e-mail accounts

    Allow "Filter Email" status to be remembered when switching between e-mail accounts.
    Presently you have to redo "Filter E-mail" anytime you switch between inboxes. For example, if I look at Email Account #1 with the "Unread" filter on, then switch momentarily to Email Account #2 to read an e-mail, when I come back to the same folder of Email Account #1, the filter has automatically been removed and I have to redo it.

  3. Provide the ability to export emails to a common format (CSV, JSON XML etc)

    Outlook Mac only allows you to export emails to another .olm file which is useless then you need to move the data to different applications. Please provide the above option, even if it excludes attachments.

  4. Bring back the option to send mass emails by having the drop down contain all contacts in a, b, c, etc. Can't edit registry on a Mac!

    Bring back the option to access all contacts from the drop down menu to send mass emails on Mac. The registry can't be edited on a Mac so Mac users are limited to the most recent 8 contacts and can't access any other contacts under the letter A, for example. It used to work this way until the idiots at Microsoft changed it recently. The only reason Microsoft did this is to make it harder for Mac users to work with Microsoft's software.

  5. Font size for reading plain-text messages

    In recent Office 365 versions (16.2x) of Outlook, the displayed font size for viewing incoming plain-text messages is much smaller than the size for viewing HTML messages or for composing plain-text messages. This problem did not occur in the volume-licensed versions (16.1x) of Outlook. A workaround is to hit "reply" rather than "open," but this is less than ideal. It would be good to go back to the earlier formatting.

  6. disable a specific email account

    Allow users to disable a specific email account, in order to avoid getting a number of error windows in case one account cannot retrieve messages / connect to the email server.

  7. Enhance the "Create Appointment" feature

    Enhance the "Create Appointment" feature to create a calendar entry and after clicking the appointment the former selected email should be opened instead of a typical calendar entry. Additionally change the data selection field to show the whole calendar instead of a date selection option. During the creation process is not clear if a potential slot is not already used.

  10. "send availability" & "defer (scheduling) email" similar to iOS version

    Would like to have the iOS "send availability" & "defer (scheduling) email" features in Mac version. Currently, the iOS features do not appear to be available in the Mac version.

  11. 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…

  12. dwillis@shutterfly.com

    If an email is assigned a category and that email is used to create a task or meeting, then the category should still be attached to the task/meeting.

  14. Meeting preview should show date.

    In Mail view, when a message is previewed that is a meeting invitation, the preview should show the day and date and not just the contents of the day.

  16. Unified Inbox - Outlook

    OUTLOOK should have a UNIFIED INBOX (and sent box) for users with multiple accounts (IMAP or POP). This is the default behavior on most mobile email clients and desktop clients so clearly there's not a technical limitation to implement this (see Apple Mail MacOS or iOS for an example). There would simply be ONE INBOX that displays all the mail received, yet the individual account folders would remain so users could dig into each account separately if needed. For any business user this is an essential email feature.

  17. Include option to disable DELETE ALL trash can in the Outlook Organize tab (Mac)

    I’ve been burned again by Outlook (Mac)….
    I accidentally selected DELETE ALL twice now over the last month or so, deleting massive numbers of emails before I was able to stop it, particularly the first time. I was able to recover both times, but it is a BIG HASSLE and some mail was likely lost in the process.
    This happened to me twice, early in the morning, right after I got up and not completely awake. Both times I was checking and deleting some emails and selected a few to delete. My Outlook page just happened to be open in…

  18. I suggest you add the ability to set up *rules* (not simply out of office responder) for customized auto-replies.

    I want to set up auto-reply messages based on the incoming email address, but the rules interface doesn't give an option of "reply to sender."

  19. Assign a New Rule Option to Reply

    Under my options when creating a new rule, I would like to have the option to create a specific reply to an incoming email that fits the criteria. I have created an email address and subject that requires an immediate reply, a rule that would allow this (similar to an out-of-office reply, but contingent on the rules) would be more than helpful.

  20. nested Smart Folders (like Mac Mail's Smart Mailboxes)

    If you use smart searches a lot, this is a handy way to keep organized and keep similar searches together.
