  5. banded read pane

    Hello there, I'd like to use outlook, but I find a plain white reading pane background difficult to use. Today I use thunderbird and it bands alternative emails - which (for me) makes distinguishing between emails much easier. I this possible ?
    Thanks

  6. Allow users to turn off email polling (or make mail not appear at all) on particular accounts

    I need some Google calendars, which have personal appointments, to appear in Outlook, so I don't double-book. But I don't need/want gmail from that account to appear in Outlook, too. I can turn off calendars; I should be able to turn off email, too.

  7. unicode / emojis in mail

    Since the update to Version 15.38 (170801) - unicode charters in subject lines are not displayed correctly when the initial email is received. Its fine if the email is forwarded on and then replied to - but any emojis using unicode e.g. =?utf-8?Q?=F0=9F=8C=89?= is not displayed correctly

  8. Please sum up notifications for Outlook groups in the parent folder "groups". If it is closed you can not see you have new messages!

    Unfortunately you can not see if you have unread messages in Outlook, if the groups folder is closed. Please sum up the number of new messages in the parent folder.

  9. Put the keyboard shortcut to attach files back the way it was before this release. For YEARS, Cmd-E has invoked the file dialog. It's gone!

    Put the keyboard shortcut to attach files back the way it was before this release. For YEARS, Cmd-E has invoked the file dialog. It's gone and there's no replacement! Now, one must navigate to a submenu to invoke the attach files dialog.

  10. Move Window Search Criteria

    My typical organization process is to take email received and move them to Outlook folders under 'On My Computer'. Typically I might have a folder structure such as:
    \Vendors\Dell\Support
    \Vendors\Microsoft\Support
    \Vendors\Godaddy\Support
    etc, etc, etc.

    The search field in the Move Window (Cmd+Shift+M) does not support the hierarchy in the search field. For example you cannot search for 'Dell\Support' or 'Godaddy\Support'. You can only search for Support, which list all locations that has a Support subfolder. You can't narrow the search by being more definitive in your criteria.

    I would be very help to be able to provide a more granular…

  12. Archive Folder renaming and/or reassignment

    Allow users (or Exchange administrators) to rename and/or reassign the Archive folder in Outlook for Mac on Office 365 with Exchange. System currently allows for a one time only set-up on first use (with no room for error). Once set system does not allow corrections/changes.

  13. Remove the Unsubscribe button at the top for all subscription based emails

    There is an annoying feature that appears for some emails- an "Unsubscribe" button that appears below the sender-subject-retention policy header. I'd like the option to turn this off or remove it.

  14. Ability to load email images per sender

    I'd like the ability to add senders to a list that will allow images to be automatically loaded in their emails. I don't want to have to add a sender to my address book for this to work. Basically, I'm looking for a feature that Gmail has. :)

  16. Provide an option to customize Autotext in Outlook

    AutoText can be customized in MS Word (enable/disable, edit single entries, enable/disable display tip for AutoText, ...). In Outlook for Mac this is missing. AutoText is always enabled with no option to edit the list entries or to enable/disable the tip display.

  17. Be able to create personal notes within an email

    It would be nice to be able to create notes within an email for personal use/reminder.

    The idea is to have an Icon next to the other Trash, Archive and Flag Icons.
    When you click on Notes Icon it pops up and you can make notes or see your notes about that email.

  18. 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.

  19. Add BCC when creating a mail merge from Word. Currently there is no way to add BCC field when creating a mail merge on a Mac vs PC

    Similar to a PC running windows, really need the ability to add the BCC field when creating a mail merge. Cannot do this on a MAC.
