  2. allow "Send as Distribution Group", such as Outlook for Windows does.

    Outlook for Mac is not able to send out email as (or on-behalf) a Distribution Group, and always got error message with meaningless error code. However, Outlook for Windows is able to use a Distribution Group as the "From" to send out email long long time ago. This is a very important function for a team who facing users, for example Customer-Support Team or Operation Team.

  3. Allow Blocking Sender's domain

    Outlook 2016 for the Mac currently allows you to Block the sender of an email (right-click on message and select Junk Mail>Block Sender). Very often I will get junk emails from many people at the same organization and would like the ability to right-click on the message, select Junk Mail and select "Block Sender's Domain".

    Now that Outlook 2016 syncs this info with Office 365 I will sometimes look at my blocked sender's list in O365 and see that it has a ton of addresses in it. This could be reduced/alleviated by being able to block entire email domains.

    Currently…

  4. add resizing of images in attachments when sending

    The option to resize attached images when composing a mail before sending. Feature is available in the windows version, and resizing images manually takes up a lot of time.

  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.

  7. Please make Outlook search ALL contact groups by default

    Please make Outlook for Mac search ALL contact groups by default. The default has flip-flopped between doing this, and only searching a default Exchange directory, throughout development. We have a read-only Exchange contacts list, so many of our contacts are also in our local address books, so it would be MUCH more convenient to have all contact sources searched at once when we need to.

  8. Allow Outlook to add .pst archives without needing to import or export.

    Working in a domain environment on both Mac and PC based computers, I need to be able to access archived emails in .pst format, stored on a Windows network-based server, from both platforms.

  9. Make the message list clearer

    All the messages on the list look the same; new emails should be in bold and emails should be colored by category as they were in 2011. As it is now, different messages are not easily visually differentiated.

  11. Bring back customised categories

    In Mac Outlook 2011 we had the option to customise arrangements and could sort by category and then by date within that category. As a project manager this was very important and how I live day to day using Outlook. I'm highly disappointed to see this feature is not available in Outlook 2016. I would appreciate this feature being brought back and ASAP. As I'm sure many others feel the same.

  12. 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.

  14. Enable "Next after delete" option

    Outlook for Windows has the ability to move to either the next oldest or the next newest message after deleting a message. Mac needs that capability. Currently you can only move to the next oldest message. If you have a large inbox, and like your current messages on top, it would be more convenient to start at the oldest message, and after you delete/move a message, for it to move up to the next newer message.

  16. Have the ability to disable autocomplete

    We need to be able to disable autocomplete like we can (and do) via GPO on Outlook for Windows. Many people are erroneously sending mail to "no-reply@sharepoint.com" or other such addresses because the displayname they are looking for is being auto-completed based on a received note that is not meant to be replied to. There is an equivalent request on the consumer uservoice here: https://outlook.uservoice.com/forums/293343-outlook-for-mac/suggestions/18770335-have-the-ability-to-disable-autocomplete-feature-f

  17. I suggest you make it so you can see attachments full filenames.

    The attachment filenames are truncated so it is impossible to tell which file is which if you have attachments with the same start to the filename.

  18. Send Button on Touchbar still an issue

    I have updated my outlook for mac to the latest version, but still have a frequent issue of emails being sent unintentionally due to the location of the touchbar send button.

    Please either allow for the customisation of the buttons that are shown on the touchbar - or

    Allow for the touchbar to be disabled

  19. add Read/Unread button to Touch Bar!

    Make an email read/unread in one "smart" button is quite essential, rather than the current option to mark it using the menu bar or use to different keyboard shortcuts for that!
    thanks

  20. Attachment right click copy and paste

    Right click copy and pasting attachments is a HUGE part of our business. When using a MacBook, resizing reading pane and the new message is so time consuming to use drag and drop.
