  1. 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.

  2. Approvals from Mac

    The ability to approve messages is not currently supported on Mac. When a message comes through requiring approval, I'm forced to log on to OWA or find a PC to approve the message.

  3. Support for S/MIME and encryption in IOS

    Put S/MIME and encryption in IOS. It's in the IOS mail app already. Why it's not in Outlook for IOS makes me scratch my head.

  8. Warn before sending to external addresses

    In a corporate environment it is very important we double check before sharing internal email threads with external users / customers.
    Today we have to manually inspect the email recipients list, and this idea will be a big time saver and prevent mistakes.

  11. Fix Sorting when Displaying by Category

    I have always organized email by category as a way to display email. Category by subject or particular action. You used to be able to view by category and have the categories listed first at the top with emails inside each category displaying newest first -- Then emails without a Category were listed directly under those in the NONE category which also displaying Newest first. This is where all incoming email would display (in the NONE category) and you could see all email coming in. Now when you are viewing by category and want categories at the top listed first…

  12. Ability to manage Junk filter for O365 users

    Need ability to manage Junk filter from Outlook client. Based on my research, Outlook for Mac client only allows junk filter management if the mailbox is connected using POP or IMAP, if they are using Exchange, it doesn't allow to manage.

    The message shows "This feature is not available for the accounts currently configured." which is the account we use for work using O365.

  13. Please add Quick Look and Spotlight support to Outlook.

    Messages in Outlook show up in Spotlight searches as Outlook files without content previews. Viewing Outlook messages in Spotlight should be as easy as previewing other file types (including Word and PowerPoint docs).

  14. Bring back unified subfolders (Junk Mail specifically)

    Bring back unified subfolders (Junk Mail specifically). Office 365 is WAY too aggressive when it comes to marking mail as Junk (everything from GoDaddy is moved to Junk, for example), and with me having 3 email accounts it's a PITA to continually have to check three separate folders. It was much easier when it was just one folder.

  17. 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.

  18. Don't change Date sort order when switching to another column sort

    Have been using Outlook for Windows for 20+ years so I'm kind of stuck in my ways. Running Outlook for Mac 2016 v15.30 (170107).

    Here's a problem that is slightly time consuming, so I'd like to see if I am doing something wrong,

    I keep my mail sorted by date, "Z to A" (newest on top). Once in a while, for example, I want to see all messages from a co-worker, or all messages with the same subject (in the same folder). I click on the "From" or "Subject" header and the sort column is changed. That works well but....…

  19. move multiple mails between mailboxes via drag and drop

    Dragging and dropping emails from one account to the other is working if a single mail was selected. If multiple mails are selected it nit not possible. This makes it quite hard to manual move a bunch od emails to the Exchange online Archive

  20. Allow email accounts to be reordered to my liking rather than having them in alphabetical order with no way to arrange them.

    In outlook for windows you can drag and drop the email accounts to reorder them however you like. I would like to see this functionality in outlook for mac as well.
