  2. 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.

  3. Public folders keep unsubscribing for different users which seems to happen randomly

    Is it possible to make this similar to the way the Windows version behaves that you open Public folders and which ones you have rights to you can access instead of subscribing as the process to add this seems to be failing. If it mirrored Windows then the issue wouldn't matter as people would open the folders first to point to the one they need.

  4. Farbige Kategorien zuweisen

    Ich würde gerne gleichzeitig mehreren Emails eine farbige Kategorie zuweisen. Momentan geht es immer nur einzeln für eine Email.

  6. Restore the Check Names button with IMAP/LDAP Directory Services

    Since the Mac Outlook 15.17 version was released, the Check Names button is no longer available with IMAP/LDAP Directory Service email accounts. Every subsequent update through the current 15.22.0 (160506) has the same problem. This Check Names button is grayed-out and unavailable for name resolution against an LDAP DS. The keyboard command Ctrl+Cmd+C also does not work. Check Names appears to only be available with Exchange accounts now.

    This issue has not been resolved from versions 15.17 through 15.33 (170315) and affects all my business clients on Mac.

    Xpost from https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/msoffice/forum/msofficeoutlook-msomac/mac-outlook-1517-check-names-button-no-longer/05d1e88d-6791-42e8-afae-8c4457fc29d1

  8. Show more specific dates / times in Inbox list (e.g. not just "Yesterday" for everything)

    When looking at the Inbox listing, every email from yesterday just says “Yesterday” for the timestamp. I have to click on each email in turn to get anything more precise than that.

    On Windows and on the web version of Outlook, it’ll say something like “Thu 1:45 PM” next to each message instead. This is much more useful for scanning the list quickly (e.g., I remember I received an important email yesterday morning… how far down do I scroll until I’m looking at emails from before noon?).

    The Mac UI should show the same timestamps as Windows & web. No…

  9. Saved mail in Windows, Open in Outlook for Mac

    Mail that is saved on the windows (.eml file) can not be opened in outlook for Mac. Make the file format inter changeble.

    When those mails are stored for reference on sharepoint, Mac users can not read it.

  10. Disable recent addresses function in Outlook for Mac 2016

    Please enable the ability for users to disable the recent addresses function in Outlook for MAC 2016. Users receive automated emails with a noreply address from a user within a tool and since it's in the list of recently used addresses for that user it's selected by mistake and they get a bounce-back message. The list also becomes unusable over time.

  11. Conversations - Need to synergise with the Windows Version

    I know there are some repeat requests, both in this "Business" forum as well as the consumer one.

    Conversations for Mail need to have deleted items and sent items visible.

    I know I can click on the "quote arrow" in the message, but it is so much easier in Outlook 2016 for Windows.

    Even Apple mail shows them more intuitively.

    I really want to use Outlook 2016 for Mac, but I end up going to the Windows version in my Parallels Windows 10 VM, because it just works.

    Or maybe that's the idea... you want me to use Windows instead?

  12. mark as spam with one click

    I have to mark mails as spam manually. so i have to click on the mail, click on the button "Junk-E-Mail" an then select "Junk-E-Mail". These are 3 actions to mark a mail as spam on outlook for mac. That is really annoying when you have to to that multiple time a day. Wouldn't it be cool if the button "Junk-E-Mail" just mark the selectd mails as spam and the menu of
    - Mark as spam
    - not marked as spam
    - block sender
    - junk-E-Mail Prefs
    were optional?

  14. Please add the ability to change the subject

    Please add the ability to change the original subject of received emails. Background: some senders choose subjects wihich are not very descriptive or i want to add keywords or my own subject, which makes it easier to re-find mails. In Entourage there was such a feature.

  15. Encryption Robustness

    We use encryption regularly. Outlook regularly crashes when trying to open an attachment in an encrypted email. Sometimes I will have to try to open the attachment 3 or 4 times before I'm successful (with Outlook crashing each unsuccessful attempt). If I have any draft emails that have not been sent when Outlook crashes, they are often not autosaved. Please make Outlook more robust with encrypted email.

  17. Make it optional for Outlook 2016 for Mac to limit syncing when working on tethered connections.

    Currently, with version 16.4.1, when working on a tethered connection, outlook for Mac 2016 does not sync items moved from the inbox to other folders, unless the destination folder itself subsequently is made the active folder or is in the favourites. Most probably, as suggested to me by outlook for Mac support, this limited syncing has been introduced as a feature to save metered bandwidth and improve battery autonomy, but the consequence is that local storage becomes out of sync with the cloud mailbox for mobile professionals.. I suggest to make it possible to turn this highly questionable feature off…
