  1. I think the invitee list should be sorted by alphabetical order so you can look for names easier

    Looking through a large meeting invite it is difficult to get a sense who is invited and who isn't invited. Putting the list in some order would be helpful.

  2. Make it harder to "Remove from Favorites"

    It is way too easy to "un-Star" a favorite.
    please make me confirm that I meant to un-star a favorite.

  3. Add contact to the Recent Addresses list only after user actually replied to it (or wrote first).

    In Outlook for Windows user needs to reply to an email (or write first) for an address to be added to the Recent Addresses list. On Macs user doesn't need to do anything and the addresses are added automatically. This gives a possibility for malicious users to inject one or multiple similar email addresses of known contacts by just sending email to victim. More than that, Outlook orders the list based on the recipient which sent the most emails, so if malicious user sends more emails than the original sender, he would overrule and become the first suggestion of the…

  4. Show invitation sent time in calendar invitation

    If you are viewing your calendar it shows all items in the view, including those that are received in your inbox, but not responded to. And they all appear as tentative in the view. But if you open them from the calendar you have no way to know when they were sent. That is the invitation sent time is not part of the view.

    But that means if I have multiple overlapping invitations and I want to fair and accept the first one I cannot work out which it is except by manually going through my Inbox to find it.

  5. Allow rules to be exported and then used on a different Mac

    Currently I create rules on the computer that I'm working on but these do not sync between multiple machines. Being able to either add to iCloud and sync with all accounts or even just export the rules to manually add would help

  6. Inline mini translator for Office 365 for Mac.

    Inline mini translator for Office 365 for Mac. Similar to what you have for the windows version.
    The ability to select text in the mail and a hover box appears with the translated text.
    I am English speaking living in Germany so this is vital to my productivity.

  7. Rule Action to Play Custom Notification Sound

    I occasionally receive emails related to production support tasks which must be acted on immediately. I'd like to be able to create a rule to play a custom sound when I receive one of these emails.

    Since I can use rules to mark them high priority, another option is just having a different sound for high priority emails.

    It would also be nice to have an option to always play this kind of sound over my system speakers. That way if I'm not wearing my headphones or I step away, I can still be alerted.

  8. Keep previous sort preferences for column headers

    I prefer to have date sort with the oldest on top. Let's say I have my email sorted in that manner. If I click on Subject, it re-sorts by subject. That's fine. However, If I then click on the "Date Received" header, it automatically re-sorts with newest on top, and I have to click the column header again to sort with oldest on top. It would be nice to have the last order used for a column when one clicks the header to sort by that column. The email client I use for personal use (Postbox) does this, and it…

  9. Add room to someone else's meeting

    I would like to be able to add a room onto a meeting that was created by someone else. It would be useful when a client invite us at a meeting and we have to regroup in a meeting room.

  10. Show Unread Message count next to Smart Folders

    Show Unread Message count next to Smart Folders, the same way it shows up for all other folders. The use case here is that I've created smart folders for mail in my Inbox that is from key people (one smart folder per person) that I need to prioritize. When new mail arrives from one of those people, I need a visual queue that a new message has arrived from that person.

  11. Separate address books so you don't accidentally send an email from the wrong domain

    I have two companies I’m working for and often when I’m writing a new email, it is being sent from the wrong domain and i accidentally send emails meant for coworkers at one domain from the domain of a different company. It’s dangerous. I'd like to separate address books so when I’m writing an email from domain X, it doesn’t pull up the addresses associated with domain Y. In a hurry I'll make the mistake and the damage is done.

  14. Display message classification

    Exchange has a feature called Message classification which displays a classification on an email in Outlook. This function works properly on Outlook on Windows, but does not function on Outlook on Mac.

  16. Simplify the UI

    In general, simplify the UI. It is so visually busy I immediately get overwhelmed and want to close the program. I am so close to reverting to Mac Mail and Calendar. I really hate it.

  18. Keep Sidebar Sizing

    There is a lot of padding/empty space with the folder view, reading pane, and schedule view on mail. I frequently resize the folder and schedule panes so that the reading pane fits the full message (messages are not being resized to fit the reading pane). But if I switch to the calendar view, once I go back to mail the sidebars are reset to their original width.

  19. End the terrible experience of pushing Outlook to the foreground when you dismiss a reminder. This is an AWFUL experience.

    Click "dismiss" and continue working in the same application I was using before Outlook took over. If I do this, then I have been reminded. Unlike today, where I dismiss a reminder, Outlook moves to the foreground (for some unknown reason), and I must move it to get back to my work.
