          • Pasted images not displaying in mail messages

            For the last few months, Outlook 2011 has no longer allowed me to paste images directly into a mail message. When it arrives at the other end (internal mailbox via Exchange server) the image is just a missing image icon.

            In my Sent Items, the image displays as a small blue box with a question mark.

            I have "Automatically Download Messages from my Contacts" enabled and their signature images do download correctly in the same message.

              Add possibility to set meeting priority (high/low). This is possible in Outlook for Windows.

              • Word Suggestions similar to seen in Pages or Apple Mail would be useful

                Word Suggestions similar to seen in Pages or Apple Mail would be useful on touch bar for all Office 365 applications.

                This will speed up tying.

                remove word suggestions in To or CC of Outlook mail. That is not useful at all.

                • Delete appointments silently

                  When deleting an appointment, Outlook for OS X sends a declined message to the meeting creator, even if the meeting/appointment has passed.

                  This is inconsistent with Outlook for Windows; in Outlook for Windows if you delete an appointment it does not send a notification.

                  I would like Outlook for OS X to be consistent with Outlook for Windows on this item.

                  Thank you.

                  • Add additional recipients to calendar response

                    When using the "Respond with Comments" option to accept or decline a meeting, I am requesting the ability to add additional e-mail recipients to the response email. It is common to want to notify people other than the meeting organizer of the specific calendar response.

                      • Allow images in appointments (or process HTML!)

                        Outlook 2016 Mac - the body of the appointment field is very limited in what types of information it will accept and/or process. Often the easiest way to drop in a large amount of information is to put an image. It can be dropped and/or pasted in. But when you try to save it, it says it can't store that type of object and doesn't save (although it helpfully offers to open the default profile folder location for me!?).

                        I've seen some crazy workarounds for this problem since Outlook 2011, and requests for this functionality since then as well. It…

                        • Allow addition of a location when adding appointments from the calendar view.

                          Adding an appointment the two most important pieces of information are 1) Time & 2) LOCATION! My appointments are of varying time and are all over our campus. Forcing me to create an appointment, finish it, then double click it to open up a giant form only to enter a room number is ridiculous.

                          • Add new calendar availability "working elsewhere" as in Windows.

                            Used frequently now in our company due to flexible working. e.g. Working from Home or other office. Setting the calendar on available leads to people assuming you are in office, on away people feel you are not available for a meeting.

                            Should be a very easy feature to implement.

                              The Junk Mail feature in Outlook does not connect to the server so it does not mark future emails from the same sender as spam. Currently I have to use OWA for my junk mail filtering.

                              • 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?

                                  • Stop asking if I want to turn off absent notifications

                                    Whenever I have out of office turned on and I open Outlook, I get asked if I want to turn off out of office. No, I don't. And I would really love Outlook to stop asking everytime.

                                      • 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.
