  5. Add desktop alert for rule

    Please have a desktop alert for the rules that we have created. At the moment only inbox desktop alert is there for MAC, would be great to have the desktop alert for the notification when new mail is received and processed by rule

  6. BUG: Outlook autoformatting text with heading styles

    For the last few Insider Fast updates I've faced an annoying bug.
    If I don't end a paragraph with a full-stop or comma before hitting return (twice) Outlook autoformats the paragraph with a heading style.

    My default font is set to Georgia 11pt.

    If I start an email 'Dear Tim' then press enter twice it autoformats 'Dear Tim as Calibri Light 16pt in blue.

    The only advice Support could give was to use the Preference reset tool, but this wipes all any categories or rules you have set up, and I have around 50 of each so am reluctant to…

  7. dwillis@shutterfly.com

    If an email is assigned a category and that email is used to create a task or meeting, then the category should still be attached to the task/meeting.

  8. Propose New Time to Meeting and Optionally Include Others on the Response

    Similar to the suggestion "Add additional recipients to calendar response", please add the ability to optionally include others on the Reply that's created when responding to an invitiation from someone and you choose "Propose a New Time". Currently, it is not possible to type additional recipients in the "To:" field or to add a "CC:" or "BCC:" field.

  9. Remove the Unsubscribe button at the top for all subscription based emails

    There is an annoying feature that appears for some emails- an "Unsubscribe" button that appears below the sender-subject-retention policy header. I'd like the option to turn this off or remove it.

  10. Import/Export folders and subfolders

    I really need to export/import folders and subfolders. This enables me to prune folders by archiving them--and then restoring archived folder if I need them. Have had this capability in outlook in previous version, but not now. This seems to be a regression bug.

  11. Quote character instead of indentation

    Indentation is not enough for quoting email text. Not having a clear character as ”>“ (as plain text standard) or “|” (as apple mail) holds me from using Outlook on my Mac. Although it is a really goog email client.
    Come on, please!

  15. [Bug report] Offline updates to calendar invites are lost

    As a user of Outlook connected to Exchange, I want to add information to an unsent meeting invite when I am not connected to a network.
    Expected result: The calendar invite can be updated before it is sent (in a similar manner to unsent emails), and the recipient sees the latest version.

    Actual result: Changes made to unsent meeting invites are lost, and there appears to be no way to recover the unsent changes that were made.
    Client version: Outlook for Mac 16.12 (180410)

    Server: Exchange (unknown version)

    Steps to reproduce:

    1. Disconnect from network (preventing Outlook from sending).
    2.…

  16. Reviewing all contacts that have been assigned to specific categories

    Outlook removed the ability to select a Category in Contacts and review the individual contacts within that category on my Mac. This is an important function when beginning a mail merge. Maintaining the accuracy of the contents of a category is essential.

  17. I need the capability of saving a specific OUTLOOK email folder to a specific folder in my DOCUMENTS.

    For legal purposes I need to save all emails pertaining to specific real estate transactions their respective FOLDERs in Documents on my MAC. I then download them to a thumb drive and save them for 7 years, as required. About 3 years ago that capability disappeared and I've been stuck ever since.

  18. Don't change the size of text when I mouse over it

    There is a very distracting animation when I mouse over certain parts of the ribbon, like the "HOME", "ORGANIZE" and "TOOLS" menus. Animating text is somewhat disruptive and doesn't help the UI experience

  19. stationery

    Please add stationery to Outlook for Mac (the same as in Outlook for Windows). It is a useful yet often overlooked feature.
