  1. Stop opening all previously added shared calendars when I add one new shared calendar

    When I add a new shared calendar, Outlook for Mac automatically selects every other shared calendar I have previously opened (by ticking all their boxes) thus causing Outlook to try to load all those calendars at once, and thus stalling for many minutes. Ironically the new calendar being added is the only one to not be ticked. I assume this is a bug not the intended mode of operation.

      • Contact's Information from Exchange

        We use Exchange for email.
        While reading an email, you can "hover" over the senders name and get a pop up info window to appear. If you open the contact information, you get a new window that allows you to create a new contact in your local address book.

        I would like to be able to have Outlook pull the senders info. from Exchange. Like there title, phone number and such. (and NOT create a new contact for me that is basically blank)

          • I want to make Skype calls directly from Outlook; currently that is a 5 step process.

            I use Outlook (Mac 2016) and Skype all day. I want to make Skype calls directly from Outlook; currently it is a 5 step process. Am I missing something?

            • Allow HTML Signatures

              Please add the ability to install HTML email signatures, even if just by making it possible to place .htm files in the Signatures folder.

              I can install an HTML email signature in Outlook on Windows, but right now I have to recreate it from scratch to install it on Outlook for Mac, and signatures will not match across my team since it cannot be formatted exactly the same.

              • zoom

                There should be single zoom option for both incoming and outcoming and preview mails. And it should be possible to mark setting as default. The zoom level should be applied to calendar as well.

                • Stop automatic display of an email in Reading Pane

                  Currently when launching Outlook or clicking an email folder to view its contents, Outlook automatically selects the first email in the list and displays its contents in the Reading Pane. The contents of an email SHOULD NOT be displayed in the Reading Pane until an email is clicked on by the user!!!! Entourage 2004/2008 and Outlook 2011 did not do this!!!!

                    Put the keyboard shortcut to attach files back the way it was before this release. For YEARS, Cmd-E has invoked the file dialog. It's gone and there's no replacement! Now, one must navigate to a submenu to invoke the attach files dialog.

                    • 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?

                      • Allow granular whitelisting of domains for automatic picture downloads in HTML emails

                        The only options available for "Automatically download pictures from the internet" are "In all messages", "In messages from my contacts", and "Never".

                        We'd like to granularly specify what email domains are automatically whitelisted for downloading pictures in HTML emails automatically, so that we could allow all internal email accounts to use this feature, but block it from external ones.

                                Make an email read/unread in one "smart" button is quite essential, rather than the current option to mark it using the menu bar or use to different keyboard shortcuts for that!
                                thanks

                                • Send when Connected

                                  The windows client has an option to "send immediately when connected" - I've discovered several people, mostly executive or customer facing teams, were using this in Windows to queue up emails to be sent, then make any last minute changes if needed. They would then use the ribbon button "Send All" to send all emails waiting in the Outbox.
                                  This would be a great feature to have in Mac Client to prepare, and send emails and have them ready to go when I choose, instead of saving them all as Drafts.

                                  • Fetch mailbox signature from Outlook Web

                                    The Outlook client should have a way of syncing the email signature from the cloud.

                                    It is important to keep all signature synchronized between all clients, Outlook web, Outlook client, Outlook for mac, Outlook for iOS and so on.

                                    The Exchange Transport Rule is not an ideal fit for this scenario.

                                    • 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…

                                      • Make drag and drop work from Apple Photos into Outlook emails.

                                        I'd like to see the behavior fit Apple's Human-Interface guidelines, which are found at https://developer.apple.com/ios/human-interface-guidelines/interaction/drag-and-drop/ Specifically the part that says "Make drag and drop available for all selectable and editable content. Selectable content should be draggable, and editable content should accept dropped content. Also make sure your app supports copy and paste in these areas."

                                        it used to work so nicely with iPhoto. Thanks!
