  1. Allow moving search results to "Focused" or "Other" inboxes

    When I'm in my Inbox and I highlight a message, I can see the Move to Other/Focused choices in the top menu under Messages (nothing in the ribbon), but if I do a search and highlight a message, that choice disappears from the Message menu.

    I often do searches that result in long conversations that need to be moved to Focused or Other.

    Outlook for Mac 2016 v15.41. My MacOS is High Sierra v10.13.2.

    • Preview .eml files inline with mail

      Many mailing lists coming from systems like GNU Mailman can send a digest email with attachments in eml format. In Mac Mail these preview inline and work really nicely. In Outlook they appear as attachments and can only be interacted with through Preview. Could they be previewed inline to make these mailing lists useful on Outlook for Mac?

      • Add option to disable “quote only selected text on reply” feature

        Add option to disable "quote only selected text on reply" The same way it is implemented for standard Mail app on MacOS.

        • Show number of results next to Smart folders

          I am using Smart folder as task list - marking emails with flag and then having Smart folder "To Do". What I lack is seeing all the time how many emails are flagged, i.e. how many emails I should respond to, straight away. Windows Outlook does that and I am used to it so it would be great to have the same in Mac Outlook. thanks

          • Please make the google integration work in any form. It is unusable as is.

            Google apps for business are a major player and outlooks support is terrible. So many features not working I could not list them. Please improve

            • collaborative tasks

              I am quite puzzled that it seems to be impossible at Outlook for Mac (v 15.41) to collaborate on tasks or even only display tasks sent from other Outlook users (using the PC version).

              • after updating task it moves to next

                In the task list, when I update a category or followup date, it automatically moves it to the next task. I don't want it to move forward until I'm done updating multiple items on the task. I keep having to click back on the task.

                • Add a setting for "Default Startup Folder View"

                  Add a setting for "Default Startup Folder View" as already voted for in the "none business" forum here https://outlook.uservoice.com/forums/293343-outlook-for-mac/suggestions/15332733-add-new-setting-default-startup-folder-view.

                  As suggested in the comments, at the very least the factory install default should the "All Accounts" Inbox.

                  • Enable the Archive button for older versions of Exchange (prior to Exchange 2016)

                    There's an odd asymmetry between Exchange for iOS and Exchange for Mac.

                    Exchange for iOS displays the "archive" button when connected to older Exchange servers (prior to 2016), but Exchange for Mac doesn't.

                    Please bring Exchange for Mac at least up to parity with Exchange for iOS.

                    • Support for S/MIME and encryption in IOS

                      Put S/MIME and encryption in IOS. It's in the IOS mail app already. Why it's not in Outlook for IOS makes me scratch my head.

                        • Send Button on Touchbar still an issue

                          I have updated my outlook for mac to the latest version, but still have a frequent issue of emails being sent unintentionally due to the location of the touchbar send button.

                          Please either allow for the customisation of the buttons that are shown on the touchbar - or

                          Allow for the touchbar to be disabled

                            • Allow Unread Message Count on icon to ignore unread messages from Other User's Folder

                              I have access to Other User's Folders (group email account). I do not want to see the count of unread messages on the icon in the toolbar. I only want that to display what is unread in my primary account (NOT talking about focused mailbox). Perhaps checkboxes for each as to whether it will show them or not to give people the option.

                              • Combine the consumer and business UserVoice...

                                It doesn't make sense to have the UserVoice be separate for business users without making sure people are aware of it. There are a large number of items in the consumer list that are more busy related, and should be in here, but moving them doesn't make sense. Please combine the two forums.

                                • enable export from outlook for Mac in anything other than .OLM, which is incompatible with anything other than Mac. How about CSV?

                                  Unless you are in a Mac-only shop, it is impossible to transfer email archives, contacts, etc from one computer to another unless you have an Exchange server - which we do not all have.

                                  • Conditional formatting in calendar

                                    Please add support for conditional formatting in calendar, so that different types of appointments can render dynamically in different colors. Categories can do this to a limited extent, but there is no easy way to conditionally apply categories to appointment items.

                                    • Email - Add Reminder Pop-up Calendar

                                      When you set a date for an email reminder Outlook does not provide a pop-up calendar to help select the required date. This feature is available in Outlook for Windows. It would also be beneficial for the time of day to also be selected as well.

                                      It is difficult to select a day-month-year without seeing what day of the week is being chosen for followup.

                                      • Dragging & Moving messages in Search Mode

                                        When I search for a message & found it, then I want to drag it to a particular folder or sub folder, it's not possible in Mac, though it's very much possible n Outlook for Windows. We want this feature in Outlook for Mac.
