  1. Serious bug in Outlook Mac version 16.39 (200061000)

    After the installation of the new beta release, outlook gives an error regarding unsopported email accounts. These happen to be all IMAP accounts. Gmail and Office365 are working good. Just the IMAP accounts are deleted in the new version. So had toawitch back to the old version…. COncernc outlook for mac. release 16.39 (20060705)

    Prior release functioned normal

    This is the error message i get:

    We're sorry, the following accounts and items aren't supported and won't be available here. Please switch back to the standard Outlook if you'd like to use these accounts.

  2. Creat a keyboard shortcut for muting/unmuting mic in Teams meetings

    It seems like a pretty good idea during a global pandemic when everyone is online chatting in meetings all-day. Instead of finding where my cursor is on my screen, maneuvering it to the tiny mic icon to unmute myself, I could simply use a hotkey combo to do it for me, like Slack and Zoom. Microsoft is so frustrating.

  3. Pop-up window for inbox emails

    I used to have the excellent option to double-click an email and open it in a pop-up window. This helps to keep an email open while browsing throuhgh inbox for information that I could cut/paste into the new email. I am not able to do this currently on 365 for Mac because I completely LOSE the inbox-view when in a new message is open. I am sure this is a simple fix that would help me and my research community who have recently migrated to 365 and who have noticed this crucial oversight.

  4. Change the way autodiscovery works first try autodiscover.domain.com

    Enterprise macs who uses office365 mostly uses autodiscover.domain.com as the way to setup things. However MS Outlook for mac goes first to try domain.com then autodiscovery.domain.com. This way it creates unwanted traffic on your company's website. If you have quite many macs you get much unwanted traffic.

  5. Can also move sent mails to archive

    Outlook has the function "Archive".

    Unfortunately, this is only possible for mails you receive. (Inbox)
    Why isn't this for sent mail? (Outbox) I don't understand!
    What does that make sense just to archive the receipt and not send mails.
    Only half of it is archived!
    Is then again to search/find in two different places

    Archiving should also be available for sent mails!

    Make the full conversation viewable in tasks, even the emails sent and received after creating the task, will greatly help on tracking it.

  9. rule "does not contain"

    Please include a rule for the mail filter "DOES NOT CONTAIN" a word inside the message body for example.

    Right now I can only specify "DOES CONTAIN" in MS Outlook 16 for MAC

  10. Send 6-digit two factor authentication codes in a format that MacOS can suggest them for autofill

    When my bank sends a 6 digit two factor authentication code, MacOS will suggest the code as an autofill on the banking screen. When Microsoft send 6 digit 2FA codes to access our corporate enterprise site, they don't get suggested as an autofill. When I change my corporate password (every few months) I can get up to 20 SMS messages with codes. Would be useful if I didn't need to type them all in across Mac Mail and all the MS office apps.

  11. Encryption Robustness

    We use encryption regularly. Outlook regularly crashes when trying to open an attachment in an encrypted email. Sometimes I will have to try to open the attachment 3 or 4 times before I'm successful (with Outlook crashing each unsuccessful attempt). If I have any draft emails that have not been sent when Outlook crashes, they are often not autosaved. Please make Outlook more robust with encrypted email.

  13. reminder

    In todays multi-monitor world, the popup dialog for reminders (calendar, tasks, mail reminders, etc) should keep it's state physically so that after dismissing a reminder, it pops up in the same location I put the window the last time. It's too hard to find when you have multiple windows open in multiple monitors.

    This state should persist across application quit and system restart.

  14. Restore full header info for Google based accounts in Outlook for Mac.

    with the latest version of Outlook for Mac, view source does not return the service information in the header. if you connect via an imap account to a google account, it still works. But with the new api to google, you only get the body and sender info. This makes it hard to determine the source of spam and other message by tracing the IP addresses of mx servers that the message went through. google provides this information on their website. so we can still get the info, but this is an extra step. especially when you can still get…

  15. Please bring back support for "linux mailing list" formats

    Sending emails to the linux mailing list in outlook for Mac is virtually impossible today due to not supporting a variety of formatting methods that Linux teams require. These are the three key pieces of feedback for the current Outlook apps:


    1. Do not alter the body of the message in transit and in storage. Keep the body of the message after the headers the same, byte-for-byte (no added or removed whitespace or line wrapping).


    2. Outlook in plain text mode has an option to "indent each line of the original message", but only does so with 4 spaces on the left.…

  16. dismiss a meeting notification after you click "join online" button

    Where a meeting is for Teams or Skype for Business, the meeting alert / notification shows a "join online" button. When I click this button to join the meeting, I want the notification to be dismissed. Current behaviour is that the notification remains on the screen and has to be dismissed manually

  17. Fix the "Candara" font label

    The font listed as "Candara" in the Outlook 365 web interface is not actually Candara--it is Optima. Please label the font correctly and insure that it is widely supported across e-mail platforms.

  18. Let me cancel a date and keep it crossed or greyed out in my Calendar

    It would help me to keep track with my postponed dates if I would be able to rightclick them as "Canceled" or similar.
    Or to be allowed to drag them (e.g. while hitting a button) and therby to copy them to a new time, keeping the original one as "Postponed"

  19. Implement anything on this UserVoice at all

    I really haven't seen much of this UserVoice ever get implemented. I see the same old problems with Outlook on Mac now that I did 4 years ago.

    Until we get connections to Apple calendars and contacts, and Outlook for Mac has any functionality of Outlook for Windows above what it has now, there's just no point in using it. I think we're simply being ignored.

  20. Add a preference option to lock the mailboxes in Favourites, it is very easy to accidentally delete a folder and this is time consuming

    Add ability to lock mailboxes in favourites.

    It is far too easy to accidentally delete a mail box using the current star system (Mac OS X)
