  2. Make folder search algorithm configurable

    The latest update changed the folder search algorithm in the "Move Email to Folder" function from a ending wildcard (abc) to a double wildcard (abc*). Now all searches find multiple matches. Please provide a way to specific which wildcard search you want.

  4. Let me drag the "Junk Mail" folder higher up, near the Inbox

    There is no way to re-order the folder items in the sidebar. It would be very helpful to be able to see if anything was in the "Junk Mail" folder without having to scroll past all of the other folders.

  5. Review resources Outlook is using

    Since version 15.29 Outlook is always keeping my Mac running hot. It is always listed as the application using the most energy. As soon as I close Outlook my fan turns off. And I'm using a brand new MacBook Pro.

  6. Auto-route incoming messages to a conversation in a different folder.

    After I move a conversation out of my inbox to a folder, route new messages that are part of that converation to that folder (unless directly to me).

  10. Allow .ICS calendar invites to create entries in Exchange-managed account calendar instead of only the local account.

    "On My Computer" email is never used in a business environment because it's local. Businesses use Exchange or other services so employees can manage their services across multiple devices. .ICS calendar invites always open in "On My Computer" calendar, which is useless.

  13. I would like to see more CLI in the AutoUpdate for the Macintoshes.

    As an enterprise admin, managing 1000+ Mac users, I would like to be able to use more CLI. I can now set the preferences to automatic download with a mass CL, but would like to send out a script that will kickstart the Autoupdate, if needed.

  14. With the reading pane on the right, keep the inbox list from moving when incoming messages arrive

    When reading email and a surge arrives, the inbox list will jump and move around. This can cause the focused message to fall off the screen. If one isn't careful, an errant mouse click will delete the wrong message.

    I've had messages arrive just as I'm clicking, causing the list to scroll and me to click on deleting a different message than the one I'm viewing.

  15. May I change the order of signatures

    Since we can't make templates <https://outlook.uservoice.com/forums/335538-outlook-for-mac-business/suggestions/16306096-i-suggest-you-make-it-possible-to-create-email-tem> I tend to make several signatures to allow me to quickly send template mails.

    These are ordered FIFO - I want my main signature to be the last on the list, but I can't drag it down. Can I change this in a database or preference or does this function need to be added graphically to the app?

  18. I suggest you make it so you can see attachments full filenames.

    The attachment filenames are truncated so it is impossible to tell which file is which if you have attachments with the same start to the filename.
