  1. Sync local contacts from Apple Contacts app

    EWS is blocked for OS X at most companies because it presents the potential issue of data leakage.

    Many companies are taking advantage of Intune's conditional access, but until conditional access supports EWS, many companies disable EWS. Companies do this because EWS sidesteps conditional access when abled and allows all email/calendar/contacts to be downloaded to a devices without any way for the company to enforce security policies simultaneously.

  6. Tying Conversations Together

    There are often multiple e-mail feeds/conversations that come through for the same topic, issue, etc. It would be great to have the ability to tie the conversations together so that additional searches are not needed when a separate e-mail conversation is taking place regarding the same topic.

  8. Add delegation for Online (Skype/Lync) Meetings

    Right now, delegates cannot create meetings on behalf of their boss/manager/delegator. Please add that functionality so that admins can schedule Online Meetings on behalf of their bosses. :)

  9. Fix quoting for HTML and plain text replies.

    Outlook for Mac has been hobbled for some time by not providing proper quoting for plaintext (internet-standard > prefixing) and by having HTML quoting styles that don't support in-line replies. Windows Outlook supports both, PLEASE fix!

  13. Calendar scrolling

    I expect the calendar widget to support horizontal scrolling to get to the next week, and the vertical scrolling to get to the next month in month mode - this is what other calendar maps support. A nice-to-have might be pinch-zoom to change between day/week/month view.

  14. Strikethrough calendar events

    For cancelled appointments in the Calendar, I would like the option to leave the event in the calendar, but strikethrough the event. I would like a method to keep track of meetings that occurred, but I didn't attend VS. meetings that were cancelled. Strikethrough the event would be used for keeping track of my meeting attendance.
