  1. Make the Mac version the SAME as the PC version with same tools & options

    Please make all functionalities available in the PC version also available for Macs. Eg. Conditional Formatting, Send and File, allowing us to change our mail view to also incorporate things like the calendar so everything is in the same view! I know these are PC-enabled functionalities but Mac users need the same tools as everyone else! We do business the same way as everyone else within the organization and there seems to be a MASSIVE disparity between the PC suite vs the Mac suite of capabilities in the 2016 Outlook.

    I also find it highly inconvenient that the program doesn't…

  3. Add Outlook to Share Menu (Extensions), for Mac

    Have Outlook added to the 'share' menu (under Extensions) in System Preferences. It's time-consuming, and annoying to constantly have to drag files to Outlook — as opposed to being able to sending them via Outlook under the 'share' option. This is a must for businesses, that email a lot of attachments. Thanks.

  6. CalDAV support

    Support for internet calendar feeds. The main use case is the ability to see conference schedules in Outlook. For example, I attended WPC and Ignite this year and had to keep switching back and forth between Outlook and the conference website/apps to determine my true schedule.

    We need more specific examples of what you’re trying to accomplish from those who have voted for this feature. Are you trying to integrate with a third party application and just need CalDav support? Or are you trying to access your calendar hosted on a different service like iCloud or Yahoo? Please comment with your specific needs.
    Thank you for your continued participation in making Outlook for Mac better.

  8. Add Ignore Thread / Conversation

    The windows client lets you select email threads and ignore all future responses to it. There's no reason mac users shouldn't have this option. I would love to ignore all threads involving my coworkers cats or memes on my mac client, but I can't. I'm forced to live with their cats and cat meme threads.

  9. Calendar and task-list in main-screen of outlook

    At the moment calendar and task-list just can be used in separate screens. It would be very useful to implement both features (calendar & task-list) in the main screen of outlook, where mail view and folder structure is located. Windows-version of outlook already delivers this function by a so called "popup"-function, so please make it possible for mac-users, too. thanks.

  10. 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. Support for Apple iCloud calendar

    It's extremely important to sync Calendar App with Outlook calendar to let me use Outlook for Mac instead of Mail App.

  17. Make Ribbon/Toolbar configurable

    The quick access toolbar and the ribbon bar need to be configurable.
    They contain buttons which are never used (e. g. "Print" – who prints out emails?!) or buttons are inconveniently placed.

  18. Add a delay rule to all outgoing emails

    We would like to have an option to create a rule to delay all outgoing email, like in Outlook for Windows.
    Thye idea is to have a small time to cancel the sending if there is something wrong.

    You can delay individual messages, but you cannot add a rule to "auto-delay" X time any email you send.

  19. Add "Recall this message" function and support message recalls from Windows clients

    I'd like to be able to use my Outlook for Mac - Business votes for this feature better described herehttps://outlook.uservoice.com/forums/293343-outlook-for-mac/suggestions/8012202-add-recall-this-message-function-and-support-mes

    "Add "Recall this message" function so that you can recall messages sent in error. Also support message recalls that are sent from Outlook for Windows users - at the moment message recalls just come through as an email but don't automatically remove unread emails like Outlook for Windows does."
