  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.

  4. 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.

  5. 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!

  8. 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.

  10. Add missing attachment reminder

    It's called "Warn me when I send a message that may be missing an attachment" and enabled for literally all Outlook versions. See https://support.office.com/en-US/article/Mail-settings-30C69A79-EFC6-42D2-B740-4BF1C1F8A01C

  11. Remove "From" field or remove send-as list

    When you add a shared calendar to Outlook 2016, the calendar/person also appears in the "From" dropdown menu when composing a new email. This is confusing for many users.

  12. Show the recipient's email addresses not just the name.

    Outlook often picks up the wrong email address for my contacts and uses those when I type the person's name as a mail recipient. For example Wunderlist notifications. Too many times I've sent the email to the wrong address. Please give me a chance to notice the address is wrong before sending.

  14. Add ability to snooze

    Add ability to snooze messages (i.e schedule messages to come back to the top of your Inbox). Many modern clients support this and it is actually already part of Outlook for iOS. If added, this should be available to use as one of the swipe gestures.

  15. Limit offline - cached mail

    Limit the amount of mail to keep offline, like in the PC version where we can set a date range. We constantly have problems with users with large mailboxes needing to resync giant mailboxes all the time. In the age of gmail, its crazy to tell people they need to wait to sync 40GB of email before Outlook will be usable... for the 2nd time this month

  16. multiple language

    working with multiple language in outlook for mac is a real nightmare. We are a global company dealing daily with email in at least 2 languages and often 3. For every single mail we write, since there is no smart language identification, we do need to write email, select the contact and go to language to switch the languages - which is ridiculous. Word detects the language in few words, and even writing an email on smartphone today has this feature.

  17. Add support for team calendars

    One of the biggest things I miss in Outlook 2016 for Mac vs the Windows version is that when I go into calendar view I don't see my team members, nor do I see a way to add them or anyone else in my organization.
    In Windows I can add individuals in my organization whose names then appear in the sidebar under the 2 months displayed (where the "categories" currently are in the Mac version). I can just check the boxes next to their names and their schedules show up next to mine. Makes it much easier to find free…

  18. Allow group by subject, sort by date, outside of conversations

    I would like to be able to select: arrange by subject, newest on top, show in groups. This would work just like arrange by conversations, newest on top, show in group, except it would work for messages that have the same subject but are not in a conversation.

    Here's the use case: my corp wiki sends me a message whenever a page I'm watching is updated. There's a lot of these. The subject is always: "[Wiki] title-of-the-page-that-was-updated". So when someone saves frequently while working on a page I get a lot of messages with the same subject, but they are…

  20. Allow for customization of the Mac powerbook Touch Bar!

    I wish I could customize the Touch Bar for Outlook. Other applications allow for customization, so why not Outlook? It would be great if I could place the icons I use most, in a convenient location.
    Thanks!
