Please make marking an email as read, unread, or flagged using gestures possible for Mac users. (ie: two finger swipe to the right while hovered over an email marks an email unread)
Good news. Starting in the March production release of Outlook for Mac (version 16.11), you can now customize message list swipe gestures.
Set the swipe left and swipe right gestures to the actions you use most. Choose from Delete, Archive, Mark as Read, Flag, or None.
Please refer to the Outlook Blog on Tech Community for more details:

Thank you for adding the swipe gesture; however, many times when I swipe, the gesture isn't fully registered. I use a lot of swipes throughout macOS, they all work consistently, except for in Outlook.
In order to get the swipe to fully register in Outlook, I have to make a very exaggerated (long) swipe. It's unnatural and much more of a long drag than a swipe/flick (i.e. super frustrating).

Allow user to customize the swipe options in desktop mode.
