Outlook for Mac - Business

Improve search feature 'quick suggestions' behavior

The 'Quick Suggestion' search feature will offer to search for emails from a certain contact when you start typing a contact name.
This is great, but:
1. right now when selecting such a Quick Suggestion this results in a "from: firstname lastname" search
2. search results in this case will not show all emails coming from this person
3. manually seaching (not using quick suggestion) for "from: firstname.lastname@emaildomain.com" do show all emails coming from this person

It would be more intuitive that a Quick Suggestion to search for the emails of a certain person will produce search results that show all emails coming from that person (e.g. a search based on "from: firstname lastname" OR "from: firstname.lastname@emaildomain.com"

Especially because the Quick Suggestion actually shows the email address of the suggested person (see screenshot)
