  1. 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.

  2. Please add Quick Look and Spotlight support to Outlook.

    Messages in Outlook show up in Spotlight searches as Outlook files without content previews. Viewing Outlook messages in Spotlight should be as easy as previewing other file types (including Word and PowerPoint docs).

  3. Prevent dark mode from changing colors in email messages.

    I had sent a test email from Mailchimp that displayed colors that upon viewing in dark mode had changed from what I had originally selected in my browser. Outlook 16.27 on OS X 10.14.5

  4. search

    Please reinstate the quick refinements for "from:", "to:" and "contains:" to be added to keywords entered into the search box in Outlook for Mac 2016.

    The new predictive algorithm and search suggestions don't work for me at all – sometimes I need to find emails "from X", sometimes I need the ones sent "to X" and sometimes I want emails that "contain X" where X is a person's name, a company, or a product.

    The previous refinements made it fast to find emails and switch the filtering. The new way involves multiple clicks, or setting up saved searches – it's so much…

  5. Be able to create personal notes within an email

    It would be nice to be able to create notes within an email for personal use/reminder.

    The idea is to have an Icon next to the other Trash, Archive and Flag Icons.
    When you click on Notes Icon it pops up and you can make notes or see your notes about that email.

  6. Display the correct symbol for signed and encrypted mails

    Currently all e-mails which are signed, encrypted or signed+encrypted have the lock symbol in the 'attachement' column. Furthermore when writing a new e-mail and select the option to sign the message a notification bar shows up between the subject and the text showing a lock symbol.
    This might be missleading for the user and she might think that the content of a signed e-mail gets encrypted.

  7. Keep email highlighted in the email overview after following a link in the email

    When I select an e-mail in my inbox, it opens in the preview pane. As soon as I follow a link in that e-mail, the e-mail isn't highlighted anymore.

    I expect the email currently in the preview pane to stay highlighted.

    Specs:
    Microsoft Outlook for Mac
    version 16.28
    Office 365 subscription
    Dark mode :-)

  9. Reduce the "You replied to this message on MM/DD/YY, HH:MM AM to a single line

    Currently, every time an email is replied to, a new "You replied to this message..." bar is added to the top of the email. I would request that since the ability to see the conversation history is easily accessible, this be limited to the most recent email.

  11. Allow users to turn off email polling (or make mail not appear at all) on particular accounts

    I need some Google calendars, which have personal appointments, to appear in Outlook, so I don't double-book. But I don't need/want gmail from that account to appear in Outlook, too. I can turn off calendars; I should be able to turn off email, too.

  12. Be able to turn off Notifications on an account-by-account basis.

    I don't need to be pinged for every email in every account. Why not allow per-account notification settings -- including maybe different sounds for each account, or none at all?

  13. Make Page Setup available from the print menu

    In order to print in landscape you need to first go into the page setup menu and change the orientation. If we can make the page setup menu accessible from the print menu, it will make easier for user to navigate.

  14. Don't auto-select first message

    I have my Outlook configured to mark messages as read when they're selected. Unfortunately Outlook always selects the first message so it can be easily marked as read when it shouldn't be. Apple Mail doesn't have this issue so that's what I'm forced to use :-(

  15. make it easy to bulk clear attachment

    Select multiple emails and right click Attachments>Delete and it deletes all attachments in the selected emails and not just the attachments on the email that was last viewed. It is such a slow process to regain email space on the server.

  17. Phishing on Outlook MAC

    I suggest you add a report phishing button to Outlook for MAC. It provides a more seamless user experience between OS’.

  18. Please make outlook remember emails that are 'safe' which contain HTML content.

    In Windows Outlook you can classify emails from known sources as 'safe' without having to add them to your contacts was you have to in Mac version. I dont want to add Cosco or Honda to my contacts, but I will want to receive mailings, and not have to click on 'Download Pictures' every time.

  19. Include removed attachments filenames in search indexes

    I remove large file attachments if they're big files, but I'd still like Outlook search to show me the emails those files were attached to. Helpfully Outlook does show you that a file was removed and gives the filename, so the data is still there. Presumably adding this to what the search indexes should therefore be possible?

  20. 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.
