  1. Separate address books so you don't accidentally send an email from the wrong domain

    I have two companies I’m working for and often when I’m writing a new email, it is being sent from the wrong domain and i accidentally send emails meant for coworkers at one domain from the domain of a different company. It’s dangerous. I'd like to separate address books so when I’m writing an email from domain X, it doesn’t pull up the addresses associated with domain Y. In a hurry I'll make the mistake and the damage is done.

  4. Display message classification

    Exchange has a feature called Message classification which displays a classification on an email in Outlook. This function works properly on Outlook on Windows, but does not function on Outlook on Mac.

  6. Make it easy to block junk

    Spammers change the user name and keep sending junk from the same same domain. To stop spam one needs to block the entire domain. Currently, the process is:


    1. copy the email address

    2. go to settings

    3. go to view more

    4. go to block sender

    Step one is difficult.

    The easy solution is to:

    From the Junk dropdown menu replace "Block" with:
    Block user
    Block domain

  7. Use escape to close a message

    There is a feature in the outlook for windows application (when you press esc it closes the message that is on the screen), but this functionality is not in outlook for macOS. It would be more practical if you had this option in Mac outlook

  9. Can also move sent mails to archive

    Outlook has the function "Archive".

    Unfortunately, this is only possible for mails you receive. (Inbox)
    Why isn't this for sent mail? (Outbox) I don't understand!
    What does that make sense just to archive the receipt and not send mails.
    Only half of it is archived!
    Is then again to search/find in two different places

    Archiving should also be available for sent mails!

  11. rule "does not contain"

    Please include a rule for the mail filter "DOES NOT CONTAIN" a word inside the message body for example.

    Right now I can only specify "DOES CONTAIN" in MS Outlook 16 for MAC

  13. Restore full header info for Google based accounts in Outlook for Mac.

    with the latest version of Outlook for Mac, view source does not return the service information in the header. if you connect via an imap account to a google account, it still works. But with the new api to google, you only get the body and sender info. This makes it hard to determine the source of spam and other message by tracing the IP addresses of mx servers that the message went through. google provides this information on their website. so we can still get the info, but this is an extra step. especially when you can still get…

  14. dismiss a meeting notification after you click "join online" button

    Where a meeting is for Teams or Skype for Business, the meeting alert / notification shows a "join online" button. When I click this button to join the meeting, I want the notification to be dismissed. Current behaviour is that the notification remains on the screen and has to be dismissed manually

  15. Fix the "Candara" font label

    The font listed as "Candara" in the Outlook 365 web interface is not actually Candara--it is Optima. Please label the font correctly and insure that it is widely supported across e-mail platforms.

  16. Include the folder names in the reading pane

    With mails showed as conversation or when I have the result of a search, I would like to see in which folder each message is stored directly in the reading pane.
    I know that it is possible to see the folder name in the window title when the message is opened in a window, but this is not so practical.
    Also, the functionality is available opening Outlook on the web, so why not to include it in Outlook for Mac? Thanks

  17. Add a preference option to lock the mailboxes in Favourites, it is very easy to accidentally delete a folder and this is time consuming

    Add ability to lock mailboxes in favourites.

    It is far too easy to accidentally delete a mail box using the current star system (Mac OS X)

  18. Option to disable .msg file export in Outlook for Windows

    I know this is not strictly a Mac requirement, but since you already declined to implement .MSG file support on the Mac, there should be an option to stop (or make more difficiult) the creation of such files on Outlook for Windows. I frequently have to deal with .msg attachments because I cannot convince my thousands of co-workers to not use this file format. Please make the default on Windows to save mails in an interchangeable format.

  19. Add the actual date in the Reading Pane for "today" emails

    I saw this post on the web, and I realize I too want to see the date, even it if is "Today". Sometimes I just don't know what day it is, and I look at my Inbox to confirm the date - BUT now all Today emails are dated "Today". Can we then change the date in the Reading Pane from "Today" to the actual date? It still would show Today in the Inbox, but be more specific in the Reading Pane.
