  1. Add feature to highlight complete Emails beside category flags

    When receiving emails which I'm storing for later use (review, follow-up, important info) I would prefer them to stand out of the regular. So, when I'm looking for that specific email, I can spot her more easily without opening numerous others emails who have a similar search text element.

  2. I suggest a search field popping up when filing emails. It is very useful in the iPhone App. Current workflow cumbersome.

    The current work flow for filing emails in the Outlook for Mac App, especially if the target folder is not on the short list. Too many clicks to select the target folder.
    In addition, if the folder should be firstly created, this is also nt supported (but on the version Office365 on the web).
    A search field for typing and then quickly selecting would be nice.

  3. banded read pane

    Hello there, I'd like to use outlook, but I find a plain white reading pane background difficult to use. Today I use thunderbird and it bands alternative emails - which (for me) makes distinguishing between emails much easier. I this possible ?
    Thanks

  4. Reply from the Reading Pane

    I'd love to be able to compose a reply from the reading pane. When I currently hit "Reply," it opens a new window.

    I used this feature often when I had a Windows PC, and really miss it now that I'm using Outlook on a Mac.

  5. cc bcc

    Is there a solution how to make the cc-fields visible as a standard ? (We have the problem both on Mac and PC).
    It is really annoying that you cannot see the cc-field until you click the "more information" button. Hope you can help.

  8. Add Sent box rules ability on server side

    It would be really handy to be able to be able to create a sent box rule on the server side. Presently you can have a sent box rule on the client side within the Windows version of outlook, but there isn't even that option in Outlook for Mac. The sooner the better please guys and girls.

  9. I suggest you add better Outlook integration with Planner

    there is no easy way to add an email from outlook to a planner task as a attachment. An option in outlook to add to plan, attach to planner task would be great.

  10. Allow the ability to select multiple messages when sorted by from without having to expand the list.

    If you set the sort by from all the messages are listed unexpanded from each sender. If select the sender you are not able to do any actions (delete / move / archive) you have to expand each sender first and then manually select each message. It means it takes a huge amount of time if you have select 500+ messages from one sender. On PC Outlook you can select all messages from multiple senders very easily.
    I and my staff have lost many hours of productivity when cleaning up mailboxes due to this functionality missing.

  12. Quote character instead of indentation

    Indentation is not enough for quoting email text. Not having a clear character as ”>“ (as plain text standard) or “|” (as apple mail) holds me from using Outlook on my Mac. Although it is a really goog email client.
    Come on, please!

  14. Send Out of Office replies to a domain

    I have the option to send OOO replies to all or to my contacts. I would also like the option to send OOO to any user of a particular domain. I have customers who may not be in my contacts list but I know the domain name that someone would be sending from.This would give better control than sending to all external users.

  15. Add word count when drafting emails

    It will be great if a word count is added to the bottom of the screen for outlook for Mac users (similar to Microsoft Word). This will be a very effective tool in making all users respect everyone's time by being short and precise.

  16. Set signature via Configuration Profile

    Allow global signature setting via configuration file (sent from MDM). This would mean my organisation could mandate signature styles.

  17. To be able to send windows compatible hyperlinks to files.

    When I send hyperlinks to files from Outlook from Mac Windows users cannot open it, due to the different nature of hyperlink creation of the two OS. I'd like to be able to create a hyperlink to a file on a Mac that Windows users can open.
