  1. add hover text to show full subject in message list

    When hovering over a truncated subject in the message list, I would like to see the full subject displayed in hover text. This should probably be generalized to all the fields in the message list, but the Subject field is the one that's most often an issue for me.

  3. organize folders

    You need to be able to organize folders and move them around. I used outlook for my job when I had a windows computer, and now that I have a MAC it can only be organized alphabetically.

  4. Fix 2 bugs in Contact/Notes view. 1) First 30-ish characters auto delete and have to be retyped. 2) Font sometimes Calibri sometimes Cambria

    Fix 2 bugs.

    1) First 30-ish characters automatically delete themselves. You have to retype them. When you retype, they don't delete and you can continue writing the note. Happens every time.

    2) Minor, but sometimes Notes appear in Calibri and sometimes in Cambria. Weird. Not a huge deal, but I'm sure that's not how you intended it to be.

  5. Reading pane preferences are being reset when using Focused Inbox

    When the new Focused Inbox is set to on, I am finding that the reading pane preferences keep being reset to "below" event though I set them to "off." I had to turn off Focused Inbox to retain my "off' preference.

  7. AutoBCC

    I am very surprised that Outlook got rid of the AutoBCC option. CRM's (for example, Salesforce) have an AutoBCC feature so that you can log incoming and outgoing emails directly to a salesforce account. Without this, it is difficult to track what you are doing between email and CRMs.

  8. Consistent placement of the Trashcan in Message list view.

    Since the delete icon is the only icon that is always used, please move it to the outside of the icon list, I often use the delete to move through messages clearing out junk. It is wasteful to keep having to chase down the trashcan icon.

  9. Make it easier to deselect a message when preview pane is at the bottom of the inbox.

    I want to be able to close the preview pane when I'm done reading a message, so that I just see the list of emails (e.g., in my inbox). If my email list is short, I can click on the white space between the end of the list and the beginning of the reading pane, which returns me to my list with no preview, but that's trickier when the list is longer than one screen length.

  13. remove gridlines

    This "feature" was introduced without prior notification or consent in an update and it is not possible to configure if you do not want them to appear. Now email is much more difficult to read, and there is no option to remove the distracting gridlines. I cannot understand why the Mac versions of office do not have the same option/features as the Windows versions. In Windows you can turn this grid off quite easily, on the Mac version of Outlook, sorry, you are stuck with annoying gridlines.
