    I want to be able o utilize add-ins that allow me to insert frequently used phrases. This is available to PC Outlook 365 users, but not Mac Outlook 365 users. Please change!

  2. Extend the contact recommendation overlay

    Whenever I choose the recipients for my mails or events in outlook for mac I cannot see the end of the address. The overlay showing relevant contacts cuts of the recommendations to early so that I cannot see the toplevel domain.
    Since out company has divided mail accounts and calendar accounts it is really hard to find the right recipient (either @example.de or @example.biz) on modern screens it shouldn't be a problem to show the whole address.

  3. I suggest you allow add-ins when using a an email template for the Mac version of Outlook.

    Currently, if a template is opened add-ins become disabled. On my PC it works.

    I have checked with support to make sure it wasn't my system or setup and they informed me it was not possible. Here is a screencast of it NOT working.

  4. search for meeting invites

    Provide the ability to see only meeting invites in Mail. You can't search for them (meetings aren't a search item).

  5. email

    Bring back ability to select (and therefore be able to copy) email message date. As of update 15.39, it's no longer possible to select and copy the date :|

  6. Allow hover for Calendar appointments again

    In previous versions of Outlook you could hover over an appointment in the Calendar and see the meeting details. Now you have to click it and you get a balloon with the details. Please restore the original behaviour as its far faster.

  7. Have Calendar reminders pop up when Outlook is not open

    In previous version of Outlook, reminders popped up even when Outlook was not running. This meant that one could focus on a task but not have email disturbing you, yet still get reminded 15 mins before that next meeting you planned on going to.

  9. Allow sharing contact subfolders. Users don't want to share all their contacts with their colleagues.

    Contact sharing is currently not working with contact subfolders. Our users need this functionality to choose what contact they want to share with their colleagues

  10. Integrate with Time Machine

    Please add integration for Time Machine Backups. Having the ability to restore mails by just clicking on Time Machine would be a major win. Standard Apple Mail provides the ability to navigate through the mails and restore lost or deleted mails within program window, but unfortunately Outlook does not have this feature at the moment.

  11. rule

    Please allow rules to be applied to the Junk email folder. Currently, if emails are classified as SPAM and put into the Junk folder, then rules are not applied. This has 2 negative effects:
    1. A rule that automatically deletes emails from known bad senders or domains does not work.

    2. A rule that automatically identifies known good senders that end up in SPAM for whatever reason, also do not work.

  13. Ability to manage PST files wherever I want. for free space in disc

    Important to choose in which folder (like an SD little card) to save or put the mail files, Outlook for mac does not allow to do this, it is practical to leave free space in internal memory of the pc. (this can be done in windows).

  14. Way to laggy

    This is way to laggy compared to the MAC 2016 version. Connection to Gmail is very slow.

  15. BUG: "Focused" view of Inbox ignored with filters

    If I'm looking at my "Focused" Inbox (a feature I like, thanks!) and then select a filter, say "Unread", all of a sudden my "Other" Inbox messages are displayed. Oops. I consider this a bug, when I filter, I want to see less, not more. It would be acceptable if "Focused Messages" was one of the filter options and I defaulted to match what view I started the search from. In this case, it would probably be best to expose a new name for this filter and allow the values: focused/other/all.

  17. Feedback: Updating Calendar and BUG to report

    I have been using Outlook for Mac for some time now. There was a recent update that enabled me to add/delete invitees to meetings and only send updates to those added/deleted. Seems that has gone away again. Would REALLY like to ahve that back as I am almost acussed of spamming when i am making regular updates to attendees.

    The new bug I have noticed ocurred today. I cancelled a meeting, and one of the attendees did not get the notification. It's a recurring invite and only cancelled the one ocurrence. I went into the series, and looked at attendee…

  19. add filter bar on top of folders list

    I have a large and deep hierarchy of folders. Navigating them is very painful, especially when trying to move mails from the inbox to those folders. it would be great if there was a filter textbox on the top, where I can enter a portion of the folders name and the list is filtered accordingly

  20. Enable S/MIME Support for Linked Gmail Accounts

    Would love to see the Gmail/Google Apps integration (when it goes mainstream) have the ability to support S/MIME certificates (similar to the Windows support).
