  1. Categorize Before Save

    Currently when creating a new appointment, the Categorize Button is Greyed Out until the appointment is Saved. Instead, Categorize should be an option that can be used before final saving.

  2. Really would like a single page view option for Contacts in Outlook for Mac (like the Windows version offers).

    Really would like a single page view option for Contacts in Outlook for Mac (like the Windows version offers). This would make it much easier and faster to move between portions of the contact information and add notes (which I use extensively).

  5. Increase the password character limit in Outlook for Mac - Business

    Seems to be a character limitation in the OLforMac 2016 client. Same passphrase works in Skype and Windows but not in the OL for Mac 2016 client. Shorter passphrase worked, but my new one (36 characters) no longer authenticates me.

  6. Please fix the message editor in Japanese environment.

    Using with macOS 10.12.2.

  7. Make folder search algorithm configurable

    The latest update changed the folder search algorithm in the "Move Email to Folder" function from a ending wildcard (abc*) to a double wildcard (*abc*). Now all searches find multiple matches. Please provide a way to specific which wildcard search you want.

  11. Let me drag the "Junk Mail" folder higher up, near the Inbox

    There is no way to re-order the folder items in the sidebar. It would be very helpful to be able to see if anything was in the "Junk Mail" folder without having to scroll past all of the other folders.

  12. Review resources Outlook is using

    Since version 15.29 Outlook is always keeping my Mac running hot. It is always listed as the application using the most energy. As soon as I close Outlook my fan turns off. And I'm using a brand new MacBook Pro.

  13. I would like to see more CLI in the AutoUpdate for the Macintoshes.

    As an enterprise admin, managing 1000+ Mac users, I would like to be able to use more CLI. I can now set the preferences to automatic download with a mass CL, but would like to send out a script that will kickstart the Autoupdate, if needed.

  14. add find message by RFC 2822 messageID header to applescript dictionary

    Currently, the only way to find a message in outlook is by "open message id". This id is some kind of internal database id, but is NOT consistent across machines. So an AppleScript that takes an email to a TODO list for example with a link to the email, cannot ask Outlook to open a given "message id" (different message opens). It would be so much better if there was an open by the actual message id header value (as per RFC 2822), so that you could open an email consistently between your say laptop and desktop machines.

  15. Pictures Embedded in Meeting Invites

    Outlook for Windows allows you to embed pictures in meeting invites where Outlook for Mac you cannot. If this can be brought up to parity with the Windows platform.

  18. Tying Conversations Together

    There are often multiple e-mail feeds/conversations that come through for the same topic, issue, etc. It would be great to have the ability to tie the conversations together so that additional searches are not needed when a separate e-mail conversation is taking place regarding the same topic.
