  1. email attachment tool (local store) with dedupe

    Consider an email attachment tool that strips out all email attachments (from both sent and received mail) when run manually or on a schedule. Tool should leave a pointer behind. Attachment repository (local) must dedupe. Will increase performance and save lots of local and back-end server space.

  2. Bring It Back

    I am using v15.36 (170702). When I try and move an email from my Inbox to a folder I have created on my computer I am NOT provided a visual clue that I am hovering above the folder I am interested in using. This was something which was available in the 'stable' build.

  9. 24 Hours clock to 12 Hour AM/PM time conversion in calendar setting

    When user input 24-hour format time (ex. 15:30),
    It does not change to 12-hour time (ex. 3:30 PM). But It changes to “1”

    So many people unintentionally enter an appointment at the wrong time when using 24-hour time representation
    In windows, “15:30” changes to “3:30 PM” automatically.

  10. Contact's Information from Exchange

    We use Exchange for email.
    While reading an email, you can "hover" over the senders name and get a pop up info window to appear. If you open the contact information, you get a new window that allows you to create a new contact in your local address book.

    I would like to be able to have Outlook pull the senders info. from Exchange. Like there title, phone number and such. (and NOT create a new contact for me that is basically blank)

  12. Quit using ActiveX for activating Contact Sharing in Sharepoint

    Sharepoint is great for connecting address lists with Outlook. But Mac users cannot activate this funktion, because it is only possible with Microsoft Internet Explorer.

    Please use another technology for activating the button in Sharepoint.

  14. zoom

    There should be single zoom option for both incoming and outcoming and preview mails. And it should be possible to mark setting as default. The zoom level should be applied to calendar as well.

  15. Archive Folder renaming and/or reassignment

    Allow users (or Exchange administrators) to rename and/or reassign the Archive folder in Outlook for Mac on Office 365 with Exchange. System currently allows for a one time only set-up on first use (with no room for error). Once set system does not allow corrections/changes.

  16. Drag to re-size images in mail messages

    Currently, you can only drag to resize images in your mail messages when the message window is wider than the image itself. This suggestion is to create parity with the Windows client by allowing users to scroll to an image corner and drag to resize that image when the width of the message window is less than the image width.

  17. Fix Subscribed Calendars

    Subscribed Calendars disappear if you lose connection to the exchange server in Outlook 2016 Mac. You have to go back to public folders and subscribe to each one again.

  18. Inboxes are task lists - enable scheduling & reordering of email

    Just like in Outlook for iOS, I'd like to be able to Schedule email so that a message disappears to a separate folder, reappearing in my inbox at the time configured. This is most likely to be contingent on using Exchange Online.

    One of the best, complimentary features in Dropbox's 'Inbox' was dragging email to re-order - just like tasks in To Do or Wunderlist. This made an inbox work just like a Task List.

    A great combination of features.
