  1. add hover text to show email address

  2. 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.

  3. Add possibility attach files to calendar invitations

    It would be good to add things like PDFs, as sometimes agendas come in that form.

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

  7. 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.

  8. 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.

  10. Offline emails "sent" date & time are shown with the email creation date not the actual sent date in Yahoo and Gmail IMAP

    When you create an email in offline mode and press 'send" as soon as you finish the email, but connecting to the internet sometime later, using Gmail or Yahoo IMAP settings, the emails will be sent with the date of creation, not with the actual date and time when it was sent. If you create an email on Sunday, but you send it on Tuesday, the recipient will receive it with Sunday's date. It causes a lot of confusion.

  11. Allow images in appointments (or process HTML!)

    Outlook 2016 Mac - the body of the appointment field is very limited in what types of information it will accept and/or process. Often the easiest way to drop in a large amount of information is to put an image. It can be dropped and/or pasted in. But when you try to save it, it says it can't store that type of object and doesn't save (although it helpfully offers to open the default profile folder location for me!?).

    I've seen some crazy workarounds for this problem since Outlook 2011, and requests for this functionality since then as well. It…

  13. Auto Numbering Formatting

    When using auto numbering function on Outlook 2016 Mac, the font of the numbering changes after you sent out the email even though I've formatted them with a consistent font. This is really bothering me, please do something about it! Thanks!

  14. Make standard offer/ deal tekst template in Outlook Customer Manager. With this template its easier to make offers to customers

    Make standard offer/ deal tekst template in Outlook Customer Manager. With this template its easier to make offers to customers and if controllable e.g. the agenda you never lose control. It would be nice when there are flags, due date etc.

  15. Fix multilevel sorting in contacts

    In outlook for Windows, contacts can be sort in two steps:
    first by category
    second by last name.

    With this the contacts are still in alphabetical order but first in categories like "Provider", "Personal" etc.

  16. Assign a keyboard shortcut for “new email from template”!

    Please assign a keyboard shortcut or at least make a button for “new email from template”! It is a great new “feature” to have templates for the Mac version, but no one wants to wander around menu items to get an email started! Thank you!!

  18. Word Suggestions similar to seen in Pages or Apple Mail would be useful

    Word Suggestions similar to seen in Pages or Apple Mail would be useful on touch bar for all Office 365 applications.

    This will speed up tying.

    remove word suggestions in To or CC of Outlook mail. That is not useful at all.

  19. copy email to a user created folder when sending

    This suggestion would be a toggle ("on" or "off" user option) If "on" when sending email have a pop-up open showing all Outlook folders. The pop-up window will open just after the sent key is pressed. User will choose the folder the sent email will be COPIED to. Copy not move. It is a pain to go back to the sent folder and copy emails to appropriate user created folders.

  20. Add ability to send invite as attachment

    Need the ability to send invites at attachments rather than adding large distributions to the "to" field. Especially when people can choose which meeting time they want to go to (like a series of training meetings)
