  1. Client-side Junk Mail Filtering for Mac

    The Junk Mail feature in Outlook does not connect to the server so it does not mark future emails from the same sender as spam. Currently I have to use OWA for my junk mail filtering.

  5. Send when Connected

    The windows client has an option to "send immediately when connected" - I've discovered several people, mostly executive or customer facing teams, were using this in Windows to queue up emails to be sent, then make any last minute changes if needed. They would then use the ribbon button "Send All" to send all emails waiting in the Outbox.
    This would be a great feature to have in Mac Client to prepare, and send emails and have them ready to go when I choose, instead of saving them all as Drafts.

  6. Stop asking if I want to turn off absent notifications

    Whenever I have out of office turned on and I open Outlook, I get asked if I want to turn off out of office. No, I don't. And I would really love Outlook to stop asking everytime.

  8. Ability to load email images per sender

    I'd like the ability to add senders to a list that will allow images to be automatically loaded in their emails. I don't want to have to add a sender to my address book for this to work. Basically, I'm looking for a feature that Gmail has. :)

  9. Print search folder similar to windows version, Example Print the list of Follow up headers not individual emails.

    Allow to print the mail search folder, this functionality is standard in windows version. For example: To print list of follow up mail items and not the entire email, only the list of items.

  10. One-click unread toggle

    On the Windows version, a blue bar on the left in the message list shows the (un)read status of the email. With one click there, you can toggle between the states. There should also be a one-click toggle on the Mac version of the email list.

  11. add shortcut to toggle through open email windows

    Right now there is only a shortcut to toggle through all open Outlook windows (command + ~), but I often want to toggle just between several open mails, say to copy something from one mail and paste it into another, without going to Outlook-Window and click on the mail I am looking for.

  12. Add option to set maximum attachment size for IMAP/POP accounts

    Please add an option to set the maximum size for attachments like in the Windows version of Outlook (Registry value MaximumAttachmentSize). This would be helpful to handle internal large messages and to adopt mail size to corporate constraints.

  13. Keep my page layout settings in Outlook so I don't have to reset it each time I want to print something

    Keep my page layout settings in Outlook so I don't have to reset it each time I want to print something. The default it keeps resetting to is portrait, but I always use landscape.

  14. Make the font (and size) for plain-text emails user-settable

    A lot of emails (especially automated emails from internal systems) are sent as "plain text".

    Right now these are displayed in tiny Times New Roman, which makes them hard to read, especially data that uses the monospaced nature of "plain text" for formatting, like lining up columns of data.

    Outlook for Mac should allow the user to select the font and size to be used when reading (as well as replying to!) plain text emails.

  15. 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.

  17. 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.

  18. 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.

  19. 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.
