  1. Allow preference be set to 'keep source formatting' when pasting

    Presently copy/ paste replaces formatting with the destination styles. It would be very useful to be able to select 'keep source' as the default rather than the other way around.

  3. Enable Read/Unread for the new "Groups" folders

    Enable Read/Unread for the new "Groups" folders. User cannot currently apply read/unread to a single or multiple emails in those Groups. This makes it very annoying to process through those emails.

  4. always use single-line layout

    I miss the "Always use single-line layout" feature from Outlook for Windows. In Outlook Mac, when the reading pane is on the Right, the message list cannot be single-line.

  5. Stop automatic display of an email in Reading Pane

    Currently when launching Outlook or clicking an email folder to view its contents, Outlook automatically selects the first email in the list and displays its contents in the Reading Pane. The contents of an email SHOULD NOT be displayed in the Reading Pane until an email is clicked on by the user!!!! Entourage 2004/2008 and Outlook 2011 did not do this!!!!

  6. Put the keyboard shortcut to attach files back the way it was before this release. For YEARS, Cmd-E has invoked the file dialog. It's gone!

    Put the keyboard shortcut to attach files back the way it was before this release. For YEARS, Cmd-E has invoked the file dialog. It's gone and there's no replacement! Now, one must navigate to a submenu to invoke the attach files dialog.

  7. feature of converting 24-hour format to 12-hour format in appointment setting

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

    It is bug !!

  10. 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.

  13. 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.

  14. 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.

  16. 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. :)

  17. 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.

  18. 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.

  19. 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.

  20. 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.
