  1. AutoBCC

    I am very surprised that Outlook got rid of the AutoBCC option. CRM's (for example, Salesforce) have an AutoBCC feature so that you can log incoming and outgoing emails directly to a salesforce account. Without this, it is difficult to track what you are doing between email and CRMs.

  2. Consistent placement of the Trashcan in Message list view.

    Since the delete icon is the only icon that is always used, please move it to the outside of the icon list, I often use the delete to move through messages clearing out junk. It is wasteful to keep having to chase down the trashcan icon.

  3. Make it easier to deselect a message when preview pane is at the bottom of the inbox.

    I want to be able to close the preview pane when I'm done reading a message, so that I just see the list of emails (e.g., in my inbox). If my email list is short, I can click on the white space between the end of the list and the beginning of the reading pane, which returns me to my list with no preview, but that's trickier when the list is longer than one screen length.

  4. ribbon

    Starting with Outlook for Mac 15.33 (170409), the ribbon is being auto-expanded when one presses the keyboard shortcut to focus on the search box at the top. Please stop doing this or provide a preference to control this behaviour. Thanks.

  7. remove gridlines

    This "feature" was introduced without prior notification or consent in an update and it is not possible to configure if you do not want them to appear. Now email is much more difficult to read, and there is no option to remove the distracting gridlines. I cannot understand why the Mac versions of office do not have the same option/features as the Windows versions. In Windows you can turn this grid off quite easily, on the Mac version of Outlook, sorry, you are stuck with annoying gridlines.

  12. Add option to remove new grid lines

    The latest update to the Outlook client (15.32) on mac adds horizontal grid lines to the message list (preview pane turned off), but added no discernible option to turn them off. The visual clutter really slows me down and I'm surprised MS would make such a significant, draconian (and completely arbitrary) change to the interface without giving users the option to revert it. Was this even user-tested on customers who had Outlook already configured without the grid lines? Please surface an option to turn them off ASAP.

  15. Allow addition of a location when adding appointments from the calendar view.

    Adding an appointment the two most important pieces of information are 1) Time & 2) LOCATION! My appointments are of varying time and are all over our campus. Forcing me to create an appointment, finish it, then double click it to open up a giant form only to enter a room number is ridiculous.

  17. Improve AutoFormat hyphens and dashes

    I’d like to propose a feature improvement.

    I quite like Word’s (and Outlook’s and other office’s apps) auto-formatting feature (i.e. converting hyphen to en dash, proper quotes, periods etc.).
    Just recently I learned that using en dash is actually wrong in many of the contexts it is used by Outlook/Word. I believe machines are now powerful enough so a bit of AI can be put in place and get the hyphen/en-dash/em-dash/figure-dash to much better place than they are right now.

    It could greatly improve the visual appeal of the text.

    Thank you!

  19. Allow creation of a search folder for mails that are unread or flagged

    On the Windows version, I can create a search folders that shows me all messages that are either unread or flagged. The Mac version does not allow this, as all search criteria are combined with the AND operator. Please allow combination with OR as well.
