  1. Change the way emails are displayed.

    Replies to emails should not display separately. It takes up way too much space in my inbox. The email thread should just show as a new email when someone replies but on the same line.... if that makes sense.

  4. add an option to choose the timezone in outlook calander manually

    The timezone in calendar is set as UTC by default, which can not be changed. I suggest that you can manuelly choose the timezone you want to use in Outlook calendar. This prevents the annoying messages of different time zones in outlook.

  5. Restore the Check Names button with IMAP/LDAP Directory Services

    Since the Mac Outlook 15.17 version was released, the Check Names button is no longer available with IMAP/LDAP Directory Service email accounts. Every subsequent update through the current 15.22.0 (160506) has the same problem. This Check Names button is grayed-out and unavailable for name resolution against an LDAP DS. The keyboard command Ctrl+Cmd+C also does not work. Check Names appears to only be available with Exchange accounts now.

    This issue has not been resolved from versions 15.17 through 15.33 (170315) and affects all my business clients on Mac.

  6. thread mails using In-Reply-To header

    Many mailing lists set the In-Reply-To header, to indicate that the mail is a reply to another. However outlook does not seem to respect this header, and thus the mail thread is not correctly detected. When using alternative programs, for example Apple's Mail.app, the mails are shown correctly threaded.

  7. Add the ability to copy the task list for pasting in another program

    In Outlook for Windows, you can select multiple Tasks in the Task List, click Copy, then paste the list into another tool (e.g. Excel). Doing this is really handy for quickly generating a list of tasks to save or send elsewhere.

  9. Single Sign On support for Office365

    I'd like to see Office 365 support SSO/ADFS authentication. Other enterprise applications (e.g. Cisco Jabber) have incorporated ADFS based authentication. Ideally, in the controlled enterprise infrastructure, clients log into the computer with their AD based credentials, launch Office365, and are automagically authenticated with their O365 license with the credentials they've logged into the computer with.

  10. Make the message list clearer

    All the messages on the list look the same; new emails should be in bold and emails should be colored by category as they were in 2011. As it is now, different messages are not easily visually differentiated.

  15. Hide/Delete Groups Folder in Outlook

    Hello.
    Will you solve this in future? https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/msoffice/forum/msoffice_outlook/hidedelete-groups-folder-in-outlook/725fc11a-841f-4702-9815-886ad8432aae

    It's great that Microsoft wants to add new features to Outlook, and I'm sure many will get a lot of use out of Groups, but as a rule any new feature that impacts a display (such as the folder pane) should be able to be disabled, or at a minimum, hidden.

    Please, if you giv the users new feature, giv them choice to use or not.
    Thank you

  16. All optional removal "Online Meeting" button

    We use another online meeting solution instead of Skype, but still use Skype for IM. It would be nice to be able to remove the "Online Meeting" button to prevent users from adding a Skype meeting.

  20. Align create meeting feature with Windows

    Windows: creating a new meeting invite from an email adds the entire email thread to the meeting invite.

    Mac: using this feature removes the from, sent, to, and subject from the body of the meeting invite, making it look like you are the one who wrote the last email in the thread.
