      • Add "Holiday" to the Calendar.

        Add "Holidays" to the Office 365 for Mac Business version. It seems crazy not to have Holidays showing on a Calendar!

          • Search shortcut for senders

            I frequently want to find all emails from the same person who sent me the current email I'm reading. I should be able to right-click on an email address/contact and select "Search for Emails From/To" that person.

            • May I change the order of signatures

              Since we can't make templates <https://outlook.uservoice.com/forums/335538-outlook-for-mac-business/suggestions/16306096-i-suggest-you-make-it-possible-to-create-email-tem> I tend to make several signatures to allow me to quickly send template mails.

              These are ordered FIFO - I want my main signature to be the last on the list, but I can't drag it down. Can I change this in a database or preference or does this function need to be added graphically to the app?

                • Improved contact selection

                  The highlighted suggested email contact changes once active directory contacts load in. It would be nice if the first contact in the list staid highlighted.

                  • Increase the password character limit in Outlook for Mac - Business

                    Seems to be a character limitation in the OLforMac 2016 client. Same passphrase works in Skype and Windows but not in the OL for Mac 2016 client. Shorter passphrase worked, but my new one (36 characters) no longer authenticates me.

                    • Allow Blocking Sender's domain

                      Outlook 2016 for the Mac currently allows you to Block the sender of an email (right-click on message and select Junk Mail>Block Sender). Very often I will get junk emails from many people at the same organization and would like the ability to right-click on the message, select Junk Mail and select "Block Sender's Domain".

                      Now that Outlook 2016 syncs this info with Office 365 I will sometimes look at my blocked sender's list in O365 and see that it has a ton of addresses in it. This could be reduced/alleviated by being able to block entire email domains.

                      Currently…

                      • With the reading pane on the right, keep the inbox list from moving when incoming messages arrive

                        When reading email and a surge arrives, the inbox list will jump and move around. This can cause the focused message to fall off the screen. If one isn't careful, an errant mouse click will delete the wrong message.

                        I've had messages arrive just as I'm clicking, causing the list to scroll and me to click on deleting a different message than the one I'm viewing.

                              • Provide option to subscribe to all IMAP folders by default

                                When creating an IMAP profile in Outlook 2016, only default folders are visible - Inbox, Drafts, Sent Items, Deleted Items, Junk Mail, and Archive - and all other folders must be subscribed to in order to see them. We would like an option to subscribe to all folders, whether created at the root or below the inbox instead of having to subscribe to each and every folder manually.

                                      • allow folders with sub folders to open when mail is dragged onto the main folder

                                        allow folders that contain sub folders to open when an email is dragged on top of the main folder - outlook used to have this feature and now it's gone...
