      • Add support for Mark Up (macOS Extension)

        Mark Up in Mail.app is very useful. It would be great to have this in Outlook to mark up items directly w/o having to use Preview to mark them up.

                • Allow deleting messages from O365 Groups

                  The Windows client as well as OWA allow O365 group "owners" to right click and Delete messages. This is important to keep the group clean & organized.

                  The Mac client does NOT allow messages to be deleted. Please add this critical feature.

                  • Delete appointments silently

                    When deleting an appointment, Outlook for OS X sends a declined message to the meeting creator, even if the meeting/appointment has passed.

                    This is inconsistent with Outlook for Windows; in Outlook for Windows if you delete an appointment it does not send a notification.

                    I would like Outlook for OS X to be consistent with Outlook for Windows on this item.

                    Thank you.

                    • Make autocomplete of addresses favour the people you actually email

                      I work for a large company with a big directory of people. However, I only ever really need to send emails to a dozen or so different addresses.

                      For some reason Outlook doesn't autocomplete from my address book, it defaults to the company directory.

                      For example, when I try to send an email to my colleague Adam, I type Adam and the autocomplete selects some other Adam that I've never heard of rather than the one I email everyday.

                      Surely it would make sense to select the 'Adam' that I email most?

                      • Enable "Next after delete" option

                        Outlook for Windows has the ability to move to either the next oldest or the next newest message after deleting a message. Mac needs that capability. Currently you can only move to the next oldest message. If you have a large inbox, and like your current messages on top, it would be more convenient to start at the oldest message, and after you delete/move a message, for it to move up to the next newer message.

                        • Make display of all-day events in daily or weekly view more flexible

                          It seems that the display area for viewing of all-day events in the daily or weekly view is fixed in (maximum?) size. This leads to the problem that on my computer the maximum number of all-day events is limited to 14. In case this number is exceeded, I simply cannot view all events but only 14 of them. The use case is parallel view of several calendars.

                          I propose to make this area scrollable and/or allow to change its size.

                                    • Tying Conversations Together

                                      There are often multiple e-mail feeds/conversations that come through for the same topic, issue, etc. It would be great to have the ability to tie the conversations together so that additional searches are not needed when a separate e-mail conversation is taking place regarding the same topic.

                                      • Automapping Shared Mailboxes

                                        Please support automapping for shared mailboxes in Outlook 2016 for Mac. Having shared accounts automatically add themselves for our users would improve their experience.

                                        Additionally, according to support agents, this feature is required for a shared mailbox to automatically send and receive mail.

                                        • allow "Send as Distribution Group", such as Outlook for Windows does.

                                          Outlook for Mac is not able to send out email as (or on-behalf) a Distribution Group, and always got error message with meaningless error code. However, Outlook for Windows is able to use a Distribution Group as the "From" to send out email long long time ago. This is a very important function for a team who facing users, for example Customer-Support Team or Operation Team.
