  1. move multiple mails between mailboxes via drag and drop

    Dragging and dropping emails from one account to the other is working if a single mail was selected. If multiple mails are selected it nit not possible. This makes it quite hard to manual move a bunch od emails to the Exchange online Archive

    • mark as spam with one click

      I have to mark mails as spam manually. so i have to click on the mail, click on the button "Junk-E-Mail" an then select "Junk-E-Mail". These are 3 actions to mark a mail as spam on outlook for mac. That is really annoying when you have to to that multiple time a day. Wouldn't it be cool if the button "Junk-E-Mail" just mark the selectd mails as spam and the menu of
      - Mark as spam
      - not marked as spam
      - block sender
      - junk-E-Mail Prefs
      were optional?

      • add Read/Unread button to Touch Bar!

        Make an email read/unread in one "smart" button is quite essential, rather than the current option to mark it using the menu bar or use to different keyboard shortcuts for that!
        thanks

          • Please add the ability to change the subject

            Please add the ability to change the original subject of received emails. Background: some senders choose subjects wihich are not very descriptive or i want to add keywords or my own subject, which makes it easier to re-find mails. In Entourage there was such a feature.

            • 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.

                • Warn before sending to external addresses

                  In a corporate environment it is very important we double check before sharing internal email threads with external users / customers.
                  Today we have to manually inspect the email recipients list, and this idea will be a big time saver and prevent mistakes.

                      • Stop opening all previously added shared calendars when I add one new shared calendar

                        When I add a new shared calendar, Outlook for Mac automatically selects every other shared calendar I have previously opened (by ticking all their boxes) thus causing Outlook to try to load all those calendars at once, and thus stalling for many minutes. Ironically the new calendar being added is the only one to not be ticked. I assume this is a bug not the intended mode of operation.

                          • Fix Sorting when Displaying by Category

                            I have always organized email by category as a way to display email. Category by subject or particular action. You used to be able to view by category and have the categories listed first at the top with emails inside each category displaying newest first -- Then emails without a Category were listed directly under those in the NONE category which also displaying Newest first. This is where all incoming email would display (in the NONE category) and you could see all email coming in. Now when you are viewing by category and want categories at the top listed first…
