  1. Failure to have functionality replacing the "right-click" for a MAC. MACS do NOT have "right-click".

    As I have explained before Right-clicking is NOT an option when using a MAC!!! How does a MAC user rename a folder????

  3. Make the field for selecting emails bigger

    Anything to the left of the sender should tick the circle for further action, not open the email

  5. Sweep is the best. It makes me loyal to Microsoft Outlook

    The best thing about Outlook email is the ability to use sweep to get rid of a hundred emails or move them to a folder with the SWEEP function. It is such a great relief to clean my inbox when it is loaded with hundreds of emails. Thanks. It is the best. I will stay with Microsoft Outlook for that feature alone. No one else has it as far as I can see.

  6. Time input without ":"

    When entering a time, could you parse my input without ":"; ie. 1800 to be 18:00
    This is much faster than bothering to enter the colon

  7. Empty folder when connection is lost

    When internet connection is lost, and you hit "empty folder" in junk folder, then it gives you an error; but as soon as the connection is back alive, then it deletes all messages including the ones you did not see, all at once without any warning.

  8. Scrolling down change is ridiculous

    Put the scrolling down arrow back. going up to bar in order to scroll it back down is ridiculous.

  10. Outlook 365

    Desktop office allows my to pin Tasks into my inbox so that I can track/flag projects that come through email. I'd like to replicate this in outlook 365, is that possible? I would think a task icon next to user account and settings would suffice.

  11. Date Assignment to Task by drag and drop in Email Pane with Calendar and Tasks in To-Do bar.

    When using Taks and Calendar view in Email, drag and drop of a task or email onto a calendar date automatically creates the Task (if not existing yet) and assignes that date as due date.

  15. Needs to be fixed

    The "Select all? feature while in message source no longer works when it did under the previous version of Outlook. The option is available but I end up clicking and dragging to copy.

  17. I Want an Old Function Back!

    I can't make "SORT BY / FROM" as my default viewing. Once I set that way, it stayed that way in previous one.

  20. New e-mail format

    What did you do? My e-mail is soooooooooooo messed up. I was able to group my e-mails by sender which made it so much easier to edit. Now...it will take forever!!! So not cool for the majority of us that are not tech savy!!
