  1. Where did the unified inbox go

    What happened to my unified inbox? I check 3 inboxes all day, use this view exclusively. Not very happy to see it leave.

  3. Support for O365 Add-Ins

    These are 3 ideas, so we will be splitting them.
    Outlook for Mac PM Team

    Bullet #2 is talking about O365 add-ins which is currently being worked on.

    --- Original description below ---
    1) remove the "my day" as the default right column in the calendar view. This is redundant.

    2) Please include the other old ribbon options in the new toolbar that enterprises may have installed such as "reply with meeting poll" "send recognition", "report email" (used in corp environments for phishing, etc).

    3) As many have requested for years, please add the ability for Mac users to reply…

  4. Move the send button to the top bar

    It would be helpful to either completely move, or at least add a send button to the top bar when composing an email. When all of the actions except send are at the top it seems quite odd and confusing to have to go to the very bottom to actually send a message. Another idea is to possibly shrink the composure box so it isn't so far away.

  7. List of recently used folders for Move

    Please restore the list of recently used folders that drops down from the Move folder. If I have to manually choose a folder every time I click that button, it's actually easier to drop the email to a folder in the sidebar.

  8. Need email "View Source" back

    "View Source" was an important tool for looking at the source (headers, body, servers, etc.) of a received message. It was in the context menu (right-click) but is no longer there. I could not find it in the menus either.

  10. Tab key while Composing Email

    After pressing the tab key to go out of the Subject field of a new email, please focus on the body of the email, not the Font and font size.

    Current tab-key sequence: To --> Subject --> Font --> Font Size --> Body
    Suggested sequence: To --> Subject --> Body

  12. Compact view that shows more emails without scrolling when preview is on the right

    The email summary on the left has a lot of visual noise and white space around email entries. As a user, I want to be able to scan my inbox, but with all the UI chrome I can only see 10-12 entries without scrolling. This is despite 'small' font selected.

    Outlook should have a compact view (even when preview on the right is open) that allows 3-4x more emails without scrolling. The one line summary is nice ,but should be optional. the whitespace above and below the ruled line should be minimized and eliminated.

    The compact layout should also adjust…

  14. Snooze / Schedule emails please!

    Simple. Please implement Snooze / Schedule of emails.

    Super frustrating to have resort to going to the iOS app to do this.

  18. Easy was to toggle Sidebar

    There is no easy way to toggle the Sidebar, when extended/open, you need to go to the view menu but once collapsed/closed. there's a nice icon to extend it again.
    This icon should always be visible to the user.
