  1. Add back support for any IMAP Account

    As of the June 8, 2020 release you only support Microsoft and Google mail accounts. Seriously? Please add back support for any standard IMAP account. This change makes this Mac version pretty much useless if you don't have one of those mail accounts.

  2. Make it possible to create local folders "on my computer" to save email to. Previous versions allowed this.

    In the current version of Outlook for Mac, users can create folders "on my computer" to organise/drag/drop specific emails into. This functionality is not currently working in New Outlook for Mac.

  8. conversation settings sent

    Please give us the option to turn off seeing Sent emails in conversation view. I can't stand seeing sent emails in a conversation view. If I want to find a sent email, I'll go to Sent Folder.

  14. Zoom meeting

    When double clicking on calendar to create meeting, there's no toggle or add-in for Zoom meeting. Only toggle for Team meeting is shown. The Zoom add-in is available when you create meeting using New Event button when clicking on "...". However, it would be nice to have the Zoom toggle there in addition to the Team toggle.

  15. Fix ICS importing in "New Outlook"

    I attempted to import an ICS file in New Outlook. I get a view of the calendar item, but no way to "save" it to my calendar. Also, if i "edit" the calendar item, I then get a "Save" button but saving the item doesn't actually reflect on the calendar in "New Outlook". Had to switch back to old outlook to see the item.

  16. Return the ability to remove an attachment

    The options with attachments are now Preview, Open, Save and the previous ability to save an attachment, then delete from the email so you can then save the email was really useful. You could then put the files (attachments where you wanted them) and also keep the email without the attachment. The loss of this is a major issue as it multiplies the size of your Mail folders.

  18. Use native contacts on macOS

    The recent update enabled contacts however they are exactly the same as always, I still cannot access my apple contacts from within Outlook which means there is no way to store my iPhone and Outlook contacts in one place (I sync these across from iOS too)

  19. Allow easy copping of an event in calendar via option+drag

    You used to be able to option+drag calendar events to new times to copy this event. It seems to be lost.

  20. Compose mail in main window should be an option in Preferences.

    I know I can tap in open in new window, but having to press it everytime is tedious and prone to mistakes
