  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.

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. 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

  6. 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…

  8. 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.

  13. Implement web's reading pane

    Outlook for Web condenses the conversation nicely; expanding only the most recent message and giving a preview of the others. You can then expand each previous message separately if you need more context.

    I LOVE the Outlook web app and want it as a native macOS app.

  14. Return Flag for Follow-up/Reminder

    With the New Outlook for Mac, you seem to have removed the functionality to right-click on an email and set a reminder/flag/due date for a mail item. Can you please return this functionality? I found it especially useful for items that I could not act on at the moment but needed to follow back up with.

  15. Bring back support for delegated accounts.

    Previous delegated mailboxes (or shared mailboxes not sure what you call them) could be added to Outlook and would show up as additional mailboxes.

    With new Outlook these mailboxes no longer appear.

    It would be great if you bring them back. :)

  17. Please add the "Category" as an option in the e-mail filter and search

    Please add the "Category" as an option in the e-mail filter - as well as in the search function. This is needed to support the "Getting Things Done".

  18. 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

  20. Online Archive Access in Outlook for Mac

    There doesn't appear to be any access to the Online Archive area using the new Mail client. This will be a problem for me and my users that make use of this storage area.
