  1. 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.

  3. Left Sidebar configurable smaller width

    On New Outlook view, the Left Sidebar width has a minimum size that enables to view the full name of all the elements. That's using too many horizontal space, only for one or two folders that I already know.
    I'd like to be able to reduce the Left Sidebar width in order to not "loosing" too many horizontal space.
    I know I can fully colapse it, but then I cannot see the folders...

  4. Bring back Advanced Search options (+ related Search issues)

    My inbox is crazy, so the search bar is a large part of my process. Since upgrading to the new Outlook 16.41 for Mac, we've lost some major Search functionalities, including:


    1. Relevance: When using multiple search terms to find a specific conversation, Outlook is now searching using "OR" logic instead of "AND" logic. Very frustrating when completely irrelevant results are appearing because they contain 1 of the 3 search terms/keywords (instead of all 3).


    2. "Contains"/"Does Not Contain" functionality: So helpful when looking for emails from a specific organization (ex: "From" contains "@examplecompany.com") or specific sub-sets of emails (ex: "Subject" does…

  6. 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.

  11. 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.

  12. 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.

    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. 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)

  16. Include Mail Rules for client side

    I tried the new Outlook today and discovered that, per conversation with Tech Support, RULES have been eliminated in the new version. According to the support person I chatted with, "I see you have an Outlook.com account setup. Currently rules are not supported for Outlook.com account in New Outlook. It only works with your O365 account".

    For me, RULES are very important as this is the only thing that keeps my inbox under control. I get over 60 pieces of spam/junk/trash mail and my rules,, take care of that mess quite nicely

  17. Make the 'You replied to this email' bar clickable like previous Outlook versions

    In the old Outlook version if you clicked on an email that you previously replied to a bar would appear at the top saying "You replied to this message" and if you clicked on that bar, you would be taken to your reply email. In the new Outlook, this bar still appears to show that you already responded to that email, but clicking on it does nothing. Can you fix this so that it's clickable again, to take the user directly to the reply?

  18. Return Organize by Categories and Collapse/Expand All by Sorting method

    I really do like the new design, but there are 2 fundamental features that made Outlook stand above all other email client and really make impractical to use the new Outlook at work for e-mail:
    I would like to request that these 2 features ( or similar new version) be added:
    - The Ability to organize by Categories
    - Able to Collapse/expand all e-mails by the selected sorting method
    The use of categories became irrelevant if you cannot organize or search emails by them, and if hundreds of e-mails every day, it is a nightmare not been able to collapse…

  19. Bring feature parity between Outlook for Mac and Windows

    So far New Outlook is looking like a skinned version of the current version. This is absolutely not what business users want or need. We need the features that Outlook for Windows has, to be productive in our jobs. This is very frustrating.
