  2. 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. 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

  6. 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.

  8. Color Coding email accounts

    Like Spark Mail, or Canary Mail, the ability to color code email accounts. Would appear color coded in left nav bar and also with an indicator in email list.

    Why? Makes it real easy to see what account an email came in to.

  9. Sync limit

    The new Outlook client seems to be limited to syncing six months of email. I can't find the sync limit anywhere. I keep switching between the two Outlook clients depending what I am searching for.

  11. send delay to every message

    In Outlook for Windows I can add a send delay to every message as a rule. I like doing this because it gives me an extra minute or more to change my mind about an email after clicking 'Send'.

    The web version offers a 10-second delay, which is even better than nothing.

  12. Bring back the ability to sort and resize columns in mail for "New Outlook:

    It would be good to bring back the ability to resize columns in "New Outlook" since I'd like to see more of the message title and less of the sender.
    It would also be good to be able to change the colum order, or move the delete/archive flag column back to the left. In the current order, I keep accidentally deleting messages, something I never did when that column was at the left.

  13. Send and Archive button

    It will be very useful to integrate a button that, while replying to a mail, send a message and archive all the thread.

  14. Add Alias support

    The web based outlook.com and the windows version of outlook 2019 and 365 both support alias support. Only the mac version does not support this. It would be very useful if such support was added.

  15. 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…

  16. Support for contact lists (not contact groups!)

    Support for contact lists from Outlook.com on the web.

    I know contact groups (...@groups.outlook.com) are supported, but support for contact LISTS is also needed.

  17. Add option to remove email date groups in inbox

    I keep a pretty clean inbox, and while I like the overall design of thew new Outlook's Inbox area a lot of screen space is wasted to these "This week", "Last week", etc" identifiers that are just not needed.

    Please let me turn them off, like you could in old Outlook (via unchecking "Show in Groups" setting).

  18. Pin mails on the top

    Just like on outlook.com it would be nice to be able to pin messages at the top of folders and sync whatever message you pin in outlook.com to also pin it on the app.

  20. 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.
