  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  4. Send Availability

    The "Send Availablity" feature is iOS is one of the most useful features I've ever used. I actually switch away from a desktop interface to the mobile version of Outlook just to use that feature. It is that great! It would be AWESOME if the Outlook for Mac team could bring that feature to the Mac Desktop client.

    Encouragement... 🤛🏼

  10. 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.

  11. A more compact layout

    Currently, there seems to be a lot of 'dead' space in the new UI. While I like the more modern look, it should be possible to makt certain UI elements a bit more compact, much like is possible on Outlook for Windows...

  15. By default in conversation list show only items in the current folder.

    Right now all sub-folders including sent items show up by default making it very long list for each email.

  16. 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.

  18. Conversation threading should be a per-folder setting

    Conversation threading should be a per-folder setting, so, for example, my Inbox could have it on and my Sent Mail could have it off.

  20. Add custom keyboard shortcuts

    The ability to customise or use other keyboard shortcut schemes (e.g. Gmail) on the web app makes it 2x faster to process email. Please bring it to the desktop app!
