  3. Allow contextual default search context customization

    Allow contextual default search context customization. From the inbox, I would like to search the entire mailbox. From other folders, I would like to search the current folder. This feature is available in Outlook for Windows.

  4. 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?

  5. Group Contacts.

    Group Contacts. I have several groups of email addresses I send emails to daily. Not being able to create one contact for a group of emails is disappointing. Please bring back this feature.

  6. Meetings subject edit

    I have a VM with outlook for windows to have access to this feature.
    I prefer to rename subjects of meeting with special words to easily know for which customer is the appointment.

  9. Prompt to save or delete a draft when closing out of the email

    When closing out of an email draft in the new outlook, it automatically closes the window and saves the draft. It would be great if this could be changed to function like the old Outlook version, which would prompt a user to either save or delete the draft before it would continue to close.

  10. Make the my day tab open smaller at the side of the page.

    It used to take up a small part of the right-hand side of the display, however now whenever it opens it takes up half of my display, shrinking the tab in the middle for reading emails. I never felt the need to move it around before, but now i have to drag it around to a usable size every time i open outlook. I have a screenshot if the devs want to see what I mean.

  12. Make it Possible to Forward an Email in Drafts

    Up until the most recent release, you could forward an email that was in the drafts folder. You could basically leave email templates in there and just forward as needed. Now, there is no way to forward a draft email.

    You have to fix this!

  13. Media Browser

    Menu item: Window->Media Browser is broken. The old interface launches an applet that allows you to browse the "Libraries" as defined by the User account profile. That applet is OLD and barely functional. You cannot close the applet window after it launches It just sits and ignores the mouseDown event in the "close" button area. Time to ditch the Media Browser for something more current and Big Sur(ish) and dump the old Media Browser on Outlook.

  16. Keep sent emails in the Sent folder when moving conversation to folder

    When moving conversation thread to a folder, keep the sent items in Sent

    I view my messages with conversations and recently just upgraded to the new Outlook (Mac). When I move the conversation to a folder, it also moves messages from Sent to that folder. It's great to be able to view the whole thread from that folder but not having this in my Sent folder makes it impossible to find emails I've sent. This wasn't the case with the old version.

  17. have a reply and delete original message button. ALL IN ONE

    90% OF THE THE time you hit reply and you want to then delete the email that you are replaying to. So have a new button called reply and delete. And have it then delete the message you are replying to.

  18. When deleting people from a meeting request or email - actually delete the one I selected

    When replying all to an email or changing the meeting participants I simply want to select and delete people I want to reduce the thread or meeting to. Sometimes this works. Other times it just deletes the last one at the end...and undo doesn't get them back. Please make this reliable - that highlighting and clicking the one to delete isn't an unpredictable behavior decided by Outlook.

  19. 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.

  20. get the display proportions correct

    Font sizing and UI sizing is all over the place. Somone needs to spend some time on getting the look proportionally correct. Right sidebar is huge compared to the other UI elements.
