  3. 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.

  6. I suggest you add a button to create a task from an email

    I suggest you add a button to create a task from an email body that is highlighted. When a text is highlighted you should be able to create a task quickly from there with being able to link back to the original email as a reference.Inviting people to a task would be a nice touch as well.

  7. Add back support for any POP Account

    As of the June 8, 2020 release you only support Microsoft and Google mail accounts. Seriously? Please add back support for any standard POP account.

  8. 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…

  10. 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.

  11. Column headers in "new outlook"

    Have an option to keep column headers in the inbox persistent rather than have to hover over them to show (to/from/sent/subject, etc) and also have the ability to add/remove columns

  13. 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... 🤛🏼

  14. 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.

  15. 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)

    I normally sort my folders by category, and the new outlook has no accommodation for this.

  20. 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.
