  1. Sort individual email threads the same as the inbox Sort Direction.

    When the Inbox sort direction is set to ascending (arrow up), also sort the individual threads to ascending (they currently stay descending).

  2. Adding photos to People (contacts) should override the profile portrait on incoming emails

    When a new email comes in, it should show with the photo that you've specifically assigned to the contact. I've done this and the photos still show just the user initials, even more confusing if it comes from a company email service that puts the last name first.

    Also, the photos seem to work differently on the web then on the apps for iOS/Mac.

  4. Sync Status

    I am very happy that the message index now shows messages from other folders like Outlook for Windows. However, some of my messages do not show the entire thread until I visit the other folder. I assume, based on the delay of showing the messages in the other folder, that this is a synchronization issue. I use Tools -> Sync or the toolbar button, see the popup indicating sync'ing is happening, but this doesn't seem to really be sync'ing everything.

    Perhaps the new outlook isn't syncing as much as "Cached Exchange Mode" with All email selected? If so, then this…

  5. Schedule a meeting invitation

    It would be great if we could schedule not only the e-mail sending but also the meeting invitation. I know that the topic of room booking could be the issue here (booking the room so that nobody else can book it in the meantime), but the possibility to schedule sending the invitation to the meeting would be appreciated.

  6. 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

  7. Subscripts and superscripts in the New Outlook for Mac

    The old version of Outlook allowed superscripting and subscripting characters in the text and it included buttons for those actions on the toolbar. The buttons have disappeared and the edit menu does not include entries for that sort of formatting.

    I can cut and paste from Word to get the text properly formatted but I would like to suggest that Outlook also include the functionality, as it used to do. Perhaps the functionality still exists but I do not see how to reveal it.

  14. Unified Sent Box

    There needs to be a Unified Sent Box like the current Outlook for Mac release, not just a Unified Inbox.

  15. een 2 way integratie met to do

    de to do app is een mooi aanvulling, of een uitgebreide variant van Tasks een goede integratie die zorgt dat tasks naar to do en bij afronden van van een taak de rode vlag bij outlook naar complete gaat.

  16. Use grouped-by headers for actions

    Allow the user to grab the grouped-by headers in the list ex: "Last Week" or "Last Month" and drag that entire group to a folder or execute a context menu action like Outlook for Windows.

  17. O365 vs outlook

    Its merely a question rather than suggestion. Looks like new outllook view doesn't support AppleScript, Is there any alternative like some sort of API which can be used to bring the calendar events ? And Does Microsoft recommends O365 over outlook in terms of getting the calendar events ?
