  1. Make it possible to create local folders "on my computer" to save email to. Previous versions allowed this.

    In the current version of Outlook for Mac, users can create folders "on my computer" to organise/drag/drop specific emails into. This functionality is not currently working in New Outlook for Mac.

  5. 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.

  6. 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)

  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…

  9. 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.

  12. 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.

  13. My Computer Contacts

    In current Outlook, my contacts are in the My Computer folder. New outlook does not display them.

    How can you design a "New" Outlook that doesn't have same functionality of the Old Outlook.

    And when the Old Outlook is no longer an option, how do I get my contacts?

    Bad design.

  18. 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.
