Message view columns
Ability to add columns such as Message Size. My organisation has strict quotas so its handy to be able to delete large messages
The 1st one who understands why you would remove the colums should comment here :-) I mean... file size, who got the email too, ON WHICH ACCOUNT WAS IT SENT, Attachments, Flags, categories etc. are essential work tools we are used to since 20 years or so. What changed, that Microsofts PO, Devs, Testers and Beta-Tester thought "well - I can live without it"?
I'm stunned to find out that the columns option hasn't been included in New Outlook for Mac. I need the "To" and "Categories," columns for nearly every email I send for work. Please, please add this back in!!!!! That is so important in my work that I am going to be unable to use the New Outlook. I'm SO disappointed!
Enable columns for the size of mailis etc,.. is very important i. When scrolling through a message list, users should additionally be able to view the time a message arrived or was sent.
The ability to view the size of a message is critical for organization with limit rule (like in my case)

Showing categories automatically makes the overview cloggy as subjects of the email as are not lined up in the column when categories are added to emails.
Adding the columns option (switch on/off) to be able to select the columns to show would be great. When column option is not enabled, this auto dynamic view as its' currently set could be used. Then users can choose for the dynamic view, or the structured view with columns.

Removing the column view options is baffling! One of the aspects of Outlook that I use often is categories. The inability to show the categories column is exceedingly frustrating for me. I liked the ability to customize my view depending on the type of processing I was doing and this lack of column options greatly hinders my productivity. Additionally, I hate the way the column headers keep disappearing.
Yes, ability to enable/disable columns is important for users in business environments as is the ability to adjust column widths. When scrolling through a message list, users should additionally be able to view the time a message arrived or was sent, not just the date.
Please make Outlook for Mac the same as Outlook for Windows. The volume of feature requests will drop significantly.

Basically, just bring back the tools for managing columns that was available in the last version of Outlook for the Mac. Really strange that you would deprecate that...
This is particularly useful in search results as I want to see which folder an email is in
