Support of MAC standard keyboard shortcuts
On MacOS you've standardised keystrokes when moving the cursor or editing text. It's very inefficient and distracting, that Outlook is not following this standard.
System wide you can use Ctrl-a to jump to the beginning of a line
In Outlook it selects all text. -> Very problematic for people who can write fast.

Please indeed consider this. Ctrl-A and then typing currently wipes out the entire email text, which ... really is not what I expect on a mac.
BTW, this is not just a (big) convenience/productivity benefit, but eliminates a huge annoyance to seasoned Mac users. It's very annoying/frustrating to type Ctrl-b (cursor back one character) and have bold text turned on instead. Or type ctrl-a (cursor to beginning of line) do 'select all', instead of behaving like those key combos behave in virtually every other edit window on the Mac.
I agree wholeheartedly with this. Mac users are used to the standard Cocoa text-editing bindings. They're available in virtually every text widget (such as in this very comment window, in Edge, on my Mac!). The native Notes app has them in their purest form, and they make cursor movement, selection, deletion, copy, paste, everything a breeze without having to leave your keyboard or touch your trackpad or mouse.

Control > and Control < are both trying to increase/decrease font size (Mac Standard, on Windows it's CTRL and same keystroke), but here it's also jumping me to another folder while simultaneously also changing the font size. This needs to match how Old Outlook and the rest of Mac OS works. This did work and you can kind of see it is like it's mapped to two functions.
