  1. Please investigate GPU usage during scrolling in the new Outlook for Mac

    There seems to be rather heavy load and GPU usage, especially when scrolling the inbox, when using the new Outlook for Mac. I see GPU spikes on the integrated Intel UHD 630 to 100%. The OS never forces the dGPU into usage though, only the iGPU.

  2. 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.

    One example:
    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.

  3. Feedback that Outlook asked for when I switched off the new look

    The user interface is beautiful, more Mac like, but why can’t we have both, a nice interface and all the features of Windows Outlook? Would you pull this trick/sham on your Windows Outlook users? Will Windows Outlook get this same interface too? (Mac Outlook is my primary email client, but I do use 3 different workstations, and one of them is Windows Outlook, so now I have to re-adjust every time I switch workstations.)

    My company pays the same amount for each user, no matter if they are Mac or Windows users. Therefore, I would like to have the same…

  4. Allow adding calendar and contact buttons to the mail pane

    Currently, customizing the button bar seems to be possible inside the same category only. That way, I can no longer add the "address book" button e.g. to the mail view, essentially taking more clicks to achieve simple things like looking up a contact.

  7. New Outlook will not use MFA.

    You have to switch back to old Outlook so you can Multi Factor, then switch back to New Outlook.

  8. On startup, remember what was expanded in the folder pane

    Every update, the tree of folders starts up collapsed, as Outlook doesn't seem to remember the last state. It's a minor inconvenience, but I seem to remember the old experience doing this.

  9. change text size in all the panes in Outlook

    I can only change text size in the reading pane. Need to be able to change the font size in the inbox, calendar pane, etc.

  11. Option to download only recent attachments ?

    Similar to Apple Mail, I would like the option to download only attachments from mail received in the last 6 or 12 months. The reason I want this is to reduce the size of my Outlook folders on my SSD.

  13. Ability to make the sidebars narrower

    I recently enabled Insider Slow and I love the new Outlook, especially the right sidebar with my calendar. However, it takes up too much space on my screen and prevents me from being able to see the full width of emails. I've made it as small as it goes, but it's still too big for it to be useful for me. I'd love the ability to make both sidebars, but especially the right sidebar, narrower so I can see more of my emails.

  15. Provide More Options to Customize Toolbars

    I LOVE the new customizable toolbars, I've been hoping for this feature since 2009, when I started using Outlook for Mac primarily.

    However, I wish the toolbars had more additional toolbar options.

    For example, the toolbar in the calendar view is limited to only "New Event".

    Also, would love to see more toolbar options across the board, such as a "Resend" and "View Source" toolbar icon in Mail view.

    Thanks!

  16. Teams online status is no longer working on version 16.41.xx

    The actual MS Teams status doesn't show up anymore while composing or viewing mails. All user appear as offline now. Not sure if this feature which was working earlier was disable again.

  17. Fix the "New Outlook" toggle in dark mode

    When New Outlook is selected as being "on" (slider to the right), it appears to be off as the slider isn't bright. Opposite of expected behavior. This may be in dark mode only. I haven't tested in light mode.

  18. Today Panel can't be resized freely

    The width of the today panel can't be resized easily, as it stands the minimum width takes up too much screen real estate. You also can't drag the calendar area to devote more space to the top calendar bit (ie to get 2 or three months in the view)

  19. When deleting people from a meeting request or email - actually delete the one I selected

    When replying all to an email or changing the meeting participants I simply want to select and delete people I want to reduce the thread or meeting to. Sometimes this works. Other times it just deletes the last one at the end...and undo doesn't get them back. Please make this reliable - that highlighting and clicking the one to delete isn't an unpredictable behavior decided by Outlook.

  20. Please provide a complete uninstaller for MS Office and its components

    Please provide a complete uninstaller for MS Office and its components, not all of users find it easy to follow the manual unintsallation guide for office, me inluded and its easy to miss a component or a file which might make it harded for users to do fresh re-installations in case needed ( in my case this was a problem )

    a clean uninstaller pkg or tool will make it much more easier for us.

    Thank you!
