  1. import/export to proper PST Format!!!

    use PST like on windows so there is bettery interoperability and ability to create pst's when archival is necessary.

  2. Reduce font size in the Inbox view

    The font size is too large proportionally to all other fonts in the UI.

    Adjusting the existing font size setting applies globally and does not address the proportion issue, making the other UI fonts (which are great at the default size) too small.

    Coupled with the inability to hide message preview text, the current size notably limits the # of items that can be viewed.

    Thanks for your consideration.

  3. Access folders with the left sidebar collapsed

    I like having the left sidebar collapsed as it reduces wasted screen real estate. However, I occasionally need to access other folders like Sent, Archived, etc which means I have to collapse and expand this sidebar every time to see those items. It would be great to have another method of switching folders while keeping this sidebar collapsed.

    Note: this should also apply to calendars, people, notes, and tasks.

  4. Unified inbox as default launching view

    We know that the unified inbox is coming back but it's really important that we can set it as the default view when Outlook in launching.

    This feature is really simple but very important. It was missing from the last Outlook on Mac.

    Please. Add it.

    Would be great to have account support for email aliases per provider.

  7. Implement web's reading pane

    Outlook for Web condenses the conversation nicely; expanding only the most recent message and giving a preview of the others. You can then expand each previous message separately if you need more context.

    I LOVE the Outlook web app and want it as a native macOS app.

  8. Include archive, delete, and flag buttons in mail notifications

    When the notification window is displayed for new incoming email, please include buttons to quickly archive, delete, or flag the new incoming email without having to go to the main outlook window. It would be nice to be able to quickly delete incoming email if we don't want to read it, right from the notification display.

  9. Add option to remove email date groups in inbox

    I keep a pretty clean inbox, and while I like the overall design of thew new Outlook's Inbox area a lot of screen space is wasted to these "This week", "Last week", etc" identifiers that are just not needed.

    Please let me turn them off, like you could in old Outlook (via unchecking "Show in Groups" setting).

  10. Add feature already in Windows (Previous/Next)

    Mirror Windows version function related to "After moving or deleting an open item" and the option to return, open previous or next. Also, add previous/next buttons to email windows.

  11. Ability to use an alias on Gmail

    Was previously able to use an alias on a Gmail account, no longer able to do that on the new Outlook. Love it but this was an important feature. Can you restore?

  12. Make delete confirmation from Junk folder optional

    I would like to turn off confirmation when deleting from Junk folder. There does not seem to be a setting for it.

  13. Search Sent folder for "To:" addresses, not "From:"

    When I'm searching sent mail, I NEVER need to search on the From: message, and am ALWAYS looking for a message I sent to someone. I'm sure there are exceptions to that for some people and accounts, but in general, that would be the intelligent field to be searching for when in the Sent folder.

  15. Customize the Touch Bar

    With the new Outlook for Mac starting new and waiting to be more like a native Mac application I would suggest allowing users to customize the Touch Bar options. Right now there are missing functions for the Touch Bar and the old version of Outlook for Mac did not allow for customization. It would be good to allow us to customize what functions we would like to have on the Touch Bar.

  16. Font size choices

    There is currently one font size choice setting in Outlook. Please add options for font sizes for the mail index, mail body, etc. Changing the size for the index will make the font size in the mail messages too large or too small, depending on the setting.

  17. Mail Clean Up

    Add a Clean Up feature as the Windows version currently has to clear up any duplicate emails/unnecessary emails from conversation threads.

  18. Turn an Email / Calendar Invite into a Teams thread.

    Have the ability to send an email to a group E.g. Interest Rate Changes and instead of sending emails back have the ability to turn into a chat underneath and in Teams. Like how Spark email does it at the moment with the Discuss email feature.

    Would also be good for internal conversations on calendar invites, if someone wants to propose a new time or add info to the agenda. The calendar invite could become a Teams chat and files and chat could start around that meeting.

  20. approval assistant support

    Would like to be able to accept or deny approval emails for DL emails as I can in the browser or the Windows client. Most annoying as I need both the browser and Mac client open.
