  1. When you locate a message using the search function, the content of the message does not show up.

    The search isn't very helpful because you can't see the content in the messages.

  2. Enable immediate naming of new mail folders

    After creating a new mail folder (default name "Untitled Folder"), the new Outlook should automatically select the folder name for editing so that the user can immediately start typing the new folder name.

  3. 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.

  4. Allow users to disable External Recipient MailTip

    The newly added External Recipient MailTip is fine for those who feel it adds value, but is an unnecessary waste of real estate and can frustrate users who generally mail external recipients and therefore don't need this warning.

    If it can't be removed, then please at least allow users to disable it.

  5. Support scheduling meetings Skype for Business *On-Prem* current only supports SfB Online

    New Outlook 16.41 only shows the Skype meeting option if your tenant is using "Skype for Business Online"
    The large company I work for has approximately 2500 Mac users, and one of the largest deployments of Skype for Business on-prem.

    For us to switch users over to the New Outlook in 2021, we have to have the ability for people to schedule Skype for Business meetings.

    Please enable the ability for EXO users with SfB On-prem to schedule meetings in "New Outlook"

  6. Provide ability to resize calendar view to see all items during working hours

    The calendar view crops out the early part of the day or the end of the day so I can't see all calendar items on the day. Please provide to ability to resize the time axis to enable this.

  7. calendar autoprocessing

    Calendar response autoprocessing doesn't seem to work the same way in the new Outlook. This might be because the Rules engine for the old Outlook is not fully supported on the new. In essence I would like to have all autoreplies, all accept / decline / tentative notifications for calendars able to be handled automatically, unless there is note in the body of this kind of "noise" email

  11. Allow stacked functions for Reply/Reply All/Forward/Forward as Attachment

    To use less real-estate in ribbon allow certain similar things to be stacked or singular.

  12. Add Hubspot sales tool integration

    Hubspot Sales Add-in is essential for anyone involved in sales or marketing. The new look is great but I need this added.

  14. Keyboard shortcut to add Signature

    Keyboard shortcut to add Signature
    Add the ability to insert a default signature by using keyboard shortcut key combinations. You could go one steep further by making it a toggle for signature so you can toggle it on or off with keyboard short cuts.

  15. Jpeg attachments should fit to screen

    When I pull a .jpeg into an email and it's below my text, it should fit the active screen vs forcing me to scroll to the right to view it entirely. when i resize the screen size/ window it should do the same.

  16. We need an option to allow outlook to download ALL emails across all folders like in Windows.

    We need an option to allow outlook to download ALL emails across all folders like in Windows. I live on planes and in a disconnected state. I require all my emails downloaded in outlook at all times. I can't search only to find out that only the least 2 weeks of messages are there. It's horrible. The old outlook works much better

  17. When the Reading Pane is on the bottom, ensure its size remains consistent when switching between displays

    I have my mail Reading Pane set to Bottom, and when switching between monitors the pane often shrinks to an unusably small size, when I have to manually enlarge by dragging the pane split. It would be better if the Reading Pane remained the same size (either by dimension or by proportion) when the app window size changes when switching monitors.

  19. Align the menu action buttons (delete/archive/move) with the mail action buttons (reply, reply all, fwd).

    Align the menu action buttons (delete/archive/move) with the mail action buttons (reply, reply all, fwd). There is a lot of mouse movement and general realignment with these being in very different spots - but sets of buttons someone often jumps between as they work through their inbox.
