  1. Full screen mode doesn't keep the outlook view.

    When the new outlook is in fullscreen mode, the layout of the app can spread to wide to see what's in a message. No horizontal scroll bars come up either. It becomes too big to fit on the screen.

  2. Let me disable the "What a productive day! You've accomplished a lot." graphic in the email list.

    When I have no emails in the selected list, Outlook shows this cheerful graphic saying "What a productive day! You've accomplished a lot."

    This is really annoying! Outlook has no idea how my day is actually going, and it feels just kinda dissonant. I'd like to be able to disable it.

  5. When accepting meeting invites, add back support for 'accept without response'

    Old outlook had support for accept without response, decline without response to meeting invites. The new outlook needs to bring back those options

  6. Show replies in the email thread.

    Replied emails should be visible and able to be read in the thread, not hidden. A badge showing that I replied doesn't do much good.

  7. Smart folder suggestions (move)

    Hi,

    When moving an e-mail message to a folder, I would like Outlook to propose a list of folders matching that message. As you know, it is a simple machine learning classification problem (https://people.cs.umass.edu/~mccallum/papers/foldering-tr05.pdf).

    Thanks!

  8. Add multiple flags - categories for non outlook email accounts

    It would be a great help to me if there were multiple flags, as this is how I prefer to sort emails. I have multiple folders setup now but this is definitely a more tedious and inefficient process.

    Thanks!

  10. I just want to tell you the new UI update is fantastic.

    The UI update to Outlook is fantastic. The focus on simplicity and elegance is refreshing. Thanks. Microsoft is on a roll lately.

  11. I'd suggest rethinking the space-wasting application bar.

    The new app bar, hosting just the search bar and window controls is a huge waste. Apple's new guidance for macOS 11 is to combine the window and title bar now.

  14. Change the way rules are setup

    Previous version you could click on an email and setup a rule using the mail email address. Now you have to type in the email and all of the other details.

    Previous way was slicker and easier to use

  15. Make monthly Calendar printouts better.

    Allow landscape printing, and include much more detail for each entry. Windows version is great. This Mac version is not.

  16. Saved Searches in Favourites

    Why not allow saved searches to be view in your favourites folder so that you don't have to scroll to the bottom of the page all the time?

  17. position folder in tree to be visible on 'open folder in new window'

    When opening a folder in another window (thru a right click of the folder in the tree) please reposition the tree to show the selection. Right now in the new window the list in the newly created windows is positioned back all the way to the top. Next thing typically is to scroll down until you see the folder.

  18. Please add means to search in folder list in the left pane

    Not only for outlook on the Mac but generally. I am an old-style user that still tries to arrange emails in folder - hence I end up with 100s and 1000 of folders. Wouldn't it be nice to have a search feature above the tree, ideally with a live/incremental search pruning the tree to only folders that match the search criteria (even greater when some wildcard functionality would also be there).

  19. trash can and other shortcuts on entry in email list

    Please allow to disable shortcut items delete/archive/flag in the email list. The way this is implemented, especially on the reading-pane-below style, way to easily leads to accidentally deleted emails. Happens every 5-10 clicks into the list that you delete instead of select an item.

  20. Add more colors to outlook calendars

    When scheduling more people than the preset number of colors, it's very difficult to differentiate between different calendars.
