  1. Include Mail Rules for client side

    I tried the new Outlook today and discovered that, per conversation with Tech Support, RULES have been eliminated in the new version. According to the support person I chatted with, "I see you have an Outlook.com account setup. Currently rules are not supported for Outlook.com account in New Outlook. It only works with your O365 account".

    For me, RULES are very important as this is the only thing that keeps my inbox under control. I get over 60 pieces of spam/junk/trash mail and my rules,, take care of that mess quite nicely

  3. Too easy to not finish an email and forget it

    I love the new layout, by the way, but this issue is making me crazy.

    It is way too easy to be typing a long email and then click away to do something (like read an email that just came in), and then what you wrote so far has been saved to Drafts without any alert or any notification to remind you to finish what you started. It was never an issue when emails opened in separate windows because unfinished emails were always still there until you Sent or Saved to Drafts. In this scenario, I've been accidentally saving half-written…

  4. Need email "View Source" back

    "View Source" was an important tool for looking at the source (headers, body, servers, etc.) of a received message. It was in the context menu (right-click) but is no longer there. I could not find it in the menus either.

  5. Bring feature parity between Outlook for Mac and Windows

    So far New Outlook is looking like a skinned version of the current version. This is absolutely not what business users want or need. We need the features that Outlook for Windows has, to be productive in our jobs. This is very frustrating.

  6. Support for contact lists (not contact groups!)

    Support for contact lists from Outlook.com on the web.

    I know contact groups (...@groups.outlook.com) are supported, but support for contact LISTS is also needed.

  9. New Email to Attendees

    Bring back the feature of 'New Email to Attendees' from a calendar invite. In the old version you could right click on a calendar meeting > 'New Email to Attendees' and a new email would pop up right away. Now, you have to open the invite, copy the email address and paste it into a new email. As a high volume Recruiter, this feature was really helpful.

  10. Add Full Smart Folder Support for New Mac Outlook

    The Smart Folders no longer appear or are supported with the new Mac Outlook, please bring them back. The "saved searches" function does not adequately replace them as it lacks any of the useful functionality that Smart Folders have. I will be switching back to the old Outlook until the full functionality of Smart Folders is brought into the new version.

  12. Show total / count of emails in any folders? Where has this gone!

    Office you had this in the last Mac version, latest release I can't see how many items / emails are in the folder I'm in? This really needs to be there

  13. Return Flag for Follow-up/Reminder

    With the New Outlook for Mac, you seem to have removed the functionality to right-click on an email and set a reminder/flag/due date for a mail item. Can you please return this functionality? I found it especially useful for items that I could not act on at the moment but needed to follow back up with.

  16. Sync limit

    The new Outlook client seems to be limited to syncing six months of email. I can't find the sync limit anywhere. I keep switching between the two Outlook clients depending what I am searching for.

    I normally sort my folders by category, and the new outlook has no accommodation for this.

  18. Please add the feature "Paste Options"

    Please add the options Keep Source Formatting, Match Formatting and keep Text Only.
    Also it would be nice to have keyboard shortcuts like cmd+shift+v to paste as Text Only.

  19. Launch local ToDo app if it's there

    If you have the local ToDo app it should launch when you click on new ToDo rather than just taking you to the WebUI.

  20. Addin support when composing a mail in a new window

    When composing a mail in a new window (and not in the reading pane) the AddIn toolbar is not displayed. It could be very useful to have it.
