  1. By default in conversation list show only items in the current folder.

    Right now all sub-folders including sent items show up by default making it very long list for each email.

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. Bring back support for delegated accounts.

    Previous delegated mailboxes (or shared mailboxes not sure what you call them) could be added to Outlook and would show up as additional mailboxes.

    With new Outlook these mailboxes no longer appear.

    It would be great if you bring them back. :)

  7. Please add the "Category" as an option in the e-mail filter and search

    Please add the "Category" as an option in the e-mail filter - as well as in the search function. This is needed to support the "Getting Things Done".

  8. Add support for trackpad gestures

    I'm sure it's coming, but the app needs increased support for trackpad gestures. Actions like swiping to delete a message, and navigating through the calendar are super important.

  9. Compose mail in main window should be an option in Preferences.

    I know I can tap in open in new window, but having to press it everytime is tedious and prone to mistakes

  11. Online Archive Access in Outlook for Mac

    There doesn't appear to be any access to the Online Archive area using the new Mail client. This will be a problem for me and my users that make use of this storage area.

  14. Add Skype integration. Where did it go?

    Skype integration into the meeting creation tab was one-click and easy to do.

  15. 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.

  16. restore the ability to search by flags

    the search menu of old Outlook allowed for searching and/or filtering on many options — has attachments, is flagged, and so on. it’s kind of useless not to be able to search for flagged messages.

  17. Add custom keyboard shortcuts

    The ability to customise or use other keyboard shortcut schemes (e.g. Gmail) on the web app makes it 2x faster to process email. Please bring it to the desktop app!

  18. My Day Pref - Show/Hide Location row

    It would be nice if this view could be changed by the user. For example at the moment mine shows the event time, the duration, the event name and the location. The location shows the address which takes up 4 lines of type. While this is nice to have and is neatly laid out, my prference would be to toggle the location off with a nearby button or dropdown with toggle choices, to have some choice as to what is displayed here. The trade-off benefit is having more calendar events displayed.

  20. Teams online status disappeared

    The actual Teams status e.g. of an internal email recipient doesn't show up anymore. All user appear as offline now. I guess this is a bug to be fixed.
