  1. Use grouped-by headers for actions

    Allow the user to grab the grouped-by headers in the list ex: "Last Week" or "Last Month" and drag that entire group to a folder or execute a context menu action like Outlook for Windows.

  2. quote reply with > chevron indent (aka bottom-reply support)

    In many forums (including standards and open source) bottom reply is preferred where the previous message is indented with chevrons (>). However Outlook for Mac forces top reply. This makes it incompatible with the community standards of the web.

    Outlook should support an option (like it does for attribution at the top of the email) that enables quoted reply for html or text messages. Specifically, switching from html to text message should change the quoting from the blue bar to the chevrons automatically.

  5. I suggest more care is taken to capture as-is settings

    Just taken the new look Outlook for Mac; good show but did not carry over all my mailboxes; and rolled favourite folders back several weeks - frustrating.

  6. Support tags

    Outlook could use tagging. Multiple tags per email would be ideal, this would help with searching and having smart searches based on tags.

  8. Sync Status

    I am very happy that the message index now shows messages from other folders like Outlook for Windows. However, some of my messages do not show the entire thread until I visit the other folder. I assume, based on the delay of showing the messages in the other folder, that this is a synchronization issue. I use Tools -> Sync or the toolbar button, see the popup indicating sync'ing is happening, but this doesn't seem to really be sync'ing everything.

    Perhaps the new outlook isn't syncing as much as "Cached Exchange Mode" with All email selected? If so, then this…

  13. Reduce dead/white space, shrink fonts (or option to)

    Too much space is wasted due to spacing horizontally and vertically. Columns are too thick, fonts are too pronounced and too large and the whitespace between rows is wasteful.

    I'm using a UHD screen and it's like I have a 1366x768 laptop screen.

  14. Be able to remove Office 365 Groups from Mail and Calendar

    After upgrading to the new Outlook all the Office groups have appeared in Mail and Calendar making it very long and confusing. As a group creator, I do not need to see every group I am part of in Calendar and don't need to see the emails show up in my inbox. There needs to be a way to remove them from view in outlook. Thanks

  16. Set default recurring event length to max future room reservation date

    An admin can set a max for how far a room can be reserved in advance. However, that is not related to the default end date that is set when I create a recurrence in Outlook. So I always need to send the recurrence, then get rejected by the room to learn how far out I can book the room for. Then I have to resend the meeting with that date set as the end date.

    Can you just default the end date to the max room reservation date?

  19. Allow draft message deletion through key combination

    When writing a draft message, allow quick deletion of the draft with a keystroke, such as Cmd-Delete, instead of requiring the mouse to be used on a button at the bottom of the screen. Historically, it opened a new window which I could just close with Cmd-W.

  20. Make "view with a dark/light background" follow the App/OS theme

    In the New Outlook mode, 16.33 (19120401), on macOS Catalina, 10.15.2 Beta (19C56a), the option to view email with a light or dark background is great, but it would be awesome if it followed the App/OS theme.

    For example, when the OS theme is dark, and Outlook is not set to always show light mode, it should automatically apply the "view with a dark background" setting, and allow the user to select "view with a light background" if they choose.
