  1. 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. :)

  2. 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.

  3. Folder search should not include deleted folders

    When searching the folders to move a message into a new folder, folders that exist in the Deleted Items group should not be included.

  4. 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.

  6. Connection status

    In Outlook, could you pls bring back Connection Status either in status bar or another property in Customize toolbar whether this connection is Online/ Offline. It is hard to see in first sight if there is any network challenge.

  7. 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.

  8. Have an address book show all address lists from Exchange (like outlook for windows)

    port the address book from the windows outlook client to the macOS version.

  9. My Computer Contacts

    In current Outlook, my contacts are in the My Computer folder. New outlook does not display them.

    How can you design a "New" Outlook that doesn't have same functionality of the Old Outlook.

    And when the Old Outlook is no longer an option, how do I get my contacts?

    Bad design.

  10. Add format painter to in-window email composer

    Can you please add the format painter to the in-window email composer. I use it all the time to fix formatting on text copied in from other sources, and it is a pain to have to pop out the window just to access that function

  13. Make the Scheduling Assistant available for all meetings, not just ones with large number of attendees

    I want the option to look at every attendee's calendar availability myself and select a time. Right now I only get this option if I have a meeting with a large number of attendees and/or and the system can't find a time that works itself. Let us access Scheduling Assistant whenever we want.

  14. Add Vertical Scrolling for Calendar Navigation

    Enable vertical scrolling to navigate through the Calendar through weeks, months and years instead of having to click the left and right arrow at the top of the screen to incrementally move one month at a time.

  16. Bring back the checkmark option when flagging an email.

    The checkmark is important. It gives me some small joy and semblance of accomplishment. Without the checkmark my inbox is just a continuously growing list of questions, tasks and requests that will never appear to be completed. It will just continue to grow and grow and grow. It's the thing of nightmares and panic attacks. Please, let me have my little checkmark.

  17. 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…
