  3. Feedback that Outlook asked for when I switched off the new look

    The user interface is beautiful, more Mac like, but why can’t we have both, a nice interface and all the features of Windows Outlook? Would you pull this trick/sham on your Windows Outlook users? Will Windows Outlook get this same interface too? (Mac Outlook is my primary email client, but I do use 3 different workstations, and one of them is Windows Outlook, so now I have to re-adjust every time I switch workstations.)

    My company pays the same amount for each user, no matter if they are Mac or Windows users. Therefore, I would like to have the same…

  4. When you locate a message using the search function, the content of the message does not show up.

    The search isn't very helpful because you can't see the content in the messages.

  5. Enable immediate naming of new mail folders

    After creating a new mail folder (default name "Untitled Folder"), the new Outlook should automatically select the folder name for editing so that the user can immediately start typing the new folder name.

  6. Allow users to disable External Recipient MailTip

    The newly added External Recipient MailTip is fine for those who feel it adds value, but is an unnecessary waste of real estate and can frustrate users who generally mail external recipients and therefore don't need this warning.

    If it can't be removed, then please at least allow users to disable it.

  7. calendar autoprocessing

    Calendar response autoprocessing doesn't seem to work the same way in the new Outlook. This might be because the Rules engine for the old Outlook is not fully supported on the new. In essence I would like to have all autoreplies, all accept / decline / tentative notifications for calendars able to be handled automatically, unless there is note in the body of this kind of "noise" email

  8. Remember Outlook window position

    Each time when I start Outlook it opens on the main screen with a random size window. Ideally, I would love to see it in the exact same location and size as it was before I quit it e.g. fullscreen on the second monitor.
    Thank you.

  10. Allow stacked functions for Reply/Reply All/Forward/Forward as Attachment

  12. Keyboard shortcut to add Signature

    Keyboard shortcut to add Signature
    Add the ability to insert a default signature by using keyboard shortcut key combinations. You could go one steep further by making it a toggle for signature so you can toggle it on or off with keyboard short cuts.

  13. Jpeg attachments should fit to screen

    When I pull a .jpeg into an email and it's below my text, it should fit the active screen vs forcing me to scroll to the right to view it entirely. when i resize the screen size/ window it should do the same.

  14. When the Reading Pane is on the bottom, ensure its size remains consistent when switching between displays

    I have my mail Reading Pane set to Bottom, and when switching between monitors the pane often shrinks to an unusably small size, when I have to manually enlarge by dragging the pane split. It would be better if the Reading Pane remained the same size (either by dimension or by proportion) when the app window size changes when switching monitors.

  16. Align the menu action buttons (delete/archive/move) with the mail action buttons (reply, reply all, fwd).

    Align the menu action buttons (delete/archive/move) with the mail action buttons (reply, reply all, fwd). There is a lot of mouse movement and general realignment with these being in very different spots - but sets of buttons someone often jumps between as they work through their inbox.

  19. Allow me to pick a category when I set up an appointment

    When I set up a new appointment, I don't have the option to choose a category. It's a pain to create the appointment, the go right click on it, then choose category, then pick it.
