  1. Option to remove "Conversation History" folder.

    Please allow removing "Conversation History" folder as it's always empty and absolutely useless.

  2. Add the Sweep feature from the web app

    Sweep let's you quickly set up rules and filter emails into folders. It is the only way I can deal with a large volume of emails. Please bring it to the desktop app!

  3. All Day Events in "My Day" are NOT Sorted as they are in Calendar

    The Calendar sorts all day events lexicographically (dictionary order, essentially) but the My Day view sorts all day events for a day differently.

    I think the My Day View sorts all day events by creation order (oldest to newest).

    It would be nice if the My Day view sorted all day events the same way as the Calendar view does. This makes it easier to find an all day event in My Day when you have a large number of all day events.

    Thanks!

  4. Today's All Day Events in "My Day" Should Not be Dimmed

    I love the "My Day" Sidebar because it allows me to see all the all day events of a day, especially because I often have more all day events then are shown in the calendar view. (Greater than 15.)

    However, the all day events for today (the current day) are dimmed, and I'm not sure that makes sense.

    I understand why yesterday's or prior all day events are dimmed, because they are in the past, but an all day event for today isn't technically in the past.

    So I recommend that all day events for today be shown in "My…

  5. Larger indicators for flags/categories for messages

    Categories and Flags should have more visible color indicators- the minimal style is hard to parse visually as it can be in different places. If there is only one applied, then a full background color (like in the old days) would be wonderful. But even having a larger bar that is full height on the left side would be much more useful than the moving items we have now.

  7. Fix the issue so that hyperlinks in emails work again in Mac 16.38 to Chrome.

    Basically you cannot click on Hyperlinks in emails and they automatically open in Chrome like they used to. Sooooo Annoying. This happened when I updated to 16.38 Mac version.

  8. Support for Online Archive policies

    When using Online Archiving it would be useful to have access to the archive policies when right-clicking a folder or email.

    In the 'old' Outlook for Mac client this feature was never supported but it is available in Outlook on the Web today.

  9. Need more customization of column widths

    Right now all the panes are quite large. Right now I pretty much have to use Outlook full screen if I want to get the folder list, message list, message body, and My Day all on the screen without having to do a ton of scrolling left and right on the message. Not sure if this should be fixed with the ability to change the font size in the folder list, auto-resize the calendar widget as we shrink the column size, a combination of those, something.

  11. Individual Account Notification Settings

    Now that we are forced to add shared mailboxes like they are standalone accounts, it would be great if we could modify notification settings on each individual account. I now have 8 different accounts all giving notifications and adding to the unread count. It's annoying.

  12. Make an even smaller text option than the current smallest.

    Simply to add greater range to the current text size slider, particularly on the smaller side. Would be great to have one or even two smaller steps as options to select.

  13. Stop collapsing mailboxes after each update

    It's very frustrating having to expand all my mailboxes each time an update is installed. This behaviour did not occur on the old version

  16. Let us turn off or customize the scrollbar

    The scrollbar in the mailbox list and mail list is way too close to the item numbers/ date of the mail. Please give it a bit more space to breathe or let us customize the width/ turn them off.

  18. Allow attachments to be uploaded to an email before choosing the recipient.

    at the moment you need to choose the recipient in the "To' field BEFORE adding attachments. Otherwise the attachments aren't sent at all.
    Some of us attach and compose beforehand to make sure email is complete and accurate before sending.

  19. Ability to rename inbox folders. (Possibly a bug).

    I suggest you check into when creating an inbox folder that you can rename the folder. This maybe a bug.
