  2. Mini view

    Be able to reduce the whole window to a single pane view listing last 5 emails, next 3 calendar appointments, and month calendar view. Kind of like the right calendar strip with minimized emails at the top

  4. Fix replies from search lists

    When search results appear, if you right click and reply or reply all, the new message pane does not pop open or over, but the draft gets created and added to your drafts folder. Each time you try to click reply, it adds a new draft. So impossible to reply to a message that you have searched for.

  5. PDFs reply

    Edit of PDFs attachments with the option to reply with the file, it is already a function within Mail and should be considered.

  10. Create Reminders From Outlook

    Just like Apple Mail, it would be nice if the reminders created from Outlook through share function could have a link back to the Outlook message, just like it happens on native Mail app.

  11. Use C to categorize emails - same as web access

    In the latest outlook web access pressing "C" while on any email instantly brings up a dialog box to categorize that email. The dialog box is even smart enough that if you type any text of the category it truncates the list. To do this in the desktop app requires many clicks - very inefficient.

  12. Reoccurring appointments

    Under the custom options for reoccurring appointments, it would be nice to see hourly as an option. I have multiple tasks that need to be completed every 6 hours, and others more frequently. Currently, I have to create multiple appointments per day and set them for a daily reoccurrence. It would be nice to only make 1 appointment and set it for x hours reoccurrence.

  13. Provide O365 password expiry reminder

    FOR Exchange Online-backed accounts - would it be possible to allow Outlook to provide the 14-day reminders prior to password expiry?

    Our Mac endpoints are not domain-bound and I get frequent requests from end users who don't spend any time in the web applications for a reminder prior to their O365 password expiry.

  14. Bring back hilighting all emails with same subject when not using conversation view

    Outlook for MAC

    In several versions back, I requested to bring back highlighting emails that contain same subject when not using conversation view. It got several supporting comments, but eventually got a response of something like, not in the direction we wish to go.

  15. Within the help function within outlook, the ability to create multiple reports, i.e. a "new" button in that UI would be useful.

    Currently, you can only manage one issue at a time. SO if you have an unresolved issue, you can't report a new one via the in-app reporting. This is suboptimal, especially for those on insider builds.

  16. Bring back ability to add multiple conference rooms in the meeting

    There was a really handy ability in scheduling assistance to add multiple rooms at ones and have an ability to understand its load / when meeting start/stop, etc.
    Please bring that back. Adding one at a time is way too complicated.

  18. Search Results Displayed After Search Box Cleared

    There does not seems to be an intuitive way to clear a search and have Outlook display all items. I cleared out the search bar at the top of the window, but Outlook still only displayed the search results.

  20. Distance between the folder names is to big

    UI

    The distance between the folder names at the left pane is too big and the font must be customizable
