  1. Make it Possible to Forward an Email in Drafts

    Up until the most recent release, you could forward an email that was in the drafts folder. You could basically leave email templates in there and just forward as needed. Now, there is no way to forward a draft email.

    You have to fix this!

  3. Increase attachment file size

    In the previous version of Outlook, I was able to send a 50mb file to a colleague. When trying to send the same file in the new Outlook, it's saying that the file size exceeds 33mb.

  4. KQL search

    Need easy KQL search help guide and saved searches of the same. This to more easily allow AND/OR/NOT and other more complex email searches along with the ability to save them. The older Mac client allows extensive use of "Smart Folders" and use of "raw query" utilizing Mac's spotlight search syntax.

  5. favorite folders in right sidebar, when not expanded

    Show favorite folders on the side bar if not expanded, the space is anyway unused and it would be very helpful!

    reinstate the ability to edit received messages. This was in the old version and is useful for changing the subject lines to something more meaningful or adding your own notes to the emails.

  9. Add the find relates messages from sender to Outlook for Mac..

    There are some features in the Microsoft version that make search for messages easier. The ability to color internal company email is great. In Mac the categories work to do the same.

    Also, the right click on a message and "find related messages or all messages from sender.." is a great Windows feature that I am sure Mac users would appreciate.

    Thank!

  10. Allow for emails to be linked to via URL

    Often I want to reference an email received or sent during an upcoming meeting. I don't want to attach the email to the meeting invite, but rather create a link/URL that, when clicked, opens the email in question.

  12. Respect turning off composing HTML messages

    When I deselect "Compose messages in HTML by default" I expect new messages to be composed as Plain Text. Likewise, when I also deselect using the original format for replies, I expect replies to be in Plain Text. Please respect these setting from preferences.

  14. We need an option to allow outlook to download ALL emails across all folders like in Windows.

    We need an option to allow outlook to download ALL emails across all folders like in Windows. I live on planes and in a disconnected state. I require all my emails downloaded in outlook at all times. I can't search only to find out that only the least 2 weeks of messages are there. It's horrible. The old outlook works much better

  15. Include the "View Reply" button in the new outlook when looking at a thread.

    This is present on the old version and makes it easy to see what your response was. Thanks!
