Known issues?

  • Favorites are local-only; thus, Favorites added in Outlook for Windows or web don’t show up on Mac and Favorites on Mac don’t roam
    • We are working to enable this in the future
  • Dynamic folders like Online Archive and Smart Folders cannot be added to Favorites

The following have been addressed:

  • Favorites can be added and removed via context menu / menu; drag & drop support coming soon - done
  • Favorites are sorted alphabetically; support for re-ordering is coming soon - done
  • Groups can only be added to Favorites using the File > Folder menu; context menu support coming soon - done
