Good, but notification badges don't work

Outlook is an absolute powerhouse of an email client. I use it to manage multiple email accounts, and it's wealth of features and integration with other Microsoft 365 software keep me using it. I would absolutely recommend this app to anyone who asked.

There is one issue, however, that makes me rank it four stars instead of five. For some reason, notification badges (the little red circle that pops up on the apps icon when there are unread emails) doesn't work in the macOS App Store version. When I used Outlook downloaded directly from Microsoft's website, and on my iPad and iOS Outlook apps, notification badges work perfectly well. But on the macOS app store version, even though I have my settings configured to give Outlook max notification priviledges and badge notifications are turned on, badges don't update until I open the app - then all of the sudden I'll see the red circle letting me know that I have 6 unread emails. I've verified that this is not an issue with my settings, by double, triple, and quadruple checking that badge notifications are turned on. It really is unfortunate to read important emails later than I otherwise would because I don't see that there are unread emails in my inbox until opening an app window. So, Microsoft, if you would just fix this issue that only exists in the macOS app store version of Outlook, I'd love to increase your rating to 5 stars.

Great support

Have used Outlook forever on various platforms. Every email platform has its plusses and minuses, for me Outlook has always worked better than other options. Never wrote a review before today though. Was having an issue with a Google account that seemed to be an Outlook issue. Outlook frequently solicits feedback and claims to offer support, but I have learned not to expect any support from Microsoft. I tried a chat anyway. Amazingly, I got a knowledgeable person right away. Asked intelligent questions, dug into the problem. In the end we determined it was a bug (which is what I had expected), he submitted an internal bug report. I would have been impressed just getting that far. I was really surprised when 2 hours later the bug was fixed! Maybe a coincidence, but an issue that had been happening consistently for weeks stopped happening. Can't 100% say it was the result of the bug report, but I'm impressed even if it was unrelated due to the quality of the support.

Crash Problems

I love Outlook, it have a great interface and functionality. Calendar synching works great too. However, I am more consistently running into a crash problem. I have the Outlook app downloaded on my 2020 Macbook Air. At least a few times a day, I will be mid-email and my cursor stops blinks and becomes solid, the entire screen freezes, and I need to shut my entire mac down. This ONLY happens with Outlook when typing an email. What's weird, is I use a dual monitor. The extended display works fine. I can browse the internet or use any tabs that are currently opened and displayed on my extended display. However, the Mac itself becomes completely useless - thus the constant hard restarts. Microsoft, if you're reading this review, PLEASE look into this issue. My Outlook and Mac are both up to date and running the most current version, so this is not an update issue.
