  4. Google Inbox features would be great, to do style mail handling, automatic folders for promos, updates etc

    Google Inbox, removed old style email metaphors and brought to do style inbox organization, they also categorize mails in different folders automatically, like financial, updates, promos, etc, this is much better way than traditional style of email handling.

    Hi there,

    Thank you for using Outlook and giving us feedback on features we should add. We really appreciate your support.

    It is currently already possible to select multiple emails to delete them. To do so, press and hold the round icon at the left of an email until checkboxes appear. Once you’ve selected multiple emails, you’ll then be able to perform bulk actions on them, like deleting, marking as read, archiving…

    Having trouble finding the feature? Let us know through the Help section of the app under the Settings and we’ll assist you.

    Thank you again for your support, we look forward to hearing more of your ideas very soon.

  8. Fix screen rotation

    Screen rotation in inbox or mail leads to reload of them instead of quick re-rendering.

  9. Allow delete from the task bar.

    the only option is to archive, I would rather have the option to delete. Or give an option to select which one people prefer.

    Hi there!

    You can currently change the default signature for each of your email accounts from “Get outlook for Android” to any signature you wish to have. To do so please go to Settings>Signature>On the next screen you can set one signature for all email accounts you have connected to the Outlook app or you can tap on the toggle switch on the top right to set individual signatures for each of your emails separatly>When finished tap on the check mark on the top right corner of the screen to save the changes.

    If you have any trouble doing so please contact our in-app support team know by going to settings> help & feedback > contact support as we are not able to see replies to this address.

    Thank you again for your support, we look forward to hearing more of your ideas very soon.

    Hey, Everyone!

    Great news! Now your Swipe to mark as read option also doubles to include swipe to mark as unread. Simply set either your left or right swipe to Mark as read by going to settings > scroll down to swipe options> tap on swipe options and then you will be given the ability to change your left and right swipe settings.

    Having trouble with these features? Let our in app support team know by going to settings> help & feedback > contact support. We are here to help!

    Thank you again for your support, we look forward to hearing more of your ideas very soon.

  12. Allow users to flag subfolders as "favorites" so they appear in the main email account list for quick and direct access.

    I have multiple email accounts with subfolders in each. Often I need to expand an email account and keep expanding if there is more than one level of folders. This becomes annoying when doing this repeatedly throughout the day. if I could flag specific folders that are priority and then view these at the same level as the main email accounts, it would save a lot of time. These "favorite" folders should have a count of unread items and should also have push enabled. if this cannot be done in the same list, perhaps a separate tab could work.

  18. Quiet Time

    Quiet time on the old version was very helpful, prevented me from having to put my device in either silent or airplane mode manually.

    If you have any questions or need assistance locating this feature please contact our in-app support team by going to Settings>Help & Feedback> Contact Support.

    Blocked contacts and blocked lists created on the web portal or any other platforms for your email prover will sync with the Outlook mobile app. Outlook mobile will then filter out blocked contacts helping to keep your mobile inbox clutter free.
