  1. remove the "focus" tab, you are taking extra time from our busy day by making us keep switching back and forth between focus and regular !

    please make the focus tab optional its annoying and adds time to checking email. does not load properly on the desktop and it is super annoying having to search two places for emails.

    Hey there!

    If you’re not enjoying the Focused Inbox feature, you can turn it off in your settings. By switching the option off within your settings, the toggle option on the top of your inbox will disappear and all your mails will appear chronologically across your inbox. If you have further questions, we have some talented people ready to assist at Settings > Help & Feedback > Contact Support.

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

    All the best,

  2. Make "Focused"/"Other" inbox feature optional.

    I'm not a big fan of Outlook sorting my email for me and would like an option under settings to revert to pre-focus style inboxing. I can appreciate that others may like this feature, so I think making it optional is the best of both worlds.

    Hi there,

    Thank you for using Outlook Mobile and sharing your ideas with us. We really appreciate your support.

     It is currently already possible to change the default signature on the app. To do this, simply tap in “Settings” and Under “Mail”, tap “Signature”

    Enter your signature or switch the toggle to enable “Per Account Signature” and then enter signatures for each of your accounts. 

    Having trouble finding the feature? Let us know through the Help section of the app in the Settings. We’re here to help.

  4. Signature selection

    It would be more convenient, when having multiple accounts with a signature programmed for each one, that when writing a new email, the signature changes automatically when selecting another account than the default one in the list.

    Currently, even if you change the account, the signature still showing is the one from the default account.

    Hi there,

    Thank you for using Outlook Mobile and sharing your ideas with us. We really appreciate your support.

    There are a few quick and easy way to delete emails from the Outlook app.

    1. Delete button in reading view.

    Simply tap on the “trash” icon on the upper right corner of the screen to delete the email that’s currently open.

    2. Swipe to delete.

    Swipe the email to the left. By default, this will archive the email. However, you can customize Swipe Options in the Settings and change the action to Delete.

    3. Bulk delete.

    This is very useful when you want to delete multiple emails at once. To do this, long press on an email until a checkmark appears at the left of it. Once you’ve selected multiple emails, you’ll then be able to perform the following actions: deleting, marking as read, archiving. A “Select…
