    • provide full support for Outlook tasks

      I've inquired about this before, i.e. supporting full-featured Outlook Tasks in the Android version. not some dumbed down todo list, but a full fledged database, syncing categories & their colors, all the task fields synced properly. Customizable views. Pocket Informant did it back in Windows CE days, should be a lot easier today given today's phone capabilities. my task dstabase is several thousand items, so you can see why custom views matter

      • offer to resize jpg or photo attachments to small, medium & large before sending so message size limits are better managed

        if multiple photos are attached to an email the email will fail to send. due to hi-res phone cameras usuyallu only 1 or 2 photos can be attached to an email using outlook due to karge attachment size. when photos are attached, the mail client should habe a check button asking if attachments should be resized. if tucked then small, nedium , large radio buttons appear then the resize occurs and mail is sent

        • spam filter settings!

          Emails from my contacts often end up in the spam folder. I would be great if you could change the spam filter intensity in the app.

            • Badge counts per account not overall

              Badge counts recently got enabled for me. Unfortunately the only option is for focused items overall and not focused items per account. My corporate email is too busy and I just got a 157 badge count. My personal email has 2 unread email but I can't see these because of the corporate emails. It doesn't allow badge counts to be enabled/disabled on a per account basis. Please improve, thanks.

                • Sync Calendar with Android built-in Calendar

                  Outlook for Android synchronises contacts with Android built-in contacts. It should do the same for the calendar so that the calendar information is available to other apps. I'm currently using the Nine app to do this. Outlook should do it.

                                        • Make it easier to open attachments.

                                          At present, you have to go to details, then attachments [which does not like to open], then click the attachment you want to read. It's cumbersome, Microsoft can do better.
