  1. Adding contact doesn't work

    When I add a contact for my outlook account it won't be added. Do a short period the contact is there but then it dissappears. I added the contact via the android contact app. I definitely chose my outlook account but it won't be added

        • fix the Password change problems

          every time my password has to be chnged this leads to problems. I have to fill out the password again and again and again. There seems to be no solution for this. You have to delete the account details and reconnect with the email account, then it works again. After that, all old mails aren't shown anymore (just in outlook online). This has to be done at every password change and its getting pretty annoying.

          • Android outlook expand/collapse folders

            Once you expand folders in Android app there is no way to collapse them
            The only way to collapse is to close and reopen the app.

                  • Displaying junk email address

                    Junk email address shows in 'TO' contact list. This should not happen and has only started since the upgrades. No need to store or keep junk email address to display as valid email address that I wish to send emails too.

                    • update the app to target Android 8.0 Oreo and make use of the adaptive icons API.

                      The app is still targeting Nougat, and should be updated to target Oreo to enable the better notification controls and to utilize the adaptive icons API to further improve the apps coherency on users devices.

                      Unrelated: It also could be cool to utilize the Picture in Picture mode with the message composer so we can reference our in progress emails while checking on other information in spreadsheets and the like.

                      • Calendar file attachments including embedded inline images

                        When creating a calendar entry in desktop Outlook with attachments such as Office docs, odd or images these should sync to the Android outlook calendar. Similarly any inline images in the desktop calendar entry should appear inline in the Android application. Currently attachments are lost and images only appear as empty place holders where the image should appear.

                        • Keep the format of the email when you Reply or Reply All. I.E. copied spredsheets don't look the same when sent on app.

                          I was trying to add other people to an email thread, but when i did it on the app on my phone, the format of the previous emails completely changed. A spreadsheet that was copied on the the body of an email did not maintain its format when forwarded or replyed too. It was in a format that nobody could understand.

                                A message that includes rich text (HTML?) and has a bulleted list does not display correctly. The bullets do not display, and the first letter of each bulleted paragraph is cut off on the left. I cannot scroll to the left and I cannot zoom out to see the missing text.

                                    the scheduled folder cannot be renamed. trying to rename it on a desktop keeps reverting back to an old name that was assigned to it during the previous app version.

                                    • Completely eliminate the confusing and extraneous "VIP Inbox". Stop with the excessive " Unusual sign-in activity" lock-outs.

                                      The "Unusual sign-in activity" lockouts are extremely annoying! Thousands of westerners in 'the big China' (PRC) are unable to use their GMail accounts, so many turn to Hotmail email.

                                      Your security measures should take into account ISP's behind The Great Firewall, and stop frequent lock-outs and pestering messages.

                                      Hotmail also overlooks a successfully answered forced verification, and makes users verify yet again.

                                        • Honour Android global Sync flag

                                          When the Sync is disabled on the Android global level the Outlook keeps getting new emails even over Wi-Fi. This is quite annoying bug.
