    • Allow search and multiple move/delete.

      When I search for a sender for example, I cannot select multiple and delete or move or as anything else.

      • Searching mail doesn't work properly. It just takes content from the mail and not subjects or senders

        Searching mail doesn't work properly. It just takes content from the mail and not subjects or senders. Also all mails don't appear even with the search queries.

        The speed is also frustratingly slow

        • Improve the ability to search for specific emails in the Outlook app, even for emails received years ago.

          The email search functionality in the Outlook app seems to be limited when compared to the browser search functionality.

          finding emails / specific emails through the browser is quick, easy and I'm able to find both recent and old emails quickly with the given search criteria, however, in the Outlook app trying find find specific email which I know I received just 2 or 3 days ago aren't always displayed in the search results, leaving me with only one choice to open Outlook through the browser to find the email.

          • Filter by category

            I categorize emails on desktop because read emails are all in the same folder if no further action is required. When away from the office I have no efficient way of retrieving emails without filter by category. filter and search takes too long as it is today.

            • Create a clean up folder like outlook 2013 and the ability to delete emails from custom search results.

              Create a clean up folder to remove redundant messages like outlook 2013 and the ability to delete emails from custom search results. It's 2018 and this shouldn't be a feature...

              • Proper search - in current folder, from sender, subject includes, key words, etc

                Search function must enable search in current folder, search from a given sender and search words in the subject of the email. Ideally the search UI will be identical to the UI of the search in Outlook for Windows

                • revert to the search option how it was before

                  the new search means you open a new screen, so when you are done, you have to close at least 2 windows to revert to the inbox, it's time consuming. I couldn't also see the emails I was looking for once the "contact" was found. if I search for a name, I want to see the emails, not their details.

                  • Only search the folder you are in, like the full version searches only the folder or root folder plus subfolder.

                    at the moment, if you select a folder, then do a search, it still searches the whole inbox. would be good to only search the folder.

                    • filter search results by folder

                      The search results seem to aggregate items from all folders that match the query string, but often I'm looking for an item in a specific folder, and it's not possible to search just a single folder.

                        • Have search look in my personal contacts

                          There is a matching article that says this has been fixed ("completed"), but my current build still doesn't search my personal contacts in the business account (Microsoft mailbox) ... I stopped using the dogfood build because the public build used to let me focus my search on my contacts only... But now that the "new search" has gone to the public build, no way to search my personal contacts from the app... I need to use MOWA or desktop Outlook... As my friend from the OM team would say, we need to unfuck this...

                              Search the same way!!! I searched a sent email, not found. Log in to the portal and search and find the email in 2 seconds. Why do they both not work the same??

                                • Move android search bar to bottom of screen

                                  search button is at bottom of the screen but subsequent search bar is at top. hard to reach the search bar without repositioning the phone so it's tough to use. Would be greatly improved if the search bar appeared in same area as the search button after you press it.
