  1. Add Search Folders

    Add the ability to sync Search Folders from Desktop app. Gives ability to list emails from Inbox and other folders without having to move them to a different folder.

  2. 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

  5. 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.

  6. 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

  7. Specific folder search

    DO NOT MERGE THIS WITH WRONG IDEAS!!

    Why are you dumbing down the app? Global-Search has become useless as it doesnt have specific folder search and returns a huge list to sort through what I`m searching.
    My specifc request is as follows:
    1. Bring back ability to search specific folder
    2. Put Contacts short cut on home screen

    DO NOT MERGE THIS WITH WRONG IDEAS!!

    Do not mark this thread as completed till you have done this.

  8. I would like to select individual or all emails after I perform a search to either delete, Mark as spam or move a different folder.

    I would like to know how can I select individual or all emails I searched for to either delete, Mark as spam or move a different folder? This function doesn't seem to be available in this app, I can only select emails that are on the inbox and not the ones I performed a search, Please help.

  10. Make search focus on selected folder only, not entire mailbox

    When you search in the Android Mobile application, the app. returns emails from the whole mailbox. I would like it to ask if I want to search in this folder only or in all folders.

  11. 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.

  12. 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.

  18. Filters should work in all folders, not just Inbox…

    This literally was a feature in the Android app until recently, week or two ago maybe. Don't know why devs cut choosing Filters (i.e. Unread, Flagged, Attachments) to only possible in the main Inbox. Most mail gets moved to other folders. Would be great to be able to see only Unread or only Flagged in the other folders too again… Sad we have to suggest things that the Outlook team randomly removes

  19. Make search work the same as the portal.

    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??

  20. Enable Exchange contacts search from the native Android Contacts app

    It is currently not possible to search for Microsoft AD or Exchange contacts from the native Android Contacts app. You can currently only search from within the Outlook app.
