  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

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  7. 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.

  8. 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.

  9. 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.

  10. Allow multiple select of messages after a search filter is applied.

    This is marked as completed in another thread but it is not. Multi select does not work from search results screen.

  11. 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.

  16. impove visual sorting interface (colored tabs or bins for categories)

    improve visual sorting (using categories) or provide alternative to hierarchical folder list...a more intuitive graphical series of categories or actual folders would be great. This could incorporate flag/action status as well. Instead of making custom actions and/or sorting by color categories, categories would appear as either tabs in mail view window or visual "piles" of mail large enough on screen to physically drag and drop things quickly instead of using the category button in ribbon or the tiny custom action toolbar. make it feel more kanban!

  20. Search attachment contents. This was previously available on outlook. But it was removed!

    Under previous versions of outlook for Android I could type a keyword into search and it would search my message bodies, subjects, attachment titles, and attachment CONTENT. Why would a feature that all other email providers have be removed?
