  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

  3. 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.

  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.

  6. 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.

  7. 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.

  9. make it possible to search the junk folder.

    Lots of emails go to the junk folder and it would be helpful to be able to check if something has gone there that shouldn't have by searching by keyword/email address. The iPhone mail app supports this but the Android outlook app does not.

  10. 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.

  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.

  17. 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?

  19. please add the ability to view / tag mails based on different flags / categories (feature available in desktop & web version)

    in web & desktop version of outlook, we can tag the mails based on various custom categories and colored flags of our own. it usually helps in searching / identifying the mails easily. it would be nice to have that feature extended to outlook mobile as well.
