        Hey there!

        If you’re not enjoying the Focused Inbox feature, you can turn it off in your settings. By switching the option off within your settings, the toggle option on the top of your inbox will disappear and all your mails will appear chronologically across your inbox. If you have further questions, we have some talented people ready to assist at Settings > Help & Feedback > Contact Support.

        Thank you again for your support, we look forward to hearing more of your ideas very soon.

        All the best,

          Hi there,

          Thank you for using Outlook Mobile and sharing your ideas with us. We really appreciate your support.

          It is currently already possible to select multiple emails at once. To do so, long press on an email until a checkmark appears at the left of it. Once you’ve selected multiple emails, you’ll then be able to perform bulk actions on them, like deleting, marking as read, archiving… A “Select All” option will also appear in the top right corner.

          Having trouble finding the feature? Let our in app support team know by going to settings > help & feedback > contact support. We’re here to help.

          Thank you again for your support, we look forward to hearing more of your ideas very soon.

            Hey, Everyone!

            We added some features to make deleting emails faster.

            You can customize your left and right swipe actions for easier deletion of emails without opening them. To do so head to the app Settings > Swipe Options from there you will be able to choose from a list of swipe actions.

            We also have included the ability to mass delete multiple emails at one time: To do so Tap and hold any email in the folder > top on the 3 vertical dots on the top right corner > Choose select all > Tap the trash icon at the top of the screen.

            We currently do not have the setting to delete emails directly from the notification but you can help us by adding your votes and comments to the following link: https://outlook.uservoice.com/forums/293346-outlook-for-android/suggestions/8065947-allow-customized-buttons-in-notifications-such-as

              Hi there,

              Thank you for using Outlook and taking the time to share your experience with us.

              We currently only support the latest version of the app, available in the app store. This means that it is not possible to go back to older versions of the app at the moment.

              If you’re having trouble with the current version, please let our in app support team know by going to Settings > Help & Feedback > Contact Support.

              All the best

              • Make "Focused"/"Other" inbox feature optional.

                I'm not a big fan of Outlook sorting my email for me and would like an option under settings to revert to pre-focus style inboxing. I can appreciate that others may like this feature, so I think making it optional is the best of both worlds.

                • remove the "focus" tab, you are taking extra time from our busy day by making us keep switching back and forth between focus and regular !

                  please make the focus tab optional its annoying and adds time to checking email. does not load properly on the desktop and it is super annoying having to search two places for emails.

                                  Hello there: As much as we’d like to provide customizable options for everyone to choose from, this one is a technical impossibility with the way Outlook has been set up. POP3 downloads email from a server to a single computer, then deletes it from the server. Because of this, it can appear that mail is missing or disappearing from your Inbox if you try to check your mail from a different computer. One of the benefits of Outlook on Android (and iOS) is the ability to manage your important messages from multiple devices you use throughout the day. Thank you for your understanding, and we are working hard to bring more improvements to you as fast as we can!
