Outlook for Android

make a search function that actually works.

search function is useless. it brings up irrelevant emails if it doesn't bring up your entire inbox. it brings up emails that don't even contain your search term.

    I agree, searching emails is not accurate and often doesn't show any results even though they do exist.

    no, this is not fixed- trying to search for an old email or contact is difficult so I have to go to Outlook on my laptop. I'm about to ditch outlook for Android because it is so bad.

    the search function is primitive in the app. I can't search in categories like name, subject etc. like I can on the desktop version. Very frustrating

    As of Jan. 18 2019, search function is not helpful at all. it doesn't yield any results from email messages
