    I have sub-folders in my Inbox with individuals names or to categorize my emails. When we install outlook app on cell, we have to go in each sub-folder and initiate emails download by clicking Get Messages for that particular folder. Our corporate users have over 50 Sub-folders and it looks so stupid to initiate download in so many folders.

    To get a notified message I need to click on the notification, have it say "message not available", back out to the message list, refresh it then select the original message. If it's showing on the notification it should already be loaded.

    outlook on mobile is useless if it can't leverage mobile features like notification; could you consider linking up mailbox folder rules to notification

    APP shouldn't be connecting to Server every time I open an email. it should download entire email including attachments as and when it arrives.

    It can still connect to server for syncing but it should not delay opening an email.

    Please enable auto download including images for faster and offline viewing of mails instead of waiting on opening the mail.

    The app in previous versions let download attachments even if you don't have apps for open the file downloaded

    The client is basically displaying server info instead of client info. It should display and give notifications only for mails which has already been downloaded by the service

    i recieve a lot of e-mails daily and need to save 99% of them, so it would be great to be able to download in bulk

    Morons bothered to build a "link preview" feature but couldn't be bothered to provide a convenient download button? Says a LOT about their priorities....

    But please make an option to disable/enable automatic download of images, that just increases spam (tracing image). It is already blocked by default for unknown contacts in Outlook for Windows.

    you can receive the notification of an email but if you lose connectivity between the notification and being able to read it, you can't access it.

    give visual notification similar to WhatsApp when new mail is received
