    In the Outlook android app the behavior is to go back to the inbox after moving the email the user opened to a folder. There does not appear to be an option to change this behavior. I'd like to see the option to go to the next message.

    Come on Microsoft ! , I am sure it is not that complicated to give us this option, both on android and Apple versions. You guys do this and Outlook will be the most used Mobile email app in the world. P.S. it would be nice if you could add an option for highlighting different colors to different emails.

    This is the one thing that prevents me from using this app as my go to

    If you do this, make it an option. I ALWAYS want to go back to the inbox, which is how I manage mail on my desktop Outlook too.

    most clients move from email to the next as you delete emails, Outlook for Android always puts you back in Inbox, requiring another click to actually view the next email

    when I've deleted a message I've just read I want to read the next unread one not go back to the inbox

    This is possible from the web Outlook but not from the app. when I read an email and then delete it I would like to automatically go to the body of the following email, while at the moment it go back to the list of emails

    What is another App that will do what this post is describing. I am wasting so much time clicking back and forth through email!!

    In addition on the mobile app I expect to swipe to next email or previous email. or at least have a link to enable this.

    In your email on your laptop, you must go under the SETTINGS - MAIL

    What do you want to happen when you move or delete the item you are viewing?

    You must select: OPEN THE NEXT ITEM

    Please sort this out! It's what's stopping me wanting to use your app day to day.
