It would be more be more easier for us users of the app to manage the mail folders by having those options of neither adding, removing and or editing the name of the folder as well. Thanks
i have this problem and use a forum todescribe the problem.
My quistion was as follow
i have the outlook app install on my samsung (android) mobile and is very happy for this app, I cant find a other one i want tu use.
The problem is that on the mobile i have a folder call "myContacts" in my delete folder and i cant delete for good,
I know you have to log in on the PC to delete it from there. The problem is that it dont show the folder in the delete folder on the PC. It dont show the folder there,
I have try to reset the account in the app, i have delte the app and install it again, Turn the mobile off and on again but nothing help.
If i make a new folder on the mobile phone and then delete it then you can see this new folder on pc and you can delete it again. Here is the function correct, but you cant still se the folder i have the problem with. have tried to install different version of the outlook app but nothing helps.

I did a test on my android phone. And I seem to reproduce your situation somehow: 1) try to create a new folder in Outlook on mobile, but as far as I know, we cannot directly create a new folder in the Outlook for Android. So, I use a workaround, open the inbox folder and then press and hold an email for seconds. On the up-right corner click … > Move to other folders. In the new opened page, click “ +” to create a new folder. Then move the email to the new folder. 2) Then delete this folder from PC, since there is no delete option on mobile app. 3) this folder was indeed deleted and appeared in Deleted items both on PC and mobile. 4) Now, I try to delete this folder in Deleted Items from PC, and then the folder disappears. 5) But I found this folder still exists in the Deleted Items on mobile app.
Therefore, it seems to be a problem with the mobile client. It is recommended that please give a feedback to https://outlook.uservoice.com/forums/293346-outlook-for-android and post your scenario there. Let our program engineer listen to your opinions.
Your understanding will be highly appreciated.

When using email via mobile, please make a function in which we can delete folders. As of right now, we can only create folders. Even when deleting folders on desktop, it doesn't sync up to mobile, they still show up (although empty) - there is no way to delete unwanted old folders.

to allow deleting a folder from the android outlook app

add the option to delete unwanted folders in settings
old deleted folders uploaded to my tablet from my laptop. However they are not organized under "deleted items" folder like on laptop, but are populated every single thing I ever deleted, in a loooong list I must scroll thru in order to find recent needed items!. There should be a means of getting rid of these to clean it up and keep things organized. Creating and deleting folders and being able to drop emails into these folders is a changing visceral task that is needed during case management. definitely need the ability to delete a folder.

The android app creates new folders at the same hierarchy as the Inbox. It should create them as subfolders of Inbox instead.

Let me erase which folder I choose from the app. It is kind to absurd the idea of not not be able to manage your account the way you want, from a device in which you need to care for free space. Enable all folder options on the app.

not able to delete folder
Marcus Gärtner commented
I am using several Email Accounts in Outlook. Inside Mailbox there is no Identication for which Account mail is. Also the Felder inside Account is not shown
After creating a Mail Folder and after awhile find that the created folder is no longer required, the folder cannot be deleted. Creating numerous unneccesary folders.

Folders - We need access to add or delete or organize all Folders in multiple Outlook Mail Accounts. Also need to address issues with missing common folders and missing personal folders within a Outlook Mail Account.....
A few days ago they added ability to create folders when moving emails. But folders are created outside of Inbox, which is not what i want. Still don't see a way to create folders without moving or to delete them.

Show subfolders in inboxes for android cell phones.
Robert Scullion commented
I, as I'm sure many others could use Inbox unique subfolders for specific clients to keep track of ongoing project communications.

No option to delete folders in the app. Tried desktop version in browser and holding down on the folder to "right click and delete" doesn't come up or work. Something so simple and basic should be an option on the app.
