        Have multiple accounts (Google, Work etc) and pulls in contacts from all. Need to be able to decide which contacts to pull in from which accounts.

        Fix how emails are listed under the People pulldown. I have multiple email addresses correctly entered in the cloud at Hotmail.com. This app arbitrarily lists my home address as work. Why? And sometimes the app lists only one address out of three, and zero phone numbers out of four. I usually have to exit the app and restart it for everything to show up. That's not very productive.

        This app is "wrong" in relating an email address to the name of the sender of the 1st email received, neither automatically updating the name according to subsequent emails received, nor by allowing manual editing ... or at least allowing to delete such "People" whose associated names are obviously wrong.

        I will get notifications for new emails, but when I touch them (or open the app), they are not present in my inbox. sometimes they show up later, sometimes I have to shut the app and reopen, sometimes I have to reboot. pretty annoying.

        For example, I edit the Subject of all confirming purchases with the Amount and Description to quickly identify the transaction. I also cut and paste one email into another to keep a running account of the conversation when the return emails are not replies. There are many other reasons to Edit an email.

        in my schools email we have office 365, when you write an email or a price there is a toolbar so you can edit your text for example make it bold italic or change the color highlight and it also has a place for smiley faces. that would be a cool feature on the mobile as well.

        Full contact info sometimes briefly shows to subsequently dissapear, notvto be seen again. Problem occurs on Google account. Not tested for other.

        I frequently look for the same contacts in my exchange directory. a way to favorite them and save then to my device would be great.

        Have the ability to add a contact from a received email and enable an option to display of graphics/pictures in an opened email on a case by case basis.

        Allow users to customize and personalize their outlook. We could have the options to personalize appearance, colour, layout, font etc. It may make the app more fun to use and fosters creativity and promotes individuality.
