Support tells me I can't get rid of it, which I find hard to believe. May need to switch to a different mail app on my phone.

I don't get any errors I just can't edit a contact's notes with 20+ lines. It won't add the key strokes. The search issue is if you have a contact called Apple ID/iTunes and search just iTunes it won't find it.

The number of contact list sources that are getting redundantly mixed together has become very unmanageable. There needs to be a way to control where they are coming from and functionality or links for editing them.
Not being able to do it is massively inconvenient. Also being able to export to Outlook may be useful so contacts can be backed up.
Outlook for Android refuses to use updated contact info for contact stored in Outlook.com. Looking at Outlook.com in a browser, the contact info did sync. The only way to send an email using the contact's new address is to copy-paste or type the address. From this behavior, doubt any name change would be reflected either. Frustrating!

make it simple to add a contact

you should add an option to fully manage the contacts from you outlook app. Including the birthday management, address, website, ...

Every morning the app should notify me that a certain contact "was last contacted 23 days ago. Would you like to send them a message?"
Gerry Wallace commented
Ensure that you can also save the view that matches Outlook on other platforms. For example, when you save a contact that syncs with the current Samsung Contacts app it puts the firstname and lastname in the same field within the contact card in other versions of Outlook and doesn't recognise that it's a firstname and lastname like it would when you do it in Outlook for desktop.

Edit contacts within the Outlook app rather than the system app
Would like to see a list of all my email [sent and received] contacts in a column under "Sent", "Draft" or anywhere that is easily accessible.

Tried searching for a contact to update but it would only find the same contact from my wife's linked account which I can't edit. Very frustrating when a simple thing like changing a contacts phone number becomes such a challenge.

MSFT needs to add a remove fake contacts inside the email APP

I want to add contacts in my Outlook app, because it is not possible to import my contact list from my phone into Outlook.
Currently you can't open contacts to select contact or there is no tree search as we type in To Cc bcc
