        A button or option that would allow me to mark an email as not spam, and then add the sender to my address book in Outlook

        I was contacting you at the suggestion of the support desk who said this would be of interest. Found response dismissive. Sorry for any inconvenience!!!

        it is still not possible to edit and add contacts from my exchange server. I can see them and if I add it on my Win10 computer they are sycronized. But adding and editing in the app is not available. All the help about this issue which is availsble on the internet doesn't help as there is just one way to add the exchange server.

        at present if I get an email from a new person, there is no ability to add this person directly into contacts, you can do this from a different type of account according to support

        Please put this back the way it was. Also to easily prevent e-mail from selected senders to land in the SPAM folder. How do we easily add new contacts now?

        I set a picture for almost every contact in my Office 365 account.
        I'd like to see those pictures instead of a colorful circle with contact initials.
        It works in Windows 10 Mail/Calendar/Contacts app, in Outlook desktop app, and even in old Windows Phone 8.x, but not yet in Android Outlook app.

        Confusing new interface without a dedicated button for contacts. Please reconsider new UI design and add back the dedicated contacts button.

        I should be able to edit Contacts just like editing a word document, but too many links to whatever.

        i am using outlook app. i tried to delete hotmail contacts. but i couldn't find an option to delete these contacts. the user should have the power to manage their accounts through this app.

        there are contacts saved that I will never contact and a lot of birthday reminders for people I don't even care about.

        Outlook has imported contacts from email. I do not know half of my supposed contacts and I cannot find my friends. I am unable to get rid of these strangers.

        We need the ability to add, edit and delete contacts while away from a computer, the Outlook for Android application could utilize these functions and allow business owners and C-level executives th ability to manage contacts while out networking
