Just block a specific e-mail or contact you don't want to receive more.
Simple as that.

Below the search bar is "Contacts", on the right side is the "+" sign to add more. There should be one to delete the ones already in existence.
Need to have an option to save contact details of outlook to mobile phone contacts
Paul Anderson commented
O365 mailbox contact sync to the Outlook app takes hours, even if you perform a manual sync and it tells you it did it right away. This should not be the case. Also, emailing multiple people and switching recipients between To and CC is very laborious, so this should be improved too.
Malcolm Gardner commented
contacts need to be more straightforward to navigate, synchronise and have some real crm built in.
Jakob Riis Kristoffersson commented
Add Outlook contacts to the app and make it sync automatically. If you can do it with the calendar, you can do it with contacts ;)

on my old phone I was able to set it up so that important contacts would chime when I got e-mails from them. If that's still a thing it's harder than necessary to find!
Paul Dunkley commented
contact which sync need to be included if you want to compete. also your app is already twice the size of your competitors who DO include contacts. come on Microsoft. with all your resources you can do better.
Marie Martin commented
if you send a person an email already, it will pop up, but I would like to be able to add them manually. Change their name and so on.
Gerry Wallace commented
What I really dislike about the current Outlook for Android app is that when you save a contact into the app, it puts both the first and last name together into one field somehow. It doesn't treat it like the desktop app where it automatically picks up first and last name and saves it that way.

Put contacts in the same place on home page.
André Marinho commented
I can't even add an email contact
Volker Leitzgen commented
If you look for contact details, we need to be able to edit all details of the contact within the OM Android App
Vince Baker commented
Can't sort contact list like most apps. can't view LinkedIn related contact info. Contact editing often crashes. app doesn't follow OS dark theme.

1. I like having a contacts shortcut on my Android home screen; I don't like having to open Outlook, select the search tab and then tap the contacts accordion just to see a list of contacts.
2. The Outlook app does not show contact pictures from my Office365 account; it only shows pictures from the company directory.
3. The Outlook app cannot create shortcuts to particular contacts on my Android home screen.
4. I can't edit contacts in the Outlook app without first saying OK to syncing with Android contacts. If I do this, then I wind up with hundreds of sync conflicts showing up in Outlook for Windows 10.

Outlook is inconsistent on different platforms.
