Swipe Actions - Mark as Unread
Great news! Now your Swipe to mark as read option also doubles to include swipe to mark as unread. Simply set either your left or right swipe to Mark as read by going to settings > scroll down to swipe options> tap on swipe options and then you will be given the ability to change your left and right swipe settings.

option to mark an email unread is still not available
Thomas Bezak commented
The control in settings still not updated to reflect it is a Read/Unread toggle.
Swipe option is there for Unread.
Kurt Garcia commented
It used to be an option until a release or two ago. Give it back!!
Thomas Bezak commented
So you changed it to a toggle but never renamed the action description. Incredibly frustrating. Glad I can still swipe to unread a mail but you could have made this WAY more clear by proper naming the control/action.
I see a previous post says this option is already available but I don't see this option, I only see mark as read

in the latest update of outlook (March 2019) the swipe functions have been reset. offering all the usual functions, it fails to include the option to swipe to mark as unread. please reinstate this feature!!
Desmond Tang commented
It used to be an option for "Marked as unread". Currently, it has been removed. Please add back. Thanks.

Please include a "Mark as Unread" button on the top right of the screen besides Delete and Archive button. Another solution can also be to customize which icons need to be shown directly. You can keep a limit on max number kf icons though... It would be really very helpful...
was there now missing
Enable "Mark as read" in the swipe options.
When you swipe the an unread message it would be marked as read.
When you swipe a read message it will be marked as unread.

swipe to mark as unread
This has NOT been addressed. What's been addressed is mark as read, which isn't all that useful, given that the app does that by itself.
there have been a few request for this, and you marked them as completed. but they are NOT completed. however, you implemented Mark as read. the opposite, and not that useful feature, as the client does that all by itself. .
