Make the Android version of Outlook the same as the desktop version
As I'm reading this ever lengthening list it seems obvious to me that when considered cumulatively, i.e. not losing sight of the forest for the trees, what the masses, aka your customers, want is the same Outlook on their mobile devices as the Outlook on their desktops.

Outlook Android is an incomplete professional experience compared to Windows 10 and 10 mobile. Quality not up to par. Missing features list:
-download new email content based on user habits or time period.
-control of time period download of emails (3days, one week, two weeks, one month, 3 Months, all)
-viewing settings: layout distance between files and folders: Large, normal, compact.
-Automatic reply: option to limit automatic reply to contacts only
-Option to turn off swipe action in email list reading pane
-option turn off email body text preview in the email list reading pane
-option to hide contact icons in the email list reading pane and email account pane.
-no To-Do app task support for outlook calendar
-optimise calenders views similar to Windows 10 and 10 mobile views. Current designs are off

Allow to set the Outlook app UI like the Windows (Mobile and computer) version of Outlook app. It is too much better than the current Android one, more clean, simple and useful.

On an Android, please add Sort by Date(newest/oldest), to/from, subject, as can be done on a desk top device. This will allow a search for an email much easier and quicker.

Outlook on Windows mobile was still much better.

Please Align App Folder Structure so that it mirrors the desktop structure, and KEEP FOLDERS UNEXPANDED UNLESS CLICKED ON. It is very close to impossible to dig through folders on the app and find an email.

the desktop is the best comfertble to use

i love outlook desktop and need outlook mobile to work the same. this mobile version is so basic it doesnt do much. i need tagging, calendar search, event colour coding by my catagories, font and clour access etc. if this app doesn't provide more advanced features ill have to let it drop. too bad because desktop outlook is the best!
add embedded picture support

ability to find all emails from company a or mentions company a and then be able to move to a folder or delete
ability to add/rename/delete folders
calendar, can switch between, day, week, month views.
all the above you can do already on samsung's email and calendar apps so why not outlook?

There are 2 missing options that I can see in the Windows 10 version:
1) Basic fonts formating.
This option I have seen it only in Blue Mail from Android.
2) Week view, it's too have the month view, but in a phone/table the week view is useful too, it used to be in Windows Phone too.

It's annoying that you aren't given the same features on your phone or tablet as you are on Outlook for PC and Mac. If you use an iPad, or any other tablet as a work computer, you're still reliant on a secondary computer with Outlook installed in order to do the most mundane tasks... If you want to reserve a meeting room, you have to do it on PC. The simplified bare bones version of Outlook for iOS and Android makes sense for light users, but please make a work version of the app (possibly a paid for version) that has all features, for professional users.

I have just recently switched to Android, as you are blatantly trying to kill the W10Mobile OS as fast as possible. Maybe you should use one of your development tools to port the the apps that work great in that OS to Android and iOS. festures like grouping eMails by subject, in acending or decending order. I tried using the dumb little switch... it doesn't freaking work... turning it on or off, it doesn't matter. Now I have to go folder by folder, as my eMail rules in my outlook O365 count put certian emails does... just to be annoyed ?
You quit on Me when you quit on W10Mobile... I thought Microsooft loves Android... maybe not so much.
Christopher Sands commented
I'd like formatting for text, signatures that match my Outlook in Office 365.
Desktop Version is not the same as windows mobile, please develop the Android version like the mobile version, not desktop. It is even not possible to make it like the desktop version.
