    Now Contact Sync is synchronizing both manually registered contacts and automatically-suggested contact candidates. I want to sync manually-registered contacts only...

    There is now an option for this, but the app continues to ignore it and sync every single person who's ever emailed me into my contacts regardless - which means I start with about three screen's worth of "(unknown)". Not happy!

    For people mixing a personal phone with work who have a lot of persona l contacts, it is annoying, confusing and time consuming to have to sift through irrelevant personal contacts when sending a work email.

    I will never email personal contacts from my work account. I've had Gmail for ten years and have accrued some 2000 contacts. i only have 100 colleagues in total and so to email Work John, i have to scroll through another 30 Friend John's to find the person i want.

    I'm considering buying a second phone, or asking work to put me on our Google domain, as Microsoft Outlook support have told me this feature doesn't exist.

    Place it in the setting to connect them together like before, not force it to happen, now I have old email addresses mixed up with my regular contacts an I can't get rid of them at all.

    These latest updates have doubled my contact list. It's like I have tons of new friends! Friends that all have the same names and phone numbers as friends I already had, yes, but I feel very popular.

    I want this to play puzzles and dragons. I was able to with other email app because it allowed me to play the game under my Google account vand have my email under hotmail. I can't with do that with this app.
