Rules allowed too be added for emails organisation, while using you mobile device.
apply rules on e-mail to better organize, for Outlook Android.

the outlook app doesn't let me create rules. there's no way to handle all the spam I get without going to my computer and loading outlook in my browser

With a million and 1 thing going on i forget to put my out of office message WEEKLY. you have a rules function that mimics the out of office email function that has a date span, but that seems redundant. Why not change or add a specific day of the week check off so I may have an auto message sent weekly without me going into the system to do an out of office
no rules in 2021. Uninstalled, garbage app.

Outlook 365 doesn't play nice!

Still want this feature on the android app, come on 2021 release!
Without rules for Outlook on Android it's going in the bin. I can't believe it was released without this featuring it's such a basic need.

It would also be very useful to be able to add rules in mobile that will also be used in Windows.

Please please please let us have rules that stay active until we inactivate them in Outlook mobile. That is nearly a deal breaker for me and makes me what to rely more on email clients that do support this feature.

ability to create a rule

The desktop currently only lets me set ONE rule per day, any other attempts at making rules results in an error. And the mobile app doesn't let me make rules AT ALL! There's LITERALLY no button or option for it!
Please let us make all the rules we want, on both platforms.
And for goodness sake, let those rules actually STICK! I keep finding important emails in my Junk folder about 6 months to a year after I've made a rule for it to automatically go into my Important folder! We're talking my Social Security emails, doctor appointment reminders, emails from family members, all my contacts! And they're legitimate ones, not phishing scams (I double-check the deeper info, real email address rather than what's displayed, hovering over links to make sure they go to the proper websites without clicking on them, checking PayPal or my bank's website manually myself to see if the supposed alert is actually there, etc).
And if they don't go to Junk, then they end up back in my general Inbox, and I have to remake the rules that are SUPPOSED to send them to other designated folders all over again!
So please, 1) Make rules actually WORK and not have silent expiration dates.
2) Let us make more than one rule a day on Desktop (Windows 8.1 OS, Chrome browser, if it makes a difference) without an error halting the process.
And 3) Let us make rules on mobile.

I added my work email and it appears as an Exchange icon, which I can access and use for Send and Receive. However, those work emails also, unnecessarily, appear in my personal (Outlook icon) Inbox. This ruins my days off and risks a data security breach...
Email rules to be imported to android app or to be able to create new ones in the mobile app is essential.

The development I'm seeing in Outlook mobile hinders it's use as a productive email client. Please refocus the dev team toward email functionality such as INBOX RULES. I don't need another browser on my phone, Chrome got it covered. Also I don't think the guys across the office would be too pleased to find out the Outlook team are building a browser. Unless there's an Edge email client on the way?
Rules please I can't live without it

It's very annoying that, on my phone, I can't be notified about emails received to folders other than the inbox. most people use their mobile devices (phones, tablets) for work, and assigning a rule to emails works fine on the PC, doesn't work as well on an Android device. I do get the emails to the assigned folder, but I get no notification. Therefore, we need a rules wizard in the Android app just like the one available to the PC version.
In general, the mobile app seems over-simplified for effective use and management for the serious users.

rules enable to redirect emails from specific sender's to one folder. for eg credit card related mails. this enables to simplify my inbox instead.of auto separation of mails.
