Search folder names when moving emails
When moving an email to a folder, I'd like to be able to start typing the folder name and then the folder appears. Useful if you have lots of folders.
As I go through my email, I frequently move items to particular folders. It is way too easy to select an incorrect folder by mistake on a phone. It's also too easy to accidentally select "ignore conversation" when you want to select "not junk." Please, please bring that option back!
this app does not allow moving emails to folders easily. The move to feature lacks of a search field to find folders.
The list of folders does not collapse or expand. This makes de list too long to browse.
Also the folders list does not scroll to the sides so you are only able to see few letters of the folder name.

Ease of use similar to outlook desktop client or even windows explorer favourites, will make it easier for people to move their mail from inbox to a folder rather than having to traverse the entire directory of folders

please when I want to move a message to a folder at least give me a search /filter function to get faster to the right folder. or even better give me the best fit of suitable folder or integrate the "simply file " product which I use also on my desktop outlook

start typing to search for emails by someone. this reorders the folder by name and jumps to who I want.

when moving emails to folder, provide a search option or quick find. can be quite difficult to locate as is, with every single folder and sub folder to scroll through. also bring back flag notes or add postit notes to email

I already have my go-to folders pinned as favorites, so having the search function initiated as soon as I click on "Move to folder" makes my keyboard come up and takes up half of my screen. Every. Time.
Please revert this change back to how it worked before. If I want to search for a folder name (which I never do) I'll use the search function, but please don't force the initiation of the search function each time.

when I want to move an email in a folder I have to scroll all folders while on iOS I can write the name of the folder and pick it. moreover it's not possible to create subfolders in desired locations but only in the main "folder" folder.

Provide type & search option while moving email to another folder
ios has ability to search for folder name rather than having to scroll through all my folder lists this is crazy and takes too long I should be able to spell a name of the folder and outlook finds it ! why is outlook for IOS different from android!!!

Add search box when mowing to folder. Now I have to scroll down through my long list...

Contacts on mobile phone is a critical feature to users and the ability to manage contacts in Outlook app is essential.
in addition, management of emails by moving to folders, is missing a feature in the Android version, which is available in iOS. I cannot type the name of the folder, but I have to search the whole list. in iOS and on the web, I just search by name, which is faster.

when I select "move" I have to scroll through hundreds of folders instead of just going to a search function

when you are organising your inbox into folders it takes forever to find the folder. in the webmail version of o365 you can search. this needs to be added to mobile client

When moving an email into a folder if life to search for it love I do on iOS and not have to scroll through all my folders.

The 365 version on web has a search typing box to file into folders. I have hundreds of folders so scrolling is awful.
Antonia Cermak-Terzian commented
instead of scrolling down the list of folders it would be helpful to have a quick search function that helps find the folder you're looking for faster.
This feature is finally added as of 15 October!

When you sort out emails from the root (inbox) folder to other folders, please implement mail folder index search to find the folder you need. Now you have to scroll the whole folder tree to find the right folder , spending a lot of time.
Such a function is impemented e.g in Nine Folders mail client
