        It's great that the mail client supports aliases setup on Outlook.com/Hotmail.com etc. but it lacks support for aliases on IMAP/POP accounts. Add some type of verification system to curb spamming (e.g.: send email to the alias and verify its received by Outlook; or some kind of challenge-response via email with a temporary token code etc.)

        Vous devriez ajouter l'option de déconnecter sur l'application Outlook, et c'est le même problème pour Yahoo et Gmail. Si ma tablette est volée  l'individu  peut en tout moment via une connexion internet  rentrer dans ma boîte mail, merci la vie privée. Et il n'y a pas de boîte mail mieux ou pire qu' Outlook  vous devriez tous ajouter cette déconnexion

        Merci d'en tenir compte

        The changes already made to allow changing the sending address from any alias was pretty awesome.

        Making it match up automatically would be perfection.

        Allowing a change from the automatic match up, a bonus.

        I'm far from perfect, and after a decade+ of not having to think about it, I'm still sending from the wrong addresses despite the recent improvement.
        My fault for being such an idjit, but maybe you could help? ;-)

        Please make it possible to choose the "FROM" email address, like on the web site (Outlook) and like the iOS app!
        It is possible in the iOS app, why not in the Android app???
        It is a very important feature for me.

        I need to be able to change the from address while writing a new mail just as it used to be in the hotmail app and first outlook versions and as it is on the web client. Changing the default does not work for me since I would have to go into the web configuration in order to change the default for every single email that I need to send using one of my aliases

        I have 2 email accounts for Outlook that I combined and I want to be able to change the reply or create email address to any of the 2, not just the original email address. I could do this on my outlook app on an iPhone.

        I have my Yahoo account connected to my Outlook.com account, but I'm unable to select my Yahoo alias for the From field in the Outlook for Android app. This functionality works in the Outlook for Windows 10.

        I haven't got a clue as to how I receive so much junk mail & ads in my phone. if deleting my email & gmail acts will STOP THE TRASH... MAIL / ADS FROM FILLING MY RAM then I must delete all accounts and not be able to gain access to the internet. why am I as a consumer who pays for a service NOT GETTING THINGS MY WAY BUT GOOGLE OR MICROSOFT WAYS. I DONT REALLY HAVE ANY SAY IN THIS MATTER DO I???? DEAL WITH WHAT WE GIVE YOU AND LIKE IT OR DELETE OUR SERVICES NEVER TO REOPEN SAME ACCT.

        Currently, when using the iCloud service, it defaults to the primary email of the account and am unable to send using an alias. Also, if setting up the account manually using the IMAP service, it errors out and says to use the correct service. Either enable sending emails using an alias address on iCloud accounts or allow manual setting up of the address using the IMAP service.

        1.The aliases do not populate correctly in app need to sign and keep trying again for it.

        2.Another point is making any alias default does not update the from email address to default automatically user need to change every time from previous default to new one.

        3. The default address does not reflect correctly on app menu pane when scroll from left to right .

        Provide option to use First name and last name differently for different aliases tht might help the true purpose of having different email ids and from security perspective as well.
