  3. Don't play notification sounds during do not disturb times

    Outlook correctly doesn't show the notification during do not disturb times, but still plays the sound.

  4. set emails to opt-in to focused email so only those Users that you select would be featured, with support for domain add-ons.

    Focused Email is great but if a junk emailer sends you direct mail from a different address each time then you can move to other all you want next time you open your mail you just have version 2 move it and version 3. So instead of just selecting focus email, allow users to set a focused gateway so you can approve email addresses and domains and restrict every thing else. I have been using focused Email for several months now and the same junk gets through... every email domain has the same pattern just different information so that gets…

  6. Show email address for the current Folder list at top of window...

    This feature used to be visible, but has disappeared from latest version of Android app. Please bring it back!
    If using the app to manage multiple email accounts, an icon is not sufficient - or quick - to know which email address Folders you are currently viewing!

    Hi there,

    Thank you for using Outlook and taking the time to share your experience with us.

    We currently only support the latest version of the app. This means that it is not possible to go back to older versions of the app at the moment.

    If you’re having trouble with the current version, please let us know through the Help Section of the app in Settings > Help and Feedback > Contact Support

  7. Bring back the email address you are currently viewing displayed at the top of the Folder list...

    Latest version of app no longer shows the email address you are currently viewing at the top of the Folder list, just a nondescript icon with the first letter of the email address. Not helpful if you use the app to manage multiple email accounts.

  8. Fix the rubbish folder issue causing all of the trash mail from the last four years to disappear but show emails from 2015 and earlier.

    This has literally been happening for years. So frustrating! If I refresh the trash nothing happens. Eventually they come back but I'm not sure how or what provokes them to reappear.

  10. Revolutionary concept: what if the trash button actually deletes the email (in the Android app)? If you add that feature, I'd be happy.

    I don't know why you have the trash button in the app if it does nothing permanently. The same messages always pop back into the inbox the next day. My goal: to convince you that the trash button should be functional, by default, in the Android app. I've noticed many online comments from others with the same problem that I have, and they have suggested various clunky work-arounds that work for some people but not others. In brief, I'd like you to add a feature linking the button that looks like a trash can to the action of moving that…

    Hi there,

    Thank you for using Outlook Mobile and sharing your ideas with us. We really appreciate your support.

    It is currently already possible to select multiple emails at once. To do so, long press on an email until a checkmark appears at the left of it. Once you’ve selected multiple emails, you’ll then be able to perform mov actions on them, like moving, deleting, marking as read/unread, archiving… A “Select All” option will also appear in the top right corner.

    Having trouble finding the feature? Let us know through the Help section of the app. You may reach them by going to the app’s Setting > Help and Feedback > Contact Support

  16. Parity with Windows Outlook

    Is it an option to request for features that have existed on Windows for a long time but have seemingly been removed deleberately since it would remind people about the Windows?

    Following two are dear to me:
    - ability to leave emails as unread after viewing them
    - display thread with newest on top

    Thanks

  17. Bug in Outlook Email

    I installed Outlook and office in my Android phone. I realized there are synchronization issue with outlook mail. I could read the new email in notification but it doesn't appear in the inbox. I get to open it on my desktop if I waant to access it. Then I I tried Uninstalling it. Although it doesn't show up in app list in setting, but it could not get removed from Gallery app. Trying Uninstalling from Gallery, gives a message that system app can't be removed.

    Hi there,

    Thank you for using Outlook Mobile and sharing your ideas with us. We really appreciate your support.

    There are a few quick and easy way to delete emails from the Outlook app.

    1. Delete button in reading view.

    Simply tap on the “trash” icon on the upper right corner of the screen to delete the email that’s currently open.

    2. Swipe to delete.

    Swipe the email to the left. By default, this will archive the email. However, you can customize Swipe Options in the Settings and change the action to Delete.

    3. Bulk delete.

    This is very useful when you want to delete multiple emails at once. To do this, long press on an email until a checkmark appears at the left of it. Once you’ve selected multiple emails, you’ll then be able to perform the following actions: deleting, marking as read, archiving. A “Select…
