    • Proper search - in current folder, from sender, subject includes, key words, etc

      Search function must enable search in current folder, search from a given sender and search words in the subject of the email. Ideally the search UI will be identical to the UI of the search in Outlook for Windows

      • I would like to select individual or all emails after I perform a search to either delete, Mark as spam or move a different folder.

        I would like to know how can I select individual or all emails I searched for to either delete, Mark as spam or move a different folder? This function doesn't seem to be available in this app, I can only select emails that are on the inbox and not the ones I performed a search, Please help.

            • Search mail (not only contacts)

              can we have the search function back? Now it only searches for contacts - this app is so useless now.

                • Specific folder search

                  DO NOT MERGE THIS WITH WRONG IDEAS!!

                  Why are you dumbing down the app? Global-Search has become useless as it doesnt have specific folder search and returns a huge list to sort through what I`m searching.
                  My specifc request is as follows:
                  1. Bring back ability to search specific folder
                  2. Put Contacts short cut on home screen

                  DO NOT MERGE THIS WITH WRONG IDEAS!!

                  Do not mark this thread as completed till you have done this.

                      • Searching mail doesn't work properly. It just takes content from the mail and not subjects or senders

                        Searching mail doesn't work properly. It just takes content from the mail and not subjects or senders. Also all mails don't appear even with the search queries.

                        The speed is also frustratingly slow

                        • Filter by category

                          I categorize emails on desktop because read emails are all in the same folder if no further action is required. When away from the office I have no efficient way of retrieving emails without filter by category. filter and search takes too long as it is today.

                              • search -> multiselect -> move to folders

                                It seems reasonable to able to do the same set of actions on a search result list as on any ordinary folder... yet currently the set of actions is very limited. Most notably, I cant select items and move them to a different folder. This makes sorting out tons of emails nearly impossible. It'd be nice if this was implemented, not just a single delete action (no, I can't even archive).

                                • For the app, allow searches within all folders to search for ANY key words, not just contacts. It only bases searches on contacts

                                  The app seems to only allow searches for contacts, not key words. Example - tried searching 'recent events' for an email I was looking for. No results popped up even though it was literally the subject line of this email. I can only search for emails based off of contacts, not subject lines or key words.

                                  • Provide icon for direct link to contacts. Reduce the number of times needed to place a call.

                                    When I got the phone there was an icon similar to the email icon but went directly to contacts. Where did it go? Also to place a call you need to search for the contact in email then press at least three different screens to place the call. Seems redundant and unnecessary.
