      • 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.

        • 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.

              • fix synchronisation & indexing - when I open an unread email on the android app it is not indexed on Outlook for Mac and not searchable

                new emails that are first opened on the android app aren't indexed in the outlook for Mac desktop client and, therefore, outlook for Mac search doesn't find them. This is highly frustrating as I then have to manually scroll to find emails in my inbox or fingers folders.

                    • BUG / ISSUE: When I return to search results, emails no longer open

                      When I perform a search, I am successfully able to open an email item in those search results as expected. however, when I go back to the same search results and try to open another email item, the item fails to open. I can reproduce this every time. If I perform a new search, and try to open the item that previously would not open, it opens just fine.

                              • Filters should work in all folders, not just Inbox…

                                This literally was a feature in the Android app until recently, week or two ago maybe. Don't know why devs cut choosing Filters (i.e. Unread, Flagged, Attachments) to only possible in the main Inbox. Most mail gets moved to other folders. Would be great to be able to see only Unread or only Flagged in the other folders too again… Sad we have to suggest things that the Outlook team randomly removes

                                    • Allow search and multiple move/delete.

                                      When I search for a sender for example, I cannot select multiple and delete or move or as anything else.

                                      • 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
