  2. Install Outlook, get Bing too. If only I didn't need this app for work, I'd never install it again for dastardly things like this

    Please stop taking advantage of features that you know should never be used in this way in an attempt to trick people to use your worthless search engine

  3. please add the ability to view / tag mails based on different flags / categories (feature available in desktop & web version)

    in web & desktop version of outlook, we can tag the mails based on various custom categories and colored flags of our own. it usually helps in searching / identifying the mails easily. it would be nice to have that feature extended to outlook mobile as well.

  4. 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

  5. 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.

  6. make it possible to search the junk folder.

    Lots of emails go to the junk folder and it would be helpful to be able to check if something has gone there that shouldn't have by searching by keyword/email address. The iPhone mail app supports this but the Android outlook app does not.

  7. impove visual sorting interface (colored tabs or bins for categories)

    improve visual sorting (using categories) or provide alternative to hierarchical folder list...a more intuitive graphical series of categories or actual folders would be great. This could incorporate flag/action status as well. Instead of making custom actions and/or sorting by color categories, categories would appear as either tabs in mail view window or visual "piles" of mail large enough on screen to physically drag and drop things quickly instead of using the category button in ribbon or the tiny custom action toolbar. make it feel more kanban!

  8. Enable Exchange contacts search from the native Android Contacts app

    It is currently not possible to search for Microsoft AD or Exchange contacts from the native Android Contacts app. You can currently only search from within the Outlook app.

  10. Allow multiple select of messages after a search filter is applied.

    This is marked as completed in another thread but it is not. Multi select does not work from search results screen.

  12. Retrieve WeTransfer, OneDrive and other file sharing emails when searching for with:attachment

    Sometimes you don't remember the way some files were shared with you, so it's useful that OneDrive, SharePoint, GDdrive, WeTransfer and others are shown in the results. At the end one looks for files, regardless the way they were received

  15. Cache emails locally

    Enable the storing of emails locally. Search is very slow. Infrequent used folders take ages to download messages. My phone has enough storage to cope with millions of emails. Please give us the option and flexibility. It feels like twenty years ago having to wait for refrech from the server before I can search for something. Oh, and indexing please...thank you 🙏

  16. when searching a select feature should be available!

    once you search w a term, there should be a possibility to select several emails under that search, so many elects can be moved/deleted in one go

  18. Provide a 'By month' or 'Date Range' search to avoid hundreds of 'Load more' presses which takes forever to go back months.

    Desktop Outlook let you effectively sort thousands of emails by either of name/date/Subject etc. 365 does not and my business has important emails that may go back a month, year or eighteen months plus!
    With 365 you have to repeatedly hit 'Load More' to go back mere days, let alone months and a years worth of 'Load more' would take forever!
    Provide a date range search that has no historic date limit or span and then a 'Sort By' option within that range once its loaded.
