  1. automatically discard draft messages that are empty.

    When someone mistakenly begins a new draft and they cancel the message, delete the draft if it's empty. Don't force the user to notice the little notification to delete it. This is just following the 80-20 rule here. Make the common use cases easier.

        • Google calendar sync please

          Your native calendar widget is ugly. Either provide more choices or allow us to sync with Google calendar seamlessly instead of having to export entries and manually sending it to Google calendar.

            • Remove new dividers such as "Yesterday", "Last Week" etc. Redundant and wastes space

              The dividers such as 'Yesterday', 'Last Week', 'Last Month' are unnecessary and waste valuable space on a phone-sized screen. Completely redundant; the date is right there next to the message. Please make this change optional or removable, for those of us who know how dates and times work.

              • support pinned emails in the Outlook app. I can pin emails in OWA but the app doesn't show them as pinned (making them difficult to find).

                Show pinned emails at the top, or in a special tab in the app. And let me pin or unpin emails from the app.

                  • Stop putting my important emails in the spam and my spam in the important.

                    I find my important emails go into the spam and I get phishing scams in my focused inbox. It'd be even better to get the opportunity to mark phishing scams and report them through the app rather than having to do that on my PC.

                    • Add the contacts icon on the bottom navigation bar.

                      The new version removed the contacts icon for the search icon but when I search I don't always get the contact I am looking for even if it's in my contacts. Then clicking on the contacts it sends me to the list where I can not search anymore, I have to scroll, the previous version was much more intuitive

                      • change color/image of account

                        make it possible to select an individual color for the accounts instead of automatically assigned color. and make it possible to have a picture instead of color+letter.

                        • Change spam filtering protocols so that when I move email from the spam folder into my regular inbox, you recognize the sender as not spam.

                          Spam filtering protocols should be altered to recognize future emails from senders whose email I have previously moved from the spam folder into my regular inbox, and no longer place email from that mailer into the spam folder. I currently have to check my spam folder to retrieve email from mailers who I subscribe to, although I have moved emails from the spam folder many times previously. Thank you.

                                        • provide full support for Outlook tasks

                                          I've inquired about this before, i.e. supporting full-featured Outlook Tasks in the Android version. not some dumbed down todo list, but a full fledged database, syncing categories & their colors, all the task fields synced properly. Customizable views. Pocket Informant did it back in Windows CE days, should be a lot easier today given today's phone capabilities. my task dstabase is several thousand items, so you can see why custom views matter
