  1. A Do Not Disturb feature for "after hours"

    A Do Not Disturb feature for "after hours" would be great. if you could allow custom times, e.g. 8pm - 6am, that would be even better.

    Hey there!

    If you’re not enjoying the Focused Inbox feature, you can turn it off in your settings. By switching the option off within your settings, the toggle option on the top of your inbox will disappear and all your mails will appear chronologically across your inbox. If you have further questions, we have some talented people ready to assist at Settings > Help & Feedback > Contact Support.

    Thank you again for your support, we look forward to hearing more of your ideas very soon.

  4. synchronize calendars with exchange accounts.

    this was a previously closed request from three years ago, but is clearly not addressed yet. I have a shared calendar that will not synchronize with the mobile app.

  5. Need a specific option to swipe email to spam/junk folder.

    At present there is a swipe option to move to a folder choice. It would be improved by allowing an additional choice to move the email to a specific folder such as spam/junk. It is a 2 step process now. It would be more convenient as a 1 swipe process.

  6. Addressing email using contacts -- outlook for android

    FIX the APP please!
    It seems that outlook is not accessing all of my contacts when I am addressing an email. The outlook version is 4.1.71 on a Samsung S3 tablet and my Samsung S9+ phone. When I am addressing an email (new, reply, or forwarded), some of the addresses in my contacts do not come up. I have confirmed in outlook (people) that all of the addresses are there.
