  1. Bring back one inbox

    It’s annoying having to check 2 inboxes every day, it’s far more convenient to just have the one.

      Hi there,

      Thank you for using Outlook Mobile and sharing your ideas with us. We really appreciate your support.

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

      All the best,

      The Outlook Mobile Team

      • A little more rich text formatting, please

        The product is progressing well, but it’s remarkable to me that there isn’t a little more rich text formatting capability like simple bulleted or numbered lists. That would give email composition some of the features of typical desktop applications, which would be helpful for those of us trying to use the iPad as a computer.

        • Optimize for iPhone XS Max

          Hello. Please optimize the app for iPhone XS Max. All of the fonts are just blown up and don’t take any extra advantage of the screen. Thank you.

              • REMOVE THE "ADD A MESSAGE" Put the Reply, Reply All, Forward buttons back

                Get rid of this and replace with reply forward buttons.
                With the latest update the forward and reply and flag buttons are now hidden underneath a separate button. Before there were those buttons either at the beginning of the email or at the bottom. Could you please add that back
                Please remember this is for email and not Facebook.

                • Add the time an email was received.

                  Telling me an email was received "yesterday" is only mildly helpful. I'd like to know the time an email was received

                  • Categories

                    I don’t use folders, only Categories. It would be useful to see my emails that I have categorized and be able to categorize in the Outlook iOS app.

                    • Sync all folders.

                      In order to be an enterprise solution it needs to sync all folders.

                      • Allow images in signature (Outlook for iOS)

                        I love outlook for iOS.

                        One of the features I would like to see implemented is the ability for images to be used in our signature / sign-off at the bottom of every email we send.

                        • Show the date when scrolling down emails

                          When scrolling back/down through emails in side panel it is unclear what the date is. Just showing the day of a the week is not helpful.

                            The newest update shows all messages in a thread as open. I would like the option to collapse all expect he most recent message so I can more easily jump back to previous messages. (The way it used to be)

                            • Reply All is default in new version. Default to reply, not reply all in add message

                              The default in the replying to a message is Reply All. This default should be able to be changed, otherwise we are going to have a lot of people accidentally replying all to mass emails / the entire org when they only meant to respond to the original sender.

                                      • Warning when message does not send

                                        When messages are held in the Outbox and do not send there should be a warning.

                                        • Bring back easy flag option

                                          Before the recent UI update (which is awesome), the flag option was immediately visible in the top right. The new UI buries it in a menu. I used it almost constantly, and would love to see it not hidden. Just a thought :)
