  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.

      It is currently already possible to turn on/off the Focused Inbox, to do so go to settings then tap the toggle switch to turn on/off the Focused Inbox option.

      Having trouble finding the feature? Let us know through the Help section of the app. You may reach them by going to the app’s Setting > Help and Feedback > Contact 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

      PS: Please use the Help Section of the app for any questions, we are not able to see replies to this address.

    • Spam Filter

      PLEASE add a better spam filter so we no longer have to deal with hundreds of spam e-mails every day. At least remove senders which have been flagged or previously sent to spam folder. Why have the option to flag if we continue to get the same e-mails?

      • Search within specific folders

        I want the ability to search keywords within a specific folder, not all folders and all items. I use four email accounts and thousands of work emails and need to find things quicker. Apple email has had that function for years.

        • To Do List

          I really need the ability to add emails to a to do list. That would be life changing for me and likely others.

          • 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.

              • 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

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

                  • 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.

                    • 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.

                          • Email Formatting with Font

                            Allow us to change the Font when formatting an email. The standard font is terrible and very difficult to read.

                            Also, allow for us to pick a default font.

                                  • Default Reply setting

                                    The current default to Reply All emails is counterintuitive and time consuming to work around. Please add a mail setting to make the default reply behavior only Reply and not Reply All. If you have any concept of decency, you’ll also default the setting to Reply, but that doesn’t really matter to me.

                                      Would be nice to be able to create a folder inside a folder (Sub)
                                      At the moment we can only create a folder when saving a new email but we can’t choose where to create it.

                                        Ability to exband the email conversations from the inbox view and/or sort the emails by date and disregard merging the conversations emails into one email. Same as the desktop software
