  1. Allow actions on searched items

    If you do a search you have very limited group actions on the results unlike u searched items. There is no press and hold for multi select, no swipe actions either. I would like to search by say sender and then action, move folder delete etc.
    Swiping left/right through the emails as well would be helpful.

  4. Font Size - Reader View

    I've been looking at all the various requests for font changes and they're all marked as complete. But the problem still persists. Often mails are far too small to read, prohibitively wide or both. Even more frustrating is when you rotate to landscape it doesn't make anything bigger, it just gets wider.

    It's quit likely the font sizing HAS been fix for some amount of formats. But for html mails, it can still be crazy small. How about:

    1. An optional Safari style Reader View for all messages that strips all formatting and renders system font/size with inline images. Make…

    Hey everyone! Thank you for your patience and apologize for any frustrations. While All bugs have been resolved on Apple’s end, the spell checker inside the app is linked to your device and keyboard settings. However, due to limitations in the Outlook mobile app, this feature is currently only available when using the quick reply option. To vote / comment on the spellcheck feature in the compose screen please go to the following link: https://outlook.uservoice.com/forums/293349-outlook-for-ios/suggestions/34198510-spell-check-in-the-compose-screen-view

    If you have any questions, please contact us inside the app at Settings>Help & Feedback> Contact support we look forward to assisting you. :-)

  9. Ability to change email Sort Order Within Threads

    It would sure be nice to have the option to change the sort order in which the emails appear within the threads. I, for example, would like the most recent email to show up at the top of the list. Currently the most recent email is showing at the bottom.

  15. Jump to next mail by deleting/archiving a mail

    It would be much more comfortable when the App would jump directly to the content of the next mail after deleting a mail. So it works in Windows ob a pc or in Apple Mail. When you delete a Mail you see the next mails text.

  19. VIP Alerts

    The ability to set specific alert sounds or alert sounds ONLY for select emails - iOS Mail app has this function. Providing a "VIP Inbox" that i can identify contacts for, and therefore only provide notifications from those specific contacts. Since I use this for work, it would be good if I can set an alert for my VP, but ignore all other emails as normal.
