  1. Have option to sync more than 1 month

    Team,

    Is it possible to have option to download / sync the inbox beyond 1 month (~6 mo or 1 yr) so I can search more quickly or go through offline emails instead of constantly pressing “load more”?

  2. Replying to Email

    Add the standard feature to email allowing for the reply text to be at the top of the email that you are drafting, so the entire email thread is in chronological order. Just like it is when normally responding to email while on a laptop or desktop.

  3. View in Light Mode

    There needs to be a per email option to view individual emails in light mode, when a user has dark mode enabled. Some emails have attachment formatting which results in black text on the black dark mode background. To view these few emails, a user needs to leave the email, go to settings, enable light mode, go back to the email, read and take care of the email, then go through all those steps again to reenable dark mode. Gmail for iOS has already implemented this feature to great success.

  4. Search, “select all”, delete

    Would love to be able to do a search for specific emails from the same source or with the same subject, “select all” within the search, and then delete everything in that search with one click.

  5. Confirm folder name when moving an email to a folder.

    To be sure that an email was moved to the correct folder it would be good if the folder name would be shown while copying the mail.
    Maybe the app could even suggest folders like the mail function of iOS does.

  6. Better Spam Block

    Currently, one can block a spam e-mail but they still come back through and in addition, so many repeated and or similar spam headers consistently find their way through.

    It is becoming somewhat relentless and am unhappy as have never contacted these companies of which us concerning in how they got hold of my e-mail. Especially, quite a few are phishing e-mails!

  9. Ability to hide message previews

    Forcing us to view message previews in a folder takes away from valuable smart phone screen real estate. Please give us the option to enable or disable message previews in all folders, especially the inbox.

  13. Outlook for iOS cannot log into Exchane 2013

    First off, please provide a bug report mechanism that does not require you to already be logged into Outlook for iOS

    Next, provider (Rackspace) upgraded server from Exchange 2010 to Exchange 2013. Outlook for iOS throws spurious authentication errors and does not allow login, though desktop app and iOS native mail app have no issues with same credentials

  14. Please eliminate the drop down for CC and BCC.

    Please eliminate the drop down for CC and BCC. At least give an option for CC to be open by default instead of having to press the drop down arrow. I do a lot of copying in emails and it’s more of a hassle now.

  16. One line view - only subject & sender

    Like on desktop, can you please give us option to have a one line view so the inbox is neat and tidy. It would be nice to have option not to see the first line of body.
    Thanks,
    Ajay

  20. Too much white space

    Use subtle separates like light gray, thin lines or shadows. Even though white space looks more modern, there can be too much of it.
