  1. Calendar invites

    It would be very helpful to see all your calendar invitations separate from email similar to the iOS calendar

  2. 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!

  3. 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

  5. Option to not automatically mark item read

    If I am on an email and perform some action on it (move, delete, etc) and the pointer moves to the next email which happens to be unread, that new selected email is marked as read. For now I have to swipe to mark as Unread because I don’t want to process/read it yet.

  7. Add Splash Screen

    Although the app itself is good. But it takes a while when loading for the first time and shows the blank interface. So it would be good to add a splash screen like the other Microsoft office apps, while the content keeps loading the background. It will please the users.

  9. Email signature from PC app to be exact or synced with that of the outlook app for mobile

    Please allow the syncing of the signature settings and style to match how the PC user arranged sig to be on the Outlook app.

    The Outlook app has a plain way of displaying the sig. No fonts, colors or company image. Please do that for us. Other providers sync the sigs.

  12. Threading

    I like the way Apple has the threading feature. The threading feature in outlook is not very good.

  15. Notifications during “Work Hours”

    Allow users to set “work hours” or “work days” during which to receive notifications of new mail or events.

    For example, a user could set “work hours” of 7-5pm M-F and would only receive notifications during those times. All mail or events received outside of those hours would result in a notification only when “work hours” resumed.

  17. Do not disturb

    Be able to set times to not receive email notifications. I have a boss who works in the middle of the night and sends emails. My phone is set to do not disturb so I do not hear alerts but I see the banner preview of the message and it makes me look at them and then I cannot sleep.

  18. Font Choice

    Fonts appear normal on iOS but when read on PC are bold and giant... it looks miserable. Please allow me to choose a font that will be consistent across operating systems.

  19. Moving email between accounts

    Dear development team,
    It will be very convenient if the next version of the app would allow for moving emails from one account to another instead of only to folders within the same account...
    Thanks a lot!

  20. Classic look

    Please bring back the old look of Outlook! The Inbox bar is way too thick and blue. The slider button for focused and other is too round and puffy.

    I like the simple, clean and professional look of the previous look.
