                  Hi Outlook users,

                  We’re excited to announce that the Outlook on iOS application now supports shared calendars for Office365 and Outlook.com users!

                  If you already have a shared calendar, you’ll need to upgrade it so that it syncs to your mobile phone. It’s simple to do though: just ask the calendar owner to re-share the calendar to you, and then click the Accept button in the Outlook app. After accepting, you’ll be able to see the shared calendar on your mobile phone!

                  This feature is only available if both the calendar owner & the sharing recipient are hosted in Office365 or Outlook.com. And if you have any questions, don’t hesitate to reach out to the in-app support team by going to Settings > Help & Feedback> Contact Support and we’d be happy to help!

                • Sound to Confirm Outgoing Mail.

                  Add a "woosh" or sound to confirm outgoing mail.

                    Well hello!

                    Awesome news! We have now added the ability to have the Outlook mobile app play a notification as soon as your email has been sent out. :-)

                    I wanted to add a side note as I see many of you wish to change the outgoing mail tone or turn it off completely. This is possible by going to settings> scroll down to “Notifications” (Under mail option) > then at the top of the next screen you will see the option for “Sound for Sent Mail” tapping here will let you turn this notice off or choose from a few pre-loaded tones. Hope this helps!

                    Having trouble finding the feature? Let us know through the Help section of the app in the Settings. We’re here to help.

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

                    All the best

                                • Mark Email as Spam

                                  I use services such as gmail and outlook. But i cannot mark any emails as spam from Outlook which maps to the spam for gmail our outlook.com.

                                  This is a must have feature which will make outlook complete.

                                    You can now move specific emails to any folder including the Spam folder. You can do this by selecting the “more options” icon within the message (3 dots). From here you can either choose to move the item to spam or direct it to any other folder associated with your mail account. You can also move multiple emails by selecting them from the inbox view, tap the 3 dot icon, and choose which folder to move to. For outlook.com accounts only, moving items to spam will be picked up as a signal by our reporting team and will lead to the sender being blocked. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to reach out at Settings > Help & Feedback > Contact Support.

                                  • 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.

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