  3. 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.

  4. Ability to have all messages in threads collapse

    The newest update shows all messages in a thread as open. I would like the option to collapse all expect he most recent message so I can more easily jump back to previous messages. (The way it used to be)

  5. Remove delete permanently prompt

    This should have a toggle to remove the prompt. The prompt isn’t provided on webmail, should have the option.

  13. Auto CC / BCC

    I would like to see a setting that would allow a bcc to be sent to the sender by default (so there would be a copy of every sent email in the inbox.

    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. :-)

  15. Read Receipts

    The ability to send or not send read receipts for emails and calendar invites, just like on Outlook for desktop.

  16. Customise account icon

    The new navigation pane doesn't allow customisation of the initials in the circle. With multiple accounts in outlook it's impossible to tell them apart.
    Let users set a custom account avatar.

  18. Bring back easy flag option

    Before the recent UI update (which is awesome), the flag option was immediately visible in the top right. The new UI buries it in a menu. I used it almost constantly, and would love to see it not hidden. Just a thought :)

  19. 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.

  20. Speed Performance

    The Outlook app takes a long time to work each time when changing between apps. This is the case even when the app is already open. The screen is blank for ten seconds or maybe longer before it loads. Compared to accessing the Exchange server through the native iOS Mail app, which my company disabled in the past year, performance has been slower and sluggish.
