  5. 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)

  8. 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.

  12. 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.

    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. :-)

  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. 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 :)
