  1. Search Deleted emails

    MUST be able to search deleted emails. All other folders show up in “search”....don’t leave the deleted folder out...

  2. Junk mail filter

    Since having the new Outlook app forced upon me, I am receiving 20-40 junk and spam emails on my Inbox. This never happened before with the previous online version of Outlook / Hotmail. Please dramatically improve junk mail and spam filtering. This Online Outlook upgrade is currently rated zero of 5 stars as a result of all this junk mail and spam no longer being filtered out. Zero being the worst of the worst. The lowest of the lows.

    Thank you for considering

  3. Show the date when scrolling down emails

    When scrolling back/down through emails in side panel it is unclear what the date is. Just showing the day of a the week is not helpful.

  5. iOS 14 widget

    Apple already have the jump on outlook by releasing their widget in the beta of iOS14 (which is basically live tiles, wonder who thought of that?!). Yes I know Android have had it forever, well done Apple.
    BUT - let’s make sure Outlook has a mail and calendar widget to match (one you can swipe between the two, and options to add them individually)

  7. See proposed meeting reschedule times

    When somebody has proposed a different time for a meeting you should be able to see what time they've proposed.

  8. Move to spam button

    The move to spam button has arrived in exactly the same spot the move button used to be. I’ve hit it a half dozen times by accident. I almost never want to move to spam, but I do want to move to a folder. Ideally the move option could be even more prominent, but at a minimum I’d prefer to remove “move to spam” and just have the move button back where it was.

    Thanks for listening!

  9. Changing colors

    When i press edit to access the delete feature, at the top right corner of the page the “Cancel” button resides. I suggest you change the color of the cancel button from blue to any other color as it is blended so much with the color of the outlook blue theme color.

  11. Work hours feature

    I would like to have my work emails only displayed during my set work hours.

    I.e. if I work Monday - Friday 9-5 I would like any time exclusive of those days/times for the work emails not to be visible. unless I open the work mailbox and refresh it manually.

    Thus avoiding clutter in my inbox and helping me not to over work outside of work hours.

  12. Approve messages

    If you have a security policy for a group that requires any messages to be approved, currently only OWA allows approval. The ability to approve these messages using the iOS App would be great! :)

  13. Mark as Not Spam

    Some spam filters create false positives. Create a feature to mark email from a sender or the sender's domain as Not Spam so thereafter it lands in the Inbox instead of Bulk Mail.

  14. Support Gmail Labels

    As a heavy user of Gmail labels, is this the most important feature that I want, to make Outlook for iOS my default mail app.
    Now you can only move a message to a folder.

  15. Offline support

    Emails are not cached, when responding to an email, attempting to load the original message requires an Internet connection.

    Recent files should be cached, as well as attachments opened.

  18. 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.

    It would be immensely useful to be able to access Office 365 SharePoint files in the attachments section.
