      Hi there,
       
      Thank you for using Outlook Mobile and sharing your ideas with us. We really appreciate your support.
       
      It is currently already possible to set an out of office message in the app for Exchange and Office 365 account.
       
      To setup out of the office replies, tap settings > tap your Office365 or Exchange account > tap Automatic Replies > toggle the switch on. 
       
      You may choose:
      1.) Reply to everyone
      2.) Reply only to my organization
       
      You can also set up a different messages for your organization and external senders.
       
      Tap done once you have set up your automatic reply.
       
      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.

        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!

        All the best
        The Outlook Mobile Team

          Hi there,
           
          Thank you for using Outlook Mobile and sharing your ideas with us. We really appreciate your support.
           
          There are a few quick and easy way to mark email as unread from the Outlook app.
           
          1. Mark unread button in reading view.
          Just tap on 3 dots beside the delete/trash icon on the upper right of the screen to show the other options, there you will find a mark as unread.
          2. Swipe to mark as unread.
          Swipe the email to the left or right. By default, this will archive the email. However, you can customize Swipe Options in the Settings and change the action to Mark as read/unread.
          3. Bulk action.
          This is very useful if you want to make changes on multiple emails at once. To do this, long press on an email until a checkmark appears at the left of it. Once you’ve…

                              Hello there!

                              As much as we’d like to provide customizable options for everyone to choose from, this one is a technical impossibility with the way Outlook has been set up. POP3 downloads email from a server to a single computer, then deletes it from the server. Because of this, it can appear that mail is missing or disappearing from your Inbox if you try to check your mail from a different computer. One of the benefits of Outlook on iOS (and Android) is the ability to manage your important messages from multiple devices you use throughout the day.

                              Thank you for your understanding, and we are working hard to bring more improvements to you as fast as we can!

                              All the best
                              The Outlook Mobile Team

                            • Hate the focused & other mailboxes.

                              Annoying to have to check both & why do you get to decide what should be more important to me.

                              • Stop separating focus and other

                                It’s not necessary and very inconvenient

                                  Similar to swipe to ‘Read & Archive’ but for deleting.

                                    Stop deciding what emails are important and what should be put in other.

                                    I hate this feature and cannot seem to turn it off.

                                      • No split between Focused and Other emails.

                                        Just have one feed where all emails appear.
