    Hi there,

    There are a few quick and easy way to delete emails from the Outlook app.

    Simply tap on the “trash” icon on the upper right corner of the screen to delete the email that’s currently open.

    2. Swipe to delete.

    Swipe the email to the left. By default, this will archive the email. However, you can customize Swipe Options in the Settings and change the action to Delete.

  3. IPhone X support

    Please update so it can support iPhone X!
    The default app is horrible compared to outlook and I can’t live without it!

    Thank you for the incredible job on this app by the way!

    Cheers,

    Hey Everyone!

    Great news! You now have the ability to add, edit and delete contacts right from Outlook on iOS.

    If you want to delete a previously added contact, navigate to the contact section of the app> select a contact> scroll to the bottom of that contact’s card and select “Delete Contact”

    By booting the app, it waits 5-6 seconds in the white blank page. It is quite weird to me while other email apps open instantly.

  16. Folders

    I would like a folder system like google where I can have folders within folders. So for instance, as a student I like to have my folders by semesters then within that folder I have my class folders so I can separate all the emails I get from teachers and find things more easily.
