  1. Please add an option to remove the Preview

    As others have requested please add an option to set the size of the preview eg from 0 lines (ie hidden) up to 6+ lines etc. it's the only thing stopping me moving over permanently from the built iOS mail app.

        • Folders

          I have several folders under my inbox that I cannot see with this app. Until that is added/fixed, this app won't work for me and I'll have to access my email from a browser ☹️

          • Message flags

            Good day. Love the app thanx for the work u do
            Pls consider to allow for message flagging from the list without requiring swipe movement. A simple touch on the flag would it be visible could allow for this.

            It is unproductive to enter each message to flag it or not.

            Thanx

              It is currently already possible to perform an action without opening the email. To do so, long press on an email until a checkmark appears at the left of it. You’ll then be able to select and flag the email. This is very useful if you want to perform bulk actions like moving, deleting, flagging, marking as read/unread, archiving… A “Select All” option will also appear in the top right corner.

            • IMAP Contact Sync/iPhone

              Not every email is Gmail account. A lot of home network email providers are IMAP. It's really unfortunate that iPhone contacts or IMAP contacts can not be used in (what seems to be) an outstanding mail app. If that's the case it would be nice if the badge (count of incoming mail) could have a different icon for separate mail accounts.

                I’m afraid to inform you that this is not possible due to IMAP limitation. This is a limitation of the protocol and not of the app. IMAP is designed to sync emails only, it won’t sync with contacts nor calendars. And it works this way in any other app. Hope this helps.

                      You can currently customize the Swipe feature so that it matches your needs. Head to the Settings > Swipe Options to do so. There, you’ll be able to choose which actions you want the Swipe feature to perform.

                      I'd like to be able to turn off the feature where the calendar view moves according to what day in the week it is. I'd rather keep the Monday to Sunday view, regardless of what day it is.

                            Thank you for using Outlook Mobile and sharing your ideas with us. We really appreciate your support.
                             
                            Filter is a feature that is already present on the Outlook app. It allows you to sort your inbox by Unread emails,  Flagged/Starred  emails, and emails with Attachments. To use them, simply tap the  "Filters" icon in the top right of the app to reveal a small menu with three sorting options: Unread, Flagged, and Attachments. To remove the filter, tap the X icon to the right of the filter.

                            Having trouble finding the feature? Let us know through the Help section of the app in the Settings. We’re here to help.

                              Hi there,

                              Thank you for using Outlook and giving us feedback on features we should add. We really appreciate your support.

                              It is currently already possible to select multiple emails at once. To do so, long press on an email until a checkmark appears at the left of it. Once you’ve selected multiple emails, you’ll then be able to perform bulk actions on them, like deleting, marking as read, archiving… A “Select All” option will also appear in the top right corner.

                              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.

                              All the best
                              The Outlook Mobile Team

                              I'd would be nice if I could set an auto reply with the app.

                                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.

                                I like OS X Mail feature where you can add Smart Mailboxes for: Today, Yesterday, This Week, Last Week to manage and keep on top of incoming mail from multiple accounts.

                                    Hey, There!

                                    Great news! We have been busy working on this new feature and are happy to update you all!

                                    With the latest update, our Office365 users and a portion of our Gmail users can now set calendar events as busy, free, tentative or out of office. (Don’t worry we are working to expand this awesome feature to more of our users so make sure to keep your app up to date so you don’t miss out.)

                                    Currently, you may not see a visual distinction on your calendars for free/ busy times this is a temporary design and will be changing soon.

                                    If you have any questions or trouble regarding this feature please let us know by contacting our in-app support team. They can be reached by opening the app and going to Settings>Help & Feedback> Contact support.

                                    We look forward to hearing your thoughts on this feature and any…

                                      Hi David!

                                      Thank you for using Outlook Mobile and we are so glad you have contacted us!

                                      There currently is a way to show a month view. To do this, from the weekly view, please tap on any date, and swipe down. This should open the monthly view.

                                      If you are not seeing this feature please contact us through the help section of the app. (In settings). We would be more than happy to assist you. :-)

                                      Thank you again for your support, we look forward to hearing more of your ideas very soon.

                                      All the best

                                    • Month view

                                      Is now limited to day or 3-day view or task view. I need monthly view for some calendars to see big picture of when we have say, events. So for that calendar I don't need details on my iPhone (although clearly should have feature to go into detail if I want).

                                        If you got multiple email accounts linked in the app. Giving them nicknames or the option to label the account will make it easier to identify the email when you choose between accounts. For example "work" or "personal".

                                            Hi there,

                                            Thank you for using Outlook Mobile and sharing your ideas with us. We really appreciate your support.

                                            There are currently two options to delete emails without opening them.

                                            - 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.

                                            - Long press on the round icon at the left of the email until it becomes a checkbox. You’ll then be able to select it and delete it. This is very useful when you want to delete multiple emails at once.

                                            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.

                                            All the best
                                            The Outlook Mobile Team
