    Hey folks! We have had to make the decision that this isn’t something that we’re going to have on mobile. We have a team spending their time on making sure our HTML rendering and message composition experiences are rich (formatting support is coming in the future). We are still taking your votes and notes into consideration and we highly appreciate them: Sometimes we have to make decisions to improve the overall experience for the widest amount of people. Thanks for your understanding and keep letting us know your thoughts.

  2. Empty trash

    While it is possible to select all and delete in a folder, it would be great to have an empty trash button or option right on the folder list.

    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!

  5. Email Translation capability

    Have the ability to automatically translate an email using a default service (when online). Great feature that the native app doesn't have.

  6. Date Badge

    I love being able to look quickly at the Apple iOS default calendar icon to tell what date it is. It would be great if there was an option to show the current date on the Outlook icon.

  12. Credential Crisis?

    I love the app, but there was alot of with regards to Cached Credentials in AWS?
    This goes against corporate security policies, even if you move it to Azure.
    Is there a way you can allow end users to turn it off and let us deal with it.

    And as a personal daily driver, I wouldn't want my creds stored in the cloud, especially as MS have not come out and said anything.

    If this is all untrue please do come out and say..

    If you can brush up on this, this will easily be the main driver for every…
