Click and hold hyperlink to reveal url
This may not get a lot of popular support but from a security standpoint it is important that when people click and hold on a link in an email that the irk is displayed. We run an automated phishing test monthly for our staff and had several people click what could have been a malicious link in the test email from their phone. In the built-in Mail app in iOS you can confirm the link url by clicking and holding (which is what we train our staff to do). However this doesn't work in the Outlook app! Currently clicking these licks on a phone is safer since the att jets are usually sending attacks targeted to PC's but it would not be difficult to tailor the link to deliver a payload based on the device accessing the link.
On the outlook app for iOS within the options should be an option to convert hyperlinks in the email view to show the full URL or press and hold the hyperlink to view the URL. Many users are trained to look at the URL in hyperlinks to help asses potential phishing.
When looking at emails in Outlook on my iPhone if accidentally touch a graphic with hyperlink, it automatically and immediately opens that web page in Safari. If it was a malware email and web site then I’m automatically infected. Very frustrating and worrisome. It happens often on iPhone when panning or zooming. Need a setting in Outlook on iPhone to block this from occurring or at least require my giving the go ahead?

I subscribe to a few blogs with lists at the top that are hyperlinked bookmarks to content below. These don’t work in the app, so I have to scroll for miles and miles (it seems) to get to the bit of content I want. Could you enable that feature?
Thanks in advance!
It would be great if we could get hyperlinks in our mobile email signature or at least be able to link our computer signature to be used on our mobile as well. I am a realtor and we have forms that need to be linked to our signatures to be in compliance. As a realtor, we have to use our mobiles a lot for business and this lack of feature poses a problem. Thanks!

Phone numbers should be hyperlinks so when we click on it it calls directly and if a passcode that is copies it and enters is automatically when prompted
It’s 2018 and one of the largest companies in the world does not yet provide a way to include a hyperlink in an iOS Outlook mail signature. Hyperlinks are the front lines of marketing and mobile is where we live. This has to change. Please add signature hyperlinks to websites etc in email signatures for iOS.
Please disable automatic link insertion in emails. It's really annoying and most of the times it garbles up either the text or the hyperlink. This may not be an issue for Bob sending emails to grandma on Sundays, but for professional users like me that need to constantly send links in emails to clients, it's very frustrating and annoying. If you believe this is a value add feature, then at least let some of us opt out of it by giving us an option to turn it off.
It also seems to be much worse when you're using a custom keyboard (like SwiftKey, for example).
Thanks for a great email client. Let's keep it awesome, please!
