Ability to enable or disable accounts
I have few exchange server accounts that are sometimes unreachable (probably during maintenance) and during this time I keep getting popup request to set the password. What I would really like is to disable this account until the servers are reachable so that i can at least continue working with other email accounts. Because of this popup i cannot work with other accounts until the connectivity is fixed. This feature is also useful when i am outside the country and when data is expensive. I could disable the accounts that are not important and only download emails for accounts that I really care about.

I'd LOVE to temporarily "mute" an email account in the app-- specifically I want to be able to check my personal accounts in the app while not seeing my work account (or at least not seeing new messages in my work account) without deleting my work account.
I have multiple accounts in my app. When I am on vacation I would like to pause or mute my work account while still retrieving mail from others

When on vacation, I don’t want to receive work email. I want to be able to turn it off for a period of time, without deleting the account. When I come back from vacation, I want to turn the work email back on with a push of a button.

I have several email accounts and when I go on vacation I want to disable syncing for my work account. Currently I have to remove the account completely to avoid getting work emails during this time.
We should be able to disable accounts on demand and enable them when desired later.
This should not only disable the auto syncing of emails but also should remove the account from the Active list while keeping it in the Account Settings section just one setting away from being activated again.
If possible, syncing of the Contacts should not be affected or otherwise you could give us the options to disable the syncing we want whether it is email and contacts or just one of them.
Apple Mail app has had this functionality all along, not sure why it has not been implemented on the Outlook app.

I want to turn my work email off after house so I want my email not to notify me of emails in that inbox unless I refresh manually
This is a must have feature - the only reason I still have gmail app as that does allow easy toggle on/off of an account.

I need to be able to turn off work email when I’m on vacation.
Bart Kamminga commented
During holidays or other periods it should be nice if accounts can be tempory disabled without the need to remove them.

Currently you can’t turn off one email account, you need to delete.

I have multiple email accounts on my iPhone but only want the badge to display a count of unread messages for some of those accounts.
The other accounts are shared mailboxes I rarely check and only on demand so don't want to have their unread messages alerting me.
Help me to delete the email address.

Please add this. I’d like to start using this app over the native iOS app, but I want the ability to have my work email linked but not always active. I don’t want work emails on my phone 24/7, only when I need to access something or want to turn it on.

I have multiple accounts but I don’t want app to bother about other accounts to fetch any mails. I should be able to enable those accounts when I want to fetch those emails.

It is important to have a feature to take an account online/offline. In the offline mode no new mail will be checked for and only the existing mail would be accessible.

I don't use the all accounts view and it is really annoying when you end up in all accounts view. Add an option to disable it, like Focused Inbox.

Would be great to deactivate job emails, so i don’t receive them on vacations. I saw this feature on other iOS app.

Hello, a suggestion to change the colour of some of the text in some windows. For example currently typing this in the suggest a feature area. The text buttons at the top of the screen called ‘cancel’ and ‘next’ are a shade of grey that gives the impression that these options are not available.
Another example is the window that pops up when tapping the question mark next to a setting, some text fields at the top give the impression they are ‘greyed out’
Should be notification mails when the app is close, because I forgot sign in and open de mail, and when I open the mail I had a lot the mail unread.

I have several email accounts. How do I disable contacts and calendars on certain accounts and just leave email?
I have a corporate account which I want to have email, contacts and calendar.
I have a personal email which I would like the same settings as the corporate account.
I have added a family email account which I only want emails to come but do now want contacts and calendar to sync.

Currently if your are a GCC Customer your Outlook Mobile App is restricted to one mailbox account per device. Once you add your GCC Enabled account to Outlook App you cannot add any additional email accounts. There currently is no documentation on how to disable or make an exception for a Global Administrator to opt out of these GCC restrictions limiting 1 account to Mobile devices using the Outlook Android/iOS app.
The Outlook for iOS and Android architecture is FedRAMP compliant for US Office 365 GCC customers
Q: Will Office 365 GCC customers be able to add an account to Outlook for iOS and Android in non-GCC mode?
A: No. GCC users will continue to be blocked from adding accounts with Outlook for iOS and Android as that process routes data via the public Azure cloud instance. Controls are in place to ensure all GCC mobile users use the “GCC Mode” to connect Outlook with their Office 365 account.
Q: Once a user enables “GCC Mode” can they add an additional Office 365 account?
A: No, Office 365 Government Community Cloud customers may only have one account connected to Outlook for iOS and Android from a single Office 365 instance. This means that these customers cannot have a mailbox that is located on a different Office 365 tenant, from either the public Office 365 instance or the Office 365 Government Community Cloud tenant within the same Outlook for iOS and Android app on the same device.
