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.

Please add a 'vacation mode' that stops syncing selected accounts, and suspends any notification for these accounts (such as calendar reminders etc.).
Mickaël Rémond commented
This would make it possible to suspend receiving and seeing message from work account when in vacation for example.

Please stop showing the blue dot on the setup icon to suggest adding email accounts. Once you have shown me this once and I don't choose to add the account, please stop suggesting it.

I have a persistent notification on the “hamburger” to add a new account. I’ve clicked through to decline, but the notification keeps coming up no matter what. It’s distracting and may lead me to switch to a different email app.

I use Outlook for my private emails and also for my business emails. So I have two email accounts active. When I'm on vacation e.g., I do not want to receive business emails and even I do not want to receive any notifiers of my business account. At it is the same at weekend (when some colleagues are sending emails). For that I remove the account and after vacation or weekend I have to add it again. That is very complicated. Why it is not possible to disable the business account for a while or to configure an active/not active plan?

Outlook for iOS keeps showing a notification badge on the in-app sidebar button (3 stripes button) to inform me about a new onmicrosoft.com account that has been detected on my device. This is my Office 365 Business account/username. This account cannot be added to Outlook for iOS because of an error “this is not a Microsoft account”.
Please add an option to toggle enable/disable detection of new accounts on an iOS device.
Alternatively, add support for onmicrosoft.com Office 365 Business accounts to Outlook for iOS.
Thank you :-)

I have a mailbox that I have linked, but don’t actively monitor because someone else is in charge of it. To keep my sanity it would be nice to hide it from the inbox view so that my view all inboxes is less cluttered looking.

Same as you can do for calendars, but for the inboxes.

A turn on/off button for mails and calendar when for example on holiday or traveling and you don’t want to be constantly disturbed by your work mail.
Can you please add the option that allows to disable an email account instead of deleting it?
Currently the iphone mail app has this option where you can disable different things on an specific mail.
Ted Thrash commented
It would be helpful if you offered an on/off tab for an email address, allowing you to turn it off in order to stop getting mail on your device for a period of time.

Use my phone for work and personal and would like to have ability to stop syncing work email when on leave.
Mr Gene commented
Just like in native iOS mail app, so that email can be stopped while on vacation, for example.

I’d love to see a feature where I can add a mailbox, such as for my job, but be able to mute it so that I can review it when I WANT to.
That is, I like having notifications from the two mailboxes that I use (Outlook & Gmail), but I like checking my work email without it being INCLUDED in all of my notifications and overall email - separation, or options on which mailboxes to receive notifications for and/or mute, would be stellar.
Please & thank you!

Would be nice to be able to turn certain accounts on and off. IE Turn off my work account when I’m at the office

Hey there. I have. My work and my personal account in my phone. I'd like to check my mail when I'm off work but disable it when I'm on site. I'd like to have a way to disable an account without having to remove it from Outlook.

The ability to “mute” select accounts.
For example: I have an Exchange email account and an Office 365 account. I want to be able to mute my notifications for my Office 365 account and not my Exchange account. I would like to do this for work purposes. I only want to receive email notifications from my Office 365 account during the regular 9:00am - 5:00pm work day. But, I would like to receive notifications from my Exchange account at all times.
I believe this would be very helpful to a lot of users.
If this is already a feature, and I don’t know about it, great! Let me know if it is though. Thanks!

If there are more mail accounts make it possible to disable synchronisation of mail. Ie disable your Business mail but not your private mail
I use Outlook as the email client for a collection of email accounts, from personal to work. I'd like to be able to easily switch off (or take offline) an email account without deleting the account details. For example, I go on holiday and don’t want to see Work email, I “switch off”my work email until I am finished with my holiday. That would suit manually switching it off. I’d also like to be able to set a timer to take an account offline and bring it back online according to my own preferences - for example, during work hours I don’t want the distraction of non-work related email, so I set a timer that takes my personal email account(s) offline daily from 9am until 5pm.
Ability to turn internal or external away message on/off.
