I would like to request a feature where we can create smart folders like in other apps like spark and airmail in the sidebar. Basically saved searches that can be accessed immediately via the sidebar.

Smart sort emails when moving to a folder like to iOS app - when I get emails from “‘example ” the first option when I move the email is it flags up the “example “ folder first as it knows that emails from “example “‘usually go to that folder - save time in manually selecting a folder especially if you have lots of folders
I’d like smartfolders to be synced across all platforms using the same account (workstation, phone, tablet, etc).

I would love the ability to add Smart Folders to the iOS app. There is a time savings being able to go straight to a saved smart folder rather than trying to search for a saved email or type of email.
Example: Unread, Attachments, From a Specified Email Address/Sender
It would be nice to be able to add Quicktasks which like in the desktop version let you do certain thinks like move to specific folder with just one click.
At least it would be nice if the app was smart enough to predict which folder to move the email to, when you click move.

Ability to setup or sync the search folders setup on exchange.

When moving emails from your inbox to folders, I would like to see smart AI which suggests which folder to move the email to (like what the apple mail app allows). It can be frustrating when you have lots of folders to scroll through them all to file away emails.

Yes some sort of suggested folder system or a way to get to folders faster.

Apple Mail app has a great feature that ‘suggests’ folders when moving emails based on historical movements within the email.
Outlook app needs this, it saves so much time!
One good thing the Mail App does in iOS is when I hit the folder in iOS it tries guess what folder I want to send it to. It learns what emails I get and where I file them. It keeps me from scrolling through all the folders I have. I hope that makes sense.

Make the “Move” message feature smart, by using sender/receiver, subject and content to suggest appropriate subfolder for filing on Exchange and IMAP accounts.
When sending a new (or reply) message, give optional feature to automatically prompt user to move message (or original and reply) to a folder.
I have an add-in for Outlook for Windows that does this and it is an incredible time-saver.

Some emails are so useless I can’t even be bothered to mark them as read. If outlook notice over a period that I don’t interact with certain senders/ subjects then just mark them as low priority or in a frequently ignored bucket and just mark them as read with regard to the main email unread count but ensure the status is maintained unread in the low priority/ frequently ignored bucket until it is actually read.

This is a major miss in outlook compared to iOS default mail client

Guess where to file

Like the iPhone mail application, would be great if Outlook could learn and predict which mails should/could go to which folders when I select an email and select move folder

When moving emails to folders the Apple mail app finds folders with similar names as the email address or body. Ie a company name or where other emails from that individual are filed. This makes it so you don’t have to scroll through hundreds of folders on a small screen.
I honestly almost didn’t switch to Outlook app because this feature is so useful in the iOS Mail app.
Once you’ve moved a type of email to a specific folder a couple of time’s, the iOS mail app learns and remembers this so the next time you go to move that type of email, it suggests moving it to that folder. It means that you don’t have to scroll through all your folders to move an email.
An example is if you keep emails from Uber in a folder called “Uber” then the next time you get one and you tap the folder icon, it has the option to “Move to Uber”.
Saves so much time.

Support the syncing/display of Smart Folders that have been created in Outlook for Mac desktop. This would allow the user to take advantage of the advanced rules.
Outlook should know your emails need to be moved to based on email conversations. Similar to gmail.
If I need to move an email in a conversation or similar email from the same sender then when I select move, it should come up with the suggested mail box the other emails are located.

In my apple iphone email the function to move a message to a folder is using keywords from the message (subject?) and then predicts mostly quite accurate to which folder it should be moved. Saves a couple of steps in most cases!
