Local Data management
It is important to know the amount of local data the app is using and option to manage them is required

so never stops growing, of I wanted a client I would have found a mail service with client like storage. oh that's what this is
I’d like a way to not store so many emails on my phone. I’d like to control and limit how many emails are visible on my lhone

This app is taking up loads of unnecessary storage on my phone because when it downloads files locally you can’t delete them like you can on say teams.

Currently, Outlook stores downloaded mail in its private data directory, meaning I can't clear it without clearing settings. So it keeps caching mail to the point that I don't have enough space to install updates, and Android gives me the "critically low storage" notification (Android 6.0.1)
Ability to filter by email size so I can get within my storage allocation quickly!
This app is huge; it takes up at least 0.5GB, and you recommend at least 1GB. I understand most of that is for data caching, but some people would prefer a slower experience with less data. It’d be nice to be able to configure how many emails get stored locally, and how much of them do (ie just the subject and sender, or the whole thing). Also, a button to clear the cache like most other apps have would be nice.
Currently there is no options to store more emails on my phone. By using this app I can only have my most recent 1000 emails or 30 days worth of emails. At least give me the option to store more than your predetermined amount so I can store as many as I choose or I will have to use the default app for the phones so I can store those important emails.
Had a situation where I needed to access a travel itinerary for work and since it was booked over 30 days prior I was not able to access it from my phone and had to wait til I was about to access my computer to print it off so I could have it.

Need the ability to add a LOCAL (on iPad or iPhone) folder / subfolder in Outlook for iOS (iPhone, iPad), in the same way one can add them in Outlook for Windows ?
Not on a server but on the device itself.
Thank you very much,
Best regards - andre

Please add a feature of storage management like whether to store old mails and attachments in phone or not.
I hope this kind of feature would come in the near future updates.

50 GB means I am forced to end 365. I will not renew. You win Microsoft, keep your stingy 50G limit. switching to Google.

I have the 512 gb iPhone and would like to download all my folders and emails on to my device

No need for special camera just use camera app. No need for special for storage just use phone storage. Microsoft apps don't have to feel like prison.
How to find out size on outlook !?!
Mik en Bieke Vanherpe-Demeyer commented
The app itself has a certain size, not much we can do about that. But after years of usage the storage required for messages and/or folders synced (maybe even just once), grows and grows... to unacceptable sizes.
It should be possible to limit the size of the data (either by the OS of tablet or phone, or by setting in the app itself)

The new app is slower and takes up more storage than my previous apps

I believe that Outlook currently only stores one months worth of emails locally. To search through more emails requires that a person “load more messages”. With today’s device storage capacity and with the way people are using tablets as laptops, it would be very useful if we could have the option to store more emails on our device rather than having to "load more messages". Thanks for your consideration.
I hate that there is such a small limit to the amount of emails I can have. I use outlook for my school email and I have to delete everything in my mailbox every few weeks because there is almost no storage.

constantly being plagued to delete items isn’t the best use of my time
the option. to download mail would be an excellent addition
Toni Underwood commented
2 GB is not enough storage for the company I work for. Stressful to keep deleting everyday
Muhib Shariff commented
Increase the storage as 2gb is not sufficient for office use
