Default email account
Please fix the feature that continually resets the default email account to hotmail/outlook. I want to be able to change my default account and make it stick.
If you use a 365 account you can set your default account to whatever you want. It’s very inconvenient that you can’t do it with this app and results in many emails going from the wrong address
We often have multiple email accounts in the app. But the default email can only select one among all the aliases of all accounts. If we want to send email from another account other than the one associated with default email, the send from email is usually the account login email, which isn’t always the one we use in that account. So it’s better to enable default email for each account. Another option could be remove the aliases that we won’t use to send email from the list so we can still receive emails sent to these alias, but they won’t be in the send from list so We could avoid accidentally send email with them.
I made a big mistake, I sent an eMail to my boss from my personal email.
Because Outlook mix and shuffle contacts together.,
Please outlook support, when I write an email from an account and select a recipient SHOW ONLY CONTACTS FROM THAT VERY ACCOUNT, LIMITED.
Outlook should be productive not miserabltive!
I used to be able to set my default “send-from” address, but can no longer see it. Now I have to select it from the drop down each time I compose a message. Please bring back!!

I have a premium account and figured by paying it would allow me to send from my default account also on the outlook mail app, however, support told me that this feature doesn’t work on the app currently.......WHAT A JOKE!
Im starting to ask myself why did I pay for premium..
A way to set a particular account to be the first one to open up when I open the app. For example: I have my personal email address (outlook) and my work email address (exchange) both on this app, but I would prefer to only see my personal email when I first open the app and switch to the work one when needed. Thanks!
Allow user to choose a default account to launch upon opening the application or choose hours when one account should open as default instead of another. This is helpful when trying to check personal email outside of working hours, and avoid reading work emails. Recently the app seems to be opening email accounts as default based on usage, but if you are trying to take a break from work email this new feature gets annoying
I have multiple jobs and therefore multiple outlook accounts. When trying to shoot off an email in a hurry, it can be easy to forget to change the sending address. A feature that before an email is sent confirms which address you want it sent from if you have multiple accounts would be helpful. Perhaps if that isn’t possible, a feature that requires you to select a sending address for each email you are sending for a thread you initiated (not a reply to someone who already sent mail to the proper account).
Considering I am in healthcare, it would be easy to violate HIPAA this way. Fortunately that hasn’t happened, but aside from that it looks unprofessional.
Every time outlook iOS seems to update my default mail account is knocked back to my iCloud mail account from my msn/outlook email account. Annoying glitch.
When setting up the main account e.g. default account, signature, out off office response it should give the option to use on all devices where outlook is set up. Thank you

When you delete in this app it doesn’t delete in the main email box and it should.
Why doesn’t this happen?

Appointments I set on my phone frequently get overlooked as I forget to choose my primary calendar. It would be ideal to have the ability to choose a default.

Assign an account to be main and the others to be dormant.

If you use apple’s e-mail client, it is able to remember witch e-mail account to use om a contact. So that if you send a mail to a person, and you have several e-mail accounts om Tour phone, that e-mail you send Will come from the right e-mail account.
As it is right now, you have to pick the sender e-mail your self.
I agree. We need the ability to set the default inbox, which can be the all inbox or a specified inbox. There are time where I am in a specified inbox and then Outlook resorts to the all inbox. Or allow me to add an account for their calendar only and not the inbox. My use case is that I need to bring another calendar to overlay my work calendar since I use Outlook for work.
Amanda Alvarado commented
Can it be set so that the default inbox isn’t all?
I have my ppl added so I can manage calendars however I don’t want to reply to a message and learn that it’s actually for a boss and not myself.

Please provide an option in settings to make the outlook default and override the “Mail” provided by Apple.

I would like to be able to chose what emails are in my featured emails. I want my important emails to show up on the main screen. I am not sure who chooses to put them where but I would like to move some of them.
