White Bars in Fullscreen Mode
The Outlook app for IOS has a frustrating problem with one of the features. The problem is the unnecessary white bars you get on the left and right side of the emails when you click the Fullscreen Icon to switch from the default Split View when viewing an email in Landscape mode. This serves no purpose other than cropping the viewable area for emails.
Here are the steps:
1) Open Outlook.
2) Physically, turn your device to Landscape View.
3) Open any Email.
4) Click on the Fullscreen Icon Located Next to the "Send a New Email" Icon.
Then, instead of showing me my emails in Fullscreen, the app shows white bars on the sides of the email and do not disappear even if zoomed in on the email. This just takes up unnecessary space on the display and gives a lot of frustration to users whether they have a smaller display or a larger display phones.
I have a large display phone and this just crops my viewing area for no reason. The people I know that do have smaller display phones have it even worse because first, their phones already have small displays and second, the app gives them white bars on the sides and crops their email viewing area even more.
Some time ago, the app had a similar issue that it would show white bars while in the regular split view but that was patched and it looks like this exact same issue went unnoticed for the Fullscreen mode.
Here is a Google Photos Link for the screenshots.

When scrolling through email in Dark Mode, I can’t tell how far down I am because the scroll bar is too dark. Please lighten similar to Twitter’s. Thanks.

I don’t know when it started, but now Outlook doesn’t have option to show cropped area of email which was available at earlier release.
Only I can do now is Reply or Forward it and see full contents inside of reply or forward email body.
I think it’s not right.
I also don’t want to click show cropped contest every time.
Please make it as option whether supporting crop or always unlimited.
