Mark as read
Can you include an option so that when you move an email to another folder it does not automatically Mark the next email as read? Moving one does not mean I'm finished with the next.
It would make it so much easier, I need to have no notifications so I know if I have a new one and it would be easier to just do it all at once
I am unable to mark emails that are protected by Information Rights Management as Read. After I open them on my phone they remain Unread. If I mark them as Read they will still stay marked as Unread
As outlook currently stands, the message will mark as read when you hit the back arrow. So if I read a message and close the app with the message open the app still shows that I have one new message. In order to clear the notification, I have to reopen the app, pull up the email, hit the back arrow, and then the notification clears. What is the point of this? I already read the message.
Be able to mark all unread messages as read
When swiping down from an iOS notification on an incoming Outlook email, choosing Mark As Read still leaves the notification badge on the app.

Need ability to mark the email as read as soon as the user opens it
Have an option to mark as read when inbox item is selected not just when you move next the inbox email. I thought we had this a few months back?
Used to work like this and then suddenly was changed on an update about 6 months ago, has remained in all future updates ever since.
In the past when you click on an email to view it, this makes an email as READ.
Please go back to this!!
On the new updates you click on an email, read it, and the email is still marked as UNREAD. The only time it is marked as Read is when you click on a different email.
It’s really annoying. Please add this feature/go back to the old way. Only seems to be an issue on the mobile version of the app and works fine on the desktop site.

Once you’ve selected all, how do you mark as read it on mobile iOS
In the desktop version of outlook, there is an option to stop checking off email as read after clicking on it. This requires a manual mark to mark email read. Can thy option be brought to mobile outlook?
Please add the ability to mark an email as read as soon as it is selected. The feature is available on the desktop app, but not on mobile.
There needs to be an option to automatically mark messages as read when you view them be it straight away or after a few seconds. I can’t seem to find this option anywhere in the settings and am having to swipe every email to mark them as read. I would have thought this would be a basic feature of the app but it not being there is a serious flaw.
Right now you can’t easily add an e-mail from a sender to your ‘safe sender’ list (in the Spam folder). Would be great if that’s possible so I don’t have to go on my desktop to add them all manually :)
Add ability to drag the blue dot next to messages in the inbox, and drop them away to mark message as read.
Need to be fixed
Very annoying! Please fix!
Currently you can’t open an email in a thread, then make it as unread without leaving and reopening the message.
Adding this feature will resolve that behavior.

Every time, i need to open the outlook app in my iPhone and read the emails again which is frustrating
