    Please implement a setting to show latest emails on top of a thread (instead of below). THANKS!!

  • Lars Enblom commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    Let the mail in a mail thread appear in date order.
    With the newest on top.
    It is very confusing ehen clicking on a newly recieved mail and it appears in the middle, with older mails both above and below.

    Currently, the Outlook iOS app only allows threads to be organized in one direction... oldest to newest. I think it should also allow newest to oldest, as you see in both the native Mail app as well as desktop Outlook.

    Messages in a thread should be newest on top. Oldest on top is odd. Have have never encountered another program the puts the oldest on top in a thread.

    Requesting feature to customize display order of emails when organized by thread is enabled.

    For some reason my brain is wired to always see latest email on top followed by remaining conversations at bottom, right now it’s reversed in the app so lot of retraining of brain :)

    Change the order of the thread so the latest email is at the top vs at the bottom, so you don’t have to scroll down.

    The desktop mail app put older emails at bottom. WHY DOES THE APP HAVE OPPOSITE METHOD??? Ugh. So annoying.

  • Jean-Claude Jung commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    Feature parity of Outlook is widely different (PC, macOS, Web, iOS, etc). Newest on Top is biggest pain and I need to switch to another Email client e.g. Apple Mail to get newest on top. Not sure why MS is not able to get at least this functionality equal on all Outlook flavors!?

  • Justin Quinn commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    Reading an email thread you should be able to read the newest email at the top. This should be a feature.

    This request seems being ignored by MS.

    I’m using the Apple Mail app again.

  • W. commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    In conversations (right panel), messages to be sorted with the newest on top and oldest on the bottom. No scrolling down for last reply.

  • Kat Friesen commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    Make an option to have the most recent message in a message chain first as opposed to last.
