Get rid of “Read More” button.
Having a “Read More” button in long emails is stupid. I opened the email because I wanted to read it. Not just the first few paragraphs.
And if you insist on having this then at least have the button work properly. Currently hitting “Read More” just opens the email in a new window and takes you back to the top of the email. So then you’re left scrolling through trying to find where you were at and completely lose your train of thought.
If microsoft wants to focus on efficiency for the user this is not how to do it. If it’s a lame data tracking tool I would rethink that plan quickly.

Allow me to read long messages without having to click a Read More button. I should just be able to scroll to the end without having to go to a popover screen. That’s a terrible UX.
Option to deactivate the „read more“-button in large Emails.
It’s 2020. Our devices can handle it. If I dudhh by recant to load the whole email, I wouldn’t have opened it!

It has to be the worst feature on an email app... why on earth wouldn’t you want to read the whole email, defeats the point of using an email app, get rid of it please
Get rid of the Read More and opening a new window. If you’re going to make a ne window, at least let’s us swipe out of it instead of having to hit the X in the top left. It’s very annoying. Also, the search feature is useless and nothing compared to the real Outlook. We should be able to search specific folders and exact wording. I can’t ever find anything in the mobile app. I have to load up the desktop app when I need to search.
Why ‚read more‘ button in ios app ? is it to simple just scroll further in the mail and show it without pressing that idiot button ?
Kill the annoying “read more” feature! I want to see each email in full on one screen!

I won’t be using the outlook mail for ios anymore until the “read more”feature is disabled, it is so annoying! It is unbelieveable microsoft has not got rid of it yet..ò
Hi! Kill the annoying “read more” feature, let me read emails in full on one screen.

I am so annoyed by this that I am returning to the native email app on my iOS devices.
I would like to See always the Full Text of my Mail in Order Not to press the Button „Read More“

I would also like read more to go away, both because it loses my place in the email I was reading, but also because it has to be re-triggered if I leave the app for a moment.
When reading a newsletter, there are often links to related material on the web. Each time I click one of those, take a few minutes to read the online material, and then return to Outlook, I have to go through the whole rigmarole again.
Some emails do not render any part of the body and all you are presented with is a "Read More" button. After opening a case with Microsoft, I was told that this is caused by email's large HTML headers. I believe the code can be improved by:
1. Make Read More feature user controlled. User should be able to toggle it on/off as desired.
2. The Outlook app code should handle "large headers" and just show the email body if it runs into large headers instead of just showing a read more button.
Be able to the whole email instead for long emails having to press more at the bottom then see it.
Make it simple ?
Also dark mode needs work
Please show entire email in the preview pane and remove the more button. It not, please bring email in full view page to the point where the email in the preview pane truncated the email. Have to scroll to the spot where the email was truncated is extremely annoying.
Hello, its quite bothering that longer mails, i.e. newsletters, if you have read half through, „Read more“ appears, and if click on it, only then the rest of the mail is downloaded - but in a different way. The layout is smaller, you need to scroll down to the position where you have been before you opened the rest of the mail.. i could not see any sense. Either you switch it off or allow individual settings. Best regards, Reinhard

I have a kind wish. I do not understand, why the long emails are cut and I have to open a new window to read it to the end. It is frustrating. Other email clients are able to show the whole email. If you are not willing to change this, please, make it at least an option.
Can we at least have a “show whole email” button at the top of the email, not lose scrolling position when the read more button is pressed on iPad, and not lose scrolling position always when I click on a link and then come back to my newsletter?
The Read More button is intrusive and useless. Why do you make me open an email twice? Maybe the button should read: are you sure you want to read this email you’ve been reading? Press Read More if you are sure. Is the dumbest thing to ask me to confirm what I already confirmed once.
