Sync all folders.
In order to be an enterprise solution it needs to sync all folders.
I also want to confirm, that the sync period of 30 days is too short.
-> it should be adjustable in the settings
-> there should become override e.g. like scrolling below the end of the list to force to sync more.
-> „for me“ Outlook can cleanup the additional synced objects after x days. I only need the option to sync more, if I have to look for an older mail!
I think I’m recent version (months ago) it was possible to sync more than 30 days and to force loading older mails. Or I didn‘t realize it before but today I‘m really missing it!
This is definitely needed in an enterprise environment. Sync options should be able to customisable to allow;
- choosing folders to sync,
- and the sync period.
If not anything, absence of this feature kills the threaded view. When you move an email to a folder and a new message arrives in the same thread, you don’t see the messages previously moved to subfolders in the same thread. To achieve this visibility, you need to go and individually sync all subfolders, which is not a solution at all.
This should be the number one priority. It’s a shame that this client does not have such basic features.

Provide a means to force sync of an account or an individual folder in an account.
Would be very useful to ensure that e.g. deletions or folder empty are synced to the Imap server immediately after they are done when working with accounts on multiple devices
The 30 days limit is a total inconvenience.
I really don’t understand 30 days limit with
Exchange sync? Allow users to select sync period or at least allow to sync ALL DAYS. For enterprise app this is a must!

I need my folders and subfolders to automatically update as messages come in. Right now I have to tap on each folder for it to update. That makes me have to go into each folder to find the new message. This is very cumbersome. The app should work like outlook on my PC. When a message comes in it goes to the correct folder and shows the number of new-unread messages. Can you work on this ASAP??? This should be a standard feature.
Hello My IOS app only get the lat 300 days emails please change this option, at least we should have the choice, 1 months, 2 months etc... and no limit,

Would be nice to have all sub folders sync and update to show new messages without having to click on each one
Like others on this forum, why don’t you allow users to choose sub folders on an account that they want to auto sync like the inbox does? Just about any halfway decent mobile email client does this already.
Dear outlook team
Outlook is not notifying immediately when I receiving new mails
I need to open outlook timely and need to click refresh again again to load new mails.
Provide option of auto sync immediate when new mail receive.
Kindly check and please do need full.
My model : IPhone XR
I have rules set to auto move email to certain folders but this app doesn’t auto sync/check anything but Inbox.
It would be nice to have other folders sync and notify when items are delivered in this app.
The system should synchronize all e-mails in the account. I often have to find an older e-mails, but the system only goes 30 days back in time and therefore I still sometimes need to use alternate e-mail programs on my iPhone.
It would be nice if Outlook could synchronize all e-mails nomatter how old they are.
Syncing used to be for all folders and could go back in time. Same for Search. Now syncing is limited in time and search is hence often useless
Preferably option to select additional folders to sync (in addition to Inbox)
Almost missed a very important e-mail due to the lack of automatic sync across the subfolder structure. Thankfully my phone does this and I was able to respond.
Hi, it would be great if all folders linked to a mailbox could update and sync continuously without the need to go into each specific folder. I see the notifications suggestions is there too so these might be combined
I create an email folder for each client. When I am done with that client I delete the folder off of my desktop computer. However it does not delete off of my phone. I have over 100 folders that I cannot delete off of my phone. This makes it hard to find the ones that are current
Syncing all emails would be wonderful when you’re blocked out one account.
1.1 T of Market Cap, no sync all folder! shame on you!
