I use a very important group mailbox for my work every day, however I cannot access it in the mobile outlook app. Would love for you guys to add group mailbox support
Outlook for iOS is so far behind Outlook on Windows or the web and sadly has not much to show in the way of improvements since it has been released.
Message and Mailbox Folder Management - Say you have a lot of messages in your inbox. Now you would like to move some number of those messages to a folder - the same folder. Wouldn’t it be nice to select the messages and then select move to folder, select the folder, AND ALL OF THE SELECTED messages get moved!!!! Brilliant yes? Not with this Outlook. Only the top message gets moved.
Wouldn’t it be nice if you had to move multiple messages to the same folder that upon the 2nd message to be moved, the ‘Move to Folder’ displays the last folder you moved messages to? Brilliant yes?? That would really be useful if it remembered the last 3-5 folders that were selected.
I have two personal and a work mailbox. It can take me a moment to put context around the email subject I’m reading which can be frustrating. I’m more worried about accidental replying to a work email as if it were a personal email. The other applications seem to have a logical separation between them, so mimicking it would be nice. As always, make it optional.

Allow me to view a d sync my group mailboxes on my phone
Mailbox fills up quickly and am unable to receive messages

For multiple mailboxes in Outlook, It would be nice to have the full email address of the account to identify which mailbox I am in right now. Also, it would be nice to be able to change or name the Icons on the left to know the which mailbox I open.

I agree. In addition to my individual work acct, I have a group mailbox I am part of. It is not a separate account with a password. I can view the mailbox on my laptop and PC fine, but on the iOS app on my iPhone, i can only view my individual account. I need to get in that group box!

Collapse folder option like desktop version.

New Mails from other email addresses (not Outlook or Hotmail) are not shown on the main mailbox. I need to open the other folders to check if there are new mails. Notifications are also from the Hotmail and not from other email addresses

I NEED this! Currently, I have to forward email from the group mailboxes to my inbox and I can tell if it has been taken care of by someone else without reading all of the emails! Very annoying!
Like on the Windows 10 Mail app, please let me group mailboxes so I can view multiple mailboxes together.
For example, if I have an Outlook.com account, personal Office 365 account, and work Office 365 accounts setup, I want to be able to have a personal group and a work group.
This way I can select the personal group in the evenings and weekends and see all items in those inboxes together without seeing work-related e-mails. Then during working hours I could tap the work group icon in the slide out menu to focus on work e-mails.
Without this I can’t move my many work mailboxes over from Apple Mail - purely because I don’t want to see work emails mixed in with personal ones.
Another option may be to support profiles like Edge where I can switch between my MSA and WSA depending what I’m doing.
Keep up the great work!

It is difficult to add, delete and edit contacts in group. When I edit individual contacts it is not automatically reflected in the group contacts.

It’s is a very practical functionality. I am really surprised that developers did not include it from the beginning

Search function to find emails in Group mailboxes as a default on Outlook for iOS - consistent to Outlook for Mac and Outlook on Web.

Shared mailbox support is important for my business. It should be available as it was in old app.

Hi, I’d like to believe if you offer a feature such as a group mailbox, you should automatically make it available on mobile app. Otherwise what’s the point? Please add feature back app. It used to be available. Thank you!
Need delegated mailbox and group mailbox support in outlook mobile app.

In the web app it's possible to send an email as a group. But it can't be done on iOS app
Katsi Yuen commented
Surprised opening shared calendars had come before mailboxes and surely more people wants this feature... Not just 120 something 😰
