Group mailbox

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

    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!

    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

    This really is a business requirement please fix this many of us have support mailboxes where remote/mobile access is vital !

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

    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!

    Surprised opening shared calendars had come before mailboxes and surely more people wants this feature... Not just 120 something 😰

    I often have emails I would like to flag for future needs. I would like a separate section for flagged messages that is not in the current email list.
