Full screen email reading view in landscape mode
There is too much clutter in landscape mode to make the reading useful. It would make the reading much more useful if we could remove all the icons and other clutter and have a full screen reading mode in landscape. It would be particularly useful when reading reports with graphs and tables.

Like to see 24 hours without scrolling in 7 days calendar landscape.
User might shrink time scale by touch.
App should remember users adjustment in new session.
Start view (mail or calendar) should be a user pre-selection.

Need full screen option for reading emails in landscape. The top and bottom bars take up way too much space. They should be able to be hidden by taping the screen or pushing a button to make it full screen with only a small x to close out of it. I have already opened a help case and they told me to submit this feature request.
I suggest to have a dynamic full screen in both landscape and portrait mode.
On my mobile device, some emails are too wide to read easily, as either the text is too small, or I have to pan back and forth while zoomed in. I used to be able to rotate my device, and Outlook would use the whole width for the email message, allowing me to read effectively. Now, however, Outlook wants to show me a sidebar next to the message when I rotate my device, making the horizontal message view even less effective than the vertical view. What gives? Folks with less than perfect eyesight need wide views on mobile devices in order to see effectively. Please bring back that ability!
When viewing emails in landscape mode the email should be in “full screen” the same as iPhone’s ‘mail’.
I’ve just realized this morning that I would really benefit from a reading mode. Some messages have very small font, and every bit of screen size available makes a difference. The ability to hide the reply bar and rest of the buttons on screen would be great. Experience should be like the built-in photos app. (Single tap a photo to remove everything besides the picture itself.) That would be discoverable and intuitive.
When I turn an email to landscape view on my phone, I would like all the menu bar to go away. I'd like the message bar to disappear.
Having to hit a "maximize" button is not efficient. Also I'd like the message to take up the entire viewport.
