Apply same rules as desktop app
I set rules in outlook on my PC (for example email notifications to move to a particular folder). When I check my emails from the mobile app, the rules I have created don’t apply until I log in from my PC. I would like all rules I created from desktop app to apply on the mobile app automatically.
Yes, this is quite frustrating when mobile for an extended period of time. The ability to search and apply rules would be extremely helpful.

Indeed, would be good to replicate rules on the ios app. Especially BCC rules.
Outside a computer cannot identify a path to access and/or write mail processing rules
Would like to automatically delete mail older than 90 days. Especially in unfocused “other” folder.

Rules would be a brilliant idea 💡
Looking forward to seeing new features from outlook developer experts

Yes, just add the ability to set rules to the mobile app! I usually work on my iPad pro, not on desktop, so sometimes it takes months before I can sit down and make rules. And by then, I have moved a gazillion emails by hand over and over again - it would be SO helpful if the app would at least predict what folders I want my emails in, and to remember that if I have moved three emails from the same sender to the "Other" inbox on whichever of my devices, I want ALL their emails to go to the "Other" inbox (i.e. emails about theater performances all sent from the same theater's email address). I'm going to have to find a better mail app, and I am paying for this one!!
The ability to make rules like on the desk top application.for example automatic delete or archive after 5 days.
