Add to rules in app
I auto filter certain emails recipients to folders through rules to streamline my inbox, so it would be great if thru the app you can update rules. I often want to add or update a rule which it seems you can’t do.
Rules to forward filtered email to folders
In the regular outlook people are able to designate emails to go to new folders, those are their “rules.” These rules can be deleted and edited later on but you can’t delete or change them from within the app. This feature would be so helpful.
Rules! Rules! Rules!

It would be great if we could create rules and send emails to respective folders on the app without having to do it on a desktop to create rules. Also when I did create rules on a desktop, they appear and work on the app but everytime I received an email where there was rule in place, the app does not notify of new mail. Only mail which does not have a rule in place and goes straight to normal inbox creates a notification. That is quite frustrating. Many missed emails. I have had to stop using rules and creating individual folders with rules.

I manage quite a number of servers, each of which gets a nightly backup, which then advises me, for each server of the backup success (or failure) of each of them individually. Have a rule on my desktop pc that redirects them to folder, thus eliminating the nightly barrage of backup emails - no such capability exists with the IOS version; why not?
I would like to create rules to send mail to specific folders. Mainly to better the spam filter.

Add the capability to add rules like on the pc. Minimum capability should be to process all emails sent to or from a specific email address or domain to move them to an alternate folder rather than the inbox.

When I move an email to unfocused, it lets me set a rule to always do it, but only based on sender. Would love to also be able to do it based on subject, a search term in the body, listserv, etc, or a combination.

After moving an email from focused, it asks if I always want to do that. But all the existing ones stay put. Would be nice to be able to apply it to all (or some) existing emails that also fall under the rule.
Block sender and add rules on mobile version. Spam is increasing daily. Very annoying since functionality is already years available on pc version.

Add Rules creation and running in App. It is one of the big differentiations for Outlook

Ability to replicate Desktop App rules. At least Mailbox Rules (not those applied to local files or PST files)

I would love to be able to create rules that auto forward emails from a particular sender.
Yes, we need rules management und usage in the outlook iOS App.
I am an outlook 365 user and I have many outlook rules which are only executed if I start Outlook on my Windows 10 client. The rules were not executed in the iOS outlook app. Why? Is it possible to do that? And also manage the ruleset. Thanks
