Ios mail app has the functionality to minimize drafts to the bottom of the screen so you can search your inbox for information and then come back to writing your draft.

Currently, I can only draft or view emails at any one time. Would Outlook go one step further and allow users to draft and view emails at the same time? Drafting emails sometimes requires reference to past emails. The current flow is quite cumbersome. There should be a way to minimise drafts instead of closing them completely, just like Apple’s default mail app.

Not sure why, but within the last 3-6 weeks, my screen “sticks” and won’t allow me to scroll up or down after I edit a draft email. It sometimes happens when when writing a new email and then I scroll back up and change something already written. I have to save the draft, then reopen it for the screen to “unstick” ... can you please fix this?
Currently there is no way to view the calendar when composing an email. This is obviously a problem when I need to look my calendar when discussing a commitment in the future.
Show a tab or other way to switch to be calendar view when composing an email.

Would be nice to be able start a email and then go back and look at your email and then go back to your email that you had started. Like your able to do with the Apple email app.

Small moveable screen to minimize email while still open to view email and scroll to next email to view will help when trying to compose new emails and reply to multiple people at one time while staying on topic...
Echo comments about not being able to browse calendar while composing an email. This is a significant workflow setback compared to using Apple Mail + Calendar. Minimizing an email without having to invoke the Draft workflow seems an obvious catch up to other applications.
Would be good to be able to pause the composition of an email to allow the inbox to be reviewed. In the IOS native email app, one can swipe down on an inprogress email to look through the inbox for information. In this app you need to save to drafts and then go find the email in the drafts folder which takes too much time.

Cannot switch between half written emails to check calendar without losing email.
Really don’t like it vs previous iPhone standard email & Callendar

Sometimes I want to copy/paste out of an existing email while in the middle of composing a draft. I don’t want to have to save the draft/close the draft, open the source email to copy, close that email, then go back to my Drafts folder to find the email I was composing. Let me swipe down to minimize the draft, select an email to copy text from, then swipe up to maximize the draft to paste to.

Hi, make the calendar available for viewing while writing an email

Ability to move between emails in the inbox while composing a new message - floating window?
Ajan Paul commented
Whenever I’m writing a long email, and want to see the top parts of the email, the slightest scroll makes the application come out of the draft view and goes to the email I’m drafting a reply to. This becomes really frustrating at times.
Steve McCready commented
Please introduce a capability to minimise a draft as in the default Mail app - saving the draft, finding the info you want, and then having to go into drafts to kick it off again is a major annoyance.
Edward Curry-Hyde commented
Want to be able to review other emails whilst drafting a new email. Should be able to hide the draft and search through other emails

Hi something has changed for the worse when replying a small box comes up but when you need to check something within the body it difficult to see where the reply this is fairly new change and is difficult on mobile phones
Can this be changed back
Tom Morgan commented
Similar to how twitter client works; would be cool if a force/long press on the compose icon showed your drafts and let you pick and continue working on that draft. I often have to save a draft whilst I go and look up a name or some information in another email, then come back to finish the email, and then have to scroll through a million folders to find the Drafts folder!

I have to save my mail as draft to browse in any other mails in app. When I finished browsing I need to go to draft folder and open it again. It is slow and complicated. Please check Apple Mails application.
Kevon Fernando commented
It’s really annoying to have to stop writing the email and save as a draft when you want to take quick look at your other emails. Please solve this huge issue like Apple did in the standard mail application in iOS 11. It’s an tiny thing but does do a huge difference (positive) in the usability of the app. Especially because writing an email is a key feature of an email app.
inability minimize draft message is infuriating,
