The ability to see rules and create rules for an entire domain. I frequently have emails from users within my domain that make it into the non-focused inbox.
I would like a way of forcing all emails from my users into my focused inbox.

Be able to apply rules to incoming emails to change the font color, or apply a background hue so that you can visually see internal vs. external emails, or emails from a specific domain or with specific words/subjects. This feature almost exists on the desktop version (you can color the font), but applying a background color (very faint) would be more useful. have it apply to both Desktop and iOS versions.
Senders are still going to junk even after rules are set in outlook online.
It’s shocking to me that a trillion dollar company cannot figure out how to block obvious spam. I’m receiving bizarre email after bizarre email from every odd address under the sun and somehow, rather than being blocked automatically, or at least sentenced to junk, I’m seeing the emails in my main inbox and needing to remove them myself. Please give me the ability to highlight an individual word or phrase and block future similar words/phrases by “Easy Rule Creation”.
Currently, you have to do it from a desktop/laptop web browser, then re-launch the app to see the rules in play.
Why can I not put rules on messages so that I can direct spam or direct certain senders to certain folders?
There may very well be a way to do this already but I’d like to be able to assign incoming email addresses to their own folders so I don’t have to manually do it.
Need a delay rule when sending letters.

Add the ability to create rules and quick steps like on Office 365.
Is there anyway to create rules or run rules already created?

rules so when emails are delivered the automatically go to given destination folders
Have the ability to create inbox rules; ie filter a certain sender(s) or subject title(s) into the same folder automatically, automatic responses etc.
This feature is available on desktop, and should be expanded to the app!
I would love to have rules that auto assign to folders also with other features.

I need rules. This spam is killing me.
My email was hacked and a new rule was created re-directing all Incoming messages directly to Deleted Items. I could easily find “Rules” to fix the problem. Having a settings gear icon that would take me directly to “settings’ where I could change or create ‘Rules” would be helpful. I could not easily find a way to get to “rules”. I did finally find what I needed but getting there was way too difficult. Even having a search within Outlook help section would have helped. Rules was no where to be found. Thanks for considering the suggestion.
1. Allow features to clean your inbox better by letting someone delete emails in a date range in the mobile app
2. Allow the functionality of rules in the mobile app
I’m trying to use a dormant account just for access and need to set a rule to mark all as read as the email is sent.
I need to print only attachment (IE. invoices, PO) received for an email account automated.
I received nearly 100 email/day and I need only to print the attachment, without printing the mail (that has no data, only attachment) avoiding whistling of paper. I need to be able to create a rule that move all email received from a specific account, then print only attachment and set email as processed.
We should have features that whatever rule we have on Outlook /office365 it should work across the platform regardless from where your accessing your account.
When you make serious work of your Spam you need good Rules. That is perfect in Outlook! What I miss is a Sort function in the specific rules, so you do not have to add a sender twice. Thank you in advance. Best Regards, Robert
