Don't download attachments automatically
For privacy and data usage

There should be a feature in mobile outlook to download mail.

Be able to pause auto-downloading of emails until switch is toggled back on
This is ridiculous. Even the **** stock ios mail app has the ability to block remote content. Come on Microsoft... or are you deliberately holding back essential features from this platform to make windows phones look better?

Like the MAIL app in iPhone facilitates downloading emails without opening the application, same should be a feature in Outlook app.
Right now, user has to open the outlook app and then the email gets downaloded.
Why, Microsoft? Why can't you spend a small amount of time and fix this? With all of the privacy issues, today, you're allowing wasted bandwidth and information to flow to malicious entities.
Only since 2015? Why don't you just tell us you'll not be fixing it?

With option to load manually. Thought this is standard feature?
Greg Feinberg commented
Option to only download mail text only (no attachments) when roaming
- attachments to only download on demand

In other mail apps you can disable the automatic download of graphics, but here I didn‘t find this option. It can be advantageously, if no WiFi is available and the mobile data volume is limited.
I like the Outlook app in general but being able to block remote content downloads is a must-have feature these days. Best to use a different mail client until this is resolved.

Is there any way to stop images from downloading automatically in the iOS app? This is a feature that’s available for the desktop and web apps, to stop spammers from getting feedback on read e-mails, for example. I don’t seem to be able to find a similar option for the mobile app. There is an option for the native iOS app, Mail, however.

This post has been under review for 2.5 years. Are you really reviewing it?

Option required to not automatically download email images in Outlook for iOS and Android. This would help to cut down on Spam / Junk email. It would also help to reduce the amount of mobile / cell data used when required. Outlook for Windows PCs already offer this.

On computer and in many other email programs We are offered the option of limiting what automatically be shown or being able to set a maximum KB. Thus an email opens up both quick and safely using little or no space on our devices.

I received zip file as attachment. On selecting it, Outlook downloaded at 5 mb of it and later shows me message that attachment type is not supported. That seems backwards. Why not check the type before downloading?

Long e-mails with exel copy doesnt display correctly. Only full display when press reply and click on display complete mail

From a security perspective, I would highly suggest to have an option to stop automatic download of images and attachments when opening email in iOS app. Other email apps provide it and find it extremely useful. I like outlook app except for non availability of this feature. Suggest this be added at the earliest

Only download images from senders that are trusted, I would like this option on each sender just like outlook desktop version works. At least disable automatic download of images as default, and give the user a option to download images when viewing the email

If a message is being viewed in the Spam folder it should not download any external content, just raw text view ideally
